This shoe fits beautifully. I have flat, narrow feet, and haven\'t had success with any flat shoes, no matter how expensive. Flat shoes always gap, they are wide, and not flattering. Somehow this shoe comes up a little higher, is narrow, and fits great. Makes my feet look nice. What a welcome surprise. It does run a little large so I had to order a 7.5 instead of an 8.

This British size is not the equivilent of a US size 11. I am definitely an average 11 and this shoe is equivalent to a 10 at best. In addition, it is cheaper looking than most other same price shoes; I suspect just because it is an import. I am here to tell you it is a Payless quality import. Needless to say, I am returning these shoes.

These shoes felt great right out of the box. I wore them for an entire day without any problem. I have flat feet, and need a wide toe box, so it is a joy to find a comfortable dress shoe. Not a lot of arch support, but they still felt great. I usually wear an 11, but needed 11.5 in this brand.

Perfect! I've been buying and returning because the toe of the shoe doesn't come up high enough, so it cuts my foot in the wrong spot. Not so with these, and I've got to say the style looks like a Ferragamo shoe! Finally a 'flat' shoe that isn't a ballet flat. I'm a grownup. I work. I need real shoes, not slippers. These have support, style femininity. They are worth every penny. Buy them.

I'd also recommend: Rockport, Vigotti

I really comfy and nice looking. I wore them for the first time for my son's graduation which was an all day both outdoors and indoors. It's rare that I can wear shoes without feeling like I've made a mistake. I am thinking of getting a pair in another color.
