Really cute shoes! I ordered them in a 10 (my normal shoe size) I didn't think they would fit because I usually go up a size in heels but they fit perfectly! I ordered the multi-glitter ones and the glitter was more silver with some color then color glitter; but I still love them and plan on adding more glitter myself!

I liked the shoes a lot. They are a great red color and wonderful style. I did not keep these because they fit a bit small for me. I got the 10W and might have went for a 10½W, but the bottom of the shoe was very hard. The heel fit fine and all, but when walking, it was just too hard. So, back they went. I am trying another brand. I love Zappos!

I just got these shoes today and ordered them because of the large amount of reviews (and a good price!). However, my first mistake was ordering a size up like many suggested... I am usually a 5.5 and got a 6 and they're too big. Also, I have a narrow foot and the arch is terrible. It leaves a large gap between my arch and the outside of the shoe and it looks terrible and would look worse with stockings. If I got a smaller size this would still be an issue... I can tell it is how the shoe is made. They so seem very comfortable and I love the black patent leather, however I will be looking for another pair.

I am a true 8.5M and these felt a little snug across the instep, but overall the fit was great with good support and I felt like I would be able to last all day in them, however, I am returning them after trying them on because they were not genuine leather but a faux suede material that I cannot tolerate. How do you charge for a shoe that is not real leather? And not specify it in the description? I don't mind man-made sole or foot bed lining but the upper should be leather to breathe and eventually be more comfortable on your than a synthetic could ever be. If you don't mind paying leather prices for a synthetic upper, then this shoe's fit and style is worth it.

These shoes are great! They run true to size, feel fine right out of the box, and look dead sexy. They're not what I would call "comfort" shoes exactly, but I can wear them for 9 hours at work.

Very pretty shoes, and actually more comfortable than I expected! I wore these around Vegas for the night, and despite having a previous blister from the boots I wore through the airport the day before, I was able to wear them around most of the night.

I love these! I have them in 4 colors. I rarely wear heels because I find them very uncomfortable but these are comfortable enough to wear for several hours without needing to take them off. They have a rubberized sole so they feel very stable when walking. The almond toe box is just gorgeous. The height is just right for me so I don't feel like I'm going to tip over. I want more!

These shoes initially felt comfortable, therefore I wore them and did a two-hour business presentation. Honestly ladies, I couldn't walk afterward, and I knew that my client was witnessing me wince in pain. I have buyer's remorse, regret spending money on these poorly made shoes, and three days after the presentation the balls of my feet are still in pain. I love Zappos, but will never purchase the brand Type Z again. I gave them 1 star for comfort because Zappos doesn't allow no stars.

Bought these shoes for a special event based on all the great reviews. I have a pretty flat/wide foot, however, I never had to buy a wide shoe and tend to do fine in regular size 11 shoes. However, I should have got purchased these shoes earlier than when I did b/c I would have seen that the reg sz 11 was waaaaay to narrow, tight and short! I then would have been able to exchange it for a wider shoe. Because I did none of the above, I got the shoe 2 days before my even and had to spend the night before searching for a new shoe at my local DSW. Thank goodness I found something but the heel was a bit to high but I made through the night. Really wish these shoes fit the 1st time, though. These have to go back unfortunately.

I was completely satisfied with these shoes. I have very wide feet and it's very hard to find heels that are comfortable after more than an hour of wear, but these were. Unfortunately, the seam on the shoe ripped after only the third wear, so I was highly disappointed. They were great while the lasted, but that wasn't for very long.

I love how the toe of this shoe is not too round & not too pointy. My toes didn't feel cramped, either. You can wear this for office, or night out. Overall a great shoe. I'd definitely recommend it. I usually wear a lot of Nine West, so I'm not familiar with this brand, but very glad I ordered these.

