Women's Lila Piped Ballet Shoes
Comfortable and stylish
I bought these shoes in the black with brown trim size 9 for my college age daughter. She says they are comfortable and she likes the way they look. Great sale price.

I love these flats. They are comfortable, supportive and cute. Being a teacher, I am on my feet all day and these, once you break them in, are fantastic. I get lots of compliments and have recommended them to other teachers who want cute but functional flats.

I love these shoes, very comfortable. I would have went a half size bigger, but it only took 2 days to "work in" and they fit like a glove now. I'm glad I got these and would recommend them to anyone.

I love these flats. Love them.
I have long, narrow (my mother would say "pencil") feet with shorter toes and very high arches. I LOVE these flats. I cannot emphasize enough how much I love them. I have a terrible time finding flats that work for me, because they either: a) are long enough but so wide they flop, b) are so short they hurt my toes but they actually stay on my feet, or c) give me blisters because they grip strangely on the heel or foot top. These shoes do none of the above on me. They fit perfectly, and they have enough padding that I don't have to wear arch support inserts for short trips. I've worn them for several hours walking around town, riding my bike, etc. and they gave me no blisters, nor do they show any signs of wear. They also look surprisingly nice - I won't call them dressy exactly, but they're classy and modern looking, not matronly at all. I'm actually buying two more pairs because I'm afraid that LE is going to cancel these because of all the wide-foot people's complaints. Fair enough for them, I guess, but seriously, these flats are a narrow-footed girl's dream.

No way this is for a wide foot
I purchased the 11D or 11 Wide size. There is absolutely no way this is made for a wide foot. At the narrowest arch part it is no more than 2 inches....literally making that part of the shoes half way in my foot. Something went wrong here. It's too bad. I really like the width of the gatas skimmers but wanted something a little cuter and dressier.

Avoid if you have a wide foot!!!!
I got these thinking they would look decent. Wrong! Tons of toe-cleavage. My foot barely fit. If you have a regular foot, get them!!! Forget it if you have a wide foot though. They are very cute. Not to bad on the comfort scale. Just not for me. :(

Lovely and comfortable
I often find flats uncomfortable, but the arch padding in these makes them extremely comfy. Dove gray/coral color combo is on trend and perfect for spring.

recommended for sleeker feet
These are CUTE, classy shoes! I ordered the black suede with chestnut/brown trim. My left foot is wider than my right and the wide part occurs where this shoe rounds the corner. So classy with black tights, but I don't really do them service by altering the total look with my 'fat foot'. No inner support built in, so I have added arch supports. They are also easily 'stretched', as the leather is so soft, so you may need to order 1/2 size smaller?? Boy are they cute though!!

Amazed at the number of negative reviews here, because to me this is a fabulous shoe.
The Lila Piped Ballet shoe is beautifully classic -- a simple design with a lovely silhouette and detailing -- and supremely comfortable, even on my problem feet. It really CAN be worn day or night, for dress or casual (lots of shoes aspire to this on paper, but don't meet that goal in the real world). Best of all, while this shoe looks light and elegant on the foot, it stands up to some pretty hard wear (I'm in mine for days on end and do a lot of walking). Highly recommend!

What a shame
These are such cute shoes! However, they are unbelievably tight and narrow, and I went a size up. Too bad.
