Rated 3 out of 5Â by TracyS Gorgeous, but not the most comfortable
These shoes are as pretty in real life as they are on line. Unfortunately, the ankle strap dug into the top back part of my ankle as the leather is a bit hard. Since they hurt right away I sadly returned them. I am 5'0, so perhaps a person with a longer leg might have better luck with the high cut in the back.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by hrtanthro beautiful but...
I wear a size 7.5 in flats and normally a 7 in heels. I ordered a 7 in these shoes, and that was the correct size. The shoes are comfortable. And yes, they are really very pretty. The quality is nice too. Two things that bothered me.
1. the front part of the shoe was narrow and i could for see this being a problem if i were wearing it longer than a dinner out. I don't have wide feet, just normal.
2. the back strap felt odd. I think another reviewer mentioned this. I felt like it was pinching my back ankle.
So despite how lovely they are, I'm going to return them.
oh and the holes in the strap for this particular pair were not punched all the way as another reviewer mentioned as well.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by njoytoday ORDER THESE two tone gems NOW
Two tone shoes in black / nude / camel are always sophisticated classics that span far beyond this year's 'current'. This particular pair happens to be on trend for FALL 2012 due to the ankle strap. (I gasped in horror at this trend because ankle straps are tricky! Far too often they visually shorten the leg - and let's be honest, most of us prefer to appear longer, taller and quite frankly, more slender :).
What is ABSOLUTELY PEFECT about these color block gems is that the nude patent is at the heel and strap so VOILA! The illusion of long lean legs is not only maintained but personified! Both inner and outer sides of the shoe have the d'orsay cut out that is simply sexy. The effect leaves the illusion of the black patent toe stepping forward on it's own, falling gracefully between an almond and point shape. I appreciate that Schutz provided enough coverage that there is no awkward toe cleavage.
These shoes are gorgeous! 5 stars. I believe they look more expensive than the actual price point. I gave the quality 4 stars simply bc I had to push open the hole on one ankle strap manually.
I am size 9 and found them perfectly TRUE TO SIZE.
