I didn't experience the problems that others mentioned regarding cheaply made material or flaws in the shoe. My only issue was the sizing! I usually wear a 9 so I ordered up after reading reviews and got a 10 and it feels like I'm wearing an 8! The only way I can wear them is with little footie nylons. I didn't send them back because they honestly are an adorably cute shoe and they don't have any bigger sizes beyond a 10.

I like the style, colors and the price. However, I am a size 6.5Med. I ordered the size 7, as advised by the site because they run small. As I see it, the shoes are a 7B- which stands for narrow in the front part of the shoes. The shoes themselves only have a size #. They don't differentiate between the B (narrow ), M (medium )or the W (wide ). Like I said before, i love the shoes but they are too narrow in the front. I don't use them all the time but, when I do I wear pads on the sides of my feet in the front of the shoes. With that said " If you don't have narrow feet it's not the shoe for you. On the other hand - you can have the front of the shoes widened a little by a shoemaker.
These were the perfect pair in the color I wanted. I have been searching for months a shoe that is nude but not peachy, pink or off white. These were perfect! Only sad part was that they are snug. Will be ordering a half size up to put some heel protectors in the back. They will cause blisters if you don't get a half size up or use a heel pad. After adding in the heel pad these felt really nice, they're tight right now but I haven't wore them too much yet. So hoping they may loosen up. Hoping to buy the black ones.
I bought these to wear in a wedding. It is hard to find decent flats in a nude color. These will work just fine. I originally went by the sizing guide and bought a 6 (I usually wear a 6.5). The 6 will have to be returned. They were a bit too snug. Just ordered a 6.5 and they fit just right! I do also have wide feet and I feel rather comfy in these. I wish the toe part came up the foot a bit more. I don't like looking at "toe cleavage", but that's just me. Overall, I'm keeping them.
I gave this shoe 4 stars even though they are somewhat tight. I would say its a normal width, as I have a narrow foot, so whereas the length was a tad too short the width worked out for me. It's a great looking shoe that can be worn as dress up or casual, depending on what you wear. As to how long I can wear them (although a bit small(I will be able to say with better certainty wether I can wear them all day after I come back from my vacation as I brought them for a cruise. The arch support seems good, especially for a ballet type shoe. I like the shoe enough to re=purchase in a 1/2 size bigger if it doesn't stretch after I wear them for awhile.
These flats are beautiful! I got the gold snake and they are just so dang cute! You can dress them up for work or a date or dress them down and be more casual. They fit true to size. Take a little breaking in, I've been wearing band aids where they rub in the back. Definitely great quality for the price!
Cannot say enough about these shoes! I have now ordered multiple pairs of shoes from Riverberry and they are consistent in quality and are fantastic shoes. I would not recommend to anyone with wider feet, these definitely are made for narrow/slender feet. I sometimes have to order a half size up to an 8 for heels and boots however these are the perfect fit at a 7.5. They do not pinch or rub on any portion of your feet and are not stiff or difficult to walk in. This brand also includes a gel shoe insert for the ball of your foot with every pair of shoes, such a great extra! Would highly recommend these shoes, i use mine daily for work and they are professional and cute. The matte black is the perfect every day office shoe in the summer.
I am a size 91/2. I agonised before buying a size ten based on the comments and reviews. The 10 fits like 91/2. I am relieved! Having said that, this is the most comfortable pair of flats I have ever won! I don't wear flats much because I have a very high arch and my feet are narrow which means that I cannot find a perfectly comfortable pair of ballet shoes that looks good too. I now have found it and I have ordered another. The just make my feet look so pretty. The material is very soft and pliable, does not rub the skin, just moves with the feet. Wonderful. 9 people found this helpful
These shoes are sized appropriately. They’re cute, comfortable, and they have a slim layer of almost TPE type nonslip material on the bottom so clumsy ladies like me won’t bust our butts on solid surface floors. I find this information important because I’ve purchased similar styles of shoes that, unbeknownst to me, came with this slick plastic-ish material on the bottom. So I had to do that awkwardly slow shuffle move in order to remain upright while walking on basically any non-carpeted floor that wasn’t textured. Doesn’t matter how cute your shoes are, it’s almost impossible to look all classy and whatnot while wearing shoes that feel like someone applied a layer of grease or attached banana peels on the bottom.
