I was looking for a pair of classic pumps in a neutral color that I could stand in for more than five minutes without my feet feeling like they were going to fall off. These shoes
met all my requirements. They are super comfortable, but don't look too dowdy because of the platform. My foot feels stabilized in the shoe, which is a must since I needed shoes
I could wear for a long period of time without being uncomfortable.
The shape of the toe is perfect. It's not too pointy or too rounded, just that perfect happy medium between pointy and rounded. These shoes
are very similar in style to the L.K. Bennett shoes
that Duchess Catherine has made so famous, although they're probably not as high-heeled as hers are (Hey, I don't mind admitting stealing style tips from her.).
I can wear these shoes
with most anything that my black Nine West
pumps (very similar to these) won't go with, and I've gotten compliments on this shoe every time I've worn it. Everyone wants to know where I purchased them. If you've never purchased Anne Klein shoes
before, know that these are great quality shoes
. I am very pleased with the quality and construction of the shoe. A great buy for a shoe that will never go out of style.
Size note: I usually wear a 6.5 in dress shoes
and that size fit perfectly in these shoes
. They do stretch ever so slightly after you wear them, so keep
that in mind when you first try them on. I tried the 6.5 and the 7. The 6.5 was slightly snug when I first put them on, but after wearing them for a while they seemed to stretch just enough. Now they are a perfect fit.
