These shoes are just about the best I've ever bought! I have very hard to fit feet. They're wide, flat, and the bunions I inherited from my grandma don't help either! A foot doctor once told me, "These feet are not meant for shoes." I usually wear size 8, but 8.5 is perfect. This pair is so comfortable and they look terrific, too!

I really wanted to keep these shoes. They're cute, the fabric's great, and they seem to be well made. However, they run small and no amount of trying to convince myself that they'd stretch let me keep them.

To put it in perspective, I have about 50ish pairs of shoes in my closet. Only two of those pairs of shoes are a size 8 (a pair of rain boots and this pair of Blowfish flats). All of my other pairs are size 7 or 7.5. Obviously, like a lot of the other reviewers here, I suggest going up about a half size in these shoes. And PS. although these shoes are M width, they fit my wide feet nicely.

I had been looking for some colorful flats for awhile (all I had was the usual black and gray). When I received these, at first I was a bit hesitant, b/c they have no traction! So when I put them on to walk on our wood floor, my feet would slightly twist. But I wore them to work, and out and about, and they've been fine. I took the advice of previous reviews and got a half size bigger then what I usually wear. And added a heel insert for extra cushion.

Comfortable, but the heels could use a bit more cushioning. Also, the grey leather seems to fit slightly tighter than the light brown cloth. I am returning my grey leather size 7 for a 7.5 but keeping the brown cloth 7's.

I love these shoes, so cute and soft but have to return them. Too small. Ordered them 1/2 size up based on reviews. Still too small.

I do not know why everyone says these fit small. I listened to those reviews, and got half a size bigger than normal. I should have just stuck with my normal size. They are cute!

These are comfy shoes in a nice fabric! It looks like really narrow corduroy. The purple is brighter than it appears in pictures. There's virtually no support of any kind in these shoes, but they're very comfortable. I took the advice of other reviewers and ordered .5 sizes up, and was very happy about that. Zappos shipped these in a day, even though I got the free shipping! So fun. This is why I will keep ordering from them!

This shoe is super-cute but offered no foot protection. Every time I stepped on even a tiny pebble, it was painful. It also offers virtually no support. It is great as long as I really don't need function--just appearance.

I love my Blowfish, particularly my beautiful flat grey boots. But the other reviewer is absolutely spot on about this style being too small for the size, and as already take a size 10, I am out of luck and they are going back. If you do have a smaller foot, just order up.

These are cute shoes, and very true to size if not a little wide to me. I waver between a 6.5 and a 7 depending on the shoe, and based on some other reviews, I decided to order these in the 7. I don't believe I'm going to send them back, but I will be getting some heel pads or inserts or something as they are definitely big. My feet aren't so wide as to require W width shoes, but I do consider them wide, and these shoes are wide on my feet as well as being too big overall. As far as this type of flat goes, they have more support and cushion than most, and feel like they'll be comfortable to wear for longish periods of time. Again, very cute, but I'd personally recommend sticking to your normal size!

While these are cute and definitely an awesome pair of flats, the quality is somewhat poor. I had these shoes for about four months and had to throw them away as the shoe came completely apart from the sole and any minor scuffs turned into tears/holes quickly. The shoes are amazingly cute, do not get me wrong, but they did not last long at all. I would have replaced them but figured it is not worth it given my last experience.

These shoes are great for business casual attire and for casual. The only thing is the inner soles wear out quick. But I wear them every day so, expect that if you plan to wear it daily.

I really like these shoes, but it took a day or two for me to warm up to them. Out of the box, they look wider than they appear online, if that makes sense. I didn't realize when I bought them that "Blowfish" is embroidered on the side -- on the side facing out, at that. I really wish you could upload pictures of these! They run big - not as big as the other pair of Blowfish flats I purchased, but still a solid half size larger than normal I would say.

These flats are even cuter in person. The color is exactly as shown online and they are super comfy with the suede-ish lining, my only complaint is that they rub the back of your heel for the first couple wears but I'm sure that will go away as it has with my other Blowfish flats that I love. I typically wear a size 8 or 8.5 and went with an 8.5 in these and they are perfect so if you are between two sizes go with the bigger one. Zappos shipping and service was top notch as usual!

Love Blowfish flats. I have very wide feet so I order a full size up and they conform perfectly. No support actually makes your feet stronger, After wearing these for a couple of years, I can now go all day in them without my feet wearing out. Bonus: they're adorable. And not being leather they look great forever.

Cute shoes, great to wear to the office and very comfy. They seem to run wide (I have medium feet). Drawbacks- I didn't realize that the brand name is stitched into the outside of the shoe So wide that they look a little silly on my feet sometimes The lining is PURPLE and the contrast is pretty obvious if you're wearing with black tights. Still, overall a great shoe, I'd recommend but just know that it's wide and although perfect for a casual office, not super formal flats due to the bright lining and stitching on the side.

These aren't bad flats. I got them in purple, and it's a gorgeous color. My only issue was that I went against my instinct and bought the 7 instead of the 6.5 as I fall between the 2 depending on the shoe. These are way too big. I kept them thinking they'd be ok, but in 10 months have probably only worn them once or twice because they're just too big. I have a somewhat wide foot (not enough to need W's, but definitely not narrow) and these would be too wide even if they weren't too big. All in all, cute shoe, reasonably comfy, but the fit was totally off. If you're on the fence, definitely size down.

They felt comfortable and true to size, but I returned these shoes because the color was ugly. I got the cognac austin but think I will return for the darker austin shade.

These shoes were definitely what I expected. I wear a size nine and they fit me like I size eight. If you decide to get this pair, I recommend that you purchase them a size bigger.
