Women's Ashby Essential High Heel Shoes
Not very comfortable
I bought these because I read reviews of how comfortable these were. After wearing them for a day at work the balls of my feet hurt terribly. I was hoping to have a some "every day heels" with these pumps, but I don't think that is going to work for me.

Sweet potato is such a great color
I ordered these in size 10, Sweet potato. I wanted something with color to pop my winter wardrobe and this is it. The color is just enough different than a traditional tan suede to be noticed, but still a great neutral that goes with everything. They are a little snug in the toebox (but I have long toes), but since these are all leather, I am sure they will conform just fine. They are not so tight in the toe that they are uncomfortable. The shoe is plenty wide (I have an average width foot and it is just a little wider than average) and the heel is comfortable too. The height is just fine (I am 5'8") - I can walk comfortably and they look really nice on.

Perfect Style, But Very Stiff
I really wanted to like these shoes because I love their style. I bought them on sale in black. I was so excited that they are as cute on as they are in the photo. Unfortunately the leather is SO stiff that I was afraid to wear them because of the blisters they would cause.

I fell in love with the yellow color. Ordered half size up than my usual boot size. And sized perfectly. Would like to have it in all possible colors. Disappointed that is no red/blue/navy/turquoise colors. If my size will be back in stock, will order it in gray and tan.

Comfortable and fashionable
I have all 4 colors and I get compliments every time I wear them. The heel height is a little higher than I normally wear (I'm 5'8" without heels, so I don't need any help in the height department) but they are so comfortable that they feel like a much lower heel. I can wear them all day at work (desk job, so I'm not on my feet all that much) and then a stop at the grocery store on the way home, and no problems. I have a hard time wearing any of my other heels anymore because these are so comfortable. They are holding up well, too. I absolutely love them.

Poor quality leather
So disappointed. I got this shoe in black and thought it looked so nice! The leather is stiff, and it is off balance. I had to shift my weight to walk normally. I am used to wearing heels, so that is not the issue. Construction is poor. So sad Now it's hit or miss. Will return shoes.
I still shop here for many things, but will think twice before purchasing shoes.

I got this in a 6.5 - black and the fit is perfect and they seem comfortable. It's good leather and at the sale price is worth every penny. I am not certain how comfortable they will be to wear all day, but overall, they seem well made.

Sweet Potato is a beautiful color
I ordered these not knowing about the sweet potato color, and I love it! It is very stylish. The shoes are so comfortable I am ordering two more pair. I wear a size 11 and these fit great!

I bought LE ballet flats last year and they were about a full size too big. Seeing others say they bought this shoe in their reg size, I thought I'd give them a try. So glad I did. My left foot is an 8, my right an 8 1/2, so I order 8 1/2's and add an insert in my left shoe. Voila! Works in these just like my old heels.
It's been a while since I've worn heels, so I'm wearing these at home to "practice." I've had them on for about four hours and they feel pretty good and the construction is great. The suede is super soft and not very thick. Almost like "barely" suede. The color is deep, rich wine. I've never had shoes with the rounded toe; I've always had the pointier shape. But I can easily get used to these. If you're debating trying these, order your usual size and you should do fine. If I can be comfortable after 4 hours and not wearing heels for a few years, no doubt you will too.
