After paying so much for this shoe, the first I wore it to church, found out the heels or sole is going one sided on both legs and it's not Comfortable at all. Very dissatisfied and disappointed. Wish I can send it back

My calves are not really that wide, but I ordered wide calf for comfort and one boot was so tight I couldn’t even zip it up. The other I could zip, but barely. The hard part of the boot that surrounds the heel is high and rubs on the ankles. There’s not much traction on the soles. They are beautiful boots; they just don’t fit right. Back they go.

The sides of the shoe gapped when I stepped down on the heel, and then they made a popping sound when I took the step. Maybe they were too wide for me. Top is cute.

These are cute booties, I’ve gotten compliments on them. The suede is soft and there was no breaking-in period. However, for a brand called Walking Cradles, the sole is uncomfortably thin. I’m not a princess-and-the-pea sort but I feel every sidewalk crack, every little stone, the edge of each stair, etc. I live in Europe and these are unwearable when going somewhere with lots of cobblestones. Save them for indoor days and you’ll be fine, but I think the sole should be a lot more comfortable for the price and the name.

Perfect in every way. The most comfortable dress flats, I have ever owned. It is not easy for me to find comfortable dress shoes. These are amazing. I’m ordering more colors. Thank you ZAPPOS!

Really like these. Nice comfortable flat for the office. Nothing fancy but I like the little detailing and a smidge of a heel. I returned them because the color I really wanted (pewter) came back in stock so I got those instead.

I have some foot issues and was looking for a comfortable heel to wear to a wedding. These are very good looking for comfort oriented heels and don't look too matronly, in my opinion. I was a little worried that the straps would give me blisters as they are very tight and there is no way to adjust them, but I was able to wear them all night with no issues. I would highly recommend these shoes.

This shoe is even cuter in person than in the picture. Very stylish, yet comfortable. I really like that the strap is Velcro, so much easier than dealing with a buckle.

These shoes look at little old fashioned to me. They were too big and the buckle on the side will not allow you to shorten the heel strap. The far side of the buckle is stiff and gradually grows in width, meaning you can extend the strap to make it longer but you can not use the shortest holes to make the strap tighter across the heel. I odered the red pair, the color is great if you can get one that fits.

This boot is so cute to look at but fit my foot in some really weird way. The heel slipped up and down and it pinched across the toes. The really odd looking part was the front of the boot. They looked like the toes were pointing outward. Just not what I was hoping for. I’ll be returning these.

I love these boots! I have never mail ordered boots before but they fit extremely well on my wide feet. Really pleased so I’ve ordered a different pair of Walking Cradles hoping they fit just s well

These are very comfortable shoes. They aren’t too “old lady” looking and I really can walk and stand for long periods of time in them. A great, basic black pump that is totally practical.

I have a narrow foot and find it very hard to find shoes that fit and are comfortable--these shoes are terrific! Enough heel to feel dressy, but not wobbly on an old lady! Love the look!

I am hereby giving up my search for the perfect pair of boots on Zappos. I love Zappos, and I buy almost all my shoes from them....but boots? No. I give up. There is something wrong with every pair I've tried (and I've tried at least half a dozen pairs), and it's usually a problem with fit; numerous ones I've ordered have been quite attractive, but either (1) the size is too large or too small, (2) the circumference is not as advertised and they are too big or I can't get them zipped at all, and/or (3) the heel is higher than advertised and I can't bear wearing high heels, never could. I think high heels are an invention of the male establishment that wants to slow women down and cause them pain. These particular boots have a tantalizing name: "Walking Cradles." Sounds comfy, doesn't it? Not. They are as poorly padded as the cheapest of any cheap shoes. Thus: I give up. Enough is enough. Bah. Humbug!!

These felt true to size. I usually wear a 9 or 9.5 and I fit into a 9 in these. I have not worn them outside yet but they seemed very comfortable when I tried them on. Love the style and the distressed leather.

For a wide-calf boot, these are pretty good. They look cute, and I like the details at the ankle. They are a little stiff, but I expect they'll loosen up in time. The zipper is a little difficult to raise and lower, but it does work. Not my favorite boots I've ever owned, but good enough to keep for now. I'm hoping I'll grow to love them more.

Super cute with leggings and sweaters. Fits over my very high arch due to the elastic over the arch. Color works well with many outfits.

I needed a pair of shoes for a fancy wedding and didn’t have much time. I have horrible super wide feet (usually 8.5 ww) and puffy insteps so most shoes don’t work too well for me. These heels fit true to size, much like other Walking Cradle shoes I’ve bought. Plenty of room in the toe box and they didn’t cut into the sides of my foot. I was sad that they didn’t have the super soft pebble-like footbed which would have been so nice when I was gonna be standing for long periods of time. But they were what I needed style wise so I kept them. The criss cross bands on top of my foot were kind of tight, but they make soften after I have worn them a few more times, and it could just be my stupid feet. Bought padded foam insoles from drugstore to insert and make footbed softer. Great fast shipping by Zappos as usual. Love your customer service!
