I used to have a wide foot (8.5 W), but since my pregnancy my foot has gotten shorter and wider (8 WW). I also have a slight bunion but it isn't a bad one. I have struggled for many months to find a basic black pump that doesn't squeeze and pinch my foot. I do a lot of walking and standing in my job, and I refuse to wear shoes that hurt or mutilate my feet. I also refuse to wear shoes that look orthotic or like they belong on a grandmother (I'm 30 and I like to consider myself as relatively stylish). At last, I have found a pump that fits and looks good. My husband joked that Zappos should fire me as a customer because I ordered and returned like 10 pairs of pumps (Seriously. It was a lot of trips to UPS.) looking for a black pump that fit. I wish I'd tried the LifeStride Parigi a long time ago, but I didn't think that the shoe in the photo was stylish enough or the brand cool enough. However, in person this is a very pretty, classic shoe. Like another customer mentioned, it makes you feel like Kate Middleton. It isn't trendy, but it isn't dowdy. I think it's the perfect all around pump, the kind that every woman should have in her closet. It's not like walking on a cloud, but it's not uncomfortable. I'll be ordering it in another color.

The toe box of this shoe is very short and cut right across my bunions. Ouch (and not a good look)! Thank you, Zappos for making it so easy to find the perfect pair of shoes!

In my quest for the perfect nude pump, I tried five different brands: LifeStyle Parigi, Naturalizer Michelle, Rockport Seven to 7 Low Pump, Bandolino Lantana, and Chinese Laundry Palace. LifeStyle was the winner, with Naturalizer a close second and Rockport in third place. I wear 8.5 medium in just about every brand of shoes. LifeStride Parigi: The first time I tried this on, I actually said Wow! out loud. I didn t expect a pump to be so comfortable. I thought I wanted a little higher heel, but after wearing these to teach all day I m glad I went with a lower heel. I found these true to size and width with a creamy nude color that has the slightest hint of pink. Great choice, and the winner of my comparison. 5 stars. Naturalizer Michelle: I love the color on these it s a little more tan whereas LifeStride and Rockport are creamier/paler in color. They also look very professional with a slightly higher heel and a little bit of a platform. These Naturalizers were very comfortable, but slipped off my heel and squeaked as I walked. 4 stars. Rockport Seven to 7 Low Pump: Looks similar to the LifeStride and comfort is pretty good. Unfortunately, it slipped off my heel too much and didn t fit as snugly as the LifeStride, so they won t work for me. 4 stars. Bandolino Lantana: A small toe box, too-tight grip around the heel, and a slightly lower cut at the toe area turned me off of these. They are a little more gray in color, but still attractive with a 3 heel. 2 stars. Chinese Laundry Palace: No doubt about it, these shoes look sexy. But the toe box was too small and my foot kept slipping forward. I had trouble with the stiletto heel and prefer a more solid heel for comfort while walking and standing. 2 stars.

I have NEVER worn heels. I was going to a black tie event so I figured I should try them. There was a TON of cushion in the toe. I walked a lot in these shoes and only at the very end of the night did they start to hurt (which says I shouldn't have done laps around the event). There was ZERO rubbing on any part of my feet. If you want or need to wear heels, these were fantastic!

I have been looking for the perfect taupe high heels and I finally found it! I am extremely picky when it comes to a good size heel and support. I wore the shoes for the first time today to work and my feet don't even hurt. You know that's saying something about the great quality!

Absolutely the most comfortable heel I've ever worn. Fits my slightly wide feet perfectly and doesn't pinch anywhere. The shorter heel is super practical and perfect for all day wear, but I'd love a higher heel too.

These are a great pair of pumps, especially for those with wide feet. It is the first pair that I feel I can actually wear for more than a few hours. I purchased the WW. It's the first time I have ever been able to purchase extra wide so I did have to drop down a half a size.

These were the perfect shoes! I bought four pairs, hoping to find something that worked. This one clicked! I normally wear a size 7½ but the toe box felt tight. So I ordered an 8, and they are perfect. I am fair skinned, and these ended up being just the right color for my skin tone. They are comfortable, reasonably priced, and my new favorites!

Okay, I know everyone is different. But for me personally, this is the only pair of shoes (heels, flats, sandals, boots, anything) I have ever owned that has never given me a blister or sore spot. I have worn these all day long several times and been amazed at how good my feet felt. I even have other Lifestride shoes that I have not found to be as comfortable as these are. I have them in three colors and am tempted to buy more. Hey, when the shoe fits.

These shoes are so comfortable! I wear black heels as a staple for work, and I was so surprised when I tried these on. My feet teeter on the brink of being wide vs. normal, but these shoes are very comfortable and fit perfectly. Very cushy sole and they feel very supportive. And for a comfortable shoe they are not frumpy whatsoever - very stylish. I'll definitely be buying more in several colors!

