I love this boot! The color is just the right shade of burnt orange to add a pop of color. The top of the toe box is a little snug, so if you have a wider foot, it may be too tight.

One of the best pair of boots I have ever owned. Comfortable beyond belief! And super stylish. I got many compliments! As others have said, they do run small. I ordered a half size up and they are perfect. Love!

These are the equivalent of a 2" heel making them comfortable. You get the best of both worlds, looking sexy, tall, statuesque, and super comfortable. These give the illusion of having long lean legs with skinny jeans. I am super pleased. I bought them in Navy blue and Cognac.

Very cute...the idea is just about right...but they run small so even though I wear 7 1/2 8 - the 8 was too small.

I love this shoe! I did order 1/2 a size up based on other reviews and the fit is nearly perfect. I have a wide foot and it took a couple of wears to break the shoe in to not feel so tight. But after that, they feel great. They give good height without me feeling unstable. Even wore them out for a night of dancing. I get compliments every time I wear them.

from Lawrence, KS

I love the look of these boots, and they fit true to size. I am sending them back, however, because they lack the everyday wearability that I am looking for. The soles have no traction at all, and the heel of the sole is very narrow, making the shoe much less stable than it would otherwise be. I can't speak to how comfortable the shoes are because I haven't worn them for any period of time.

Charis M

from La Crescenta, CA

Cute! Followed previous advice and ordered a half size larger than I normally do. Heel height is comfortable due to platform inside. A little narrow at the toe on my larger foot but they adjusted to fit quickly. Suede is distressed a little at the toe so they are best with jeans and casual wear. Perfect for those longer jeans that need a heel.

This is a cute shoe but really does run a full half size small. I am between sizes so I ordered up and could barely get my foot into the shoe.

I love the look of these boots, but I could barely squeeze my feet into them! They are extremely tight! I knew instantly that I could not keep them. I could barely stand, let alone walk. I would have ordered a larger size, but there are no larger sizes when you are a 10. I am sad to have to return these beautiful foot binding devices.

They kind of rocked or something when I tried to walk in them. I've never experienced it before. They are cute enough, but they look quite inexpensive. I was pretty disappointed.

Regularly a size 7 7.5, I ordered an 8 per previous reviews: was a good fit. However, I have wide feet, and my toes were cramped and the shoes didn't look good from above looking down. Liked the orange color: more rust color in person than I imagined, even though they match the Zappos photos. They're fine shoes, but not sure they're worth more than this cost. Leather and cut is nice, but they aren't stable or comfortable enough for the price, IMO... not extremely flattering.

Very pretty boot but they definitely run small! My foot is fairly wide so I have to return them unfortunately. Recommend if you have a narrow foot, but I would also say go 1/2 size larger for length, too!

I love the sleek look of these, but they are just too uncomfortable. I considered keeping them and replacing the foot bed, but decided against it. As an alternative, the Toms Desert Wedge shoe is very similar and super comfortable. If you want the Phillipa, order 1/2 size down. As always, excellent service from Zappos.

I really like the way they looked but felt very tight and uncomfortable. The inside of the shoes feels "lumpy". It's hard to describe. It may have been an attempt at a good arch support, but failed. I normally love this brand and have some shoes by Dolce Vita.

These looked cute in the photo and they look cheap in real life. The flat ones I kept, much nicer. They were stiff, the wedge was badly made, super uncomfortable.

Possibly the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever owned! I have worn them twice and was in pain both times. They are very cute, but not worth the pain!
