These shoes are a true 12N and the heel hugs my foot! Love the color (navy) and they look great with either dresses or jeans.

These shoes are nice looking but I ordered a 12N and the box was labeled 12N but the shoes inside were labeled 12M. So, they are too wide for me and I had to return them. I ordered the navy blue and the color of the blue is really a true navy. Sorry they don't fit me.

I have a narrow foot and a large bunion near the big toe on one foot so, although I use to wear a size 9N, I now wear a 9 1/2 N to accommodate the bunion and allow more room in the toe area. While there is plenty of room in the length I am going to stretch the width a bit. I know the shoe will rub on the bunion after wearing for a awhile. It’s leather and will soften over time but I don’t relish breaking them in. Otherwise they are very comfortable and, as one reviewer noted, much nicer in person than in the photo. They are really cute. They don’t fit my foot snugly, a slight gap on the sides but I think a NN would be too narrow, if it was available. The strap is comfortable and doesn’t rub. I originally ordered the bone and liked them enough to order the black. I won’t wear anything higher than a kitten heel because I need my shoes to be comfortable. Anyone with a bunion knows that walking in heels can be a killer. I appreciate Zappos amazing fast deliveries and even more, the speedy refunds. It takes other online stores weeks to credit your account on refunds.

Walking Cradles' Hazel is a very pretty shoe -- stylish (particularly from the front) yet sensible. Purchased the blush patent and liked it very much. I ordered a 1/2 size larger than I normally wear to allow for the pointy toe, but I didn't need it; my regular size actually fit better. The only unfortunate negative for me is that the top of the shoe rested precisely on my bunion, in both sizes, so I very sadly had to return them.

These shoes are so pretty but the sizing was off for me. I am usually 11 but found the 11 too long. ( 10 1/2 too tight ). Too bad because they are attractive .

The shoes felt true to fit and width. I really liked the color - navy - not too dark. Would make a great work shoe.

These have to be the most comfortable shoes Ive ever had! I didn't even have to break them in! I did have to go a half size smaller though.

If I had not needed them for an interview today, I would have exchanged them for size. I applied 3 sets of heel pads to make them wearable.

These shoes are super comfortable right out of the box. I generally wear a 6.5 or 7 wide, and these were perfect in a 6.5 wide. I'm returning them, however, because I don't like the light taupe color. If they were offered in colors other than taupe or black, I'd absolutely buy them.

These shoes are really comfortable. I generally wear a 6.5 or 7 wide, and these were perfect in a 6.5 wide. I'm not sure how I feel about the pattern on top of the shoes, but the comfort has won me over.

Love,love,love these shoes!! I have a difficult foot to fit narrow heel and afoot that is narrow top to bottom not width wise. These shoes fit well and are very comfy, no sliding around in the shoe when I wear them! I’m so happy to have a slide on that finally fits!

Much narrower than expected. Will need to reorder medium width to try.

I bought two pairs, one in black and one in bone. I quit wearing heels years ago, with the exception of one wedding in 2015. I also needed shoes that I could wear to spiff up a dress, if needed. These two pairs were my answer. They don't hurt my bunions, and they also give me a bit more height.

I really wanted to keep these shoes. They are very cute. They also came with an extra set of white laces so that I choose which color lace to use. They were very comfortable. BUT I usually wear an 8.5 or a 9. I bought this shoe in both sizes. The 8.5 was still too long and my foot kept slipping out in the back. They have built in a couple of "pillows" around the heal - but it just didn't work. I was thinking of keeping them and adding a heal pad but the way it is built it just wouldn't work. I was sad.

I love these shoes, but I would say they are 1/2 or even 1 size too small. because of the pointed toes. They look great, though. I will definitely look into more walking Cradles styles. Thanks for making size 12N!

Was surprised by how well these fit, right out of the box. Not huge arch support, but plenty comfortable for the office, and a cute and rare find for my WW feet. May have to purchase in other colors!

I struggle with corns on my pinky toes (ugh) so I have started buying wide width shoes even though my foot isn't super wide. I ordered a bunch of wide shoes at once to try and these were the best! They felt great on my feet right out of the box, which is a rare feeling for me. I'm glad that lower block heels are fairly trendy now anyway so I don't feel dowdy in these.

I thought these shoes looked really cute on line. I was really disappointed when I received them. They look cheap. Like really cheap. They did fit well, looked cute, and would probably be comfortable. But I cannot justify paying $130 for shoes that look like they should cost no more than $30. So back they go.

these are great shoes for those who want the look of a flat but the support of a "real" shoe. The leather is soft and I wore them to work right out of the box with no problems. I purchased in both navy and black and love them. I have a narrow heel and don't have any problems with the shoe slipping off. Great shoes!

nice shoe. the champagne color is a little strange but ok. runs maybe a little narrow for a M but I like that in a M. the white sole is cute and love the leather upper. hopefully the perforated top will be breathable in warm weather.
