I wanted red shoes, and these were the closest I could find that did not make me look like a street walker or a really old lady. When I first tried them on, they felt tight. I have a slightly wider than normal size 11 foot. I almost returned them, but then waited a few days to try them on again. They felt better the second try, still a little tight, but comfortable enough that I had faith that they would stretch out. And eight hours later, they still felt good! The red was a little less bright than I was hoping for, but I can see getting a lot of use out of these shoes. My husband said, that they are very attractive! The design is lovely. I feel great wearing them.

I bought this shoe for sturdiness and arch support but my feet hurt from the stiffness and hardness inside. Had to return them. Ouch!

These are petty comfortable on the first day, but on the fourth day in a row I started to get blisters and an ingrown toe nail because the top of the shoe presses down on the top of my big toe. They are cute shoes, but I just cannot wear them for more than two days in a row.

I am a huge Tsubo fan, and these are no exception. They look great and are very comfortable. A professional, conservative heel. As always, Zappos delivered them super quickly.

Overall, these are fabulous shoes. I did find the toe box too short in my usual size (short in the height direction, not the length of toes direction). And when I bought a half size larger than my usual, the shoes were too large, but a little bit of lamb's wool tucked into the toe box solved that problem. Now I wear these pretty much all day, every day. They are very comfortable and the unusual lines are somewhat elegant. Thanks, Tsubo!

Finally, a shoe I can wear at work without worrying that my feet are going to yell at me in the afternoon. These are elegant and comfortable, with the treads perfect for running around and the insole padded and supportive.

These don't feel like heels. I don't wear a lot of heels. These I can wear. The right foot fits perfect...my left foot has a slight bunion. But these red shoes are so cute and comfy I kept them and wear them anyways. I put a little pad on the bunion to alleviate pain. If not for the bunion I'd get them in every color.

I've been looking for the perfect, non-ugly, non-geriatric-looking, 10-hour shoe. I teach, so I'm on my feet all day, and there aren't many shoes with a heel that I can wear and still be comfortable at the end of the day. But finally, my search is over -- this shoe is perfectly stylish with the mini-platform and asymmetrical cut. The rubber soles give traction, and my feel feel like I'm walking on little pillows! I'm in love with these shoes and can't wait to buy more. I bought the taupe-ish color as they read both gray and brown -- perfect. I can't say enough about these shoes. I can finally wear a heel to work!

Bronze color is great--it's actually very close to the color in the picture and, really, I can wear this shoe with black AND brown-based outfits!! I'm so excited. I teach so I think I can actually wear these shoes all day. What a find… I'd never heard of this brand, but they are edgy and comfy all at the same time. Fit is great, a bit on the snug side for me, and I usually wear between a 7.5 and 8--I went with the 7.5 but I'm hoping they stretch just a bit.

I love the rubber treads on this shoe and the overall strong construction. I am athletic and stride around rather heedlessly. I do not like shoes that will slip out from under me! I tried these on along with some others I had ordered from Zappos, and these won the taste tests, separately, with my son, daughter and husband. The 8½ is a little snug, but 9 is too loose. I am keeping the 8½ and hoping the reviewer who says they will loosen up quickly is right. I wish they came in wide. I could use a slightly lower heel as I am not much of a high heel wearer, but these are a keeper for those professional events where something like this is needed.

I broke my ankle 2 years ago, bad bad break. I swore off heels until I found these Tsubo's. I am so happy with this shoe. They look dressy and professional without the typical pain of wearing heels.

I originally saw this shoe in a boutique and absolutely loved the modern asymmetrical cut. I actually ordered the brown, though I thought it was the same red color I saw originally in the store. The shoe's padded interior was extremely comfortable (even for me, a person not used to wearing heels often or every day). Unfortunately, I needed to return them because I needed a half size smaller, which Zappos no longer carries. I could see this shoe being perfect for anyone who wants a classic pump with a modern twist for work. Thanks again to Zappos for the quick shipping!

I need comfortable, stable pumps as I am an international flight attendant on my feet for 18 plus hours. I have needed a "concourse" pump rather than my inflight work shoe & this is was exactly what I've been looking for! I ordered an 8M. They're attractive, sturdy, well made, have a lot of cushioned support inside & out. The shoe heel sits more directly under your heel area eliminating the feeling of the foot sliding into the toe area. I sadly have to return them as I have bunions on one foot & need an 8 wide which they don't make. They fit my good foot beautifully and only wish I could keep them! Highly recommend them & Zappos is more than amazing in their service!

I received the shoes promptly. Wore them around the house on the carpet - slightly tight in toe box, but the rest is comfy. I am keeping them - love the color and padding.

These are comfortable and basic. They are not super sexy, but I can wear them for ten hours with no pain; I even walk up to 1/2 a mile in them regularly.

Great shoe. Comfortable with extra padding in forefoot, cool grippy sole and stretch fabric at heel. This basic black pump has some sass and funk to it!

This is a great shoe! It's very comfortable, stylish and the height is work appropriate. I wear them all the time. They stretch in about two wears. At first I thought they were tight, but now they are perfect.

I found these to run huge! They are much larger than other Tsubo shoes that I have purchased. I would recommend buying half a size down if not more.

These are classy shoes that are good with suits for work. They have a very comfortable heel. They were a bit tight across the toes at first (I have very wide toes). They became comfortable soon.

I would love to write a review about how comfortable these shoes are. Everything about them set them up for success. Unfortunately they did not deliver. The space for the toe is too small for me. The top portion is too short and rubs the top of my foot causing blisters on the top of my toes. If there was more space for the toes I would have nothing but great things to say. The padding is very comfortable and the material in the back of the heel is flexible so there is no rubbing throughout the day.
