Cute flat but it felt like it ran about a half size small. I ordered an 8.5, which is my normal size but needed an 9 in these.

I really, really wanted to like this style. I've been looking all over for a cute, plain black flat in a wide width. I tried both the black nappa and black patent Lyona with no luck. The toe box comes up too high on the foot, making this shoe look super conservative and mature; almost like something a novice nun would wear, if that makes any sense. Bright spots, the leather upper was of quality, the fit was comfortable, and Zappos service continues to rock.

Fits perfectly a half size larger than normal. Just like putting on a slipper. Wear all day comfortably, even on bunions.

Cute and comfortable right out the box, needs more arch support, though, to get 5 stars.

Beautiful, comfortable flats. Soft and classy looking. I did need to get a half size bigger than my usual, as others have noted.

I absolutely love that these shoes come in a wide! They are super cute, and finally a ballet flat wide enough for my foot. I have already received many compliments on them, after only two wearings!

These shoes are perfect! They run true to size and are so comfortable - they have become my everyday work shoe. They're great for work or even after work when you want to stay comfortable but still look a little classed up.

I found these to be at least one size small. Fortunately, I'd sized up from a 10 to an 11 after reading the reviews. The wide is not wide; it's like a regular width. Almost too narrow. I normally take a 10R and I got an 11W and it's a bit tight in the toe box (just the left one for some reason). I'm hoping the leather stretches and becomes more comfortable. I like how they fit, very cute. It also has more arch support than your average flat and is good quality.

I bought the grey suede flats and I think they are fantastic! I wore them for an entire day, 8 hours, without socks/tights. The front pinched my toe a bit after awhile, but I have this problem with other shoes, so must be my toe, not the shoe. I like the extra support these flats have as many flats are too flat for my foot and offer nothing to support. I was excited to purchase a pair of shoes that worked out so well. I recommend!

These are a good pair of everyday flats. The leather is pretty soft, and because of this, the shoes can sort of wrinkle at stress points. But they are comfortable and get the job done, and are holding up well despite my wearing them daily.

I ordered my usual 8.5 and a 9 in the black suede since I'm looking for simple black flats, but funnily the 8.5 was too small and the 9 was too big. I could wear the 9s with thin socks, but even then slightly walked out of them. No way I could wear them in bare feet/stockings. Very cute, good toe coverage and style, some arch support (not great), generally comfortable, but just didn't fit my feet!

I was disappointed in the look of these flats. The toe box comes up a bit too far on the foot, they almost look like Isotoner slippers rather than sleek little ballet flats. Otherwise, it's a great shoe - good quality and fits well. Just didn't love the style.

I bought these felt really good but they squeek when I walked in them. I really don't know what to do now. Loved the shoes but now after one day out I can't wear them.

These shoes are cute, but are too flat and unsupportable to stand in all day. I am a teacher-turned-medical student, and I need shoes with support. They also got totally stretched out after a few months of occasional wear (maybe 3 months?). I bought a pair from Walmart for cheap that lasted just as long. I would not recommend these shoes.

The key word here is comfdort. If that is your biggest concern then you will be happy with these shoes. They are simple and the leather is nice. I got a 9.5 and usually wear a 9.

The reviews said these run half a size larger but that is way too big. I wear an 8 and that would have fit fine. These are great everyday shoes in looks/design and they are really comfortable.

Comfortable, but I had to go up a full size from the 8.5 I usually wear. The pewter color is very shiny, and has a green/purple iridescence which is pretty, but may affect what you want to wear them with.

Finally found a basic black flat that works for me. I was a size 8 in other designers and went for and 8.5 for this one and just enough room, I would like it if they stretched out a little more. The toe come down farther than most other styles but work for me and my long toes!

I bought this shoe and should have listened to the reviews saying it ran small, it definitely does! I also did not like the toe, it's kind of hard to tell in the photos but it is slightly square and points up a bit. Not really a big deal but I prefer a more rounded look.

This shoe is cute, but the fit is terrible. The top edge hits right on the outer toe joint making it painful to even step into. Sending it back and will try something else.