These are beautiful shoes! I also tried the Anne Klein Isana, which I loved the look of (love the pointier toe on that shoe), but the overall shoe just was not wide enough, so I went with these instead. The Parigi fits perfectly right out of the box. I wear a 6 in sneakers and got this shoe in the 6W and it fit well. These definitely fit me true to size. (I possibly could have even gotten a 6WW, but these shoes will only be used for special occasions, not everyday wear, so I think the ones that I have kept will work great.) These shoes are a beautiful neutral color with a nice shine. Very stable and comfortable without looking old or dowdy.

I found these shoes at a Famous Footwear store in nude and purchased them because they are a great basic heel. I like that the heel is less than 3" so I wore these literally all night at a wedding (think 6:00 PM to 5:00 AM) and never took them off. I rarely wear heels so my feet were a little sore towards the end of the night but that is pretty amazing for a pair of heels, right? Now I am at Zappos to get them in black. These heels are definitely a style that I hope LifeStride will keep around for a while!

This is the perfect nude pump every woman should have in her shoe wardrobe. The heel height is sexy but not too high. The footbed is comfortable and the rounded toe is just classic. Right out of the box I wore them for hours and they were fabulous. I have a small bunion on my right foot and this pump is cut high enough to miss any painful spots. Even though I tend to have a narrow heel these did not slip at all. I wear them with everything from dresses to jeans and they look great.

The fit is perfect. I have not worn these to go out yet...weather has not been cooperating. They feel comfortable just for the short time I wore them. The upside for these pumps is they cover all of my toes which are quite long.

I have been searching for a basic pump with non chunky heels in extra wide width for a long time. These fit the bill, were comfortable and looked good. I was so pleased with them when they arrived, I immediately purchased a second pair in another color.

I really liked these shoes, but for the fact that I normally wear an 8.5 and that was too small. The only reason I chose to get a pair of shoes from another brand is that I wasn't super fond of the taupe color in person. It is well represented here on Zappos, but I thought I'd like it more than I did.

They seemed like nice shoes, but were tight. I should have ordered a 9 W instead of an 8 1/2 W. I choose another style for my daughter's wedding.

Bought 2 pair in size 8WW, one pair nude imitation "patent leather" (shiny) and one pair navy imitation "kid leather" (not shiny) The nude heels fit OK, but the navy pair a lot too long - even with a heel "filler" wouldn't work. Re-ordered the navy in half-size smaller and they seem fine. Both pair are snug on me, not "all day" shoes for me - but can break them in (hint: warm with hair dryer, then wear all day with thick socks.

I feel like I need to update my review...I was the one who loved this shoe in black kid in 8 WW. The black fake leather scuffed up after one wear. Also, the taupe glory did not fit at all the same way.

Review for Zappos Rewards Points
(What's this?)

This shoe is MUCH prettier in person, very flattering to the foot, classy, & not dowdy as the photos might suggest. NOW FOR THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE: this is the most comfortable high heel shoe I've ever worn in my life. I searched & searched for a pump that would leave my feet feeling as good at the end of the day as they did when I got out of bed in the morning, and the Parigi Is It. I bought the 8.5 W, got rid of all my other pumps after the first day of wearing the Parigi all day (I had several "designer" pumps at $200 to $300+ dollars per pair--never again!), and I now have this shoe in: black patent, black kid, navy kid, red patent, taupe patent, and white kid. I constantly check Zappos & other websites for burgundy kid and grey suede, and will snap them up if they ever come out with them. Other sites carry several other colors, fabrics, & finishes such as croc, snake, etc.--I'm considering getting this shoe in grey snake. For me, this is the perfect pump at any price!

Absolutely love it. I don't typically wear heels so I wanted something with a low profile and one that I could wear all day without needing knee surgery. This fits the bill. The cushioned insole provides great arch support and the rubberized heel/sole keep it very quiet. Great shoe as always from Lifestride. And Zappos shipping and service is outstanding as always!

Another reviewer commented that she didn't like how they looked in the picture. I agree. At first glance, I thought they would look too much like the belonged in my mother's closet and not mine. However, I'm not usually a big fan of heels, but I'm attending a wedding in August so these were a must. And I love these shoes! Another reviewer said feel like Kate Middleton and I agree. Love these shoes!

These heels really are surprisingly comfortable. I danced in them for hours at a wedding and still could walk at the end of the night. They can be worn at the office or a formal setting. They are a good buy.

I wanted a neutral, dressy, flattering shoe for a job interview, but it also had to be comfortable enough to walk and stand in for the better part of the day without hobbling myself. These are perfect. I wouldn't want to wear them to teach in or to stand at work all day, but for looking your best for occasional professional events, these can't be beat for the price.
