Thank you for your feedback.
I was thrilled to find that they fit just right in the length and width and I just new they were going to work.
There is no rubbing or chafing, and the Nike Air cushioning provides enough comfort and support for my picky feet.
These are not flimsy little shoes that are only comfortable because they give so much that they fall apart.

    Size: 9 B(M) USColor: Peacock Embossed Lizard Verified Purchase
    This is the second pair of Air Bacara flats that I purchased on Amazon. I agree with previous reviewers that they do require some breaking in; however, my second pair, the Peacock Embossed Lizard, fit like a glove right out of the box. If I buy a third pair, I plan to have to break in the elastic on the back. For my first pair, this required about a week of wear to be completely comfortable. They come packaged with tissue in the toes and shoe stretchers, so try stretching them in the box.

    Unlike other reviewers, I had tried these on at a boutique and knew my standard size 9 would fit perfectly. I did not buy a half size up. The padded insole and cushioned sole make them very comfortable for such a delicate shoe. The layout of the sole also give you more traction when walking. I sometimes find myself slipping in the completely flat soles of other flat shoes. My foot is a standard width (B or M), and I found these just wide enough.

    They come packaged in a sturdy box and in individual, small felt shoe bags. I consider them worth the money spent, and I hope to wear them for years. The classic styling and tie detail should be on trend for a long time. Nice job, Maria!

    Size: 7.5 B(M) USColor: Natural Python Verified Purchase
    I was so excited when I ordered this! It looked so comfortable and the color is just perfectly neutral, I could wear it with practically everything! However, when I got it and tried it on, it was quite tight and does not fit comfortably. I usually get 7.5 for all my ballet flats, but with this, I know I should have gotten a size 8. Luckily, I still have my father's old shoe stretcher and I stretched it out for 3 days and now it fits comfortably! Whew!!

    Size: 8.5 C/D USColor: Rock Candy Patent Verified Purchase
    I have been purchasing Cole Haan shoes for many years, especially ones with Nike Air technology. I basically live in Cole Haan or Ferragamo for work. I was excited to see a 25% off code for selected flats and that this Maria Sharapova Collection by Cole Haan Women's Air Bacara Ballet flat was eligible for the discount (bringing the price around $110). I was a little skeptical when I first received the shoes. While packaged in cute individual dust bags, the actual shoes were pretty light weight...the leather wasn't very substantial. But I figured that probably factored into the comfort and the look. And they were very comfy--fit like a glove and very flexible and "easy wearing". I should have trusted my instincts. After ONE wear, the leather on the inside top (where the big toe can touch as you're walking)the leather was broken/worn through (not through the top outside patent layer, but through the inner layer). Let me explain that I have VERY short toenails and I got the correct size (I have worn CH for years, as previously stated, and if I got any larger a size, the shoe would slip off--no, these were the perfect size). I have many pairs of flats and pumps alike. I know it is normal to have SOME wear near the big toe--even when the shoes fit like a glove. After all, your foot does slide a little when you actually bend the foot/shoe to walk. However, this usually takes many months of wear--not a single afternoon. Regardless, the bottom line is that, for me, these shoes are a major disappointment coming from my "go to" shoe brand for stylish, comfortable and reasonably priced work-appropriate shoes. (It seems to me that perhaps the "Maria Sharapova...by Cole Haan" is a less expensive and lower quality product--which is too bad, as it dilutes the main CH brand, in my opinion.Read more ›

    Size: 7 B(M) USColor: Black Nappa Verified Purchase
    These flats are small and fit easily into your work bag if you are a city walker and like to switch between heels and flats. First few wears left me with bad blisters on the back heel, so definitely need some breaking in wears. As an avid heels girl, I am not used to flats but they function well for me! 4*

    Size: 6 B(M) USColor: Peacock Nubuck Verified Purchase
    Prompt delivery. Excellent product; a flat shoe with support padding in it and structural integrity; a cut above most flats. Love it.

    I am in the airport, on my way back from yet another trip in my workhorse Sharapovas, ordering another pair. After many miles of hard work on sidewalks, bricks, and cobblestones, my current pair is dead and I need another pronto. They are comfortable, presentable, easily slip on and off at security, take up no room (or weight) in your suitcase, and hold up to a lot of punishment.

    Size: 9.5 C/D USColor: Rock Candy Patent Verified Purchase
    I wanted so badly to like these shoes. When they were offered for a good price, I ordered my normal size. They were too tight/not long enough, so I returned them and ordered a half size up and in wide. Then they were too big. I had thought with Nike air technology they would be amazing, but they didn't feel that much better (cushioning-wise) than flats from Target or Payless. They were packaged very nicely, though--just not worth the price for me (even if they had fit better, I still don't think the comfort would have been there to validate spending that much on bright pink flats).

    Size: 9.5 B(M) USColor: Sandstone Patent Verified Purchase
    I really like the Cole Haan "Air" shoes. I own one other pair. I have only worn these once so far, but they are cute. The nude color goes with a lot, and they are comfortable. I usually wear a size 9 in other similar shoes, and I have other Cole Haan wedges in a 9, but I had to get these in a 9.5 so my toes were comfortable.
