I ordered these for my mother in law who is 87 years old. She loved them and said they were very comfortable. She is going to be wearing them under a gown for my daughters wedding.

These shoes are beautiful even on a long foot. The style is classy and Euro looking. Alas, I have a toe that sorta knuckles up and it's hard to find a toe box to accommodate it, so I'll be sending these back. For younger feet these would be awesome. The toe box is wide, it's the depth that didn't work for me. as always, I got these shoes right away and return is easy. That's why I shop at Zappos.

Adorable shoe but surprisingly small in my usual size and you don't have the next size up. So sad to return these.

LOVE These! They were perfectly true to size for my 9.5 feet. My feet are a bit wide and there is plenty of room. They are very stable (no wobbling) and quite comfortable to walk in. I think they are cuter than the photo. And the way they are cut happens to be VERY flattering for larger feet. They make my feet look deceptively dainty. I actually bought these for dancing and think that these will be my best dance shoes yet. My only complaint is that the shoe is cut a bit high around the outside of the ankle. And the leather hits the underside of my ankle bone in a slightly annoying way. But I am keeping them because it will be an easy fix. All I will have to do is add a heel pad, or arch support insert and it will raise my foot a slight amount: just enough to clear the problem. Fortunately, this shoe is roomy enough to add any inserts. Happy! They will be perfect for my low-heeled dancing needs. I can foresee buying the red very, very soon.....

I love these shoes! And I love Zappos. The selection is amazing and I love the free delivery so that I can order and try on until I find just the right pair. I actually kept four pair after numerous deliveries to find the right fit and style. Keep it up Zappos!

Super cute on. But the vertical seam on the heal actually sliced my heel. I put a petal pad over the seam. But now the shoe was too short. Better buy a half size longer and some petals if you can't resist this shoe!

This shoe looks and feels great, but it has a plastic heel that is very slippery. An otherwise excellent walking shoe makes walking very difficult if it is at all wet. I would need them re-heeled in rubber to be walkable, which would not be cheap since these are large heels. Disappointing quality for an expensive shoe. Had to return them.

It was heartbreaking to have to send these shoes back. They were so cute and comfortable even with my bunion and high arches. Unfortunately, the size 10 was too small, the 11 was too big and they do not make a 10½.

First off, I have flat wide feet, my pinky toe has a bunion on top (probably from not wearing the right size shoe for most of my life, or heredity) and kind of long toes. I love these shoes, the support feels great, but the toe box is just a little short for me. I had tried the Urge and it was the same problem. They are cute shoes and my family liked them as well. Too bad for me!

This is a cute shoe. I wanted something a little nicer than your run of the mill Mary Jane, with a bit of a heel, but not too much of one. However, it is not a walking shoe. It is not cushioned, and was overall not as comfortable as I would have liked. It is pretty enough that I chose to keep it.

Very comfortable! I have slightly wide feet at the toes and it's hard to find heels that don't pinch. I've been wearing these to work all day and love them. The pewter is a fantastic neutral that goes with everything. I'm a new fan of Taos shoes.

Had to exchange these due to a small flaw. Zappos makes online shopping as it should be - EASY. Have gotten many compliments on these shoes. Love them! I don't have to wear orthodics with them!

Feminine low-heeled shoe of soft leather. True to the name, Samba, this shoe is great for dancing. Shoe provides enough support without orthotics for my flat feet. I almost always wear a 10B. Length is true to size but toe box is 1/8 - 1/4" narrower than usual B width. Will stretch a bit with wear or shoe tree.

Lovely shoe! I ordered these and the Taos URGE in Cognac. The Urge won out over this one in style and color was better for my needs. Taos footwear sure does know how to construct a great shoe that is comfy and feminine and stylish! Worth every penny. Check out their similar style, Urge. I find it more up to date with the wedge heel and just seemed a bit sexier. Great with jeans, skinnies, skirts and some dresses. Both are built to last too. Wish my budget could justify keeping kept both. ;)

These shoes are so beautiful! At first I wasn't sure about the fit -- they seemed a little long a narrow for my foot, which is pretty wide. Usually wear 8.5 and tried this one in both 8.5 and 8. I am keeping the 8.5. After wearing them around the house a while, they've started to feel more comfy, and wearing them outside now I think I've made the right choice to keep them. The leather is good quality and will break in nicely, the heel height is just right for a touch of class without feeling significantly taller (I am 6' so that's an issue for me), and the details and of course the color are just gorgeous. Great for dressing up or down.

Love this shoe! The Pewter color is beautiful - it has a lovely gleam. I have ordered and sent back so many shoes - searching for a shoe with at least a small heel. This shoe is comfortable and dressy. Very good support. I wish more people would try this shoe.

Oh how very sad... These are the most beautiful shoes! But I cannot wear them. I ordered 8½ and found them too long, lots of room in the heel. So I ordered 8, which are right in length but too tight in the toe box. I was tempted to bring them to a place to get them stretched but then if they are still not comfortable I would be stuck with them. There is just something not right about the fit. I have wide feet, so maybe for a narrow-footed person these would work. I am so sad because I absolutely love the style, the dark red color, and the heel height is perfect, just enough for a little touch of class without adding much height. They are heading back.
