Let me just say that I HATE heels! I avoid them at all costs. But every girl has that special occasion that dictates the sacrifice of the feet from time to time. I needed a decent pair of black heels so my journey began. Would I love to be able to wear those 4 inch stilettos that scream sexy? Of course I would but those days are a few decades behind me. Now it's time to be a little more practical with my shoe choices. I ordered six different black pumps, all different makes and models because I need to try them on back to back for a true comparison and hate shopping at department stores as much as a root canal. I actually saved these for last because I had just purchased a pair of Clark's (different style) and I was disappointed with their fit. Not so these shoes. I put them on and cannot express how wonderful they feel! I have never had a pair of heels fit so perfectly. No longer will I dread those occasions that call for a dressier look, I will embrace them!

I'm in the Military and the "Black Leather" is PERFECT for service dress uniform. These are much more comfortable and stylish than the pumps sold at the clothing sales on-base yet still within regulation because of its conservative style. I love it!!

Super comfortable shoe, perfect for professionals who need to dress up and be able to walk at job. I work in a hospital and am able to walk fairly well in these shoes. I bought the nude color in 8 (my size), it felt slightly big at the end. So I went to Clarkes outlet and tried 7.5, which was too tight. Therefore, I am staying with size 8. Also ordered a black in this color.

This very well may be my first product review ever. These shoes have motivated me to write. These shoes are the perfect marriage of style and comfort. I wore them right out of the box for 12 hours straight, with no discomfort or hot spots. They look fantastic, are a true nude color and the wood grain on the heel is lovely stylish detail. Received many compliments on these. Worth every penny.

After trying on five pairs of shoes for an interview, these were the only ones that were both very comfortable right out of the box and also stylish. They were the only pair that had enough room in the toe box and didn't slip off in the heel. The other four are going back (love Zappos service), and these are the keepers.

I have a standing desk and was looking for a shoe that would look professional and also be comfortable enough for standing several hours at a time. This shoe meets most of my needs. For a "comfort" shoe, it is stylish. It is comfortable but doesn't have as much arch support as I would have hoped.

I have long avoided wearing heels (I never found them remotely comfortable), but recently I found myself in need of a pair. After trying on about 20 different pairs, I was thrilled to find these. They do not feel as high as they are, they have a lot of padding in the sole and heel cup, and they are well-made. They gave me a blister on my pinky toe the first time I wore them, but the leather stretched enough to be much more comfortable by the fourth or fifth wear. Adding a padded insert for the ball of the foot area made them even comfier. I wear them around the office once or twice a week with no discomfort. For a committed anti-heel girl, that is a big compliment.

I am a loyal Clark buyer. These nude pumps did not disappoint. The toe box is roomy and the way they slightly scooped across the front makes them very comfortable and very pretty on the feet. The detail of the wooden stacked heel is a wonderful touch to the shoe. They are very stable heels to walk in. I was in need of the perfect nude pumps and I found them! You could dress these up or down, they are a perfect compliment to any outfit. The leather is very soft, so I plan to use a spray from Clarks to help to resist stains and water to keep them looking their best. I always try other brands to try to save money, but always end up back to this brand, they are well worth the money you spend. The comfort of the Clarks brand is second to non when it comes to dressier shoes.

Brands I'd also recommend: Naturalizer, Aerosols.

These are THE most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. They are really cute too and the perfect nude color. I purchased and exchanged 5 pairs of nude shoes before I finally found the perfect pair. If you are looking for the perfect nude pump, this is THE ONE.

This is the most comfortable 3" pump I have ever worn. The footbed is either real or synthetic suede, and I love it. I have always worn stockings with my heels, but now they make me feel old (or older, at 61 I am already old!) I am going to be looking for more Clarks shoes with the same footbed immediately!

These pumps are cute and the heel is a good height not too short, not too tall. I cannot remember the last time I tried on a pair of pumps that that fit snug enough that my heel didn't slip out. These shoes do NOT slip off my feet. After reading other reviews I did order 7 vs. my usual 7.5 and they fit fine.

Good shoe but I wouldn't wear it 8 hours straight on a concrete floor. I question previous posters who named as a good all day work shoe, I only wore it for a few hours and my feet were tired. also, you will need trouser socks or at least a toe sock or it will give you blisters, it doesn't have much padding or arch support but I slipped in a Dr Sholls dress shoe insert and with a knitted toe sock, it does just fine, better than most heels, for a few hours. But it's certainly not a sneaker. Bonus: it's leather and it feels buttery to the touch and the heel is nice and thick but not so thick you look geriatric. this is a moderately comfortable shoe with a moderately fashionable look at a modest price. but then that's what you were looking for, wasn't it? and in case you were wondering, I kept them.

I have had an up and down relationship with these shoes. At first I loved them and was thrilled when trying them on out of the box. Then, I wore them at a conference and was in agony. Loving their appearance, however, I decided to persevere and tried putting inserts in the ball of the foot. That did the trick and I was once again in love with them!

So bummed! After reading the reviews I thought this would be a great fit. Did not feel wide at all and size 11 always fits me but not this time. Nice looking. Will try one size up.

I cannot say enough good things about these shoes. Literally, the moment I slipped one on my foot I knew it was what I had been searching for. The perfect pump. The leather is like butter. The cushioning is sublime. Toe: not too pointy to look severe, but not too rounded that they look casual. The heel: high enough to lengthen the leg, but low enough to be comfortable through a 10-hour workday. I would buy these shoes in as many colors as were available. Alas, they only come in black...

The style is great on this shoe. I believe this is true to width but could be a little tight in the toe box although not enough to order a wider size because you would probably walk out of the shoe while wearing it. I think the one foot will stretch a bit. the leather quality is good and the shoe is well balanced on the heel.

I love these. I have ordered them twice - once last year and then again this year. I am a bit clumsy and struggle with heels. I want to look professional but be confident while I walk. I also live in a large city where I have to run out for a lunch meeting and walk three city blocks. These shoes are perfect for this!

Love these shoes! Great neutral color goes with everything! They are comfortable, even for a heel! I cleared my closet of everything over 3" because I got tired of my feet hurting, these will be perfect! I ordered the black as well, wish they came in patent. I usually wear an 8 in Clarks, ordered these in 8W, they are extremely comfortable!

Like slippers right out of the box! This is my second pair of these. They offer all around classic utility for a variety of occasions, and are comfortable enough to wear all day.

Heels always hurt my feet, but I needed a more professional look for work. Wow! The Tempt Appeal was comfortable right out of the box, and the first day I wore them for 9 hours with no sore feet! Love this shoe and would highly recommend it to anyone needing a super comfortable heel.

Be sure to order a half to a full size down! Other than the length, these shoes are great. I normally wear an 8½W, and this 8W felt great but was just too long. I ordered them along with the Rockport Seven to 7 High, and I just liked the heel height better on those, so I did not bother getting the 7½W of this Clarks shoe (which I am sure would have fit beautifully). If you're looking for something super comfortable and classy for the office, these Tempt Appeals are the shoes for you. If you want something can also be worn with skinny jeans for a fun night out, the style of this pump may not quite be ideal. I returned these in favor of the Rockports based on style, but I can guarantee that these shoes would have been more comfortable overall.
