I am a dancer and hope to clarify some fitting questions about these lovely shoes. They are built like a literal ballet slipper, meant to wear like a little leather sock, but in this case the sole is rubber instead of suede, and the whole shoe is made to withstand more than a few rehearsals. The stretching and toe bumps are the result of the shoe's ability to conform precisely to your foot and the way you move, very like a dancer's shoe. The break-in time happens quickly in these shoes because a dance shoe needs to be usable right away, and the less it keeps its shape and takes on yours, the better. If you are narrow-footed, get your true size. I have long, narrow slippers that run between a 9½ and 10½ (with a half-size difference from one foot to the other), and am frankly astounded by the perfect fit of size 10 after only a day or so of wear. I have three pairs and wear them everywhere, including onstage. It is hard to choose, but my white naplaks are my favorites and I like patent leather that feels like it has been broken-in better than your favorite sneakers. They can take a little more wet weather, too. I live in my Sloops and now suffer less from awful foot cramps because my foot is not fighting a shoe when I walk. These are made to become uniquely yours as you wear them. I would not trade mine for anything!

Great at first but after 2 amazing weeks they stretched out a size! It's hard to wear them at this point and I've had them less than a month. But what a great first 2 weeks.

I bought these true to my size and as mentioned by others they are kind of tight. I having been walking around the house with large wool socks on trying to break them in. They look really great and I hope they become the great broken in shoe that folks say they will be esp for the price. They are great material. And the color is great. I am just worried that I may have committed to shoes that are a touch to small and now I have broken them in beyond return...

Love these shoes, a bit tight at first but after wearing them a few times they fit like a glove, like ballet shoes. The leather is very soft and they look great.

I really like French Sole Sloop and have several colors colors in both suede and smooth leather. These seemed a little shorter than my other pairs at first. But I remember reading another review that said to think of them as ballet slippers that stretch and mold to your feet. And they did, of course. They are so comfortable, especially if you enjoy some sensation of the surface you are walking on. I suppose if you need arch supports, or cushioning, they would not be a good choice. But I am 65 and like the stylish and classy minimalism of this flat shoe.

These shoes are so adorable! I decided to go with my usual size 7 but I felt like they were digging into the top of my. I tried breaking them in at home for three days but there was no improvement, so I exchanged them for a half size larger. They didn't have black in 7.5 so I went with brown. The 7.5 felt better but as I wear them in they fit to big. I like them but I don't love them as much as I love my Patagonia flats!

I am not going to mark down an item just because of a particular foot problem I have. I've noticed other reviews do that and think it unfair to the reason we review. However, I should have known better than to order a shoe with NO cushioning in the foot bed. But, they seemed such a good choice for the type of slipper I am looking for. In other words, not our typical slipper looking slipper. These would have been good had there been any cushioning in the sole and I knew that going in to the purchase! Dumb but hopeful? The 7 1/2, my normal size was too small. As another reviewer commented so very wonderfully, the shoe will conform to your foot. Well, there was WAY too much to conform to on my regular 7 1/2 size. The 8 however would have been workable had I wanted to wear pads, like Dr. Scholl's double cushioned pads. But, alas I did not as I will be in a place with several other people and if I take them off, which I will, the ugly pad is there for all to see. Sort of ruins the overall image, at least I think it - the pads - do. BUT for someone not needing cushioning they are great and should be very comfortable and do not look like your grandma's or grandpa's slippers. I really did like them and really tried.
