The shoe needed no breaking in and I wore it for a few hours the very first time with no problem. The only thing that I was disappointed in was the color. It was labeled as Pearl White but it isn't a pearl white, it's more on the beige side.
About This Item
Classy, stylish and versatile
I wanted a classic black high heel with a pretty profile and a not very high heel. Got it in the Trotter's Janna. So very happy with it that I don't even know where to start. It is very comfortable. From the side, the heel looks narrow but it is actually more of a rectangle. This gives one a pretty shoe that is also a great walking shoe... that looks like an expensive classic high heel.
I bought these shoes because they are a classic style and made from leather. That is not an easy combination to find at retail stores in my area! I like the color, a deep rich red. The heel height is just right. I wore them for the first time at my son's graduation ceremony and was on my feet a lot. They are the most comfortable pair of dress shoes I own. I will probably order another pair in a different color.
Good Basic Pump
Just what I needed. Heel is high enough to look OK with a pencil skirt. Extrawide (for my buniony feet) fits really well, because the back of the shoe is not enormous. (Some manufacturers seem to feel that if your foot is extrawide, your heel is enormous!) Felt a little tight at the toe at first, but is now quite comfortable. Would buy again, probably will.
not perfect, but pretty anyway
I bought these shoes to wear at a family gathering. There is something a little funny about the way they're cut on top that looks a little lopsided on one shoe, but I decided it's more obvious to me than anyone else, and kept them. They are very pretty, and I'm pleased and surprised that I can wear them without discomfort for an entire evening. I haven't tried to go longer than that yet.
A little disappointed
I've worn Trotters pumps before and they have always fit perfectly and been very comfortable. These are pretty but for some reason, although my usual size, my heals keep slipping out of the shoes when I walk. I placed toe pads, which helped, but I'll have to place heel pads in addition to prevent this.
Not so comfortable
I thought when I tried these shoes at home that the fit was comfortable and so I wore them out. Most regrettably, I did not take a spare pair of shoes with me because I truly found these shoes tremendously uncomfortable. By the time I got home after wearing them initially for about two hours (not walking outside for that time, but indoors at a function) both feet were aflame with pain. Just my experience.
Had Janna in black size 7ww and it fit OK. Ordered it in brown same size, it was enormous. Ordered it in 6 1/2 ww, too tight, 7w, not so enormous but still too loose in back. Needed the shoe so kept it anyway but I have numerous pads and heel grips in it and I still slide around. Sizing completely inconsistent.
