I was excited to get these in the right size and color after I decided to return my previous pair in the green/grey color. I also went down a half size considering the last pair was slightly too big. As much as I love the style and color, the shoe is still not as great as I was hoping for it to be. The color is definitely what I was expecting, a versatile tan color that will go with possibly anything. (Note: my experience with having seen both pairs is that the color of the actual shoe is a tad darker than appears online.) As far as comfort, for me, I'd rate it a 4. I'm a fan. They aren't too tight or "dig in" anywhere for me, as others have complained. The design of the shoe is what I'm giving 3 stars. The pair I returned were a 7.5 and I knew these would stretch so I opted for a 7. I don't know if the different colors fit differently, but the natural color in a size 7 fit almost the same as the 7.5 in the green/grey. I also read a review that stated the toe box distorts when worn, and I'm finding that this particular pair also does that when I wear them. The green/grey pair didn't, as the leather felt stiffer. I don't mind as much, considering I won't be staring at my feet as I walk/stand. Perhaps it's because the leather is much softer and has more give? I'm still going to keep them, as I'm sure many have experienced, it's quite difficult to find a comfortable pair of cute flats.
