These shoes are super cute. The sole is stiff so I feel like I’m clomping in them. Not sure if that will change over time. The boots are very stylish. I bought these for a little less than MSRP and feel like what I spent matches their worth. They are fabric, not leather, with no comfort features, however the fit is pretty good. Not too narrow.

Shoe is beautiful. A little tight but not bad by the front of the shoe. Overall a great looking shoe.

I really wanted to like these shoes. The price, style and color were perfect, but as soon as I slipped them on I was in pain.

I am pretty happy with these boots. They look really nice with a dress or skirt since the ankle is narrow and not at all chunky. Mine fit best with pantyhose or tights. They also look nice with pants. When I first got the boots I had trouble getting them on since the opening is tight and there is no zipper. But I got them on and they loosened up a bit and now go on much easier. These booties are very comfortable, too, even though they have a slightly higher heel than what I usually wear.

Nice boot, but unfortunately went just above my knee. I would have preferred knee high (just below the knee). Sending them back.

Super cute and actually comfortable. Slight heel for just a teeny bit of height. Great to dress up or down.

These are SO cute on! It's the perfect heel height -- high enough to be sexy, but extremely comfortable. The "V" shaped upper is so perfect for my high arches and slightly wide foot. It's slimming and elongating, so if you have trouble with shoes cutting into the top of your foot and making your foot look "puffy," this shape is the solution. Normally I try to find a wide width shoe so this doesn't happen, but there's no problem with a M width shoe for me here. They are so darned sexy and comfy, I just ordered a second pair so I won't have to worry about wearing these out. I know they'll be the only dressier black heel I really want to wear, because I won't have to choose between style and comfort. Why aren't more shoes this height? It's perfect! Please make more in lots of colors!

L-o-v-e!!! Had been looking for a orange heel for sometime and these are perfect! I’ve gotten so many compliments and have only worn twice. My Zappos rep was amazing, too!

I have these in nude as well. I’m usually an 8 in boots, flats, and running shoes and a 7.5 in heels. After reading reviews I decided to go with the 8 in these. A 7.5 would’ve been too tight. They’re comfortable and cute. The length is fine.

These are so pretty that my friend ordered the shoe! Runs about a 1/2 size small - which is needed for comfort. If you like to accent black outfits you will not be disappointed.

I really wanted to LOVE these shoes, like really. I wore them to an event and had to leave the event early because I am pretty certain these shoes are also a secret torture device. I feet hurt so badly, I wouldn't even cross the room to say goodbye to people. So bummed. They are adorable and I got lots of compliments on them. Maybe with lots of breaking in but for me, they are a no-go.

I love these shoes, they were perfect out of the box. I tried them on at the end of the day when I'm usually tired. Nice cushion under the ball of the foot, heel height is good and felt stable. I wore them around the house for the rest of the evening and at work the next day. They were very comfortable and I got several compliments in the office. I love the neutral color that's perfect for the cooler weather. If they came in black suede I'd order another pair.

This is such a pretty shoe! Great details add originality to a simple shoe style. I got the burgundy, and they go great with pretty much any color pant. No actual arch support inside, but the heel helps make up for it. I rated one star less for comfort because after a long day with an exceptional amount of walking, it started rubbing wrong inside because of the manmade bottoms, however I think once they’re broken in a bit more, it should solve itself!

I normally wear an 8.5, so based on the reviews, I bought both 8.5 and 9. 9 was too loose but 8.5 was just a bit snug so I figure they’ll eventually stretch. They didn’t, but they are still wearable. Not the most uncomfortable shoes I own, but they are super cute.

I have very high arches and this pair of shoes, as adorable as they are, were squeezing my toes and my arch didn't touch where it should have. They also looked exactly like a pair of Sam E's that I have. So, they are being returned.

Love these! They're true to size, comfortable, and really cute. I got them in the burgundy, but I'm considering getting them in another color too.

I normally wear an 8 in boots, flats, and running shoes, but a 7.5 in heels. After reading the reviews about these being a tighter fit I opted for the 8 and they fit perfectly. A 7.5 would have been too small and tight. These are comfortable and cute.

A cute summer shoe. When I wear heels, I prefer short ones so they don’t hurt my arch or toes. These are a perfect height.

Silver COLOR: I also ordered the Silver Specchio and took it out for this review. The color is really fantastic-- highly mirrored finish, with the insole/liner having some of that sparkle. Not sure how that finish would hold up. (And like glass fingerprints will show up.)

I'm on a quest to find a good fitting nude kitten heel. I have the added challenge of having wide short feet. Charles David is a good brand name, so I ordered. These shoes did not agree with my feet as 1) these shoes do not bend at all, 2) the very toe portion and sides are not high enough to hole my foot in place, and 3) color in person is light taupe and not pink as on my computer screen, and 4) the shoe and heel did not provide any/enough traction. The insole is glued on and the shoe has a hint of that glue smell. I now see that the fit guide thinks that these feel a half size longer. I think that these shoes would fit more people better if it had more leather in the front as I mentioned before. So, unfortunately, this pair from Charles is not the "nude" kitten heel for me. Packaging from manufacturer is good. See pic. Shipping and Packaging from Zappos was okay as additional paper/bubble wrap could have been added for the 2 boxes to keep the boxes neat during travel.

Cute shoes but they run at least a full size larger...so my recommendation to future buyers is to size DOWN a full size if ordering these shoes.

These shoes are like wear wood on your feet. Very hard, stiff.
