I just got these shoes today, and straight out of the box, they fit like a glove--as if they were made for my foot. The metallic color is sophisticated, but still stylish, however, the hue is very similar to my skin. I'm not sure if I like that, and was hoping for something that would have more pop. I haven't decided if I will keep them or not yet, but they are a beautiful shoe.

Felt great when I first slipped my feet into them, but after walking around in them for awhile, I realized they are awful! The main issue I can see is that they have no lasting structural integrity; due to the softness of the leather, the sides and back start to buckle in such a way that the shoe loses its shape. You can see the reason for the issue in the video here. If you look closely, you'll see the model's foot arch is partly exposed, and there is a gap. I think if you have high arches, like me, there isn't as much for the shoe to cling to as you wear it. And again, the leather is so soft that it ends up sagging. It sounds like I would need to try a size down to solve the problem, but that is not it.

I bought these in September 2014, so I have been wearing them weekly for seven months. Some observations: 1) I bought my size, though they pinched a *wee* bit, in anticipation of the shoes stretching out. They did. Seven months in, they're now a half size too big because they've stretched out. 2) No discoloration and generally the leather has held up, even though I wear them all. the. time. 3) Unfortunately, as pointed out by another reviewer, after a few months, the shoe loses its shape entirely: the sides and the back have lost its shape entirely. Very disappointing, given the price point!

Very stylish flats in a lovely light gray blue color - great for work and the weekends. Show just a bit of "toe cleavage". The leather is super soft from day 1. No real arch support but these are very comfy for casual walking. Not sure yet how good they will look when I inevitably spill something on them! Would definitely buy them in more colors.

I ordered the Charcoal Antique in size 8. I was hoping for a dark grey, the color was more a brownish grey. I am usually a size 8 but these were too small so I would probably be an 8.5 in these. I returned them as the color wasn't what I really wanted.

I'm pretty picky about shoes. Comfort is king, and these shoes are just that - comfortable. The leather is supple and cut low enough in the heel, unlike so many that are chapping your Achilles. Fortunately, they're also attractive, whether with a dress or under jeans. I got them in 2 colors.

Love! These shoes are very comfortable. I had to order a half size up. Definitely run short/small.
