Sloop Flat

I wear a size 10 and had to purchase a full size up. The seam around the top of the shoe was still quite tight in several places, so I broke them in with a few layers of moleskin on the tight spots. It only took a few wears, and I think they’re going to be quite comfortable!

The outer edge rubbed my ankle. I know this would have been painful after an hour or two. Felt a little larger than true size.

This is a beautiful flat, very elegant & subtle. I'd have kept the bone multi & ordered the 'stained glass' version as well - except the shoe runs small & they don't make anything larger than a 10. Had to return them reluctantly.

I love this flat - great for work or short walks but is not built for long distance. You have to order a full size up. I am 7.5 and order 8.5 no need breaking in and I own several colors.

Love French Sole’s Zeppa but it isn’t built for walking an entire day - I already have a few other colors. I wear this for work and it is fine. I am a 7.5 and always order this style half a size up. I live howbit shimmers a bit and goes well wearing a black outfit.

This shoe is a cute Chloe knockoff, but even as such, it’s not cheap! I’m disappointed in the quality for the price. The letter is beautiful and buttery soft, but there’s not much else to the shoe- not much padding and the sole is pretty thin. It’s just really not durable and doesn’t justify the price. But if you’re looking for a very pretty, lightweight, minimal ballet slipper and don’t plan to keep it for a long time, this is a good one.

These flats are absolutely gorgeous & I'd have paid the price in a heartbeat - if only they'd fit! They don't even make a larger size than 10... I guess women have small feet in Spain & I'm out of luck.

This is a beautiful shoe. Soft, supple leather. One size too small and narrow. Definitely keepers if they had fit right. :-(

The shoe is very cute. I usually wear a 9, but I ordered an 8.5. It was absolutely huge. Could not keep it on my foot. It was so big I don't think any smaller size would work because then it would be too short.

These shoes were so adorable, but the top cut into to the tops of my feet so badly! I had to return them.

Love these shoes. They are an interesting color, a cross between grey and beige tones. I wear an 8-1/2 N but the shoes run large and I had to send them back. I would love to order another when they are on sale again. The price tag is a little steep. I recommend them.

Almost fit, but seems to feel more like a half size smaller in length. If there was a half size up available I'm sure these would be perfect. I'm sure to a degree they "stretch out" but since a lot of the tightness as at the edge that meets the foot I don't want to find out this rubs and causes some sort of blistering. Unique style, very little support . You can really feel the ground under you!

I have various shoes in size 9, most in 9.5, and some in size 10. I tried the 9.5 sloop flat first and could not believe they would stretch out to be comfortable, they were so painfully tight. I do understand the concept described by other reviewers and wanted to be careful not to buy shoes that would stretch out too much. I wound up ordering a size 10 to compare- I am grateful for Zappos shipping & returns! The 10 is only slightly tight and I think will stretch to comfy perfection. I will update the review as they break in, but for now I am liking my French Sole Sloop flat in the black Nappa leather. I was looking for a well-made, leather minimalist shoe for work and it was surprisingly difficult to find! I do wish they didn't come quite so far up on the foot, but overall I am happy with these.

Great color and style. The fit is true to size, unlike some of the FSNY flats. It feels a bit loose and floppy due to the back strap, which doesn’t stay up very well. Not sure how these will wear over time. The toes of the shoe feel a bit like molded boxboard, and they’re getting a funny crease where my toes bend. The suede seems quite delicate.

I am a true size 9.5 and I could barely get my foot in this shoe. It was like Cinderella's step sisters. I can't even gauge comfort because I couldn't really try them on. I like the look of these shoes and know folks who swear by them, but they are not for me.

These are beautiful shoes and just what I wanted, however the sizing did not work for me and Zappos doesn't have the size I need. I am a reliable size 10 with long toes and a somewhat narrow, low volume foot. I ordered my true size based on the reviews which indicate that this should should be stretched to fit. Thanks to the soft, minimalist construction of this shoe, I am able to get my foot into it, but it seems extraordinarily unlikely that I would ever be able to stretch it enough for comfort. I ended up buying a barely worn size 11 on ebay to see how the break in goes, before committing to a smaller size at full retail. Nonetheless, these are fabulous shoes for anyone wanting a minimal flat, and I recommend taking the effort to find your correct size. The Pewter Nappa is beautiful and shiny, but not quite as glossy as the stock photos suggest.

The shoes I received look worn! There is a heal mark and the sides are coming undone!

Sole is thin thin thin rubber. Seems pretty pricey, but they are cute. Shoe is wide, but definite order half size up. I'm a 7 1/2 and 1/4 of my heel hung over.

Terrible shoe! I’m a 9 and size 10 was still too small and hurt everywhere.

I love minimalist shoes and I wanted something a bit fancy. This is it! I adore the utter flatness of the sole and the wrinkly look of the leather allows for much greater flexibility than other patent leather shoes. I also have the grey foil, which covers the toes better than the patent leather.
