This shoe was just what I needed. It was dressy, sleek, just enough sparkle, and feminine. I wore it all night dancing. Didn't have tired feet at the end of the night.

I love these shoes. I bought them for a wedding and they were super comfortable (I did put bandaids on my heels as a preemptive strike). I wear them to work too. I did go up half a size based on other reviews and it was a good call; they would have been too small if I ordered my normal size.

These sandals fit great, and look great. However, after wearing them for half a day, the heels started making a loud popping noise! I took them to a shoe repair man, and he said that the heels are made of plastic, not rubber. It seems the manufacturer only filled them around the edges, rather than also in the middle, and he was able to easily replicate the noise by hand. He thought he could drill a hole in them and fill them (for another $20) with the hope that the noise would stop but there was no guarantees, and for this price, I couldn't take a chance that after that they couldn't be returned. So sadly, back they go! Vaneli, what were you thinking?

Really a cute shoe, but the heel is deceiving in the picture. It is very different, and I would recommend a half a size larger (or get both sizes to see which looks best). You don't want your own heel hanging over this very unusual heel, which you can't see this from the picture. I thought of keeping the shoes, but in the end, they were just not great for walking. Maybe on another foot.

Buyers beware! These are beautiful shoes, and I was so excited that they fit me. I noticed the first time that I took them off that the soles were paper thin but I assumed that they must be some super sturdy rubber that was indestructible. When I took them off the second time I wore them, the heel on the left shoe had already split and a piece of it was hanging by a thread. If you have these shoes and want to keep them, take them to a shoe repairman immediately and have the heels fortified. Mine are going back!

I love these shoes! They are so stylish and comfortable that I now own two pairs in red and black. I would recommend ordering 1/2 size larger than usual. dMy friends have often complimented me on these shoes.

After several tries of wearing this shoe around the house it is not as comfortable as I would like. The foot bed it not padded enough other than that the N fit is good.

Love this wedge. Yes, I did have to return for one-half size larger but Had to have this gorgeous wedge! I wear it with dress jeans and a sweater - Wow! Totally recommend this beautiful, mid-heel wedge.

Cutest shoe! But the toe cutout is "sharp", and the toebox was too tight. The balls of my feet were killing me after 30 seconds. No arch support.

Bow and toe box give a very 'squared' look to the front of the shoe. vamp hits bunion area so not good for me.

This shoe is very nice looking, but runs narrow. Even though I ordered a wide, it was tight across the toe box and where the vamp is cut. But a larger size would be too long. So, this one needs to go back.

These I will keep because they are cute and moderately comfortable. I am usually a 9.5 or 10 and the ten is just a hair too big. The back heal is a bit unstable. Also, they are very slippery out of the box. I may resole them. I will keep them for days where my walking is minimal.

This sandal is wonderful. I bought these sandals in a black smooth leather from Zappos a few seasons ago, and wear them all the time in the summer. Now I need another pair - the customer assistance lady says that more are coming soon! These stylish sandals are very comfortable, the leather is soft and the heel height is perfect! I have gotten several compliments and people wanting to know where they can get a pair - Zappos, of course. I appreciate VanEli for making classy looking sandal in larger sizes (11+), and especially appreciate Zappos for making the larger sizes available!

This is a very cute pair of shoes that simply do not fit me. The white patent and see-through vinyl make this fine for summer wear and the flat heel would be good for walking. The problem is the fit. I wear a 7-7.5 M-W shoe. In the 7.5W this shoe is long with a big gap in the back of the heel and is quite loose in the midsection. The toe box is quite narrow because of its pointed shape. Unfortunately, the insole is not removable so it fits only a half-sized orthotic. This is quite disappointing because this is a beautiful shoe.

This is a pretty and a dainty shoe. Unfortunately, with my flat feet, the shoes allow my feet to pronate too much. The AA width is tight for even me, and I thought a B would be too wide. Glad I had the chance to see/try this shoe in person.

Really cute, super comfortable good all-around shoes. Can dress up or down. I loved them from the minute I put them on!

Love this shoe! Having a narrow foot is a challenge, when looking for shoes that fit. I love the heel size. It's a perfect size for day or evening. I have these shoes in about 3 of 4 colors. Keep the 2 1/4 heel and we'll keep buying!

Short in the toebox and uncomfortable. The front part of the shoe comes up so far up on my foot it makes my already size 13 feet look like skis.

I was disappointed in the fit -there was no arch support for my high arch and the left shoe felt unstable (why I do not know). I have always liked the fir of Vaneli.

Too short. Too narrow. I have re-ordered a half size larger than my forever size. I LOVE the style, but I was shocked by the small fit. Fingers crossed that a half size up will be perfect.

Darling shoe and very comfortable. After knee replacement surgery I had to find a dressy shoe with a low heel. These are perfect. Both my husband and son in law thought they were attractive. I wear a 7.5 wide, and they fit very well. Lots of support for the foot and comfortable in the toe area right out of the box.
