These are beautiful shoes with great style. I bought them in black, blue and taupe and love all the colors. The blue is a bright blue, not navy---very nice color. The taupe ones are pretty light in color, sort of variegated tan and white, not exactly what I would call taupe, but very pretty. I have a narrow foot and the narrow width of these shoes fits perfectly with no gaps. The shoe looks very nice on the foot. I need a fairly flat shoe due to some balance issues and these shoes have been stable, and look more stylish than most flats. I would definitely buy them again.
