These shoes are so pretty and feminine! They have the trendy bootie look without being too clunky. I've worn them bare-legged with a dress and cannot wait to wear them with tights this fall. They'd also be super cute with skinny or cuffed jeans so you can definitely dress them up or down. The heel height is reasonable and with the small platform, the shoe is very comfortable. The lining could be a bit better but I did not have problems with rubbing when I wore them barefoot. I am typically a 7.5-8, the 8 was huge and the 7.5 fit well so definitely size down. I am a professional woman in my 30s.

I am not a bootie kind of person (flipper size feet). So, I hesitated to send for these. But booties are all the rage right now and fall is coming. I finally decided to try the taupe and was pleasantly surprised. They do look great. The heel height is modest and comfortable. Even my husband liked them! Not that that matters much to a Shoeaholic. Now, if my girlfriends like them, that matters.

The Bianca is lovely, but the heel heigth pushed my foot very far forward and I found it became uncomfortable as my second toe tried to slide out the the peep toe opening. This put even more pressure on the big toe and the third toe. Peep toes and heel combinations just don't work for me - but might be fine for someone else.

I wear 12w sometimes 12ww or 13 depending on the shoe. I ordered these in a 12w. The heel is a little *too* wide while the toe area is a little on the snug side. I think with inserts, I can get them to be a lot better. Style is adorable. I will be wearing these for my wedding next month. I actually found they are a little long - my big toe and middle toe are barealy visible through the peep part but there is a good 1.5" of empty shoe beyond that. I think that happens with a lot of peep-toe styles, though. The main reason I ordered this pair is because I HATE toe cleavage and you know, where you put on a close-toed pump and you can still see the sides of your toes where it meets your foot. Ugh I hate it. So this half-boot-half-pump style works GREAT for me!

It's pretty and comfortable.The bow is a bit large, so not sure how that looks on a smaller foot. Which is not a problem I have...I wear a 12W or WW and the 12WW felt good, no pinching, with enough room for a thin insert. I will be exchanging them though - the red is more mauve and not as saturated as I wanted. Black should be fine.

Adore this design and shoe is beautiful, but the back of the shoe will not stay on my foot. The fit of the heel is so loose that the shoemaker I took it to for help says there's no way he could help.

Cute concept, but not very comfortable. I thought the high sides might help with the fit since I have narrow feet and my heels tend to slip out of shoes, but these were still a little too roomy and put too much pressure on the balls of my feet. I would definitely want some inserts if I kept them, but they weren't right for me. The quality is nice, and I love the detail on the soles. The soles are not too slick without being casual/grippy.

I ordered the wide (as my feet are wideish) and I found this to be absolutely huge - no way I could get it to stay on. I'd recommend the regular width, even for wide feet, but be warned: This shoe is a little frumpy and heavy looking in person.

Cute but after reading reviews, I ordered a half size smaller but my heal still slips. I have to put those none-slip little pads in the shoe to make it fit. The length of the shoe is correct, so a smaller size would not work. Keeping them despite the flaw. Very stylish shoe.

Super cute, but way too big in my usual 6.5 wide. I walked out of them because the heel slipped. They looked like a half size or maybe a full size too long as well. I ordered the grey color. It is not a true grey. It is a warmer tone, perhaps taupe. I would have reordered in a smaller size, but I really need a true grey. Very well made with a reasonable heel. I think it would be very comfortable in the right size. Alas, they are going back.

I love the way these shoes look. Unfortunately I have duck feet. Wide in the front and narrow at the heel. The 7-1/2 (which is my size) wide was one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. The heel however slopped off and flopped around. I tried the smaller size of 7 but the heel still came off. I really wished the heel had fit.

This shoe is super cute, but unfortunately it has a big flaw! The back of my foot kept slipping out when I would walk, so I ordered one size smaller thinking this would solve the problem. But when I tried that pair on, the same thing happened again! My foot slipped right out of the back of the shoe when I would walk! So I sent them back very disappointed. I wouldn't bother purchasing these shoes because you will just have to send them back!

I love the style but the shoe is wide in the heel (I have a narrow foot and width narrow usually works but not with this shoe) and a half size too big.

This is a very cute shoe. First I ordered 8WW and it was too big. Then I ordered 7.5ww and the width was fine but the heel width was huge. Had to return.

I followed the reviews of this shoe and ordered a half size down, but they ended up being too small and I'll l need to exchange them for my usual size. Very pretty shoe. The grey/brown is more grey than the picture shows.
