Women's Bianca Calf Hair Bow Ballet Shoes
Not quite right
I am usually a 9 and often a wide, but I ordered the 9 regular and assumed that these would stretch since they are leather (I'd rather my flats tight than falling off). However, the interior lining is not leather but fabric, which isn't easily seen from the photos. I decided to keep them anyway because I have been looking for leopard flats for a while and these are the only ones I've found that I've liked at all. Bows come untied easily, too.
As other reviewers have said, be aware that these do not stretch!

I love the look of the shoes.
They are so uncomfortable. I have to put so many bandages on my feet. It's the only way I can wear them.
I can't really walk around too much. They are sitting shoes.

Too low cut to provide any support.
The shoes ran small and were so low cut they would not stay on when walking let alone provide any support. They are being returned.

not worth the money
I agree completely with the others who have reviewed this shoe. They are not made well and have no support. I wore them to a party last evening and was on my feet for three hours. Today I am paying the price with sore feet and legs. I will not be able to wear them to work so they will be worn only for short periods. Too bad, they are cute, just not a quality product.

These shoes are very cute, but not substantial. Also, they rubbed the top of my foot to the point that I don't think I will wear them again. So disappointing!

Perfect Calf-Hair Flat. I'd been looking for just this Leopard Print and this is a great one. Very comfortable and have worn many times since they arrived.

KUDOS to customer service reps
I have wanted this shoe for quite a while. During the last 30% off sale I took the plunge and ordered my usual size 11M. They were much too big. I phoned customer service and they sent a size 10M at the same 30% off. Well the med. size 10 were too narrow so I phoned back and asked about the size 10 wide. They sent me another replacement pair again for the original sale price. I fully expected they would not exchange these a second time but they did, no questions asked. I don't usually have issues with my LE orders but the very few times I have the sales reps have really come through. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
The 10W fit. The bottom line is these are super cute shoes but have absolutely no support. They will be great shoes to take along with me when I go to someones house and have to remove outdoor shoes or boots. It would be great to see the same leopard print pattern of shoe, but more substantial, in a cute wedge with a 1 to 11/2 inch heel. PLEASE!!! Many of us over the age of 55 can't wear the high heeled models and need something with more support that doesn't look like an orthopedic shoe.

I so wanted this shoe to work for me...
...but it just misses the mark. I'd been looking for a leopard print shoe for a while, and was so happy to find these at this price point. When I took them out of the box, it was apparent that they weren't as well made as other Land's End shoes that I own, but they were cute enough that I decided I'd overlook the fact that they have a plastic sole and were lined in fabric, not leather. Then I put them on....and promptly took them off. I'm a consistent size 9.5 in Land's End shoes, and these were at least a half size too big. They cut into the top of my foot, and they just feel insubstantial -- they're cut so low on the sides that I'm worried my foot would fall out even if they were the right size. Sorry, Land's End, but these ones aren't quite right, and back they go.

cute but uncomfortable
I wore these shoes all day and then had to put slippers on to cook dinner because my feet were so sore from where these shoes rubbed. They look super cute, but definitely not worth the money - I got them on sale. The ties on top are floppy which is annoying when putting the shoes on because you have to make sure the ends are tucked in the top of your shoe. I have another pair of shoes just like these (all worn out) from another popular shoe retailer and they have stiff ties that I prefer.

Very cute, but a full size too large.
I loved these flats the minute I saw them! I ordered them and unfortunately were a full size too large. I've been happily purchasing shoes from LE for many years, but today these went back.I ordered the smallest size, no hope of getting them at all. Very disappointed!
