I bought these shoes in natural, and they are really beautiful. They feel comfortable when worn for a short time. I can't say how they would feel if they were worn all day, because I simply can't wear any heels for more than a few hours at a time, but as far as dressy heels go, these are relatively comfortable. I like the straps at the top because they keep my foot from sliding out of the shoe without visually chopping off my foot like a strap around the ankle would. I am very happy with these shoes, and thrilled with Zappos unbelievably fast shipping!

One of the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever put on my feet, next to the Sangria from Bella Vita. I love Bella Vita shoes...the Wren and the Athena are fantastically comfy. These are like torture devices for WW feet. The silk has no lee-way,the straps, are too low and hit at awkward places. It is a pretty shoe, as long as you do not have to wear it. The colors are vibrant. Perhaps if they added a hit of spandex to the silk, or a hidden elastic. Just a thought.

This shoe looks so good on and is incredibly comfortabe. I would have ordered another pair in the different colors if Zappos would have had them. It is a must for the summer, looks great with pants as well as summer dresses.

These shoes are pretty and comfortable. I bought the navy ones and they go well with skirts and pants. Got several compliments at work.

I have stupid wide feet, so I got these in WW, and they still pinch a little on the sides of my feet. But they're silk, and I've always said more shoes should be made of silk. They give, and they're comfy, and they don't chafe. I can (and do) wear them all day at work. Massive compliments too.

I didn't realize this shoe would have a sheen to the canvas. It felt very narrow for a 10 Wide. I had to return them. Wish the heel was a solid wedge instead of the cut out at the arch.

I have extra wide feet and I am so surprised how well this shoe fits! It is amazing to have an extra wide shoe that both fits and looks amazing. One of my favorite summer sandals.

I love these shoes. The first time I wore them I got all kinds of compliments. Dealing with Zappos has been a great experience. I have a large narrow foot, so finding shoes isn't easy. This place rocks!

Love these shoes! I have a very wide foot and thick ankles. They accentuate the positive and diminish the negative. Very comfortable! I've walked miles in them with no problems. I like them so much I ordered 2 extra pairs.

I can't understand why people don't think these shoes are comfortable. I've worn them to walk around in all day on several occasions and found them to be quite comfortable. I also think the fit is just fine. I got them in black and have gotten many sompliments on them. Super cute shoe with the espadrille look but not so cliched as the wedge espadrilles that are eveywhere this season.

Just...no. These look so cheap and are poorly put together. The elastic does nothing to keep your foot secure in the shoe which results in lots of slipping, rubbing and blisters. The satin material just looks tacky, I wish they had gone with a simple cotton. I got these in a 9.5 (my usual size), but I would almost recommend going a half size smaller. Perhaps then your feet would fit more snug and prevent all the slippage.
