I love these shoes!! My feet have bunions, hammertoes and arthritis so for so many years I had given up on any kind of heel. These are made of kid leather, are well made and very comfortable. I'll be wearing these to my daughter's wedding. Walking Cradles has become my new favorite shoe maker. And Zappo's is absolutely wonderful!

I bought these so that I would have comfortable shoes for a conference I was attending that included lots of walking. They did not disappoint! Cute and soooo comfortable and light weight. Get them!!!

My feet: length matches size 6.5 dead on. Wide sizes are always too wide. Regular widths often are too tight around the wide higher-archy area just before the toes. And/or at my pinky toes. Pumps and flats often/usually create massive blisters on the backs of my heels. And after an ankle injury a few years ago, I had to toss all my cute herels — i now require a minimum level of comfort, stability, and support. These shoes fit perfectly. Zero break-in time. The leather stretches to cradle my feet, without misshaping. And while these are not “sneakers” comfortable, nor parivularly cushiony, they are surprisingly comfortable. For the first day in ages, my feet weren’t swollen and my ankles weren’t pain after a day of wearing pumps at my office. I definitely recommend: much more comfy than the Borns I also purchased (which have that heel blister problem, and will need some breaking in to be wide enough above my toes.)

Unfortunately I'm sending these shoes back. They look pretty in the box and on, but they have absolutely no support, and the padding they have on the insole doesn't cover the whole foot pad, and my toes sorely need that as the bottom of the shoe is very thin. This shoe won't work for our wet NW weather and too expensive to not deliver.

These are wonderful! The heel makes walking as stable as any pair of standard walking shoes, yet the front looks like a high heel. As someone who hasn't worn high heels in years, I find these completely comfortable!

I wore these shoes to a wedding and had them on for about 12 hours straight. I have never been so comfortable. Not once did I have a problem with my feet. I have a slightly wide foot and the wide was perfect !

This shoe truly lives up to its brand name: Walking Cradles. I have trouble with the fit in some shoes due to a bunion/hammer toe issues. I did order this shoe in a 1/2 size larger (9W vs. 8 1/2 W) and it fit beautifully with no pressure on my feet. Very comfortable and the style was great for slacks and going out to dinner. I have had success with other Walking Cradles shoes - they are my go-to brand for fit and comfort!

I love wearing these shoes! I work in a business casual office, and I get lots of compliments on my outfit when I wear these shoes. They work especially well with black tights and skirt or with skinny-leg ankle pants. These shoes are very comfortable for walking around the office and for working at my standing desk.

I have two bunions, wide feet but yet narrow heels and find it very difficult finding stylish comfortable shoes so I wasn't holding out much hope when I ordered these but I took a chance. I ordered my usual 8M......wide shoes never worked for me because not only are they wide in the width but they are wide all over and a little longer in length as well so I always just stick with the mediums........ but I will tell you that these shoes in the medium width are nothing like any other medium I have had in the past.....they are on the wider side which is fabulous for me. Anyway, when they arrived and I first opened the box and saw how attractive looking they were I was only praying they would fit and feel good on my feet. Wow!! I was in total shock because not only were they beautiful but they didn't bother my huge bunions and they felt great as well!! They are as soft as butter and there's no digging into the bunions. I ordered the black micro and they are stunning! The one inch heel is the perfect sweet spot for us gals who have problematic feet. It gives us that little "lift" that we all love becauses it makes us feel stylish and feminine but yet our feet are happier for the lower heel rather than suffering in a higher heel. If you suffer with foot issues I highly recommend giving these a try. In fact I will be coming back for another pair real soon. So happy I found Walking Cradles!

The third time's the charm. After returning two previous orders because they were too narrow, this shoe is perfect. I love that Zappos offers free shipping each way. It is so hard to find a retail outlet that offers good quality EE shoes.

I ordered these shoes for comfort, the color and the low heel. And they delivered all of that plus they look really attractive on my foot. I have walked about 2 miles each time I have worn them and have no pressure points, or redness on my feet. They are not loose either. Fit like a glove is the best description. I will seek this brand out again

Looking younger than my years and having an inner ear issue that causes slight balance issues, I have been desperately searching for a heel for the office that looks stylish but still offers stability when walking. I have a slender foot but not quite a size narrow so I struggle to find a shoe that fits in the length and the width. The beginnings of a bunion complicates things. I love Zappos because you can order as many pairs of shoes you want, and return them, at no cost to you. And I have done so! I finally have found my dream shoe in the Walking Cradles Heidi. Although I wish the heel were a little higher, it does not feel like a flat and from the front and top views looks very much like a traditional pump. As soon as I finish this review, I will be searching to see what other colors I might order. Tip: When a shoe fits, I buy it in multiple colors. To add a little variation I go to Michaels craft store where I buy adhesive embellishments meant for art projects. I just peel off the back and stick it onto the top of the shoe and it looks like it has been there all along. They do not damage the leather and if you decide you don't like it, you just pull it off. They stay on for months if not years.

Was hopeful these would work, but no go. Needed arch support and wide width at toe for bunions but the W width shoe is wide from toe to heel and has no arch support, so am returning. It probably would work well for someone with an overall wide foot. Onward and forward!

I am usually a perfect size 7.5, medium width. The fit on these shoes was a little off. The toe box was a little tight, and the heel was too loose. I could probably put a gel pad in the heel and make it work, except for one really big negative: I ordered navy blue leather, and they are not blue at all. They look black. At first I thought they had sent me the wrong color. I held them up to a pair of black shoes, and they look the same. I took them out in the sunlight and could see a slight blue tint, so it wasn't the wrong shoes. I can't imagine who would even buy that color - why not just get black if they are going to look black anyway? Very disappointed - I have been searching all over for NAVY shoes for work and they are hard to find. See photo - these shoes are on the right, and a pair of other black shoes on the left.

I was really looking forward to this shoe, because I needed a comfortable work shoe for the office while not sacrificing aesthetics. I bought it in nude patent in my usual size, 4 M. When I first put on the shoe, the toe bed was too snug. Patent leather is something that is hard to stretch. Keep in mind, I have small feet so if I went up the shoe will slip off. Unfortunately, there was no wide available. My feet are usually size M and never wide. You may need to size half a size up if you are size M.

These weren't for me. I do have high arches but felt nothing in terms of support. I would call the color more off white than bone but the my screen representation was true to the color they are.

I love the shape of these shoes. Elegant and comfortable. Just right amount of heal. Got a lot of compliment. I will buy these again and again.

These are very pretty and felt good. They were just a 1/2 size too big. Will reorder in smaller size.

Being 77, it isn't easy to find just the right shoe. After sending 2 pairs with small heels back I read all the reviews very carefully and decided to order these. They are perfect for me and feel a little big but not a whole size. After wearing for a time my feet swell up so they do fit. I'm happy to find this shoe.

Great basic pump with almond toe and low heel. Very comfortable. Definitely runs 1/2 size large.

My foot is wide at the front, and these shoes fit well. Though the heel is quite low, they look like a dressy pump when I wear them. Very comfortable.
