These shoes are really beautiful and classy. They have a leather upper with a patent leather platform and heel. Unfortunately they are very narrow, so I will be returning them.

These are gorgeous boots that are well-made but suffer terribly from vanity sizing. I am a size 10M. I ordered a 10M. I can fit my foot plus a finger behind my heel in the shoe. That's just ridiculous and is the only reason I rated it 3 stars overall. The shoes are lovely otherwise, and I am sad to return them. But they just don't fit at all. Worse, it doesn't look like I'll be able to find another pair since Zappos is out of the black version in 9.5 and 9, and hardly anyone sells this brand. (Vaneli doesn't even have its own website.) :(

Love these shoes. I wore them to a wedding and danced all night in them. Comfortable, not too high. I normally wear a 7 and the 7 was perfect.

Beautiful Shoe Simple and tasteful. Would work with pants or a dress. Sadly too narrow for the bunion...Must return them.

Smallest 9 and a half narrow ever! Must return these nice-looking casual shoes. May try the next size.

Really lovely. For one who can't wear four inch heels this is the closest I can get to looking hot, fashionista version. The platform under the front portion lets me get away with a slightly higher heel than my 100 or so foot bones will normally tolerate (without a nasty cramp arising in the front of my right foot). They look lovely -- shiny patent heel and platform against the velvety suede of the shoe body. The rounder than average toe looks high style, not dumpy on these. Yum yum yum.

To my surprise (and my wide feet), these were super comfortable. The cross over was not tight or restrictive. My issue, and reason for returning, is the color. I ordered the taupe which did not look shiny in the photos like the black and black ones. The brown contrast is more like a copper vinyl; a bit too sparkly for me. Really great shoe if they made a matte version.

I purchased the taupe suede bootie. I like the desert color. The style is versatile and current. The bottom of the shoe has good traction. The boot is easy to get on and off. I would like the bootie even more if the heel was built up to some extent. The heel is practically non-existent. I predict that the heels will show signs of wear quickly. The sole of the shoe is flat and thin. Worth keeping because of the cute style, but the lack of thickness in the heel and sole lessens the durability of this otherwise well-made shoe.

This dressy sandal was a little too skimpy for me. If it had been made of leather, it might have felt more substantial on my foot. I felt as though the straps could break apart at any moment.

These shoes are incredible! I just got them in the mail today. They fit my narrow feet like a glove, and the pointed toe allows for a good amount of wiggle-room. Arch support is great. Highly recommend!

These are very cute shoes, and I love the color and style! They are just too flat for me. I need a little more support in the arch and heel. Therefore, I am returning them, still on the hunt for ivory flats and navy flats.

I would be devastated if Zappos no longer carried these shoes. This is how much I love them! I bought one pair last year. I love them so much, I save them for special occasions. I just placed another order. I usually wear 7½W. For these shoes, I have to wear size 8W. They are extremely comfortable, snug, light weight and elegant. Furthermore, I have wide feet, because of the top of the shoe covers a large portion alongside my feet, it actually makes my feet looks slim! It is a brilliant design both in function and beauty. When I wear them, I wear them for long hours and walk a lot (usually in conference). At the end of the day, I did not experience fatigue. If there is a competition among all shoes, this is the winner for me! Zappos, please do not forget to refill your orders!

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.

The fit was nice, comfortable, but too shiny and silvery for how I am planning on wearing them.I also prefer a lower cut for toe cleavage.

Toe box not as high as the Marjory shoe; as a result, the shoe (11M) feels too short because I need a high toe box. Shoe feels very heavy as well.

Even though these shoes say that they are wide, they are not. Wide is normal, so I can only assume that normal must be narrow.

Love the shoes, the fit well and are very comfortable. And having a narrow foot the fit was perfect! I received many compliments!

These shoes have worked out perfectly for my needs. I needed a short heeled dressy shoe that had an itsy-bitsy bit of edginess to them. The toe opening was perfect as well; just enough to show my pedicure. The 1 3/4 inch heel was comfortable but still helped me look/feel pulled together. Thank you Zappos! You are my "go to" site for efficient customer service and diverse items offered!

Absolutely gorgeous. Obvious quality, looks great, special touches. Love it! Can't comment on arch support, because I don't need it.
