Dukemu Block Kitten Heel
The fit was true to size. The heel is a nice height. They are very comfortable and the peep toe adds interest and makes the shoe prettier then a plain round toe. They were a nice alternative to sandals for a summer wedding.

These are cute shoes out of the box. The leather is sot and accommodated my wide feet by sizing up. The white soles were comfortable, and the neutral pink color was pretty. However, for the price they just looked too plain on me. They did not look cute or special to me when on. Perhaps I just prefer a bit of embellishment or change in texture.

I wanted to love these shoes because of the beautiful leather and pretty pink color. I had read that the leather is so soft they adjust to your foot shape. I have wide feet and had that experience with another brand with soft leather, but it did not look like that would work with these even though I tried two sizes. The shoes came up too low on the sides of my feet to look good, and my big toe showed up in the top. There were ripples across the top because of the soft leather, and the shoes looked plain. There was very little cushioning from the sole and none in the footbed. Luckily, Zappos is great about returns!

These are lovely shoes, but even with sizing up they were too narrow for my wide feet. They look very pretty out of the box, nice color , nice leather, and streamlined, but a bit plain on the feet. The pointy toe is best for narrower feet, in my opinion.

Order one full size up. These are beautiful shoes, but by the time I sized up, the were too wide. So sorry I can’t keep them.

These shoes are broken in the minute you put them on. Due to chemo treatments I have neuropathy in my feet. Many shoes are too stiff for me to wear. These shoes solve all of my problems. I can see myself living in these shoes!

I LOVE these shoes. BUT they are way small. I ordered the 8,8 1/2 and 9. The nine was finally long enough but by sizing up they we sloppy in the heal and gapped at the sides. I am very disappointed as I really would love to have these. Good thing there is such great service at Zappos. I will continue my hunt for shoes that work for me!

I am pleased with this shoe; my first purchase from this vendor. The fit is consistent with a medium width but gives me some space for my bunion. I love the color and style of the shoe and the heel height is perfect. The shoe is comfortable for moderate walking and standing. I also like the quality of the materials used and the comfort padding in the soles of the shoe.

The length felt short and my feet are too puffy on the top to wear these shoes - looked like I had foot-muffin-top. Probably a cute shoe for someone with less fleshy feet.

Nicely made shoes. I took reviewers advise and ordered down a half size. Glad that I did, therefore checked " true to size" for size 8. Have been wearing shoes around apt. with socks over to keep sole clean and feel that the usual 8.5 would have slipped off. Perhaps a bit snug where the two leathers meet at bunion spot in the toe box. Will keep shoes.. Zappos is such a convenient way to shop. Thanks

These are so tight. I'm a true 7, but I can barely walk in these. I ordered the taupe color
Zappos Reviewer on June 05, 2019
Because only the cognac color comes in actual leather, that color sold out quickly. The black nubuck that I ordered looked nice but the edges of the straps felt like cardboard. I didn't feel that they would soften over time, so I have to return the sandals. The insoles are somewhat padded but lack true arch support. It's too bad about the material because the style is attractive.

loved the shoe but seemed to run a bit small.
Zappos Reviewer on May 29, 2019
As others mention, these run a size small. The size 12 fit my size 11 feet perfectly. Very soft, buttery leather. However...because the footbed is totally flat, (not curved slightly upwards as in the pictures) the leather is pulled down over the top of the foot such that you can see the outlines of your toes. My big toe would undoubtedly wear a hole through the top of these in a month or two—so back they went.

I really like this shoe and have purchased it in quite a few colors over a span of about 13 years. I still have my original pair that I now just wear around the house. I am nit sure they will ever wear out!!! I learned some years ago to order 1/2 size larger as FS/NY tends to run small in length. I love the ballet pink color I just ordered. PERFECT! The leather is soooo soft.

Love these sandals. If you want a great dupe to the Hermes sandal, these are it! They run a full size too small though so order up. I wear a 7 in all shoes and needed an 8 in these.
Zappos Reviewer on May 21, 2019
These looked super casual, but didn’t fit my feet at all.
Zappos Reviewer on May 19, 2019
Fit well, elegant style for a low heel. I only returned them because the suede was too winterly for my summer dress.
Susan from Georgia on May 19, 2019
I had to return them---I usually wear a 10-1/2, and the 11 was too small. Really cute patterned patent leather, though, and nice, non-slip but not-clunky sole.

A little hesitant to spend $150 on a pair of sandals from a brand I haven’t heard of, pleasantly surprised at the quality. Size is true. I have a narrow foot, so the width does have some room. Best Hermès dupe I have found.

I loved these flats and was so sad when I had to toss my old pair (after 8 years of continuous use) that I went right back on to Zappos yesterday and ordered the same exact pair. I walked all through France and Spain (miles and miles... or rather, km and km) and they were so comfortable the whole time. I personally like the black patent leather - you can dress them up or down depending on what you wear with them. Love, love, love these flats!
Laura from San Francisco on May 15, 2019
These were just ok. They were not as comfortable as I needed as they were a little stiff out of the box and I was expected to walk about 10-12 hours a day in them. They were also a little more matronly as I would have liked. They went back.

I now own four pairs of the Sloop and here’s how it goes. They do feel a half size small initially but quickly stretch to fit your foot. The first two pairs I bought 4 years ago for comfort while traveling, and I bought 1/2 size larger than normal. Great strategy until they stretched out and they now bag and slop on my feet - but I still love and wear them. This time I ordered my too-snug actual size. It was a bold move as the cost isn’t cheap, but I read the reviews and drew on my own experience with the larger size. They are stretching to fit my feet quite nicely and I don’t regret the size change at all. Looking forward to more years with these beautiful comfort shoes!
Zappos Reviewer on May 10, 2019
I read the reviews and even went a full size larger (I am normally an 8, I ordered a 9) and it did not fit. I mean, I got my foot in but you could see my big toe. Yes, they are leather. Yes, they will stretch out with wear but I didn't even attempt walking around in them. I just put the back in the box to be returned.

the problem with these shows is the fabric edging in the front was placed just to dig into my upper foot. Unfortunately the quest for stack heel, square toe, black pump continues. If I ever find the right one, I'll need to buys multiples!
