These shoes are great and comfortable. I wore them with a brown dress to an outdoor wedding, and they were perfect. I was having trouble with one of my feet all week, and I totally forgot about it wearing these shoes all day. They had the perfect shimmer to dress up a day attire, and I wasn't sinking into the grass all day. These will be my go-to shoe for any outdoor event (and more)!

I had to return these for two reasons: one, they're too shiny, and two: the back was stretched out. I have no idea why shoe makers put those sticks in sandals with elastics in the back; all they do is stretch them out. This shoe was too long, but in a half size larger, wide enough for my wide feet. Even though it wasn't wide. (Does that make sense? Sure. See all the comments about how this shoe fits. Or doesn't. Too wide, too narrow, take your pick.) Very pretty but too dressy for everyday because of the sheen. I was so sad to send them back.

I really like the style but it fit like a 10N not an 11N. It has to be returned. I will check to see if it is available in the 12N because it is a very pretty shoe.

Great shoe! Very comfortable and it hugs your foot nicely. The natural silk color in my opinion is like a nude gold and is quite shiny. I'm keeping them.

SO CUTE! Even though I ended up not keeping the dress for which I had ordered these shoes, I would have kept them, as they are so cute and the price is great. HOWEVER, I'm returning them as I could tell that nothing was going to improve how the toe opening pressed against my toes. What a shame!

Love the look of silk, adore the color -- and the shoes are a decent fit for my very narrow feet. Alas, on the first wearing, the right shoe caused a blister on the top of the fourth toe, so I'll be buying some moleskin before I go out in these shoes again.

Stylish and comfortable. I bought these for a vacation and they are good for walking if you are not going to walk super far. I have narrow feet and the AA fits well!

Loved the shoe, just a tad short in the toe. I usually wear a size 7N, but lately, it seems as though I need a 7.5N. The back strap was a bit loose on me, but I have very tiny feet/heels. I think I do better with an adjustable strap, as opposed to this elastic version. This is a very pretty shoe, very elegant! I hate to send it back!

Love these shoes, very cute & they fit even on my size 11N feet! I did get 4 blisters first time I wore them, but they were fine after that. Only complaint is that my pinkies try to slip between the straps.

Awesome shoes. The fabric has a subtle shine, but not too much. I have bunions and usually need to break shoes in slowly, but these were very comfortable all day right from the start.

Great shoes! A bit dressier because of the fabric (silk-like)! They were perfect for an afternoon wedding with a sundress. Great with capris too. Very comfortable...perfect height.

I am a size 7 reg and had to return and order a 7 wide. It is perfect and I love the look and comfort of this shoe. I have never needed or worn a wide shoe. Based on previous reviews I was very confused as to which size to order. With Zappos extraordinary service and exchange policy I had the correct size within a day. Thank you Zappos!! My recommendation is to definitely go with a wider width. I did not find it necessary to go up a size.

Very pretty fabric and style. However, the inner materials on this sandal are such a nasty synthetic that I feel very uncomfortable in them. It's not easy to find leather lining, even in shoes with a leather upper. Most linings are synthetic, but this one is really just straight up plastic. That really compromised my ability to love this sandal.

This must be the fourth pair of green Bella-Vita's I've ordered. When one wears out, I order another -- an average of one per year. Sizing is dicey. Usually my size (8) but Wide (I wear a normal width in most shoes) does the trick. Sometimes an 8 is too small -- or too big. But this last time (March 2014) size 8 Wide worked. Love the shoes, love the shiny fabric.

These were awful! The footbed seemed okay, but the fabrication of the toe as well as the ankle strap was so stiff, I would have had cuts in my feet from just walking a few steps. I double checked thinking there was still cardboard stuffed under the toe fabric, that's how bad it was. The shoes are okay style-wise...I know this look is in, but they remind me of old lady shoes if the wedge isn't high enough. I probably would have kept them if they were comfortable, but oh my they are so inflexible. Very surprised at the number of good reviews.

I ordered this style twice but I returned both with a heavy heart. They are fabulous shoes, but that back strap is so long that the shoes fall off when you walk. What a shame that they still have not fixed such a simple issue. I guess they do not care about our comments.

Very stylish red summer espadrille sling, and it was really nice to find a wide fit for the summer - especiallly when my feet swell in the heat. Then came the disappointment. The back part of the sling is too long. I literally walked right out of the shoes! Back they go.

These are lovely - and having a wide option was great, but other reviewers noted the key issue - namely that the heel strap is far too loose.

Beautiful shoe and very comfortable. However, it slips off my heel, a problem I have with most shoes, so I am purchasing a similar style with buckle clasp.

These shoes were as great as I expected. This is the first time I've bought from Zappos, but is certainly not the last. The size was right on, and the shoes fit the catalog description to a "T".

Haven't worn these shoes yet. Bought them for a wedding next May. But they fit, bought 8 1/2, the size I always wear. AND they are comfortable. The color was true to the picture. Can't wait to wear them next summer!

Cute, comfortable - transitional - a bit of a different mix of the silk fabric with the very casual wedge material but it works in my opinion. Great shoe and great value.

These are gorgeous shoes that match my mother-of-the-groom dress perfectly. I am very pleased with them as well as impressed with the service I always get at Zappos. Can't believe I can order them online one day and receive them the next! You rock!

I purchased these shoes to wear with an outfit I had selected for my granddaughter's wedding. I had hoped the color would pick up and complement the colors in my blouse. Not only was the color perfect, the shoes were wonderfully comfortable and easy to walk in. At my age (68) comfortable, stylish shoes are not easy to find.

I have never tried to order shoes on line because I have such a hard time finding shoes to fit in real time. This was the shoe I wanted. I was led to believe from reviews that it ran larger. So I ordered 2 on the small end of my range. When they didn't fit, I was able to get the next large one - overnight - perfect fit; very comfortable and they found hard to find location!

I bought these to go with my Mother of the Bride dress. The silk upper is posh looking with a slight sheen. It's a bit of a juxtaposition with the espadrille style heel but perfect for a tropical destination wedding. They are comfortable, fit perfectly and I know I can dance all evening in them. As noted in previous reviews, the strap at the back tends to slip - very strange since when you put them on they feel like a perfect fit and then you start to walk and the strap travels. A bit of moleskin or soft velcro saves the day. Voila - perfect shoes!

The fabric is very pretty, but uncomfortable. It felt like there was a piece of cardboard stuck in the toe (there isn't, I checked). Kind of looks like silken ace bandages holding the sole onto the foot. Much more encasing of the toe/ball than it looks like in the picture.
