"Only had one pair of Naya boots in a W width, so unsure what I could wear in regular. I have a medium arch and wider feet. Also have a ganglion cyst on the top of my right foot (got it after snowboarding and it won't go away!).
Ordered 9.5M (Normally wear 9-9.5W in Sofft) and had coupon, so took a chance since I could just return them to the local DSW if I didn't like it (unlike 6PM or Zappos). Received them in about 5 business days. I put them on after I had been out all day and driving and they were kind of tight and the peep-toe felt like it was cutting into my big toe. Despite that, I decided to try them in the AM when my feet weren't so swollen. Put them on when I got up...like a dream! Probably could have used a 9W, but the 9.5M fit great without any pinching or discomfort and enough slack to not make my foot feel like a sausage. Heel height is perfect. Padded footbed, like Sofft, so comfy! I like to bootie-style since it gives great all-over support when walking in a higher heel. It really doesn't feel like 3", as I have bought 3" heels and I feel like I'm tippy-toe-ing! I can walk without looking like I'm trying to balance! I haven't tried them on when going out yet, but if I can, I'll post an update on how I fare using them to a party or out. They are not very fancy, more like business casual/dressy since the heel is a contrasting wood color, but definitely not like flip-flops! Will look great with slacks or jeans to give great height and a little flare! The rippling effect of the leather gives it some "oomph" when you want to spice up your look a little.
I used to only buy Sofft brand, but I'm so very glad I tried Naya! Getting a little older (and heavier), I'm really looking for trendy, comfortable shoes that don't make me look 20 years older than I am. I'm willing to buy a more expensive shoe that is comfortable, versus a nice looking, cheap shoe that I just want to chuck after walking out the front door! I would've paid $80-100 for this shoe, that's how comfortable it feels and how cute it is!
I used to always buy 3"+ heels, but since I can't hang anymore, have to find a compromise...so far, this fits the bill. You'll love them if you get them!"

"I looove these shoes. They are very comfortable and fit well. The look is different without being too way out there. The quality seems to be very good and they are promising to wear well for a long time."
