Women's Everyday Bungee Ballet Shoes
Perfect color, fit and very comfortable to wear.
I love the design and quality of the product. Very comfortable to waer especially when you do a lot of walking activity.

Hang in there! It gets better.
I wear an 11W and ordered an 11W in the black. They were so comfortable I came back and got them in navy & gray (and they were on sale!). Yes, the elastic can be a bit annoying in the beginning. Not enough to send them back, but just enough that you wonder how the shoe would do if the elastic "accidentally" broke. It does stretch out eventually. The other issue was blisters. I developed blisters on the outside curve of my heels, where the heel back curves down and meets the side piece. This could just be me though and the way I walk, as I tend to wear the outside corners of heels down. It helped to step down on the backs to loosen them up a bit so they were more flexible. The shoes were too comfortable to give up and send back! I'd buy them again #assuming the quality doesn't change between now and then#.

I purchased the stone grey color, and they go with everything (skinny jeans, casual dresses, etc.). They are great for wearing in the fall before the weather gets too cold to go sockless. My only complaint is that the bungees across the top hurt at first. I had read another review that said they took time to get comfy. After about a week of wear, the bungees have relaxed and they no longer hurt. The wide width is true to size.

Practical AND cute
I love these shoes! I bought them to wear when I travel and do a lot of walking. I didn't want open-toe sandals, but I didn't want to wear athletic shoes. These look dressy enough for all occasions, but are a very comfortable walking shoe. The fit is true to size. One thing I read here that is indeed true for me is that the criss-cross elastic straps are a bit tight. They are strechy, though, so I suspect they will give some. I do not find them so tight that I can't wear the shoes, though. The reason I did not rate the shoes a full five stars is that they actually have a bit of a suede look and feel and I was not expecting this. I suspect that the shoes may look worn quickly if I get caught in too many rainstorms. I live in London, so my shoes are bound to get wet sooner or later!

I purchased a similar shoe a few years ago and since they were nearly worn out went in search of a replacement. My first pair did not have the bungee feature and would prefer these new ones not have the bungee. But I really can't complain as the shoe is extremely comfortable and will likely wear these out as well.

...the stretch cord over the instep is so tight that it hurts. Other than that, the fit is good. My instep is not high.

These are great summer slip on shoes
They fit great, easy slip on and sturdy enough for walking about in wet or dry weather. I love them. This is my second pair in a light color

Cute and cool alternative to sandals
Love these for when I need the cool ventilation but want a little more foot coverage/support than a sandal. Like some other reviewers I thought the bungee straps pinched my foot a little at first, but they must have relaxed some because after about a day it was no longer uncomfortable and didn't leave marks on the top of my foot. Really enjoyed these for a hot and dusty day at the zoo with a lot of walking.

For a long time, I have not found a pair of comfortable slip-on sneakers until I causally tried on this pair at Sears. What a surprise for me, it is so comfortable and cute too. It holds my feet well and provides good support. The thin rope can be scratchy but does not cut the skin, so it is ok. I have the black pair.

Perfect for Travel
I wore these all over France, and was very comfortable. The one day I wore different shoes... I regretted it! At first the elastic criss-cross was too tight and dug into my foot, but that eventually loosened up. Designers - would be nice to make the elastic adjustable!
