Love these shoes. They are just what I was looking for, and the mostly grey color matches everything. They are comfy, needed no breaking in, and are just right for my job as a middle school principal. Even though they match almost everything I own, I may another color, as that's how much I love these shoes. My heels do slip out a bit, but I have that problem with every dress shoe I own. My feet are huge(12B), my heels are narrow, and my toes are wide. These are simply as close to perfect fit as I've ever had.

I have this in black. It is a classic work shoe with a rubber sole. It's comfortable all day. I ordered the wide and it was a little wider than I expected - nothing a heel pad couldn't fix.

I loved these online, but was a bit disappointed when they arrived. Their true color is a bit more faded-out looking than the picture online. They aren't for me, so back they go.

When I opened the box, I thought that these boots look great! But, the arch is a bit too high for my feet otherwise I would have kept them.

I totally agree with that they cut painfully across the big toe area. They are going back. They are attractive but don't pass my requirement to be comfortable out of the box.

For the first time ever, I encountered shoes that were too large for my size 12 feet! These shoes are lovely but they just did not fit. Additionally, there were scuff marks on the heels of both shoes so even if I had wanted to figure out a way to work with the issues of fit, I would not have been able to overlook the damage to the material.

Adjusting the buckles on the side created a strange bump in between the straps (you can see it a bit on the side view of the black pair here). Without adjusting them the top is uncomfortably wide and loose. Ended up returning them.

I love these boots. They fit my difficult 9 WW feet and feel comfortable. I have had some difficulty with the zipper. It is really hard to zip. I really like the fit of Bella-Vita shoes and boots. I have several pairs of this brand.

This is a beautiful shoe. It looks really nice and feels comfortable. I am returning because I switched the color dress I am wearing to a wedding and because for me, they are a bit too high.

I loved this oxford style. I loved the tassel. Ordered in 11 W Unfortunately the wide width was too narrow in the front and too wide in the heel. Length was okay. I wore them in the house for a couple hours hoping the leather would relax with the warmth of my foot, but it didn't budge. The stitching where leather meets fabric prevents it from loosening. I have a slight bunion on my left toe that the stitching rubs against, which is why I can't wear most ballet style shoes and prefer shoes that come higher on the foot. From reading reviews WW would have been way too big in the heel, I'd be walking around like I'm in flip flops. So back they go for a pair of Naturalizer similar but no tassel.

I love these boots! Got them in grey suede and they are incredibly stylish. I received multiple compliments on my first day of wearing them. Moderate heel makes them comfy and they have a padded insole which helps on the concrete. Love the silver buckles - most boots have gold hardware. Would buy another pair in the black leather but they're sold out in my size. Would highly recommend!

I loved these boots when I first tried them on. They look really nice and the gold accents are a nice touch. The zip is a little hard to get on and off, it is a little stiff, but the shoes are very nice and stylish. I even got an outfit to match! Unfortunately, I have to send these back. I usually wear 8.5W, but the W is not wide enough. After walking a few blocks my feet started to hurt badly, I could not walk anymore. The front pinched my feet really hard and the shoes are hard in the front so there was no space or softness to expand. I really like these shoes but they pinched my toes a lot. I am going to try a WW which is a first to see if perhaps that would be better because I really like these boots!

This is a really cute boot. It looks very good with an off-white outfit. I wear a 12N. It slips off my heel. I will need to put pads inside the boot for a better fit and comfort.

Very cute! The wide part of my foot hits in the open part, which is perfect. Love the contrast of the criss-cross straps, tho I wasn't sure from only the photo. Unfortunately, I can walk right out of them. I will reorder a half size smaller.

Really cute bootie, good quality materials, well made. Sadly had to return because it did not fit. The insole does not come out to accommodate an orthotic.

Love this shoe, the comfort is great. while wearing the shoe, can't tell whether it's a flat shoe or a heel. Thanks to Zappos. ordering my second pair.

Looking for a cute and versatile shoe and I love the oxford look, so I ordered these in the grey and black, size 10 WW. When they arrived they were not wide enough and were clearly not going to work. Additionally while cute in pictures, they were cheap-looking in person.

I wanted to love these shoes. I ordered two pairs from Zappos and one from shoes.com. I am returning my 3rd pair. I am a true 8 medium. I ordered that first. They were way too big. I ordered a 7.5 and they were way to0 tight. I ordered a 7.5 wide. They were too tight in the toe box and a little too big in the back. The design is so chic. I just wish they made these more comfortable. They may work better on narrow and flat feet.

These are so cute - some style twists that made me really want them to fit! But, alas, they gap at the inside middle with every step, and for some strange reason the left heel sticks every few steps and my foot pops out.

These shoes are sexy and gorgeous and look even better in person. A very classy shoe with a unique style that isn't at all cookie-cutter. The nude patent color elongates the legs. I never feel fully comfortable in heels, but for a heel of this height these shoes are about as comfortable as you're going to get. The wider heel base and tread platform at the front add to the stability and comfort. I normally wear an 8.5 but needed and 8 in these, and still had to put heel pads at the heel so they don't slip. Love these shoes and they are perfect with midi-length dresses. Va-va-voom!

I have a pair of Belle Vita shoes that I absolutely love and have taken them to shoe repair so I can continue to get more wear out of them. So when I saw these I couldn't wait to order. Unfortunately, I was highly disappointed. I ordered this one and the Wren in croc black. I always order a size down with slingbacks to avoid slippage. The material of this shoe was very uncomfortable. Unlike previous reviewers, I did experience rubbing but the shoe fit perfectly with no slippage. All of the material is manmade with no give. I guess I didn't pay attention when ordering. I checked my favorite Belle Vita shoes and the upper of the shoe is soft leather, not man made. I guess that's the difference. Anyway, both shoes going back.
