I have been looking for the perfect black heel forever and this is it - super comfy and goes with everything - I also bought it in suede - love it! True to size but I have wide feet for a 6.5 so was a little snug but nothing I couldn't deal with. Wore them for several hours the standing the first time I went out in them and didn't even have sore feet afterwards!

I like a high heel and can take some pain for short periods of time. However, this is one of the most uncomfortable stiff shoes that I have ever tried on. I am also not a fan of the very "short" front. You can see too much of the toes. Move on to other shoes. This one just isn't worth it.

I love these shoes. They are very comfortable (for high heels) and the first time I wore them I was able to stand in them for hours. The heel is a little on the chunky side but I think that helps them be more comfortable. Also, they have a rubber sole so you don't have to worry about slipping and falling. They are a great work pump and a classic dress pump.

I bought these in black leather and they were even more gorgeous than in the picture. I am a size 10 in most boots and a size 11 in shoes and I can barely squeeze my feet into these shoes! The length seems fine, and the toe box is not tight but the top of the toe box is crazy tight and the back of the heel curls in so you can hardly get your foot in the shoes. I ordered a shoe stretcher, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that this will do the trick!

Classy look, great color and height. Not extremely comfortable on my soles but not stiff either. Unlike many heels I've tried lately, these felt wide enough for my feet but I had to place a foam insert in the heel of the left shoe as my left foot is smaller than my right.

This shoe is very comfortable and very stylish. Plenty of room in the toe box, and the length was perfect for my 8.5-sized feet. The heel isn't too high, and I have no trouble walking in it. I got the gunmetal and the color is so pretty. I highly recommend.

from San Diego, CA

Very pleased with this shoe! I love how the heel isn't super skinny and it has a good sized hidden platform, so its really easy to walk in. Nice leather too. I am a size 7-7.5, but mainly always get 7's. I decided to go with a 7 in these since I always have a problem with shoes slipping off the back of my heel since my heel is pretty skinny compared to the rest of my foot. When I got them I found that the toe box was pretty tight but after I wore them around the house for a bit they started to stretch out. If they are not stretched enough to your liking you could always use the ice stretching method. These are surprisingly comfortable and are now my go-to black pumps that I have been searching for forever! They don't slip off the back of my heel, which is rare, so I'm really happy. I would recommend!

Franco Sarto is a good "go to" brand. Nice black leather pump with a thick enough heel that I didn't fall off!

I have always wanted a leopard print shoe, sandal or something leopard print. I also love platforms even though I can't really walk in shoes that are really high, but this shoe is just right. The platform and thickness of the heel makes it comfortable for me to walk in. It also fits true to size. I love it!

Really liked these shoes but they really had a big gap in the back, they felt fine in the toe so I don't think a 1/2 size smaller would have worked. They went back this morning.

These shoes were comfortable at first, until I realized it was too hard to walk around in because the toe box is very small and cramped my toes. The heel part is too large, my heel kept slipping out. The style is very cute, but not worth it if they aren't comfortable!

I LOVE the look of this shoe. I love Franco Sarto. Unfortunately, the heel of this shoe was just too tall for me. It does have the platform in front, which helps, but the pitch of the shoe from back to front is VERY steep and difficult to walk in. There are NO kinds of traction on the bottom of the shoe, either. Love, but had to send back. :(

I ordered these in blue patent... I love them, it is so difficult to find blue patent shoes nowadays these turned out perfect. Be warned that the heel itself is black so if you do not like this look the shoe may not be the fit for you. I found that I do not slide in these heels like I do in most shoes, they have a little bit of toe cleavage (which I prefer) and are a slightly pointy/rounded heel (not completely round which is unflattering on my feet). They are high, but I found after breaking them in around the house I was able to wear them for hours without being uncomfortable. They were true to size. Franco Sarto is a great brand with an excellent price tag, I may even order in other colors. :)

Brands I'd also recommend: Cole Haan, Madden Girl, BCBG

The shoes are gorgeous every one that saw the fell in love with them the general comment was SEXY SHOES and they are comfortable, however I had to give them 4 stars for comfort because they have a rocking motion as you walk that I just could not handle (I have balance issues since I had hip surgery) my daughter was trilled to t mine misfortune Lol I also like to say that Zappos has the best costumer service, I had ever found any where, courteous, and knowledgeable. May they continue to do a great job. Sincerely very satisfied costumer.

These are the best heels I have ever worn! I have four pair of this style to go with any outfit! They go perfectly with jeans or a night out. I wore them around the house for a few hours to break them in and can now stand and walk around all day in them. I love that the heel is a bit wider to add extra support. I have not had any problem with the heel slipping out at all. A must buy!

Amazing red velvet pumps! For those used to wearing heels, the height is perfect and there's so much traction for walking anywhere. I'm a size 6 or 6.5 usually and I ordered size 6 which fit like a glove! They are one of the most comfortable heels I have ever tried straight out of the box! In love!

These shoes have become my go-to black heels for work. The slight platform at the front makes it comfortable to wear such a high heel without looking too sexy for work. I also love the tapered shape around the toe area -- not pointy, not rounded, the perfect in-between.

I can't say enough good things about these pumps. They are a must-have wardrobe staple. They're quite comfortable, even after a 10 hour work day. I think I might have to get them in every color!

Regarding sizing and if you usually are between sizes (I wear either 8.5 or 9), in this brand you should choose the smaller size. I buy 8.5 in this brand. Regarding fit. This shoe gave me a little more toe-crunch than other Franco Sarto shoes. I think the heel is just exceptionally tall. I plan to try some foot petals to keep from slipping forward. Regarding color and this is a bit of a peachy beige, I'd say. At least, paired with my very pale khaki suit they looked that way. Regarding style. I was worried that the toe would look too stacked, but it doesn't. The photo really does it justice. They are super-tall, though. People will remark on your height if you're tallish like me.

These pumps are terrific. The high heel coupled with the platform allows for fairly easy walking. True to Franco Sarto - they are comfortable as they are attractive. While I found the fit true to size, I'm not sure if the heel cup is more shallow than most shoes, however, because for the first time ever I did have to insert heel grips to keep my heel from slipping out. I wore them around the office to break them in and will definitely wear them dancing!

Anyone wanting a blue shoe might want to know that the heel on this one is black, which I felt didn't look right and I couldn't tell it by the pictures!

These shoes are fairly heavy. The heel height was fine, but it was way too snug. I normally wear a 6, but I ordered a 6.5...even the 6.5 was too narrow and tight. Gorgeous looking shoes, but I'll have to return them.

I love, love, love these heels! I ordered the natural color 1st and as soon as I tried them on ordered a 2nd pair in black patent. Since then I have ordered 2 additional pairs in other colors. I've never bought 4 of the same pairs of shoes before! They are the best heels I've ever bought because they are stylish but still super comfortable, I think due to the thicker heel. I hope they continue to make them and add more colors because I'm sure I'd buy them again when my current pairs wear out.
