I have these in the black patent, and they are by far the most comfortable pair of pumps I own. They are sleek and beautiful, and they pair well with either dresses/skirts or pants. I even bought another pair as a backup for when I wear this out! Thinking of buying another color...

I have always been a big fan of Nine West shoes. When I got these shoes, I was very excited because they were exactly what I was looking for and fit perfectly. However, after about 3 months the seams around my foot started to separate. It's really unfortunate because I loved to wear them and they went with everything.

One of my friends absolutely swears by these shoes and has four pairs. I am not completely thrilled with them- they weren't bad, but it was very hard to walk on carpeting due to a lack of traction on the sole and the heel felt a bit unstable.

Great shoe. This is the second pair I have bought of the same shoe in nude. The sole of both came loose within a week of wearing, which is annoying but not a deal breaker. For a heel of this height they are very comfortable and I have gotten tons if compliments.

These are some of the most comfortable heels I've ever owned. I have a wide foot and can walk and stand in these for hours. I'm so pleased with them!

The shoes are nice; however, the color in the picture is much more cream toned than the dark taupe they actually are. The soles are very slippery too - the heel is plastic tipped, so is slippery.

Slightly more narrow than the black ones. I did order wides in both color but the nude pumps just didn't fit the same. So I am keeping the black ones and will look for a different style nude pump. The nude pump makes your foot look bigger.

These shoes would be perfect except that after a while, they crack where they flex, at the top sides. I know four people with this show and we all have the same cracks in the same place.

Perfect black patent pump for work. Too bad they didn't fit. My foot runs on the wide side. I usually wear a 7, but have had to buy a 7.5 in some brands. Bought a 7M - will exchange for a 7.5W.

These are great shoes for work and are comfortable enough to get through a whole day at the office. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable they are. As for sizing, I wear 6 or 6.5 and ordered the 6.5 which turned out to be perfect. So if you're between sizes then definitely go up to the larger. I loved them so much that I came back and ordered them in black.

These heels are uncomfortable and hurt my feet. After four times wearing them, one of the heel broke off. The quality is questionable.

These were beautiful shoes but I felt like one of Cinderella's ugly stepsisters trying to squeeze my foot into them. I can usually wear a 6.5 in dress shoes but this did not work for me at the regular width. It's too bad because they looked like beautiful shoes, managing to look both professional and fashionable at the same time. The heel seemed a little higher than I was expecting but from the little bit that I was able to attempt the shoes, it was manageable. My comfort score on here is hard to rate since I couldn't fit in them in the first place. I'll try a wide for the first time ever if they come back in stock but if your feet are on the edge, you may want to try wide first.

These are some of the only heels I can find in size 12 with a large enough toe box to fit my long toes. They are cute in the patent. Not much padding for the ball of my foot, but I need something that fits, so I'm keeping them.

These shoes are just as beautiful as Kate Spade, but more affordable, and to me, more comfortable. I would have kept them if the heel were not so high! They are more like 3½" high. Sadly, my knees and balls of my feet cannot handle them.

Poor quality- these shoes are literally coming apart at the seams with only moderate wear. Truly disappointed because (a) I foolishly paid full price at zappos for a crummy product; (b) they are pretty cute with a rounded toe that isn't "too" round; and (c) they were actually pretty comfortable for regular office based walking. The stitching on the interior side of the shoe (You can see it in the above pictures) is simply coming apart. I would avoid these shoes completely and its not a bargain its just cheap if it falls to pieces in the first few months of moderate wear!

Brands I'd also recommend: Corso Como; Ivanka Trump; Cole Haan.

I got these shoes in nude a couple of years ago, and after breaking them in they became one of my favorite/go-to pairs of heels. 2+ years later I still have my original pair and I ordered a 2nd pair in black. The first pair held up very well: I've worn them regularly both for work and for going out because they are comfortable and easy to walk in. 2 things to be aware of: 1: The shoes do stretch (1/4 size or more). so if you're in between sizes, I'd suggest rounding down. When they're new, you want a fit that's snug: not super tight but if they're a little loose consider trying 1/2 size smaller. 2: Break them in before you wear them out for real. I didn't do this with my first pair (mistake). This time I just wore them around for about a couple of hours of walking/standing (short errands, around the apartment, etc.) to break them in, and now they're good to go.

After reading all of the reviews on here, I really wanted to like these shoes. Unfortunately, the quality of the shoes was not great and the shoes would squeak every time I walked.

I was super excited to receive these shoes but was quickly disappointed! There was a rip where the patent meets the inside of the shoe. Such bad quality for the money! Have to return them because I can't imagine what they'd look like in a couple of months. These should be sold at Payless Shoes for $16.99!

These are the most comfortable heels I have ever worn. I wore the last pair I had until they literally fell apart. I am on my feet for hours and these are great. I'm buying all the colors. I also love the round toe, it fits so much better than pointed.

I've only had these shoes for 3.5 months. They've been worn 1-2 times each week since I purchased them. SO COMFORTABLE and easy to wear. Unfortunately, my left heel broke off while at work and I walked around in socks for half of the day! I will be ordering another pair because they're so darn comfortable, and I'm hoping this was a fluke! I'm not sure if they can be returned since they've been worn several times now.

This is my go-to work shoe. I do have to wear an 8 1/2 in these when I normally wear an 8. I just purchased my third pair after having worn the other two out. They are reasonably comfortable for an 8-5 desk job. I would definitely recommend them to others, and actually two women from my office have the same pair and like them as well.

Comfortable pumps. I usually wear 8.5-9 and tend to have wider feet. I ordered a 9 W and they fit perfectly.

This is a beautiful shoe. My only minor complaint, not even a complaint is that it is a tiny bit too big but I've put an insert in to help with that. I usually take a size 12 in Nine West but in this shoe I could probably do an 11 for a snugger fit.

I love this style so much I have it in the beige patent and black leather. This is a very cute pump that works for both office and dressy occasions. I found it to be very comfortable even for someone with a wider foot. My toes didn't feel cramped and the back of the heel didn't rub. One note is that it has a rounded toe but a short vamp -- there is a little bit of toe cleavage.
