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.

I had great hopes for this shoe--bought my normal size (9.5) and it fit like a dream and the foot bed padding was exceptional. After a few wearings, however, the leather seemed to stretch quite a bit, and my heel started coming out when I walked. I then ordered the 9, but it feels a tad short. Perhaps someone with a slightly wider foot might like this shoe better than I did!

I bought the natural/brown patent pair. They are my most reliable, go-to shoes for work - can go with almost any item, any color, are neither too low nor too high, and are comfortable! I have received tons of compliments on them over the last few months, which surprised me as I initially thought they might be too conservative. I wear a 7B normally; usually this brand runs a little narrow and slightly large for me, but with this pair the width was just right. The size was just a tad large and I was experiencing some heel slippage, but some heel slip inserts solved that problem exactly. I'm still wearing these halfway into pregnancy with twins because they're comfortable and not too high, which is a nice alternative to flats during pregnancy.

I was looking for a quiet shoe so that people would not hear me walking down the hall a half a mile away. This shoe is very quiet and is perfect for someone working in hospital administration. It's also comfortable and beautiful! I might have to get myself another one in a different color!

If you are thinking about buying these shoes, don't delay another second! They are absolutely beautiful and very, very well made. Although they look very elegant in the picture, they are even more spectacular in reality! Love, love, love them!

Beautiful shoe, low heel height, just what I was looking for since I bought this for a wedding and will be on my feet all day. I've worn them around the house and I think they will be comfortable and great looking at the same time. Shipping was incredibly fast and Zappos is always great about returns. Thanks

I bought this and the natural at the same time. The black pair was noticeably tighter; I think the natural pair had been a return so had been worn before. I wear an 8.5M and the shoe seems true to size. The pointed-tow style does mean that your toes are a little cramped, but not uncomfortably so. The arch is well supported. The padding in the footbed is excellent and makes the shoe comfortable. The construction is sturdy and the heel gives a secure stride. Perfect heel height for stylish professionalism. Very satisfied.

These shoes are even better when you are wearing them! I wanted something a little "edgy" and up-to-date. Every time I wear them I get at last 2 or 3 compliments. Bought them in black; they are just really sharp looking - with pants - dresses, whatever! Very comfortable as well!

These are gorgeous and sexy and I'm sure would be comfortable if they didn't run so small. The sole is thickly padded and the heel is just the right height. I think they would be comfortable even without hose since they have the side openings to breathe and the sole is a soft leather-like material.I am almost religiously a size 8.5 and these were very tight. I have to return them and was trying to buy the next size up, but they are unfortunately unavailable. I'm hopeful that they come back in stock soon!

These shoes are very comfortable! They have a good amount of padding and arch support. Unlike some pointy-toes shoes, they are not tight around the toes. They feel true to size (mine are 7s). I am buying them in a second color.

Wildly comfortable and a great shoe for work! Padding on footbed is exceptional, and no rub marks or blisters at the end of the first day wearing them. Feels slightly larger than other size 9.5 shoes that I have, but I know I'll appreciate this room when then weather gets warmer.

These shoes look so much more expensive than they are. They look great with suits and have a very cushy footbed. I bought them in brown and black. The brown is particularly great-looking. I highly recommend them. True to size and width.

This shoes are so great looking! They seem to be very comfortable so far due to the great padding/cushioning in the sole. I feel that they run a bit big as I usually wear a 9.5 (and ordered that size) and these are a little big. Probably could have worn a 9. I believe another reviewer stated that the buckle on the side is adjustable, but it is only there for decoration and is non-functioning. I like these so much I may order a pair in red!

These have got to be about the most comfortable heels I've ever owned. I wore them for three days straight when I got them and it was like walking on clouds, and no blisters! I have a lot of back problems, so choosing a comfortable shoe is really important to me, and finding comfortable heels with decent height can be a challenge. I've owned Cole Haans and other more expensive shoes, but surprisingly this pair tops them all in terms of comfort. From the picture, I was afraid the shoes would be too shiny / look cheap, but that is not the case at all. They are stylish and comfortable. I'm so happy with my purchase.

I returned my pumps. Loved the low heel! But the toes pinched more than my other Circa heels. And the patent leather was a bit too strong for me. Cute buckle. Re. color: the black is cute, the brown odd and calico-like, and the taupe amazing!

Shoe runs a little on the big side and the material feels like it's going to hurt your feet if you wear it. It's a beautiful shoe though.

Gorgeous shoe. Love the look and it’s really comfortable, but does need a break-in period (for me). The cushioned insole is a nice feature. I debated between an 8.5 and 9 (I’m between sizes), and ended up going with the 9. So far so good although I did have a tiny bit of heel slippage by the end of the day. My only complaint is with the covered heel – I’ve only worn the shoes three times and already noticed a nick on one heel. Having white plastic show through ruins the otherwise elegant look of the shoe. (It would make a lot of sense if shoe companies would use colored plastic to match the shoe color so the inevitable nicks would be less noticeable.) But maybe I’m just hard on shoes and this isn’t an issue for others. I like this style enough to purchase other colors if it weren’t for this, however, I’m going back to heels that aren’t covered.

Not quite what I was looking for. The fit of the heel was a bit off, and the sides sagged slightly. The interior cushion is comfortable on the one hand, but gives a squishy, not a confident stride. Returned.
