I'm usually a 9 and ordered the 9 Wide. The shoes were too long so I exchanged them for the 8.5 Wide. I received them in a day! These shoes are cute as can be, they look absolutely fabulous! However, COMFORT is my first priority and THESE SHOES FEEL GREAT! Lots of padding and support. Heel is sturdy and, combined w/the platform, they kind of feel like "Clog-Pumps". (PS I love clogs, but they don't fit the dress code at work.) I put a little heel pillow in them, cause they were just a tad loose, and now they are perfect and heavenly. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 for comfort is because they are still a heel. Barefoot is 5 stars for me!

These shoes felt wonderful and buttery-soft on the feet when I first got them. I wore them around my house for about 30 minutes without a problem. It was when I finally wore them out that they became an issue: after a while they became unbreathable and spots started to chafe. The just don't breath at all, and my feet got hotter, sweatier, and more swollen in them. I now have big divots of flesh missing out of the back of my heels, blisters on the bottom of my feet, and my big toes are bruised. I can't wear anything other than flipflops because it hurts to have anything touch my feet. I really wish I would have just gotten the Danskos!

I wanted something that looked cool with tights and skirts/dresses in the fall and winter and these are perfect! Kind of chunky, but that makes them cool. Wish the black suede were available in my size. I'd pick those up too. The heel is a nice height and I was able to walk around in these all day without breaking them in. The ball of my foot is spreading and I have a high instep. This shoe was still comfy for me. Also, the shape of the heel makes it very stable, so if you're not sure of your footing and need a fancy shoe, this will work for you.

from Up on a mesa in southeastern Utah. So, I loooove Zappos VIP!

Just bought these at a shoe store because they were out on Zappos, and ended up paying more. Rats! Kind of had to anyway. I am a true 8.5. But, with an injured right foot, I really had to try them on. Turned out, they run a little snug. I needed the 9. They are the most comfortable heels I've ever bought! They are so cool with jeans, cropped pants, skirts, anything!

I use these as my work shoes. I am a flight attendant. They are my "platform-style" comfy shoes. I could run in them they are so comfy. However, the mid portion is stiff. I keep hoping to break them in so they won't "clomp" while walking. Also, the heel is wide, I feel like I'm going to have to purchase heel liners to keep them from slipping off while walking. I usually wear 7 1/2, but ordered these 1/2 size smaller because of the rounded toe. Glad I did, the 7 1/2 would have been too big. I would recommend the to anyone, keeping in mind all comments from others.

By far one of the most supportive and comfortable pumps I have ever owned. Unfortunately they run really short, so must order up 1/2-1 full size otherwise they won't work, and you will have to return them. Wish they would make more colors!

I have been searching the longest time for shoes that are stylish, with a little bit of a heel, but super comfortable. I walk a lot at work and by the end of the day, my feet usually hurt, especially my baby toes. I finally found shoes that suit me! I normally wear a size 8M, but discovered I am a size 7½W (in these shoes, at least). The heels are really quiet when you walk, and the insoles are soft like pillows. If you are looking for basic pumps, with slight chunky heels, and that are super comfortable; I highly recommend these shoes.

Lovely! I am recovering from plantar fasciitis and these shoes provide lots of support without sacrificing classic good looks. The styling is simple and elegant, without being boring. The forefront is slightly platform, which makes the heel a little taller without your foot having to bend even more. The heel is nice and sturdy, but not too chunky. Great for work. I love them! I'm a huge fan of Earth shoes, but these are the first heels I've tried. I am not disappointed!

I bought these shoes to wear to work; I usually wear business suits. They are extremely comfortable and fit true to size. I can walk around the office all day in comfort. They are not the cutest shoes (the round toe looks a little matronly to me) but I do like the look of the heel and the slightly clunky feel brings a little youth to them I think. All-in-all I'm glad I bought them. They are simple enough to wear with lots of things and comfortable enough to wear for lots of activities. I would definitely recommend them if if your primary concern is comfort.

Zappos is the easiest way to buy shoes. It doesn't matter if you don't like them, you have no out of pocket for postage at all. These shoes are a dream and very hard to find, thank you Zappos!

Love these! These really make my feet feel great. As a teacher, I am on my feet all day and comfort is a must. I have been wearing Alegria shoes for the past two years and have been afraid to go back to heels because of the pain. Heel slips were necessary, but well worth the purchase. I will be buying these in more colors. Right shoe felt a little larger than the left, but that could be just me.