These shoes are super cute! I was elated to see that they are offered in extra wide as well, as it's nearly impossible to find stylish heels in wide widths. Sadly, most of the width is in the arch and heel areas; the toe box is still too narrow and my poor little piggies remained crunched up. Also, after only one day of moderate wear, the sole material on both heels had come off and any walking I had done after whatever point that was had started to break down the plastic of the heel itself -- needless to say, for the price I was very disappointed with the quality. These shoes have been returned and I'm hoping to have better luck with whatever pair I pick out next.

Very cute. Not that comfortable, but okay for a dinner out. I wouldn't wear them all day to work, but acceptable for an evening. I wore them with a little black dress and they looked great, especially for the price.

I was looking for a simple black pump for work. When I came across this shoe, I was curious because others had written that it runs a bit small and because I have a very small and narrow foot, I thought this sounded like a winner. The shoes are adorable, but I found that they run big. I had to buy insoles and heel inserts to keep my feet from slipping around in the shoe. The constant slipping also caused blisters. I am hoping that the shoes will be more comfortable after they are worn a bit more. But they are super cute!

I have been searching for years for a black patent leather heel. I have big, wide feet, so I can't buy shoes in stores. I bought these in 10.5 W, which is my true size, and they were a little small. I exchanged for 11 W, and they were perfect! Very nice, stylish shoes. Please re-stock the other colors!

This color is exactly as it's shown. The heel is not suede but the color matches closely with the rest of the shoe. The only problem is the toe area is about 1/2 the length of regular shoes and its very narrow. I wear a 7 and my toes were crunched up in it, plus you could see the top part of my toes. The shoe didn't cover it. I think only someone that wears a size 5 would fit this comfortably. Very disappointing.

So very cute, but so very tight! I usually wear a 7.5W, ordered an 8WW, and could barely squeeze my foot into them. Bummer.

I listened to the other reviews and ordered a half size up. This was a good idea and I put in the no slip heel pads so help. They were slightly wider than I expected but all in all fine. I was in them for entirely too long so al though they were fine for a few hours, after about 8 they were killing me. Great for the price though.

Such a pretty silhouette and looked amazing in the pictures online. But I felt they looked really cheap in person. Surprised me because they are kinda pricey. The heel is a different material and looks like it was stuck on with a glue gun. Use the zoom feature to get a good look. Very roomy and pretty comfortable when standing still but the heel is wide and slipped off and I have average feet. Overall I was disappointed and returned them.

I followed the advice of the other reviewers and ordered 2 pairs, one in 6.5 my regular size and the other in a 7. The 7 seem to fit better. They seemed comfortable for the short time I tried them on in the office on carpeted floor. I am returning them because they appear cheap to me. I can see visible signs of the glue, the heel material did not match the shoe. I was very disappointed.

After reading the reviews I ordered these shoes half size up in a wide but while the length was right the front was still far too narrow! I might try reordering them in a WW because I think they are so cute.

My recommendation would be to go up at least BOTH one half size, AND one width. I do have very wide feet, but usually wear an 8W in most standard style shoes. After reading some of the reviews, I ordered both an 8.5 W, and an 8.5 WW. The 8.5 wide were very uncomfortable and too narrow. The 8.5 WW felt reasonable. The style does have a small built in platform as one review stated, but the heel lift is still more than 3 inches higher than the ball of the foot. If you are thinking you would put comfort gel inserts into the shoes due to the height and to provide some sort of arch support, keep this in mind when ordering sizes. They might warrant going up another half size in length. After wearing them on my feet about a half hour, I'm thinking my toes are getting a bit squashed (might need the 9.0 WW). The material - it's closer to black fuzzy cardboard than any black suede I have worn before - not at all soft and flexible, clearly not great quality. The toe also comes to a little peak on the top, which looks cute but I suspect will become a target of a lot of bumps and scrapes that could turn the material shiny. The heel is not suede, and is shiny black. Considering the height etc., I'm surprised that the comfort is actually ok.

Very pretty shoe. I liked it but it didn't have much padding in the toe box. I don't wear heels very often and I wonder if the shoes would be comfortable after a few hours.
