These shoes look at little old fashioned to me. They were too big and the buckle on the side will not allow you to shorten the heel strap. The far side of the buckle is stiff and gradually grows in width, meaning you can extend the strap to make it longer but you can not use the shortest holes to make the strap tighter across the heel. I odered the red pair, the color is great if you can get one that fits.

This boot is so cute to look at but fit my foot in some really weird way. The heel slipped up and down and it pinched across the toes. The really odd looking part was the front of the boot. They looked like the toes were pointing outward. Just not what I was hoping for. I’ll be returning these.

I love these boots! I have never mail ordered boots before but they fit extremely well on my wide feet. Really pleased so I’ve ordered a different pair of Walking Cradles hoping they fit just s well

These are very comfortable shoes. They aren’t too “old lady” looking and I really can walk and stand for long periods of time in them. A great, basic black pump that is totally practical.

I have a narrow foot and find it very hard to find shoes that fit and are comfortable--these shoes are terrific! Enough heel to feel dressy, but not wobbly on an old lady! Love the look!

I am hereby giving up my search for the perfect pair of boots on Zappos. I love Zappos, and I buy almost all my shoes from them....but boots? No. I give up. There is something wrong with every pair I've tried (and I've tried at least half a dozen pairs), and it's usually a problem with fit; numerous ones I've ordered have been quite attractive, but either (1) the size is too large or too small, (2) the circumference is not as advertised and they are too big or I can't get them zipped at all, and/or (3) the heel is higher than advertised and I can't bear wearing high heels, never could. I think high heels are an invention of the male establishment that wants to slow women down and cause them pain. These particular boots have a tantalizing name: "Walking Cradles." Sounds comfy, doesn't it? Not. They are as poorly padded as the cheapest of any cheap shoes. Thus: I give up. Enough is enough. Bah. Humbug!!

These felt true to size. I usually wear a 9 or 9.5 and I fit into a 9 in these. I have not worn them outside yet but they seemed very comfortable when I tried them on. Love the style and the distressed leather.

For a wide-calf boot, these are pretty good. They look cute, and I like the details at the ankle. They are a little stiff, but I expect they'll loosen up in time. The zipper is a little difficult to raise and lower, but it does work. Not my favorite boots I've ever owned, but good enough to keep for now. I'm hoping I'll grow to love them more.

Super cute with leggings and sweaters. Fits over my very high arch due to the elastic over the arch. Color works well with many outfits.

I needed a pair of shoes for a fancy wedding and didn’t have much time. I have horrible super wide feet (usually 8.5 ww) and puffy insteps so most shoes don’t work too well for me. These heels fit true to size, much like other Walking Cradle shoes I’ve bought. Plenty of room in the toe box and they didn’t cut into the sides of my foot. I was sad that they didn’t have the super soft pebble-like footbed which would have been so nice when I was gonna be standing for long periods of time. But they were what I needed style wise so I kept them. The criss cross bands on top of my foot were kind of tight, but they make soften after I have worn them a few more times, and it could just be my stupid feet. Bought padded foam insoles from drugstore to insert and make footbed softer. Great fast shipping by Zappos as usual. Love your customer service!

I was so excited to find this shoe- wanted black patent.... wanted chunky heel. The fit was terrible. Tge toe box bery uncomfortable and arch did not fit my foot at all. My foot is long and narrow- not the dhoe for me. Sent back. So disappointed.

Beautiful in person, thankful for a wide & comfortable & good looking dressy shoe for my feet that usually rely on orthotics.

I love the look of this shoe and was hopeful it was going to work for me. I am a wide but with a narrow heel which is very frustrating. Unfortunately, the toe box area fit very well but I was slipping out of the heel and even adding an insert did not help. They had to be returned.

This was terribly disappointing. I love the shoes, but they are too small. Maybe a size and a half too small. The sizing is totally wrong. Walking Cradles needs to fix this. Frustrating. I can't tell about the support because I COULD NOT GET MY FOOT IN THE SHOE.

Shoes fit perfectly. I have bad feet and they are very comfortable. They are classic; I plan on wearing with a gown for a wedding, but can easily wear with a short dress or slacks as well. I am very happy with my purchase. They run true to size.

I need a double wide on some shoes,so I was happy to get the correct width. However, the heel strap wouldn't stay up. I would not have been able to keep the shoe on, so had to return the shoe.

I like the look of these shoes, and they fit my short, wide feet well. I normally take a 6.5w, but I purchased these in the 6.5xw. The xw feels like a standard wide. I also appreciate that the top of the shoe doesn't dig into my high instep; that's rare for a slip on. I wish the shoe had better arch support, but it's not terrible.

I bought these in a size 6 WW. I usually wear a 6 or a 6.5 WW and even with a 6 they were a *tiny* bit too long. I had to put in some gel heel pads. They are a true WW. I have very unusual feet--they are small but very wide and I have a high arch. They shoes actually fit! I wouldn't wear them for long periods of time because the pointed toe makes them less comfortable but they worked for my very hard to fit feet. I don't know that they are going to win any awards for being stylish but they are totally functional and professional/dressy. I have been on the hunt for a pair of pumps that will work for my feet and I was glad to find these at last.
