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 shoes are beautiful, and astonishingly comfortable. Sadly, the color (Medium Natural) was way lighter and more yellow than the photograph indicates and, therefore, not what I'm looking for. I'm hugely disappointed to be sending them back, because otherwise these shoes are perfect.

Bought these in the black reptile and I LOVE them! So comfortable and stylish. Great lower heel, but still sexy.

I go way back with this shoe, back so far I have the "Red" ones from Circa Joan & David Callalily! Yes, my Facebook page at Christmas lit up asking where to get them! Please bring them back because I only use them on special occasions! I also own the Black which is another go to shoe for me at work or for the new shorter style pants they really look very cute with all the wonderful detail. These shoes are an extremely comfortable and love the 2" heel. I manage a Medical Practice so I am on my feet all day long. At 5'11" they are a perfect solid heel. To own these shoes for several years and still look like perfection is a testimonial in itself! Highly Recommend! Zappos Red leather (I can send a picture) and consider Black Suede I think that would be awesome! Thank you!

I bought the medium natural leather in size 9M. Everything about them is great - they were comfortable the first time out of the box and for the rest of the day, feel supportive, look great and I got compliments. They are a classy basic.

I first purchased these shoes in Red that goes back to maybe a year or two ago and I pulled them out for Christmas 2013 and I am still getting compliments on them. Zappos really needs to bring them back in Red, I have a line up of friends looking for them. My next purchase was this black pair. I would have to measure but these Kitten Heels say they are at 2 but they may be a little higher compared to others I own. They are stunning, perfect sturdy heel and I receive lots of compliments every time I wear them. They are very comfortable and will maintain their shape and sheen for years to come.

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.
