Women's Helen Bow Pump
I picked these up last minute on my way out of town for a business trip, after having lost my favorite black heels. I was worried. These were new, not broken in, and I was going to end up wearing them for 12+ hours a day.
They fit perfectly, I didn't go down a size, but after long days my feet tend to swell so I'd be afraid to go down a size anyways. They performed beautifully, felt even better than the heels I had lost.
My trip culminated in a run through two terminals to catch a flight home, and while I'm not about to trade my running shoes in for these, the fact I was able to run in them at all says a lot.

My most favorite pair of shoes
I tried them on in a Payless store and fell in love immediately so despite already having 8 pairs of black shoes (from flats to ankle boots) at home, I had to grab myself these as well. They're now the one pair I wear the most. Perfect height, very light, gorgeous design that goes with both my classiest dresses and my most casual jeans. On top of it all, they're super comfortable. I'm a librarian so I do a fair amount of standing and walking around at work and my feet are never in any sort of discomfort by the end of the day.
Make sure you down half a size. I'm a size 6 and I got a pair of Payless's Karmen pumps for size 6 but it turned out quite loose, so I got 5.5 for these ones (and their Interest Oxford by Prediction.) Fit perfectly.
