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 have loved this style from Nine West for many years. Perhaps they changed something in the material or the manufacturing process, because these shoes are much poorer quality than I have ever seen from this brand. The inner lining and sole of the shoe ripped in several places with just a few times wearing. I am very hesitant to try another pair from Nine West. Very disappointing as I have counted on this style from them for a long time.

Beautiful shoe. Perfect fit. Surprisingly soft insole, Nine West shoes are typical rock hard on the foot. Returning because the leather was wrinkled in places and looked like it was going to crack across the top of the shoe.

Definitely not a wide width! Very disappointing. I also usually buy a 8.5 or a 9. The 8.5 seemed short. The quality of the shoe was nice despite the sizing issues.

Bought these in silver for a wedding, so far right out of the box they feel pretty good, will probably get these in more colors depending on how the night goes (in general I'm not much of a heels kind of gal).

Beautiful shoes, but too high for work (uncomfortable over time). Ok for a short date to dinner or a movie when you are mostly sitting down.

Love this basic pump! Got it in pewter instead of black. Just different enough to be eye-catching. For pointy-toe shoes, I always order half a size up. Normally I wear a 7; I got a 7.5 in these. With heel liners in back, they're perfect. I can see myself being this pump in other colors.

It is almost impossible to find cute heels in a 10.5 and Nine West has become my go to. The Flax style is my fav, I have probably 5 pairs in different colors. My only disappointment has been the natural synthetic it's too tight in the toe but I think it's the material not the sizing.

These are nice looking shoe, however for the sliver I think they would look nicer with higher heels. The shoes are very comfortable so I will order again just in a color that works better with the height of the heel.

I love these shoes. Very comfortable and easy to walk in. I have narrow feet and so it's usually difficult to find shoes that could cover my toes and not pinch my heels. The height is also not too tall.

Very good to break! As I never wear high heels, and felt very comfortable. Most key is followed by don't fall, I'm also into other colors.

Wow, these shoes are gorgeous! Sadly they do not match the dress I purchased them to wear with so I will be very begrudgingly returning them. I really wish I had a reason to keep them! They're too dressy for the office in the bronze metallic but they are perfect for a date night to dress up a pair of jeans, or to wear to another special occasion.

I purchased these in blue suede upper. I do have a wide foot, so I do know I have to get these stretched for width. The toe box is fine, as well as the heel height. Can't wait to wear these!

Unfortunately I cannot write a good review about this shoe. I wear this shoe all the time. However, this purchase did not yield good results. The white of the inside of the shoe rubbed completely off during the first wear. That never happened before. It is in the box to be returned.

These shoes look really sexy and would go with a lot. However they felt about tight in the toe area and stiff all around. I did not want to take a chance that they would not break in so I returned them.

There's are a great shoe style-wise. Beautiful and comfortable, since it seems that Nine West put more cushioning in the sole than they normally do. I loved the looks of them so much I bought them in black and metallic navy. In all my years I've never had a heel snap on me but within a few hours of wearing both in ordinary conditions, the heels either snapped right off the base or started coming off the base. On further inspection it looks like the heel is held very minimally, with plastic like plugs rather than traditional nails. Zappos was great and exchanged them right away. I've worn the black ones out one evening to dinner with no problems so far. I'm hoping this is an issue related to maybe just the lot that my shoes came from as they're a beautiful shoe!

I absolutely love Nine West heels, but the stitching on these heels unraveled within the first week of wearing them. I was very disappointed. I am on my feet all day and Nine West heels are so comfortable that I do not even think about my feet during a nine hour day. These are comfortable, but the stitching unraveling is extremely disheartening. I would suggest going with a different style or material.

If you're looking for a black pointy-toe pump, this is it. The heel is the perfect height, and the style is so versatile -- I've worn to a wedding, and a casual night out with jeans. I highly recommend!

Bad quality! This shoe fell apart within the first few weeks of wear. The top material is so thin it literally ripped on both shoes, and the sole is so poorly made that it cracked on one shoe. I have bought plenty of Nine West shoes in the past, and this is the worst quality I have ever seen! Horribly disappointed.

These shoes are classy and comfortable. I wore through my old Nine West black heels and was looking for a replacement. These are a little higher than my old pair, which I could wear for 8 hours without an issue, but the increased height does look very nice.
