I wasn't impresssed with this sandal at all. It ran wide and the kitten heel was an awkward height.

Disappointed in the sizing, especially for this brand. I have several pair of Vaneli shoes, they are excellent narrow width shoes. This style however, runs short. I recommend going a half size up if possible. There's a unique sheen to the black fabric which could make it quite versatile.

I ordered my recommended size originally and it was slightly too short in length in my (longer) left foot. The 8.5 was perfect. This is not my first pair of Van Eli shoes.

I had hoped these would work for my extra wide feet but they did not. The ones I selected had a colorful pattern which I thought would go with most clothing. They do but the material is a bit stiff and didn't seem like it would stretch to accommodate my feet with time. Cute but a disappointing fit.

I love the look of these shoes. They are very classic and will upgrade any outfit you wear them with. I just wish the heel strap were a little tighter. I will need to have another hole punched in it to keep them from occasionally wanting to slip off. Otherwise they are perfect.

Love these shoes. Ordered them for a Labor Day weekend wedding. So excited to find fashion forward shoes in a narrow. I usually wear a 9.5 Narrow, but this a little short. I don’t like my heels hanging off or toes either. The 10 Narrow is perfect. Very comfortable-can’t wait to wear them.

Beautiful sandal! Perfect in every way except for the strap which was way too tight for my size 10 foot. And patent leather can't really be stretched. Too bad.

Very comfortable and stable to walk in!

Most uncomfortable shoe I have ever tried on.

Very soft and look good on. They do a great job of covering bunions and not looking bulky. Ordered first pair in my regular size but they were too narrow and felt about a half size too small. Returned those and ordered the size up. Unfortunately, that pair were too big :(

Love this sandal! I have bought at least 10 pairs of these in various colors.

Beautiful pump! I wear a 7 1/2 or 8 Narrow. However, I can usually wear a medium in Vaneli. This 8 M felt short and the width felt Narrow. I found another Vaneli pump that fits better so I am returning this one. Thank you Zappos!

The only reason I'm returning these shoes there is a place on the underneath part of the shoe the stitching is very sharp.

This sandal is fantastic! I ordered about 10 different ones and this shoe is a winner. Cute, unbelievably comfortable and there is no break in period. So glad this is the one I picked.

This site was not meant to fit narrow widths. Way too wide.

Love the velcro straps so you can adjust fit/width. They are comfortable and stylish. I liked them so much that I bought in another color.

The shoe overall is beautiful however, it is probably one of the most uncomfortable shoes I've worn in a very long time. I have very small petite feet and the sie 4 was a little long and in Vanelli, I am typically pretty true to size. The toes and ball of the foot are much more narrow than I am used to and again I have very tiny extremely narrow feet. Both of my end toes curled under and were scrunched in were in pain, but cuts on my big toes and middle toes and blisters on the balls of my feet. Overall, this is a pretty shoe but isn't practical to wear and is highly uncomfortable. I would not recommend it.

These sandals look beautiful and feel great. The leather is so soft and they hid my bunion without looking bulky at all. Seemed to run about half a size small in the foot bed so I am returning and have ordered another pair a half size up. Cant wait for them to arrive!

This shoe felt like it was a size too small. I returned them.
Zappos Reviewer on June 08, 2020
Narrow at the toe and heal. Having to exchange for a 1/2 size larger. I'm older and like a sandal to cover a good bit of the top of my foot and these are perfect.
Victoria from Lake Mary on June 08, 2020
Very comfortable. Well made. Size 12M fits perfect to my regular size 12M.
Mila from Sacramento, CA on June 02, 2020
These were SO cute that I texted a friend to give me a justification for keeping them. Sadly they were just a hair too small. A size up would've been too big, but they were too tight to break in. They were also a bit more of a pastel hot pink than I anticipated (rather than, say, a fuchsia) and would have been difficult for me to match in my wardrobe. But SO cute and comfy if you get the sizing right.
Zappos Reviewer on May 30, 2020
I have a narrow foot so I thought it would be great to have a full fit and an elastic in back but it hurt in the back and it pressed down into my foot in the front. It is a beautiful shoe and I am sorry I have to return it.
Miri from brooklyn, NY on May 27, 2020
Extremely cute shoe, but ran extremely small. I normally get 7.5 and even the size 8 was short. Will try an 8.5.
Zappos Reviewer on May 26, 2020
These are just the stylish flats I was looking for. I originally ordered my normal size 8, but then exchanged them for an 8 1/2 which has now worked out perfectly. Very pleased with these shoes, dressy but not too dressy.