The style is perfect for the type of shoe required for my job. I looked everywhere for this style and only found it here. Even though the heel is 2 3/4" that 3/4" platform gives the heel a 2" feel, perfect for someone who really doesn't want to wear high heels. And, it's a thicker heel so it gives me a solid footing. After reading all the reviews about the shoe being too tight in the toe area, I decided to go ahead and order them anyway, keeping in mind the free return policy. Once they arrived, I tried them on and yes, they were tight. However, I just got out the Shoe Stretch spray and followed the directions. After that, they fit beautifully. I love them.

I'm debating whether or not to keep these. When I put them on with cotton booties, I felt some rubbing of the toes and tightness. Should trust my instincts - there's also some "slipping off" as I walk in them with the booties on. I'm somewhere between a narrow and medium width depending on the style of the shoe. I think someone else wrote a review that you could see the "splits" between the toes and I'm probably like them - have super-long toes, so the start of the toe box is just at the split of my toes. They're decent (comfortable) shoes, could be considered bulky, but still stylish. For the price they're probably worth it, but they can't compare to the unique style and craftsmanship of the Essex style which are more expensive (but I'm keeping them without hesitation). I definitely wouldn't wear these (size 10) with a skirt, but they're good with pants. Do I really need these? They'll make a good wet weather, winter wear shoe.

Love the look and the feel...so comfortable! The heel height is perfect and the shoe goes well with jeans, skirts, whatever! They seem like they'd be good walking shoes. I am exchanging for a 1/2 size up, however. I had recently tried on a pair of Earth shoes in another style and the 7 fit me perfectly. These in a 7 were too snug.

I am very happy with these Earth Tamarisk shoes. Usually I am a 6 1/2 W, but needed to go up to 7W in these due to the snug fore forefoot. After upsizing they are terrific. Really doesn't feel like a dressy platform heeled shoe - as comfortable and easy to wear as flats! Great cushioning and arch support!

This Earth Tamarisk dress shoe has gorgeous,soft leather,the best I have seen on a womens shoe. I was impressed by how comfortable they were, felt like running shoes but with a 2 inch heel. I wear a size 12 and I am over 6 feet tall so for me to say this about a dress shoe is unusual. Shoe runs a little wide, but this works for me. Outstanding quality and comfort! The style of the shoe was not what I was looking for, however, I am looking at some of their other styles.

I do love these shoes. The one issue I did have with them was the first time I wore them they were slipping off the back of my heels. I couldn't wear a smaller size, but these ended up to be a little too big. I bought heel pads and that solved the problem. They now stay in place and are very comfortable.

These shoes are comfortable for wearing all day, but a bit clunky...they are not flexible in the sole, so you have to get used to walking in them. They are more stylish than most "comfortable" pumps. I like this brand a lot in terms of comfort with some style. I tend to like a more funky/stylish shoe, but they are a good basic. Fit was perfect for me.

I ordered these in an 8 wide in brown and I wore them at home all day (on carpet) trying to decide whether to keep them. Pros: Good quality leather, nice color, right height for a work shoe, stable heel, basic style easy to match with slacks, jeans, possibly even a skirt. Some reviewers complained that the toe box is tight even in a wide width - but for me they are just right. Con: contrary to what some reviewers have mentioned about the top of the shoe being cut low and showing toe cleavage, I find it cut just a little too high and therefore oh-so-slightly uncomfortable (my toes are average length). While the length is just right for my size 8 foot, the heel definitely slips (though I do have a narrow heel). In the end, I attached some heel grips/ pads and that worked, so I decided to keep them, not so much because they are the cutest shoe, but because I really need a brown pump, the footbed is so nice and cushy, and I know that the style will work with lots of outfits. No regrets, I've worn them every day this week to work!

Bought for office wear with pants in both size 8 and 8 wide. The 8 wide would not stay on at all but my heel lifts still on the regular width 8's. The balance, overall comfort & style is so good I haven't decided whether to add a heel pad as others have done or return. The toe box is a bit snug & not sure how much it would stretch as I am new to the Earth brand. Will wear with liners or thin socks. Inside, the padding is cushy & supportive from heel to toe. Shoe is nicely made.

I really wanted these shoes! I thought they had a lot of style for a mid heel shoe. The leather was lovely quality, but the shoes were uncomfortable - even with stockings they rubbed at the heel and on the right shoe the toe box was too tight and rubbed the top of my toes - so I had to return them. I will definitely try this brand again.

These are the CUTEST ever shoes. I don't normally wear heels, but because of the chunky heel and platform, I gave them a try. They looked great, but...my toes were squished. I wanted to return for a wide, but it wasn't in stock. So, sadly, I had to return them.
