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 bought these shoes specifically for a cruise, so I haven't worn them for a really long day yet, but I have walked around in them to break them in and love them. I got the neutral color, so they'll go with a lot of things. I also like the mid-heel height.

This shoe is just lovely. I have a hard to fit foot and wear a 9 1/2 ww. This is a little snug but I know that it will stretch out a bit. I am thinking about the green also. It looks very nice. I do wish that I had slim little feet but Oh well at least I can find some lovely shoes at Zappos.

This is a cute shoe and I was hopeful that the narrow would work for me so I ordered both the 9 and the 9 1/2. Lengthwise the 9 1/2 worked better but both sizes were too wide. I have found that Bella-Vita narrows just aren't very narrow. I tried adding inserts but it would have taken more than one and that just isn't a good look.

Having large feet (10) is a problem and I often have a hard time finding cute shoes. I ordered these in an 11 and the shoes are amazing, the kelly green is to die for! Don't know why I chose this color but it just spoke to me. Fit, comfort, style are all excellent... in fact I will probably be ordering another pair in a few days. Enjoy.

These shoes are lovely, and appear to be well-made. My customary size, 7 1/2 Medium, was out of stock; so I tried the 8 M. It seems narrow. Some peep-toes "cut" my toes, but this is comfortable.

The wide was originally a little tight across the top of my foot and across the toes but after wearing them approximately four times, the toe area has now loosened up and has become quite comfortable. The color is a beautiful, bright shade of green.

I ordered my size & usual width. Too too tight. So I ordered a half size up, extra wide, and it was good width wise, but too big. So I'm returning these, too, and ordered my size, but extra wide. I trust these will work. I pray.

I cannot speak for the comfort of the shoe. Size and width smaller than my other 6 2E shoes (this is my measured size). The shoe itself is lovely in the pictures and even more so in person.

For the price, I expect more. All man-made materials and made in China--the shoes seem cheaply put together. Tight in the width the shoes don't breathe--too much plastic for summer shoes.

Why do I ever doubt the always reliable Zappos reviews? Yes, the back strap on this shoe is too long and falls off. I wish I could order a 6.5, but the smallest it comes in is 7. I ordered a double wide and the width was good. I was surprised, and at first disappointed, to see that this fabric was almost a shiny silk - very dressy, and very incongruous for an espadrille. Shouldn't a casual shoe like this be linen or cotton? But once I put it on my foot, it looked really nice and since once it's on your foot you don't see the rope-like wedge, that incongruity disappears. Still, Bella-Vita, when you redesign this shoe to correct the length of the back strap, maybe you could dress down the fabric, or change the heel to faux wood.

Just got the green and the fuchsia today. Love the colors. I wear a 6.5 wide and these fit true to size. Thank Zappos for the wide selections that are just not in stores. The back strap definitely has give but I find that to be more comfortable than digging into the back of my ankle. Where the ribbon crosses on the top is just snug enough to hold the shoe firmly in place without being uncomfortable. I look forward to wearing them everywhere as the weather gets nicer and will definitely be looking at more bella-vita shoes.

Aaahhh, they feel great. I have Sasquatch feet and they actually look cute in these shoes. They do run a little wide, for me that's a plus. Heel is a really good height after the 4" platforms from this winter. The yellow silk looks a little dressier than the black, won't be wearing a lighter color with casual clothes, although the black looks fine.

Since I a wear a size 12 I am always looking for shoes that look nice and do not accentuate the size of my feet. These shoes are comfortable and really pretty. I receive lots of compliments when I wear them.

These sandals are true to size. They look great with my linen pants or capris. The color and texture are even cuter in person. Zappos is my first choice when shoe shopping!

These shoes can be elegant or casual, depending what you pair them with. They are comfortable and a good height, tall enough for a little oomph, while low enough that you can walk easily. I wore them an entire weekend in South Beach, Miami, walking up and down, and they were perfect.

These shoes have amazing fit! Super comfy and perfect for a tropical wedding in Costa Rica -- I cannot wait to show these off. Will update this review should I have any issues wearing the shoes for the wedding, but so far wearing them around the house has been great.

These are a fabulous green and the fabric is really great as a coordinate for summer skirts and dresses. They also look good with jeans and are super comfortable for every day wear.

After reading other reviews, I ordered this a half size larger and a WW and I'm glad I did since they just fit, so order larger than normal with this one. A nice casual summer shoe and I would have kept it but the color didn't match my outfit.
