Just got these in the mail a day or two so thought I'd review.
First, the pink is actually called "Celebration Pink" by Seychelles. I bring this up for a reason, they're a lot more metallic in person... but I find that charming and endearing. Updated.
The elastic, however, doesn't match the metallic leather upper as well as it does in the pictures. It's more of a traditional (or maybe more nude) ballet pink, where the metallic leather has a punch and vibrancy to it. See the side picture to get a better idea.
What else? The elastic does it's job wonderfully, fit perfectly (didn't really have to elasticize itself). The sole is rubber and there is a cushiony feeling to these.
I 100% agree with the other reviewer that when I saw these my mind immediately went to the Chloe ballet flats - however, there are some differences - mainly the toe box (also I don't think the pink comes in metallic for the Chloe version) which looks so incredibly similar to a pointe shoe on the Chloe version.
I might still have to buy that pair... to be determined.
The fit for me was a bit roomy in the toe area (not width - as it narrows, but rather length). Not enough that I would size down, but if you were between a 7 and a 7.5, I'd go for the 7...
bottom line though? I love these and might buy them in taupe as well.

I recently got the pink pair for Christmas after wanting them for months. They are beautiful in person! The shoe itself is a gorgeous shimmery rose gold color and the straps are more of a nude but I don't mind; I think it gives it more of a classic ballet look to the shoe anyway. I say the sizing is tricky because the straps are just a little bit big and the shoe is a little long in the toe area but they're wearable. I border between a 5.5 and 6 so I had to order a 6 in these but I would have gotten a 5.5 if it were available. My feet are narrow and my ankles are small so only go down a 1/2 size if you think you'd have the same issue. Overall, they're a beautiful pair and I'm so glad to have them!

I bought these immediately when I saw them, as I had been lusting after the Chloe ballet flats for months (but they are a steep $485), and these are very similar. I'm a big lover of anything ballet-related, so the straps on these are a huge hit for me. I ordered my regular size, 8.5, and found them to be a perfect fit. I am wearing them for the first time today, and they seem like they might rub in a couple of places, but nothing that some breaking-in won't fix. They seem to be good quality, maybe not the very best, but I'm happy with them. I'm seriously thinking of buying them in another color as well.
