This shoe is very comfortable. Does not have to be broken in. From the picture I thought the shoe would be silver, then a darker gray and bronze in the back. The front piece is gold. I'm still glad I bought them. They really make an outfit look special. A very striking shoe!

The shoe fits great and is comfortable, but I am disappointed in the color. I thought it would be a true red, but it is more a paler orangey red - not the deep color I was looking for.

This is a well constructed, comfortable and stylish sandal that provides a versatile choice for casual to work attire. The only negative of this shoe for me is that it's not very flattering on my feet since the angle of the arch support is so steep, my toes are sort of scrunched forward, rather than evenly distributed on the shoe bed. Otherwise these are a good value for quality and style.

Beautiful shoe, but I need wide width. (They were out of the wide.) So I'll wait until the wide comes back in stock.

These are my favorite summer shoes. Have worn them virtually every day since they've arrived. They work with jeans, crops and dresses. They are the most comfortable shoes in my closet. Wore them to a trade show where I know, during the course of the day I walked at least three miles and my feet and back had no sign of fatigue. I may as well have had on my running shoes. This is my 4the pair of Belle Vita shoes and, while I love the other three pairs, these are my favorites.

The straps made me feel too confined. The heel is comfortable but the strap didn't fit we'll with me. My feet didn't hurt but I just can't wait to take them off and that is only here at home while I was trying it on. I can't imagine wearing it all day at work, this goes back!

Cute pump. The gold toe on the black patent is a little edgy, yet still classic. The toe box is narrow and the heel is high. This shoe is not meant for high arches (shoe is wider than foot in the middle). May be more comfortable with tights, however, looks like the middle will stretch easily and the toe is just not long or wide enough & heels rub.

I searched high and low for a pair of sandals to wear to a wedding that didn't cut into my feet and these were the winners. They're really comfortable. The material is soft and has just enough stretch to it. The criss crossed straps did start to feel tight on my feet by the end of the night, but it wasn't too bad. I highly recommend this shoe.

These are absolutely gorgeous shoes, but are incredibly painful, have no grip, and already had specks of dirt on them fresh out of the box. Completely stunning but unusable shoes.

Tried these in wide, even though I normally wear a medium. They were still too tight upon trying them on to risk keeping them. Had to send them back, even though they are very beautiful shoes.

I bought these in the taupe leather. I was not impressed with the quality of the leather. It looks like something I can buy at Payless, but instead spent quite a bit on. However, I have large and wide feet (11½-12W/WW) and when I put them on I absolutely the way they feel but I do not like the way they look. They really are comfortable and one of the few sandals I have found that do not pinch my toes. Maybe the different colors would look better, but the taupe is a nope. I cannot justify the amount I spent and I will be returning them.

A nice shoe but not exactly what I was looking for. The upper is a silk material and looked a little to formal for me.

I love this shoe. It is so comfortable that I ordered it again only it had a flaw in the strap that kept curling over when you put your foot into the shoe.

I wear a size 12 shoe. This shoe fit fabulously, made me feel uber sexy, and was not uncomfortable to walk several city blocks while wearing.

Great shoe! I love wearing this shoe with my spring and summer outfits. They are very comfortable and look nice. I am anywhere between a 7 - 7 1/2 and ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly. I appreciate how they don't slide off my feet nor do they pinch, as peep shoes can.

Very cute. Was excited to see this boot came in a narrow width. Normally wear 8 1/2 or 9. Ordered size 9 narrow. The heel and width fit great, but the boot was too short and uncomfortable in the toe area. Returned.

Love these shoes. It's hard to find sexy shoes that don't kill my feet but these are really comfortable and so hot.

I own this shoe in two colors. I love them! I wear an 8.5 medium and it is completely true to size. My biggest concern is how flexible the shoe is when walking - and these shoes flex enough so you don't look like you are walking with boards on your feet. Secondly, I need to be able to stand in them for 12 hours - the toe box is soft and comfortable. I am accustomed to a high heel - so the height doesn't bother me like it does others. I wish they would introduce new colors this year!

As other reviewers have noted, I had to go a whole size down from my usual shoe size (from 8.5N to 7.5N) in order for the straps not to be too loose on my foot. Unfortunately, at that point it was obvious that I had stuffed my feet into a shoe that was too small, because my toes were hanging off the front edge of the shoe. It's a shame, because otherwise these were very cute.

First of all, I LOVE the way the heel of this shoe is built. I'm normally very clumsy in heels, but when I tried these on, I even took off running in them and they were very stable. However, as other reviewers noted, the toe box pinched my feet, and when I walked, the shoe scraped against my big toenail and made an annoying squeaking sound. Going up half a size to a 9 eliminated the toe box problem, but then the shoe was too large for me in the heel, so sadly they had to go back. I will be looking for other styles to try from this brand in the future.

Bottom line: these are longer than marked. I typically wear an 8.5, & there was way too much shoe sticking out in front of my toes. I'll probably try a half size smaller, as these are nicely styled & feel comfortable.
