I bought these shoes to wear as a bridesmaid in a wedding. The shimmery gold color is neutral but beautiful. I was the only bridesmaid who didn't have to take off my shoes by the end of the night because my feet hurt. They were comfortable even through hours of dancing! The one drawback is not a flaw in the shoe, but just something I didn't think of before purchasing them. We took some outdoor pictures of the bridal party, and my heels sunk into the dirt. Since the shoes are a satin material, the soil absorbed into my heels and changed the color to dark brown. Just something to consider if you'll be wearing them outside.

I purchased the fushcia shoes. The color is beautiful and the heel height is dressy, but not too high. Classic styling. However, the shoe is itself is very, very hard, especially in the area across the top of the toes/ball of the foot. Just wearing that home for 10 minutes produce red marks. If you have lots of time to break these in, and your feet are happy in plastic shoes, these give you the style more expensive shoes at a lower price. I'm returning my pair since II need to wear them this weekend.

I have purchased these shoes for a summer wedding. The shoes are absolutely beautiful and fit perfect, but I must say that after reading the reviews I did order a 1/2 size larger and they fit perfect. They seem very comfortable and I am looking forward to wearing them all day!

They run small. I ordered an 8.5 in this style. I am a true 8 and have other Nina's that are 8s.

Beautiful shoe! I will be using them for my wedding in September. I had to exchange this shoe a few times because I kept finding defects in the shoe like bows not matching or scratches. I'm extremely picky and am glad that Zappos was able to work with me and ship them so promptly. After trying so many other shoes I decided that this was the one. It's 3 in and cushioned very well so that I can barely feel the height. I wanted the "elektra" shoe at first but after walking in it a few times I could definitely feel the incline and knew it would be too much for me to handle on my wedding day. Forbes is a classy and comfy shoe, and I can't wait to wear them for the big day. This shoe is true to size and the grape color is much more vibrant and pretty than it appears in pictures.

Cute shoe! A very vibrant blue and a perfect height for a dress heel. Was nervous about ordering a shoe with an enclosed back (usually wear a 6 or 7) and bought the 6.5 and they fit nicely toe to heel. The sides seem to rub the inside of my arch, but overall one of the least painful pair of dress heels I have worn over the years. Happy with the purchase.

The color is slightly lighter in person, which was exactly what I was hoping for in order to coordinate with a special occasion dress. In terms of fit, I have a wide foot and this shoe is a touch snug. But not uncomfortably so...as other reviewers have noted, the shoe is very stiff and almost difficult to put on. However, once it is on, the stiffness actually makes it more comfortable. I'm confident that a little breaking in will make this a great shoe in my wardrobe.

I'm wearing these shoes at my wedding in August and I couldn't be happier with them. I first saw the Nina Electra, but I was concerned about the height of the heel. I kind of felt like I was settling when I bought these shoes, but when I put them on, I was just thrilled. They fit perfectly, the color is awesome, and they are so comfortable. I wear them around the house all the time, that is how much I love them.

I bought these shoes for my upcoming wedding, having never ordered from Zappos before and I think this is one of the best decisions I've ever made. These shoes come with their own little felt shoe bag, which is amazing. For a 3" heel, they are super comfy in addition to being stylish. My parents, sister, and husband-to-be love them. The apple green is a bit darker than the online pictures, but it is exactly the green I was looking for. My left foot is a bit smaller, so I'll have to add in a heel insert to prevent blistering, but that is very specific to my feet. Very much looking forward to wearing these on my wedding day!

I have been looking for gray/pewter shoes for a few months. These are great and super cute on. I typically wear a 7½ but have been going to down to a 7 in pumps lately. These were no exception; the 7 fit perfectly. I have not worn them yet but they seem very comfortable.

Loved these! Had a heck of a time finding lime green heels that weren't street-walker shoes. I was looking for kicks to fit in with the color scheme of my wedding, and these were perfect! Comfortable, cute. I got a lot of compliments and plan to wear them again!

I ordered these to try on for my wedding shoes and I love them! I thought they would be uncomfortable because the heel is higher, but they are actually more comfortable than the lower heels I ordered. They fit me true to size and don't slip. The only reason I'll be returning my fun, bright yellow ones is if the blue ones come available!

Love these in red! After an overnight stretching they fit perfectly (I always have to do this for my C width feet). And these are beautiful and walkable comfortable (for heels)! The red satin is a deeper elegant red that what I saw online, I much prefer them in person. Love them! Holiday shoes and beyond.

Brands I'd also recommend: other nina's

This shoe is so elegant. My bridesmaids are wearing them for my upcoming wedding. They match Davids Bridal color "truffle" really well! They are slippery though, and need grips on the bottom.
