Really like these shoes -- well made with cute little touches. They have a funky style, which makes them stand out from most casual flats. These are perfect with jeans or casual pants. My feet have a wide toe box, so got a Wide width. These fit the front of my foot just perfectly, although they're a tad loose back at my narrower heel. It's not enough to make these uncomfortable, but I mention it here in case that helps people think about size.

I really liked the style, but I had to send these back. They are not very wide. After having surgery, I had a lot of swelling, so I have been buying WW shoes. I couldn't even slide my foot into these; there's no "give" in the elastic band.

HAPPY ... HAPPY ... HAPPY ... that's what my feet are today with my new SoftWalk Tanners. I knew from the moment I put them on they were going to be winners. I love the way they surround your entire foot giving you a good, firm feeling of stability. I was concerned that the elastic strap was going to be a burden, applying too much pressure on my foot (I have a very high instep) and thereby causing swelling, but after having them on for well over 5 hours I can tell that's not going to be an issue. The elastic strap is more for display than purpose. I like the rivots on the side of the shoe and the fact that it almost looks like a boot will making it even more appealing for the quickly approaching winter months. I have a completely flat foot and therefore it's very wide, too, so I'm always on the lookout for attractive WW widths. This one is just perfect. Snug enough to not have to work to keep the shoe on and loose enough to provide breathing room. Wish it came in brown, but I'm good with the black. An olive green would be even more perfect!! If you're looking for a shoe you can wear for long periods of time and don't want to fuss with tying and untying then I would strongly suggest this shoe!!!

This shoe is so cute. I love it, however, I did have to go 1/2 size bigger. It is just the design of the toe box that hits on your toes if you don't go 1/2 size bigger. Other than that it is great.

Trying to find a blue leather shoe to go with blue jeans was difficult. I needed a double wide. This was about the only one I could find that had a closed heel. The shoe is comfortable but does not give the arch support that my Danskos and Sanitas give. My sons call them my elf shoes, so I'm not sure how fashionable they are. But they have a bit of a heel, and I like them. I'll be ordering another pair. The elastic gore is nice; it gives a little wiggle room. I am wondering how well the elastic will hold up.

Very comfortable shoe. I got the dark red in 8WW and they fit perfectly. I can easily wear thick wool socks (for warmth and cushioning in winter) or just an insole (for extra cushioning in spring and fall). They look great with jeans or pants so I'm going to get another pair in blue or black. And as always, Zappos you absolutely rock!

I have a high arch and have trouble finding shoes that fit. I ordered these in an 8 ww. The fit was perfect immediately. No breaking them in. I put them on an they were so comfortable. I have been wearing them every day and love them. They are perfect for our cool Calif. winter weather and look nice for work. I ordered 5 different shoes before I found these. Zappos customer service is beyond reproach. They are the best!

I may never take these off. Have only worn for 2 days, but they are great. I wear a 9N with a high instep and have started having foot problems in the last year (thus having to abandon my high heels, and finding comfortable, supportive shoes in my size has been a challenge. Have been on my feet, including up & down stairs, a lot in the last two days, and for the first time in weeks my joints don't ache.

I like these shoes very much. They fit well with the exception of my one extra-long toe, but I had that shoe stretched, and I think it will be OK. These should be well used as they are quite versatile and attractive.

I love these shoes, and I appreciate the fast service Zappos delivers! These shoes have a built in footbed that is very comfortable. It makes you feel like you are walking on air. I can wear them with my work uniform or out and about.

Great shoe. Bought for Mom. Cute, comfy and the fact that the upper is not leather, but more of a nubuck type of material, it will stretch nicely to fit perfectly. Really stable for walking and standing.

Wow, these are awesome shoes. I have really wide feet and have had surgeries and such. Rare to find a pair that right out of the box fit like a glove. Love them! Now, if they will just get some more in my size.

A lightweight, durable, and cute shoe that will serve as a "walker" for me without looking too clunky. Very unusual to find any shoe in a blue denim color! I normally wear a 7.5, but I am returning these for an 8.

This is a nice shoe, but I got it in wide (D), and it is so wide my foot slips forward, and my toes hit the top. Painful. Wearing thick socks helps. If I had gotten a medium width, it probably would have been okay. But you don't know these things 'til you wear them for a day!

I really liked these shoes and am so sad to return them. The right foot hurt across the top. I kept thinking they would stretch out, but no. Need wides to handle the Paul Bunion on that foot and these just didn't work.

Well, have had really good luck with SoftWalk shoes in the past, but I wasn't impressed with these. I thought they looked cheap. I had doubts about the black elastic strap across the top, but I tried them anyway. And once I got them, I was right, the black elastic strap has absolutely no function, as there is an elastic release piece underneath the strap. I thought the big black strap looked stupid and covered up an otherwise really fairly good looking shoe. It was comfy and true to size though!

Pretty darn comfortable, right out of the box. I work at a library and am on my feet and carrying loads of books quite a bit throughout the day. I'm quite tickled with how good my feet feel after a day of hard work while wearing these shoes. After a month of wearing, two things to note: the blue dye is coming off on my socks. Also, wish the shoes had a bit more traction. For such a substantial-looking shoe, you'd think they'd include some traction with "oomph."

These are comfortable, but with moderate arch support. They look a bit like clogs. They definitely run extra wide if you get the WW width.

I love the shoe! A nice new style for Softwalk; however, it does seem to run a tad short. The toe box is more like a clog. Stil on the fence whether to return or maybe they'll still work. I love Zappos.

I liked this shoe. It was a teeny tad snug on one foot, so I ended up returning it. It was comfy. I have high arch and narrow foot.

These shoes fit and were comfortable, but they just look strange with the black fabric band across the top. It doesn't look that strange in the photo, but I didn't like how it looked when they were on my feet. They look like an orthopedic shoe for someone who can't find anything more "normal"-looking to wear, so I sent them back.
