Do not size up!
Despite the suggestion that people size up, my experience was that this information is incorrect. I am almost always a European size 38 (usually 7.5/8 US) I ordered the 39 as suggested and they were definitely too big. Like a lot. Aside from that, the styling is very cute, but as other reviews have said, the sole is quite thin and not a lot of support. Suspect you'd feel every rock you walk on. Probably more for kicking around in, not so much a day of walking/shopping/sight-seeing.

Lovely!
Love these shoes! I got them in white, and foresee alot of wrapping them around towels and bleaching them in the washer all throughout summer. Comfy from the start, and have walked all over in them. They can be rather warm during hot days, but I just wash them every now and then and it's all good. These will be worn to shreds this summer!

Excellent
Great Shoes, I have not stopped wearing them since the purchase. I got them (Israel) within 3 days. Highly recommended!

Average
I'm not sure what all the fuss is about in regards to these shoes. I have been wanting Bensimon sneakers for years and finally bought a pair in white in my usual size 37. They fit true to size and are reasonably comfortable with a semi-supportive sole. After being used to ballet flats, these shoes in comparison look quite ugly and I'm not sure how much wear I will get out of them.

Meh...
Bought these for my honeymoon in France instead of a replacement pair of converse. I wish I'd gone for the converse instead. Nothing to squeal about. They're sort of "mom-ish" looking in white, and the way that the heel of the shoe bends in is pretty obnoxious, but not uncomfortable.

good looking kicks
I actually got these shoes to replace a pair that had worn out. Very cool and relaxed looking. They are comfortable, but don't have a lot of cushioning - just to warn you. I actually bought insoles to put in my old pair if I knew I was going to walk a lot. What I do like about them is that they are easy to slip on and off, and have an effortless look. I have gotten many compliments on them. Also, they run small. I am a size 10 and have to wear the 41.

Super Sneakers
This is my second pair of Bensimon sneakers and I just can't get enough. They are a simple and stylish casual sneaker, easy fit but true to size for me. I wear a 8.5 in Australian sizing or 9US, so the 40 in this sneaker is good. The only thing to keep in mind is they are not performance shoes and have no inner support, so don't try to walk miles or climb mountains in them or you will end up with very sore arches!

I love these shoes!!
These are incredible shoes. I got the navy blue as my second pair, because I wore through the first pair wearing them all spring, summer and fall of last year. They are comfortable, versatile and have a little bit of a retro feel. I'd recommend going a half size down. I'm usually a 7 1/2, and the 7 equivalent (whatever # it is) fits me perfectly.

Bensimon Elastique Sneakers
I looooove these shoes! I first found these in Paris and was extremely thrilled to find out ShopBop carries Bensimon. I currently own 6 pairs in different colors and they are extremely comfortable and you can walk miles in these and not notice it.

Love these shoes!
Love these shoes. My first pair lasted a few years and I wore them completely out. I was so happy to get my new pair!

tennis flats
I think I reviewed these before. I do love the way they look! and have numerous pairs in all sorts of colours. the only thing that is annoying is complete lack of support in these shoes. When I wear them all day my feet hurt. I guess you could put shoe inserts in them, if you can be bothered.

Great Casual Shoe
These are great for casual wear when you don't want to wear runners. I am usually a 38, but sized up to a 39 after reading a couple of reviews. However, I had to return them and swap them for the 38, which are perfect.

I like wearing Bensimon Tennis in summer, I like to collect all the different colours , I hope shopbop can have more colours. True to size but if you are in half size then purchase one size up !
