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 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.

Ordered the black flats and while definitely reminiscent of the Chloe style ballet flats, these ones are not leather as described on website. More cushioning than usual in a ballet flat. Disappointed that they are not leather as thereby not as comfortable because there is no "give" to the product. Sizing is true, ballet flat is narrow (narrow feet will love) but ankle strap is a little big around smaller ankles. Overall a stylish shoe but lacks quality.
