This style is adorable and this color scheme is really nice. You can wear with turquoise or reddish orange or other complementary colors. There's a bit of goldish shine to it also. I got an 8 wide (D) and it fits perfectly. The only problem I have is that they a bit high & so would start getting uncomfortable for me if worn all day. But for church or special occasions, great!

For the price they are cheaply made. They are reasonably comfortable for heels but not amazing. The heel looks cheap and the insole has already started flaking off after 3 wears since it's not real leather leaving white spots by the toe. I wish I would have returned them before wearing them.

I bought these in the taupe leather. I was not impressed with the quality of the leather. It looks like something I can buy at Payless, but instead spent quite a bit on. However, I have large and wide feet (11½-12W/WW) and when I put them on I absolutely the way they feel but I do not like the way they look. They really are comfortable and one of the few sandals I have found that do not pinch my toes. Maybe the different colors would look better, but the taupe is a nope. I cannot justify the amount I spent and I will be returning them.

I own this shoe in two colors. I love them! I wear an 8.5 medium and it is completely true to size. My biggest concern is how flexible the shoe is when walking - and these shoes flex enough so you don't look like you are walking with boards on your feet. Secondly, I need to be able to stand in them for 12 hours - the toe box is soft and comfortable. I am accustomed to a high heel - so the height doesn't bother me like it does others. I wish they would introduce new colors this year!

The strap falls down, but I like the look, so I don't mind. I enjoy the height it allows. Not too much not too little.

I didn't really like the look of the shoe once it arrived. The front is not comfortable. The twist goes off to the side or something and squishes my toes. The footbed was comfortable and the heel was great too. Unfortunately the toe area was just too tight for me. I ordered a 9.5W as well as a 10W. It's true to length, but the width just isn't enough. My big toe, and ball of foot was just too squished.

I own several pairs of Bella-Vita shoes and thought I could never be disappointed with this brand...but these particular shoes are an inferior product overall. At first glance they are cute just out of the box, but when you examine them closely, the craftsmanship does not live up to the Bella-Vita standards I've come to expect. The shoes are more like a cheap imitation brand, poor quality materials and construction. Also, I normally wear a size 5 in a Bella-Vita shoe, this style shoe runs at least a 1/2 size larger, even by tightening the cheap elastic strap attached to the inferior designed buckle. Sorry girls, but I had to return these shoes.

I'd also recommend: Softspots
