I have purchased these LifeStride shoes in Taupe Glory and am very satisfied with my purchase. The color is a bit lighter than expected but I have gotten several compliments on them. They are extremely comfortable, and the height is great for every day work wear yet a little lower than most heels out there today. They are extremely neutral and go with almost anything.I have a lot of problems with heels and am happy to find a comfortable yet professional looking heel that is age appropriate and affordable.
I order a size 10 in a wide width. Since just having a baby two months ago, my feet are a little wider than normal so my regular width shoes are not fitting well. I figured ordering a wide width would be perfect. These look really nice with my dress pants so I wore them to work one day. Boy am I glad that I had an extra pair of shoes at work! By the fourth hour, my feet were screaming at me. The toe area is snug so my pinky toes were rubbing and blistering. The vamp was digging into my foot as well. Now, I only wear them for a couple hours at a time (i.e. for meetings at work). I did just buy another pair of wide widths of a different shoe at a local store and haven't had any issues, so I don't know if this brand runs small or what.
