Rated 2 out of 5 by JoyceK I'm sad... REALLY sad.
These shoes look great on. But I've never owned a shoe that causes me so much angst. On the one hand, the length of the shoe is great. I always have to go up a half size in Tory shoes because they tend to run small. So, I did the same with this shoe and ordered an 8.5. I'm glad I did because the length is great and if I had ordered my usual size (7.5 to 8) the shoe would definitely have been too short. That said, the heel area is VERY large and 'baggy' and there's nothing to grip the back of your foot to keep it in place within the shoe. (I do not have narrow heels.) There's not much cushioning in the sole of this shoe either, which is the case with most espadrille style shoes. But because the heel area has no real 'construction', and the sole has NO flex whatsoever, the back of the shoe just keeps flopping off the back of my foot when I try to walk. I wore them just one day, for only a few hours, and nearly cried by the time I could get home and get them off my feet! My feet were killing me! The chunky heel, while very cute, is way too heavy for the rest of the shoe. So you end up trying to keep the shoe on your foot by gripping with your toes as you might do with a clog... but they're not clogs so there's no 'rolling' motion as you walk in them as there would be with a clog. Every step is a 'clunk' as the heel hits the floor. I tried heel grips in the back which helped to keep the shoe in place on my foot somewhat, and also added cushioning in the sole which also helped make them a bit more comfortable, but still the heel just falls off the back of my foot as I walk and nothing I have tried thus far has helped to make these shoes useful or wearable for more than short minutes at a time. It's embarrassing to flop/clunk flop/clunk into a room. For this kind of money I really expected something I could wear and I wish I could send them back, heel grip pads, footbed pads, and all. Terribly disappointed to be stuck with these expensive, cute, but seriously UNwearable, shoes. :-(

Love this shoe! The suede is buttery soft and the shoe fits the moment I put it on without making my feet suffer by having to break the shoe in. Runs true to size and if anything a little loose fitting (not where my foot is coming out though not tight). Highly recommend and hope Tory designs these in other colors. Heel height perfect for a casual shoe that can be worn with many outfits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Misspunky Love these shoes!
These shoes are so comfortable. They can be dressed up or down. They are very classic. The color is a little brighter than a navy and so they go with about any shade of blue.

Love these shoes! Comfy and stylish. Great with skinny jeans. The heel makes them more versatile than traditional espadrilles. Highly recommended.

This shoe is very comfortable and I fell in love with them when I tried them on in the store. Excellent quality and very stylish. I got my normal size for all other Tory shoes (8.5). If you normally size up for your Tory flats, don't size up for these. I'm wearing them today as I type this review!
