These are beautiful - and with just enough sparkle. I bought these (and the matching purse) for my son's wedding in July.

Pretty shoes. When you first put them on they seem like they will be comfortable but they are not. They are extremely uncomfortable. I still have blisters from wearing them once a month ago.

These shoes are absolutely beautiful to look at... BUT, they are THE MOST PAINFUL shoes I've ever owned in my life! And as I've always worn high heels for work and for special occasions, I think that I'm a fair judge. I'm not overweight (5'8", 141 lbs), so that's not the problem, and I have no corns or bunions on my feet, and have regular, professional pedicures. After having worn them and not even dancing! At my son's wedding, for just a couple of hours, I had such SEVERE, SHOOTING PAIN in all the bones in my feet that I had to take them off. I had, truly, never experienced anything like that before. At the end of the evening, I walked back to my car, down city streets, ugh! In my stocking feet, because I couldn't bear to put them back on. My feet hurt for another two days after the wedding, and I had blisters where the seam of the peeptoes cut across the side and top of my big toes, even though I had worn them with sandal foot panty hose, so there would be no friction between the shoe and my skin. Also, they were accurately sized in length (9.5), but, as I was walking from my car to the wedding site, I could NOT keep my heels from slipping out of them! My daughter, thank goodness, had extra heel cushions with her, and that was the only way I could keep from walking right out of the shoes... which would have been a disaster while being walked up the aisle to my seat -- and I do NOT have an abnormally narrow foot or heel (measured as a B width). I had worn them around my house a few times before the wedding, in order to "break them in," but I had worn them without stockings, explaining my not realizing that they would slip off my heel WITH stockings and was walking on carpet in my home. It wasn't until I wore them on concrete sidewalks and hard flooring that the pain started setting in. I wish I could send them back, because I'll never wear them again... so disappointed, because it really is a beautiful shoe, which is the ONLY reason for my giving it two stars.

I bought these shoes to go with the dress I bought for my son's wedding. Color was as described and match perfectly. But the best part is how comfortable they are, like slippers!

I take a 9.5M or 10M, depending upon the manufacturer and style, so I ordered both sizes. The 9.5 fit perfectly, lengthwise, but the toe box felt tight and painful, with the peep-toe seam cutting across the side and top of my big toe. There was also too much pressure on my little toe. (The 10's were slipping off my feet, and still hurt my toes). The material felt unyielding, and I thought there was no way that I'd be able to tolerate wearing them. I returned them, but I liked them so much that I thought I'd try ordering a second pair in the same size, in case it was a manufacturing defect -- and the second pair felt FINE! Perhaps the second pair I ordered had been tried on before and were already stretched a bit. My point is, try stretching them a bit, before you judge, because this is truly a beautiful shoe. I'm thrilled that I tried another pair before giving up on them, because they are gorgeous with my dress. (not much padding on the ball of the foot, which is why I only gave 4 stars).

I loved this shoe. Very comforatble for dancing, and not too high, but still darn sexy! I have the beginnings of bunions on both feet and this shoe disguised them beautifully and supported me well. They run a tad big. I tried on my usual size (7 1/2) in the store, but they were too big so I ordered a 6 1/2 and a 7 just to be sure. The 6 1/2 fit, but were a touch snug. So I went with the 7 and was very, very pleased. I dance for three hours in them and could have gone some more. Very comfortable, very stable, never felt like I was going to come out of them. Can't wait for the next wedding!

I must say, I have never bought anything on line before. But Zappos has been incredible with shipping things back and fourth exchanges of sizes and such. Fast credited to my Zappos credit card and always letting me know when they have received my returns. Always very pleasant when I have called on the phone, even though nowadays I do everything online.

These shoes are beautiful and perfectly match the dress that I am wearing to a couple of weddings this fall that I never thought I would match. They are so perfect that you would think they were dyed to match. Very stylish and comfortable, too.

These shoes are even more elegant than the picture. Would highly recommend. Were slightly tight around toes, but wore them around the house a few time before I needed them, and found them to be very comfortable.

Out of the seven pairs of shoes I've tried on to work with a dress I'll be wearing to a wedding, this worked the best and was comfortable to walk and stand in for a duration. Still looking but will keep this since it's the best one for comfort and match.

I'm going to a wedding and I rarely wear dresses and heels. I liked these online so I decided to order them. So glad I did! I love them! So cute, comfortable, and the fit is awesome. 7.5 fits me like a glove. They are a little higher than I would like but I'll deal with it!

I have these in both black and the bronze and they are wonderful. I wear them to weddings they are the perfect addition to any dress giving your feet just the right amount of sparkle. They are pretty comfortable compared to most heels...especially for fancy nights on the town or a wedding.

Love everything about this shoe but it was too big. Unfortunately I'm a size 5 and they don't come in a 4 or 4.5, otherwise I would've exchanged the pair for a smaller size.

I wanted to wear these with a long jersey gown, but the scratchy upper of the shoes was catching on the dress so I returned them. They would be fine with a short dress, or stiffer material. I usually wear 6.5B or 7N, would have had to wear 6B in these, with my toes slightly sticking out past the edge of the shoe.

Pretty shoe but runs big, and it's too uncomfortable to ball your toes up to keep the shoe from flapping on and off. I suggest you buy a size smaller.

Great shoe! Looks even better in person. The heel is at the perfect height; high enough to be stylish but low enough to be comfortable all night.

I was weary of 3" heels but these were pretty comfy. I wore them with a black dress to my husband's work Christmas party. They fit true to size. The rubbed on the outside of my foot below my pinkie toes but it wasn't too bad.

I was looking for a pair of tastefully sexy, elegant, black shoes for a fashion show affair and this pair was initially my back-up plan. Long story short, I ended up returning my first pick and kept this one. The tiny heels look unstable but actually are not bad at all; for someone who isn't adept in heels, I wore these shoes for at least 6 hours, including going up and down some uneven, concrete hills from and to the car. (Some sole pads from Dr. Scholls and slow walking help a lot.) The shoes' sparkles stay on and look terrific all night long, and this pair really looks much tougher than it looks (while maintaining that elegant feel). Yes, there are some minor blisters on the outside of my pinky toes at the end of night, but who cares? Job well done for shoes not originally meant for center stage. Highly recommend both the shoes and excellent customer service from Zappos.com. Life saver!

As will all Nina brand shoes I have purchased, this is a very comfortable shoe in spite of the heel height with just enough sparkle to dress up any dress. There is also a matching clutch with optional shoulder strap.

Wow, where to begin? These shoes magically appeared in just 24 hours and they're perfect! Will be wearing them with a tea length dress for my niece's wedding. My husband even said they're sexy. I love shopping before 1 PM and saving gas money and mall hassles. Zappos rocks!

I had high hopes for this one. I normally wear a 9-9.5, so I tried a 9. It feels like it fits well, but slips when walking. Also, my high arches don't touch the footbed, and it looks awkward from the side with a gap there.

This is absolutely beautiful. Stylish, elegant,glittering and tasteful. I'll enjoy wearing these at my daughter's wedding, and at other times, too, unlike some other styles I've been considering. The comfort level is 3-4 stars, but they're a dress shoe and feel fine so far.

I wear a size 10.5, so I tried these in a 10. I thought with the shape of the toe opening, an 11 might be way too big. Unfortunately, the 10 was slightly too small and made my toes stick out a little too much, so I am returning them. It's too bad though, because it's a great style and my boyfriend thought they were really sexy. I'm rating them a 3 because of the size problem... If they made a 10.5 I would give 5 stars!
