Vince Camuto – Jaynita

3” spike heel

Fairly soft leather. Heel grip is adequate. Soft under the ball of foot. Overall a generally good fit and recommended if you like a spike heel. I felt a bit unstable. Fits big.


Ted Baker – Vyixyn

3” spike heel

Ouch! Leather is hard and no grip on heel. Shallow over instep.


Jeffrey Campbell – Cyrille

3 1/2” stacked heel

Too high for me but reasonably comfortable with a bit of heel slippage. Go down a half size!


Ferragamo – Talla

3” spike heel

Hard leather which painfully squeezed my toes. Heel placement is good so that i didn’t feel unstable, but I was dying to get these off!


Chloe – Lauren Pump

2 1/4” block heel

Very shallow. A very soso fit and feel. Very shallow and loose in the instep area.


Prada – Pointy Toe Pump

3 1/2” spike heel

These are beautiful to look at but I found the leather hard and the heel grip poor. Size down 1/2 size.



Michael Kors – Abbi

3” heel

Good heel grip and fairly soft leather but shallow instep and a bit of a squeeze in the toes. Overall, not bad.


Michael Kor – Paloma

4” stacked heel

Generally comfortable but the heel was too high for me and the heel slipped a bit. Quite pretty though.


Lewit – Carita

3 3/4” spike heel

Good support in arch but unstable heel and a real pain to put on…but pretty:)


Halogen – Azaela

3” spike heel

Very pretty and inexpensive. Really good heel grip and very comfortable. This was an unexpected and pleasant surprise.


Pour la Victoire – Cece

                          – Celina

4” stacked heel

Sloppy fit in heel so found myself sliding into the toe box. It was hard to assess whether the toe box would have been comfortable. Both styles have the same upper with slightly different shaped heel. The Celina is pictured below. The Cece has a round heel.



Marc Fisher – Zala

3” block heel

Good, stable heel. Toe box surprisingly comfortable. A bit shallow at instep and wish the heel fit slightly snugger. Size down 1/2 size.



Hispanitas – Connie

2 1/2” block heel

Fairly comfortable and felt stable. A bit too soft in the heel counter.



Paul Green – Nicolette

3 1/2” spike heel

A great fit and surprisingly comfortable despite the heel height. The strap adds security. I generally don’t like the look of velcro straps but you really can’t tell. The only draw back to this shoe is that you wouldn’t want to wear it with stockings. I tried it on both with and without and found I was sliding around a lot with stocking.


Ron White – Cadence

3” spike heel

Really good fit and surprisingly comfortable for this heel height. Canadian designer. Made in Italy.
