A nice basic ballet flat, especially fun in the metallic gold. These are very durable shoes, standing up to city living, and with an added insole, which fits because the WW really is extra wide, their arch support improves drastically, making them great walk around shoes. They work well with skirts, dresses, and capri pants, and even shorts, because they're dressy without being fancy.

from Adirondacks!

Ordered this shoe when I needed a skimmer to wear with skinny jeans and couldn't be happier. I had looked for a skimmer that could be ordered in a "wide" as I have a very high instep and the aftermath of a broken big toe on the left foot. Found this shoe and decided to give it a try. I totally love the shoe; it's comfy, cute and looks great with skinny jeans. I would definitely order this shoe again.

These shoes are beyond cute, the color is perfect; a nice burnished gold and I can see where they'd be very comfortable if they fit. I found that they're a little short in length and if I had a choice I'd exchange them for a half a size larger but sadly there is no 11.5. One more thing I wear a wide...always...no exception but I took the advice of another reviewer and ordered an extra wide, I'm glad that I did.

BIG fan! Second pair of this style flat (different color). They are the most comfortable flat I've had, stay securely on my foot, room in toe box area (front looks more like ballet slipper) marvelous cushioning too (for a FLAT - with some arch support which is appreciated as I have a solid arch) and bottom that isn't slippy. Heads up there is stitching around the top of shoe, I like it, but zoom in if you aren't sure. Thumbs way up. (size 7.5 B width)

These are adorable! These are great. I am size 7½, which fit perfectly. The shoes have a bit of cushioning and a slight arch support which I appreciate because I have highish arches, many flats are just flat. I wear them, but these shoes have nice additional features. They look great, too. Remember, rated five stars for comfort because these definitely are most comfortable flats that I have ever had.

Love this shoe! I have a huge challenge finding comfortable shoes due to my bunions, and these are as comfortable as any I've had and are stylish as well. Color may fool you, as it's not as silver as it appears online but rather, a cross between silver and gold. Still not a bad color for me.

Really comfy flats. The leather is soft and stretches nicely. The soles are not super think, but contain noticeable cushioning. I'm thinking about ordering in other colors...

Loved these shoes, but had to return for smaller size. My foot had been measured as a 9.5W at the neighborhood mall, so that's what I ordered. All shoes are different, though. I am returning them for a regular size 9 - because they were too long & too wide. Anyway, they were a really cute & comfy little flat. Looking forward to the new ones fitting better!

These are just the cutest shoes ever! They seem to run a little short but I'm afraid the next size up might be too big so I'm hoping they will form more to my feet as I wear them. I love they way the look and they will go with every color and every casual clothing style like pants, crops, jeans, skirts, casual dresses, etc. Great color!

If you need the most comfortable, neutral flat around...this is it. I have a bunion on one foot and this shoe was still comfortable and didn't bind in that area of my foot. I need arch support and this shoe provides moderate support. I'm sure I'll be able to wear these to do lots of errands and walking around.

This shoe is not as shiny as it seems in the picture. Yes, it's a bit glossy, but not overly so. It also has a bit of arch support - at least more than most flats in this style. However, just as the previous reviews say, this shoe rubs on the top of the heel. (Of course, I had to find out for myself.) I think I'll try wearing them around the house with mole skin or cushy bandages on my heels and see how that goes, because I love everything else about them.

I wear a double wide shoe and it is very difficult to find comfortable shoes that are stylish. These are both. Love them, and bought them in two colors.

I purchased this shoe for my 12 year old daughter who has very wide and very thick feet. We bought a size 10 EE. Most stores do not stock shoes large enough for her toes to even go into the shoe. Last year we purchased Birkenstocks for her and she has even outgrown those - could not find any to fit her this year. It is very rare to find a shoe that fits her so we resort to Zappos where we can search for shoes by entering in size and width. We are thrilled to say that finally we have found a shoe that fits perfectly! And, it's cute! and, it's leather! The cost was a lot to spend on a shoe for a 12 year old whose feet may still grow, but when it's the ONLY shoe you can find to fit her you will not just buy it but rejoice. And we are rejoicing. Such relief! Thank you Zappos for stocking more than just the averages sizes so that everyone can wear shoes! These Hush Puppies are a very soft leather with a very cushy insole and a nice solid outsole. They appear to be well made and look like they will last and wear well.

I ordered the "Gold Metallic Leather" but received "Platinum Leather" instead. To me the color is much darker and closer to silver than the photo. I called customer service and they gave me an immediate refund. Apparently the "Gold Metallic Leather" was a mislabeling. Aside from the color, I really wanted to love these shoes. I am technically a 7EEEEE with a narrow heel and these were pretty comfortable width-wise (the "spatula" toe shape helps a lot too), with better cushioning than most flats. The only drawback was that the leather lining at the heel was really rigid and angled towards the heel, so it kept rubbing against my skin there. Bummed to send it back.

These shoes are really cute and comfortable. My only complaint is that the back of the heel comes in from the back of the shoe that could create blisters until they are worn in.

With very wide feet, these fit great. Unfortunately the sizing seems to run a half size larger and the backs dig into the heels.

Nice wide toe box, comfortable, I really really would like to keep it, but back edge of the shoe where the elastic is digs way too much into my heels and it doesn't feel like it'll soften enough. Sadly, will be returning.

Not your typical ballet flat, these are real shoes with a little support. The toe box is flattering on my size feet. I ordered a 9 and a 9.5 and went with the 9.5 and use skimmer socks. I find myself planning outfits around them. Knocked a star because they are a bit wide, and I like really high arches, these are only moderate... still tons better than nothing.

I would have liked these but the back come up too high and poked my Achilles. I think this is something about my feet, as it happens fairly often.

The Kriya are comfortable and nice looking shoes. They are a tiny bit casual for work - maybe it depends on your workplace. I had thought the pink stitching would be weird but it is actually a very nice look, it adds a bit of interest but is so subtle it almost is not noticeable. The shape of the shoe, a slightly baggy oval rather than fitted through the arch, is what makes it seem so casual. The elastic was way too tight at the heel for the first couple of days but, because of other reviews, I stuck with them and now the elastic is fitted but comfortable.

I agree with another reviewer regarding the back of the shoe rubbing the back of my heel. I only experienced this on one foot, but it definitely rubbed the back of my heel until it bled. However, once they are broken in (and my heel heals), they are the perfect combination of cute and comfort. I got the shinny gold color, and it goes with everything. I walk 2 miles to and from work every day, and don't want to have to wear sneakers. These are perfect. I still feel stylish if I head out after work in these and they are incredibly supportive and comfortable. Just beware of those heels!

My wife purchased this shoe for casual wear. She says it is comfortable overall. However, the way the shoe is angled at the toe caused crowding of her toes. The look and the style is great, but would work better if the next half or full size up was available. She had to return the shoes.

These flats are a great way to schnazz up a dull outfit. The foil finish is flashy, but the hue keeps the overall look subdued. I have a wide forefoot, and the wide version of this shoe fits great without being too loose in the heel. No squishing of the toes. The shoe lining is textured for your foot's pleasure, and the arch support works for my lower arches. The one feature I don't like about this shoe that's been mentioned by others is the high back on the heel. I've had to wear bandages on my heel every time I wear them until they get more broken in.

Love the shoe, comfortable and great with jeans. Pretty big problem though is that the finish wears off easily, considerably shortening their life and usefulness.

This shoe is nice looking, but the edge around the heel digs into Achilles tendon at a 90 degree angle. Try the Hush Puppies Chaste Ballet flat instead, and order a full size larger than your normal size.
