I just received these today. The shoes are comfortable and supportive...take it from someone with very sensitive feet! I was surprised to find that the insole has extra cushioning in the metatarsal area and then drops off so that toes (and my bunion) still have breathing room. Oh so nice! I wish other manufacturers would provide that. I can even wear these without my orthotics. The shoes are fashionable and such a nice break from the sneaker look that I've been trapped in lately (but the sneakers with orthotics do have their place). I may be 66 years old but I am not ready for grandma shoes! I bought the 8 1/2 M in grey (it's a medium warm grey that blends with many colors) and the leather is soft from the get-go. They don't slide off my heel even though the toe area is roomy because of the hidden elastic on top...very rare. There's also a little room for light socks, which I like. With nylons my foot slides around. So you might want to take that into consideration.

These are deceiving! They are not red! Instead they are a dark burnt orange, which fades into a blotchy very dark with lighter patches, and there is no shoe polish that color available to make it even. Very comfortable, and after wearing a few times the leather becomes very soft and does not hold its shape, so the toes look like a herd of elephants ran across your toes, and looks awful! After the first several times I wore them, they looked so awful, I can only wear them around the house. This is a lot to pay just to wear around the house!

Love, love, love these and several other Cobb. Hill styles. Attractive, comfortable and well made. Thinking about getting another color and did, but different color didn't fit the same, so had to return it.

I love this shoe. Unfortunately I have feet that are wide near the toes and narrow at the heel, so when I buy a shoe with room enough for my toes, the heel inevitably slips while I walk. With this Cobb Hill Paulette purchase, I started with a 7.5 W, my usual size, which felt great--soft sole, good arch support, room for my toes--but allowed too much heel motion. So I exchanged for size 7 W, which still felt good and reduced the heel sliding, though not entirely. I don't dare drop to size 6.5, as the heel to toe length is perfect in the 7. I'd rather pamper my toes than squeeze them in order to reduce heel slippage. I have tried those pads that stick to the heel area of shoes in order to reduce slippage and have found the pads to be irritating and prone to peeling off during use, so that remedy doesn't work for me. The Paulettes, while not a perfect match to my odd feet, are the closest I have found in recent years, and the most comfortable. And they look sharp, too. As always, Zappos' prompt shipping, exchange and return practices are the best. Thank you, Zappos!

I'm really happy with these shoes! They are even cuter than they look in the picture. They are super comfortable: great arch support, good cushioning. I wore them straight out of the box for a 14 hour work day. No breaking in, no problems with plantar fasciitis. Kudos to New Balance/ Cobb Hill for making such a high quality shoe. Excellent service from Zappos, as usual.

I like that the wide size was wide enough to be comfortable on my bunions. Also the uppers are soft and flexible. I didn't like the metatarsal pad in the insole, it hit me in the wrong spot and was uncomfortable for me.

Love these shoes! Right out of the box, they felt like they'd been made especially for my feet. Lots of room in the toe box and the heel area was narrow enough that my heels weren't slipping up and down. Cute styling, too. Will be looking at other Cobb Hill shoes in the future because my hard-to-fit puppies deserve the best! LOL

I really liked these shoes,but they were too long--a fingers-width in the heel between my foot, and the shoe rubbed against the side of my big toe where I develop calluses. I think if I try the smaller size, the toe box will be too small. I love Cobb Hill shoes and have several pairs, but I have bought anything from a 7 1/2W to a 9W and in most other brands I wear a 9 W.

After reading other reviews I went ahead and ordered this shoe. I have bunions, so need a wide, comfortable shoe -- but my heels are actually quite narrow. This shoe fits well, does not hurt my bunions, and is not terrible on the heel. Support feels adequate. It pairs wells with slacks for work, but also meets my requirement for my walking/standing needs. Should also go well with dresses. I have an extremely hard time finding shoes that both fit my feet and look nice - this one fits the bill. (Review based on a 6.5 wide shoe.)

These are wonderful shoes but I had the knob fall off of one after six months of light use. This company was nice to send me out new knobs. However I am unable to enjoy the shoes anymore because for the life of me I cannot get anyone to install and replace the knob. This reminds me of the company The North Face, I once had a boot issue with a part falling off and instead of fixing the boot for me they graciously replaced the set for me. Phenomenal service! With these shoes I absolutely love them but I cannot love them anymore because no one will fix them for me. So I am very disappointed and saddened.

This shoe is very comfortable right out of the box. I wear narrow shoes and had trouble finding walking shoes that are comfortable and don't look like sneakers. These fit the bill, look good with jeans, slacks and very supportive. The toe area is wide enough to accommodate thin socks. Only negative is they slipped a little on my heel, but simple heel pads helped.

I agree with so many others who wrote reviews. I got the grey shoes. They do look a little distressed. They are very comfortable, but run slightly large, so I will put heel huggers in to make them fit perfectly. They look great with jeans or a casual dress. I will be wearing them a lot this fall and winter. This is the first time I have tried this brand. I would like to try more of their shoes.

Super comfortable, especially the smooth fabric at the heel. These shoes run wide, though. This was perfect for me but if your foot is on the narrow side, you'll swim in them. Excellent toe box room without being a bump toe like so many. Great with slacks and jeans. I really like the gray color, too.

These are very comfortable, with a soft footbed and leather uppers that hold their shape without being stiff. Right at the ankle, where shoes can often rub and cause blisters, these shoes have a soft piece of foam-type flexible material. It blends right in - doesn't stand out or look like elastic.

These are so comfortable straight out of the box and great for walking and standing. They are roomy in the toes, too. They are really easy on and off, but they do not fall off your feet while walking, or running. I get compliments on my "cute shoes" all the time. They do look a little odd with skirts, but they are fantastic with jeans and slacks. They are nicer than trainers but still casual. I am on my second pair of this style and color. I own four different styles of Cobb Hill shoes and boots and have only been disappointed with one - loafers that fit too tightly across the widest part of my foot. That was easily fixed, but they were the only Cobb Hills that I have ever had to break in before wearing. Even the boots fit perfectly out of the box and were comfortable all day long while standing and walking. I love this company! I love these shoes!

I love these shoes! Have worn them almost non-stop since the day they arrived. My orthotics fit perfectly in my normal shoe size 8.5 wide. I am so happy because I have such a hard time finding shoes that work with my problem feet. However, my highest recommendation goes to Zappos. They are a truly customer-oriented, user-friendly company and I love doing business with them.

This is the best looking and most comfortable pair of shoes I have found in years. I order a wide, but the shoe does not look wide on the foot. Very nice looking. Well worth it.

I have loved these shoes, especially the fit and comfort, but they are less than a year old and are looking very dumpy. The leather on the toe is all wrinkled. The leather also stains very easily and doesn't seem to respond well to cleaning or polishing. I am not hard on shoes, so I wonder about this.

I am very happy with these shoes. I need arch support and these fit the bill. Overall comfortable and I think that they are nice looking for work and general use. I am sad that my former go-to brand Romika seems to have stopped adding awesome arch support to their shoes, so these are my new favorites!
