Rated 5 out of 5 by TinyTootsies from Most comfortable high heels ever Originally bought these in Taupe Glory for my son's wedding. I wore them for 9 hours most of which was standing & walking. I forgot I was even wearing them. I had not "broken them in" prior to that day but they were easy to walk in with no slipping and yet I felt stylish and received several compliments -not bad when you are 66 and haven't worn heels in years! I was so pleased and ordered this second pair in black for future use. I could not believe a pair of shoes like this could be so comfortable. I normally even have trouble finding flats that are comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tweety79 from So comfortable.... aka running heels The most comfortable heels I have owned. I did have to go a 1/2 size up. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by PJ44 from Needed a little tweaking I love these shoes. However, I am glad I didn't need to wear them right away. The shoe was very stiff and somewhat rolled in across the top of the foot. It dug into my foot causing pain with every step. I could understand the discomfort if I had a wide foot, but I don't. After several failed attempts at wearing the shoes, I found a solution. I put on a pair of thick socks so the shoes wouldn't hurt my feet, made sure the part across the top of my foot was not rolling in, and wore them around the house for a couple hours. (As an added benefit, watching me walk around in shorts, socks and heels prompted fits of hysterical laughter from my children.) It reshaped them enough so they are now comfortable. I am hoping the pair I purchased was simply a lemon. I will probably purchase this shoe in another color and find out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mindi2 from Great shoe BUT Saw this shoe online and it looked great and got really good reviews. Although I never buy heels online I took a chance. The shoes look great and seem to be made well. HOWEVER they are a full size to small. I normally wear a size 7 and can not even put my foot in the bottom of the shoe. Also the toes are very pointed which did not help with the length issue. I might return them but will probably donate them as I hate to return items especially this time of year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StLouieSusan from A great wardrobe basic The navy pumps I ordered arrived all shiny and lovely. They are a little long, but nothing an achilles insert won't fix. These are perfect basic pumps for work or even dressier occasions. I appreciate the moderate heel and comfortable insole, as well as the color choices. The only change I would make would be to offer half sizes in the larger range for wide widths (I ordered an 11, would have preferred a 10.5). Also, a pointier toe would be more attractive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jules2u from Classic and Comfy I have quite a few pairs of Life Stride shoes. They are true to size and are sooo comfortable. I can wear them all day and not be sorry I did. I'm 52 and looking for stylish yet classic looks to be able to dress up or down. The color (Navy Blue) is nice and for anyone looking for American Auxiliary Parade marching, they are perfect. I also bought the green and light blue ones which are wickedly fun to wear. Awesome Go To Shoes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by periloo from Classic profile Love the color, the vamp & sides seem high off so that when I wear the shoe I feel like foot is being swallowed. It might not affect the profile, but it feels odd looking at my own feet. I'm going to be returning the pair, because I find that I have a tendency to walk a bit on the inside of my foot... & it feels like I'm walking on the edges of the sole, even though I tried on a Wide.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SonyB from Right value for the shoe These shoes are very comfortable. It is hard to find a shoe that truly looks Navy. I was looking for a solid navy pump not one that takes on a cloudy look as if the boldness of the color is not dominant. I found that shoe at Famous Footwear online, now I can wear a couple of the clothing items that match it perfectly.
