Isaac Mizrahi Live! Faux Snakeskin Almond Toe Ballet Flats
Almond Toe is the Way To Go!
I wish more shoes had this design, allowing our toes actual SPACE to breathe. The shoe follows the natural shape of your foot and the toe box is not so small that it scratches the knuckles on your toes. Perfect. Isaac knows women quite well. The coral is darling and will go with shades of pink, khaki, brown, orange and the black/tan is fabulous for any greys, blacks, browns, tans, and all year round. The fit is comfy on the inside and there is enough of a heel to give at least the feeling of walking in a shoe instead of on a piece of cardboard. Most flats have no heel. Would also like these with just a little more heel to them - not a high heel but maybe 1/2 more of what is there added to it. Wish the blue/green wasn't sold out as I missed out and no waitlist. Come on Isaac and give us more of these classics!!!!
Love these shoes. Perfect fit. I get so many comments & complements!
I will buy more
I wear a wide shoe and it is difficult for me to find fashionable shoes that fit. I now have 3 pair of Isaac's shoes and will buy all I can get. They are also very comfortable.
I have had these shoes for a couple of months and I love them. They are comfortable (9 1/2 W) and I was skeptical about buying a show that I couldnt try on but so glad I did. The shoes have a light padding on the inside which makes for a comfortable fit and a slight heel which I like so that I dont feel like I'm walking on the floor which I sometimes feel like in just a normal ballet flat type show. I bought the pink/orange and I actually have them on today with black slacks and Isaac's Chartreuse colored long sleeve t shirt.
I bought these last Fall in the orange and they are cute, but sooooo uncomfortable that my feet hurt within the 1st 1/2 hr. of wearing them. It says true fit but I bought the 6 M and they were not a true fit.
Sassy. . . . . . .but
These shoes are sassy. The problem is that the wide isn't - at least not for my foot. Workmanship fine, color cute as can be, fit - therein lies the problem. They are just not wide enough at the boadest part of my foot (where a bunion resides) and the cut of the shoe rests right on the bunion. Otherwise an overall acceptable shoe.
Simply the Best
Little story... I was at the hairdresser's, reading a magazine, waiting for my color to process when a stylist walks by and tells me she LOVES my shoes (orange and pink). Three times she comes by and tells me how crazy she is for my shoes. Finally she asks me where I got them. The first thing out of my mouth was Isaac Mizrahi. Her response, "I should have known. You have good taste." These shoes are a conversation piece. Everywere I go, everyone loves them. They go with everything, from shorts to jeans to short skirts.. Oh, I almost forgot to say, they fit like a glove and are sooo comfortable. I don't even feel like I have them on. I absolutely adore Isaac's line whether it be shoes, boots, handbags, jackets, blouses, his gorgeous cardigans, cashmere sweaters, scarfs; I could go on and on. How privilaged we are to enjoy this genius's designs via QVC!!
Perfect Right Out of the Box
I get my mail at work (I work for PO) and these were waiting on my desk when I arrived at work. I got the orange/pink combo and by chance it matched what I had on - so on they went! I got the 9W. I wear that or a 9 1/2 medium depending on the shoe. It fit like a dream. Wore them all day with no problem and many compliments. Will go with slacks, skirts, jeans - pretty much everything! If I didn't already have a loafer in a similar black/grey combo I'd get them too. Good job Issac!
finally a flat with pizzazz!
I love these shoes! My normal size has always been 8 M, lately I've been getting 8 w when offered. Ordered an 8 W in these and although there is a bit of room, when i add my 'gellin' insoles, they are fine. The cushy insole is a plus as well. I like the small heel as I don't feel like I'm standing in a hole as with so many really flat shoes. The snake print is so stinkin' cute in the blue/green that I may order another color. They look good with shorter skirts, ankle pants and jeans. Last weekend I wore them for the first time when I ran to the warehouse store. Had on jeans and a tee shirt - threw on a scarf, jacket and these shoes and the 20 something cashier said she loved my outfit! Not bad for this over 50 lady. Simple design but with pizzazz - the perfect flat.
Cute but back they went
I received the shoes and thought OMG so cute. BUT they were so terribly uncomfortable. And made so poorly like they were constructed with card board. I was very disappointed. A very poor product.
Fabulous Print/ Color
I never buy two of the same! But, these shoes were awesome colors and print so I got the coral and blue. I also never buy non-leather but they are fairly comfortable. Nicely padded. I got the wide in 8. Thought they were a tad short but do-able. Many compliments at work. They go with alot of my wardrobe colors. Way to go Isaac! QVC should give away a day with Issac. What MAJOR fun would that be! I'd be first in line for a spot.
My new favorite shoes!!
I love these flats! I wear them with my skinny jeans and they are perfect. I am between and 8 and 8 1/2, depending on the shoe, and I ordered an 8 1/2 in these. They are so comfortable. They have a little extra room, but I prefer that with flats... I don't have to worry about blisters. These are my first pair of Isaac Mizrahi shoes, but I will definitelly be going back for more.
