Women's Remy High Heel Ghillie Lace-up shoes
Love the muted cordovan color. Shoes look amazing on, even with minor bit of toe cleavage. I normally need a 10W, but these are comfy in 10M. Very happy with this classy, stylish pair of shoes!

true to size
These shoes are so comfortable and the leather footbed is so nice. Runs true to size. I was surprised that the top of the shoe wouldn't tie completely closed. I am not overweight and do not have wide or chubby feet and there is at least a 1 inch gap where you can see the laces criss cross between the leather sides. It doesn't bother me much but it's something to note.

I wanted to love them and keep them but . . .
They felt wonderful on. But as I inspected them more closely, I thought the construction looked less than Lands End quality. Yep, they're Chinese. Besides, the suede was already showing wear right out of the box. I did not expect to get more than a couple of days of wear before they started looking shabby. I did brush them a little to see if the flat spots would recover, but they didn't.
Make this shoe in Italy in smooth, kid leather and I will cheerfully pay $200+, I promise!

Not quite what I expected
Having read all the reviews before I bought, I was a little disappointed when I received them. They were smaller than I had expected them to be although I bought them in my size. The side of the shoes where the insole meets the shoe has an edge which I could feel even through my tights but I think an insole insert should fix the discomfort there. And lastly, the soles were pretty non-grip even on a carpetted floor so I haven't even dared to wear them into the streets. Some work has to be done and it will mean a trip to the cobbler to have non-slip pads fixed to the soles. Having said all these, it is still a very pretty pair of shoes and it is too inconvenient for me to return them, so I will have to improvise if I want to wear them.

These are the cutest, sexiest shoes I have seen on Land's End to date. They run a tad big in the length but the top of the show where the ties are is a tad tight but not enough to complain about. I have a normal to narrow foot. I bought them in 2 colors and hope the black comes back in my size. Although the heel looked too high when I first saw them, they are appear to be comfortable.

Very Comfortable for the Heel Height
I ordered these shoes because they were on sale and looked cute. I got the Cordovan colour which is really a light burgundy. The colour was quite versatile and matches a lot of my wardrobe. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable they are given the height of the heel. The first day I wore them all day at work without any concern or sore feet by days end. The heel is sturdy as well and supports well. I wouldn't wear them out walking down the street for several blocks, but I wouldn't do that with any 3 inch heel. They are great for the office all day or for an evening out. Very good quality and the fit was great. I wear a regular size 8 and it was true to size. Worth getting to add to your shoe wardrobe.

Pretty, but may not work for me
I really want to love this shoe. Unfortunately, I just can't get over the 3" heel. I don't normally wear very high heels, but would like to. I had hoped that this would be an exception (based on the reviews). It is well padded and nicely constructed, but I still feel like I am "teetering". I'm going to try a little more around the house to see if I can get used to these, otherwise will have to return them. I got the tan ones and I think they are very attractive.

I have been wearing these to work as well as to special events and have gotten loads of compliments. These are such a special pair of heels, and for having a 3" inch, it's still remarkably comfortable and easy to walk in. The cushioning is really great. I got the tan color, and I am normally between a 7 and a 7.5 and got the 7.5. They fit perfectly, although there is some toe cleavage if that bothers you. I'd say only order a size up if you are between half-sizes. I originally wanted a pair of ghillie heels after seeing that the character Evie in The Mummy wore them in black! So I feel like the heroine of an action/adventure/romance movie when I wear them.

beautiful but too high
I love these shoes, they are exactly what I want in every way, except that they are an inch too high. If Lands End made the very same shoe with two inch heel, many more people would want them, including me. They are beautiful and well made, interior very comfortable. Please - some slightly lower heels!

Sexy and comfortable - winning combo
These are sexy librarian shoes. Excellent quality and super comfy, in spite of the heel! Bought the cordovan version and they are absolutely lovely. I'm planning to wear them with fun tights, a pencil skirt and a twin set. Classic but with a bit of an edge.
