I bought three pairs of these shoes. I think they are great, but depending on the color/material you are getting a slightly different experience. I have the black and the natural, and I believe these both have the man-made lining. Even if it's not, they are lined, and the shoes are more stiff and can rub my pinky toes wrong. Lotion or foot liners help with this and I don't tend to wear them to walk a lot (I wear them to work and don't have to move around all that much). However the coral pair are heavenly. They are not lined and the whole shoe is soft and buttery. I believe the blue leather, which are still available, are the same. Those shoes are super comfortable and I can do plenty of walking. In any color, I think these flats are cute and stylish and happily devoid of any teeny tiny ridiculous bows. Although the pairs with the tan or brown lining are not quite as comfortable, I still wear them and like them (so that is why I am putting 4 stars down for comfort, trying to blend the two kinds).

These are cute enough, but I didn't realize what "man-made lining" would mean. Within an hour of wearing these shoes (too late to return, alas), my feet were sweating so profusely I had to take them off. Caution: When you see that phrase, think of wrapping your feet in plastic.

These are cute and nicely made, but I found them to run just a little short, and narrow/too pointed for a wider foot. I ordered my usual 7.5, and my toes hit the end. The shoes aren't super narrow, but also not quite enough width for my B-to-C-width feet. Great shoe otherwise (though no real arch support or padding, as usual for ballet flats).

Cute shoes! comfortable, especially around the bunion on my right foot. I am constantly order shoes and sending back sometimes the same day. I am so glad Zappos is so tolerant and cooperative, as I constantly try to find comfortable shoes. these worked because they are wider, and I added a Dr. Scholl's little rubber arch support. Whatever it takes to wear a cute shoe!

I normally love NW shoes but these are a big disappointment. The heel wore off of both shoes the first time a wore them to work. The leather came right off and looked awful. And they were very uncomfortable. Buy something else.

I've been looking for years, own several pairs, and still have to say, these are the PERFECT ballerina flat. They make my 9 1/2 wide feet look tiny and proportional. Yay! I also love that they are lined in a nude color rather than black, as a lot of ballerina flats rub off and make your toes black and discolor your pedicure. Not these! Right out of the box, these felt soft and buttery and fit like a glove. No breaking in necessary! The piping is subtle and adds just the right amount of detail, and the front of the shoe doesn't look at all bubbly like it does in the pictures (a concern I had before purchasing). This shoe shows more skin than shoe on the top of the foot, so it's very flattering. I compared these to the Jessica Simpson Leve and these won hands-down. Classic shape will go with everything.

I love, love, LOVE these. I wish they made this leopard floral print in a heel, too, because I'd snatch that right up! Very comfortable, I was worried that they might be stiff, but they are ready to wear right out the door. I have narrow feet so they are a bit room around the edges, but that makes them very comfy for me. The toe box is slightly curved, so if you have a very wide foot in the toe area, that might be uncomfortable, for me it's okay. Just will take some getting used to since I don't have any other shoes this shape. If I had the budget, Id buy 5 more of the exact same shoe just to hoard as I wear each pair out!

At last I have found the perfect little black ballet flat. Flats are always a problem for me. I am not a fan of toe cleavage. Wasn't a problem in these. As always with Nine West, I ordered 1/2 size smaller. These are very comfortable, nice flat. I wish they came in brighter colors, I would buy them all.

Loved the first pair I ordered in black so decided to get a second in the blue suede. I have had 12 foot surgeries so finding closed shoes that are actually comfortable is a real challenge. This are the first ballet flats I found that fit in all the right places. Great shoes.

These shoes are heavenly! The black leather is so soft, and the style is so cute! Perfect for work or a casual night out. I wear a size 9.5 and they fit perfectly. And Bonus: no breaking in time! I'm definitely going to order these shoes in another color!

I'm so glad that I found these cute, black flats. I'm a size 5 with my left foot slightly larger than my right so I naturally have a great deal of difficulty finding flats that don't hurt me. Finally, after months of searching, I found these shoes and they were extremely comfortable and, most importantly, did not give me any blisters! I'm thankful that I found these shoes and highly recommend them for those looking for a comfortable fit! Not to mention that they look great!

