These are My second pair of LIFESTRIDE! After trying on mulitple pairs of black pumps for a job that requires them at all times while working, no other brand has lived up to the comfortability and quality of Life Stride. I love these shoes because there is no need to “break them in” in hopes they will become more comfortable over time. These are perfectly comfortable straight out of the box! My first pair were rounded toe so now that work started up again I came back to order directly for the pointed toe version for a classier more elongated look. I’m so happy with these and they will remain my go to company for pumps. I can live in these, stand up and walk around all day long with no slipping or sore feet! Life Stride truly takes the guess work out of shopping for pumps.
