True to size. I wear 12 med to wide. I ordered wide but shoe was too wide. The back of the heel was extremely wide. Unable to walk without shoe slipping. This was not a poor fit but I think a defect in the shoe itself in the wide lass.

This shoe feels and looks way longer and wider than a 7.5ww. This is an atypical comment from me since my foot is wide and I tend to prefer a WW in pumps.

The concept is a really cute shoe. It feels a half size small,the leather is very stiff and it cuts stiffly across the big toe so is going back.

I love these shoes. They fit perfect when I put them on. They look good, they feel good - true to width. Great buy for me!

The style is nice but they ran large in size. I usually wear a 7.5 which was much too large but even when I returned, the size 7 was also too large.

Great trendy boot. They look stylish with skinny pants rolled up a little on the bottom or tucked in. Run slightly big, so go for the smaller size if you're in between. I give it a 4 in overall because while they are leather, the leather isn't high quality, and it's a little thin.

Thankful that Bella-Vita makes real heels in WW...so many brands seem to think that anyone with an extra wide foot must be a senior citizen, obese, or otherwise undeserving of stylish shoes. As a young fit woman who just happens to have 4E feet, these make me happy. I'm a little worried that the suede will scuff easily, so am looking to get some protector spray. I normally hate the elastic look - it's something I see mostly on old people - but the design here makes it work.

The shoe is great looking but too narrow for me. My feet are extremely wide across the ball of my foot with super high arches...I have other Bella-Vita shoes that work great (am wearing the Kinsey boot in 7.5 WW right now and they are perfect) but perhaps due to the cut/seaming of the shoe right across the ball this just won't work for me. I ordered it in a 7 (half size down) based on reviews, and lengthwise that was correct, but even if I'd ordered my regular 7.5 I don't think I would have gotten enough width back, and the shoe probably would have slipped off at the heel. Returning. Also worth noting, I ordered the Zeta (in a 7.5 WW) at the same time and am keeping those - the fit is good.

Felt wider than marked - I am a true narrow and was walking out of the shoes. Felt true to size though. Bummer! They are so cute.

Love these sandals. I have a job in which I am on my feet all day. I wore them every day in September, and plan to continue wearing them until it is too cold. Very well made and extremely comfortable. I have a narrow foot, and it is so difficult to find such a great shoe with an amazing fit.

Love this shoe. I work in healthcare and can wear this heel for a 20 hour day. Makes conservative outfits interesting but could also use for a dressy occasion. Have these in black and Wren one in patent. It's my go to work shoe! Only issue with construction is that if twist and land on the heel it's made of some type of plastic that can snap - a little weird as I have not seen this on a lot of shoes. Overall highly still recommend.

Arrived quickly and I love these shoes! This is my first time reviewing something, so that says a lot. Very comfortable and stylish. I usually can't wear strappy shoes due to my wide feet. Super comfy and my little toes don't poke through the outside edge. Noticed after a few weeks of wear that one heel has a piece coming off, and seems to be made of a soft rubber. Still love these shoes, but will see about getting a heel guard put on for better wear. Would definitely order more, and even try for other useful colors. Hope they become available again and return next year.

I have been a Zappos customer around 5 years, their generous return policy is a huge selling point, I almost always come here first for my search when I have a shoe/boot in mind. I am a boot/shoe junkie and I purchased these booties as they have a lot of class. One of the cool selling points is you can remove the decorative harness and you can dress them up with a rhinestone boot bracelet and make them a completely dressy boot, or leave off the harness. These booties are very versatile. The fit is outstanding the heel is for those of us that have lower back issues, so they can be worn longer periods of time as opposed to a stiletto heel. The only draw back to Zappo's is that I pay by PayPal and have for years so your record of how good of return customer is not logged. I highly recommend this boot and am extremely happy with this purchase. You can wear a trouser sock with this but a thick sock will overtime stretch boot. If you want to wear thicker socks then I would go up a half size. I am a 6.5 and can pretty much buy everything on line with little return for sizing.

I ordered a 9W and my heel is slipping out. It fit well in the width. I can though that it will be a comfortable shoe. I am afraid if I go a half size smaller it will be too tight so I am returning for a 8 1/2 WW. I will let you know how it fits.

Got the shoe today and I can tell it will be comfortable however it is a half a size too large and my heel is slipping out so I am returning for a half size smaller. I will keep you posted...

When I tried these boots on, they were really large in the ankle, just right in the calf (I have wide calves and bought the wide shaft) but they were still wide at the top of the boot - more than an inch of space/gap at the top. Very clunky looking so I sent them back.

Beautiful shoes. Matched the dress I had chosen for a family wedding.As I don't wear heels often, the heel height was perfect.

I really love those shoes. Unfortunately they are very very narrow and I was not able to wear them and had to return them. They do not have any longer my size in the wider one!

Oh how I would have loved to keep these! They are such cool boots, great, great looking on, and I order the WW in boots for my wide foot, and they fit perfectly. Maybe could have even gone half size down, however they have a very hard heel and zero padding, so I know I would be hurting by the end of the day. Otherwise, I fell in love with them at first look. Highly worth the money if you can sacrifice some comfort.

I bought 2 different colors and wore them in France when I wanted a slightly dressier look and still needed to walk a lot. They were very comfortable, and I was pleased. I have a narrow foot, and the narrow was fine. I wear an 8 1/2 or 9. I bought these in 9.
