Since the invention of the very first tiny black dress (by the Queen of Marseilles in 852 BC), the classic pump has been the perfect accompaniment, and the combination even inspired the very first eyebrow raise from the Royal Court. John drew the Paris with an understated, timeless rounded toe with tunite soles and a sensible & elegant 4" curvy leather wrapped heel, complete with a small platform for comfort as you walk your small dogs down the Champs Elysees. Featuring leathers in smooth or faux-devilfish finishes, or in embossed patterned suedes, The Paris will attract unrelenting attention. Take notice, John brings back the true pret-a-porter experience!
Rebecca, Dustin & Laura from our Chicago store says:
Stunning as always, the Paris is one sexy yet easy to wear heel thanks to cleverly hidden platform and incognito rubber sole. Very true to size in length with a delicate toe box that will need to break in. Stepping up in size is not recommended.

Best Impulse Buy Ever
I bought the black Paris on a whim as soon as I saw them on Crystal from the Portland store....they are AMAZING! They seem to sparkle as though they're covered in sequins! In fact, I think they're so beautiful that I often just take them out of the box to gaze admiringly at them :-) Most comfy high heels in my closet for sure! Fit true to size for me too!

Classic and Beautiful
The'Attentions Paris' in ostrich green had caught my eye recently while searching online. I decided to finally make the purchase.Concerned about sizing,I called the NY store, and was advised to get 1/2 size up to be on the safe side...I normally wear a 7 1/2, but there were no more 8's left. I took my chances on these beauties, and when I got them and tried them on, I didn't think I'd be able to wear them. My toes were smushed, but didn't want to give them up. I went to a cobbler and had them stretched. Now, they fit so much better, and I can't wait to show them off! I always advise trying on shoes in person, but if it's not possible, call a store, and you'll get a friendly suggestion ,->

Just got a pair of classy black Paris pumps to compliment my Gagas. Even just wearing them around the house in my jammies, I felt like a star. Chopping veggies in these = sexiest salad I've ever made! I wear a 7.5 in most Fluevogs (Minis, Operettas, Bellevues, etc. etc.) but had to go up to 8's in these. If you have any shoes from the Body Parts, Blind Faith or Coffee families, expect a similar fit. My feet aren't wide, but these feel a little narrow. Too bad they're sold out in green in my size. :( :( :(

When I saw these online, I had to see them for myself in store. LOVE them! Absolutely adorable. I'm usually a size 7 or 7.5 but with these shoes, I had to go a size down, 6.5 and they fit perfect. Only had them for couple of days now, was told leather in toe area will stretch out over many wears, so fits comfortably snug but not cramped for now. ,->

The Perfect Shoe
I already have these in green and I LOVE them! @>- And then...I feel in love again and bought the beige one! So pretty and sparkley and comfy with the rubber sole! Now I need that black sparkley one too!!!

Oh my, my, my!
This is the first slip on pump that has ever actually worked on my tricky feet!
The Spring 2011 edition of this style is amazing! The toebox top is a little higher, meaning I can actually fit my feet into them (in my "true size" even!)AND the sole is now RUBBER, not a "hard sole" which means they are really cushy! The leather is beautiful too, it's hard to really see it in the photos, in person it is suede with shiny "dots" meant to simulate sting-ray skin (or a really groovy Formica counter-top!)If you passed these by last year because of the smallish, tight fit, do yourself a favor and try the new ones! I love "Paris" in the springtime, and you will too!

Some like it hot...
Wow, these shoes look great on my feet...and are pretty comfortable for being so tall. My only regret is buying the pink ones so quickly because now I want the sparkly ones.
Posted by Rebecca from Winnipeg, Manitoba:
I purchased this shoe in my regular size 6. I see that other people are saying to get a half size up but that wasn't the case for me. My foot is an average medium width and if I were to get a half size bigger my foot would slip out of the heel of the shoe. I did find it needed a bit of work to stretch out the toe part (used leather shoe stretch spray) but it is great now. Being a higher heel of 4" they should fit snug so that your foot doesn's slip out of the shoe.

Do they get more comfortable?
Can anyone tell me whether these soften up after a while? They are beautiful shoes, but I have to agree that they feel like steel-toed boots. Four-inch heels don't have to be painful....I've got Listen Ups that were super comfy pretty much from the outset, and the heels on those are just as high as the Attention heel.

Sexy, Sexy shoes. On or off!
I'm going to agree that they aren't THE most arch supporting, foot loving shoe, but what 4" heel is? As 4" heels go, they're pretty good. The foot pad on on the ball and the heel are very cushy. The leather is a bit hard on the edges, but they're new. We'll see how that goes. It is leather.
As for size: Generally speaking, whatever your in between sizes are, take the half up.
Though I'd definitely prefer to be sitting with these on, I absolutely need to be seen in them. They're just gorgeous and they make me feel like a princess! ]:o)
