My feet are angry with me for even trying these on. They run small, are very stiff, and the longer, pointed toe feels awkward which add to the discomfort. Thanks, Zappos, for letting me try them without penalty, but these are going back right away!

These are super comfortable and professional shoes. I purchased these for my daughter who wears size 11. She is mid 20's and fashion forward, but needed conservative shoes for business suits. She has commented that these were the best fitting work shoes that she has ever worn! We feel that these are wonderful shoes, especially in this price range.

Based on prior reviews, I ordered 1/2 size larger.. - I wore these to dinner for the first time w/o any problem. The second time I wore them for 14 hours and was surprised that my feet weren't killing me. But by the 3rd day of wearing them so much, I did feel my toes were being a bit tight - but they didn't hurt. I think the shoes are awesome and like the color. One tip - you do have to pull the shoe off with your hand as they are snug tho not tight - which is good as my foot doesn't slip out of the heel when walking.

I bought the teal and it is truly one of the most beautiful shoes in my collection. I am a 10 M and these feel great, with a modest heel that look classy and stylish with my pencil skirts. I am planning to buy another color soon.

Really cute shoes, very comfortable for all-day wear. The mock-croc isn't very convincing, but I love the fit and look of the shoes.

As a professional, I was looking for a loafer-style heel. Had wanted something darker, but figured I'd give this shoe a shot. Suddenly, it's my 'go to' shoe. Works with both trousers and skirts. Comfortable & attractive to wear all day, but I can easily do a grocery run after work, too.

Beautiful shoe, love the color. I have wider, longer feet. I am so sad I cannot keep them. I would have worn them with everything.

Really like these shoes! They look fantastic, are easy to walk in and just seem 'classy' for work :) only thing is you do have to work them in a bit in the beginning, just like any shoe I guess. Wear them around your house for a couple hours before you need to 'actually' wear them somewhere. Otherwise, great shoe!

Ordered this shoe on a Saturday night and they were at my door in less than 48 hours! Very comfortable right out of the box for an 8+ hour work day. Great shoes.

I have a very personal relationship with my UPS guy! Love return policy at Zappos. Same old shoe story as everyone else. Except every once in awhile I get lucky. These shoes are classic in design, the stacked heel is very stabilizing, but not orthopedic looking. The toe box, although a little pointed, is wide enough across the top. I wear a 7.5 - 8 M depending on designer. I bought this one in an 8 which gave me a lot of room in the toe. Heel is narrow enough to stay put. I generally have to put an insert under the ball to push my foot back into the heel, but it works great on these shoes. Even without the insert, the ball of the foot area is cushioned. I bought the gray fabric, really pretty. I am buying another pair today in black and, maybe, the turquoise. Perfect office shoe!

I am 5 ft 10 inches without heels, and this kitten heel is perfect, the shoe is great, I bought them in 2012, and just ordered a second pair today to put 'aside'. This is easily my favorite shoe in my closet, and so comfortable and classy looking!

I purchased the taupe-croc. The shoe is comfortable and fits very well. I was able to wear them for about 6-hours right out of the box without experiencing sore or tired feet. The shoe has a very classy and smart look about it. I received several compliments.

This is a great shoe and brand for problematic feet when you are seeking some style. Heel is durably stacked, low enough for comfort yet still gives some height. This color (cream) elongates a lighter color pant summer.

The shoe is beautiful and surprisingly comfortable for a pointed toe style. The heel height is perfect for me, as I am elder.

This is a very attractive shoe, but for some reason it's a bit conservative a look for me and so these will be going back. However, I will keep Joan & David in mind for the future given the quality and fit.

I usually wear an 8 Medium with no real foot issues. This shoe was very well made and beautiful. I wish it fit but the size 8M I ordered was tight on the heel and in the toe box the moment I put it on. Drats - back to the drawing board! Shopping for another pair. Love the quality of Joan and David, the details and the leather were fantastic.

Positives, they look very pretty on my feet and I find them a sophisticated addition to my wardrobe. The sizing is also accurate; the shoes were relatively comfortable immediately on wearing. Negatives, the patent leather, pretty as it is, is not flexible, and that, combined with the relatively pointy toe box, causes some pinching initially and eventually, pain to the toes most displaced in the the shoe. I assume that if the material were suede or a soft leather, this issue is a "breaking in" type of problem that will ameliorate relatively quickly. But, since the material is patent leather; stiff and less giving (like my husband), the pain no doubt will persist until my toes have their way with the leather. Until then, blisters and Band-aids.

I am very happy with this shoe. I often having a hard time finding professional looking shoes that both stylish and comfortable. (I often end up in Dansko type shoes.) This one fits the bill. I have one pinky toe that has a corn and the wrong shoe really makes it hurt. These did not. They felt just a tad tight at first in the toe area, but any bigger would have been too big. No sore feet - even after the first full day of wear.

I am really pleased with this shoe. Very professional looking and pretty comfortable, right from the start. The leather isn't "real" but it is a sturdy shoe. Great heel height for work!

I got these in size 8.5 and 9. They looked huge because of the very pointy toes. If you have small feet, I think they would be really cute.

Nice look for work and great heel height, but the shoes rub on the inside and outside of both heels. I use moleskin now every time I put them on. Disappointed by that as this is my first pair of Circa Joan & David shoes and they had been highly recommended. Will probably not buy another pair.

I am a bit hard to fit, with a tiny heel. This heel rose too high and scraped. In addition, the point was so long that, with small feet, the shoe flapped as if it were a clown shoe..despite a reasonably good fit in the toe box. If one were a size 8 foot, this might not matter. I'm a 5-5.5 size. Too bad. Hard for a professional woman with small feet to find appropriate shoes.

Great looking shoes but they gave me very painful blisters the first and second time I wore them. Very stiff, cheap leather. Had to return them.
