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.

These shoes were immediately comfortable. The fit and style are most commendable. I hope to get them is other colors.

These shoes are comfortable (I have wide feet in the front but narrow heels) but I slip in them too frequently. Something about the soles.

I ordered these for my elderly mother who has dementia -- I mention this because the experience of shopping itself was so elegant, thanks to Zappos Service. The first pair we ordered were small, for the record. The return was complicated by the fact that, besides her baseline condition, my mother lives far from me, and never did conquer email. But Zappos stood by us from beginning to end, helping out by phone as needed, providing shipping labels and packing guidance. Seriously. Reliable, friendly, courteous service, never without patience. The reorder, 1/2 size larger, worked out great. The shiny patent leather toe is a thrill for mother, the fit is perfect, her friends are amazed.

I love the Van Eli fit & moderate price. This is a shoe I feel safe ordering on-line. It runs on the narrow side, but so do my feet. Warning - this style is a little bit low-cut on the arch.
