These look and feel great. I'm wearing a 3-1/2 inch heel, but with the 1 inch platform, it feels like I'm wearing a 2-1/2 inch heel. Very comfortable! I bought the black leather in size 8M, and the fit is perfect. I want to marry this shoe!

This is the second pair of the same style shoes that I purchased. I loved them both (black and animal print) until BOTH of the sling backs broke after the third wear. I have bought Nine West products on a pretty regular basis over the years but this is NOT a quality product. Also since I paid the full price for both. Buyer beware!

I bought this shoe based on others reviews and they were right. This is the most comfortable sling back shoe. The straps stays in place. I wore them for at least 5 hours and that included a lot of walking. Great shoes at a great price.

Best peep toe sling back. I own them in several colors... they are timeless and so very easy on the feet.

I make a point to not wear heels so when I do, I look for some amount of comfort. These were okay for the couple of hours the wedding stuff lasted. However, I did breathe a sigh of relief when I kicked them off for dancing at the reception. Bottom line they are very cute/sexy but your toes could be a touch numb after several hours. Perhaps if you're used to foot torture by wearing heels the numbness wouldn't happen? Overall good buy for some retro flash in not too high a heel.

Really comfortable and beautiful shoes. I don't wear heels often because they kill my feet. These didn't bother me a bit. They really added a nice finishing touch to my outfit.

Love this shoe - stylish. Pretty comfortable for the height. Liked this shoe so much for the style, fit and reasonable price, that I own it in bone, black patent, blue, gold and red!

I wore these shoes for the first time from 9:00am - 6:00pm, mostly standing and dancing. My feet were obviously tired as I do not wear heels on a regular basis, but they did not hurt. I got many compliments, and would get another pair in a different color if I need another pair of heels! I highly recommend them.

These are my all time favorite heels! I have/had three pairs; nude and black. I get a lot of compliments on them. They are so comfortable, I can wear them all day. But the straps break. I just had the strap break on my second black pair today, the nude one looks like it is about to. The elastic seems to thin out over time and breaks. I can get about one full year out of them Spring-fall then they break. I do wear them almost every work day because I love them so much. Even though the strap broke, I will buy another pair. It's what you pay for comfort. I love heels but hate the pain.

I had to return these after only wearing them a few times. The sling back broke while I was walking into work (thank goodness I had an extra pair of shoes in my office). Do not buy these unless you want to pay more for a pair of shoes you will only be able to wear a handful of times?

These were perfect for work- the right height, and quite comfortable. After wearing only a few times, the sling back on the left shoe snapped. Luckily Zappos is awesome and offered a refund. Since they are nine west, I thought maybe it was just a fluke, so instead I had them send me a replacement figuring I'd give them another try. Well, I have worn these twice and the sling back is already fraying and ripping on the right shoe! Nine west- I don't know what is going on with your brand, but this is a poorly made shoe. Zappos again did the right thing by me, and I am getting a totally different shoe instead this time. Its a shame because these really were working out for me at the office. Bummer!

Great way for a busy person to shop. The shoes came right to my door. I was worried I had ordered them too small, but they fit perfectly. I can wear anywhere between a 7-8 and a half. I ordered a 7 and a half since it was a sling back with an open toe. Very comfortable, just a little breaking in required. Never had blisters from the shoes.

Do not buy these shoes. I have had 3 pairs of NW slingbacks that the sling has broken after about 5 times of wearing them. This actual pair has done it twice. And Zappos will not help me, they told me to get with NW, so not buying anything from them again, too bad.

Very nice shoe--much higher than I usually wear but felt I could handle these. Unfortunately the color is a much brighter sapphire blue and I needed closer to navy. True to size.

The shoe's are awesome, I ordered the gold for my choirs anniversary because the ones that I wanted was sold out. The only pair that I could get in gold were these. I had seconds thoughts, but when I saw them and put them on they were so comfortable and cute now I want a second pair.

These shoes are very cute on and I received a bunch of compliments on them. They are pretty comfortable for heels, but after a while they can start to hurt on the ball of your foot, which is probably expected from heels. My biggest complaint is that they scratch VERY easily, so just be careful with that. Besides that, I would recommend these shoes.

I ordered these shoes for a summer wedding. Delicious. They fit perfectly and super stylish, and surprisingly comfortable. I actually decided to find a dress to match the shoes, rather than shoes to match the dress.

I love these shoes! They are the most comfortable pair of heels I have ever worn. I went dancing all night and I felt like I was in flats. I bought a pair of black leather, and now I am ordering a pair of white leather. They are beautiful, and very stylish. They look good with dresses, pants, or even jeans.

These shoes have been great. I chose along backs because the regular shoe backs seem to be too loose these days and slip off my heel no matter what I do. I have been very happy with them and walk quite a bit in them without any problem.

Just love these shoes. I was looking for a basic Navy sling back to wear with dresses, etc. I was thrilled to find this pair by Nine West. Extra bonus: it comes in so many colors, you might just have to pick several. The platform keeps these heels from feeling like you are walking on your tip toes all day. I recommend these shoes.

I love these shoes! They are true to size and very comfortable to wear for a long period of time. They look great with a dress, jeans, or dressy pants. I will probably purchase more colors.

Bought this shoe in black leather. Liked the look and style of it. But it was too narrow in the toe box and I had to send them back. Loved Zappos efficient, hassle-free, free return process! My account was speedily credited. Zappos, how cool are you!
