Fell in love with the black version of these shoes as soon as I tried them on in the store. I have muscular, dancer feet and these shoes have great cushioning in the sole and a little bit of give in the toe so there's no pinching or rubbing. I've worn them so much these past few months that I bought two more pairs in various colors. It's a great standard ballet flat that will go with anything.

Adorable & comfortable
Finally, a pair of flats that are not only crazy comfortable but so cute. I've worn them all day to work and they still feel like slippers, what a great find. The elastic adds the dancer's flair and is not at all binding. I ordered the black and white which appear brown in the photo, but they are truly an off black. Wish there were more colors available.

Less pink in person
I got these in the pink version to go with a custom princess costume. (True story.)
I will echo what a previous reviewer said--the straps are totally taupe and not even remotely pink, definitely not in the same hue as the shoe and most certainly not metallic in any way. They are shiny taupe. The photo is misleading in that respect.
The pink of the shoe itself I would classify as more of a coppery rosy gold. The ribbon stripe on the backs falls somewhere between mauve and pinkish-tannish, and is the same color satin as around the top edges of the shoe.
The insides are nice and squashy with padding under the ball of the foot, which I wasn't expecting in a ballet flat. It feels really comfortable.
Size-wise, I normally wear a 9.5 and got a 10 in these. If they came in a 9 3/4, they would be perfect. The straps fit more loosely than snug around my ankles...but then, I have skinnyish ankles, so that could vary from person to person.
I give it a four because these shoes would be cuter if the straps actually matched the shoe. That being said, they are still adorable and I am keeping them.
I wear a 7.5 and ordered a 38. They are perfect. If you normally have difficulty with shoes being tight across the top of your feet, these may be too tight. I would say they are perfect for a normal size foot. And at this price, who could resist??

SO cute but narrow!
I ordered these online, which is not something I typically do with shoes unless I'm familiar with the brand. But these seemed like they couldn't go wrong, I mean they're sandals...right??
When they arrived I could NOT have been happier with the quality. I ordered the "Orange" color which was more of a salmon/coral top with a cobalt blue thong. They were BEAUTIFUL. Unfortunately they came pretty far up on my foot (I think you'd call that your in-step?) and that part was pretty tight. I couldn't get my foot fully into the sandal and therefore they were too short. I don't have a particularly wide foot, especially on that area of my foot, but these just didn't work at all! And I know they are leather, and would probably stretch, but I didn't want to risk it.
I was so sad to send them back! I hope they went to a good home!

I am in love with these sandals. I got the pink pom pom ones and they are so so so cute. I am ordering the chartreuse ones as we speak! The only thing that I would say is that half of the pom poms (and by half I mean like a half of each pom pom not the whole individual pom pom) are coming off, but other than that they are wonderful!
I just got these in the mail today & they are gorgeous! They are extremely comfortable, look amazing on, and the colors are beautiful. I would definitely recommend ordering a half a size smaller as they do run a bit big. I ordered down half a size, and the fit was perfect. Definitely worth every penny!

Beautiful, but not comfy on my ankles
This shoe is stunning! I think it is beautifully made. I am so sad that they are hard for me to walk in and somehow uncomfortable in my heel area. Maybe because I am usually in flip flops or low heels? Still deciding whether to keep or not. So beautiful!!

These boots are so comfortable I don't want to take them off! The color is slightly darker than the picture- they are more tan/beige. The leather is super soft and they are easy to walk in. I wish I bought the other color before they sold out!
Fell in love with these shoes when I saw them on the website, and just received my pair today. They run narrow, but not short; I'm a size 10 (Euro 40/41# and they fit fine! However, I have a very narrow foot #4A - two widths narrower than a standard "narrow" width in shoes#. These fit nicely on my foot with the buckles in the middle hole - in fact, they might be the first pair of strappy sandal/bootie style shoes that haven't gapped on my feet. But they are not too short. Slender-footed ladies of the world, rejoice! Those shoes are for you!
The only thing I don't quite like about the design is that the leather straps aren't anchored into the back of the shoe. On the buckle side, there is elastic #of course, to allow for some flex while you're wearing it#; this isn't a big deal. But on the opposite side, the leather straps don't just anchor into the shoe - this is what surprised me. Instead, they connect to a bit of heavy cotton tape that then anchors into the back of the shoe. This may prove more comfortable #a soft material at a joint#, but I'm not sure it'll prove durable in the long run. We'll see!

