These are very stylish shoes, but they are incredibly uncomfortable. They do not provide much arch support and tight in the toes!

These shoes are stunningly beautiful, but by far the most uncomfortable pair of heels I have ever worn. The heel height is good but the pitch of the instep is very high.

Exceptionally beautiful shoes! The texture and color are perfect. I am a true six and had to size down to a five and a half for the correct fit.

Cute shoe. Comfort good, but not great for me. My arches are high and these shoes have no support whatsoever.

These shoes are fabulous. I was on my feet all day at a wedding and they were super comfortable. I am very picky about comfort and heel size and these were perfect.

Just received these shoes in the black snake print. I was worried that it might be a little too big, but luckily they are true to size and my heel doesn't slide out. Sometimes I have to size down a half size for a more snug fit (Calvin Klein Whinnie), but these are definitely a true 6.5. Not the most comfortable heel, but too gorgeous and classic to give up.

Classic Black Pump! The style of this shoe is timeless -- A nice, high heel, but classy. My husband loves these, but he doesn't have to wear them! I don't wear heels this high more than a few times a year, and I dread wearing these to functions where I know I'll have to stand continually for over 2 hours. Look great, but ouch! I ordered a half-size larger than I usually wear.

Very lovely shoe. I ordered a 7.5 which is what I normally wear. It felt a half size larger so I put in a shoe insert and now it fits great. The arch support is moderate and the heel feels higher than indicated. Overall a very nice neutral colored shoe.

True to size but cut is shorter than in photos. A very beautiful shoe in terms of quality. I bought a size 6 which is consistent with most other 6s. The only downside of this shoe is the top toe cover area is shallower than it appears which means about 1/4 to 1/3 inch of toe line is showing which I don't particularly like.

I wanted to love these shoes. The nude color is perfect. The height is perfect. However, the top part of the shoe (where toe cleavage shows) looks cheap, but it's not generously cut. It looks like a Nine West shoe, which is fine, but not for this price.

Ouch. I put these on the second they were out of the box, and could barely stand in them. I have a very high arch, and it actually stuck out of this shoe - so much so my husband commented on it. No arch support. Otherwise, very cute.

These are gorgeous. They fit well, are the perfect heel height, and quite comfortable (as far as 4" heels with no cushioning go). Both the patent and suede look/feel expensive (as they should). If they were about half the price I would easily buy three pairs.

GORGEOUS shoe, and surprisingly comfortable for 4 inches (I am a bit flat-footed, just FYI). It is snug in the toes, but not too tight. I get so many compliments on these!

I don't understand the reviews about these shoes being uncomfortable. I guess it depends on your foot. I own these pumps in 5 colors because they not only look fantastic but are so comfortable! The placement of the heel is perfectly balanced and makes them easy to walk in and the toe area doesn't pinch. I just ordered a new pair in black suede because I wear the ones i have so often i wanted to have a backup pair in case they went out of stock.

The shoes are gorgeous -- and look like they cost much more than they do. I can easily wear them with designer clothes. They are my go-to pumps for fall. Wear them a few times inside in order to break them in. They run true to size for me, but I have a wide foot.

These shoes for me were incredibly comfortable. I was afraid to buy these shoes because of the comments but I am glad that I did. They are worth every penny. I have slightly wide feet with narrow heels which makes these shoes perfect for me because they are pointed toed and the heels were tight enough so that my feet did not slip out, but not uncomfortably tight. These shoes are perfect for my feet (wider in front, narrower in the heel, and flat feet (fallen arches).

They are on the pricey side but they are Kate Spade shoes so you know you're getting excellent quality items. For me, it was worth getting because the pointed toe style fits my feet and it's better than buying three pairs of cheap average-looking shoes when I can have one classic elegant goes-well-with-everything pair of excellent quality shoes. They are true to size and I have narrow heels which causes my other shoes to slip off when I walk; however, with these shoes everything is awesome and nothing bad happens.

I love heels, but are not in them very often due to the type of work I do. Having not worn heels in a while I needed a pair for a night out to go with my LBD. I got these in the mail and the first thing I did was put them on and walk around. I didn't want to take them off! Comfortable, decent support and incredibly cute! Love these shoes, wish there were more options to order.

This shoe is beautiful however, not meant for long wear. I bought a grey pair and intended to wear them for a full day of work. After a couple of hours, they get uncomfortable. This is a pair I will carry, change into and wear for shorter periods of time. Still gorgeous though!

This shoe is so beautiful but crazy foot pain. I wore it for my sons wedding but could not tolerate it for the reception. If you are tough, go for it, but if you are sensitive to high heels, pick something with more support under the ball of the foot. My feet were on fire after an hour in these.

Gorgeous! These shoes made my head spin, they're so beautiful. I'm 5'4", so wear heels all the time when going out. These are high, but so hot. Thing is, I'm a size 9 and though the shoe length is right, the width of the ball is tight. My ball measures 3 3/4" side to side, and I had to pry the shoe open to get my foot in (hello, I'm one of Cinderella's evil sisters). They also shed a bit of glitter on first wear, so break them in outside your house.

Gorgeous silhouette but very uncomfortable. I wear high heels about 85% of the time so I'm quite used to wearing and walking (and sometimes running) in heels. However, these were monstrously uncomfortable due to the pitch of the heel and putting so much pressure on the ball of the foot. There is very little padding. I'm going to insert some additional foot pads because I love the look and want to be able to wear these at least for a few hours at a time.

Not often do I sacrifice comfort for style but these are an exception. Words cannot describe the beauty of these shoes! They are glamorous sophisticated and look like a million bucks. I have difficulty with pumps and heels without wedges so the discomfort factor may be more me than the shoes. But even for a girl with sensitive feet I can wear these for the length of my son's wedding. I just would not be able to throw these on with skinny jeans and head out to the mall. I wish that I could - these would be fabulous that way, too!
