Love them. Perfect for work. Comfortable from the first wear. Simple yet versatile and the leather finish makes them durable.

Stylish, well designed, and comfortable. They fit well, no gaps around the instep like some flat shoes.

I'm in love and so comfortable! These are even better looking in person and will dress up or down nicely. Very much exceeded my expectations.

These are a simple, straightforward, and reliable black flat that are comfortable enough for commuting and structured enough to wear in a corporate environment. Around the office they are very comfortable and the fit is true to size, though they start to feel a little too stiff after walking around Manhattan on a summer afternoon. They aren't as comfortable as a ballet flat or as stylish as a wedge, but they are comfortable and stylish enough to serve their purpose. As for the fit, I tried them in a wide and a regular since sometimes I like a slight bit of extra room in the toebox, but these are wide enough that the regular fit just fine.

Love these Cole Haan shoes for work and for dressing up a pair of jeans. They are very comfortable and true to size. I liked them so much, I bought a second pair in a different color.

Feels stiff for the first couple of times I've worn them. The shoe looks very stylish and the leather is of great quality. The black pair goes well with all of my black toned work outfits.

These are beautiful shoes, some people may have to size up. They look great with anything, dress them up or down. I am not into pointy shoes but, these look great, very classy. Buy them, do not hesitate. I am happy. I got the beige and black.

Great neutral flat. Shoe has good structure and a nice little shine so makes a casual look a little more put together. A little stiff when you first get it so you have to break them in a bit (but I never got any blisters so it's not bad). I love this shoe for work.

A very nice shoe - great looking and comfortable (needed a little breaking in). Note - I sometimes go up half a size in Cole Haan, and in the black I ordered an 8 1/2, which was perfect. But I also ordered the tan, which oddly was much too big in 8 1/2 so I returned for the 8 which was perfect.

Love this shoe! Very comfortable if you size up 1/2 size. I normally wear 6.5, and the 7 is perfect. The pattern is unique and the pointy toe gives it a more sophisticated look for a flat. Even my husband who despises flats said he really likes them.

Based on another review I also ordered a size up just in case. It is better so I am returning this. I had a short window to get a nice shoe for a special occasion.

This is a great dress shoe when you want a flat. The toe does not feel too pointy and is more comfortable than it looks.

I'm normally an 8.5 in flats and found these to fit true to size. It took a couple wears to break them in, but now find them very comfortable. I have the same shoe in the black patent and find that one ran slightly smaller than the sandstone.

These are beautiful neutral shoes, and I wish I felt I could walk in them for more than a block with my toes hurting. I'm very sorry to have to return them as I walk all day and they wouldn't be practical for me.

These shoes are gorgeous. So gorgeous that I kept them even though they cut into the top of my foot a bit! I wear light hose with them for that reason and there is no problem. I have a wide foot and loved that in came in a C width. They are wide enough; it is the shape that causes the "cutting in".

This is a beautiful flat. I am normally a 9 AA. This shoe ran short. The 9.5 AA was a more accurate length compared to other shoes my size but by sizing up to a 9.5 AA the shoe got too wide. It gapped on the sides and looked unattractive on my feet. Had to return. If it fits you right, I think you would love this attractive shoe. Looks high end.

These are very stylish shoes, but the wide was too tight for me. I supposed I could break them in, but I don't really have the time. I'm sad because they are very appropriate from the office to the bar.

Very cute and professional looking shoes. However they are terribly uncomfortable! No cushion or support and the toe box is a little tight. Cole Haan is normally my go-to shoe brand for comfortable yet attractive flats and pumps, but this pair didn't live up to my expectations at all in terms of wearability.

Cole Haan is known for their quality and this shoe doesn't disappoint. It is a beautiful shoe that goes with everything. I ordered a 9 1/2 narrow and it felt true to size and was very comfortable, however I ended up returning because the toe/vamp is really too pointy. I think an almond toe would be prettier. I wish these would have worked out. PS - Cole Haan please offer a better selection in narrow widths. It's not fair that those of us with odd widths have to choose from grandma shoes.

I did not realize how pointed the shoe is. It was not that comfortable to me and it slipped on my heel.

I ordered the 7.5 M which has worked well for me in this brand before. The shoe is lovely, with careful placement of the reptile pattern to give a flattering layout on the top of the shoe. The problem was the fit. I could barely get my foot in the shoe it was so tight. Both toe to heel and width were extremely tight. I tried to keep them on for a few minutes to see if the material would relax but it literally made my foot puff out of the shoe like a muffin. I returned with great reluctance, since there are no wide shoes in this style. The sizing is so different than my earlier experience I wonder if there is an error in labeling the shoes.

These shoes are beautiful, yet painful. I unwisely wore them for a full day of travel when I first got them and am still recovering from the blisters on my heels three weeks later. I'm not sure if Zappos will take them back after that kind of wear. I did not order a size up because some reviewers stated they then became too loose on the heel. I would recommend them if you can get the right fit because they really are gorgeous.

The most painful shoes I have ever worn. The leather is so hard. I love Cole Haan shoes so figured they would break in. Nope. Have tried several times and now give up. And unreturnable because they tore my feet up so badly.

I am usually pleased with my Cole Haan purchases. The magnolia skimmer is a very narrow shoe. Even if you order wide. Maybe order a half size larger than you normally wear. I am sending these back. Way too tight all over.
