I am a stay-at-home Mom who needed a comfortable pair of decent black shoes with a modest heel to wear out (church, going out with friends, etc.). I am used to comfortable, flat shoes. That being said, these are comfortable when there isn\'t alot of walking or standing. Comfy toebox (and I have wide feet), cushy padding, shoe is generously sized. However, there is enough of a heel that I found them tiring to wear when walking all day long.

These shoes are very comfortable, but I agree with some previous reviewers. They run big. I almost always wear a 9.5, but these were shockingly roomy. I got a 9 and they fit great. I love the gray and black together!

Very cute shoes! It's hard to find a good shoe with a nice charcoal grey. This is nice, has a slight green cast to it but still very cute and goes with a lot of my dark grey clothes. I love the black detail w/the shiny and flat texture. Pretty comfy for a wedge too!

I agree with previous customers - they run big, buy a size smaller than normal. I had to send mine back the first time. Very comfortable to wear - sure beats wearing heels to work!

Great shoes! They fit perfectly. I have a high arch and it is hard to find shoes that fit. Plus, I spend my work days standing for 8-10 hours day and my feet don\'t hurt in these shoes.

I got these shoes in brown and love them! They're totally adorable and can dress up or down an outfit. Very comfortable - I've been walking around everywhere with them.The only thing is that if you wear them without socks, the front strap may rub a little on the foot.

I love these shoes! I wanted a wedge for the ease of walking with a bit of a heel and these are perfect. They are comfortable and have the interesting ribbons crisscrossing the toes, making them different but not too fussy. And the suede makes them a touch dressier. Love them!

Great shoes. Run big. If you are a 10, order 9.5. Wide toe box. Because I run my toenails cause me pain; these shoes are great if your toes hurt. Also, because of nerve pain in the balls on my feet I usually wear gym shoes everywhere; these are the first shoes in three years that I can wear all day without extreme pain. Thanks Zappos and Privo Barclay.

These felt fab even after hours on my feet walking on terrain as varied as the streets of London to the steep cobbled lanes in the villages of North England. There was just enough heel that I didn\'t have to worry about my trouser hems brushing the sidewalk. The comfort of a sneaker, with a polished look that will gain you admittance at Ritz for high tea. Perfect.

I have a similar Privo shoe (Berry) and was thrilled to see it available with a little bit of a heel. At first, I worried that the pointy decorative bit would rub the top of my foot, but after having worn the shoes several times without socks, there\'s been no discomfort at all. Some Privo shoes have a tendency to slip off the heel, but these are more firmly fitted. With the slightly raised heel and sturdier sole, I find them more comfortable than the Berry. They\'re shoes you can wear all day and neither your feet nor your sense of style will regret it. The only reason I didn\'t give it 5 stars for style is that I wouldn\'t have minded a little bit more heel, but it still works out to 5 stars overall.

True to Zappos claim. I received free return shipping for shoes that weren\'t to my daughters liking or fit. I had to call them to compare shoe types and needed help with the sizing. they were the most helpful and polite people. I could not ask for more. My daughter loves the Privo Barclay shoe it is comfortable and a good fit. We will be ordering all our shoes from Zappos.com

Beautiful! I love the look of this shoe. I got the grey and the black straps are such a cool contrast! I have high arches and I feel like there is little to no arch support, but the foot bed is pretty well padded and comfortable so it's not a problem. My usual size fits well, although my heel does slip out a bit when I walk, but this isn't uncomfortable either. The heel is a nice size and I love the slip resistant and flexible sole. The shoe feels tight on the knuckle of my big toe, but I think that has to do with my high arches. All in all, a well made, attractive and versatile shoe. A total keeper!

I can't stop wearing these shoes! I bought these shoes for an upcoming trip to Europe. I needed something fashionable and comfortable for walking city streets. These shoes exceeded my expectations! I almost feel like I'm walking on a pair of firm sponges. Although some reviewers felt these run a little large, they felt perfect in my size but it's probably because I have wide feet. Privo Barclays are well worth the money.

Very roomy! Like another reviewer, I also wear an 11 and found these to be pretty roomy. Many times I need a wide width but I sure didn't in these. I may send them back for a 10; that's how roomy they are. I'm not sure I can keep them on my feet when I'm walking; as comfy as they are, I fear they may fly off. These are super cute and stylish so I hope I can find a size that fits!

Cute, but run a little big - These are cute and have been fairly comfortable so far, but I'm not used to shoes in my size running so big. I wear an 11 so I can't go 1/2 size down - trying to decide if I want to risk them stretching.

Overall, a comfortable shoe. However, with the high ratings on this shoe, I think I expected more. They are comfortable, but after wearing them for a couple weeks now, I'm just not sure they are worth the money. I'd try a Privo again, but not sure if I'd ever buy these again. They are just "okay" to me.

Looking for shoes that are comfortable and attractive - almost impossible. But these are really comfortable, right out of the box. They are not as dumpy-looking as sneakers.

I have to agree with the rest of the reviewers, although these shoes are incredibly comfortable, they do run fairly large, and I'm a size 11. The only problem is that I wore these shoes straight to work after purchasing them because my feet ached from the heals I chose to wear that day. Not sure if there's anyway I can swap them out or not since I purchased these shoes from DSW.

These shoes are very comfy and I walked all over Manhattan during a business trip with no blisters. But as other reviewers have noted, these shoes run really large. I usually wear 8 1\/2, returned those for a size 8 and really wish I had gone done to 7 1\/2.

These are great maternity shoes! They may actually run a bit large and wide for normal feet, so you might consider going a half size smaller. But they're pretty good warm weather shoes for swollen and achy feet. The straps on top do take some breaking in, but other than that I've been pretty pleased with how easy they are to wear. Maybe a little clunky looking for my taste, but they do work for the office and weekends, so I can't complain. They would be great for traveling, too.

I really like the look of the shoes and the comfort of the footbed, but I can't seem to get the size right for my wide feet. Tried the size 7, which were too tight. The size 7.5 were pretty good on the first wearing, but now fall off my feet. I'm hoping I can make adjustments by adding padding.

I wear a solid size 7, and this shoe in size 7 was too big. I reordered it in a 6 1\/2, and now I have a good fit. The shoe is stylish and comfortable. My advise is to order the shoe in a 1\/2 size smaller than you usually wear.
