I have these shoes in black, red, neutral, butter and brown. They are the most comfortable pumps I have ever owned. I live in Manhattan and my pumps must be walkable, these definitely are!

I really wanted to like these shoes. So cute, just the right (low) heel. Looked fabulous coming out of the box -- made my feet scream when I put them on. Very stiff overall and very tight through the toe box. Going up a half size was not an option length-wise. And I'm a M and they were gapping already on the sides (where the peek-a-boo is) so increasing width is not an option. I do not have overly wide toes nor bunions; these are just cut very slim in my opinion.

These are very attractive and comfortable shoes. I wore them to our Christmas party where I was standing for hours. They were perfect. They have a very cushioned insole.

Wonderful shoe, very comfortable and dressy. Great quality. The only problem is that the buckle gets stuck in your pants sometimes and it's a bit painful.

The photo is better than the product. This shoe has all the makings of a great everyday work shoe: walkable heel height, cushioned ball of the foot, nice style. But in person this shoe looks cheap, feels narrow in the toe box and wide at the heel and generally failed for me.

These are lovely shoes. They just ran half a size too small for me. The buckle is not adjustable, it is decoration. I love the look, I cannot wait for the larger size!

These shoes felt comfortable right out of the box, and all day the first time I wore them. I'm on my feet a lot at work, and I had practically given up on finding comfortable heels that were also stylish. I got these in black and will be getting the brown ones soon.

Very classy, very sexy shoes from the pointy toe to the kitten heel to the peek-a-boo cut-out on the sides to the buckle accent...these shoes really fit the "work wardrobe" bill. Super comfy with a generously padded foot bed, they display just the right amount of toe cleavage (which I like), and the more I wear them, the more custom-fitted they feel. Up and down, walking to my car across the parking lot, sometimes even running to the file room, and they remain without a doubt the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. And I have a bunion on my right foot, so that's saying a lot. Wish they came in even more colors. Highly recommend.

These kitten-heeled pumps are the most comfortable dress shoes I've ever worn. the first time I wore them I took a leap of faith in the reviews of other purchasers and walked for 5 hours in NYC. No pain or discomfort at all! They fit true to size and are as cushy to walk in as promised. The classic style makes them work with most outfits and I know I'll get lots of wear out of them.

Great shoe! I usually buy much more expensive shoes because of how hard I am on shoes and my need for a supportive, comfortable (but pretty) shoe. I wear a size 11 and my feet have gotten wider as I've gotten older, so finding stylish shoes that I can be on my feet all day in is difficult - these shoes fit the bill! Love the pointy toe, and there is plenty of room in the toe box, pretty leather, very comfortable heel height to be running around the hospital for many hours every day. Highly recommend.

These are very comfortable, stylish and sexy shoes. They have a kitten heel that makes it much easier on the feet. However, I had to return my normal size and get a half size larger because it did pinch in the toe.

Stylish comfortable shoe! Love the cushioned insole. I bought these for work, and am very pleased. I normally wear a 5.5, but returned them for a 5 because they were a little big on the heel.

Very happy with this shoe. Stylish, with a low heel that still looks fashionable. Comfortable shoe that feels true to size; a bit of padding inside. I get lots of compliments when I wear these shoes.

I like this shoe because I have a narrow foot and they fit perfectly. They are one of the most comfortable shoes I have owned. I bought them in two colors. Well worth the money. I have also received many compliments on the style of the shoe.

Very pretty shoe. But did not fit me well. It was too long. I did not order a size down because the toe is narrow so I think a smaller size would be uncomfortable. I have a narrow foot and the medium width seemed okay. Better luck next time.

Let me begin by saying that I hate wearing heels. Hate. I am the kind of girl who would live in flip-flops if I could. I bought these after trying several other pairs, and find them to be the most comfortable. My feet don't end up sore and blistered after wearing them, even with bunions. I am thrilled to have found these!

These are really cute in person, especially the Ivory. You can't quite tell from the picture, but the reptile colors are patent leather, so there is less give. I wish they came in wides.

Best pair of heels I have EVER worn. I literally can wear these 12 - 16 hours and not even think twice about it. The brown is patterned, which makes it look very high end, and the hardware is also quite lovely. I literally can't think of a single negative thing to say about this shoe, except I wish I had purchased it in every color!

You know, the shoes are beautiful and classy. The problem is that even though the footbed is padded well, they are very uncomfortable near the front point of the foot. They're so, so pointy. I'm going to keep them and not walk in them much - just save them for dress. I love the looks. I would definitely NOT buy smaller. If the heel slips off, use the heel pads to help. Because if it's smaller, the toebox issue will likely be even worse.

I am not normally a wearer of pointy shoes or skinny heels, therefore it is pertinent that I find these shoes comfortable. I wore them to a gala event, stood in them for several hours, danced in them, and felt no adverse effects. Fantastic shoes. They are not very high, but they give the illusion of a higher heel, and they are high enough to flatter the leg and I am only 5'4". Another virtue is that their heel stays put and does not slip off with every step. I normally wear a 7.5 and this shoe was true to size.

These are beautiful shoes. Size runs true and the fit is good. They do need a little breaking in so don't plan on spending the entire day running around the first day you wear them. Otherwise, simply gorgeous shoes.

Great shoe with sytle. Padding on the inside makes it much more comfortable than other heels I've worn. I'm a true 9M and these are a little snug but I'm sure they will stretch after a couple of times wearing and then fit perfectly.

Beautiful, comfortable. The only issue is it appears that over time the toe will crease from walking.

Nice style and quality as usual for Joan & David shoewear. Great heel size for those of us who can't or don't prefer to wear those very high heels. Good support and comfort padding. Will wear to a summer wedding.

My foot is 'slightly' wide and I usually have to stretch most medium width shoes. I could not be more pleased - right out of the box 'all day' wear. Just enough give.

These shoes are great and comfortable to walk in all day. One shoe was a tad loose in the heel, but added a heel cushion and it worked perfect!
