Beautiful and very comfortable shoe but the light colored lining shows too much contrast.

Really soft and comfy, but they run really small.

These shoes are beautiful and extremely comfortable! I may be able to help if you're undecided on whether to order a half size larger than normal. If you're feet are on the narrow side you're probably okay to order your regular size. However, my feet are slightly wider than average. The leather is so soft that it will spread to the width of your foot and you lose some of the length. I went up a half size and they fit perfectly. They're slightly snug at the top of my foot but they stretched a little even during the short time I wore them at home yesterday. The toe area is larger and more comfortable than most ballet flats. I ordered bronze and love the color. After wearing them for a few weeks to make sure I still love them, I plan to order black as well.

Love these shoes! Very stylish and super comfortable. The stitching across the sides looks very elegant. A bit pricey but worth it. They ran a little small. I am always an 8 and needed to exchange for an 8.5.

Had a surprisingly hard time finding comfortable, classic black ballet flats... but these are great so far. I sized up to a 7.5 from my usual 7 and they fit well.

I collect French Sole shoes. Some run truer to size than others.

Love these shoes! I ordered a half size down at first based on the reviews of others but they were uncomfortably tight, so I ordered my true size and am very happy.

Really small! Even ordering a half size up as recommended was not enough. Shoes are really cute but not available now in size needed.

Cute but painful. The first pair I ordered arrived already used, the replacement pair had one shoe wider/longer than the other. Both marked the same size. One pair arrived with a white interior and the other with a natural camel colored interior. These shoes tore up my heels, rubbing in all the wrong places. After wearing them around the house they never softened up or stretched to fit, just kept making my feet sore. I am not sure why they get such good reviews from people. Have tried multiple colors now and each one leaves my feet in pain.

Beautiful shoe but too tight through the forefoot. I have absolutely no arch so if you are a "flat foot" and size 10 this shoe may be to small.

Super cute. These suede ones fit much bigger than the regular leather ones. I didn't really have to break these in. Hoping they hold up well!

I originally ordered my size 8. I needed half a size up. Now they are perfect and I love my Sloops. They totally conformed to the shape of my foot.

I got the silvery grey version of these for knocking around the building (we live in an apartment but I'm up and down all day running errands). They're fine for that. They feel sturdy enough to get me through the summer. I did go down a half size from my usual and can tell that was the right decision. They are a little squeezed in the toes but I can tell a larger size would be too big. Also my feet are squared off so most almond-shaped toes do this to me. I recommend although not at the current price!

READ IF YOU ARE ORDERING RED PAIR. I really wanted a red pair of these shoes to wear as I love having a pop of red in my outfit. However, when these shoes arrived they were definitely not red, they were more of a hot fuchsia or dark pink. So if that is what you are looking for, these are great shoes but they are definitely not red.

After reading the reviews, I ordered my normal size 9. (Also, my feet are neither narrow nor wide but I have bunions.) When the shoes arrived, I tried them on and found that they were incredibly tight and short. I was ready to pack them up and return them but I remembered what others had said: they loosen quickly. And yes, that's absolutely true. I wore them around the house for a few hours and now they are very soft and comfortable. The toe box area is the last thing to soften and conform to your foot. I am very glad that I did not order a half-size up. The shoes would be falling off my feet now.

I have flat feet & had to wear Merrell clogs all of the time, which are not very feminine. then, I found this shoe, which has a perfect last. I buy them in every color I can, & Zappos always has a full stock, in my size. I love Zappos!

I first thought these shoes were too small, but an earlier review - by a dancer - convinced me to give the fit another chance. Indeed, these "fit like a glove", but they also mold snugly and comfortably to my foot, like a good kid glove. I love them and will buy more. Does it help anyone to know I am 70, not 25?

Just too snug in the toe box for me. I have a slightly higher arch and a snug toe box is a deal breaker. I have read the reviews about not buying above your normal size even though they feel snug. I think they would be too loose--after wearing in-- if I ordered any larger than my usual size 7.

I ordered these in both a 9 & 9.5, because of conflicting advice on whether to size up in this brand or not. It was an "almost perfect" shoe for me. There isn't much arch support or sole thickness, so it fits more like a true ballet flat or minimalist shoe. That said, my issue was more with the sides of the shoe, which were a little gappy. My feet are narrow at the heel & wide in the toebox, but they're thin with a mid-to-high arch... these would be better suited to someone with a thicker, wider foot. I wanted to love them, but it was not to be!! Someone else will enjoy them immensely!!
