Heel

Heel

The Sam Edelman Hazel high heel shoes have a very tall and thin stiletto heel that most customers adore. The heel itself measures in at about 4 inches which suits a lot of wearers. The height of the heels on your shoes is more of a personal preference with a lot of women opting for a higher heel to give them a little more height when they are going to a special event or for a night out on the town. There are a great many reasons why someone would want to wear a tall pair of heels. Whether you are trying to make your legs look longer, your butt look better, yourself look taller, or your feet look smaller, these beautiful dress shoes are going to be perfect for you.

The thin stiletto heel is rather durable which is extremely important when you are talking about a pair of shoes like this. You do not want to have to worry about walking around for the evening or hitting the dance floor only to have your heel snap off causing you to fall and injure yourself or others. You will not really have to worry about that too much with these shoes, as the heel is designed so it should not snap too quickly or easily. That being said, you should still be careful when you are wearing these, especially if you are attending an outdoor event where you might be walking on soft ground, such as grass. Since the heels are thin you run the risk of sinking into the ground or getting caught in a crack or grate so it is important to be aware of where you are walking or standing. You might want to consider pairing these pumps with some clear heel stoppers if you are going to be in a situation where that might happen. The stoppers will give you a little extra width on the tip of the heel to help prevent you from sinking into the ground or your heel getting caught up in a crack.
Upper

Upper

Since these shoes come in a huge variety of colors and styles the materials that make up the uppers of these shoes are going to vary from pair to pair. Depending on the pair you choose to go with you are looking at a combination of materials that may include (but not limited to) leather, suede, jacquard, liquid metallic materials, or Brahma hair.

These pumps feature a low-cut vamp meaning they are going to cut off right above your toes, keeping the tops of your feet exposed. Wearing a pair of pumps with a low vamp like these is great for those who are trying to make their legs look longer, making it look like your legs start where your shoe ends, as opposed to at the ankle. The low vamp uppers, paired with the high stiletto heel, are ideal for those who aim to make their legs look like they go on for miles.
Durability

Durability

When you are shopping around for a nice pair of pumps to wear for a night out then you are going to want to make sure you get something that is going to last you more than one night. Chances are you are going to be spending a decent amount of money on a great pair of good looking shoes so you are going to want to make sure that they will last you. The price of the Sam Edelman Hazel pumps vary depending on the style and color you choose, but you could end up paying a pretty penny for a pair so it is nice to know that they are designed to last. They are made out of great quality materials and they are constructed fantastically so you will not have to worry about premature wear and tear. Whether you are attending a formal dinner date or going out dancing, you will not have to worry about these gorgeous pumps breaking or falling apart on you.
Support

Support

Support is extremely important when you are wearing shoes, especially when wearing a pair of high heels. You need to make sure that you get the support and stability that you need to make sure you stay on your feet and do not fall out of your shoe. To get the best out of these shoes you are going to want to make sure that they fit properly, which in this case that means snuggly. These shoes may not seem like it but they are designed to keep your feet locked into place and they cannot do that if they are too big on your feet. You do not want to worry about falling out of your shoes like Cinderella. Customers have commented that these heels give you support all the way around so you do not have to worry when you are out hitting the dance floor. Additionally, the padding on the footbed will provide you with an adequate amount of arch support that customers can appreciate.
Stability

Stability

Stability might not be the first thing that pops into your head when you are thinking about dancing the night away in a pair of almost 4-inch stiletto heels, but that is what you will get with the Sam Edelman Hazel pumps. You will get a decent amount of security and stability to help keep you upright on your feet while you are wearing these shoes. As long as you are wearing the proper size and they fit you snugly and securely you will be provided with a stable base to walk on. Yes, the heel of the shoes are thin and long which may seem like you do not have a lot of stability, but you still have a good amount of ground contact with the forefront of your feet which will help give you a more stable base.

If stability is something that you are worried about or if you just want a little extra then you can try out some clear plastic heel protectors to help give you a wider base to walk on. They can snap right onto the bottoms of the heels and are barely noticeable.
Comfort

Comfort

You may not expect a great deal of comfort out of a pair of 4-inch stiletto heels, but that is what you are going to get with the Sam Edelman Hazel pumps. They have 4 mm of cushioning designed right into them to ensure you get long-lasting comfort. The cushioning not only gives you a pleasant underfoot experience but also gives you adequate arch support which helps increase the overall comfort level of these shoes. Most customers have commented that they were pleasantly surprised that they were as cozy as they were right out of the box. There are some reviewers who chose to purchase additional gel inserts or heel pads to help improve the padding, but most users did not think that this was necessary and wore the dress shoes as is right out of the box.
Weight

Weight

When wearing any pair of shoes you are going to want to make sure that you get a pair that is relatively light, you do not want to feel like you are carrying around additional weight attached to your feet. That is not something that you are going to have to worry about when it comes to the Sam Edelman Hazel high heeled shoes. Since these shoes are made differently depending on the style and colors you choose to go with the weight is going to change from one pair to the next depending on the size and materials they are made out of. Because of this, there is no real information on exactly how much these shoe weight but one thing customers can agree on is that they are light. One customer even said that the weight was evenly distributed throughout the shoe which made them easier to more comfortable to walk in.
Style

Style

The Sam Edelman Hazel high heeled shoes come in a wide variety of colors and styles so there is bound to be something for everyone. Not only do the colors and patterns vary but so do the materials and textures of them. You can get a pair of solid colored black suede shoes or you can opt for a fun palm paradise print. No matter what color or look you decide to go with you will still get the same great comfort and quality. The heels have a slip-on design with a low-cut vamp and pointed toe. You will get a heel that is just under 4 inches with a stiletto look. Whether you are looking for something to wear for a night out on the town or you need a classic pair of heels to pair with a nice pair of jeans, these shoes are going to fit right in. Customers just adore the look and design of these great pumps.
Breathability

Breathability

Breathability is relatively important when it comes to your shoes. You are going to want to make sure that you have a way to get air to flow inside your foot chamber to help keep you cool while you are wearing them. The Sam Edelman Hazel pumps have a varying level of breathability depending on the design you choose to go with. For the most part, however, these shoes are not very breathable. That is not necessarily a bad thing, however. There is not a whole lot of your actual foot that is covered by the shoes and the majority of your foot is open to the air which will help keep you cool while you are out and about.
Fit

Fit

It is important to get a pair of shoes that are going to fit you snugly and securely. If your shoes are too small then they are going to be tight and uncomfortable, no one wants that. On the other hand, of the shoes are too big then they are going to lose and could potentially fall off while you are out and about, causing you to fall and injure yourself. Customers are saying that the Sam Edelman Hazel pumps are running just a little too big so you might want to consider purchasing half of a size smaller when you order them. If you are unsure as to what size you are going to need you can always consult their sizing chart to help ensure you get the perfect fit.

One of the biggest customer complaints about these heels is that they do not come in wide sizes. Unfortunately, if you have rather wide feet then these are not going to be the right shoes for you and you might want to consider a different option.
Bottom Line

Bottom Line

Customers love the look and style of the Sam Edelman Hazel dress shoes. With a tall stiletto heel and pointy toe, these shoes can go with almost any formal or casual outfit. Coming in a plethora of different colors, prints, styles, and materials you are sure to find something that will best suit your needs and wants. One of the biggest complaints about these shoes comes with the sizing so it is highly recommended you check out the size chart to ensure you get the best fit for your feet. Overall, though, customers have fallen in love with these great pumps.
