These are without doubt the most comfortable and prettiest heels I have ever worn. I am not much of a 'heels' person since my feet are huge, I'm tall, and I like being comfortable. But I needed to ramp up an outfit for a job interview so I tried these out. Amazing. They are flattering and lovely, super comfy, and quite stable & easy to walk in. 9 1/2 wide is true to fit and I am so glad I found these shoes. Very highly recommended. Wish me luck in my interview - I know my feet won't be hurting!

There is no way the width of this shoe is true to size. The WW is closer to a "C" width. It seems like it would be very comfortable if the width was as described. I returned my regular size and tried a half size bigger and the width was good, but the size was too big.

Absolutely beautiful shoe! I decided to return it because it didn't quite fit through the arch and made a funny noise when walking. I have a odd foot to fit so I don't think it was the shoe. Disappointed it didn't work out.

Amazingly comfortable, and very cute in a 1930s kind of way. I love the suede top and patent heel & platform. These look even better in person. I only wish the heel were a little higher so they would look nicer with a skirt. But the comfort! The suede is very soft with a lot of "give" that is very forgiving for my relatively wide feet and one bunion. Very comfortable, and they make my duck-like feet look much daintier.

Great pumps for work. So comfortable. The small platform lessens the heel height which is perfect for hallux rigidus. Really pretty, soft leather that does stretch after wearing them a bit, so I added a couple of heel pads to keep them on.

Beautiful, comfortable shoe. I don't wear heels often, and rarely spend this much for a pair of shoes, but wanted a classic style to have for years. These pair well with pants and skirts. Only gave 4 stars for style because the shorter heel isn't as sexy as taller styles, but this one is right for me.

These are THE MOST COMFORTABLE PUMPS I HAVE EVER ORDERED! I have really bad bunions to the point that my feet are deformed. Whenever I've had pumps in the past, the balls of my feet would be killing me within 1/2 hour. My bunions would be throbbing in 2 hours. These shoes actually look a bit higher than they are because of the narrow platform on the front. I can walk in these comfortably for hours!! There is enough cushion inside so the balls of my feet don't hurt. I normally order 8 w, but I decided to order 8ww because of my bunions. They look beautiful, and you can't even tell that I have bunions! I will be ordering another pair today!

These seem to be the only pumps my fussy feet can handle! I've purchased and returned dozens of shoes. I love Zappos! So happy for their easy return policy! I have bunions, high arches, sensitive toes and I over-pronate. I still add a slight arch support in these & had to heat them with a blow dryer and wear thick socks for a few minutes just to stretch the toe box a tad, and then they were great! Usually I'm limping as soon as I put any heels on, but not with these. I don't have any bunion pain at the end of church or business meetings. They look professional. I also recommend the Rose Petals Calienete for a dressier look or black tie affair.

Excellent shoe! Comfortable and semi-dress black pump. These can be worn with a skirt, dress, or slacks. All around perfect shoe. Nice high leather up the foot for good support, and finished look.

My third attempt at this shoe worked. The Vaneli 8-1/2 WW worked the best. This shoe gave my toes more room and it was more comfortable. I have had Vaneli shoes in the past and have been very pleased with them.

Fashionable and nice looking shoe for work. Heel a comfortable height and the somewhat rounded toe makes it much more comfortable than most dressy shoes. I am very happy with my purchase, and wished this shoe came in a variety of other colors.

Amazingly soft leather - molded to my feet within minutes, making a very small bunion very happy. I wanted a "comfortable" pump, with a lower heel, and this fits the bill perfectly. The platform makes the heel feel lower than the actual 2".The patent heel and platform add a nice touch to the black leather. They definitely look much better than the styles listed as "comfort" shoes. They're not quite fashionable enough to wear with many of my dresses, but they look good with pants and more tailored suits - either skirts or pants. For days that involve a lot of walking or standing, or running through an airport, these can't be beat. Lots of cushioning, great rubber sole. I normally wear a 4 1/2 and these fit true to size. They toe appears narrow, but they fit perfectly. Definitely a good purchase.

