This is a rather comfy shoe, though I had a bit of a pinch in the toe box area. I also noticed that most patent leathers, including these, tend to squeak a bit when walking. These are no exception. Finally, these are designed as more of a comfort shoe and aren't exactly sexy but look great under pants or with jeans. Would have liked additional arch support as there is none built into the shoe (this is the same with ever pair of Fitzwell; if you need arch support you have to buy inserts).

As time goes by, I'm increasingly disappointed by this shoe. It is so pretty - the color is really lovely; but I have to walk uber-carefully in them because 1) they have no traction and cause you to slip around on tile or linoleum floors, and 2) the part where the sides touch your feet is rough and scratchy - I remember thinking 'razor blade-like' on the first day of wearing them (without socks), and 3) after a few wearings they have stretched out and feel baggy. And I ordered the smallest size possible! My coping mechanism, since it's too late to return them: have to wear socks or tights with them, and will have to buy some kind of insert to make them fit properly.

Surprisingly, these shoes were a perfect fit and very, very comfortable! It is always a challenge to find a decent size 5 1/2, but you guys had just the right shoe for my occasion. Thank you!

I like the fact you can get half sizes and wider width shoes. My only complaint is that the shoes lacked support at the balls of the feet.

Brands I'd also recommend: None that I can think of at the moment.

I got two pairs of Fitzwell pumps the Wow and the Astro. They are the same size, but the Wow fits great, while the Astro was a size too small.

These are cute shoes. I have wide feet, and I ordered the 7½W, which feel comfortable enough so far. I was looking for medium (and not too high) heels. These shoes might fit the bill. I am going to wear them around the house to decide.

Haven't worn it yet for the duration. My initial impression is that comfort is okay. I have a wide foot and the 7.5W is wide enough for me.

These didn't fit right -- too tight in the width but slipped on the heel. They're a bit matronly looking. The Fitzwell captain pump is much cuter and fits better.

Ordered my regular size, same size as another pair of Fitzwell pumps I bought last year that fit snugly, but these were loose all around.

I love these shoes. I have looked everywhere I go at stores where I live and where I have traveled. I have not been successful until recently at Zappos in finding anything at all that is suitable and comfortable. Thanks, Zappos!

These shoes are very comfortable, it feels like I'm wearing a lower heel. I can walk blocks in them without thinking about my feet.

Comfortable stylish cute. True to size. I have bunions and painful food problems. I don't want my shoes to look like I am an old lady. These were perfect for a wedding I attended. I wore them the whole night.

They seem to run quite large - I am usually a solid 9.5 and had to return twice, going down to an 8.5. Super comfortable though!

I don't wear heels often. These shoes are so comfortable, fit great. The color is even prettier than in the picture! I love these shoes, if they came in hot pink, I'd order them!

Absolutely LOVE this shoe. The leather stretches to fit your foot in no time flat and feels true to size. Sometimes, patent is not so forgiving, but Fitzwell (my favorite brand!) has done it again. A wonderfully stylish shoe that is very very comfortable.

Great shoes. There's a nice little gel bubble where the heel rests. Love it. Bought these for work. Professional environment, comfort a plus. I read the reviews and opted for a half size smaller....big mistake. Had to return them for my normal size.

Got these to wear with a black dress to an evening wedding. Love the classic look, I think they'd also look nice with dark jeans rolled up! My boyfriend was so happy that I was comfortable running to the dance floor and no complaints about feet hurting at the end of the night. I will admit I ended up buying the 9W although I typically wear 9.5M in other shoes, but they were out of stock. the 9W was a little big for me, but still comfortable enough. I will probably put heel cushions to make them fit a little better.

Since surgery last year my extra wide feet have become wider (well, one of them anyway). This has made an already difficult situation even worse. I have ordered and returned several pairs of shoes because my left foot is just too wide. So when these came I was understandably nervous. Well, my worries were for nothing. They are the tiniest bit snug in the left foot, which means the width is true to size. I am so excited I think I'll try some others by this manufacturer.

Great basic aand classic career pump. I wear it at work. I have a wide foot, but a rather narrow heel. So I had to buy paddings at the shoe reapair that hold it in place and it works. This pump is comfortable with a nice medium heel. It did scuff a little too easy.

Stiff material digs into skin at heel and ankle area (Ouch!). Otherwise, they seemed fairly comfy and stylish.
