I used to have a wide foot (8.5 W), but since my pregnancy my foot has gotten shorter and wider (8 WW). I also have a slight bunion but it isn't a bad one. I have struggled for many months to find a basic black pump that doesn't squeeze and pinch my foot. I do a lot of walking and standing in my job, and I refuse to wear shoes that hurt or mutilate my feet. I also refuse to wear shoes that look orthotic or like they belong on a grandmother (I'm 30 and I like to consider myself as relatively stylish). At last, I have found a pump that fits and looks good. My husband joked that Zappos should fire me as a customer because I ordered and returned like 10 pairs of pumps (Seriously. It was a lot of trips to UPS.) looking for a black pump that fit. I wish I'd tried the LifeStride Parigi a long time ago, but I didn't think that the shoe in the photo was stylish enough or the brand cool enough. However, in person this is a very pretty, classic shoe. Like another customer mentioned, it makes you feel like Kate Middleton. It isn't trendy, but it isn't dowdy. I think it's the perfect all around pump, the kind that every woman should have in her closet. It's not like walking on a cloud, but it's not uncomfortable. I'll be ordering it in another color.

The toe box of this shoe is very short and cut right across my bunions. Ouch (and not a good look)! Thank you, Zappos for making it so easy to find the perfect pair of shoes!

I bought these for my friends' dressy spring weddings. The patent makes thes dressy. The flesh tone makes them versatile and makes your leg look longer. I do not wear heels, following a pretty severe ankle sprain. I usually feel wobbly on them or find them generally uncomfortable. These don't have as high a heel as some other pumps, and the heel is chunkier than a stiletto, so I felt stable on them. The footbed was also cushy and the toe-box is spacious. I brought flats to wear just in case, but they were comfortable all day long. They do run a little big. I usually wear a 10-10.5. Those sizes were sold out so I bought an 11 and crossed my fingers, and they felt great. I used inserts to keep my feet from sliding too fall forward. So I would say they run a little small.

I have NEVER worn heels. I was going to a black tie event so I figured I should try them. There was a TON of cushion in the toe. I walked a lot in these shoes and only at the very end of the night did they start to hurt (which says I shouldn't have done laps around the event). There was ZERO rubbing on any part of my feet. If you want or need to wear heels, these were fantastic!

I have been looking for the perfect taupe high heels and I finally found it! I am extremely picky when it comes to a good size heel and support. I wore the shoes for the first time today to work and my feet don't even hurt. You know that's saying something about the great quality!

Absolutely the most comfortable heel I've ever worn. Fits my slightly wide feet perfectly and doesn't pinch anywhere. The shorter heel is super practical and perfect for all day wear, but I'd love a higher heel too.

These are a great pair of pumps, especially for those with wide feet. It is the first pair that I feel I can actually wear for more than a few hours. I purchased the WW. It's the first time I have ever been able to purchase extra wide so I did have to drop down a half a size.

Okay, I know everyone is different. But for me personally, this is the only pair of shoes (heels, flats, sandals, boots, anything) I have ever owned that has never given me a blister or sore spot. I have worn these all day long several times and been amazed at how good my feet felt. I even have other Lifestride shoes that I have not found to be as comfortable as these are. I have them in three colors and am tempted to buy more. Hey, when the shoe fits.

I found these shoes at a Famous Footwear store in nude and purchased them because they are a great basic heel. I like that the heel is less than 3" so I wore these literally all night at a wedding (think 6:00 PM to 5:00 AM) and never took them off. I rarely wear heels so my feet were a little sore towards the end of the night but that is pretty amazing for a pair of heels, right? Now I am at Zappos to get them in black. These heels are definitely a style that I hope LifeStride will keep around for a while!

This is the perfect nude pump every woman should have in her shoe wardrobe. The heel height is sexy but not too high. The footbed is comfortable and the rounded toe is just classic. Right out of the box I wore them for hours and they were fabulous. I have a small bunion on my right foot and this pump is cut high enough to miss any painful spots. Even though I tend to have a narrow heel these did not slip at all. I wear them with everything from dresses to jeans and they look great.

