These are my favorite pair of shoes because they go with anything! I have looked everywhere for them and I found them only at Zappos! I love this online store!

I bought these shoes for my daughter to wear at her wedding rehearsal dinner. Although she did not wear them (she wore a pair of red Type Z) she has worn these to work and loves them! She said they fit perfectly and are really, really comfortable. Looks like Type Z shoes rock! I guess I will be ordering more of them.

These shoes fit accurately. The color is beautiful, and they the mediums are definitely medium, if not a little wide.

The shoe is really lovely. The shoe is very light. But it runs large. I wear an 8 1/2 and when I wore it, it looked like a size 9.

For such a practical shoe, I cannot believe all the compliments I get on it! It is just perfect with so many different outfits, too. The only thing about this shoe is that it runs slightly large and slips off - I had to put in some insoles which fixed the problem.

I first got the shoe and loved it! The heel isn't covered, it's actually hard plastic which is great; no fabric ripping up from the bottom after walking around the city here! It was a little too large (I got the 11.5) so I'm exchanging it for an 11. It was incredibly stable and comfy!

This shoe is soo cute! The hidden platform makes it high but way comfortable, and the sexiness overall is fantastic! I have a super high instep, but this shoe worked for my foot completely. I ordered an 8.5 which was too big, heel slipped out a lot, and then I ordered an 8 which was way too small. Maybe mismarked? Well, I am trying it again and ordered another set of both, an 8.5 and an 8, hope to have better luck.

Very small. It was a bad idea to not listen to the reviews. I'm scared to get a half size bigger in fear of them being such a hassle. I held them twice and the glitter is already coming off. Very frustrating.

Super cute! I am normally an 11 or 12 and based on reviews I ordered the 11.5 and 12. I kept the 12, though they were still a bit snug. With a wedding only two days away, I didn't have much choice but to grin and bear it. Order up!

I always wear a size 10 and have never been smaller, never been bigger. I ordered a size 10 and I could barely squeeze my foot into the shoe. Seriously, it was like Chinese foot binding. They were way too small. I love the look of the shoes and they are not too tall so I went ahead and ordered a size 11. I definitely do not want to wear a size 11, but the shoes are really cute.

First of all, you can't beat the shipping for the site. It's amazing! As for these gorgeously classic pumps...love! They are so comfortable and super easy to walk in. The only thing I would say when ordering these it to order a half size up from what you normally wear. If you do that, the fit is perfect!

These are really cute shoes, but they do run very small. I always wear a 7½, but these shoes felt much more like a 6½. I could not even get my feet in the shoes. The top of the right shoe also had a nick in the faux suede. That is a bummer. They are going back for a larger size and hopefully an undamaged pair.

I really like how these heels look and the nude color. The sizing is is off, I order half a size bigger and they were to big. My normal size fits but it is tight in the toe area. I guess I will try the wide in my normal size.

Perfect shoe for small feet. Size 5 was true to fit. It took me a while to get used to the platform, but they are great with skirts and suits.

I ordered these shoes in various size and color combinations trying to get the perfect fit. I thought I found them, so I wore a pair out on a Friday night and soon learned that I got it wrong. First, I don't think these are actually a half size smaller like everyone else here does. I think that you'll get a perfect fit if you order them in your regular size but go for a wide-width. I ordered a half size up, following everyone's advice, and they are actually a half size too big and I have a gap in the back on both shoes. Although these are available in wide widths, I did not find them to be wide enough. I actually got blisters on the widest part of both of my feet and found that incredibly distressing. I will still wear these shoes since I can't return them, but I will know to not wear them anywhere I actually need to walk.

Love these shoes but dang are they tight. Almost unwearable if I didn't wear a size 11 and need to go with what I can get sometimes!

They are heels but thanks to the little platform hidden in the shoe, walking in them is much easier. These red heels are perfect to fancy up pretty much anything. A little narrow but I can manage.

I was disappointed that the width was not as comfortable as I hoped. My toes still felt sore after a short while of using the shoes.

A nice looking shoe that looks well made but unfortunately, even though I ordered the wide width, I couldn't even get my feet in them. Oh well. Back they went.

The red is a very nice deep red, exactly the color I was looking for, and it seems comfortable, but the left shoe had a small protrusion at the very point of the toe, which I could deal with because the shoe fit and the abnormality wasn't that noticeable, but the right shoe was about a half size larger and it looked like it was a "wide" even though the bottom of each shoe said 5 1/2M. Very bizarre. They're fantastic looking shoes so I'm going to return this pair and order another and hopefully those don't have the same defects. This is where the Zappos free return policy comes in handy. Also, as others were saying, the shoe runs a little small. I normally wear a 5M and I ordered a 5 1/2M and it fit okay.

Nice shoes for the price! A little tight even for a wide, but you just gotta break them in! Wish the heel was just a smidge taller!

I always enjoy purchasing products from Zappos because of the tremendous customer service. When I received these shoes just two days after I placed the order, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice they were! The shoes looked just as they did in the pictures and I was glad for that.My favorite part about Zappos is their return policy so even if I am hesitant about ordering them online I know I can return them if they aren\'t exactly what I wanted. Luckily I didn\'t have to do it with these great shoes! This is my first pair from Type Z and I am now a big fan! Great value and very distinctive look. Very satisfied customer!

Beautiful shoe! Generally, not a high heel person but wanted a nude pair for an upcoming wedding. First wearing on the painful side but feels more comfy the more I wear. Note: I had a small issue with sizing. My shoe size is 8 and the Darla 8 felt too small. I then tried on the 8.5 and they were obviously too big. Turns out I needed to break in the 8 and now they fit fine. In any case, I would recommend you try a 1/2 size up just to be sure. Overall, these shoes are versatile and not necessarily just for special occasions. Finally, I would like to thank the Zappos team for helping me past the snafu regarding the ordering of these shoes. The customer service is amazing!

Overall, I think for the price, this is a great pair of shoe to have. (I did notice a little smell to them but no big deal). I have to say that I have narrow to medium feet and just to be safe I did order the wide width just in case, and it fit perfectly. I would recommend you guys ordering at least a half a size larger or a wide width for comfort. I think this is going to be one of those pairs of shoes that I would wear all the time.

Love this shoe. Saw that most people said they were a bit big so I ordered 0.5 bigger and regret it. Need to return and get my normal size. Beautiful shoe. Good shape around the toe. Haven't worn around yet though so not sure about comfort.
