Women's Gatas Mary Jane Shoes
I read the reviews before I ordered. I normally wear 9.5 or 10. Since 10.5 isn't offered, I ordered 11 and the length is OK. I ordered several pair of the Mary Jane type shoes a couple of years ago and the 10's fit length was fine at that time. I wish Land's End offered shoes in narrow width; the medium is really too wide to offer any kind of support. I don't use them for anything strenuous or the loose width fit would be a problem.

Not exactly what I wanted
I purchased these shoes as a second choice, the item I wanted has been discontinued. My purpose was to have a pair of shoes appropriate for indoor pool environment at my health club - sauna, steam, shower wear. Although they are OK, the insole is not removable and is somewhat over cushioned. I would have preferred a removable insole as I leave the shoes to dry in my locker. And, because the insole is deep, the shoe is a bit more shallow than I would like. I also think they are overpriced.

Cute little shoe!
Wore these shoes to my Zumba class and they not only looked cute, but performed well as a comfortable, light-weight dancing shoe.

Cuter online than in person
i was really disappointed that these shoes were not what I was hoping for -- I wanted both cute and comfortable and thought these would fit the bill.. I ordered both black and soft coral rose. Seeing these shoes in person, the style is more "old lady" than athletic Mary Jane. Even my mother agreed! I found the regular width to run about a half-size short. I wear a 10, and my big toe was all the way to the end (the width was fine). The toe box could have used a smidge more width. I felt the coral rose to be closer to salmon in color than coral. I was really disappointed because I was looking forward to replacing some favorite LE shoes which are on their last legs. Both pairs are going back and my search continues.

Color faded after just a few times wearing them
Fit. A little loos

I purchased these shoes to go to Thailand and expected these to be shoes I would wear secondarily with my sneakers taking the brunt of the walking tours. The opposite turned out to be true. I loved them. I wore them with Peds since the look is probably meant to show the skin of your foot, but if you so desire you could probably wear socks. No blisters after a week of touring--that's pretty impressive for a shoe that hits right at your heel angle. I agree with the previous reviewer regarding wide--however my feet ARE wide and this probably contributed to my comfort. I just wish Lands End would make a full sneaker on the same last since I am looking for lace up sneakers with a similar footbed.

short and wide
I like the look of these, but I should have ordered half size larger. Also, they seem a little wide so if your foot runs more towards the narrow, these may not be your best choice.

Great shoes for walking, even long distances. I wanted a good tread on sole for balance purposes. This one certainly gives support. They fit according to regular shoe size. Casual style looks good with either pants or skirt/dress.

Good Quick-on/Quick-Off shoe for people who with high insteps and/or can't stand slides
The bands across the top are pretty flexible, but the shoe stays on. The bands are very strong and don't cut circulation. The footbed does give some shock absorbency. The fabric on the insole came loose after one wearing. It's cute and trendy enough to wear with capris/ankles, or for my pre-teen daughter, with blue dresses (I got it in blue, and this blue seems match well enough with a lot of different colors of blue) If you can get it on sale, I recommend it.
