I have been looking for a breathable and comfortable ballet flat and I've finally found one after over a year of very active searching (I'm pretty picky about things being comfortable as I tend to get pain in the little bunions behind my pinky toes and I hate it when my shoes get smelly!). These shoes are really flexible and soft and there is no pressure on sensitive bunion areas and no red marks or blisters around the edges; even in the back. I have a very thin foot so I had to choose a smaller size so my heel wouldn't slip out (I was between a 7.5 and an 8) and I haven't had any problems. I have the black and I've been wearing it every day since I've had it for 3 weeks - with jeans, with casual skirts & even slacks to work. I've just ordered a second pair and a third one in retro khaki (only on the Patagonia website) in case they stop making this soon! The mesh part just looks like fabric from afar and looks pretty stylish while keeping your feet cool. The sole is just the right size and this shoe keeps my foot pretty stable and it does not slide around or tend to any one side. I was even able to put Smartfeet inserts (size C) inside the 7.5's but they are a little wider than the shoe so it reduces the space inside but it works if your feet are thin and if they are a tad shorter than the shoe. I recommend this! The mesh goes all the way through to the sole (under the front toe leather) so there is no irritating strip on the inside where the mesh meets the leather.

Yikes! Loved this shoe when I first got it and wore it around the house to try it out. Very cute and seemed like great travel shoe. But once I actually started really walking in it, it became incredibly uncomfortable! Gave me massive blisters, and I had to buy a new pair of shoes in the middle of my trip.

These shoes are so light and very comfortable right away--and I have a hard time finding shoes that feel good. They are so cute that I'm going to get them in another color also. They are great for travel because they don't add any weight to your suitcase, and they pack almost flat.

I bought these shoes to wear for a trip to Italy and Greece. I wanted something that would be comfortable for moderately intensive walking and also look good with dresses and these definitely exceed my expectations! They are very cute, incredibly comfortable and breathable with the mesh. I have worn them around my hometown and anticipate that they will serve their purpose in Europe as I expect.

So very comfortable! They were out of my usual 7.5, so I ordered a 7. For the first few wears, they were a little tight, but soon stretched just enough to fit like a glove.

1,000 words might not be enough! I bought these shoes for a trip to Nepal -- just back last night -- and I wore them the whole time. I mean it. I climbed up to the World Peace Pagoda in pouring, driving rain in them (they did not even slip); I walked the bricked streets of Kathmandu and the dirt streets of Bhaktapur in them. They are amazing. They breathe wondrously, they're light as can be, yet they protect you from stones and they don't deteriorate under VERY challenging wear. I'm no fashionista, but I'd wear them just about anywhere short of a soiree. They even seem to clean themselves. Please, don't ever let Patagonia retire this shoe. I even ordered second pairs in brown and black. I love them so much. I usually go bare-footed whenever possible, but this morning I found myself wearing these shoes around the house. They are so comfortable.

These shoes feel like slippers, supremely comfortable and cool. If you wish you could wear flip-flops but they are too casual, this is a great summer substitute. With so much mesh in the shoe, it is impossible to get sweaty feet. The bonus is that they are well-padded on the bottom, so very comfortable to stand in all day or walk anywhere. Looks good with shorts, dresses, or trousers. From eye-level just a classic ballet slipper, the mesh looks solid.

Love these shoes! Cute and comfortable. They feel like you're barefoot, but the sole is surprisingly tough. I keep waiting to step on something and feel it through the sole, but it hasn't happened yet. After reading the reviews I bought a size 10. I wear anything from a 9.5-10.5. The 10 felt small at first but is just right after a few days of wear. No heel slippage and no blisters. I also bought the Maha but returned it – too stiff and uncomfortable compared to these.

These shoes are very nice. They are well made and cool on the feet. There is no arch support so I added low seated inserts. The size is about a half size large. I may wear a 9.5 or 10, so in these the 9.5 fit fine. I have two pair and one in reserve. I highly recommend them.

Very comfortable. They felt oddly large on my Fred Flintstone feet at first, so I thought I'd put in insoles to keep 'em from slipping off my heels- ended up taking out the insoles and had not problem with the heels slipping. Kept my feet wonderfully cool on a recent trip to St. Louis, where the temps were 80 degrees with 75% humidity. Highly recommend.

Absolutely love these shoes! They are incredibly comfortable and breathable without sacrificing style-- just what I wanted for summer. They do run pretty big, I usually wear a 7.5-8 and had to exchange these for a 7 for the right fit in the black. I also ordered them in the dragonfruit color and it seems they don't run quite as small, wishing I'd ordered a 7.5. Be aware that the nature of the sole does turn the soles of your feet completely black with each wear but it's a small price to pay for such comfort.

I absolutely love these shoes. As a teacher, I am on my feet a lot standing, walking, keeping up with kids. It is rare for me to find a pair of shoes that do not rub some part of my foot by the end of the day. These don't! They're terrific! The only thing I don't like about them is they dye my feet black. No biggie, but it looks pretty gross.

Nice looking basic flat. Very comfortable. I own quite a few pairs of flats and they all either slip off my heel easily or rub my heel raw (I wear bandaids on my heels often with certain pairs). These fit fantastic and are comfortable, don't slip off and don't rub my feet in the wrong way. Will be checking out Patagonias other flats for sure!

I love these shoes. They fit great. There is no rubbing or pinching anywhere and they are incredibly light weight. I teach elementary school and am on my feet most of the day so it is very important to me to find shoes my feet can tolerate for 10+ hours at a time. These are close to perfect.

These shoes are great. The first time I wore them I got a blister on my ankle, but after it healed, they have been awesome. I wear them all the time and they are super comfortable. They run true to size. I recommend them.
