I really wanted this shoe to fit - it's basic and dressy enough for work and has nice cushioning with good traction. However, even the wide width felt very narrow - my little toe was being squeezed under my other toes.

These shoes are not only cute and stylish they are so incredibly comfortable right out of the box. I think I may buy another pair just to have on hand for when these wear out. Great with slacks or jeans.

I got these shoes for work and they are comfortable. I wore them right out of the box and my feet weren't even sore at the end of the day. They were a little tight, but have stretched as I've worn them.

I had a very good experience with shopping at Zappos online. The second day delivery was unbelievable. The shoes were beautiful. I have big bunions and I needed enough room for my feet to feel comfortable. these shoes are very soft and have enough suppot. They can be dressy or just worn with jeans. I love them and will recommend them.

These shoes look nice, but they are too wide for me. I usually wear a narrow, but I guess this was one of those times when I needed a slender, and they don't come in that width. A totally flat shoe like this will fall off my feet if it's not very narrow.

I really like this shoe. The only slight drawback is it does slide a little on my heel. Not unusual because I have a very narrow foot. I solved that by wearing socks. :-)

A great everyday work shoe. Once you break them in, they're wonderful to wear all the time. I recommend getting the Dr. Scholl's adhesives for the back of the heel, as they tend to rub.

These flats are very comfortable, inexpensive and look stylish. Because they're flats, they don't offer a lot of support.

I really like the unusual bronzeen color! I ordered 11W, which is the size I normally wear. It's a snug fit; not tight, just no extra room. If they stretch just a little bit wider across the widest part of my right foot (where my big toe joint is), they should be fine for occasional wear.

I have always loved Zappos and all the brands that they carry that will fit my narrow feet. If I have any problems, I just send them back (only had to do that 2 times).

Not as cute as I thought, fit well, just a bit too bland for me. Comfy shoe & size accurate, bronze color very nice! I could see where these would go with many outfits.

Very cute shoe overall. I think they run about a half size smaller. Kinda hurt the tops of feet above my toes.

Very cute, and comfortable. If I hadn't ordered a wide, they would not have fit. LOVE the color! Don't breathe very well though.

I'm on my feet for 8 - 14 hours a day, so support not bad. Cute shoe for casual and business. Drawback? I'd like a manmade material that didn't break down after the third wear. Material on front of shoe breaks down easily. I'm not rough on my shoes / clothing - I have pants I can still wear that are classic and have lasted me 10 years! But it is becoming increasingly more difficult finding shoes actually worth their price for the material that they are made from. Look for something with a flat finish - will look newer. (Can't even use a polish with these to save the tips.)

so cute...but after one day in the office, they have to sadly go back. My toes felt crushed as I was walking out of the heel, quite an odd fit for me which is odd as I usually love LifeStrides.

This shoes looks great with pants (I don't wear skirts, so can't comment on that). The only thing is that I have to wear hose or knee-high hose socks or it will rip up the back of my heel.

Did not realize these were synthetic, and not real leather. They were very cute and comfortable for the 20 minutes I had them on, walking on carpet, but I'm sending them back.

When I walk in these the sides bow out and they look ridiculous. Because of this they flop around. They've been returned.

Look nice, but the shoe cuts across the joint of the toes and actually caused my feet to swell. Same exact size as other shoes from the same company, but this one was cut a little low. Also, very flat, which might have contributed to the swelling.

I've never had a pair of shoes chew my feet up so badly. I had the usual back of the heel sores at first, but once I broke that in, the outer sides of these started blistering the sides of my feet -- and they were not too narrow, so I really don't know why they wouldn't work. Even with bandaids on, it felt like these shoes were rubbing against raw skin. I also had some issues with the tops of my toes. It was so bad, I actually got fed up enough to throw these away while at work and put on a random pair of shoes I happened to have at my desk. They looked cute, and they honestly did not feel too big or too small, but I have never had so many blisters and weird pinching from any other pair of shoes.

Style was just okay, but the width was completely off. I double checked to make sure I hadn't been sent a wide or medium instead of the narrow I had ordered. They were both marked narrow. The right shoe was slightly wider than the left, but both were too wide for a narrow. The back heel slipped, making the shoe feel more like flip flops. But even so, the seam around the top of the foot was really stiff. I'm not sure they would have worked even if the width had not been an issue. These shoes are being returned and I'll look for another shoe altogether.

Style was just okay, but the width was completely off. I ordered a narrow size. The right shoe was slightly wider than the left and the right, although not as wide, bowed in a way that suggested it would be as stretched out as the right foot with just a little bit of wear. The seam around the shoe was also stiff, not making for a comfortable fit. These shoes are being returned.

I have always worn 8 1/2 in LifeStride and never varied. I ordered these in red. I really like the shoe but he heels are so wide that I walk right out of the shoe. Sadly, they are going back.

Cute shoes, but the fronts of my shoes were scratched/scuffed before the third wear. Will not be ordering faux leather again. Wasted more money on shoes that didn't last as long as $15 shoes at PayLess. Disappointed.
