I didn't "break in" these shoes before going to western France on a whirlwind tour of western France. Wore these shoes for 14 straight days. Not once did they produce a blister or any other discomfort. So comfortable.

The insole sticks to your foot and slides out when you remove the shoe. The 7 was too small, and the 8 was too big.

The blue color is darker and more neutral than it looks in the photos. The white denim name is misleading. It's actually a much nicer color than I expected. Like other Celia-style shoes, it's very flat with a somewhat thin sole, and not very aggressive arch support. But I was looking for a minimalist shoe, and this one is just right.

Great shoe but the Toe bed too shallow, the top of my toe touches the top. Have worn size 39 Rieker shoes for years, currently have size 39 boots. What is happening, with other brands I have the same problem. I weigh 111, do not have a fat big toe.

Great shoes. I needed shoes for Europe and lots of walking. I have owned several pairs of Reikers and these are no exception. Great shoes with good support that I can wear all day long.

After only a few hours of use, I wore these shoes on a day-long architectural walking tour. My back complained but my feet felt fine. I'm an 8N and ordered the 39s. The fit is just about perfect. The upper edges are finished & don't chafe. The soles grip nicely and the rounded toes make for an easy stride. Love the denim color & finish -- surprisingly versatile.

I have MS and have many problems finding shoes that I can walk in, because of foot drop and balance issues. These are the best shoes I have bought in along time. I have no trouble walking in them and they are so light and comfortable. It feels like I am barefoot! The white denim color is so cute and it is actually a very stylish shoe. Love these! Ordering the red ones soon.

I wanted to love these shoes. I waited until Zappos carried it in red. The color is beautiful and they are super cute. However, the strap is not adjustable, and with my high instep was much too tight. Sadly, they must go back.

This is my third pair of Riekers and I love them! This one runs narrower than the other styles I have but the leather is very soft and I know they will stretch a bit. The style and color really works with just about everything. I'm marking below that it feels narrower than marked just for those who may have a wide foot.

This pair of Riekers (Celia 66) ran 1/2 to 1 whole size smaller than my previous pair (the Rieker Celia 88 - which I loved minus my pinky toe coming out of the side 'hole'- it ran true to size). I don't know why there are differences between sizes in the same brand but there are. The metallic blue color was pretty, and metallic-ness was subtle, not too loud. The strap across the top fit my foot well (even in the too short length), not tight at all. The insole area felt pretty soft but I still feel like both pair I tried could have used a bit more padding especially in front. Sadly I had to return these due to the length. There isn't much arch support either. I'm going to try Wolky shoes next and perhaps another style of Pikolinos in the future. Thanks Zappos for your excellent shoe service!

I tried this Rieker shoe at a shoe store, and it felt very narrow at the 5th metatarsal area (by the little toe). I'm a solid B or Medium width there, so this shoe must run narrow. I'm usually a 38, which fit except for the little toe area, so I tried a 39. My 5th metatarsal area was still too squished in a 39, while the rest of the shoe was too big. Aside from the narrowness, the shoe felt comfortable and looks well-made. The strap didn't hurt my high instep (that's often a problem due to my high arches). The strap can stretch a bit due to elastic connector, but it doesn't detach from shoe, so that could be a problem if you have difficulty squeezing your foot in under a strap. I think you can pull the insole out (it seemed lightly glued in) if you need to fit in orthotics, but it might be a tight fit due to the strap not being adjustable. Worth a try if you have narrow feet.

This shoe is really cute but it has little cushioning and is not for walking in Europe (which is why I bought them)! I thought this Rieker would be a heavily cushioned walking shoe but this shoe has a regular foam insole and I could feel every bump and crack on the pavement. Granted, I have "old" feet but I wouldn't want to wear these walking on cobblestone streets in France or for long days in the mall. I got them in the White Denim color and it was beautiful and would match anything. The rubber soles squeak on wood floors. I spent 2 hours on the internet researching how to make the squeak go away. I tried sanding the sole lightly but that did nothing. I tried applying hair conditioner to the sole and wiping it off. Amazingly, this decreased the squeak by half but how long would the effect last? I decided to return the shoes. If you want to insert your own insole to provide more cushioning, order up a half size or more. I wear a size 7 and I got the 38 and it was too tight to use my insole or to wear a thin sock with the Rieker insole.

I have 2 pairs of Rieker sandals that I love. This shoe, however, is too short. It looks like it would be comfortable, but it is both short and too wide. The sandal works beautifully because it has elastic on the sides. This one however, won't work for my narrow foot.

I am addicted to little red shoes and these are absolutely adorable. However, I had to send them back because the toe box is too narrow and squeezes the joints in the ball of my foot. I also did not feel any arch support and absolutely no cushion anywhere. I own a bakery, am on my feet all day, and could not wear these shoes for more than one minute.

Be warned -- this shoe is narrow and if you can, order two different sizes to see which one works best for you. There's not as much arch support as one might expect, but it's fairly cushy or you could remove to insert an insole. On the plus side, the shoe is really stylish in person (cool European look) and trust me, cool-looking, supportive flat shoes that don't look orthopedic are hard to find. The tread is nice and the red color is fabulous. I'm really disappointed that these didn't work for me, even trying a size up. They're just too narrow, and I don't even have a wide foot! Maybe if I tried to have them stretched, I don't know...but I ended up going with Josef Seibel Caspians instead.

These are super cute shoes and have a nice soft and supportive foot bed however, they run small. I am a true size 9 and the 40 was tight on me. I am going to keep my fingers crossed and give the 41 a try because I really like the shoe...great quality.

I am so very disappointed when I was trying to order the Celia 97 and they must have been discontinued. I have an orthodic prosthesis that exactly fits a Celia 97. I have had every color (many times two or three of the same color) that I could get for many years and always felt they gave me the fit I needed plus they were so cute. That is something you do not find in other shoes that would accommodate my brace. The main reason they fit so well is the elastic back strap. I could get the elastic strap lengthened by ¾" and take out the inner liner and they fit like a glove. Now, what do I do? It really is a problem for me!

Brands I'd also recommend: I have no recommendations - - I just want more Celia 97 shoes!! ANY color size 41
