These shoes are supposed to be 7.5W and they are very narrow. I wore them to work and I sit all day at work and I could not stand the pain. I had to go home and change shoes. I thought fabric would be softer but not on these shoes. Terrible shoes. I threw away the box or else I would send them back. Waste of money!

Brands I'd also recommend: Not this brand. I like Clarks, Rockport and all the better shoes.

I'm so disappointed! The shoes are even cuter in person, but that is not a wide shoe! I ordered the C width & my toes can barely fit in the shoe. But so cute. Wish they were wider! Bye bye, shoes.

I have narrow feet, but these are extremely narrow across the toes. Not flexible and no give in that area. Very cute though!

I absolutely loved these shoes when I saw them. I was able to try them on in a local store, and the 10M was just a tad too narrow, so I was sure the 10W would fit me perfectly. To my disappointment, I could not tell a difference! My poor feet could not handle more than 10 minutes wear in my house, so I had to return them. That was such a shame.

Very pretty shoe! Felt tight across the top at first but stretched a bit and now fit perfectly. Well made and comfortable. Arrived very quickly.

Super cute shoe! Heel is just perfect as I wore them all day to a wedding and had no problems. I usually wear a 7.5-8 but the 7 fit much better.

I *loved* these shoes - the cut is flattering and they are so perfect for summer. However, the heel cup is cut wide, and so I keep "walking out" of the back of them. This is puzzling as, although I know I have a narrowish foot, the front of the shoe fits perfectly, so it is probably cut slightly narrow. I suppose if you have a narrow forefoot and a... wide? heel, this might be the shoe for you. I have to return them... I wish they would stay on. :(

I can't believe I have the same shoe that others are describing. These shoes are so small and tight! I normally do not wear a wide shoe and the wide version of this shoe was much too tight. It's a shame because they are very pretty, but if they don't come wider than this, then they are of no use to me. They are going back.

These shoes are absolutely adorable. The padding on the sole is really nice and seems like it would be a comfortable long wear shoe. However, I wanted these for a wide shoe because my foot is just wide enough were some normal width shoes are a bit too tight on my big toe and pinky. These are in no way wide. They felt like a normal width shoe which was disappointing. But if you don't have a wide foot problem get these!

I love the style of this shoe and I wish I could write a 5 star report but I can't. I bought a half size larger because my feet are a wide. (Normally I'm a size 6.) My normal routine is to stretch them but its hard to stretch this canvas-type material. I broke them in by wearing a pair of thick socks and I thought I'd be good to go. But one day in these, I couldn't last the rest of my work night. The top part of the shoe material runs is too high (or too far past the toes) on the top of the foot so the rubbing created a blister from the friction. It's just too narrow on the top portion of the shoe. I love the style and it's probably because my feet are wide and extra "meaty"? but I can't wear these anymore. It's too painful. Someone with a nice slender foot should have no problem with this. The half size also made it too big even though I used heel cushions. The price was reasonable so I don't feel like it was a total loss.

I was excited about these because they are prettier than a lot of espadrilles. But they hurt in unexpected places. I don't usually have a problem with the width of the box, but these pinch my feet right on my first metatarsal bone. Also, after walking just 2 city blocks, I was already developing blisters on both heels. After one day at work, 4 band-aids were the only things keeping me standing upright. Disappointed.

Oh my. Lovely shoes, but after wearing them to a luncheon (not much walking involved), I not only came home with a blister on each heel, but in PAIN, as they were so tight around the toes. These shoes need to be ordered a size larger than you normally wear, I think.

Brands I'd also recommend: I didn't like this product, but I wore them and now they are mine!

I have very narrow feet and ordered these in a size narrow. I loved the look of the shoes, but when they arrived, I could not keep them on my feet when I walked. My heel lifted completely out of the foot bed each time I took a step. I would have kept this shoe because the style is great for summer, but they just are not narrow enough. I am so sad.

Based on reviews, these shoes should fit me well because I have very skinny and narrow feet! Like many other reviewers, I ordered my regular size (10N) and that was way too long. I could put a finger in between my heel and the edge of the shoe. I reordered them in a 9½N because I cannot imagine going down a full size to a 9N. If they are still too long, I may have to forgo them because I foresee them then being too narrow on the side and at the front of the foot. I have long toes, so they need some breathing room. I am hoping for the best as these are pretty shoes. I love the fabric, color (beige) and wrapped heel. I also ordered similar shoes, Bella Vita Sangria, but I did not like the peep toe at all and it was not quite as attractive as in these shoes.

Returning these shoes. The size was accurate; however, the width was not. I had to "stuff" my foot into the shoe. I ordered a wide and no way was it wide; it felt more like narrow.

These shoes are so cute and comfortable. I haven't worn them out yet, but when I put them on, I just wanted to wear them around the house because they were so comfortable. They are super cute and have a great summer look. They seem to run a little big. I usually get a size 10.5, but these are a 9.5, and they fit perfectly.

I ordered these in a 7½W and an 8 W, the 7½ were way too tight (width) and the 8 was too big in the heel, the back would flip off. I think I got a blister just walking down my hall in the 8s.

These are awesome shoes. They fit great and are super comfortable! I get compliments on them all the time. I have them in hot lips, it's a great color! They seem to fit pretty true to size, I also ordered them in wide and a half size up but in the end went with my normal size.

A very cute shoe, but sadly the fit was too wide in the heel. I could not walk in them without my heel popping out each time I took a step.

I like the shoes, but the top of them rubs my foot and is uncomfortable. Can not wear for a long amount of time. I am hopeful they will break in with time.

I was so hopeful that these would work as I have narrow feet and finding shoes to fit is such a challenge. So many of the other reviews said they very narrow but the pair I got was so wide, I even checked to be sure they sent me the right shoe. Super cute and I think they would be comfortable. But sadly, these will have to go back.

I loved the look of this shoe! I also have a wide foot and was hoping this would fit. I ordered a 9W. The right shoe was fine, just a little tight in the toe box, but the left shoe came off my foot. I don't know if it is inconsistency in the shoe, but sadly, I had to return them. I thought an 8.5 wide might fit, but that was probably pushing it. An 8.5 double wide probably would have been perfect.

These shoes look lovely, both on and off. But other comments about the heel slipping are absolutely true. I have a very typical foot and have never had a shoe slip off the back. But these did. I put in gel curves around the back of the heel to hold them on, which helped. But if you already start with that issue, I'd recommend looking for another pair.

I so wanted to love these shoes! I bought the "Hot Lips" color and they are gorgeous with a slub silk texture. I have a wide foot and bought the 9W size. One shoe fits pretty well, the other is too tight. I can't tell if it's my feet or inconsistency in the two shoes but it's not a problem I normally have. The width, where the fabric crosses horizontally over the toes, is too tight. My right foot doesn't slip as far into the toe box and there is no stretch or give whatsoever in the fabric. I don't dare keep them or hope that they will stretch out so I'm sending them back. I'm not willing to risk the pain of having the fabric cut into my foot across the toe box.
