Runs small. These are really soft comfortable shoes. They don't have much support. I love the color and the soft suede. The little heel dresses them up a little bit.

I love these shoes! I wear a Euro size 41, in US I go between 9.5 and 10 (rarely 10.5 but it happens). I got these in a 10, they were super tight at first try but just tight, my toes weren't squished or bent. Keeping the dancer lady's review in mind, I wore them around the house and decided to see it through. After one day of walking around they now fit my foot like a glove and haven't taken them off since. Mine are the brown suede and I don't know if that aided in conforming to my foot so quickly and easily but it seems like the super soft material might be a factor. Whatever, they're super and I'm getting them in black too!

These are great city shoes. They are well made and have a nice rubber sole. The woven leather helps keep your feet cooler too. The shoes are a little on the wide side, which is fine for me; otherwise, I found they ran true to size. As with most ballet flats, there is not a lot of arch support. The brick red color compliments a lot of outfits, and they are also dressy enough for a formal workplace. Finally, a shoe that is comfy enough to walk to work in that I don't need to change when I get there! I bought them in two colors and anticipate on getting a lot of wear out of them. Thanks, French Sole.

Very cute shoe--very small. I am a true 10; needed 10.5 and might even be able to wear 11. I already owned this shoe in the pewter leather and wear them to death in warmer weather, so I know I will get a lot of use out of these too.

I love these shoes. I have been wearing them for 5+ years. I am buying additional pairs because they are my sigature shoe and I don't want to be without. However there must have been a sizing change. My normal size8 was like a childs shoe. I tried 8.5 still too tight. 9 fits. I am relieved. Hopefully they will not stretch out as other reviews have said Before I stock up I will wear these new ones for awhile and then decide if buying 9 is best.

I ordered these ballet flats in the Black Nappa Leather a half size larger than my usual shoe size. These fit great! They are extremely soft and very comfortable. I have been looking for a flat that worked with my retro 1950's looks. These fit the bill quite nicely. I am truly pleased with my purchase and look forward to buying my second pair.

These are a lovely, well-made shoe. I'm only returning it because the red is a tad too orange-y for me, and they squeak. It's mighty hard for reds to reproduce well on a monitor.

Nice shoe. I ordered the navy in an 8.5, but it was so dark - it really looked more love black to me and my daughter. It was also snug across the toes, even though we ordered a half size bigger than what we usually wear in a boot. If we didn't already have a couple of pairs of black suede booties we would probably keep this one, snugness and all, but we really needed navy, so it will unfortunately go back. And I have to add: we ADORE Zappos! They make everything SO easy and enjoyable!

Extremely under sized, not feeling confident to order the next size up as that may not even be enough. Interesting that some reviews quote these are true to size, unless there is no consistency in their manufacturing? Sad thing is they're super cute

I read reviews for hours trying to decide which size to buy. I ended up trying my true size of 9 and they were painfully tight. I exchanged for a 91/2 but they were a bit loose and I was concerned that they would get floppy once they stretched. So I sent back the 9 1/2 and kept the 9 and I'm glad I did. They were pretty uncomfortable for the first several wears ( I wore them around the house with socks the first few times) but now they are stretched nicely and super comfy. My feet are a bit wide and I'm a true size 9 so hopefully this will help other folks with the fit. Well worth the money and the effort, great little flats!

Love these shoes. I am normally a 7.5, but when I tried them on, they were tight across the top of my foot to the point that they left a mark. I tried the size 8s, very comfortable, and visually they looked identical to the 7.5s. After wearing each around the house, the 8s ended up being a tad loose and the 7.5s ended up loosening out a bit. Overall, true to size (after a little bit of wear!). Very well made. Great purchase!

These are my favorite ballet flats! They are so comfortable. They fit my foot like a glove. I love the color and style.

Finally… my hunt for the perfect suede pump is over. This shoe is adorable and wearable for an entire work day.

I had tried these on in the store in NY so knew they ran a bit big and also that they stretch out. I have wide feet and these are the only flats I've had that don't squish my toes. The only fit issue I have is that the spot where the patent meets the soft leather rubs my fourth toe a bit. I'm hoping that with time, the shoe will stretch and this won't be an issue. The show is classic looking though the toe box looks a little frumpy. Worth the sacrifice for some comfort for me!

Very comfortable but flats don't always have the best support. I would buy them again!

I was excited that they had my size in stock; I had been waiting for 9.5 to become available for a while. The look of this shoe is great--classy and elegant--and the sizing is spot on. The toe box is really wide without looking frumpy and I suspect this is the reason why this shoe garners such high ratings. No sardine toes here. However, I had to return them because there is no arch support and, more importantly, the heel is very uncomfortable--it's like walking on a wood block. At my age (50s), sadly, I can no longer abide that. I need more cushioning or the dreaded plantar fascitis sets in. For a younger person (i.e., myself 20 years ago) these shoes would be a home run. But those days are gone for me. FSNY please consider some cushioning in the heel and I'll be your bff. But for now, it's back to Born, Flexx, Birks, Teva, and every other shoe made for those of us who who are looking for beauty inside and out.

These shoes are so comfortable! Unfortunately I recently had bunion surgery and the top of the shoe rubs the scar-which is only two months old and very tender. I have to return them-maybe I will be able to buy them again in the future.

I ordered a half size bigger than usual because that was all that was available and reviews for fit were all over the place. The bigger size was definitely needed but the shoes still gapped on the side. Returned!

Love this style, but way too large, even after ordering half size down. Had to return.
