These are so cute and comfortable. I've tried other ballet flats (Privo, Born), but none of them have been as well made, cute, and comfortable as these. The red is a little on the berry side of the spectrum, so they're bolder and hard to match with any of my other red accessories. But, you're not supposed to push too much red, anyway, according to the fashion article I once read, so it's ok. It took me several times wearing them to work (I sit down a lot) to get them broken in, but now I can wear them walking downtown at lunch with no worries of blisters or hot spots. I once received a compliment on these shoes from a total stranger in the park. Lastly, I will tell you my go to work shoes are Dansko professional, Birkenstock footprint, and another Patagonia clog. I don't have much tolerance for foot pain. So, when I say these little shoes are comfortable, I mean compared to flip flops, not some lovely high heeled cruelness. They're awesome.

I've got narrow heels and have trouble with ballet flats slipping. These fit my foot like a glove but unfortunately put pressure on my tailor's bunion in a way no other shoe that seemed to fit ever has. A little weird because they didn't feel snug and there aren't any seams in that area, but there you have it. I'm sending these back and I'm going to try the Maha Breathe and the Advocate to see if they work better. I've had very good luck with Patagonia shoes being well-made, comfortable and true to size, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for round 2.

This shoe gives a sophisticated flair to a simple, strong design. The company's use of recycled materials and its mission of environmental responsibility will help those who wear it feel proud of their purchase, while looking great.

I love Patagonia shoes and they are always well made. However, these shoes are so wide they just flop around on your foot. Even adding an orthotic, they were still huge. What a disappointment. You need a full volume foot to be able to wear these. The color, as stated before, is more salmony. Sorry I had to send them back!
