I received these in Kraft brown and they are fantastic! It's a great neutral color. The toe point is reinforced on the bottom, ensuring longevity. I cannot stress how comfortable these are right out of the box. IRL I take a size 7. I ordered my typical Crew size of 7.5 (same size as I took in the Everly, Etta, and Cece). The toe box is perfection, ever so slightly wider than my other Crew heels. I will not have to stretch these like I've had to with the others. No pinching! There is some slight padding at the ball of the foot which makes it even more comfortable. And no heel slippage which, again, I usually have to deal with.
Congratulations to the design department for this iteration and getting it so right! A hearty thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnabellePug Very nice!
I ordered these pumps in blue, strawberry and silver metallic and I am overall very pleased with the fit and style. I take my normal J. Crew size of 6.5 and they fit perfectly without any stretching required. This is definitely a step up from the Everly, as the longer length and higher heel elongate the legs further. I am surprised that despite the Elsie being half an inch higher than the Everly, the comfort level is identical. The only thing I like to remark is that the strawberry color looks more like orange in real person, as opposed to red. Other than that, these heels can rival the really high end Premier brands which cost at least twice as much. Well done, J. Crew!

J Crew does it again with these amazing pumps. True to size, and comfortable! Excellent quality, the color (deep violet - more blue than purple) is gorgeous. Just what I've been wanting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EJCG THE Classic pump is here
Look no further, these are it! Perfect for work and sexy with jeans. Classic can be hip and Elsie is proof!
I have them in several colors and the only complaint is I wish they came in kid leather. I will admit that the slightly shorter heel of the old Everly was a tad more comfortable, although you had to size up because the toe box was shorter. You will regret not getting more colors. I have wanted to try treating my suede with a water repellant spray, but have been afraid it may stain but I use a suede cleaning kit that comes with brush (very lightly!) and eraser for stains which works pretty well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lilac007 Beautiful soft suede but no padding on ball area
As a true size 7, I ordered the rose blush in size 7. The rose blush color is not neon; soft to the eyes. Beautiful! The suede is SO SOFT! Once they were on, the fit on my right foot was spot on but on my left, my small toes were screaming with cramp so need to order a half-size up. My bunions didn't scream for pain. I strutted for about 5 minutes on a carpeted floor then I experienced ball of foot pain! There is inevitable "OUCH" in every second I have them on! When I inspected them more, the Elsies don't have much padding on the ball of foot area. This is very disappointing since these are apparently made in Italy and for a pair of high heels, I was expecting them to be very padded. I am expecting better design when it comes to comfort. Unfortunately, I had to return the Elsies. For the high price, I expected comfort. I own Italian-made high-heeled shoes and they are comfortable. These are definitely NOT up to par with my Italian-made/designed shoes.
