Rated 2 out of 5 by Bluesers Very narrow
These shoes are well-made and very nice, but cut way too narrow. My foot width is normal, but these were so narrow I could barely get them on, much less walk around in them comfortably. If you have extremely narrow feet these would probably fit great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by k2014 Silver leather stiffer than patent leather version
I found the silver leather stiffer than the patent, but overall a great style with a great heel height. I have slightly wide feet, and used a shoe stretcher to expand the ball area. The open side certainly allows for a variety of foot widths, which I love. Overall the regular patent leather are softer and more accommodating for a wider foot, and absolutely comfortable for a heel. I hope Valentina remains a Jcrew staple and does not become discontinued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HMichelle84 Perfect summer shoe
Absolutely love the Valentina mirror metallic pumps and wear them almost daily to the office - they are truly the perfect summer shoe! They run true to size, and although I have a narrow foot, it does take a full day to break them in properly. I found both these and the patent had a habit of squeaking when they were new - a dab of petroleum jelly (or clear chapstick) on your big toe is a very useful fix. I love that I can wear them with suits, business casual, or even office casual clothing, and the sub-3" heel means you can comfortably walk in them all day (the d'orsay absolutely helps relieve the discomfort of swollen feet from a 12-hour day!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShelbyM If you're thinking about getting them- GET THEM!
I have had these for about 9 months (in the platinum color) and they are my favorite pair of shoes! I can wear them with jeans, with a dress, everything. They go with everything in my closet. I can see how some people think they are too narrow, but they fit just snug on my 6.5 feet. The heel height is perfect; the only times I had problems were when I was working on my feet for 3-4 hours straight. They can get scuffed, but it's not noticeable unless you're looking for it. It's not in my budget right now, but I totally want a second pair! BUY THE SHOES!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ekaterina chick and comfortable
I own several Valentina shoes and find these very chick and comfortable. All my Valentina shoes fit true to size, despite the narrow pointed toe. I can't wear some other shoes with the narrow pointed toe I have tried from J.Crew but these work well for me. I often wear these Valentina shoes to parties and can stay dancing all night long (not the case for many other shoes in my wardrobe)! These silver mirror shoes are especially chick in my view and they match with literally everything!!
