Solid, Versatile Shoe
These shoes are great for young professionals. I use public transportation and walk a lot, so I need a comfortable shoe, and I generally hate heels -- even small ones. I'm up and down and walking around at work, but I can wear these all day, and I don't need to bring a change of shoes for my commute.
Perfect, small heel and classic style makes these great interview shoes -- I scuffed mine when I ran into a metal pipe when running to catch a bus, and I'm considering buying a second pair.

Loved the style, not the blisters
When I saw these shoes at Payless, I was sold. I loved the style, and I tried them on in the store and fell in love instantly. The heel wasn't too high, and I could pair them with jeans or a skirt. I bought them in a size 8.5 (the size 8 was a wee bit too small and the 8.5 was a bit too big, but I figured it'd be easier to fix the wee bit too big part) and wore them home. I had a bit of trouble walking because my right heel kept slipping out of the back of the shoe, but I figured I was just getting used to new shoes.
Boy was I wrong.
The next day, I wore them to work and by the end of the day, I was in so much pain from the blisters I received right under my big toes and pinky toes that I drove home barefoot because it was just too painful to wear them any longer. I cast the shoes aside for about a month and decided to try them again after that month. The first night I was able to wear them with no problems; no walking funny, no blisters. However, by the second night, the blisters came back (not quite as bad as the first time, but still pretty bad). I put on bandages and continued to wear them, determined to make these shoes work, but to no avail.
I really wanted to love these shoes, and I tried everything to make these shoes work; insoles, heel liners, everything, but no matter what I did, I wound up with blisters. The material that borders the opening of the shoe is just too rough, and the slippage just makes it worse.

Great For School or Work
I bought these for my Front House class at the culinary school, and they worked out great! They look much nicer than some other non-slip styles, so they're perfect for front house and other positions where you work in front of guests. Even though they have a heel, they're quite comfortable! The only problem I had was that when I first got them and wore them with nylon socks or tights, they would slip off all the time. Once I wore them in, however, this problem went away, but it was quite a nuisance the first couple weeks of class.

Only for people with narrow feet
I thought these would be good for work (retail - on my feet for 8+ hours), but no. The space for toes is much too small and I wound up bruising my toenails and hurting like crazy. They felt fine in the store, but after 10 minutes at work, I immediately regretted my decision. Make sure you walk all over the store when you try them on.