Glad I did!!
I am so glad that my birthday was last month and I was able to score the red Tulpen Flats in my local Anthro store and use my 15% b-day discount!!! By the time this sale (49.99) came around, red was no more to be found! The red is not red-red, but a washed out red with a pinkish hue to the color—it really is a beautiful color and shoe. I just received the brown today and I am just as impressed. Sort of a Vintage/Bohemian vibe going on.
I have a thin foot, size 6.5—7, but Klub Nico,in my opinion, sizes shoes differently(?) I ordered the 7 and the size on the shoe is 36. In Euro size that is typically a 5.5-6, so I was happy the red fit and this helped me determine to order the brown in the same size. Don't be taken aback by the Euro sizing...order your true shoe size.
This shoe may be a challenge for gals with a wider foot, but try on before you decide ;) !
There is some stretch on the straps, opposite side of the buckle, and I worry a bit about the stretching...
Definitely a shoe that makes a "point" to stand out. Yes, the tip of the shoe is very pointy, a great fashion statement if you need to make one—so get them before there gone, as I can't imagine at this price they'll be around much longer!

Love at first (and second) sight!
I fell in love with these flats the first time I laid eyes on them, but was not willing to pay the full price. When they went on sale and then were an additional 20% off, I knew it was time to make my move. I ordered the brown ones. I normally wear a size 8 to 8.5 M, but since other reviewers said that these run small and there was no half size, I went with the 9M. They are a perfect fit! They are not too roomy, but still spacious enough in the (pointy) toe area and I can wear them, both, barefoot and with socks or tights. They are neutral enough in color and style to pair with many outfits while still adding a touch of whimsy. Love 'em!
This wedge is so comfortable, the leather is so soft! I got them in black because I have so much brown and they are so classy looking. Great for fall, winter or summer! Can't wait to wear them out.

I ordered 2 pair!
I could not decide if I should order brown or black so bought both and so happy. These boots are very comfortable and are especially great for transition seasons. So happy with my purchase.

Love and ADORE
I bought these in pink, just because it was a different color for me, and really these are amazing. I just put them on and walked around the house in them, so for the long hall I am not sure how they will do, but they feel fantastic. Great heel height, and comfy. I have WIDE feet, and they are great, maybe even a tad big. The "leather" is not stiff at all, though the zipper at the heel sticks a bit, but maybe with more use it will loosen up.....I am actually going to purchase in brown because that is how great they are.....
These were TTS for me -8 with troublesome narrow heel and high arch - so it's not easy for me to find a loafer that fits well as these do. The toe box has plenty of room, important because I doubt that these will stretch out with wear ; My toes are average width and turn up a bit so this aspect is important to me. These shoes were comfy right out of the box. The black is quite sparkly and has a unique, funky look. These are fun loafers that make an interesting addition to casual clothes like skinny pants, jeans, shorts or some Boho skirts. Pairing them with anything dressy is just too much since the loafer style calls for casual. I love wearing them with stressed jeans and a tuxedo style blazer or modern styled cardigan and a plain white blouse. It has been fun to devise oxymoronic outfits with these loafers.
I haven't seen them in silver but am guessing that they are especially sparkly and showy. If you enjoy the challenge of putting together unlikely but stylish outfits, these are for you. I'm ordering them in silver although I can't yet imagine how they'll work in my wardrobe. But they are well made, an easy fit and the price is right....can't resist.

Cute but glitzier than photo
These are a really cute smoking loafer, and super comfortable. I was expecting more of a cream color rather than the shiny gold, so I'm returning because I don't need another gold shoe. They are definitely to be worn as the standout piece with plainer clothing. Otherwise would be over the top. Plus, it's a busy pattern. Wish I could justify keeping!

I ordered these shoes online and they are even more beautiful in person. Definitely a statement piece, great for fall! The pictures are accurate in color and design. They are made by Seychelles so the quality is excellent. They are extremely comfortable and I look forward to wearing them in the city.However, they do run big. I have another pair of shoes by this brand and they fit TTS but my foot slipped out of the 7 1/2 in these. I am a very consistent size 7 1/2 but will be exchanging these for a size 7 (maybe even a 6 1/2). I would encourage you to size down at least 1/2 a size.
Highly recommend this product!
I love Jeffrey Campbell shoes, and have several pair, including some lace-up sandals similar to these. I first saw these on a model for a different product on the website, and actually wrote to Anthro trying to find them. When they finally arrived, I ordered them immediately. I was not disappointed. I wear size 5.5 - 6, got the 6 and they fit perfectly. They are actually more comfortable than the lace-up version, and every single strap adjusts to you can customize the fit. Once you have them the way you want them, you just use the zipper to put them on. The heel provides a nice height without being uncomfortable, and the suede is super soft. My only disappointment was that the color is more of a true light gray than the photo - I thought it would be taupe. But it's not a big deal - I still love them. I'd definitely recommend getting them before they're gone!

Amazing and Unique Shoes
I love Jeffrey Campbell shoes, so far all the shoes that I have purchased have had really good arch support, and these are no different. I normally wear a 6 or 6.5, but had to go to a size 7 in these. I absolutely love them!! Living in Texas I plan on wearing them a lot this fall and winter.

Better in Person
I'm not one for clunky heels but these were returned to the store and I tried them on and of course they felt and looked amazing. I got the grey and am seriously considering getting the black also.Looks great with the fringe bottom sweater skirt. I am a true size 9 and got these in 8.5 and they fit perfectly
