Very good looking dress pump with tapered heel. Strikingly comfortable! The leather is soft enough and forgiving over my broad forefoot. I wore them all afternoon for an "in the vineyard" wedding and all evening for the indoor reception. Good for dancing yet not so slippery that they could be treacherous!

This shoe would be fine for me if only it came in a narrow size. It is almost identical to a Munro shoe that is no longer made that was my everyday "go to" shoe. I was disappointed that the Medium size did not work for me.

What a lovely elegant shoe. The dark red color is a great accent color and perfect for Fall. A little tight on my wide 9 and 1/2 foot but generally very comfortable, probably because of the real materials they are made from. The similar Nine West version had hard man-made interior making it hurt. This shoe looks beautiful and gives height without any difficulty walking. Love it!

Vaneli just isn't a comfort shoe. The sole is very thin, no cushioning, so even though the heel is low, it's still uncomfortable for someone like me with Morton's neuroma.

Really beautiful shoe and very comfortable -- I wore them to a wedding and was on my feet (including walking on cobblestones) for hours and never had any discomfort. Great right out of the box!

Very cute shoe that is nicely made. There is not enough footbed support for my feet. I will try it in a larger size to see if I can get an orthopedic insert into it. Cute for a dress or trousers.

I have worn similar Vaneli flats for several years, always in my standard size 9. This shoe seems to run smaller, so I'm trying a 9.5. The styling is great - the chain detail adds some pizazz to a plain flat, and didn't look cheap or tacky. If I can get these to fit, I think they will be a great alternative to a plain black flat, and a great walking shoe.

This shoe is similar in style to a Cole Haan quilted flat I liked - I decided to give it a go because it's priced quite a bit less. It's a very cute shoe... but...(1) it's rubbing my outer heel raw, (2) the heel sole has no traction - watch out for slipping on hard floors, and (3) it squeaks a bit when I walk. Too bad it didn't work out!

After having foot surgery, I needed a heel that looked professional and classy. This shoe fit the bill--I love Vaneli shoes, and though I purchased a W width to accommodate my swollen foot, they look and feel great.

The red flats are really beautiful. The metal is gold color, which I prefer over silver, and it's a nice, rich color. The size is right, too. As for the comment made about about the arch support, I agree, however I use the Dr. Scholl's inserts for all my shoes and there's definitely room for it. Had a hiccup getting these deliver, but I sure cannot complain about Zappos' customer service. They replace the shoes when UPS started their delivery investigation. Kudos.

Bought these shoes in black and love them so much I bought them in brown. I have wide feet and have a hard time finding shoes that are both comfortable and stylish. These met both objectives.

I'm usually a 9.5/10, flat feet, wide toe area when I walk and was looking for support comfort and style. I ordered a 10m. They're narrow and short and small. I wanted these so badly. They're just not right.

Really cool "smoking slipper" type flat (quilting lends this effect). The marine suede is uber dark navy with black cap toe in patent--fun. This is one of the "Collection" Vaneli's that comes in Purple slim box. With this style I am have found I am a 8.5N, not 9N, in their flat heeled shoes. FOr example in the RUse I was a 9N and noway could a 8.5 have fit--it would not have been able to slip it on (also high front). The brand is a great brand for moderately priced expensive shoes. I have narrow feet and found that the top part opening & sides were plenty wide--roomy even, in narrow, and that contributed to need to order 8.5 for sure. Zappos was fab as always re exchanges. It is a fun classic shoe style with some trendy aspects and I recommend.

Comfy, stylish, with fabulous arch support. I'm a 9/9.5 and I ordered a 10 - it fit perfectly. Definitely runs smaller than another pair of Vaneli's I own (pumps in a 9.5). Definitely recommend if you're looking for a work flat or a cute shoe for running around the city.

These are gorgeous shoes! They are great for almost any special occasion. They do run a bit long. They have a beautiful shimmer to them. I have not seen anything similar.

This is a very classy looking shoes. Understated, but the metal heel gives it enough pizzazz without being tacky. However, it feels very narrow and tight. I usually wear medium width and I ordered a medium but it really felt tight. If I go a size bigger, I am pretty sure they will be too long. Knowing that, I kept the shoes and searched how to stretch patent leather on the internet to make it a bit roomy. I followed the recommendations. It got a bit roomy but it was still tight. I, nevertheless, dared to wear it to work and the best surprise was that my feet were not tired at all despite the tightness. Bottom line: fabulous-looking shoes, tight but still, very comfortable.

Love the square toe, the bright red color and the buckle. What I do not like is the lack of arch support and feel it needs a little more heel even though it is a flat.

These shoes are comfortable and worth every penny. Just a warning: my feet are narrow, but I had to order the wide in this shoe. I think it was because of the toe box, not the actual width in the middle. I must have a larger than normal range on my toe box because the regular sized shoe squeezed too tight. The wides fit just fine, but my foot is not wide. Other than that, I love this shoe. Highly recommend it.

Excellent business flat. I have wide feet 8.5w and bunions. These shoes are soft but cover my feet appropriately and hold their shape. This is important! I have many shoes that look good initially but get stretched out of shape and look awful. There was no breaking in period with these as well. The soles do not cause slipping, which is great because I wear them to and from work in DC. I would purchase them again.

The black and brown Dilys are both beautiful wedge suede shoes. Although I've only worn them for a short time around the house they seem comfortable. I bought and returned 5 other suede wedge shoes because of comfort and fit but these are keepers. The style, comfort, suede and color make these the perfect winter shoe. I normally wear a 7M, 7.5 M or 7.5 N, the 7M fit in the Dilys.
