Love the look; the shiny buckle adds a bit of patent leather shine to the look. The toe box and heel are tight. I am debating whether or not to return or trade. If the leather stretches at all it would be a perfect fit.

Beautiful shoes. But for sure runs a half to a full size short. Hated to return. Ordered a 10. Would have ordered in a 10 1/2 if it came in that size. Would try an 11, but my foot is very narrow and afraid 11 would be too big overall.

The toe box on this shoe is hard and low on the top of the foot = very painful. Maybe the sizing is off because it seemed very short in my regular size. I returned it because of that but I do have to say that the shoe had a very comfortably padded insole, with cushioning in all the right places.

Really wanted to love these shoes...but must return them instead. :( Bought a pair about 5 yrs ago (which are still in pretty good shape), these seem to be the update. However, they're not as comfortable; and if I wear barefoot, my toenail squeaks against the leather! Also, one shoe's buckle makes a noise, the other doesn't--awkward! Guess I'll just give the old ones a good polish!

The leopard was very cute (just a little bit of twinkle) but the buckle took me aback. Some reviewers said it was noisy, which I think would be true. What I noticed, though, was it was large and was a very shiny brownish bronze tone. I was not really sure how I felt about that. If the shoe fit, I would have probably kept it. However, it was small. I am usually 9.5 and wished I had ordered the 10.

I ordered these in my normal size but they're just a little too short. They're very cute so reordering a half size larger, hope that doesn't make them too wide, we will see. Thank you Zappos for free fast shipping and free returns!

Gorgeous shoe. Great cushion. I am going to Europe and needed a shoe I could walk miles with. This shoe is it. Great support and cushion. Bronze shine and texture is so pretty!

Fits my narrow heel really well. The toe box is very shallow but breaks right in. (I used to be a 7AA but bought these in a 7 1/2AA. Perfect.) I do protect my pedicure with a bandaid because my big toe rubs on the top, but not painfully. Super comfy overall. Bought the black first and liked them so much I bought the copper too. Besides comfort, the shoes are really very good looking, and can easily go from casual to dressy.

Good: super comfortable, even on my wide-ish feet; cute buckles. Not-so-good: the buckles are jointed and clink together faintly when you walk. I took about ten steps in them and it drove me bananas. They're going back! Also, my shoe size varies between a 8.5-9. I ordered a 9 in these, and they are a hair too big. Should have stayed with the 8.5.

Sadly I am sending back this shoe due to the bunion on my right foot that is rubbed by the shoe when wearing. Needs to be a little higher over the joint of the great toe. Otherwise these are really cute and comfortable with the one exception.

I loved almost everything about this shoe...except the buckle. It wasn't taut against the shoe so every time I stepped it made a clank noise. I plan on returning these shoes for that reason alone as I know it will drive me nuts to hear the clanking.

This is not really a fashion forward shoe, but it is classy and it's extraordinarily comfortable - if you need a basic ballet flat, this is a good choice. I like the buckle and the construction and arch support is excellent - so much more support and comfort than most ballerinas. I have plantar fasciitis and I can hardly stand to wear most ballerina flats anymore, but these are great!

Well, the 9 still cuts across the top of my foot and the heel is too loose, so returning them. Still a beautiful shoe, maybe for someone with a shallow/narrow foot?

It's such a beautiful shoe that I'm returning for a half size larger! The leather is substantial, the hardware is modern and industrial (so hard to find something that's not old-lady gold), and the padded insole looks like it will be great once my toes aren't squished in the toe box. :-) My only concern is that the edge seems a bit stiff, so we'll soon see if it cuts into the top of my foot. I'll review again as soon as the larger size arrives, and knowing Zappos, that'll be just a few days!
