Although these shoes are gorgeous, I am having a hard time with how the heel cuts into the back of my foot. I am hoping that the patent is just stiff, and am trying to soften them up with moleskin and massage. I plan on keeping them (I bought the nude) and continuing to work on making them comfortable.

Me again from Seattle. I'm sadly going to have to return these shoes. The heel cuts in like a knife, and no matter what I try, I just can't wear them. Am returning them and trying the Rockport nude peep toe. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Wide width... finally a shoe company that actually follow through on the wide width promise... alas, I followed another reviewer's advice and went 1/2 size down to accommodate the wider width... mistake. The top of the shoe from peep toe back is pretty long, covering all of the toe cleavage... and actually cutting into my skin. The material making the heel pocket it pretty narrow and tall, so it cut into my skin as well... returned.

I ordered these in black, 7W. The toe box is much tighter than it should be for a wide shoe and because the heel is so high and fairly rigid, comfort is compromised. I kept them hoping that they would stretch out over time, because they are a very nice looking, high black heel with some sex appeal, which can be difficult to find in a wide width. Unfortunately, they are still not comfortable, but I still wear them because they really do look great.

These shoes are very cute! Color looks much more caramel in photo- it's actually a great nude tone. However, these shoes runs small both length and width wise. I wear a 7-7.5 and this shoe fit very tight. I returned this 7 I ordered for a 7.5 Wide.

These are very pretty, but do not underestimate other reviews saying they run very small, because I did and now I have to return them. Normally a 10C would fit perfectly, but I could not even get my foot in these. The length was way too short, but the width was OK.

Surprisingly comfortable on first wear! I bought my usual size in wide, and did not have any trouble with the back of the shoe on my ankle. Nicely constructed so that toes peep, not plunge.

I loved the look, and the price can't be beat. If you are ordering a wide-width, I would recommend going a half size DOWN.

These shoes are beautiful. The only problem I had the first day was that the top edge of the heel really cut into my foot. I do not know if the patent is just stiff or what, but I barely made it through the day. Maybe they just need more wearing in...

Heel was a little higher than looked/expected. The shoe is also a lighter tone than what appears online. I haven't gotten a chance to wear them yet because they just didn't work for what I was wanting them for but it's a basic pump I know I'll wear in the future.

Brands I'd also recommend: chinese laundry, Rampage, Steve Madden

The support arch in the heal broke on the first night I got to wear these shoes. I have really small feet, I usually can wear size 5, but these shoes runs like they wear a half size larger. I had to add two insole in them in order to wear them for my event that evening. Even though it broke they held up pretty well that evening. The following day I took them to a shoemaker for repair. Overall its a pretty cool shoe.

Very uncomfortable. It felt like I was standing straight up on the ball of my foot. This isn't an extremely high heel like many other shoes so I don't think it is uncomfortable because of that. The shoe was very tight, however, my toes were not sticking too far out of the peep toe so I don't think a bigger shoe would have solved the problem.

I bought the Type Z Darla Peep Toe in both the nude color and the black patent. I am generally always a size 7.5, but I have wider feet. So, I bought the nude color in 7.5W and they fit really nicely. They were very roomy. My foot did keep slipping out as a result, because they were a tad bit too long, but after I added a heel cushion in the shoe, it was absolutely perfect. I was debating about getting a size 7, but I think the 7 would have been too small or would not have been as comfortable of a fit, so I opted for the 7.5. I can wear this shoe all day or all night, and it is super comfortable. I usually hate heels for the very simple reason that they hurt my feet after a couple hours. These did not. They are the most stylish, most comfortable patent leather pumps I've ever found for my foot size. And, they are super duper cute. In fact, I loved these so much, I bought the same pair in black. I did find that the black pair fit differently, though. They fit more snugly in the toe box area, so I was a bit disappointed. It seems there is quite a bit of variation on the fit of these shoes. According to reviews, some are perfect, some are too big, some are too small. My recommendation would be to just try it. You can always return it for free. Once you find the fit that is right for you, you will love these shoes.

Great shoe! I have short, wide feet with a high arch and a high instep. These shoes are actually really comfortable. They didn't squeeze my toes in the toe box, and the heel sits well. My only concern is the part that goes across the foot. The top part goes kinda high up and cuts into my instep a bit. Not noticeable until midday, so these still get high marks....and hopefully that will stretch out with wear. Beautiful color that matches my skin tone! Overall great purchase and will look into this brand again. It's hard to find pretty shoes in wide widths!

I bought the Type Z Darla Peep Toe in both the nude color and the black patent in 7.5W. I am generally always a size 7.5, but I have wider feet. I loved the fit of the nude pair. They were incredibly comfortable and cute. But, I was a bit disappointed, because I found that the black pair fit slightly differently and not as nicely as the nude pair. They fit more snugly in the toe box area (they weren't cut as wide as the nude pair). Overall, they are still awesome shoes, but for me, not as awesome as the nude pair. After reading other reviews, it seems there is quite a bit of variation on the fit of these shoes. According to reviews, some are perfect, some are too big, some are too small. My recommendation would be to just try it out in either color. You can always return it for free. Once you find the fit that is right for you, you will love these shoes. FYI: Don't get discouraged if the shoe seems a bit too big for you. Try to see if you can just put some heel cushions in there to keep your foot from slipping out. You might be happier with that instead of going down a size smaller. When I went down a size, I was less happy with the fit. The toe box ended up being tighter even though the length was a better fit. So, I ended up going back to the bigger size and adding heel cushions. That worked better for me.

The fit of these shoes were okay, but the material is unforgiving of feet that are not completely straight. I don't know how many people have the same condition of feet as I do, but just putting it out there. The toe area comes up high so it provides a bit of support to the top of the foot, which is really nice, but again unforgiving of those with high arches. Also, the bottoms of the shoe are made of rubber, to prevent slipping, which makes walking in these high heels a lot easier. The camel color is a tad shade darker than pictured...think camel, and you'll really get a camel colored shoe.

I ordered 7W and can fit my finger between my heel and the back of the shoe. I will have to return these and order a 6.5W and a 6W to see if either of them will work out. I never deviate from a size 7 and was very surprised these were so big. I hope either of the 6's work out the style is very versatile, much more "current" looking than the picture. Simple but not dowdy at all.

After reading a few reviews I was really excited about these. Especially since I could actually get a 10 1/2! I ordered a wide and it's too wide yet too narrow. My toes are packed into the front and my heal pops out of the back so badly I couldn't take one step in them. I'm sending them back and trying a different shoe.
