These have been super comfy since I broke them in, but they were too tight on the top of the foot at first. I wear gekk liners instead of socks, and these work best with the ones made for ballet flats so there is no layer of fabric between the shoe and the top of my foot. The leather upper is smooth and comfortable against my foot. The blue color is beautiful and super classy. It goes with most of my wardrobe. The leather is lovely and soft. I really like the shape of the toe box as well. Overall, fantastic shoe with high quality material and construction.
