This is my second pair of these shoes. I love them so much that I had to buy a spare. Although they are high, they are super comfortable and you feel secure in them (that is, if you're used to 5" plus shoes). I got the all cork ones and they really look great with maxi dresses or skinny jeans. The cork is really cool and looks almost nude. Love them!

I purchased these shoes to wear on Mothers Day and although they are very pretty and I got a lot of compliments the design of the chunky hill made it impossible to walk in. I assume the hill would be similar to wearing a wedge shoe(NOT)... While walking the bulky hill made me feel like I was going to fall over, in other words my posture was bent. The color is fabulous, very stylish shoe and looks sexy on the foot. I would probably only recommend this shoe if your going to be sitting a lot.

Earthies Ensenada Runs short and narrow

Reviewer: SIR from Texas
I tried the Earthies Ensenada in the black calf, unsuccessfully. I have a slightly wide foot, but wear shoes in a medium width. Yet this shoe was tight, both at the toe and the instep. I do not have a high instep. Also, I wear an 8.5 or 9 shoe, ordered the 9, and they are too short. I squeezed my toes into the too narrow toe area, reached the front of the shoe, and could only barely zip up the back zipper on the shoe. From my experience, this shoe is a half size short, but these are my first Earthies brand. I couldn't appreciate the arch support because the arch of the shoe was too far forward for my foot. Basically nothing about this shoe works for me, and I returned them.To those considering a purchase, I call attention to the shape of the toe area; it is pointed. My feet are a bit more square at the toe.
Lava Shoes Prevue very comfortable

When I received these shoes, my first impression was that the quality was not great. They felt cheap, and one shoe had four buckle holes while the other had five. Of course I needed the fifth hole to have a snug fit so once I decided to keep the shoes, I simply made the last hole myself. It was well worth it! I had ordered one half size larger than I normally wear due to the online recommendation, and these shoes ended up being so comfortable, I wore them for seven hours with no discomfort! All the other ladies had to remove their high heels, but I didn't! I look forward to wearing them again.

Jessica Simpson Evette Taller than description

This shoe is beautiful, but it was not what I was expecting in heel height. The description says 4 1/2" inch heel, but I measured and it's a full 5 1/2". It does have a 1 1/2" platform. I wish I could keep my pair because I think they are gorgeous, but they're too tall for me. I'm returning them.
