It's been a long time since I've worn heels. Never liked the platform look. But I needed a pair for a wedding. These are beautiful and comfortable although like most heels, the comfort is not long lasting.

This was the second pair of these flats I have ordered. The first pair which I got several years ago are very comfortable and the elastic band around the top is perfect to prevent gaps; the foot padding is minimal but comfortable. So, I decided to order them in the navy and they are NOTHING like the first pair. They look and feel like a cheaply made shoe, no support, no elastic in the band, and they are not even sized the same. Too bad because I was looking forward to a second pair of these shoes but they have to go back.

Comfortable and stylish. These go well with jeans or sun dress. I walked around DC after graduation and they were comfortable.

What a perfect and simply beautiful little flat! I have these in several colors now and have gotten so many compliments on them. I have the taupe, navy, and black. Would have gotten the red fabric ones, but they didn't have my size. Dress up or down. Perfect literally with everything; pants or dresses, lounge pants. I usually prefer a leather lining, but these work fine. No slippage, no rubbing. If my feet begin to swell, the elastic accommodates that beautifully. The round toe is very sweet and tones down the sultriness of some of my sexier dresses, like a knee-length dress with a bit of a lower neckline. I got the size 10 to accommodate my wider feet. Fits fine, but I also got one in the 9.5 and it fits even better, although the 10's are also great. I usually wear a 9W or 9WW. These lovely, soft shoes are very forgiving! Oh, and no break-in period!

Very cute shoes and the fit was pretty good. However, by the middle of the day, both of my heels were bloody and raw because of the shoes rubbing against them. I even used gel heel inserts before the first wearing to help prevent blisters, but these shoes really tore up my heels and I'm not sure I'll be able to wear them again. Very disappointed.

I have a very hard time finding flats that are comfortable. So often, I get blisters on my heels or the tops of my feet where the shoe rubs. I can usually tell when they will rub and give me blisters, and I thought these would work. Well, I have to say they do rub a bit on the heels, so I put inserts there, and they are better. I think they just need to be broken in for awhile and then they will probably be fine.

The strap going across the top of your foot is way too loose. The sandals look cute, but they're way to big. I like my foot to feel a bit more secure in a sandal.

Love these shoes! They are so comfortable and stylish. I have received many compliments on them and have only worn them a couple of times so far.

These just couldn't be better. I'm wearing them right now and thinking about ordering another color. They are the softest, most comfortable ballet flats I've ever owned. I had considered Cole Haan, Lucky, Tieks, Yosi Samura, and many others, but these are less than half the price of many of those and twice as comfortable. What could be better? I wear a 7 1/2, and these are exactly true to size. The elastic helps them stay on my foot, but they aren't tight at all, like the Cole Haans and Luckys are. Just soft and flexible. I bought the navy, which is a subtle, almost charcoal-tinted color, very versatile. Then I bought the gold, which are less practical, in that the fabric is much more delicate than the navy leather is - it's hard to tell in the picture, but the gold is not an applique or stud, it's actually a fabric woven of gold thread. (Don't make the same mistake I did and walk on pebbles with these - the fabric wraps around the bottom of the shoe at the sides and will tear.) Overall: go for it! You won't be sorry. Now I'm going to go order them in black...

Great shoe - comfortable the very first time I wore them. Fit true and plan on buying them in more colors. Don't hesitate to buy this shoe - you won't be sorry. One thing to note: there is no arch support.

Cute shoe, pretty much zero support, but I knew that would be the case from reading other reviews. I vary between a 9 and a 10, so I ordered a 9.5 which was a good fit except that it's a bit too narrow on the outer edge of the pinkie toes.

BEST FLATS EVER. So comfy, the sparkle is so perfect without being overdone. It's more of a champagne color but pretty close to the image. You do not need to take time to break these in. I officially want all colors.

I love these flats! They are so comfortable right out of the box. I vary between a size 10-10½ in a normal width. I ordered 10½ because that was available - I probably could have also worn the 10 comfortably, but am happy with the half size up. They have a very nice, soft lining - my feet never feel sweaty even after wearing them all day. I bought them in "natural leather" and that is the perfect neutral.

This shoe is much cuter in person than in the picture. I ordered in in gold and think it will be very versatile for summer wear. I ordered an 8.5 and it was very true to size.

These are so cute and most importantly COMFORTABLE! Just enough of a heel for work, and I love the shiny wedge. I'm only giving it an overall 4 is because they seem a little big.

These are very cute and comfortable. I have a very narrow foot and they were too wide for me. I would have kept them otherwise. Nice light base for a wedge too.

These cute flats were comfortable immediately, I did not experience any blistering or rubbing. I love them and wish they came in more colors!

Loved these shoes. The color (blue) was perfect. They were a little hard on my toes at end of day one but comfortable after a few wears.

After trying over 10 pairs of heels, I finally realized heels are very personal. A pair fits one does not necessarily mean imply the good fit for others. For this particular pair, I do love it though. They were a bit stiff on the first day, but went well afterward. The pattern is also fun and easy to go with skirts and pants. The shape is not too pointy either. I normally wear size 7.5 to 8 depending on the actual fit. For these shoes, I went with 7.5 and the toe box fits just fine (I'm about 140 lbs, average feet).

This is a wonderful flat. The all-around elastic, super soft leather, and soft interior make it very comfortable. No chaffing, pinching or any discomfort. I am officially an 8 but plagued by what I call "ridiculously sensitive big high volume feet" (slightly wide because of bunions, high instep, high arch, and an inability to tolerate any pressure point). I ordered an 8.5 because of the bunions and they fit perfectly. Due to its flexibility and comfort, this shoe looks like it will accommodate a wide variety of foot shape and volume. Obviously, since it's a flat, there is no arch support but I don't expect flats to have any. I had also tried on the Fitzwell Carmene flat and the Nine West Jentle Leather flat but both chafed at the heel (the Fitzwell a little, and the Nine West a lot) so those two were returned while the Bandolino was kept. Zappos is wonderful as always: it's the only place where my problem feet can find shoes that don't hurt.

Wow, finally a pair that's made to adjust for narrow feet. Thank you Bandolino for getting it right when all others have failed. I have a narrow, flat foot with no arches and this one works. Please make more styles with working buckles and you'll have a forever fan.
