Generally, with any new pair of shoes, especially flats, the breaking-in period is always painful for me. I've had these shoes on all day for the first time and have not experienced little-to-no discomfort. Definitely recommend the floral on black pair, very cute and not too busy on the eyes.

Contrary to other reviews, these shoes are so uncomfortable that I am returning them. They hurt my feet the minute I put them on, so back they go.

I love these shoes, they are my go to work shoes with dresses. They are comfy, and basic black without looking like an old woman. A great, nice, basic black flat.

Nice, comfy, flat. It's perfect for everyday casual. Looks like leather and wears well.

Shoe looks great, but back of shoe cuts into my heel. Hence returning shoes.

I love these shoes. Some of the bad reviews I don't understand... bagging plastic? Maybe I'm wrong but they feel very leathery to me, and the inside is supersoft... nothing plasticy about it. I got a size 8 which I wear normally. They were a little snug, but after wearing a couple of times they fit great. And they are so comfortable! I got them in tan and black. As far as arch support goes... they are flats... they do have a little cushion.

Super comfy right out of the box. I have wide feet and they were perfect! I took them on vacation right after I got them and wore them sightseeing. No problems. Perfect neutral color...really do go with everything. I ordered several much more expensive flats and they all went back except these!

I have very narrow feet, so they are a little wide, but totally wearable. They are so comfortable. I feel like I have on slippers, but they look nice and are totally going to be my work staple! I love these!

I have wide feet with high arches and these shoes are so comfy! I might just order another pair in a different color. The inside feels velvety.

These are pretty plain, bordering on boring. I honestly do not mind plain too much, but I ended up sending these back. The soles have a slight cushion, but the back of the shoe is cut high and rubs the back of your heel. The distressed black is a cute dark gray. They run true to size.

Love the color and uniqueness of this shoe. I did feel it ran a bit small, as I have always worn an 8.5 and this was a little tight. However, not unwearable, and I will keep them as I like the pattern so much.

I bought these shoes based on the very positive reviews but when I got them, I was seriously disappointed. Not only are they flimsy and cheaply made, but they are too wide in the heel and too narrow in the toe. Also, the toe is too low - my big toe was pressing against the material of the shoe and probably would have worn it down eventually. The pressure made them really uncomfortable. They have no arch support to speak of and wouldn't stay on my feet. Skip these. They're not worth it.

These shoes are really unattractive. The picture implies that the shoes will mold to your feet once they are on, but they do not. The plastic that these shoes are made of bag and bulge as you're walking.

I love these shoes except for the size issue which make them unbearable for more than two hours of wear. I originally returned these and got half a size larger and I thought that the 7½ would break in and it would be perfect but that is not the case. If you have wide feet, I would recommend going a full size up.

These are so cute & comfortable. A little too big for me, but not so much they fall off my feet. Wish they had a size smaller but they don't.

These are my favorite shoes ever! I got my first pair here at Zappos (which I had to reorder after my corgi pup chewed them up), and I now have 5 pairs in different colors/materials - and I would love to have even more. they are comfortable (I have a bone spur on my foot that is so painful in other shoes, but these don't bother it at all), they dress up or down, and are the perfect shoe for me to live in.

Super cute shoes. However, I wear a size 9, medium width and these felt a bit snug. I would say order a half size larger.

I was looking for a good pair of travel flats for a while, and I'm so glad I found these. They came in right before my trip, so I literally threw them on before heading to the airport. They are so comfortable! I walked 4,000 steps in them that first day and it was as though they were already broken in. I will say the lining makes my feet sweat a little bit, and the back of the shoe kind of rubbed the back of my foot because it is so high, but these are tolerable because the comfort. Really great shoes!

I thought this was a cute pair of shoes for work. They look exactly like this picture. They are flats (which I wanted so I did not expect cushioning. Personally I am comfortable. They arrived faster than the expected delivery date I was given and that was awesome. I would definitely utilize Zappos.com again.

I've bought these flats before, and they are great! I like a snugger fit for flats because they usually stretch no matter what material they are. I'm between a 6.5 and a 7 and I ordered and kept the 6.5. Once they break in (takes a couple wears), they're fantastic!

Very nice flats. I wear them a lot. They only rubbed on my heels the first time I wore them, but once I broke them in I wear them without any discomfort. Well made too!

These are adorable but the sizing is off. I ordered a 9 and they felt like an 8 so I ordered a 10. The 10 was about half a size too small.
