Gorgeous! I've been looking for a red wedge slingback for ages. So happy with these. Very comfortable. Dressy enough for cocktails. Comfortable enough for play. Love!

I laughed out loud at the reviewer who said she wanted "real flat shoes, not slippers!" I couldn't agree more. For some reason, it's hard to find a nice flat or near flat shoe that comes up over the toes (so it doesn't dig into them), has some kind of added design feature such as a bow or jewel, and isn't a slipper that scrunches up around your foot. I want a solid shoe. Taryn Rose used to make several nice styles like this but not anymore. Couldn't find a Donald Pliner one either. And I don't want to pay almost $400 for a Sarah Jessica Parker shoe even though she does add that extra touch of style I'm looking for. I'm hoping this shoe satisfies all my requirements!

Very comfortable and I like that there is no soft material but the metallic stripe is waaaay too blingy for me. Giving some thought on how to dull it down and still keep it's integrity. Super nice other than that. There is plenty of room in the toe and the heel hits at just the right spot. Out of the several styles I have tried recently this one fits like a shoe should!

Love ara shoes, including this style. Great support and fit. But I'm just not into having so much black patent on a sneaker... would REALLY like these in black if they were nubuck or distressed suede. (Keeping this sneaker in the distressed silver tone, which I LOVE.)

I ordered these about 1.5 years ago for my grandmother, who is now 96. It was one pair out of about 5. After she tried the other styles on, we sent the rest back and kept these. Now she's asking to me to purchase another pair because she wears these all day, everyday, around the house and outside. She says they're very comfortable.

Really liked the style of this shoe. Although the length was too long (extra space at back of heel) and it was a bit too soft (sides are not rigid, and I was looking for more support).

Really cute shoes but a little too wide and I don't have a narrow foot.

Not quite cute enough, kind of looks like something my mother would like. Also runs a little short.

These are longer than they look in photos - probably an inch between the end of my toe and the inside end of the shoe. The design looked more over-the-top in person, too.

I wanted to like these, I really did. The leather is incredibly soft plus they are beautiful. Sadly, back they go. Too narrow AND the sole is, in reality, about 1/2 as thick as it appears in the picture. I need a thicker, more cushioned sole for my feet, legs, back AND Morton Neuroma. I kept the Alegria Essence & Alegria Taylor that arrived in the same shipment. Thanks, Zappos!

The shoes seemed very long for size 8 1/2 and not very wide for being sized as wide.

These shoes are fabulous. The leather is beautiful, the style is kind to my wide feet, the toe box is generous and covers my bunion. They run small in my opinion, I had to get a 1/2 larger. They are great looking to wear to work with a skirt, flat enough to be very comfortable and the low heel dresses them up a bit. LOVE this shoe!

I was a bit disappointed about the look of these shoes. They present better online than in real life. For the cost, I thought they would look a little more expensive and high quality, but frankly they look a little cheap to me. For anyone considering these, I would suggest finding a similar style but not this specific shoe.

Nice shoe and a good looking flat. If you need arch support, it's ok but not great. It would not be good wearing all day while traveling.

I love this brand of shoe. Very comfortable and stylish for a 60 year old grandma! It is a little wide for my foot, but I should wear a narrow but most styles do not come in narrow.

This is a very attractive shoe but the sizing is off. I usually wear an 8.5, which mapped to a UK 6. It's almost an inch too long.

I am so happy with these. I wanted a pair of shoes to be able to take the 20 minute walk from Penn Station to my office in comfort and style. I have a really comfortable pair of Merrill's that I have been wearing, but they are far from stylish and I always felt frumpy looking in them. These are really really comfortable for the walk. And they make me look "dressier". They are so nice that on some days, depending upon what I am wearing, I leave them on all day rather than change into the shoes that I leave at the office. I think I. At order another pair so I have them when this pair gets worn out! I am generally a 6.5 but after reading the reviews before I bought them, I ordered both the 6 and 6.5. My feet tend to swell a little when I walk, so I was concerned with the comfort for dutPrint the walk..whether they would get tight. I walked around the office for an hour a day for a couple of days and decided to keep the size 6. I have now worn them on my walk for the last frpew days and they are really comfortable, despite my slight swelling. So if you are unsure of the size, I would suggest the smaller one. Or, do what I did. Buy both and then return the one that doesn't fit. That's what I really love about Zappos. Free shipping there and back. It allows me to test them out and keep what fits best.

A little old-fashioned for my taste. Also seemed to run wide.

Bel lacks the edging of Bella that keeps the shoe from gaping. Love the look, but the shoes lack structure to look polished. The rubber sol of Bella just isn't all that noticeable. I'd choose Bella instead.
