After wearing these 3 times the seam stitching let go. I love the style and color but the quality was unacceptable.

I read the review about the heel 'slipping'. I've never had problems with that in the past so ordered the shoes. Unfortunately, it's true the heel slipped terrible even with inserts to keep it from happening.

I am very disappointed with this shoe. I like Nine West Shoes, they are usually very comfortable. Seems like every time I wear this shoe it gets bigger. It is at a point now that I cannot wear the shoe at all. I tried putting insoles, but that caused my feet to hurt. Since I have worn the shoe, I of course cannot return them. So I am stuck with a pair of shoes, that I really like, but cannot wear. Very disappointed.

I wish I'd never purchased this shoe. Looks great on; heel height is nice for business attire. But that's where the kudos stop. Miserable fit that has gotten worse the more I wear them. Toe box is short even though I ordered a larger size; heel is very loose. Can't wait to replace them with something else. A total waste of money.

These look great, but feel terrible! The first pair of 9 west shoes I have ever been disappointed in. So I guess that is a good thing.

This is my second review on these shoes. After a huge size 8, I just had to return a teensie size 7½ and now I am giving up. These are nice shoe, but there is lousy quality control.

One word: Ouch! These shoes are really cute but the leather is super stiff. That would be okay, I don't mind stretching them and wearing them around the house for awhile first but the biggest problem is that these shoes are really compressed. There is no room for your toes and they push on the top of your feet. Couldn't walk five steps in them although the length/width was right.

I'm so disappointed with these shoes! When I walked around on the carpeting they were uber comfortable. However, after just a few hours in an office, the back of the shoe started to slip off my feet. I stuffed the front with tissue and when that didn't work I purchased those cushions for the heel. Still nothing worked.

Slip off heel & painful to bunions! These are the most painful shoes I've ever purchased. I made the mistake of wearing them outside so now I can't return them. They keep slipping off my heel which causes pressure on the front of my foot, the front arch hits directly on my bunion. Its a shame because style-wise they are the perfect work shoe - perfect height & style. Painful - I just wasted the money; wish I could return. I will think twice about ordering a Nine West shoe again.

I do not recommend these shoes. The toe is too narrow and the heel is way to wide. They look a bit matronly, as well. The heel height is comfortable with the substantial platform, but they are just unwearable unless you've got tiny toes and fat heels.

Nine West Selene were really nice looking, basic black pumps. However, they cut into my foot exactly where my bunion is located, so they are being returned. If that is not an issue, they may suit, as they seemed comfortable otherwise. FYI, they did run 1/2 size longer than my other Nine West shoes.

These shoes are so cute! I wore them to a wedding with an orange dress and they looked adorable. The heel isn't too high so they're still comfortable and you can actually walk normally (not up on your toes the whole time).

I am a size 5b or 5m. But this pair of shoes feel like they are size a 6. No amount of cotton or Dr. Scholl's linings could make it fit.

This shoe is a great heel for work. The small platform makes it easy to walk in, without having too short of a heel. It fits true to Nine West sizes. I wear a 6 in their "Ambitious" heel, and the 6 in the "Selene" fits perfectly. The cushion in the foot bed is also nice, and cooshier than the "Ambitious." Would definitely recommend this shoe!

I don't really have the time to write reviews like this, but I did want to share my thoughts on this shoe because I am so happy with it. First, I was initially very disappointed that the natural leather in the half size down was sold out. I thought that, based on the reviews that I would definitely need a 7 instead of my standard 7.5. I wanted this color so badly that I decided to just make a 7.5 "work" even if a little too big (typical woman-shoe story, right?). I am delighted that the 7.5 fits perfectly. It is a classy and very well-made shoe, very much like a banana republic or traditional j crew style. I think I can teach my 1.5 hour English classes in it and put off the danskos for a few more years, I hope!

Perfect shade of nude (I'm fair). Really comfortable heel height. I have been looking for a stylish, comfy nude heel for years and these fit the bill. And they are inexpensive! Double score! Great purchase!

I'm 5'10" and wear size 11M without fail. These seemed a bit big with 1/4 inch between my heel and the back of the shoe. The black lizard print is cute, subtle, and would otherwise be a great option church/work and not a "stand-on-your-feet" job, though. This heel is HIGH.

Love these shoes! I have these in both black and tan/natural. These shoes are really nicely made (true to the quality I expect from Nine West shoes), with a really nice smooth leather upper. As you can probably tell from the photos, the stacked heel has a "polished" sheen to it, which I think is a nice touch. I got these shoes because I wanted a nice quality, basic pump in black (when I say "basic," I mean no real embellishments or crazy prints, etc.) to wear to work. This shoe has exceeded my expectations! It has really become my go-to pair of heels. They are actually comfortable, as heels go. They haven't given me any blisters, even when they were straight out of the box (I don't know about you all, but that's practically a miracle for me when it comes to heels)! They are a very classy shape and style, and I've found them to be very versatile. For example, I've worn them to work, to nice dinners, or even for a night out with dark jeans. I loved the black pair so much that I also got it in tan/natural. The only slight drawback I noticed is that, when I wore them the first couple of times, the bottom of the shoe is a little slippery on hard floors, but I found that this went away after maybe 4 wears. So, if you're looking for a basic, nicely made pump, try this one out!

I love these shoes! I have the Selene in both Black and Natural. I had originally ordered the Nine West Rocha shoe, but the heel was just too tall for me. I do well in the 3"-3.5" heel range, and this shoe was closer to a 4+" heel. Anyway, I found the answer to my problems with the Selene! It's a great height for me (heel is around 3"-3.5"), and it is such a classic style pump, a staple for anyone's closet. Plus, I actually do find these shoes comfortable (as comfortable as 3" heels can get, anyway). They are not too narrow in the front (don't pinch my toes), and I can walk comfortably in them. I definitely recommend the Selene if you want a classic (and stylish) pump to add to your collection.

This is the perfect shoe for the office! Adds a little bit of height, but not too much to be inappropriate for work. I normally wear a 8.5 in sneakers/boots, but I ordered these in a 8 and they were still a bit big until I added heel cushions to make them fit more snug. Great price for a great work shoe!

I absolutely love these shoes! They fit true to size in my experience, and the heel is plenty high for me, but it's a comfortable height (I can actually walk in them). These are the most comfortable heels I have ever had, bar none. Also, the leather is good quality. Definitely recommend these!

I normally wear a 7 1/2 but these were a half size big. Keeping that in mind, they felt comfortable and I really love the style. The quality seems good. Will be exchanging these for a smaller size.
