Bought these in the grey suede for a wedding and love them. Very comfortable, didn't rub blisters, and just the right heel height. Usually wear a 9.5-10, but in Nine West shoes I wear a 9, and these were no exception.

I love the look of these shoes, but they are way too tight in the vamp. My toes would not make it five minutes in these shoes.

These are perfect shoes for a conservative office environment and they're extremely comfortable. It took me a couple of wears to break them in, but after that I've been on my feet for hours at a time at conferences and they've been amazing!

Great shoe that is comfortable and stylish. I ordered a 6.5 and it was true to size and fit perfect. The heel was a bit shorter than I expected, but still a great shoe to wear to work.

I was looking for something similar to Nine West's Lupetto wedge, which I can't find anymore. This was the closest I could find, and it's way off. The shape of the opening at the front of the foot looks odd. Despite wearing a lot of Nine West shoes and never having an issue with consistent sizing, this shoe was at least 1/2 size too big, if not more. Going straight back to Zappos, unfortunately.

Very pleased with this purchase. The shoe is well made and classic looking. The leather is sturdy yet flexible, so no break-in time was required. As someone who doesn't wear heels all the time, the height felt just right - enough to make you feel "dressed up" but not so much that it is uncomfortable. The soles are constructed in such a way that you get good traction. Nice light gray color that could also pass for taupe in certain light. Definitely a versatile work or special occasion shoe that is comfortable enough to wear the whole day/evening.

I liked the look, but the top of the shoe cuts across the bunion on my foot, so it doesn't work for me. The shoe also seemed to offer less support and cushioning than comparable shoes. Returned.

These shoes look great and the wedge heel make them comfortable for walking and standing. Unfortunately, they are just too narrow and dig in on the top. I was hoping I could stretch them out after a few wears but that has not been the case.

I ordered two pairs of these in a size 6: black and grey leathers. The black leather was too small for my feet but the grey leather fit. They're super cute, and they're not too pointy. The heel height is great for someone who lives in sneakers. Bought this for a summer wedding but the grey goes with everything. Hooray for new semi-dressy shoes!

Nice shoe to wear to the office. The wedge heel is a nice height, but not too high. For my medium width feet, the shoe is wide enough across the toe. The toe of the shoe tapers quickly, but not too quickly, to a point, so you don't the "clown shoe" look you often get with pointed toe shoes.

These shoes are great. At fist I thought they looked like elf shoes because of the toe and the low heel height, but have come to really love them. They are great commuter shoes you can also wear all day at work. They flatter the legs without having to be too tall. The heel height is just right: low enough to be comfortable and high enough to still make your legs look sexy. Overall I recommend them. Very glad I bought them.

Really liked the look of these shoes, the heel height was perfect -- low enough for a day of work, but high enough to not look matronly. Alas, the shallow/narrow vamp hit at an uncomfortable place and rubbed on the sides of my feet.

The shoes are very comfortable for walking because of the wedge. My only issue is that they are tight around the top of my toes. This should be alright after breaking them in. The color is a fun blue, bright enough to make an outfit interesting, but not too bright to be inappropriate for work.

Great work shoe. Didn't need breaking in. I have wide feet and this shoe was okay even though it wasn't a wide version of it. Considering getting other colors.

These shoes are hands down my favorite work shoes I own. I have them in grey suede and black leather. I get constant compliments on both pairs and they are as comfortable as wearing flats.

So comfy! There's extra cushioning inside of these shoes. I love the height and the classic style. However, these are definitely a 1/2 to 1 full size too big. 7 1/2 was too big - I could fit a full finger behind my heel.

I love, love, LOVED this shoe and was devastated that it was too narrow for me. I have wide feet, but most of the time can get away with a regular (tight fitting) shoe. This one was far too tight to bear for any period of time, though. I even kept them for a week and tried them on at different times of day in an effort to keep hope they would fit. No luck. They went back.

These are super sleek and a great gray color. These were just a bit tight for me at the top of the toes.

I love this shoe - love it! I had to buy half size up. The only downside is the material scuffs easily. Other than that I love the color style and height. I have been out dancing in these shoes or just out shopping. I would buy them again.

Very cute style, though the leather looks a little thin and not the best quality. But that's what you get for the price. The pointy toe is a current trend and the heel height is comfortable for someone who finds anything over 2 1/2 inches to be risky. I normally get size 5 1/2 or 6, in this brand as well, but the 5 1/2 seems almost a half-size too small. I'm worried that the 5 may be too tight, but am considering getting it because of the cute style and the comfortable wedge height.

Brands I'd also recommend: Bandolino

Wonderful shoe! Great heel height and it fits nicely! I usually cannot fit my feet into Nine West's 10's so I ordered a 10.5 and it fit perfectly, and with some room. I have yet to spend a day walking in them but I have zero doubt that I would have a problem. I was in love with these shoes from the moment I opened the box!

Great shoe, heel is perfect height for work. The only problem I had was the toe is cut low and wide, and I have a bunion on one side which rubs against it.

Ladies, this is the holy grail of workplace shoes...I love them. They look very sharp, great sheen to the leather, pointed toe dresses it up, perfect heel height and with a wedge it is so comfortable! I just ordered the 2nd pair in the same color...I need a back-up since I intend to wear these out! Great price on top of everything...perfection!

I can wear these wedges all day long; love them! They feel a smidge too narrow, but barely (not enough to cause discomfort; I just notice it sometimes).

I ordered these in the navy leather, and I liked them at first even though there was more toe cleavage than I was comfortable with. After trying them on I noticed a lot of creases in the leather. I knew that if that was what they looked like after trying them on for a few minutes then they would just get worse if I actually wore them, so I had to send them back.
