These are very nice looking shoes. Easy to wear to a formal party or with jeans. I wear a size 11, regular width, and the fit was perfect. I also like how the heel is wide but not clunky. Look is classy, but easy for me walk in without doing a balancing act.

If you like pain, buy these. I have never bought such a painful shoe. The front is like wearing a cement shoe with no give at all. I should have returned them. A waste of a lot of money. They do look nice.

I love these shoes. I have a hard time wearing heels, but I tolerated these as well as any I\'ve ever worn when I took them out for a fancy evening. The gray suede is gorgeous!

These suede pumps are very classy...needed to order them wide for bunions. They fit perfectly, wide toe box but not too wide over the span of the foot otherwise. They are as comfortable as any heel could be. This pair is light gray rather than dark gray as described but that is the only discrepancy. I am very pleased with this purchase. Success at last.

My feet are a true 8 with painful bunions, so I mistakenly ordered 8.5W in a number of shoes to give some semblance of comfort. My length is still an 8 for most styles, but the W (C/D) really helps in most cases. I ordered V. Desiree in dark grey and in brown suede, 8.5W. Oddly, the grey fit and the brown are too long. So, grey runs short and brown is true to size. The Michele style is classic with a stylish heel. It is kind to my bunions by not cutting them at the vamp edge. The inside is barely padded, but not uncomfortable. I will be keeping them.

Love this shoe! Fit is on the money, quality is superb. I was a huge fan of the Evan Picone Coronado style and this shoe has some of the same basic features, choked up top line, nicely shaped heel. Wish they came in more colors and materials.

These shoes are great. I wore them for about 6 hours one night, having gone to a dinner, a cocktail/reception, and then out to a local lounge, and they didn't start hurting until about the last thirty minutes of the night. I think they hurt mostly because I had been standing all night, but also because the toe is somewhat narrow. Either way, I still love these shoes. They exude a young and chic attitude and go with almost anything!

I have a very wide foot with bunions, and so have a very hard time finding shoes that fit AND look good. Vaneli is typically my go-to brand, and this particular shoe is great. It's not only comfortable, but also fashionable, and goes equally well with dresses/skirts and pants. I love the shoe and recommend it for a hard to fit foot in desperate need of a shoe that doesn't rub, pinch or cause pain.

At last a shoe that's true to size, that is comfortable and stylish. I wear a wide width and the heel on this is narrow enough so that it doesn't slip off (that so often happens in wide shoe). I wish they made it in a black calf as well.

A pretty and elegant shoe. Flatters the foot. I have a narrow heel and medium ball of foot, so I was thrilled to find a pump I didn't walk out of. Pretty comfortable for a dress shoe, although not as soft an insole as I prefer. However, that's why God created gel inserts. I wear size 10N in this shoe. Yes, I would buy it again.

I ordered 4 pairs of shoes in this style as I needed them for a particular date and wanted to make sure that one of them fit. They are beautiful and classy looking and the heel is great. A very clean and elegant shape. I normally wear an 8M, but they felt too tight so I settled for the 8W. Probably could have stayed with the M as they have stretched a little and one shoe gapes very slightly.

This is a stylish and classic pump. I purchased this shoe for a May wedding. I felt this Suede pump would be perfect no matter what time of year. Once I received the shoe - it confirmed the fact that it was suitable for any occasion. Both the look and comfort of the shoe was just right!

This shoe is lovely -- fits well, perfectly styled. It is an office to evening shoe. I hope Vaneli keeps the style and expands the leather options. I would buy additional pairs.

Cute shoes but gave me blisters on the top of my toes after moderate walking. Had to put bandaids on most of my toes to get home.

Great looking shoe! I always know that Vaneli shoes in my size will fit perfectly and be comfortable from the very first wearing. The heel height is high enough to be stylish and yet still comfortable. The shape of the heel makes it a very stable shoe to wear.