A great little pair of flats. Not as "cushy" as Me Too, but so much more comfy than most! I have a wider foot but ordered my normal 7.5 and they are great. The toe is not so round as to look stubby and they make my feet look a little sleeker than they actually are. I wouldn't spend an entire day walking in them as they aren't really built for that, but they will be perfect with black skinny pants, a la Audrey Hepburn for a less active occasion.

Cute shoe but is kinda wide. I normally do not wear a wide but there is some extra room, nothing horrible. They are comfortable and pretty stylish. Very good work shoe.

Love these flats! I'm on my second pair because I wore out my first pair. Unlike some flats that are not comfortable at all, these are actually comfy from the first time you slip them on.

These shoes are super cute and really comfortable. The color is a bit more muted than in the pic - more of a mustard yellow, but still beautiful. Keepers!

I LOVE these shoes! I have a narrow size 10.5 foot and ordered a 10.5 in this shoe. I cannot believe hoe soft and comfy these are. They feel like they could be too big but do not fall off of my feet. I do wonder if they will stretch in the future though. Overall, so happy to find something cute that actually fits me!

I love the style, somewhat pointy but yet rounded, making them more modern shoe than ballet flats. They are very comfortable, I have worn all day, with no problems. I ordered my usual size and they were fine.

Love! Buttery soft and comfy right out of the box. Usually a flat has some area that needs to be broken in. Not these! The green is a beautiful almost true Kelly Green. I'm Obsessed.

Super cute and look great with leggings or tights. I'm between a tad wider than average so shoes are hit and miss in the box and these are a bit tight but will stretch so will keep them.

I just bought these in a second color because they are the most comfortable, cutest flats I have ever owned. The only flats I've never had to break it. Just slip them on and they feel buttery soft and perfect. LOVE LOVE LOVE and will continue to buy in more colors. True to size, in my experience.

I have to agree with the reviewer who said no break-in required, fits like a glove. These are amazing. I immediately ordered another pair in a different color, and am tempted to order a second pair in this muted pink. (It goes so well with pale skin that has blue undertones.) They will require additional arch support if you're planning to walk all day in them, but they are fine for a quick trip. Zappos service is always the bee's knees!

After sending about 20 pairs of shoes back, and going to shoe stores in seven countries including my own, I finally found a pair of flats that fit! I wear a 4½M or W and no one makes shoes for tiny feet anymore! These run small, thank goodness. They feel great and are elegant but casual. I am so tired of wearing kids' shoes or buying 5's and having to stuff them with something to make them fit! I am ordering more of these. They go with everything.

These are nice shoes. They hit a little lower on my toes than I realized, but they still look good (and don't expose toe cleavage). I would certainly buy these again - I wear a 7.5 and I was able to wear the pair I bought immediately with no "break in" time.

I have been searching high and low for the right black flat for my sisters wedding. These just arrived (and just in time with one week to go...thank you for amazing service as always Zappos). They fit. They do not hurt (I have mild bunions making certain shoes a nightmare). The lining does not make my feet sweat like other reviews have stated. The only thing I would love, is if the lining was leather and not man made, just because the experience would be so much nicer. These shoes however, are where it's at ladies. They do not break the budget and they go with everything. They also do not kill my 7 1/2 - need a slightly wider - but still on the narrow side type of foot. If this is you, they will work beautifully and feel like a dream.

These are great shoes. They are very comfortable, light and flexible. They required no "break-in" period. I started wearing them the day they arrived. I have worn them with jeans, skirts, pants and dresses...out to the grocery store and out to dinner and a concert. They can go anywhere. They are very feminine and flattering. I needed to order a size down, however. I usually wear a 7 1/2 and these were perfect in a size 7. I ordered the coral/pink and have found them fun to wear with lots of clothes to spice an outfit up. I also ordered another pair in black for times the pink just doesn't work. These are my wear-everywhere shoes.
