I am typically a 7½ for heels and 8 for flats. The size 8 in these Cole Haan flats was still too short in the toe box. I also think the shoes look better online than in person. Sorry, these had to go back and my quest for cute basic flats continue.

I bought an 8C, and it was nowhere near a wide width. Was really disappointed because it is a great looking flat. If you need a wide width look elsewhere.

Adorable shoe and great color but a little short in the toe box. This is a reoccurring problem with Cole Haan. It's a shame I have to return these shoes because they are very comfortable and true too size regarding the narrow width. Unfortunately, the 1/2 size up is sold out or these would be an exchange.

These are pretty comfortable, but run small. I normally wear 7.5 in Cole Haan heels and these were too small in that size.

Like some other reviewers, I really wanted to like this shoe. Despite the reviews, I ordered it in the hopes that it would somehow fit me. I ordered my usual size - 7.5 Medium, but it felt really tight both in the toe box as well as at the back of the foot. The style is great and this would have been my go-to flat if the sizing had worked out. I am returning it, but may order a size 8 Wide and see if that fits better.

These shoes are really cute, unfortunately I need to return them because they run a half size large and I wear a 5, so I'd need a 4.5 which I don't think they make.

These are my favorite flats ever! I keep buying more colors and I`m back today for my second pair of the cherry tomato red ones. They do feel snug when they are new and you have to break them in, but after that they fit like a glove and are so comfy! I normally wear heels, and these are the only flats I have found that are cute and stylish enough for me to wear. Love, love, love!

I love these shoes! I am addicted to Cole Haans with Nike Air bottoms; can't wear anything else anymore. I don't know why everyone is saying to order one size up - I'm always a 7-1/2 and the 7-1/2 fits perfectly straight from the box. No rubbing or pinching at the heel or the toe, just blissful comfort. My only complaint with these shoes is I wish they would make other styles in ballet flats - I've been getting the same ones (with slight variations) for years already and it's getting a little boring.

This is a really beautiful shoe. I bought it in the Cherry-tomato for my 18 year old daughter who normally wears 11 but a half size under would have been ideal.

Great shoe! Very comfortable for commuting on foot in the city, and the little gold buckle is very stylish. Cole Haan with Nike Air is the best!

As usual, a great Cole Haan product. Nice combo of patent and regular leather. Simple but not too plain. I love that Cole Haan puts nike air technology into the flats to make them more comfortable. Great for work and comfortable for commuting. I can be a 9.5 or 10 in flats but with Cole Haan I always go with 10.

I'd been looking for a versatile red shoe that I could wear to the office or on the weekends and these are absolutely perfect and the most comfortable, good looking, red, flat I've found. They did feel a teensy bit smaller around the toe but I'm sure they'll stretch out. There are tons of other sites to buy shoes from but I love that Zappos puts their employees first! How refreshing! You're an awesome company Zappos! I truly hope you rub off on others! I'll be purchasing shoes from you again!

I love these. They were my first pair of Cole Haan, and now I see why they are so popular. They really are more comfortable than all my other flats. I am on my feet a lot and these feel great even after a long day.

Love these shoes. They do run a little snug in the toe area. However mine stretched out after a few days and became very comfortable. I could have probably worn a half size larger than normal. I own two different colors and they fit slightlty different.

These are the most comfortable ballet flats I own! The leather is very nice and the Nike air technology makes the soles a little more sturdier and more comfortable than other ballet flats. I ordered a full size larger than I normally wear in Cole Haan.

Love these shoes. This is my second pair of Cole Haan ballet flats. They are pricey but so comfy. I have narrow feet, either 2A or 4A, and have a particularly narrow heel and these stay on great. I usually take a 10.5 but ordered an 11 as I find Cole Haan shoes run a bit small. My only complaint is the arch support - there is pretty much none.

Most comfortable flats I own. All of my Tory's are now collecting dust! My heels were irritated the first day wearing them but by the 2nd day, they felt like heaven! I am normally a size 7 with wide feet, I chose a 7.5 as noted by other reviewers and they fit perfectly! The black and nude makes any outfit look put together! My next one will have to be the all the nude ones.

Love at first sight! Elegant and lovely, this is a wonderful casual dress shoe. The elastic around the entire top of the shoe allows for a comfy fit without much rubbing or irritation. Very happy!

These flats fit me true to size and I think they're adorable on. The only thing about these shoes is that they did take a bit longer than normal to get them broken in but once they were it was worth it. The Nike sole is so comfortable and I love wearing these. I would buy them again.

Love this shoe! It is very comfy and very soft. I sometimes have an issue with the back heel not fitting right on other brands, but this shoe fits perfectly, it doesn't use uncomfortable elastic at the back, and is still perfectly comfortable and no blisters!

I originally bought these in black and loved them so much I bought a tan pair when they went on sale. They're so comfortable and versatile, not to mention cute; they're my new go-to work shoes.

These shoes are great. They have much more substantial soles than lots of ballet flats, but they do not look clunky. I did have a bit of trouble finding the right size (they run a little small, I think), but after a bit of ordering and returning I have gotten things straightened out. My only other comment is to say that I am not crazy about having elastic around the shoe opening. My experience has been that it is more comfortable to have more structured shoes (these are quite soft between the structured heel and the structured toe) without the elasticized opening, but I can certainly live with it in these shoes.

It took 3 tries to get the right size but worth it. I do have a narrow foot so these shoes work for me and I love them. Casual enough to wear with jeans yet dressy enough to wear with a suit to work. And very comfortable but not the best walking shoe as there is not arch support. With insoles, they could be the perfect shoe!

These are great! Very comfortable for all day, even with my aging runner's wrecked feet. They stay on, don't pinch,and are almost as comfortable as the other Cole Haan flats I bought last summer which are no longer available.

I absolutely love Cole Haan shoes! These shoes are so comfortable and cute! They feel like sneakers, but look a whole lot cuter! I have walked miles through airports and beyond in these shoes. I own four pair of these, and always get compliments. Even my friends buy them now. They are worth twice the price!
