Just note that the size 11 heel is really 3 1/4" high, not the 2.5 stated for a smaller size. Too high for what I wanted. Also the color is a little mushroomy and shiny.

These shoes kept slipping at the heel although they felt like the right size. I ordered a 7 1/2 and I think if I had ordered 1/2 size smaller they would squeeze my toes. I will be returning these.

My first Veneli's. Super comfortable and true to size. Rounded toe is flattering and professional. Totally bypassed the often painful and annoying patent leather break-in phase as these were a great fit right out of the box.

Sabbia Smack patent is champagne color, which has grown on me after seeing the same color in some Spring catalogues. Originally wanted a more nude color. Shoe has a good medium height and is comfortable without pinching my bunions. The Undine has very little padding, however, so you may want to add an insert.

This is a beautiful shoe (red) - elegant, classic, and well made. I wear a size 10B 95% of the time and the size 10 fit well. They feel a little loose in the heel, but not sure I need a heel pad yet. Great heel height. These will be a wardrobe staple.

These shoes are amazing! I can walk around work/town in these heels all day. I bought the red ones and have received so many compliments. I highly recommend these shoes and plan on buying another pair in another color.

I love these shoes! After reading all the great reviews, I ordered a pair of these in Black Patent leather along with several other brands to try- these were the best fit, the most comfortable, and gorgeous as they allow a little toe cleavage as they call it. Just beautifully crafted ! Fabulous! Look no further! I ordered two more pair in red and taupe! Love them all!

I bought these in the red patent and I just love them! They are so comfortable, I could walk in them for hours. Definitely a well-made I shoe! I did have to exchange them for a half size smaller than what I usually wear(6.5), but this could be because I ordered a wide-width.

I haven't wore the shoes yet, as I bought them to match a dress I am wearing to a wedding in March. I probably ordered 3 pairs of shoes before purchasing these. Trying to match my dress was very difficult, I even searched locally before ordering online. I wear a 5 1/2 and the shoes fit me perfectly. They do seem a little stiff so I probably should wear them around the house a time or two before wearing them for an extended time. The color is really pretty. It does have a touch of gold in it, but I believe if you wore beige, it would pick it up and wouldn't have that gold undertone. I think I will be able to wear them with several outfits. It's a sassy little shoe.

I am wearing the shoes as I type this review! I have always looked away from heels because of my wide feet's inability to fit into anything. I never knew that any company made shoes that were wide for cute heels. My feet are tiny, except they are wide, and wearing these heels just tells everyone how small my feet are and they fit so comfortably. The sole of these shoe have soft suede leather that feels fantastic. I am a little concerned about the edge of the heel area as I can feel a slight roughness and hope that blisters will not form. Great color, fitting and style! They are not too high, either. They may be slightly bigger than marked, but wearing heels sometimes makes my feet swell and expand towards the end of the day so this slight room is a keeper!

I have these shoes in Sabbia Smack patent. They are a great neutral, and I love them with both black and navy. The shoes are the most comfortable that I have ever worn. They are well made, well padded, and very stable. Although they are a lower heel (2¾"), they are fine for both day and evening events, especially in this color. The size was totally true. I just ordered these shoes in the Black Nappa and plan to return a pair of Cole Haan mid heels if they are as comfortable as the Sabbia ones.

I love these shoes! I have them in two sizes so far (Sabbia Smack Patent, and Black Patent), and I love them both! They are so comfortable, while being classic and beautiful at the same time. It's only a matter of time before I buy them in the other two colors!

I love these shoes. Beautiful, well made, classic shoes that are comfortable and stable, but still delicate. I wore these to a holiday party where I walked around for hours, and they were great. We then went dancing, and I got super-drunk, but stayed up on the heels the whole time. Great shoes.

I love these shoes. I was looking for a classic comfortable pump, tried about a dozen, and these were the clear winners! I have a sometimes narrow foot and these are a great fit. Ive recently realized shoes that are pointy or even kinda pointy, squish my third toes. So Ive been on a quest for round toes classics. For me this shoe is so it. Love the leather sole and the feminine cut and the slim heel and the good comfort and it does not press that 3rd toe. I bought the black then wanted another pair cuz its so hard for me to find heels that are comfortable and sexy. So I ordered the sabbia smack color for a neutral. I was disappointed in the color when it arrived, too tapuey gold . I was about to send it back but i did a zappos search for a similar style golden/neutral shoe and didnt see anything, plus I knew i loved the way this fit so far around my house. I tried them on again and realized the color is a perfect neutral for my skin tone without being too white or light colored. Be sure and try them on with your bare legs and a skirt to see if they go with your skin tone. I'm medium white. I'm so psyched to have this 2 classics in my closet and know they are comfortable. I feel like i have endless choices in pretty feminine sexy sophisticated outfits because of these new shoes. oh and the Vigottis with similar heels, really fit good too but get a half size bigger in those.

These shoes are beautiful. The nude look goes with everything, very sophisticated. The fit is true to size and the heel is a comfortable height and I don't normally wear heels. I did put a pad in the toe bed to keep my toes from scrunching in the end.

The shoes are very elegant and comfortable. The little bit of shimmer (almost gold) in the color dress them up, They can go from daytime to night easily. I love the height of the heel comfortable but still gives a high look.

This was a panic purchase. I had a wedding to attend, had my dress and no shoes. I have a challenging foot size, so basically, I thought I was settling. I was wrong. This is an amazing shoe! It's beautiful, perfect simplicity and it fit beautifully. I don't normally wear pumps and heels, so I was expecting the shoe to hurt. It was comfortable for most of the evening, only started to pinch after about 5 hours of wear, so, I consider it a successful purchase. I usually purchase an E or EE, this time I bought a D. I'm very glad I purchased the shoes.

I have very small feet (wear size 4-4.5) and have bunions. I searched for a classic pair of pumps for years. Those are the best pumps I could possibly find! They are so comfy and look great, too! I now own 4 pairs of them: black suede, black patent, grey suede and sabbia patent. I wanted the purple suede too but they were sold out. Please make more of these pumps!!!

Oh my! How lovely to find in the box a ruby red pair of pumps that are gorgeous and comfortable! The heel height is just right, and creates a nice line, from calf to toe. I felt like skipping on the yellow brick road! So glad I waited to look for a purse as it was a different red than what I had in mind. Nevertheless, a timeless, classic shoe, just in time for the holidays and my new red dress on the way! Once again, Zappos, you shine, I shine and that makes for a might fine time! Thank you!!!

Love he look, but it didn't fit, the 9 was a bit too long (heel didn't slip out it just came out). I returned it then ordered the 8.5 and it just killed my toes. It cut in right at the base of my toes. Admittedly the 9 wasn't the most comfortable in the toe box area but I didn't expect such a difference in just half a size. Well all of you who can fit in this shoe are lucky, I am jealous it didn't fit. My foot type is wide, wide toe box, flat foot, (I refer to them as scandanavian/whelsh feet).

This is a beautiful shoe, and it runs true to size. I got it in the purple and it's gorgeous! I love the heel height. I don't do well in really high heels and often feel unstable, but not in these pumps. Highly recommend.

Best pump ever! So comfortable, nice heel height, and enough room in the toe box. And cute! The best part of these shoes is the pad under the ball of the foot - it has a non-slippery surface so you can wear your slippery nylons, but your feet still stay in the shoe nicely and don't slip forward. I bought these in the neutral (gold) color and the red, and now I'm getting my third pair in the black patent.
