Women's Everyday Bungee Ballet Shoes
I received these shoes today, and wore them for about 1 hr. in my house. So far, they feel very comfortable. Normally in a flat I would go one size down, but taken the reviews into consideration, I ordered in my regular size, and I'm glad I did. The bungee cord string did press a little, but after a few minutes, I no longer noticed the impression. I do however, see what some viewers complaints were regarding the discomfort of the heel fit. There's and underling piece under the fabric lining at the heel that may be made of plastic, or another hard material, that protrudes through the lining, located where the heel meets the back of the ankle that can irritate this area. My plan is to adhere something small and cushiony on that spot. Otherwise, the floor of the shoe provides comfort, and the length is good. So these are a keeper. I almost forgot to mention, I have flat feet, which may be the reason the bungee cord doesn't really bother me.

I bought these to be an alternative to flip flops for my long skirts.
They look fine, but one of the bungee hooks broke as soon as I put them on.
The shoes are ok comfort-wise. I wouldn't count on them for a long day of walking but running errands they'll do.

LOVE these shoes!
I was so pleased with these shoes! They are comfortable and perfect for a cute alternative to sneakers. The sizing was just right, and true to my normal size. I was happy get them in navy as I have a hard time finding the color in stores!

I have been wearing these shoes in black and also in brown pretty much the whole winter. They are very versatile.
I am so sad but today I went to order these in a beige color and there is no selection for size whatsoever I am devastated.

Cute but small
Very cute and well made. Just a little on the small side. I would order a half or full size up. A little disappointed with the "cushion and support". I found the cushion to be quite hard and stiff.

The sizes are very inconsistent
I am very disappointed with my purchase. A few months ago, I ordered those shoes, and they fit perfectly.
They had become my everyday shoe for shopping or a nice walk. I liked them so much that I decided to order a new pair, same size, different color. What a disappointment when I tried the new one! They are too tight and hurt like crazy. I will have to send them back.
I do not understand how the same exact shoe, same size, same width would not feel the same, when in a different color.

Great little slip-on!
! wanted a casual shoe for jeans and sweats and am very happy with this purchase. After reading prior reviews about its fit, I ordered a 9.5 Wide (I usually wear a 9.5B), because I don't like tight straps across the top of my foot. This wide fits nicely without being loose. I have been wearing the shoes with light socks and have not experienced any discomfort.

Waffle-printed feet for all!
I bought this shoe to wear in the summer either with a thin sock or no sock at all. Sizing is tight, so this plan worked fine. The problem is the shoe is not flattering: the bungee makes the top of your foot bulge out strangely (I don't even have fat feet). The bungees also leave a pretty deep criss cross pattern on your feet when you take them off, which lasts for a while. Aesthetics aside, the shoe itself isn't super comfy. These shoes are fine for short treks, but definitely not for all day wear.

Great shoe except too short.
Regretfully I will be returning the shoes because they are too short. This is a problem I have found with Lands End shoes. I never have this problem normally when purchasing shoes. I was looking for this style and color so am very disappointed.

My new favorite shoe!
Love them! True to size (I wear an 8), and even though they seem wide on a narrow foot when I put them on, they stay on without effort and I hardly feel they're on. Walked with them in a snowy parking lot and had no trouble with traction--I felt surer on my feet than with any boots I've ever had! They're cute too, much cuter on-- and plenty of room for my bunion.
