I have found this shoe brand to run short on me. I had ordered four Bella-Vita shoes and found all of them to be too short, so I attribute it to the last and not the specific style. I ordered an 8 AA. I have Morton's foot, a high arch and a narrow heel, and have had surgery on the second toe of each foot (Morton's neuroma on the right foot and a hammertoe on the left), shortening those toes, but reducing flexibility. I have replaced the shoe with an 8.5 AA, and hope the width will feel as perfect as the 8 did. I hurried to replace the shoe before they ran out because the shoe looks great and the comfort and cushioning in the ball of the foot was terrific.

I loved this shoe! Very attractive. However, unlike the other reviewers, I found this brand to run too short. Note that I ordered a AA and that may fit differently. I have a high arch and narrow heel, Morton's foot, and have had surgery on the second toes of both feet (Morton's neuroma on one and hammertoe on the other), which resulted in shorter second toes, but much less flexibility in the toes. The comfort is phenomenal so I made sure to replace the shoe, a half size up, before they ran out!

A bit too narrow instep. It hurt the top of my foot when walking. Width was good on the sides.

This is a really comfortable shoe. The "platform" is really low and the shoe is not at all difficult to walk in and I never wear platform shoes. I wear an 8C shoe. From the reviews (a bit wide and short) I read I decided to order an 8.5 regular. It was too big. Size 8 regular fit fine on the next to smallest hole in the heel strap. If a regular with is usually a tight fit and a C width is fine, you can probably order a regular width in this shoes.

I feel the shoes run wide even in a narrow and there is no option to shorten the strap around the ankle. I did keep them but would not recommend them. They are a great looking shoe.

These shoes are a 'retro' look pump with a super comfortable foot bed, moderately high heel and very very comfortable. The price is reasonable. I am very happy with them.

I like these shoes very much. Stylish, comfortable, reasonably priced. The color will go with anything.

Great looking shoe but definitely a half size too big. I ordered a 7, which is what I always wear, sometimes a 7 1/2, and I needed to send a 6 1/2.

Beautiful shoe, there in insert at the front ball of the foot, that made it uncomfortable for me. With Zappos, exchanges are so easy, will be shopping again.

Love this shoe! It is super cute and comfy. I ordered this in both the black (8) and leopard (7.5), loved the leopard shoe, but the 7.5 was too short and zappos doesn't have it in my size anymore. I'm always in between an 8 and a 7.5. Will keep checking back to see if they have it in.

These shoes are just as they appear and are comfortable. However, I found the material used on the bottom of them to be slippery, so I returned them.

These are very comfortable, and the platform and the chunky heel helps make these pumps easy to walk in. The suede is nice and soft and allows some stretch in the toe box to accommodate your foot.

Great style, but too tight on the toe and metatarsal region. Severe red marks occurred on the metatarsal bone below the "big toe" within an hour of wear time. Supple leather and great red/orangish color, just couldn't recommend for comfort.

I really liked the styling of this shoe. Ordered it in two colors, pewter & ivory. Unfortunately, I had to send both back. Width was perfect. Length was oddly long. I wanted to try the grey in a half size down, but it's no longer in stock. If you're one of the lucky ones who fits into these, enjoy!

Very pretty, sexy heels, granite is a pretty dark-grey color with a nice looking black platform. The wide is just right, but the length is 1/2 size too long. I usually wear 8-9 wide and 8.5 wide in these slid right off my heel with each step. Returning for 8 w, hoping they work as I love Bella Vitas!

I love these shoes. I've had them for 4 months now, and they've been my favorite shoes this summer. They go with lots of things, and they're one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I own (though I have a lot of trouble with shoes). I'm able to wear them walking around all day with only a little bit of discomfort from not being able to wear socks. They are true to size and width. The leather has a nice amount of give to it, which makes it comfortable and secure on the foot, but it does make it a bit more difficult to get the shoe on. The white leather also tends to get dingy, as white shoes do, but a pass with the magic eraser got them looking like new. These shoes still look and feel great 4 months in, and I am hard on shoes.

Much too wide...but so cute! Wish I could keep these, but they are so wide at the heel they flop right off my foot. I can take a step in them. Such a shame they don't fit better, because they're good quality and very pretty. The pink color is dark and rich. They have to go back though, since even in size 5, they feel like I'm wearing my father's bedroom slippers.

I love the look of these shoes yet when I tried them on for the first time my small toe was not covered and tended to come through the opening. I think they run large and I may try to order half a size smaller and try that. The footbed is comfortable and they would be nice shoes with skirts and/or trousers and leggings. I hope that the second try of a smaller size will work for me. It has been a little inconvenient to order and send back, then order again in a different size.

I bought these shoes for work. I'm usually a 7 or 7.5 and ordered them in both sizes just to make sure. The 7 fit me like a glove but with the "Sock-Free Savers" I had to go half a size up. These shoes would be perfect if they had arch support, plus they do rub your heel when you first wear them. I hope to break them in soon.

I don't think this shoe runs true to width. I would call it a wide but not a double wide. Will have to return.

Really comfortable shoes. I've been looking for a white loafer that has a full rubber base and not a "driving shoe." For being a commuter by foot - I break down shoes fairly regularly. However, these have held up. Stay very clean (for being white) and very comfortable. I usually wear between a 9 - 9.5; and I went with a 9 for these.
