These shoes are really cute and comfortable for long days on my feet as a teacher. The reason I gave 4 stars is that the leather lining that sits on top of the cushioned footbed is quite thin. If you wear these barefoot and your feet sweat, that lining detaches and starts to stick to my feet, pull back when I take my shoes off, and wrinkle in hot weather. So now that lining has some permanent creases.

I bought these flats for a medical conference knowing I would be doing a lot of walking, so flats would be a great choice, right? Wrong. I walked about 2 blocks outside of my hotel before my heels had blisters. I bought the 'second skin' band aids to heal my blisters but the backs of these shoes rubbed through the bandaid. By the end of the day I was miserable, my feet were hurting and my feet were bleeding. Very cute shoe but don't plan on walking in these!

So comfortable... required absolutely no breaking in, although they were a little squeaky on day 1 :) I love the armor metallic color... goes with almost anything! I hope the color holds up a little bit better than the Air Bacara I got in a similar color... I have several pairs of those and the black and the patent beige held up great but the pewter color rubbed off pretty quickly. These look good so far!

Incredibly cute shoes! They run small. I wear 7 W and these pinch my little toes a bit. Still comfortable and fun to wear.

I love these shoes! I bought them when I was about 4 months pregnant and they have been my go-to shoe ever since (now 9 months preg). I did buy them a 1/2 size larger than I normally wear due to availability in the store, but I am glad that I did as I felt that the shoe ran a little small (however, my feet could be bigger/swollen due to the pregnancy). Anyway, these are so much more comfortable than all of my other shoes and the color is very versatile (I bought the gray - Poloma) so I wear them at least 4/7 days a week. I have worn them hard for the past 5 months and they still look great, though I do have the same issue as a previous reviewer who noted that the lining does pull up a bit if you wear them without socks. Not a big deal, in my opinion, but if that bothers you be sure to wear little footie socks.

Loved these, they go with everything. I have a wide foot but these make my feet look small. they are flexible in size, these fit, but I could probably have worn a smaller size which was not available. they look like ballerina flats but they have a real anti skid sole with a cushioned heel. You can walk everywhere in comfort.

I love these! They didn't need any breaking in, and are so comfortable to wear. I did get a little bit of rub on one foot- but my feet are slightly different size. I can wear these all day at my standing desk, or walking around town.

You just can't beat the comfort of a Cole Haan Nike Air! I wore these all day the first day I got them with no issues. I have high arches and a wide foot and these were the perfect fit. I have other Cole Airs in a size 7. I ordered the same in these. Great color and fun style for a flat! And you can't beat the Zappos price!

My new cinnabar pair is perfect. I walk a lot, wear them barefoot and have no problem with fit and comfort. They look expensive and stylish. I was very happy to snatch this color on sale. The sole looks like it should last a while.

Wanted to get shoes for a trip to SE Asia that I could wear without nylons and would be relatively water proof. Was wary upon receiving shoes because they were so low cut and my feet are wide. These shoes are great! Comfortable immediately, dressy but can be worn with casual clothes. Originally bought the black/patent leather version but very glad I bought this pair as well.

These flats are very, very comfy. The toe area is hard, but the rest is very softly structured. As long as you don't need a wider toe box, these should be comfortable all day. Have them in eggplant, too and wear them all the time.

I have total love for these shoes. They are stylish, comfortable and a bit more well made than the usual 'ballet flat'. I need good shoes and not flimsy ones and these are it, I could not be more pleased! I ordered the silver to go with a lot of outfits and I'm trying to find a reason to order them in another color. The rounded toe is a great feature for my size 10 foot as well (these fit true to size for me).

I have been looking for great looking flats that are comfortable to wear all day. As a teacher, I spend most of the day on my feet, but with these Monica Ballet flats, I felt like I was wearing my comfy sneakers to class. I highly recommend that you give these shoes a try.

I love this shoe. The leather is soft and I don't walk out of it! I ordered a narrow, but even some narrow shoes are not narrow enough for my narrow heel. This shoe does not gap at the sides (a common problem for narrow feet) and my heel does not slip out of the shoe when I walk. There is not much arch support, but I didn't expect that there would be in a ballet style shoe.

Love the shoes. Love the color - not red, not purple. Goes with a lot of other colors very well. They are pretty comfortable, except after wearing them for hours yesterday I found they ran a little short as my big toe started hurting, but I wore them for hours and did a lot of walking, etc.

These are by far the most comfortable, supportive flats I've ever bought. The bottoms are much thicker than the average flats, making them very supportive if you are standing for a long time. The shoes are also very well made, and I'm hoping to wear them for a long time! The Cinnabar color looks exactly the same in person as it did on my computer screen, too.

I was looking for a stylish, comfortable black flat to wear while traveling abroad. Not necessarily to wear walking around all day/every day, but maybe just a day now and then and for dinners out in the evenings. My sister swears by Cole Haan Nike Air support shoes so I thought I'd give these a try. I love the Air Monica for its cute styling and my sis was right about the support. It's not up to orthotic level but it did the trick for me. My only problem was that after walking for long distances they put a little pressure on my big toe. (To be fair, this could have been due to another pair of flats I wore that already made my toes a little sore. ) I started wearing a pair of sheer black skimmer socks (virtually unnoticeable) and it helped tremendously. The more I wore them the better the fit. The made it through the grit and rain and over the cobblestones of London streets and they still look great.

I bought these for work, as I often walk long distances across a variety of college campuses for work. I bought them because of the support and the Nike Air technology. I've worn them on several business trips and loved the comfort and support of them. However, last week was the first time I wore them in warm weather without stockings. Big mistake as I now have a blister on both feet. I was hoping to wear them all summer because they are cute and professional looking while still being comfortable. But, now, with these blisters, I'm not sure I can wear them anymore. I got the black and white ring lizard, and it's completely adorable.

I just found out that Nike has sold Cole Haan. Does anyone know whether this will mean that Cole Haan will no longer have styles that have the "air" cushioning? My sincere hope is that the answer to this question is no.

Brands I'd also recommend: I typically only wear Cole Haan

I was looking for a lightweight flat for travel with arch support and cushioning. These provide a little/no arch support but good cushioning. They are slightly larger but not a full half size. I will wear them for evening dinners.
