Cool looking shoe - a fun-colored summer espadrille with some sheen to make them a tad fancier. Like all sling-backs, the backs due slip a lot. A bit narrow too, so these are not for walking far.

The red satin is just too shiny. I should have paid more attention to other reviewers. It's a flashy/festive upper on a casual lower, and the combination is weird. Otherwise, cute style, but I can't comment on comfort because I didn't wear them very long.

I had high hopes for these (received in black, as well as a pair of the Bella-Vita Sharon in Natural). Attractive, comfortable, multi-purpose (look just as well with a sundress as with capri pants or shorts) and not terribly expensive. My big issue with both pairs of these Bella-Vita espadrilles is that the seams or stitching is very hard and uncomfortable. They feel very stiff. Perhaps they will loosen up with wear, but I was not willing to take the chance. I also ordered SoftSpots Lebeau and am keeping those even though they are slightly more matronly looking and more expensive. At age 40 I am just not willing to sacrifice comfort.

Beautiful shoe but much too narrow. I have an average width and never have trouble getting fitted. Unfortunately, I had to return these.

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.

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.

I have a love/hate relationship with these shoes. When I receive them and they fit, I love them. When they arrive and I immediately have to return them because they are either too large or too small, I hate them. I have two pair I'm still wearing and I wish they'd never age. I've had another pair that grew too old and they're gone. So if you're patient, go for it. Order a few pair in different sizes so you'll keep at least one. Fortunately Zappos takes returns and doesn't charge for shipping. But the sizing is too inconsistent for me at present. I wish it weren't because I love the shoe.

Shoe runs long. Ordered 10W and width was great, but shoe was at least half size too big. Loved the sheen of the fabric and foot bed was comfortable.

I understand now what a couple reviewers said about the material being 'shiny,' which would be fine if this were a dress shoe. However, the shiny red doesn't go well with the casual nature of the heel. It seemed that the peep toe might rub a lot. I didn't wear them much because they were 1/2 a size or so too big but just a few times around the house and I could feel the peep toe hole rubbing already.

I bought the black in size 8 WW and white in size 8½W. They both seem to be about the same size and were too big on me. I normally wear a size 8½W. I think the correct size for me would be 8W. I plan on returning these and not getting another pair. The design looks cute in the pictures. However, when looking at it in person, the front looks very wide and does not look cute at all. It makes me look like I have wide feet. Yes, I have wide feet, but I do not want it to look like I have wide feet. Perhaps it is because I got the W and WW sizes, though. Maybe the front of the narrower sizes look better.

I love the color and the shoes are cute. However, the fabric is a little cheap looking and it rubs in some areas. I don't think I could walk far in them.

I ordered these in black silk. It is pretty fabric, but I did not like the peep toe at all: too wide. I immediately felt the top of the peep toe bothering my toes. I also did not like how the shoe looked from the front. Also, slingbacks are usually a problem for me because of my super skinny and narrow feet, but since I struck gold with the slingbacks I bought for my wedding, I did not immediately write these off (though my wedding sandals had a buckle on the strap, so at least the slingback was adjustable). What I did like besides the fabric was the cushioning. It appeared that they would be comfortable, but I wore them for only a few minutes on the carpet.

I ususally love Bella Vita shoes but am disappointed in the quality of these the rope coveing on the heel is sticking out after wearing them only 3 times. They are too expensive to be of shoddy construction.

I loved these when I first got them. I ordered the Thai silk yellow; gorgeous! Felt great on my feet, fit perfectly. So why did I return them? They do not stay on your feet. The strap does not adjust so you cannot make them smaller. Too bad. I wanted to keep them, but alas, it was not to be.

I have to return these. The style was very attractive and the height was perfect, but the fit was off. I typically wear a 7.5 or 8 and I ordered an 8. The strap was much too loose so I couldn't wear them. I usually find the wide width perfect but this width still fight tight (I have a bunion). If I could figure out the right size and a good fit with the strap, I would try the extra wide.

I loved the shorter wedge heels and these sandals were so cute! Unfortunately, a broken ankle (too narrow) and discomfort at the toe edge kept me from keeping these.

I knew when I bought them that they were shiny. I would have preferred matte. But the shoes are still cute. The toe box was extremely uncomfortable. I couldn't have worn them for more than 5 minutes, so I returned them.

The fuchsia color was perfect - not bright more purple in it. The size was right but with just walking around in the house I could tell these shoes would be painful to walk around in all day. Something about the toe cut out were just rubbing and digging in to my skin. Had to return. I'm looking for a cute comfortable shoe.

Beautiful shoe and comfortable but the strap is too big. I'm between a 6.5 and a 7 normally. I got a 6.5 and it's too big. Definitely order a full size smaller.

These shoes look really cute on and come in fun colors. I was sold. When I tried them on, though, I slipped all over my kitchen floor. I was hoping to wear these to a casual wedding, but was afraid to wear them dancing. Maybe when the soles get scuffed they give more traction, but I wasn't going to take the chance.

The shoes are very attractive but hurt. The way the material is gathered by the big toe, it is very painful when worn.

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.

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.

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.
