These shoes are even cuter in person! When I first tried them on, they felt stiff and uncomfortable. But I decided to keep them anyway, hoping they just needed to be broken in. I am so glad I did! After a week or two or wearing them, they are very comfortable, and I love the style. They are versatile enough that I have worn them to business meetings, to walk the dog, and to play with my daughter on the playground. I am very happy with these!

When I put these on the look and feel are great, except too short so I'm returning for a larger size -- have the same problem in tennis shoes -- hopefully they will still fit snug as I don't want them to slip so I'm trying only 1/2 size up. Really nice feel in the insole.

Best shoe that never needed breaking in! I have strange feet and usually have a difficult time breaking in shoes, these were a god send! No sores and super compfy! Thanks Teva!

Again, Zappos does not fail to ship so fast that you can hardly believe it. Fabulous service! Absolutely love the styling of this ballerina, cute with a long dress or slacks...they are adorable for a big trip I'm taking to India in the Fall. Can dress up or down. Ordered 7-1/2, my size in a closed shoe and they are flopping off my heels. Afraid to go down to a 7 so have put in a heel gel and will try a very thin insert. The foot bed is surprisingly not all that comfortable anyway. Better too big since my feel will probably swell in the heat of travel.

This is a very good looking shoe, casual but formal enought to wear every day to work. It does not conform exactly to my feet shape since my first toe is the longest one and this shoe seems to be made for second-third about the same size. The bottom is cushiony, flexible and light, and that's a good thing.

Loved the shoe, but just did not fit my right foot comfortably due to a bunion. Loved the fact Teva is so involved in conservation!

I was looking for shoes that would be comfortable and supportive but still looked nice. (I'm a wedding photographer and am on my feet for long days!) I've worn these for a few days now and they're great except the heel part comes up a bit high and rubs my ankle bone and back of my heel. I'm hoping that wearing them more will break them in but for now I have to wear blister Band aids on the parts that rub.

I love these! They are so comfortable. A little larger than the size but I'll just put a low foot pad in the front and they will be perfect. I wear a lot of knitted streachy pants (for medical reasons) and these look great with them.

These are great! They are rugged, but still definitely feminine; fit is a little on the large side, so order a half size smaller for a better fit.

These are extremely comfortable. I needed a pair of casual shoes that would accommodate new orthopedics. These work beautifully. True to size, and I've received several compliments on them.

I agree with the other reviewers. These shoes run short, so order up, maybe half a size. Other than that, I returned them because I thought they looked clunky and dowdy. Too bad, because they looked good in the picture, but they sure did not look good on my feet.

These are cute shoes. They would have worked well, but they were too short and hurt. I have to return them and try something else.

I really loved these shoes! However, they were a little long and slipped off my heel when I started walking. I'm a true 7.5 so not sure what happened with the fit. I feel like a 7 would be too short. Oh well...still love Zappos!

I ordered both a 10 and a 10.5 in this shoe, as I tend to land somewhere in the middle. I was swimming in the size 10s. Not only were they long enough, but they were also too wide. Very comfortable, but not cute enough.

These shoes fit strangely. I am always an 8½ in shoes. Sneakers can run small, but I still ordered my normal size. These shoes were too short, so I ordered 9 but they were falling off my feet. They are wide and something about the shape pushed my foot forward in the shoe, so my toes still hit the front even with the larger size. The heel was really wide too. It is too bad, because they seemed like nice hybrid shoes.

Was not crazy about this shoe. I ordered it a half size larger, which fit ok length wise but the sides gapped a bit.

Love these shoes. They've been comfortable since the day I took them out of the he box. I take them on vacation with me because I can walk miles in them but they look dressier than sneakers if we are going out for dinner or something.

Not bad for what it is, but not really my style. Fit was great, but very very flat. Almost felt like a negative heel, but that might be because I am used to a 2-3" heel.

I ordered these shoes for a trip to Europe, knowing I will be doing a lot of walking. I've been wearing them before the trip and I think they are going to be perfect. Very comfortable, true to size, and while they aren't totally fashionable, they are cute.
