Editor's Pros & Cons
Pros
  • Long-lasting durability
  • Affordable price tag
  • Great look for the office
  • Chunky, tapered heel for stability
Cons
  • Only three color options
  • Can experience discomfort
Heel

Heel

This pump features a chunky tapered heel that measures in at about 2.5 inches, although the height will vary depending on the size you purchase. The thicker, block heel is nice because it gives you a better base to stand on while you are on your feet, giving you added stability that you might not otherwise receive from some other pumps with stiletto heels. You are going to get the added height from this heel, but without the discomfort and instability of some others on the market.

Customers love the thick heel as it provides you with a more stable base to walk on and increases the overall comfort level of the shoes, as opposed to some other thinner heels that are on the market. There are a time and a place for a tall stiletto heel, but for the office, you are going to be glad to have a chunky, tapered heel on your feet.
Midsole

Midsole

There is, unfortunately, not a lot of information on what precisely the midsole is made out of in these pumps; however, consumers can agree that they are reasonably comfortable. These heels feature an insole with extra cushioning to ensure that your feet are going to sink right in, keeping you comfy and cozy all day long. No need to worry about your feet killing you at the end of the day. If you feel like there is not enough cushioning under your feet or you need a little extra under-arch support, then you can always opt into purchasing an additional gel insert to sit inside the shoes and give you what you need.
Uppers

Uppers

The uppers of these pumps are made out of genuine leather to give them a soft feel and professional look. They are designed to be quite durable, so you are not going to have to worry too much about them ripping at the seams or accidentally tearing a hole in them. They have a squared toe which features a cute tasseled buckle embellishment to give them a little something extra.

The leather materials of the uppers are going to give you a decent amount of breathability, allowing air to easily flow into your shoes and keep you both fresh and dry throughout the day. That might not seem like that big of a deal, but you will be grateful when you are experiencing warm temperatures as you will not have to worry about your feet overheating too quickly.
Weight

Weight

If you are looking around for a pair of shoes to wear into the office, or if you are going to be standing for extended periods, then you are going to want to try to ensure you find a pair of heels that are going to weight as little as possible. You don't want to walk around with the feeling of extra weights attached to your feet for no reason, that can lead to discomfort and fatigue; thankfully, this isn't something that you will have to worry about. There is no information as to what they weigh exactly, but consumers can agree that they feel lightweight on their feet.
Support

Support

Support is crucial when you are wearing any shoes. You want to make sure that whatever you are putting on your feet is going to provide with the security that you need to make sure that your feet are staying locked into place without being too uncomfortable. The good news is that the Naturalizer Honor's do a pretty good job at keeping you locked in nice and snug, no need to worry about walking right out of your heels unintentionally. The vamp sits across your foot giving you a snug feel that helps prevent your feet from sliding around, while the rest of the upper comes around your heel and hugs your feet, keeping you secure.

When it comes to your arches, you can rest assured knowing that you will get a decent amount of support in that area as well. They have some extra cushioning underfoot thanks to a padded insole that gives you a fair amount of under-arch support. If you find that it just isn't enough for you, however, then you can always opt for some gel inserts to give you more cushioning where you need it.
Style

Style

The Naturalizer Honor pumps have a professional looking style that will fit in great in the office. If you are looking for a pair of work shoes, then these are going to be the perfect fit for you. They can transition well into some more casual settings, but most customers prefer to keep them with their working attire.

The 2.5-inch chunky heel gives you the extra height that you might be looking for while remaining professional and work friendly. Many consumers can appreciate the tasseled buckle embellishments on the vamp, giving them a little extra something to help them stand out and add to your overall appearance.

They are only available in a couple of colors, but that does not stop customers from falling in love with the heels. When purchasing, you can choose between black, olive (green), or dark sienna (brown). No matter what color you decide to go with or what you are pairing them with, you will look great strutting around in these great looking shoes.
Durability

Durability

When you are shopping around for any product, including your work shoes, you are going to want to make sure that you find something that is going to last. You want to make sure that your heels are not going to have any durability problems in the future that would require them to be replaced. Thankfully, the Honor's are constructed quite well and will not have any problems in the durability department. Of course, if you are not taking proper care of your footwear, then you run the risk of having to replace them prematurely, but for the most part, customers do not seem to have any problems with this.
Comfort

Comfort

When you think about putting your feet into a pair of heels all day, you might not imagine that comfort is going to be something that you will be able to experience, but that is just what you are going to get with the Naturalizer Honors. They have an insole that gives you extra cushioning for a more pleasant underfoot experience. You do not have to suffer throughout the day just because you are wearing a heel.

Even though they have a significant amount of underfoot comfort, there are still some customers out there who have experienced some discomfort in other ways while wearing the pumps. Some have mentioned that they are a bit narrow, even the wider sizes, so they tend to squish your toes. Additionally, the stitching can dig into your skin, causing them to rub uncomfortable and potentially lead to blisters. Please note that this is not something that everyone has encountered, but it is something worth mentioning.
Fit

Fit

The way your shoes fit is crucial to your overall foot health and your comfort level. You want to make sure that your shoes are fitting you snuggly and hugging your feet, but you don't want them to be too tight around your foot that they are cutting into your skin and pinching to your toes. It is a fine line, but once you find that perfect fit your feet will love you for it.

The Naturalizer Honor pumps fit true to size when it comes to the length of the shoes; however, some reviewers have mentioned that they fit just a tad on the narrow side, even if you are purchasing them in wide width. This is something that you are going to want to keep in mind when ordering so you can take this into consideration when choosing your size. If your feet are wide, then these heels might not be the best fit for you.
Stability

Stability

You are going to get a decent amount of balance from these heels, something that you might not expect from something that is giving you an extra 2.5 inches of height. Even though they have decent size heels, the fact that that they are chunky ensures that you have a broader base to stand on and therefore provides you with more security and stability than you would receive if you were wearing thin, stiletto heels. Another advantage that you have with the thick, tapered heels is that if you are walking around outside or are attending an outdoor event, you are going to have a much easier time. You are not going to have to worry about your heels sinking into the soft ground or even getting stuck in cracks or grates, causing you to fall and injure yourself or other potentially.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for a comfortable pair of shoes for the office that is going to be both stylish and reliable, then you have come to the right place. These classic pumps have approximately a 2.5-inch chunky heel to give you the height you desire with the professionalism you require. They come in a couple of colors, so you are sure to find a pair that best works with your style. Whether pairing them with a pencil skirt or a pair of dress slacks, these heels are going to fit right in. They have an affordable price tag and a long life span, making them a fantastic investment and welcomed addition to your work attire. Some customers did not have the most pleasant experience when it comes to the overall comfort level, but for the most part, consumers were pleasantly pleased with the way they felt throughout the day.
