Very comfortable shoes; however it slips at the back. I had to buy an insert to keep my foot from slipping.

I normally wear 8.5 wide, but this shoe just fell off the back of my foot. Maybe because it's a high heel, my foot slides far forward. I might try a smaller size. It's really cute though!

These do not bend at all...if they did, they might actually stay on. But they are a good heel height.

These shoes were sort of "meh". They fit ok, but the color seemed odd and the cut was just too stodgy for my taste.

Great shoes, but definitely a half size too big and narrow. I don't consider myself to have wide feet, but I usually wear a 9 and after multiple attempts I ended up getting these in an 8.5W. Luckily Zappos has free shipping.

The shoes looked great in the picture and great on until I took the first step. They hit me wrong on the toe cleavage and slip in the heel. Hot shoes but they have to go back.

The heel on this one is loose -- it flops around when I walk. Back it goes. Too bad -- nice-looking shoe.

Nice looking shoe but poorly made. I don't wear these shoes every day and they are busting at the seams already. They aren't a tight fit either. Not even a year and they are coming apart. Very disappointed because its a very nice looking pump that is easy to walk in.

"I wish I had headed the advice of reviewers!" This shoe is really pretty and perfect for achieving the look of a higher heeled shoe with a small platform. However, they just don't fit. I loved the way mine looked so much that I threw in a couple inserts and at first thought the problem was solved. Nope. Very uncomfortable, one felt like it was always coming off (Nine West always seems to make one bigger than the other; I only realized after buying more expensive brands that my feet are, actually, pretty much the same size!), it wasn't a natural fit, and there's no rubber padding on the bottom so they are very loud and you can feel the impact. I'll be wearing mine only when I don't plan to walk. I agree with other reviews indicating it's a quality control problem...very disappointed in Nine West! I so wanted these to be wearable/comfortable!

Nice design, comfortable cushioning in the foot bed; however, the left shoe slips at the heel, even with an insert. It appears the left shoe is bigger than the right. I even purchased 1/2 size smaller than I normally do because I read the reviews.

I really wanted to like these shoes, but they did not fit well. They are so cute and if they fit well on you, you will love them. But I always wear a 7 1/2 and these had gaps in the back and I couldn't even take one step in them without them coming off! So disappointed.

I've got the same complaints about this shoe that many other people complained about. No flex in the sole, it's stiff, very hard to walk in and keeps flipping off my foot. I'm a 7.5 and ordered a 7 which fit fine but pinched at the front, ordered another brand at the same time (that looked almost identical) but the fit and comfort is of no comparison, they looked the same for appearance but these ones are going back!

These are the most uncomfortable pumps I have ever owned. They do not bend. My foot would fall out of the shoe with every step I took as when my foot would bend, the shoe would just pop off my heel! Heel also seemed too wide for a medium width and the shoe a 1/2 size too big. I need to return them or give them away :(. They are very cute but unwearable.

I love everything about these shoes, the look, the style, how they feel when I first put them on...however, as soon as I took a step I walked out of them. Very frustrating! I don't have narrow feet or anything. I have no idea why these did not work for me. Back they go.

Stretched out within 6 months (worn less than twice a month). I used to love these shoes. At first glance, these shoes still look brand new; except for normal wear on the bottom/exterior of the shoe bed. Now, I would suggest everyone buy them a 1/2 size smaller to allow for "give" over time.

I loved the look of these shoes and ordered a 7, which was way too big. I stepped right out of them. I ordered half a size smaller and it was more like a full size smaller everywhere. I could barely get the 6½ on! Sizing does not appear to be consistent.

These shoes look great, but as many reviewers have shared, the fit is horrendous. The heels are disproportionately roomy. I purchased heel grips in hopes of saving these shoes, but am constantly stepping out of them. In the future, I'll stick with more expensive brands that have better quality control!

I love the look of these shoes, but, I bought my usual size of 7½, which was too big! I exchanged them for half a size smaller, and the toe box was too small/tight! I had to wear them to work, but my heels slip out of the back, while the toes are getting blisters! Ouch! These just do not fit right, and usually Nine West fits well. I am disappointed that there is not a way to know how these fit from the manufacturer.

Very pretty shoe, but they definitely run too big. I normally take a size 9 (last time I bought heels) so I ordered an 8.5. They are still too big, my heels keeps popping out with every step. I've tried heel cushions and they still don't help. I can't return them because they have a few slight marks on the bottom from me trying to walk in them (on carpet) so now I am stuck with shoes that don't fit. I will keep trying to find something to wedge in the back so my heel stays put. Otherwise, a nice shoe, but I would not recommend because of the sizing issue.

These shoes look great but are very uncomfortable. They were the perfect shoe to wear on a recent business trip. Very classy yet stylish. After an hour or so I wish I had brought along a second pair of shoes to change to. I have a narrow foot and they were still very tight across the toe area.

I love the style of the shoe. They run wider than a typical Nine West shoe. I have trouble keeping them on my feet, even with shoe inserts.

Ugh..I love the look of this shoe and I am so sad to have to send them back. Every step my heel comes out. I ordered two sizes...even the one that fits falls off. The heel is just two wide for a shoe that doesn't bend or something. So disappointed because I wanted these a while and now I have to keep looking for a patent leather pump.

I agree with the other reviewer. I wanted to love this shoe and I wanted it in every color, but there is a gap on the back of each heel that makes them slip right off.

Beautiful and flattering (got them in tan) but one shoe was noticeably a different shade than the other shoe! It looked...weird. Had to regretfully return.
