I love this shoe. Love it. I have extremely wide feet and very high arches. Specifically, they are wide across the balls of my feet/my toes. A lot of wide shoes
are still too narrow. And I am always looking for a sexy, tall heel that comes in a size wide enough to feel comfortable. Cole Haan
finally did it! (I know I only gave them 4 stars for comfort...but what heel can you really give a 5 for comfort?!) I bought these and a pair of Stuart Weitzman
, both 8.5W in black patent. The Stuart Weitzman
pair still felt very narrow. These ones were pretty comfy! After wearing them out a couple times a month, they have stretched out a bit and are a tad large (mostly in length), but that happens with any leather shoe after you've broken them in. They did feel a little tight when I first got them, and I don't think I could have gone 1/2 size down, so I will probably just put a pad in the heel to keep
them snug. I'd like to buy them in black non-patent leather, in which case I might try the size 8 and then have them stretched. (I tried to get these ones stretched but the shoe guy said it's not a good idea to stretch patent leather because the vinyl coating might pucker.) If you have wide feet, these are the pumps for you. Now if only they were always in stock in every color! It seems every time I want to buy a pair of the red ones, they are out of stock!
