Fellow Zappies: I bought these in green and they're adorable and a great color (many great colors this season) but I'll be darned if the toes on my left foot didn't hit the top of the shoe as soon as I stuck my dainty Size 11 inside (touching the suede itself not the rubber edge of the front). Being a Charter Member of the Clown Foot Club, I've come to expect this especially since my left foot is longer than the right. I paced back & forth on my bathroom floor for a while and within about 10 minutes I no longer felt my toes bumping against the suede. I guess you just have to ''De-Curl'' them by walking in them a bit. Gee, am I sharp as a marble or what? Let's face it, these shoes come to you looking like they were manufactured by the Keebler Elves. They curl up, but once I realized that's the result of the soft, giving suede material being glued to the trademark Keen ''rubber tire'' bottom, they were bound to end up looking like that. Bottom Line: I'm keeping them. They're comfy with bare feet. Again, I'm a size 11 M, (sometimes 12/43 depending on the brand) w/ feet that are wide through the ball of the foot / toe area. Still I will walk through the valley of Death with no fear of blistering. THAT ALONE IS WORTH THE PRICE, with my picky Piggies! I'm 5'10'' and just turned 54. Ques: Is it me or are any other 50-something Zappos having issues w/ toes? I think mine are starting to pull up...kind of (?) Can't describe it exactly; I think I'm beginning to get my mother's feet (the band REM was right when they sang, ''it's the end of the World as we know it"). Anyway, buy these!

Great casual shoe! The color is nice and vibrant but not too bright, so it goes well with a variety of colors. The fit is good - does not rub the heel and plenty of room in the toe box. I wear these for running errands, casual walks around town (most I've done is a mile and a half), playground with my kids, etc. Side notes 1) the sole is not removable so no room for inserts and 2) I used the Nikwax suede cleaner and waterproofer on these and they look great. Maybe a hint darker but not enough to notice. Follow the directions and moisten the shoe first.

Disappointed in this shoe because I really liked them when I pulled them out of the box. They were exactly what I was looking for in a casual/comfort/active ballerina style shoe. Then I put one on. It fit correctly in every way except it was too short in the toe box, maybe a little looser than the fit I have in other shoes I own, but not so loose as to require me to return it. The big issue was the toe box noted by a couple other reviewers. They were so right. My toes were up against the tip of the shoe. Ordering a 1/2 size, or possibly a full size up, was out of the question as the shoe wouldn't fit elsewhere. It's just not proportioned properly for my foot -- a problem I usually don't experience. I tried a Teva ballerina model: the back of the shoe bit into the underside of my ankle, but was proportioned correctly. I returned them, too. I've tried Merrells, whose mules and slides I wear religiously, but returned because their shoes are too tight across the top. Same with Timberland, whose shoes are just too narrow for my foot. I finally gave up on the ballerina style in an active/casual/comfort and went with a mary jane style from Jambu -- love them. They look like they will hold up, are really comfortable and well made. So my recommendation is forget a ballerina style in this category of shoe and check out Jambu shoes. I love Zappos as much as my new shoes because of the great customer service -- thanks Zappos!

I'm always on the lookout for comfortable but stylish walking shoes since I walk a mile to work and back but then have to teach in front of young adults. I don't want to look like a typical dowdy professor. My go-to shoes were Clarks Privos, but I have been disappointed in the last few years with their durability and lack of new styles. I recently ordered a pair of these Keen's and have been very happy with them. They were comfortable literally from the moment I put them on...no break-in time at all, although I'm very happy I ordered a half-size up from my usual 9's. Ballet flats, if they cause problems, usually rub on the back of the ankle or cut across the top of that tendon running down from my big toe. These shoes didn't bother either of those places. I also liked the grey rubber sole coming up from the toe of the shoe as I felt they made my feet look smaller. It remains to be seen how durable they are...the heels of my Privos have been rubbing down to the under-material in literally a month. I don't think there's as much padding and arch support as the Privos, but on the other hand, the mesh will hopefully make these shoes cooler in the summer. I ordered in the Norse Blue and it was a beautiful color. I wish they had them in navy, but I'm going to place another order in red just to add a pop of color on my feet.

Let me just say that these shoes are adorable. I got them in green and I'm already contemplating ordering the red. The foot bed is really comfortable; however, I have experienced a little rubbing on the tops of my feet that resulted in sore red marks. I'm hoping that the shoes will continue to stretch and mold to my feet. It seems like they will. I would say they're true to size, at first they felt a tad big but I think that's just how they fit because my toes are in the right place. I was on my feet all day and did not experience any discomfort beyond the rubbing that I mentioned. No pain whatsoever in my arches or balls of my feet. I'm pleased with these shoes! I plan on taking them to Disney soon which will be the ultimate test.
