I love these heels!! I got so many compliments on them. They're sexy and edgy at the same time. They are much more comfortable than they look like they'd be. They fit true to size and are great quality. I highly recommend!!

Really cute. The iridescence and the color promise they'll go with almost everything. True to size.

I was really excited to receive this pair of sandals in the mail and at first all seemed just fine. They seem to be well made and I appreciate that since they put a buckle on this shoe they utilized instead of just putting in a zipper like most manufacturers. However, this is why I always wish the pictures included an actual foot in the shoe so you can estimate how and where it will fit. When I put these on I found that the final straps at the end hit me an an odd spot right on the joints connecting my toes. Besides being uncomfortable it also made it possible for the front half of my foot to fall out of the shoe. That being said I imagine this is the perfect fit for someone out there, just not me.

The padding on the footbed is so comfortable - too bad the straps across the toes are so tight!! I wore out once and can't return so I am praying that they will stretch out and become comfortable. But right now, they cut into my pretty badly. Also, while I don't have a problem with faux leather in general, these came with a couple nicks/scratches that made them look a little cheaper. Still, the overall style is so cute.

I loved the very on-trend metallic strap on the saddle/gold color and sporty look of these sandals and am a huge fan of Sam Edelman's easy styling (I have four pairs of the Gigi and Gracie sandals and love all the color choices in those lines). However, the white sole on these sandals is much more apparent in person and the fit of these did not work for me - I ordered my usual size 9.5 and was swimming in them. The buckle hardware quality is pretty cheap, too. I was so looking forward to wearing these this summer with maxi dresses and cut-offs, but they were a total miss for me.

Super cute shoe and they usually fit but this one was way too big. This brand I usually order 1/2 size up because it usually runs short but this shoe was then way too wide. Returning.

I hesitated to buy this flat but decided to go for it after reading the reviews. I am a size 9.5 or 10, medium width but can use a wide if I go down to a size 9. I only own two pairs of shoes in wide, most often the medium width shoes/boots fit me better. Well, not in this case. This is a horrible fitting shoe. I've ordered a 9.5 and a 10. The size made no difference. They are seriously narrow. The opening in the picture looks bigger to me, I thought the seam will not go on my right foot bunion but rather cover it a bit. I was wrong, it goes directly on it and it is painful beyond belief. The leather is awful too. The whole look isn't great at all. The fact that is so open looks out of proportion and very ugly. I am a big fan of Italian shoes so unfortunately for this shoe I have high standards. This is not worth the effort. It could work for someone with very narrow feet, I guess just as an every day below average shoe but overall it lacks quality materials and good design.

They look great; they're simple black flats that pretty much go with anything. Really: anything! The only downside is that they don't have a great sole so for me my heel hurts after walking more than 10 blocks in them. But other than that, they're great shoes!! Oh and I had to put small inserts by the front of them so that they wouldn't slide off my feet when walking yet the half size up was too small and the half size down was too tight.

Love these! The "orange" color description definitely isn't accurate, these are 100% neon red without any hint of orange. But I like the color even better than I expected. You also get what you pay for here, they aren't real leather, and you have to buckle/unbuckle every time you wear them. But they are comfortable and the bright color pops with most anything. I will get a lot of wear out of these on my upcoming beach vacation. Love!

Meh... I'm normally a 6 1/2 or 7 size. Ordered the 6 because reviews suggest to size down. Which was great, a little snug width but it will stretch. Upon opening the shoe box when I got the shipment today was a big disappointment. There's a stain right on the right size of the shoe where the white part is... I can't keep it I will if the shoe is not white base since it's really obvious. also on the same shoe black part of the shoe has some white paint residue... I didn't even bother taking the left shoe out to check. Sadly it's going back to Zappos. going to stick with Sam Edelman and not Circus.

I was very surprised at how uncomfortable these shoes were. While yes, I do have issues on occasion with swelling, these shoes are for those with narrow feet, maybe those with narrow-regular feet. They are very cute, but not at all for those with feet issues.

I really liked these shoes but they were extremely tight on my feet and I do have skinny twig feet. I wore them around the house and it bothered a tad bit but overall I think you can just get used to them, at least depending on your feet type. Overall they are cute and comfy, padding wise!

I absolutely love these sneakers! They are super cushiony and that thick bottom make them very chic. They look great with harem pants, rolled up jeans, a-line skirts and pencil skirts. The possibilities are endless...

I adore these shoes, but my heel slips out when I walk. There is no support so I would have to wear my orthotics -- the orthotics also make my heel slip out. If I size down, the orthotics would not fit (and the shoe has no arch support so I can't wear it without the orthotics for more than an hour or two).

Great boot! Comfortable enough to walk around all day in. Very cute style, with a great toe shape.

This shoe is way too narrow across the toe portion. The straps across are way too tight, and so tight that even w/wear they would never be comfortable. I think they were made as a narrow rather than a regular size.

These shoes look great in person, very comfortable and very stylish. Great for the weekend or to spice up an outfit during the work week. Super light too, and comfortable padding.

I bought these shoes for my daughter. She loved them. Shoes fit well and are very much in style.

Put them on, and the size 10 was too small. Very narrow in the toe, and too much toe cleavage. Too bad because they are super cute and love the color. But didn't want to fight with blisters.

Felt much smaller than an 8.5. The contrasting vamp and heel leathers are an interesting touch but toe box feels extremely tight. I'm returning these and not sure if I'll bother to try them in a larger size.

I wasn't blown away by these flats. They're cute, but I found the bow accent too large and distracting. The back also comes up fairly high on the heel and rubbed quite a bit--partially because the perforated fabric was a bit rough. Sad but I'm sending them back because the comfort level did not match the price for me.
