These are nice shoes but I don't love them. I did expect a silver shoe and while they do look a bit silvery from some angles, they look more gold than silver.
Also the inside of my left shoe wasn't embossed too well and they have some small black smudges and a bit of something that looks like glue. It sort of makes them look used when they're supposedly box-fresh.
They run really large too, yet pinch the the top of my feet toward the instep. I can barely keep them on my feet though. That's a weird combination of fit issues.
HOWEVER, the heel is a good height and size, not stiletto but not chunky. The toe is practically perfect, they're not too pointy and not too boxy. I also like the surplice-style wrap at the toe.
I feel that these are well designed but not quite as well made.

Albright Christen silver shoes
So comfortable, and I have wide feet, great color for all types of dresssing up or making a statement

I was looking for a silver shoe WITHOUT the shiny pointed toe look that most shoes have this season. Yes, I found it!! This pump is very nice and the color is a muted but noticeable silver, like the color of a nickel (coin). It slips off the heel a bit, but the toe box fits great so I will be getting a pad for the heel to remedy the slipping.
Really lovely pair of boots- they look very similar to the image. If anything differs, it would be the color of the heel.. appears a bit more reddish purple in real life than in the picture would suggest.
I usually don't wear shoes with a very tall heel, so perhaps that's partly the reason (could also be because I have wider feet), but these shoes were VERY uncomfortable the first day I wore them. So painful that I was about to try to return them the next day. But I decided to stick it out, and have worn them a few more times since then. While they still are not comfortable by any means, they're bearable... and worth it considering how cute and flattering they are. So if you're used to wearing heels or have narrower feet, then I'd say definitely go for it! But if either of those two statements don't apply to you, then you've been warned :)
But I'm still happy with my purchase and hope that with more wear they will become less uncomfortable!

The ad is not truthful about heel height. It is a 3 3/4" heel.
The fit is snug, so maybe order a size up, especially if you plan on wearing more than a stocking or tights with these boots.

Beautiful in real life, but I should have listened to the prior review and sized up. My normal 9.5 was a no-go; hoping the size 10s I exchanged for will work.
These shoes are so, so gorgeous. If you're as charmed by them online as I was, just wait until you see them in person! I bought a pair of the blue slippers in a 38, and they fit like a dream. I swore I was Cinderella as I put them on. The color in the photo is fairly accurate as they are a shimmery dusk blue with flecks of silver in them. Despite the fact that they are long and flat, they are pretty comfortable, although there is no sole support. In the 38, I have enough room to move my toes and my heels won't scrape and chafe at the back, but they're still snug on. I usually wear a US 7 in shoes, and I think had I gone down a size, these would have been too tight. More or less, I would say the 38s are true to size. The buckles have a really lovely sparkle and are fastened securely to the top, and the little bit of gold gives flair without seeming gaudy. Really, take advantage of the sale and buy these little gems! They are truly elegant, and are probably the loveliest pair of shoes I own.

This is the best shoe ever and very comfortable fits true to size. Even more beautiful in person
Beautiful pair of heels that are unbelievably comfortable. I bought them because I needed more professional shoes and these are beyond satisfying for my first pair of heels :) definitely worth every cent, and is even more worthwhile purchasing with the sale price!

Very comfortable and stylish
Excellent color, very comfortable. Wore them all night on NYE. Hopefully they last a long time b/c I plan on wearing them to every event I can.
Bought both colors, comfy fit. A unique look you don't see coming and going. Have to see these on to really appreciate them. They receive compliments galore!! I typically wear them with a skinny jean, cuffed. The longer laces allow for versatility. LOVE THEM!

as comfortable as running shoes
These run a touch small - I'm generally between a 7 to a 7.5 and I went with an 8 for these. These are truly far better in person - the materials are beautiful and well crafted. The laces are very very long which I find odd but other than that, I can't wait for spring. The slightly lower cut at the front gives a great leg line also.
These are the most comfortable heel I think I have ever put on! Gorgeous. Can dress up..or dress down with jeans. in love with these. Waited for them to go on sale and snagged them immediately. Great purchase.

definately recommend it!
This shoes are not only cute but so comfortable. I've been trying on many other brands but these heels can't beat in compfyness. Very well made. Cushion on the ball of the feet so it gives a good support.
I love these boots, even though I returned mine. They were so cute on and had a very vintage look to them. I did not read the description well and was hoping there was a zipper. While the ties at the top of the boots offer plenty of room to get in and out of them, I prefer quick and easy off, especially since I travel a lot.

I love these boots but wasn't sure if they would work for me since I am only 5'1". Just received them in the mail and the length is fine but sadly my calves are too chubby. They're a little difficult to put on because there's no zipper but the natural color is really cute ... I only wish I could shrink my calves somehow. I'm able to get my legs in the boots but there's a slit below the ties in the back and they pull open showing my calves peaking through :( They are unfortunately, going back.
