I am a dancer and I have always loved Bloch ballet shoes, so I thought I'd try their street shoes. This shoe has absolutely amazing construction. It is a quality shoe, no doubt. The leather is so soft and buttery, and the soles have padding to cushion your feet if you do a lot of walking. My pair was way too big, so my suggestion would be to go at least a half size down from your normal shoe size if not a whole. Also, the upper doesn't come very far up over the toes, so it leaves a little "toe-cleavage". All in all a gorgeous shoe, though!

I really can't review the fit or comfort of this shoe because I returned it without trying it on. It is described as 'Sable' in color and is included in a search for 'Brown' shoes, but it is neither sable nor brown; it is green, and a rather faded, grey-olive green at that. not an attractive color and not what I needed, so back it goes. Pity, because it looked like a very cute flat.

I just received these shoes in the fuchsia and black. Love them! They feel so comfy and the style is adorable. Great casual shoes, and a true to size fit!

I saw this shoe in an upscale London Department Store. They didn\'t have my size so I purchased it in a different color but I am back to Zappos to get this one. I agree it runs small. I wear a 9 and the 40 fits me very well. This color combination is elegant and beautiful and looks great on the foot! Very chic.

Bought it in the beige/black style. Love it. Does run about 1/2 a size to a full size smaller, but wore them straight out of box with no problems and I have super sensitive feel. Elastic keeps my super narrow heel from slipping out, but never has cut into the back as so many elastic heels do. Sturdier than I would have thought, and a well padded heel. Also looks very similar to a Chanel shoe. It's classic and basic wardrobe piece. Very happy and will buying more Bloch ballet slippers.

First of all these are beautiful shoes. There's always a risk of looking like a little girl when you wear ballets or Mary Janes but these are both cute and elegant, and they're so sharp-looking in person. The patent leather is super pretty and the black to bright color two-tone make these ballets pop. They are absurdly comfortable, like slipper socks. As always Zappos is my favorite place to shop. They bend over backwards to ensure your shopping experience is a great one.

These shoes are so cute and very classy. They look a little Chanel-like, and they're well made. I think that these shoes aren't as comfortable as the other ballet flat styles. You can see from the picture that they curve up (gather) a bit, which means that they take a bit more breaking in. However, they are super comfy on wear #2, and they look great. I bought the teal/black combo, and they add a nice pop of color to my outfits. I wear a 7.5-8 in ballet flats (8 in Cole Haan), and I wear an 8 in these.

Brands I'd also recommend: Cole Haan

Cute shoes, but runs a size small. Sole is a little thin, but relatively still comfortable.

This is my second pair of these versatile and comfortable flats. I literally wore the first pair out (after several years!) Extremely comfortable! But the best surprise was Zappos service-they arrived the very next day and I hadn't picked over-nite delivery. Thank you.

I love this shoe but my only recommendation is to order one full size up. It is comfy, soft, perfect. I usually wear the Cole Haan Air Bacara Ballet but found this just as comfortable.

Brands I'd also recommend: sofft, cole haan, stuart weitzman, frye, sam edelman

Classic, classy, comfortable, ballet flat la Coco Chanel. Leather lining and sole are soft and comfortable. I can wear this color combination with many outfits in my closet.

Brands I'd also recommend: Ivanka Trump, Maria Sharapova for Cole Haan

The skin of my feet is sensitive, and I am especially complicated with flats - most of them bother me somewhere around the edge (either the back of the heel, or the front where the edge of the shoe touches my skin). These flats are absolutely unbelievable. I have never owned or tried on a more comfortable pair in my life. They feel more comfortable than sneakers! It's unreal. I bought them and took them on a trip last month, and used them to walk for miles. There was no break down period - they were comfortable from day 1. Very soft and flexible material, with cushiony sole. I highly recommend! Regarding sizing, they are pretty true to size, but they are more comfortable if you buy half a size bigger. That's what I did and they fit perfectly. The only thing about them I don't like, is the bow. It's made of elastic and becomes untied every once in a while. I'm considering cutting it off. But hey! I am happy to deal with the bow if it means I get to wear the most comfortable (and stylish) shoes ever. Thank you Bloch!
