This one is the more comfortable of the two but it's also the more "matronly" one. I feel like I could walk long distances in these and they feel sturdy. The bottoms are slip resistant and don't have cheap plastic heel caps! I'll be adding studs to them to make them look a bit younger and more fashionable. The Lively is a bit slimmer and more fashion forward than the Parigi.
Update: I loved the white so much I bought the black kiddy. I thought it would be a shinier leather based on the picture. I added a leopard strap and I’ll be adding studs as well. Perfect basic shoe to alter plus they are extremely comfortable.
The cons are that the left and the right shoe were each cut slightly differently on the top and are different lengths. I don't know if this is a quality control issue. also, I was aware when ordering these that these were synthetic even though I prefer leather shoes, but leather shoes can be difficult to find. They do have a strong chemical smell as many synthetic items from China do, which I do not know if that will go away. also, often synthetic doesn't stretch. of course I don't want to wear them yet as I will probably return them.
So I'm on the fence at the moment, and wonder if anyone else has had these different cut/length shoe issues or can speak further to these shoes stretchability. thank you.
Just have in mind that the WW run a bit larger in size.
If I’m lucky enough to find any, I usually wear 10,5 W. If not, usually 11 M fits okay-ish. There was no 10,5 WW or W size available so as usual, I went up and ordered an 11WW. These were huge! I returned them (props for the return policy, it was the easiest amazon return in my life, you just bring the shoes to an Ups store, no packaging or label required!) and ordered a 9,5 WW. And this second pair fit perfectly, I’m in love! There is plenty of space in the toe box, no more squeezing of my toes, the sole looks super sturdy and they are pretty!!! I’ll order more pairs in different colors!!!

EDIT 28 Oct 19: These shoes have a serious flaw. I wear them daily for work, and, as is normal for most pumps, the heel cap eventually wears down. I had purchased a replacement selection of heel caps, and the procedure ought to be quite straightforward: taking a pair of pliers, you grip the old heel cap firmly, and gently twist back and forth as the metal peg works its way out. However - and this is the second pair of LifeStride Parigis that this has happened to for me - the rubber cap strips immediately off the metal peg, leaving only about 1.5mm of exposed metal to try to grip and twist. Literally not possible, as the pliers just jump off the tiny piece of peg, stripping it even worse. This is the second pair I have had to throw in the trash due to this issue, and I am NOT HAPPY!
These are probably the most comfortable heels I have ever worn. The material inside is soft and slightly spongy. It feels almost like a soft leather suede inside. The heel itself isn't too high, so if you're looking for a stiletto this isn't it. It's slightly higher than a kitten heel though. They are also very true to size. I'm a size 7 and that's what I ordered and they fit perfectly in length and width. The bottom of the shoe isn't slippery at all and has small little rubber grips that make them very easy to walk in. Even the heel itself isn't slippery.
I have very bad knees (osteoarthritis) and I work these shoes all night last night and today my knees don't hurt one bit! For me, that is the true test of comfort. The inside of the shoe didn't rub anywhere on my skin and I don't have a single blister.
I love them so much I'm already looking to order another pair from this company. I'm eyeing up the red patent ones 👠
