I have been buying FS/NY for years...and this model many times. This shoe was very tight...maybe a bad "batch".

I originally ordered a size 8 which I slipped out of (I'm usually between an 8 and 8 1/2) so I exchanged these for size 7.5 and they fit perfect! I wore them around the house for a few hours and then all over Europe while on vacation :D! No blisters or sore heel, these are very comfortable! These ballerinas are however pricey or I would get these in several colors. For this price I really expect a leather sole and not a rubber sole but oh well, can't win them all. The natural leather color is very nice, a neutral color which goes well with any outfit. Overall, I don't regret this purchase and highly recommend these, despite the price point!

these shoes are super cute! i think they'd be great for someone with short, slim toes: the toebox is tiny.

Bought these in taupe, and they are gorgeous and not too high for work. Loved them so also bought the lighter Ibiza printed leather but there is something really wrong with the second pair of shoes. First of all, they are very loose and too big, despite being the same size I ordered for the first pair. Also, the vamp of the shoe is lower than the plastic decorative plaque on the front of the shoe in this pair. So weird because the hard plastic is what is touching the top of your foot, not the leather or shoe itself. Definitely had to send back. Appears there is something amiss with the Ibiza, but LOVED the taupe pair. So strange. Too bad!

I got the sand color; the black sole on such a light show is odd but I actually like the look it sort of grounds the shoe and keeps it from looking like a slipper. These are very sleek and even elegant looking for what they are - none of the slumps look many typical ballet flats can have, very slim to the foot. The footbed isn't especially padded but it's substantial enough to be quite comfortable. My feet are more on the narrow side (although not enough to need an A width) and I bought my normal size (10). They were slightly short at the heel until I wore them a few hours and now are perfect. Because they stretch I am not sure sizing up is good advice - maybe if your feet are wider.

Although these shoes are quality material and beautiful, they have a design flaw which prevented me from walking 20 feet without the straps coming off my heel. I would have to repeatedly stop and pull the straps back up . As much as I wanted to love these very stylish shoes, I have to be able to stay in the shoe to walk. They get a five-star for quality and aesthetics; unfortunately they do not stay on.

Run small. Poor construction. Not worth the [price

I loved the color of these shoes, and the leather is very soft. I ordered both a 9.5 and a 10, as I am usually between these sizes in most brands. Both were too big in this shoe: significantly too wide and slightly too long. I don't feel confident ordering a 9, as I'm guessing that even the 9 would be too roomy. If you need a slightly wider than M, these might work! Very cute.

Ouch! I love the look of these shoes, but man, are they too small. I followed the advice of one reviewer, who reported that the staff of the flagship store suggested ordering in your regular size even if they feel a bit small at first. I could barely get my feet in these. Sending back and ordering a bigger size.

I bought this French Sole Talisman in size 11 in the light blue color called "jeans." It definitely was a full size smaller than a similar model I also purchased to try that is the same exact design but with a slightly higher heel (the Royal). I so wanted to keep these, but given the tightness I just can't.

Heel strap is not very secure. Loose so the shoe seems to slip off. The foot bed seems to be true to size.

Beautiful shoes, but too small. Other reviews said to buy your normal size and they would stretch after a few days... this did not work for me, and now I am stuck with shoes that are too small and can't be returned because I wore them.

Love the shoe. Dresses up everything and the natural goes with everything. Like it so much I plan to order it in black.

For $130 I shouldn't have to wear these for several days to stretch them to fit me. I had a hard time justifying 130 for a ballet flat in the first place. These are the most uncomfortable shoes at any price I've ever bought. Adorable but they dig into the top of my foot, the back of my heel and my toes are wedged at the tip. I am a 7 1/2 or 8 and I bought the 8. Waste of money, Would return them if I could but like one reviewer said I wear them for a few days and stuck heel pads in them and still painful.
