Maria Sharapova by Cole Haan 'Air Bacara' Flat
Like walking on a cloud ...
I love Sharapova shoes. I haven't met a pair yet that didn't meet my expectations. I must have every style and color there is. I wait for a sale, and bam! Theses shoes are quite comfortable and stylish. I've gotten so many compliments. Great fit, excellent quality.
I bought these shoes because they are so highly recommended by everybody as being very comfortable but I did not find that to be true. The shoes were not comfy at all and my toes were sore from the tops of the shoes being tight and the bottom of my feet were aching after wearing them for about 5 hours. I work in retail and need a shoe that will not hurt my feet after 8 hours of wear. The leather was very soft and only left a small blister on the back of one of my feet, but the construction did feel poor. If you have sensitive feet I would not get these shoes, especially considering the price! I will be taking mine back.
Super comfortable but fair quality for Cole Haan
I have several friends that have these in different colors and really loved them. I decided to try them in black, but have been very disappointed in them overall. That being said, they are one of the most comfortable ballet flats I have ever worn. I live in a wet climate and although I don't wear them in the rain, the damp concrete on our "dry" days still seems to have ruined them. Within weeks, the blue started cracking off on the bottom and a hole wore in the inside under my ball of my foot. Very disappointing. I have decided to try the Cole Haan Air Monica ballet flat instead. I believe the completely rubber bottom on it might be better for the PNW weather and damp concrete. If you live in a dry climate, I think you might really like the Air Bacara flats.
Love these shoes
I have these shoes in green and now black patent leather and hope to get them in more colors. They are perfect for work or weekend and are so comfortable. I work in DC and NYC and comfortable shoes are important for getting along. A great shoe to own.
