Very comfortable right out of the box. I ordered an 8W. They are a bit loose in the heel, but overall great for summer at the office.

I never wear flats so this shoe is a wonderful option for a casual, summer heel option. They are very comfortable and the wedge provides lots of stability. I have small bunions and the toe box is ample and does not pinch. Great neutral goes with everything. The nude color although not an exact match for my skin is leg lengthening.

I loved the height and the comfy padding inside the shoe. I did not like the rounded toe box. It is too short and a bit uncomfortable. My toes felt squished. If I tried a wide width, they would have been too big all over. I am bummed because I thought I found exactly what I was looking for in an espadrille.

Cute and comfy! These wedges are comfortable for being so high. They're true to size. Look great with chambray trousers & a springy top. No rubbing or pinching & true to size. I sprayed them with a protective spray since they're cream.

I am usually size 8 to 8 1/2. The 8 1/2 fit very comfortably right out of the box so I am keeping them. I hope they do not stretch too much with wear. The insole is nicely padded but so are the sides which make them every more comfortable. I find this heel height to be perfect and stable for me. I will definitely spray a protective coating to help keep these clean- I ordered the beige color for summer wear. Overall very happy with quality at a very reasonable price.

I absolutely love these shoes. I ordered them in both the neutral shade and the black. They are the perfect height and extremely easy and comfortable to wear. I can't praise the courteous and professional treatment from Zappos. I am so impressed with the service I received from the company and I look forward to doing business with them in the future. GREAT SHOES and GREAT COMPANY!

After reading some of the reviews, I ordered this shoe a half size up. However, I ended up exchanging the shoe back for my usual size. Very comfortable, walkable, stylish shoe. Love! Probably going to purchase in more colors.

Love this shoe! It is by far my most comfortable shoe. Feels like I'm wearing high heels, but because of the wedge, they are as comfy as flats.

These shoes are super comfortable & cute. I did feel they ran a little large, had to size down 1/2 a size. Now they are perfect! Thank you Zappos!

These are great shoes. The fit is to size. I was not sure so I ordered half a size larger, which turned out to be too large.

Perfect wedges for spring/summer office attire. These aren't so high that they are hard to walk in, but they are high enough to make your legs look awesome. The neutral color means that I will be able to wear them with virtually anything in my closet. The sole is a little stiff, but it is a reasonably comfortable shoe. I was happy to find pretty wedges with a closed toe so I don't have to obsess about my pedi every day. I'm interning at an international media firm this summer and these wedges will be a fabulous investment.

They fit like a glove now! I ordered these shoes in the black. They are sexy/sassy for closed-toe summer shoes. I had to put gel insoles and gel heel guards in to get the perfect fit. The heel height is so comfortable to walk in. I love wedge heels and these did not disappoint! Fast shipping and the world's greatest place to shop! Thanks, guys!

Shoes are cute with just the right amount of wedge, but they do run a bit large. 99% of the time I'm an 8, but I needed some inserts to make sure these didn't slip off.

Loved the shoe but the size was too big. I think the next size down will be too small. Thank you!

I love the style of this shoe. I tried it in various sizes but unfortunately I was unable to keep any of them. All the heels were too wide and would slip off when I walked. I tried the size 8 first and it was way too big. The 7.5 fit well lengthwise but the heel was too wide and it would slip off when I walked. The 7 was too short and my toes hit the end as well as the heel slipping off when I walked. I'm sorry I couldn't keep any of them.

Great transitional shoe! My closet seems to have mostly boots or open-toed sandals. I was looking for a casual heel closed-toe shoe to bridge the gap. So comfy, heel height perfect and versatile. Just got the black about 10 minutes ago and have ordered the beige just now. Love them!

Very comfortable. The first time I wore the shoes all day, I got a little blister on my heel. No big deal. After that, no issues. They are a little more casual than I thought, and a little hard to keep clean but otherwise fit the bill.

Style - perfect. Exactly what I wanted and the toe wasn't too pointy, but wasn't too blunt. I had ordered several other wedges and found the toes to be very blunt, not as flattering, and I wasn't looking for a pointy shoe, but I would call the other toe points dull whereas this one was perfect. My toes were also covered completed. In the other shoes not only were the toes blunt, but the part covering my toes was too shallow and I don't like to see my toes in a shoe like this. These covered my toes completely. The contrast between the light cork heel and the black canvas top was great. A great summer wedge. They were comfortable too - nice padding underfoot. But, while I'm pretty much a 7, the 7s were too large at the heel and ankle. There was probably about a 2 mm space behind my ankles and the shoe would slip off as I walked. I was concerned it would only get worse as the shoes wore in. It was disappointing because style-wise these were exactly what I was looking for. Oh well. They're going back.

Love these shoes! Super comfortable, had to return because they run slightly large and slipped off my feet. Will re-order a half size smaller.

Loved these and thought they were so cute, but I wore them for a couple hours and developed blisters. Definitely need to be broken in. Probably not the best shoes for long work shifts.

These shoes are life changing! I have a hard time with shoes being loose on the heel and too tight across the top. I have short feet but they are a bit wide. I normally wear a 6. I bought the 6 in the W option and they are like a dream. I have never put on a shoe this cute that was comfortable right out for the box! I wish there were more colors. I will order one of each that is available.
