Runs about a full size too large. Otherwise the black polished leather is stunning. Way better than pebbled or patent. I hate having to put stuffing or padding in my shoes just to make them fit and would normally keep looking or buy expensive designer stuff that fits just right. But I'm going to sleep on this one and decide later...because I can't buy this in another size. I'm already a 5 and they don't have 4.

I usually order a half size smaller in Nine West shoes. This may have been a mistake with these because they felt a little snug in the toe box. I like the look of the shoes. The height is great for dressing up an outfit without killing my feet. The small platform makes them comfy. I would buy them again.

I originally ordered in a size 8 but they fell off my feet. Exchanged them for a 7.5 same problem. Love the looks of the shoes but they are absolutely unwearable. My heel slips right out of the shoe. Horrible! It might be because they are platforms which someone else said.

Great looking shoes with just the right heel height. However, decided to return them as the heel is just way too wide (as commented by other reviewers). Although the shoes are just big enough, my heels slip out with every step, making these shoes very uncomfortable to wear.

Love how these shoes look online but it did not have the antique taupe look that I hoped for when I received them. They were also smaller than I thought they would be.

I love the looks of these shoes but I had the same problem as other people - the shoe slips off at the heel, really bad. I couldn't walk in them at all. I hobbled. I ordered them in a size 8 but they are too large to wear. I'm exchanging them for a 7.5. I hope that fixes the problem. They're adorable.

Pretty cheaply made upper. "Material" on the heel kind of "folded" down when trying it on. Very disappointed.

These were very loose on the heel, the shoes came off at every step. I don't have narrow feet, and the length was perfect, just a strange fit in the heel. Comfy footpad, nice basic styling but couldn't walk in them.

These shoes were too narrow. They were excruciating on the base of my big toe. I couldn't walk more than a few steps. I love the style and wish that Nine West had developed them with feet in mind.

These are so stiff that when you walk, they basically fly off your feet. Not a good design.

I have other more expensive shoes like the Selene that claim to be special comfort design but none are as comfortable as these. I know I only gave them 4 stars for comfort - but they are heels so that's the best it can get! Well worth the money, stylish and comfortable as can be.

Great basic high heel at a reasonable price! The only complaint I have is that I got small blisters on my little toes after wearing them for the first time. Overall a good looking shoe.

Bought these to wear for interviews and needed a pair of shoes I can walk through the airport in comfortably. These seem to fit the bill (though I haven't been to the airport yet). The only issue is like with most platforms, they run a 1/2 size too big. I wish the manufacturers would start adjusting for this. There is something about the addition of a platform that seems to make the shoe not fit well in the back - I've found this with numerous platform shoes. It's kind of annoying because I've been a 7.5 my whole life and I don't want to have to think to order 7s whenever I'm buying a platform. The shoe feels very comfortable on the foot with a soft giving leather.

Love the color and style. But I have narrow heels and these just would not stay on my feet, in part because they fit a half size larger than stated.

Very nice shoe. It runs big, however, and I actually needed a 7 when I usually wear a 7.5.

I bought this shoe in Taupe after trying it on at DSW. I'm not a heels girl, but the platform on the Nine West pump makes it more comfortable. I ordered my normal heels size of 7.5, and I think it fits just slightly larger (but not a half size larger). The taupe color is so pretty and will go with everything. The only problem I had with the shoe is a Nine West thing. Their insole pulls up under the toes. As with other versions of Nine West shoes, I had to fix the insole with foam mounting tape. Now they are fine. Nine West has always been a favorite of mine. Great styles and well made shoes for a good price.

The style of this pump is lovely, and the heel height is just right for me. I love the wood heel and platform. The toe box is rounder than I expected, but still looks great. The reason I'm returning them is that I wasn't very happy with the color - I ordered the "natural leather" color, which has a kind of orange-y undertone. It won't work for me, but might be just fine for others!

It is a very comfortable shoe but it was not true to fit if you are ordering it order a half size smaller. It is classy look especially for a young professional.

Beautiful shoe. Love Nine West. They have comfortable heel heights and widths while still staying en vogue. It was a little tighter in the toes section than expected but gets comfortable with wear. Lovely color, very neutral.

I'm about to order a second pair exactly the same. This is a true navy which is so very hard to find. Shoe is comfortably cushioned and a good working height. The shoe runs true to size but the heel is far too roomy for the average foot - so purchase the heel inserts at the same time you by the shoe (no kidding, you will walk out of them otherwise). Nice quality at great price.

These are cute platform pumps - and one of the few options if you don't want a 4" heel. Because of the small platform, they are a bit stiff, but they softened up after the first few days of wearing them. My heel was slipping out the back, so I had to add some foam tape to the back, and since then it hasn't been a problem. No blisters, no crazy sore feet. I'll be buying these in other colors to be my go-to pumps!

Love them. A little tight if you don't have pretty narrow feet. Very Kate Middleton, which is why I bought them.

Sometimes I find that following reviews suggestions don't work out as well as if I had just made my best guess and ordered. I ordered these in the patent leather and they are very pretty with a lot of padding and feel very high quality. However, I sized half a size down due to suggestions of reviewers and they were way too small. I decided not to get another pair because I felt like the style looked a little too old for me (early 20s) and the toe looked too long for my liking.
