I don't write a lot of reviews. But you have to understand how long I have searched for the perfect pump, and how many returns Zappos has suffered from me (THANK YOU ZAPPOS). It was a VERY long time, and they were A LOT of returns. But finally - finally - we have hit the jackpot ("we" as in I have hit the jackpot of pumps, and Zappos has hit the jackpot in my credit card!). I love this shoe. I have wide feet, with the right foot slightly smaller than the left, and I have never, in my life, been able to find classy, simple, beautiful pumps that fit my feet without padding, straps, and/or inserts. These Trotters are about 1/3 more expensive than I usually pay for leather heels, but they are worth it. 7W is my true size, but often I have had to make-do with 7.5M, 7.5W, depending on brand. Inevitably, the 7.5's would be a bit too long and slip in the heel, and 7.5M would be too tight in the toes. I bought these in 7W. The length is perfect, and they started out a bit tight in the toes (I think that's why they fit both of my feet). I have worn them around the house for about 5 hours now, and I can tell that the width will mold to my feet. That's because the upper is leather, and the lining is also leather. (Beware of dress shoes with leather uppers but synthetic lining! Those will not stretch much.) No slipping, no pinching, and the leather is soft enough that I will not be getting bloody ankles. These are true to size. The heel comes down at an angle, rather than straight down, which means it holds your weight at the center of your heel, meaning more stability. Even though the heel is substantial, the silhouette from the back is thin, so it looks elegant. I feel so excited about finding these beauties, I just bought one of these in every color (!!!). It's a small fortune for me, but considering how many years I have searched, and how much time I will save not having to search anymore, it is worth it. These babies will be keepers for as long as they have life!

A lovely shoe to look at. The "wide" width is not very wide. The shoe runs a full size too small.

A lovely shoe to look at. The "wide" width is not very wide. The shoe runs a full size too small.

I'd also recommend: For wider shoes, try Keen or Aravan

These are beautiful leather shoes and very well made. I hadn't found this quality pump for about 15 years. I ordered the wrong size and will reorder the same shoe. The only thing I would prefer a heel that has a broader base for more support.

This is a great shoe for when you need to dress up but don't want to look like you're going to a club. The heel is the perfect height for work in an office. I work in a corporate environment, but am on my feet a lot - greeting clients, meeting with colleagues and running errands. This shoe looks professional but is very comfortable! I also wear them walking around the mall in my boot cut jeans! I got the nude color in 7.5 and they feel true to size.

I like this shoe for comfort and fit, but not so much for style. Toe appears more round than in photo, and the blue is lighter than a true navy. But quite versatile, and comfortable. So I'll keep them.
