The Cara Ankle-Strap Heel

The Cara Ankle-Strap Heel is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic versatile heel I bought these heels when they went on sale and I am so glad I did. They are very comfortable and although I was unsure about the more pointed toe, they make the heel appropriate for any formal occasion. I also love how the strap is removeable so you get two looks for one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy, mature, classic The red shade of the dark cabernet heel is tremendously beautiful. I have been looking for a sexy, mature red heel for a while, and these fit the bill. The heel itself is very comfortable since the heel width is wider, and all together, it has a very classic composition. I imagine that I'll be wearing these until they start to fall apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steady & secure This shoe is made well. I feel like I can wear it for hours and it would be fine. I was looking for a professional looking heel that wouldn't be as uncomfortable as a regular high heel pump. I wear a size 6 in sneakers and some boots and typically a 5 in regular pumps. The 5 fits like a glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable and steady I am beyond pleased with these shoes. Ordered red and grey with the idea of returning one pair, but I don't think I can!! Wearing the red pair for the first time today and got plenty of compliments plus my feet are not hurting one bit (a lot of walking in the office). Love the fact that you can remove the ankle strap, makes it such a versatile shoe and they look great either way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! Absolutely love these! I got them in the red color and they are so pretty for the holidays. I don't normally wear heels but I've worn these for two events in the last week and my feet did fine. Wore without hose and I didn't get any blisters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the burgundy color I got them in burgundy, such a nice color in person, a little dark but looks just perfect. They fit true to size and are comfortable to wear with or without the strap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Heels Ever! I received the Cara heel in black for Christmas, and WOW - I love them so much! The heel is taller than what I am used to, but despite that, shockingly comfortable! I have a wide foot and usually cannot buy shoes (let alone heels!) online, and it's incredibly difficult to find heels that are wide enough without being too big in the back. These are perfect. I broke them in in less than a day and can wear them all day at work (I plan events, so I'm up and down and walking around a lot) without regretting it. I loved them so much I bought the Wild Boar once they went on sale. I'm wearing them today at work and was so happy with how comfortable they are on day one, that I had to write a review. PLUS, I get compliments every single time I have either pair on. Buy these!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Years heels Bought these for New Year's Eve and loved them!!! Only wore them once so far as it's cold and wet in Chicago. But, they were comfortable (for heels) and sophisticated and fun!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! Beautiful shoes, easy for long wear. I danced the night away at a wedding and my feet didn't hurt until the very end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Gorgeous! Got these to wear to my voice recital, and they look adorable, and are super versatile. They match most things in my closet, and are great quality. So excited to wear them!