Darn! These are beautiful shoes. The 7.5 EE was too long - I was stepping out of the shoe. I tried a 7 EE but my toes were smashed. So sorry to have to send it back.

Love this shoe. I'm returning due to a flaw on the toe. Will get another pair. My feet are hard to fit. Size 10.5 on L foot and 11 on right. The toe box fits well and they don't feel loose on L foot. My feet are on the narrow side and I have a problem with a little bit of a hammer toe.

Well, this beautiful shoe has me very optimistic that I have found a comfortable shoe for a 50+ woman that is comfortable while still looking great. I love that Van Eli carries the 11.5 because it always works for me. Very sexy yet not crippling! ;-)

Nice looking pump for work. I am typically a 7.5 slim in Vaneli, though sometimes I can get away with a narrow. This shoe was too long and too wide in a 7.5N. Maybe a 7N will work for me. I wish a 7.5S was available.

These are fabulous! They are good looking, and so comfortable, they feel like slippers right out of the box. They are so lightweight, you barely know that they are there! I needed chic and comfortable black pumps to wear to a wedding, with skirts and dresses, etc. I have been trying to find pumps like these for the last two years, I have probably ordered and sent back at least 20 pairs. Whenever I would find a comfortable pair, they would tend to slip in the heels. Most every shoe and boot in my closet is a size 8, I ordered these in an 8½M, based on another Vaneli pump that I had tried and they fit perfectly. Hooray! I am ordering a second pair to have as a backup.

When I see a rare Vaneli SLIM come available, I snatch it up! I wasn't sorry. Such a pretty, basic black pump and it fits beautifully. The little platform is just right, heel height is very comfortable. Vaneli, if you had some more colors, I'd buy them all! And please, more Slim sizes all around.

I do not wear heels, hiking and flats are my shoes of choice. I needed a basic pair of dress shoes to wear with dresses and suits and ordered 6 pairs from Zappos. These shoes were by far the most comfortable shoes. The wedge in the front reduces the pressure on the front of the foot while maintaining height. They are soft and comfortable and the sizing seems accurate!

Such a really good looking shoe, however I must return them due to 2 main issues. 1) There was no cushioning under the ball of my foot so every step I took felt like foot was hitting a hard surface. 2) The upper shoe edge hit just at my bunions which made them very sore. Thanks to Zappos though for making it so easy to continue the hunt for the perfect dress shoe with the easy return policy.

What a beautiful and stylish shoe! I loved this shoe straight out of the box, sadly it was a little too tight at the cut in over my foot, so they had to be returned. So comfortable just not the proper fit for me. Very well made and appears to be much more expensive than they actually are.

Very comfortable. Seems to run a little big though. Had to put one of those tightener things at the back of my heel to keep it from flopping off.

Very soft leather. I ordered size 7M, which is my normal size, but shoe was a bit tight in the front part, so I also ordered 7W and 7.5M, I decided to keep the 7M since the shoe is generally comfortable and the heel is not too high and hoping that it will fit better as I wear it. It is a good basic shoe.

I usually wear an 8 1/2 B in "comfort" brand shoes. This was way too narrowin the B width. I've kept the shoes and worn them, twice, though they pinch in the toe box and I wish I could have exchanged them for a C width. Sadly, there is no C width available at this time. This is definitely a narrowly cut shoe -- beware if you need width in the tow box or have a bunion. On the positive side -- the shoe is beautiful in the black suede, nice style.

I had been looking for a black suede pump that would work nicely for business or dressy occasions. This shoe looked elegant and perfect for my needs...however, I usually wear an 8 1/2 B (medium) -- but this shoe was way too narrow across the toe box. I would have ordered a W (wide) had I known. Sadly, the 8 1/2 W is no longer available, so I will struggle to make this shoe comfortable, and perhaps can stretch it out. Bummer.

These looked really cute and the width was great in the EE (wide enough toe box and not too narrow a heel), but I found that the edges of the toe box dug into the top of my foot and the edges of the heel dug into my ankle.
