True to size. I bought the Vaneli Serene to compare with the French Sole Passport (which runs at about double the price). Overall, I felt that the Serene won in the looks department (surprising!) whereas the Passport was more comfortable. Unlike other quilted patent-toe ballet flats out there, the Serene has a nice almond toe, which helps keep this shoe classic. The sides of the flat are just about average for a ballet flat -- neither too high (making your foot look long) nor too low (causing the shoe to gap as you walk). The leather and quilting itself seemed to be of good quality. In the comfort department, the Serene lost out to the Passport. The lining is synthetic, which causes my foot to sweat and get uncomfortable. Also, the little "heel" at the back is made of a hard plastic, not rubber, which means it slips on tile and wood floors. You won't take a fall because the rest of the outsole is rubber (so the ball of your foot stays planted), but having your heel slip around is certainly disconcerting! The Serene has no arch support (typical for ballet flats), but it's cushy enough to walk on. As with all ballet flats, I would probably add an insole for comfort.

Looks fashionable online, but looks very old fashioned on your foot.

I can usually buy Van Eli shoes through the mail and be assured of a good fit. Not so this shoe. Ordered my usual 8 slim which, if anything, usually runs a bit wide. This shoe arrived feeling 1/2 size too short and FAR tighter than any Van Eli slim width I've ever purchased. The shoe is going back, which is regrettable because it was just the style I was after.

A stylish, comfortable shoe. I love it, actually! You don't have to wear those clunky, awful looking shoes to enjoy a walk. (Zappos: Really appreciate the wide size options. Thank you!)

At first these shoes were very uncomfortable, leaving me with blisters on both feet. Now they are wearable, but definitely not cozy. I'm not sure if buying a size up would have helped...Cute, but not the most comfortable.

I'd also recommend: munro, french sole

Super cute, can go both dressy and casual. Shoe runs short for me so I'm exchanging for a half size larger.

These are the most comfortable flats I've had in a long time. Very Chanel looking with the quilting, and most important, the fit is perfect. I usually wear them with skinny jeans, but they compliment skirts as well. Zappos is putting fashion first with this choice.
