I had to return these, normally I love Clarks, but the front part cut into my foot very badly, my feet are slightly wide, but this was just painful. Pretty style, also color is more coral (more orange( than pink.

I bought this shoe in coral and it matched my new outfit perfectly. I was a bit miffed this shoe was not as comfortable as ones I buy directly from a store. Why? No idea. Since I didn't stand a great deal, the shoe was ok. I am going to try a Dr. Schols insert, hoping for better comfort.

Cute as they are, the shoes are not up to Clarks standards - stretch out and have no arch support. Wouldn't buy another pair.

After reading previous reviews, I ordered a 1/2 size smaller (I am usually a 7 1/2W, so I ordered a 7W). Apparently this shoe is made a bit large. I need a wide width due to bunion. These fit perfectly and comfortably. Clarks makes a very good product which lasts for years. The red is more a deep red than a true, bright red, but very pretty and will go with lots of things I own. Would recommend this shoe.

Really cute shoe but tight in front part, could just be me. I wear them when I know I won't have to be on my feet too long - like the color and style. Zappos service is excellent.

I love these shoes! Let me begin by stating that I have nearly flat arches and I was worried that these flats would not work for me. The support was very nice. These were comfortable right out of the box! One other thing I like about these is that the toe box isn't too narrow. Many ballet type flats squish my toes together - these let my little piggies be comfy and happy!

These are very cute (I have them in coral) for spring/summer. However, they do run large by about 1/2 size and do not have any arch support to speak of. They're fine for wearing to work in an office, but aren't for long walks for ladies with high arches.

Very nice, neat shoes for wearing to work and they make my wide feet look a little narrower. The perforations make them cool for summer, too. As others have mentioned, the attachments on both sides of the heel cup were scratchy when I first put on the shoes. On closer examination there were stiff little stubs of thread sticking out as well as sharp corners of folded leather or plastic. I got out my nail scissors and trimmed these bits away. This is a detail that Clark should have taken care of -- I do not expect to have to do the finishing work on a pair of shoes at this price and with this brand name. However, it only took a couple of minutes, it solved the problem, and the shoes are otherwise comfortable and pretty. I don't love the bow (that's why I gave them only 4 stars for style) which is a little bit too prim and prissy looking for my style. However, it's not terrible, just not my favorite. I might get another pair in a different color if these hold up well.

This is a really cute shoe, but I found it singularly uncomfortable. I love Clarks and have had great luck with them with few exceptions. This show is leather... except for the trim around the throat (the open part of the shoe). In this area it appears to be an odd synthetic/rubber type of material. It stretches everywhere but in this area and that causes an odd point of pressure right over the base join on the small toe of one foot. Sadly I wore them before I realized it would be an ongoing issue, so I can't return them, but I will be giving them away - hopefully their next owner will have better luck.

I love these shoes for summer. They are surprisingly breathable, and the solid toe makes them look a bit smarter. I walk to work and it gets hot in Virginia, so professional-looking shoes that keep my feet from sweating in the summer are a great find. The Bone is a very versatile color. I've had great success with Clarks for nice looking, walkable shoes.

Too short and narrow, but cute and comfortable. Returned for the next size up. In some Clarks I can take a 10 B, usually need 10-10.5W but these 10W were short and narrow.

I've tried so many flats and this one is perfect. The toes don't curl up and I'm not walking out of the back. Think I'll get them in another color too! Comfy!

So cute. So comfy. So big! So bummed. I ALWAYS wear a 10N and this 10N was too long and too wide. Sadly the style is unavailable in a 9.5N. My search continues. Thank goodness for Zappos. How many shoes can a gal buy and return before she gets banned?

Very nice, true red color. Looks good with skinny jeans and spring skirts. Have had trouble finding a nice not too fancy red flat. This shoe fits that description perfectly. Very comfortable, I've already worn them enough to have my money's worth.

(from my daughter) Love! So hard to get a narrow size 12 that doesn't make my feet look like a boat...they're cute, versatile to dress up or down, and just what I've been looking for.

Cute shoe with a skirt, capris or straight leg jeans. Light and airy. The pewter color is very versatile. True to size. Only complaint is where the seam ends on the heel side of the shoe - it's not finished evenly so rubs on the skin a bit. Otherwise a fun spring/summer shoe!

My feet pronate (ankles turn). I also have flat feet and a pinched nerve. This makes finding cute shoes very difficult. I bought this shoe and immediately knew that I hit the jack-pot! I wore the first pair (in tan) all day at work. They are cute with a skirt, dress, pants or jeans. I came home from work and immediately bought the same shoe in dark brown and black. I consider myself in a restraining mood because I didn't buy the shoe in coral...I will probably buy it tomorrow -- the shoe is so comfortable! This is from someone who usually is in pain all day unless I am in ugly shoes. How fun to have a cute shoe and be pain free.

Very cute shoe. I got the wide and they are true to width. I only wish I had sized down about 1/2 a size then they would be perfect. Not enough of an issue to exchange. I would definitely recommend.
