Very cute and comfortable for a few hours. Fit exactly to size. Heel a little higher than I prefer, I'm 5'9, but I knew that before ordering. I really love the look!

No, no, no! Okay, there is a bit of a smell that was mentioned by others. However, mine wasn't as bad. One of the moistened bags had broke and the grains were all in the box and the shoes, even got under the padding on the inside. It wouldn't have mattered though because these are officially the most uncomfortable shoes I've ever tried on. Seriously!. The toe box looks a little wide, but when you put it on, it pinches your toe (really bad). However, I think they would slip if I ordered a bigger size. Please know that I wear heals everyday to work! I had them on for < 1 minute. Cute overall, but I wonder how well the strapping will hold up. I'm sure well because you won't ever be able to wear them. They are going back! Nine west is still my favorite shoe. I ordered the Nine West, Austin at the same time. I haven't worn them yet, but they look nice and feel good when tried on. We will see how they hold up to a full day of work, tomorrow.

Very cute and comfortable shoe. They seem to run just a little small so I'm switching for a half size up.

Cute shoe! I ordered this shoe in a wide but huge mistake. I should have gotten it in a regular width. I consider myself to have a wide foot but did not need it in this shoe for some strange reason. Anyway, love the shoe, but had to send it back due to the fact that it seriously gaped open due to the wideness. I would say do not order wide unless your foot is really, really wide.

Love the style! It's my husband's favorite shoe. The heel feels solid - I don't feel unbalanced despite the height.

This is a great looking shoe. It's a nice dark brown that was exactly as pictured. The only problem was that my heel slipped in the shoe. The foot slides forward mashing the toes, and the heel slips out as I walk. This was corrected with a small ball of the foot petal.

These shoes look great and are comfortable, but they stink like a campfire. That is so funny because I had them in my closet initially. When my husband came into the room he thought the neighbors started their fireplace up already! Meanwhile, it was the shoes! They are airing in the garage right now. I want to wear them, but I do not want the fire smell!

Really wanted to like this shoe, but it's going back. The leather smells terrible, and it's at least a half size smaller than marked. Styling is cute, but not enough to keep it.

This shoe is cute but the heel was 4 inches high. I wear an 8M but got an 8W because of the heel and could hardly get in on. I had to send back.

I ordered these shoes for my sister's wedding, she was very picky about what shoes the bridesmaids will wear. But she absolutely loves these shoes, I have only worn them a little around the house to get used to walking in heels, they are are pretty comfortable! And they do look really cute.

Great looking shoe. My husband, who hates my taste in fashion, actually loved this shoe. It's so cute but runs small by half a size and therefore is extremely uncomfortable. The shoe itself is not narrow but the toe box is very narrow and scrunches the toes badly. Don't know if half a size bigger will be more comfortable or if it will just slip out.

I bought these shoes to wear with my brown outfits. The ones that I have been wearing just look worn down and I needed a new pair. I like these because they are neutral and I do not have to worry about my browns matching! They are tall, but do not feel that tall because of the platform. The only complaint I have is that they do not breathe very well (as with most dress shoes).

I absolutely love these shoes. They are very well made and look really nice with almost anything given the nutrality of the colors. I will enjoy these for years I am sure! The delivery and packaging were awesome. Zappos makes shopping so much easier with the free, no hassle return policy. I am very pleased with the service.

Possibly the most comfortable heel I've bought! The sides are very light and flexible, unlike other shoes that are stiff and dig into the heel and ankle. I would definitely recommend them.

Most comfortable shoes ever! I usually don't rate what I buy, but I had to let everyone know that I loved these shoes! First of all, I don't know anything about the smell mentioned in other reviews. I work at an office from 8 to 5, in my lunch hour I have to go home and rest because if I don't, at the end of the day my feet are all swollen. The first day I wore these shoes, I had a meeting and lots of customers. Well, it was like wearing sneakers! They have the perfect height but since they have a little platform (that you don't see, thank God), you still look taller without the pain. I am definitely buying more shoes from this brand! Loved them!

Could these be any cuter? No! I'd been looking at the for a while and finally ordered them. I love them! I will pair them with every tan/ivory neutral I have. They are so different!

I fell in love with this shoe at first sight and ordered it in my regular size. Unfortunately, it was small so I had to reorder in a full size larger. In that size it is a comfortable shoe and I wore it 6 hours the first time with no problems. It is a winner, in my book!

This shoe looks SO cute but is much too small. I actually ordered a 12W just to be comfortable but it fit like a 10/11. Horrible sizing. Super tight and couldn't even get my foot in. Returned!

I've had some trouble with other Type Z brand shoes slipping off my heels, but these fit great. They're also comfortable. I've worn them every day for a week and have had no issues. I also get lots of compliments!

Very comfortable after breaking in. They were slightly tight in the toe box but after a few wears they got better. I wear these about once a week and they are tolerable. The only spot that hurts me now is the top of my second toe will rub against the inside and I don't have oddly shaped toes either...only pair of shoes that does this. They are a very cute style though!

I wear heels every day and am on my feet a lot. These shoes are a little tight in the toe box but once I wore them a while they seemed to stretch. Very happy with my purchase.

I believed some of the reviews and ordered a half size larger than my normal size. Guess what? They were too big. I like the shoes enough to try my normal size now.
