Comfortable Women’s Shoes | Review of Sofft Fiorenza Pumps


Thank you to Sarah-Jean Ballard of The Fashionable Housewife for filling in as guest blogger today. She shares my love of comfortable shoes that happen to be beautiful.

The Sofft Fiorenza pumps in Chianti Patent are like my own personal ruby slippers. With their signature padded insoles, you can expect the same all-day comfort that you've come to love from the Sofft brand.

An updated and very classy looking Mary Jane pump that is perfect for Fall. The Chianti red patent leather is so striking and beautiful. Pictures really don't do any justice to these shoes.

Fiorenza_06Besides the amazing color, these shoes are surprisingly comfortable for having a 3 ¼ inch heel. If you have foot problems and can't wear high heels, you should definitely give these a try. The heel doesn't feel as high as it looks and the wide strap holds the shoes on snugly.

I have several pairs of Sofft brand shoes and find them not only comfortable but very stylish as well.

Fiorenza_00I recommend trying these shoes on in a store if you can. The toe box is small and you may find that either sizing up will help with this problem, or getting the wider width. I got them in a size 7 M (standard) width and they fit me quite snugly.  I suspect someone with a chubbier foot than mine, might have a problem getting their foot fully into the shoe comfortably.  It's not narrow width wise as much as it's just vertically small if that makes any sense. If you are looking for a roomy toe box, then these probably aren't a good choice for you.

These shoes look great with skirts and dresses, of course, but they even work with skinny ankle jeans, boyfriend jeans rolled up, and shorts with tights.

While I absolutely adore the red, I realize not everyone has something they can wear red shoes with. Don't worry, you can also get these in shiny black patent and smooth black leather. These are the perfect pumps to add to your wardrobe!

I would definitely recommend the Sofft Fiorenza to anyone who is looking for a stylish high heel shoe that is also comfortable enough for all day wear. Perfect for an office style look or work.

Price: $104

    I went to my local Walking Company store last night and tried them on but alas, they were just too high for me. If the heel was closer to 2″ they would be perfect. The leather is so delicious and shiney and deep red and I was hoping that they would work but I felt like I was getting ready to topple over in them. BUT they were nicely cushioned!
