Zappos is amazing, but Nike really failed on these shoes. They really killed my toes, and have completely fallen apart after about a month. Cute style though.

I thought since these were Nike flats would have more support, but they do not have any support at all, just a cushion sole. So, I am not sure why this product was rated with arch support. The toe is very narrow. If you have a wider foot, you might want to look into another brand. The back heel's material seemed already stretched out when I bought it. So, I can see these shoes slipping off the back of my heel after they are broken in.

Adds a cute casual look to your outfit. Love the fit, saw other comments about the toes being too narrow, but I didn’t have that problem at all.

I love these shoes! They're great with jeans or shorts, and very comfortable. They look fine with or without socks. They do stretch a little once they are more worn in, but I bought them in my usual size and the shoes are still working great.

I adore these cute shoes. I only wear Nike athletic shoes and so I decided to give their casual shoes a go. I wear these shoes almost every day and I get a compliment or two a day about how cute they are. They seem to be a tiny bit narrow by the toes. But overall they are super cute shoes!

I love them already! I wanted these instead of Sperry's. They are narrow in the toe area because of a elastic band under the tongue but they stretched out quickly. I got these in my regular size 9 instead of a 9.5 after reading reviews about them becoming floppy.

Comfy and super cute, but unfortunately too wide for my narrow feet (especially in the heel). I wish Nike would actually make shoes for people with narrow fit.

Looked cute and casual online. When I got them, the tongue of it sticks up too much and the placement of the bow tie is too far from the tip of the shoe, so it looks like there's too much open space. REALLY comfortable, though! I really wish I could have kept them, but they just weren't flattering.

These shoes are so cute and I was sad when I had to return them. They are oddly shaped. I ordered a half size bigger, hoping that the space around the toes would get better but it didn't. The toe box is narrow and the rest of the shoe was wide.

These are cute but they hurt my toes. I bought them for walking and ended up not being able to wear them for more than a day. The toe box is not wide enough I think, and otherwise they are kind of wide.

I ordered this pair of shoes in the Khaki. I ordered a half size smaller than I usually do in the Nike brand and really I should have just ordered my regular Nike size. The shoes are adorable, although the size I ordered was way too short and very snug across the top of my feet, and I have an average width foot. I'm a little skeptical if I should exchange for the correct size.

I wear these all the time! They slip on fast and don't fall off my heel when walking like a lot of ballet flat style shoes do. They have an elastic band under the tongue that keep them on securely. I have walked miles in these shoes without any problems! I don't like wearing full on tennis shoes with shorts in the summer, but need to be able to have a comfortable shoe that I can walk around in all day and these were a great solution.

Super cute, and the soles are a lot more padded than I expected! They are a bit wide for me, and would slip off the back of my heel, but that elastic band near the toe helps hold my feet in. :)

I ordered the khaki and unfortunately they did not fit my foot right. I have narrow feet so they slipped off the back. I even tried a size smaller but that still didn't work. Very disappointed, really liked the style.

These shoes are dreadfully uncomfortable for Nike's. I bought them to walk to work in, and realized pretty quickly that they have no support and very little cushioning. Sad for Nike to produce such an item!
