Â by hudsonvintage Fits Perfectly
I want to start by saying I have ordinary feet. I wear 9.5 or 10 american and 40 euro sizes. I took the advice of buying one size up to heart, and these fit perfectly. They are easy to put on and take off. They are lined in soft leather. They are well made, the beads are well sewn. Absolutely adorable. No first day pain of any kind. They arrived yesterday and I have been on my feet all day and they are dreamy.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by AlreadyArtists Beautiful vintage-looking shoe
These shoes just arrived yesterday. I bought them in spite of the one review I read because they were just so beautiful I wanted to judge for myself. I don't think they are poorly made at all, especially after what I had read. I'll admit they are a bit stiff, like vintage shoes, but still not what I would call uncomfortable.The button strap doesn't dig in on me either. On the contrary, there seems to be ample room & some give in the strap. You don't unbutton the shoe. The strap has a bit of elastic for you to slip it on. I generally buy shoes for comfort & style & will always opt for more a more expensive shoe that I think will last. I may amend my review after wearing them for a length of time but so far I am thrilled that I grabbed up these super special & precious pair of shoes.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by RachDC really uncomfortable
I tried these on at my local anthro and have to say I was so bummed b/c they are exactly the special looking shoe I go to Anthro for! While these shoes are even more beautiful in person, sadly they are SO uncomfortable! The leather feels really ridged against your feet, the button strap digs, and the part that cups around your arch constricts. They felt like wearing a pair of really old shoes youâ€™d find in a vintage shop.
I think itâ€™s something about the quality of leather and fit of the shoe that made these extremely uncomfortable. I was one of 2 gals in the store trying them on and we both couldn't pin it down why they were so ill fitting, but in general they were just so uncomfortable that you couldn't get over it enough to see how pretty they are. I've purchased shoe before knowing they were snug but just needed to be broken in, but these didn't seem to lend themselves to that train of thought - I actually seem them falling apart as they "break in". They just donâ€™t seem particularly well made and I envision the beads falling off pretty much right away (they include replacement beads in the box - btw).
