Rated 4 out of 5 by Meme9 Love the look and feel of these shoes
This was my first online purchase of shoes. The picture in the catalog caught my attention because it looked as though the shoe had a higher vamp. Most flats I have tried are cut to low. Also, the slight heel gives just enough lift to add extra style. I choose the olive color and it goes well with everything

Rated 5 out of 5 by CPERN1 Love these Skimmers
I have been looking for this style of shoe for a long time and when I saw them in the J. Jill catalog, I knew I had to get a pair. The fit was perfect and I intend to purchase another pair. Comfortable, stylish and good craftsmanship! Get yourself a pair!

Rated 3 out of 5 by KBM56 Sizing Discrepency
This is my 2nd pair of skimmers. The original black "snake embossed" pair fit like a glove and are wonderful. The next pair is the brown. They are the same size as the original, but they are larger. I wore them on Thanksgiving and felt that my feet were moving around in them. I doubt that I can wear them for an extended period of walking as I have with the black ones. So, now I can't return them because I wore them. Darn! And they aren't cheap. I hope you have better luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Iftheshoefits Classic black shoe CBS eg. lBD
This shoe is classic you can them wear dressy or casual. The leather very soft and I think it will get even softer as it is worn. I have a very high instep and a little wide foot. I am a 8 1/2 . The shoe fits like a glove . The back of the shoe above the heel sits a little low. But I think it adds to the comfort of the shoe. I was surprise to see that the insole is nicely padded. Added bonus ! I can't wait to wear this shoes ! I've only did a test run around the house so far so good!

I have seen these shoes on the J.Jill Website and in the catalogs I get and thought they were simply the perfect pretty shoe for so many outfits. I hesitated to buy because of the price but more importantly, I wear a prosthesis and wondered if they would be the correct heel height/fit for that. Even though I wear a prosthesis, fashion and looking good is still important to me! During the recent sale, I decided to jump in and buy them. I have to say they are the best shoes I have ever purchased. The fit for my prosthesis is the true test. The foot on my prosthesis is a 7 1/2 Med and it absolutely fits this foot/leg like a glove. I can wear it without socks or hose and have not had a rubbing squeak noise out of it yet as I get with most other shoes I buy. The heel height is also perfect. They are attractive and can be dressed up or down. I purchased in the walnut color and plan to purchase in the black color very soon! Please do not stop making these shoes! My favorites forever!! I love to wear this pair with the print, side zip ankle pants, but am sure to find many other options for each season...slimming and a classy look! Thank you J.Jill!

Rated 2 out of 5 by MissKH Too big!
These were too big! I am a size 6 and they do not have smaller sizes. Bummer- I think they would be a great fit if they were a half size smaller! Will return them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kitzkamp Order a size larger than you usually wear!
These are beautiful shoes, simple but elegant. But you must order a size larger than you usually wear. I wear a 10, but had to reorder these in an 11 for a comfortable fit.
