Rated 1 out of 5 by daestarr Too small, no arch support
Pros: These flats are gorgeous. I got them in grey and the color was beautiful and went with a lot of stuff in my closet. The leather seemed sturdy as well.
Cons: These are really tight. I own Jcrew Cece's which some people told me run small but these took the cake. The leather around the heel and on top of my toes left red indents on my feet after a 20 minutes slow paced walk on level paved concrete. Not to be deterred (and having feet that have put up with a little too much abuse), I tried putting thin bandaids on and wore them to work on a day that I knew I wouldn't have to walk around much. Bad idea. These were extremely painful to have on and by the end of the day the skin on the back of my pinky toes were peeling off. Also, the sole of the shoe curves out so there is no support for the arch.
My feet are usually slightly small for a size 6 (to give an idea, Jcrew Cece flats fit fine, Jcrew Kiki flats are little loose).

Shoes were so cute, the leather was so soft and had a great color. I usually we a size 8 however I sent these back for 8 1/2, they do run small.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jcrewaddict Most uncomfortable ballet flats ever
I purchased these in blue with the white ties, adorable style, but I couldn't keep them on my feet for more than a minute, incredibly uncomfortable, cannot imagine walking in these, or even sitting! They are going back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DRTV Cute Shoes, Terrible Fit
Purchased the Emma Bow Flats in my usual size 6, and I've found the fit to be very small, particularly in the toe box area. I had to use a shoe stretcher to make them fit, but they still feel uncomfortable. Overall, these shoes are very stiff, because the leather is not very soft or flexible.
I have purchased many different shoes from J Crew, and these are by far the worst when it comes to overall fit and comfort. The Cece flats from last year were a much better fit.

Love the color and shape of these shoes. Perfect for dressing up a cute sundress or on the weekends with some jeans or crops. The back of the shoe rubs a bit around my heel but in my experience with J.Crew shoes it just takes a few wears to break them in and then they're very comfortable.
