Women's Lucy Pointed Toe Slingback Shoes
So cute, fit a bit strangely
After reading many negative reviews, I bought these shoes anyway in navy/white stripe because they were so cute I just had to have them! I also ordered the other blue pattern but returned them because the fabric was more satin-like and I had been expecting canvas for both. I don't mind "toe cleavage" so that doesn't bother me at all. The fit is my only issue - I ordered an 8.5, which is my size, and the fit was perfect on the toes, but a bit loose on the back. I have a feeling if I ordered the 8 that the toe would be too snug. It could just be my foot. I kept them anyway, because I like the price and style! Wish they would carry these in more basic colors.

Super cute and comfy flats!
I bought the orange and blue ones which go perfectly with a dress I own. Also, I ordered the flower ones to go with the matching sweater on Lands End. They were back ordered, but they are on their way !already. Great buy!

Like they were made by someone who doesn't design shoes
I wanted to love these. I bought the orange/yellow floral, which is gorgeous, and straight out of the box I was delighted. But the fit is awful. I own tons of pointy shoes (so I know how they are supposed to feel when they fit!), but these are narrow in the worst possible way, and the toe box is SO short that it cut off my toes in a very uncomfortable way. I have no problem with "toe cleavage" aesthetically--this is purely about misplacement of the edges on the shape of a human foot. Also, these have less than no support or comfort on the bottom. It is a completely flat, unpadded, no-arch sole. I love LE and buy a good deal from them--including shoes from time to time (got GREAT suede boots last year!). These were just a total miss. To be clear, it was not a size issue. I have a narrow-ish foot, and the length front-to-back was fine. It just cut in all the wrong places.

so adorable but
Loved the color of these shoes so pretty. Problem was the toe coverage, they covered only half my toes, looked odd to say the least. I really wanted these to fit because I would have loved to have flat colorful shoes, they would have brightened up so many outfits

Like these shoes a lot
I have the navy blue with white stripes and like them a lot. Comfortable & flattering. My only wish would be that shoes came in a 10.5. size. 10 is too small: 11 to large and slips off foot often.

Thow away shoe
I have only worn these about 4 times, not for very long each time, but the toe is coming unglued. These were definitely overpriced. However, I got a lot of complements on them. They just will not last and you cannot wear very long. The lack of adjustable strap is also a problem.

Better from a distance
I loved the look of these flats online- their sweet silhouette and design. I let several promotional opportunities pass before I finally pulled the trigger and ordered them. I'm almost always a 7.5 but based on the reviews about needing to size down I ordered a size 7. They were way too snug. Additionally, the material has a sheen to it that I wasn't expecting. In my opinion it cheapened the appearance of the shoe. Based on the sizing and the appearance I'm returning them.

PERFECT PRINTED POINTY TOE FLAT
I love the print because I am wearing heels to my Nephew's wedding and this flat compliments the dress and jacket I am wearing. 1. I have a 6 1/2 and 7 size foot; therefore not sure the downsize suggestion would work for me. 2. the shoe should have an elastic ankle strap. 3. this is a fabric based shoe; therefore there is no structure to this shoe. I have tried several foot pads which did not solve the very wobbly fit. I will go the drug store for "lambs wool" which is a fine cotton-feeling fiber which ballerinas wear in their toe shoes. I will let you know if that helps with the fit. BTW, I will not wear the shoe if I am uncomfortable. Lands End has a generous return policy and perhaps I will return this pair?

really cute shoe!
Based on the reviews, I crossed my fingers and ordered a full size smaller than I usually wear. Good move! A perfect fit! The blue floral fabric is beautiful and I look forward to wearing them this summer! The only thing that could improve the shoe otherwise is to make the strap adjustable.

strap needs to be adjustable
Super cute shoe but definitely not what I hoped for. The shoe actually slipped off my foot while driving and so did my foot! Scared the heck out of me. I wish so badly that I could adjust the strap. I don't know who wrote the product description, but it's way off.
