Women's Karmen Pump
Oooh just love 'em
I had been looking for a pair of nude pumps for a while and saw these in Payless. I could not believe how comfy they are when they are on, the fit is just perfect for me. Maybe its because the heel is not so high that they are so comfortable, however I would just love this manufacturer to make a version like these in a higher heel with platform.

So I don't normally write reviews but I have to give it to Payless -- This new Comfort Plus is a line they MUST KEEP!!
I wear a size 10 but if the shoe comes in wide I prefer it.
I bought these even before they went on sale because they just fit the first time and were ridiculously comfortable! But the best test was when I went salsa dancing for a night and I was able to wear these the WHOLE night! Normally I last only 30 minutes if that in other heels but these I could dance properly all night! So with that said, as an office shoe these would absolutely work all day and if you go out at night, you will be able to dance the night away for sure!
I'm going to buy more! Payless don't get rid of the Comfort Plus line please!

Great nude pump for work $10.70.
I bought these shoes on sale for $10.70 with tax. I had it shipped to payless store for pickup. These shoes are in a great nude color. I can wear it to work, church, even on weekend with jeans. I bought these shoes in nude 91/2 it feels great. I don't have to break it in. The shoes look like you spend a lot more than $10.70. It doesn't look like it came from payless. Thanks payless for making affordable comfortable work apporiate shoes. I work for corporate America. I have to have closed in pumps to work. These heels fits the bill. I want to order navy, red, and black.

Love these pumps!
I bought these in red to match a belt I had and fell in love. They were so comfortable that I also bought them in nude and now I am buying them in navy and black. I can walk around for hours and not have sore feet. I hate wearing heels so it says alot that I will wear these through airports and hospitals for work. These are AMAZING!

awesome love them
I had ordered the Navy Pump on line and had it shipped to the local store. This worked great!. I got a call that they were in yesterday. THis worked perfectly since I was giving a presentation at a local university at noon on gender and crossdressing. I wore my navy blue satin blouse and print skirt in anticipation that the pumps would be perfect. and they were! I loved them and got several compliments about how great they looked. they were very comfortable, I stood in from of the class for two hours, then went shopping for several hours after that. feet felt great. I may have to get one in every color... lol.

Bang for your buck
I got 2 pairs during a "Buy 2 get 1 free" promotion, and for less than $20 a pair, the value is ah-ma-zing.
I have broad feet, and the balls of my feet, especially my left, is always pinched in EVERYTHING. And I mean EVERYTHING. I would be unable to walk or stand long in heels because every step would be almost unbearable. Until now.
The shoe is immensely comfortable, does not pinch, provides more than sufficient cushioning in the front, and doesn't give me blisters. I was afraid due to the synthetic materials of the shoe, my skin would eventually blister. However, walking for an hour in tropical humid weather, my feet are surprisingly blister free. No potential blisters rubbed into the skin either. The rubber sole has good shock absorption, and provides good grip as you walk so there's no risk of sliding about, especially in the rain. The heel height is also ideal; high enough to noticeably slim the leg, but low enough to provide ankle movement for comfortable brisk walking and even running.
I got these in 2 colours; the purple and tortoise. The tortoise does look as pictured and in the store it almost looked like the design moved from different angles due to the lighting. It looked a bit trippy, but in my office lighting it looks fairly normal. The purple however is not an apt description of the colour. It looks more like a subtle metallic wine colour.
I wish this shoe had a smoother finish. The seams on the back of the heel and the inner side are quite noticeable due to the patent nature of the shoe (a bit of puckering),so it's a good thing that the seams are the same colour as the shoe. Also, I've only been wearing the shoe for a couple of days and I don't know how long it'll last, but I'm hoping with almost daily wear, it would hold up for at least a couple of months. Will keep you posted.
Even though this is an inexpensive shoe, the attention to detail is very satisfying. If it were made of better material and all other details mentioned remained the same, I'd be willing to pay more. For the current price though, no harm trying or buying these in every colour :)
