I bought these in the leopard calf hair and they are totally beautiful! Sexy but sophisticated; nice with skirts, a dress, slim pants, skinnies -- so versatile, and spot on with the animal trend. Also true to size and totally comfortable, with a medium high but completely walkable heel. I'm in love! If you want a pair of animal print pumps, get these now -- you will be thrilled!

I was extremely disappointed in this shoe. First of all, the material is very flimsy, and for a person who is very comfortable walking in heels all day long, these made me feel like I was wearing heels for the first time. Secondly, the lining of the shoe tore after only one day of wearing them. Finally, the fabric on the outside of the shoe is pealing. I would absolutely not recommend buying this shoe.

I love this shoe. I've only worn it 3 times. I always get compliments. Zappos has the best customer service ever.

This shoe is a lot of style for a very fair price. If you are looking for a pointed toe pump, this is a great choice. It is comfortable with a padded bed. Only two concerns are that the toe area is a little narrow and the length of the toe is not very long so for some, it may expose some toe cleavage! For me the fit is great and I got them in a bunch of colors.

These are the best heels ever! I know they look a little scary with the skinny heel but they are actually so comfortable I wear them all the time at work and my feet never hurt.

These are a fantastic pair of black pumps. They are classic and totally current at the same time - in fact I feel they look a bit like the similarly styled Louboutins, but with a less perilous heel and price tag. I barely ever wear heels, but these were comfortable from the get go. No breaking in period. I have a bunion on one side and the vamp offers terrific coverage - it does not cut at the bone point,as I have often, unfortunately experienced. I also have narrow heels and have difficulty finding pumps that do not pop off my foot - and these did not, there is a bit of room though for those of you who's heel might not be as narrow. I generally wear an 8½ in closed shoes and an 8 in sandals. I ordered an 8 in these and they have a nice snug fit, but not too tight. I am 48 years old, wore them to a Caribbean resort over the holidays and danced my tush off. The only issue was a bit sore the next day, but no specific rub point, which was good and not surprising. When I got home, my cat somehow opened the shoe box and scratched the natural leather, but I thought these were such a wardrobe essential, that I ordered another pair. If you need the classic, cool, comfortable pumps, these are them! If an old lady like me finds them comfortable, you probably will, too!

I am obsessed with these. I bought them in Pewter for my rehearsal dinner - was on my feet all night, and then out, dancing. My feet did not hurt like they usually do the next day. I was comfortable and happy all night. I then went and bought them in off white and black too. I am thinking about buying the nude color as well! These shoes are high enough to where you do not feel dowdy (I am used to 4+ inch going out heels, I am 25), but low enough to where they are respectable for work. They make you feel sexy when you dress sexy, but they make you feel powerful and professional when that is how you are dressed. My going out height heels only ever make me feel sexy, and they feel out of place in the workplace.

These shoes have fallen apart. The inside of the shoe are all torn apart and the back are all scuffed up. I only wear them in the office and they look worn and terrible. Not a shoe that was just purchased. I would return them but I don't have the shoe box!

The first time i wore these shoes the inside material started to shred, and the second time I wore these shoes, the entire inside material was completely ripped. The show is comfortable, but the white inside layer is now gone and comes oustide the shoe. I have had many Nine West shoes, and these are the first ones that are such bad quality. I question if shoes sold cheaper on-line are in fact, the real Nine West shoes or are they made form a different manufacturer, and cheaply made. Very poor quality.

It's better feeling than the pair he got before. For some reason they are 3/4 of a full size bigger so be aware when ordering one of these. Thanks.

Very comfortable & cute. I have the same shoe in black. This shoe's heel feels higher than the black version of it. Either way it's still a good fit, not too high.

These shoes are great! The style is very conservative, there is no 'toe cleavage' and the heel is a little bit lower than I usually get. Which, makes them totally sensible for work, while not being SO sensible that you'll feel dowdy. I feel sexy, powerful, and confident when I wear these, but I don't feel TOO sexy. I wear these with skirts, dresses, suits, and more. I've also worn hem with fancy cocktail dresses. They have some good cushioning in the toe box and I can dance the night away in these, whereas other heels my feet will be screaming. The fact that the box comes up a bit higher on your toes than many other shoes means the 'corners' rub less than many other shoes I've encountered. I range from 6.5-7.5 in sizes depending on the brand, but tend to identify as a '7' and assume if I'm a half size that specific brand runs big/small as applicable. The 7s fit me perfectly in these shoes.

Great heel height - can walk comfortably even with small feet - but still a sexy enough heel for after hours work dinners.

These are great pumps! They are high enough that they do not feel dowdy, but low enough you can happily wear them to work. They have really good cushioning built in, and the shoebox comes up high enough on your foot that it does not seem to rub like heels sometimes do. These pumps are literally easier to wear all day than one of my comfortable pairs of flats. I have them in multiple colors!

Flax is my go-to heel. Anytime I need a closed toe pump, I immediately see if the color is available in this design. I have a wider foot and my foot is comfortable in these shoes, even for long periods of time. The only downside is that the heel can scuff somewhat easily. I highly recommend them!

This is a true Nine West classic. Having other Nine West "Flax" pumps that are quite comfortable, I fell in love with the python leather pattern of the Yellow Leather 2 and Pink RP thinking they would fit the same. Unfortunately, the leather was very hard and very uncomfortable, not at all like the smooth leather Flax pumps I own. Stay away from this type of leather regardless of how pretty it looks. At least this makes it easy to return.

I ordered these in 'flax', the yellow leather - unfortunately these felt way smaller than any of the other pairs of Nine West shoes I ordered, plus the finish was awful. Some of the leather was a bit puckered and looked cheap. I actually thought I'd been sent 'factory seconds'. Disappointing, I can usually order anything in an 8.5 from Nine West and not have a problem. I'll keep looking for a pair of yellow leather pumps!

The color is not as rich as the photo and the look of shoe are different as well. The front of the shoe appears to be longer in the photo as well. They also feel a little tight. overall, not very impressed.

Luxurious, comfortable, and sleek. These shoes are delicious and I just wanted everyone who's hesitating to buy them that they are worth it. The heel is the perfect height, not too high/uncomfortable after 2 minutes, but enough to give you a little extra. I also have very narrow feet which can make finding shoes that don't slip off my heel when I walk a problem. These don't do that. Win!
