International (Made in Japan)

Reasonably good grip on heel and not too much squeeze in toe box. Nice heel height (1 1/2”).

2” heel. Nice fit and really good for bunions. The fabric over the bunion area gives to allow extra room.

Vaneli Dank Cap Toe Pump

I was not able to find where these shoes are made but they are distributed by Wolff Shoe Co. These also have a nice fit in the heel and toe box. The heel is about 2 1/4” high and the shoe nicely padded. They were just slightly shallow for my high arched foot but would work well for a mild flat foot,

Beautifeel (Made in Israel)

These may be my new favourite brand of pumps! They have an all around good fit and comfortable foot bed. The heels all feel stable.


I love these!! The heel fits snugly. The toe box is adequate. The heel is very stable and measures 2 1/2”. The foot bed is comfortably cushioned. These are definitely my number one contender. These would likely fit well for bunions.

These were also surprisingly comfortable. The heel height is 2 3/4”, slightly higher than I would normally wear, but they really didn’t feel that high nor did I feel unstable, even with the narrower heel. I didn’t like the fit quite as much as I liked the Calla, but it was still worth considering and a strong second choice. These would probably work well with bunions.

Fizz Reen (Made in Japan)

This a brand I had never heard of and could find little information on other than it comes from Japan. The heel height was 1 1/2” and was stable the straps were not binding and I felt secure in the shoe. I would have liked slightly more coverage on the sides. These may be a problem for bunions but would be good for a dorsal bunion (bump at the top of the big toe joint.
