Women's Blythe Open Toe Ballet Shoes
Great Flat for a Wider Foot
I was a little nervous about purchasing this shoe given some of the other reviews. I wasn't sure what size/width to go for since some said the shoe was wide and others said it was tight at the toe. I usually wear a 10B although my foot is a bit wide and I have a high instep. That said, I decided to go with my normal size in the navy and prayed for the best. The medium width fit my foot well. They are a tiny bit long, but this is a common problem for me and the 9.5 would have been too short. I actually love the shoe and hope to buy more colors.

Not for narrow feet
These are cute shoes - I love the style and particularly love the soft gold leather that I bought. Such a classy colour, sort of distressed gold and very easy to work with all colours. However, the shoes are very wide (admittedly I know I have a fairly narrow foot) but as the leather is very soft and flexible, the shoe really gapes at the sides. The appear to be nicely made for a very casual shoe, not sure that they will have enough underfoot support for my liking on long walks. But for a quick runaround slipper, I think they will be fine. I'm keeping even though the width is not very flattering, because I love the colour so much!

very versatile and comfortable
I bought a gold pair last year and wore them so much that I bought a backup pair. I like the way the neutral color helps to visually lengthen my 5'2" stature. They go w/ almost everything--from jeans, to capris, to summer skirts and dresses. Well-made--stitched instead of glued in all the right places. Very comfortable and looks great w/ painted toenails!

Vintage feel flat
I normally wear size 11 so that I what I ordered, I thought they fit fine. Love the color, style and the workmanship. Probably not a good shoe for days when I need to do a lot of walking but will work just fine for an average day.

When I saw these I thought Great they are like my Sketchers in the same style. Well I put them on and they were tight, I bought a 1/2 size larger just in case. They hurt every where on my foot and no padding on the inside. Soles were very thin. So glad I can take them to Sears to return instead of mailing them back.