I have been searching for a basic pump with non chunky heels in extra wide width for a long time. These fit the bill, were comfortable and looked good. I was so pleased with them when they arrived, I immediately purchased a second pair in another color.

The BEST EVER heel I have ever owned !!! So comfy and the neutral color works with everything. I hope to buy at least 2 more pair of the same in different colors. Size is true along with the width and because its a WW width, it doesn't bulge out in the center arch like some shoes do. Very impressed !

These were the perfect shoes! I bought four pairs, hoping to find something that worked. This one clicked! I normally wear a size 7½ but the toe box felt tight. So I ordered an 8, and they are perfect. I am fair skinned, and these ended up being just the right color for my skin tone. They are comfortable, reasonably priced, and my new favorites!

These shoes are so comfortable! I wear black heels as a staple for work, and I was so surprised when I tried these on. My feet teeter on the brink of being wide vs. normal, but these shoes are very comfortable and fit perfectly. Very cushy sole and they feel very supportive. And for a comfortable shoe they are not frumpy whatsoever - very stylish. I'll definitely be buying more in several colors!

These are beautiful shoes! I also tried the Anne Klein Isana, which I loved the look of (love the pointier toe on that shoe), but the overall shoe just was not wide enough, so I went with these instead. The Parigi fits perfectly right out of the box. I wear a 6 in sneakers and got this shoe in the 6W and it fit well. These definitely fit me true to size. (I possibly could have even gotten a 6WW, but these shoes will only be used for special occasions, not everyday wear, so I think the ones that I have kept will work great.) These shoes are a beautiful neutral color with a nice shine. Very stable and comfortable without looking old or dowdy.

The fit is perfect. I have not worn these to go out yet...weather has not been cooperating. They feel comfortable just for the short time I wore them. The upside for these pumps is they cover all of my toes which are quite long.

I really liked these shoes, but for the fact that I normally wear an 8.5 and that was too small. The only reason I chose to get a pair of shoes from another brand is that I wasn't super fond of the taupe color in person. It is well represented here on Zappos, but I thought I'd like it more than I did.

They seemed like nice shoes, but were tight. I should have ordered a 9 W instead of an 8 1/2 W. I choose another style for my daughter's wedding.

Bought 2 pair in size 8WW, one pair nude imitation "patent leather" (shiny) and one pair navy imitation "kid leather" (not shiny) The nude heels fit OK, but the navy pair a lot too long - even with a heel "filler" wouldn't work. Re-ordered the navy in half-size smaller and they seem fine. Both pair are snug on me, not "all day" shoes for me - but can break them in (hint: warm with hair dryer, then wear all day with thick socks.

This is the third pair of LifeStride Parigi shoes I have ordered and they are the best pumps I have ever owned. I wear a 9 Narrow, which is hard to find, so I am really pleased they offer so many color choices. The blush are such a lovely soft shade of pale pink and were perfect for my daughter's baby shower last weekend. The black kid and taupe colors are worn often as well. I can highly recommend these shoes which are super comfortable and attractive!

I rarely wear heels but needed them for an event. I tried three different beige pairs and these were the most comfortable of the bunch. I was able to dance all night so I think that's a win!

Very happy with this impulse buy! My feet are slightly different sizes so I usually prefer to wear heels with a tee strap rather than just plain pumps. Otherwise, the shoe on my smaller foot tends to fall off. These shoes have slightly more coverage than a regular pump and have stayed on marvelously thus far. Love the fun colorful design. Fairly comfy too.

IN LOVE! I have short wide feet (6 D). These are adorable (they look pink, white, and blue, but also have green), they have a comfortable insole, and the heels aren't too high so they are also comfortable for walking. I will wear them to dress up jeans, with white or black pants/skirts, and a hot pink, white, green, or black top. Very versatile!
