Women's Vivian Venetian Flat Shoes
Pretty but painful
I am surprised to see the shoes were still being sold. I bought my silver pair over six months ago, and was looking forward to having these dressy flats because I rarely wear heals. I can wear them about 15 minutes and they start rubbing painfully on my little toes. And they are loose so why is that happening?! There is a weird shape to the arch support. A real disappointment. I didn't bother to return them because I live overseas.

Look great but soles too thin
I really like the look of these shoes, and they're fine for wearing around the office. However, the soles are *so* thin you feel every little lump and bump of any surface you walk on. I've given up on wearing them outside.There is next to no support inside, and I found my pair to run quite wide. These just need to be made a bit sturdier in my opinion.

Cute shoes with no arch support.
I really liked the looks of these flats. And, was especially excited to see what looked like some arch support. If this is what you are looking for, look somewhere else. There is virtually no support whatsoever, so I had to return the two pairs I purchased.

Was needing a nice brown dressy shoe
Haven't had an opportunity to wear them, but will do so next fall.

Dress Up or Down Versatility
I took a chance with this shoe in red and am surprised how much I like it. It really has a different look with a touch of shine and an elegant style. It can be dressed up or down, and isn't a color and style you see often on the street. I am very pleased with a different choice in my closet. Fit is okay for a slightly wide foot.

Wanted to keep them, but the insole hurt my foot.
I ordered these in the teal color. The color isn't as deep/rich as it appeared online, but the shoes were really cute. Unfortunately, I sent them back. The shoe itself fit well, but the padded insole inside of the shoe was narrow, causing the padding to dig into the bottom of my foot. The shoes were just too uncomfortable to wear all day, so I returned them.

Purchased these in size 8 1/2. Too loose on my foot. I normally wear an 8 or 8 1/2. My daughter definitely wears an 8 1/2 and she thought they were loose as well. But she loved the look so much that we are keeping them for her.

cute flats and great colors
I ordered 2 pairs because I like the colors of these flats. I have a narrow foot and the b width fit me well. I applied water repellent spray because I hate my toes to get soggy if out in damp grass. The teal is a vibrant color yet the olive is almost a gray/taupe - not really olive IMO.

Added cushioned insole
I love the color of these and bought them to wear in our teashop, which is a lot of running. I wanted something simple. I am not long hours on my feet, maybe 4 max. I added a padded insole as our floors are tile and quite hard and that helped. They sit much lower across the top of the foot than I'd like. They are a bit slippery on our tile floors as the sole doesn't have grip until they're broken in. But they are a great "slipper" of sorts.

I bought these shoes in two different colors because I liked the look, but I regret my purchase. The shoes are stiff and uncomfortable. I exchanged them for a 1/2 size larger but that did not help. My feet were blistered in several places every time I wore these. The leather sockliner separated after wearing just a few times. Not the quality I would expect from Lands' End.
