I hate to give this shoe a bad review, but they are very narrow...no, you gotta be kidding me! Kind of narrow. I have wide feet, but usually can deal with B/M width designer shoes. So, knowing that Ferragamos run narrow I ordered, not B, not C, but D width. Did I want to get fun color shoe? Of course. But fun colors don't come in D. So, I got the black. What I got is beyond disappointment. The D width is similar to narrow width in any other brand. I am not kidding - I measured. 8D shoe was 3 inches at the widest part. My Chanel classic ballet flats in B are 3.25". My Chloe B width scalloped edge flats are 3.25". These shoes in extre wide were narrower that any other shoe in Medium. And they are patent leather that does not stretch as much to boot.

Awesome shoes, but too big! So stylish - easy to dress up or down. Beware, I ordered a size 5.5 (which turns out to be a size 37 European but they didn't advertise this and I normally wear a European size 36). Anyway, order a 1/2 size smaller than you normally wear in US sizes.

These shoes are a large size 9. I normally wear 9 AA and maybe an 8 1\/2 would be a better choice.

I love these shoes but they are very narrow and a little long. I had to really stretch them out and ended up with blisters the first few wearings. I should have probably returned them and gotten the wides elsewhere (they do sell wides, they are just harder to find). Now that they are stretched out though, I love the way they look.

Ferragamos were the only shoe my mother could wear in the 1940s and 1950s, because her feet were long and narrow. I inherited those exact feet, and Ferragamo Varinas are simply the most comfortable, sumptuous shoes I own. Plus, they fit from the second I put them on. No blisters. These do run narrow, so perfect for those of us with narrow feet. Agreed about the slippery leather undersole, but as my mother taught me: go outside and scuff them up on your patio! You'll be good to go. It would cheapen them to have a rubber sole with traction. Absolutely simple, elegant shoes which last forever. Iconic. Love these shoes!

Love these shoes, classy and nice! It goes with everything! I finally purchased them. I wore it for the first time and the sole chipped in the front, Zappos sent me a new one, I added a sole protector. I wish I could afford it in more colors. It's a beautiful shoe!

Such a great shoe! I got the red in my usual size (5.5) and they fit perfectly. Going a half size up would have been way too big. They're fairly comfortable, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to add an insert for more comfort. The red is so pretty in person. It's my first pair of Ferragamos and I'm sure it won't be the last. I would highly recommend this shoe.

Beautiful shoe that can be dressed up or down. I'm on my fret a lot at work and these provide excellent support with great style that allows me to feel feminine and professional. The color is also great for fall; goes with everything!

These shoes are perfect in every way! Am a wheelchair user who will be judging in the Ms. Wheelchair America 2104 Pageant this week in Houston, Texas and will wear these with my feminine tux for crowning ceremonies! These shoes are also appropriate for business, dress up, church -- and ever so many other occasions when you want "simple elegance".

Brands I'd also recommend: I RECCOMEND ZAPPOS because I can find all types of flats in my size from boots to Minnetonka moccasins !

I am typically a 7.5 in narrow shoes, and this shoe fit true to size. The shoes gave me a blister on the top of my foot the first time I walked a long distance in them (at least 2 miles), but they were broken in after that. They do not have great arch support, but I have not been able to find an attractive flat in narrow that does. Many flats have even less arch support. The bottom line is that these shoes are reasonably comfortable and very cute. The style is versatile--I thought they might be too stuffy looking, but the lava patent color makes them playful. They look good with casual clothes or work clothes. I would recommend them.

Gorgeous! Beautiful! Timeless! The color is even more gorgeous in person! Thanks for reviewers that recommended wearing them more to work them in. They get more comfortable the more often you wear them. Thanks Zappos for the outstanding customer service and super fast shipping!

Brands I'd also recommend: These are more comfortable than Tory Burch Reva :)

These are gorgeous shoes. I wish Zappos sold more women's Ferragamo styles in a narrow width. I have worn Ferragamo shoes for over 20 years they are fabulous.

I purchased the lava and they are a little more pinkish/salmon in person and absolutely gorgeous. Zappos has an amazing selection in both size and color. My true size is a 5.5 (though I can wear a 5 and 6 depending on the brand). The 5.5 were too long (with a sizable gap in the back) but extremely tight and uncomfortable. I returned them and ordered a size 5 in the C width (which I've only seen on Zappos!) and they fit perfectly.

You simply can not purchase better dress shoes. The navy color is extremely hard to find, these shoes are timeless.

Beautiful shoes but fit tight. Size in length seems true but the width is a bit more narrow than a usual B width.
