Women's Irina Ballet Flat
Give them a week.
At first, I thought I had made a mistake buying these shoes. After breaking them in for a week, I'm glad I was patient. These shoes are very comfortable now. They also appear to be good quality and have lasted a lot longer than other shoes I have bought at Payless.

Servers - Avoid this shoe.
I actually had a mildly pleasant experience with the last pair of emergency work shoes I bought at Payless, so when those shoes wore down, I decided to give it another go.
I always wait until midday or later to shop for shoes, to give my feel an opportunity to swell. When I put these on in-store (with the socks provided as well as my own thicker socks), they felt just fine. I walked around, jumped, and did what I normally do when shopping for work shoes since I wear them so often.
I got to work that same night and within the hour, I felt like the shoe had shrunk around my foot. It tore up the back of my left foot (it's a bit bigger) and even with great amounts of effort (ice, blow dryer, newspaper), short of a cobbler these shoes just won't fit.
And that strap? Ugh. Don't get me started. I'm probably going to cut them off, if I keep them at all.
It was such a waste of money and I have never had such buyer's remorse. It's kind of terrible that they won't take back slightly worn shoes. I have literally never hated shoes so much in my life.

Awesome Shoes To Walk On Cement Streets
When I move to New York I could no longer wear high heels on cement floors so I have to look for flat shoes that could hold like sneakers and feel comfortable like sneakers but not look like them these were the only shoes that I could find that met the demands I was looking for not only are they comfortable but you can walk with them for long periods of time on cement floors and they're stylish enough to wear with dresses or nice clothes to an event ..you don't have to worry about changing shoes so that you can be comfortable..these shoes will hold up and they are slip resistant and they come in half sizes and wide with sizes to that you can order from online if they are not available in the store. Please always have these in stock I have just bought my third and fourth. My first and second pair lasted over 2 to 3 years and I would switch them up from time to time so I can wear them out evenly I can definitely say these shoes are really comfortable and and practical for everyday use. I will continue to buy them as long as you have them available.

I purchased these shoes over a year ago. I am just now having to replace them because the sloe has worn down. The first week they fit a bit tight but once I broke them in I could work a 15 hour shift without my feet bothering me at all.

I am a teacher, and am on my feet all day. I purchased these in an attempt to have comfortable work shoes for being on my feet all day. I wore these for just one day, and I got blisters on both my heels and my pinkie toe. I have bunions, so I got the wide ones, but they still rubbed, and they were so rigid they would not bend to conform to the foot, and were very uncomfortable - I did not wear them again.

Worst shoes I have ever bought - STAY AWAY
These are the worst shoes I have ever bought- The strap on top is in a horrible position and everyone I know that has these from work eventually cut the strap off..
But other than the strap, they are the most uncomfortable shoes for walking , and especially for running around as a server.
My feet have never hurt worse from a pair of shoes, and I will be buying different shoes today.
