Rated 5 out of 5 by biscaylady Keep the bowman flat in inventory!
Have three pairs and love these shoes. Stylish and comfortable and great colors. Please keep offering this shoe! It appears that they are almost sold out. Don't let that happen, as these are a winning style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PuppyChow Beautiful and comfortable, but runs a little small
I already own the alpine blue. Just checking if I can take advantage at the sales and purchase another pair. I usually wear 7.5, but on this particular shoe, size 8 is the right choice. Very beautiful and comfortable right out of box. I will definitely buy another pair if there are more colors. LLB is the Best!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChessieFan Best shoes for work and play!
Love, love, LOVE these shoes! Comfortable right out of the box after following earlier reviews to order up a half-size. I am a school principal who walks quite a few steps every day and need a professional style with comfort. These fit the bill perfectly! I hope Bean will offer Bowman flats every season in smooth leather, patent and suede versions. I will buy every style and color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy25y Even prettier in person!
The Alpine blue is a beautiful, rich color. I took the advice of other reviewers and bought a size 9 instead of my usual 8 1/2. They fit perfectly. I love the low-cut front. (For those who have bunions, you might want to take this into consideration.) I decided to keep them anyway. These shoes are a winner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by anonreview123 great quality
I usually wear an ll bean 8 1/2, but went up a half size after reading other reviews. The size 9 fit perfectly. The alpine blue color was a steal at $55.99! These shoes are classy and high quality and the color is vibrant! Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stege Great FLATS!
I am so happy that I purchased these shoes last winter! I am a teacher, so I like to have shoes that match almost every winter outfit that I own. They can either be dressed up or down, and are so comfortable to wear! I wore them to work often, and they were very flattering.
The greatest part is that they don't get dirty and show wear. I am between an 81/2 and a 9, so I ordered up. I am very pleased!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Preservationist Yes, half a size small
This is my sixth pair of Bowman flats. I'm not shoe crazy. Quite the opposite, I would prefer fewer, better pairs. This is the only pair of flat shoes I can wear. With an elegant line, they do not make my legs look like stumps.
The black leather shoes run a half size smaller and feel narrower than the suede shoes. My feet are wide, and I can wear the half size larger. As others have noted, the reason for four stars rather than five is that the leather shoes are unexpectedly smaller than the suede.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ALittleBeanie The Black Flat Does Not Have A Black Heel
I ordered the Bowman flat in black leather and was very excited to receive it. Unfortunately, the heel was the color of cherry wood. It was not black. I like a black heel with a black shoe. I did not try on the shoe - I just returned it. Very disappointed. I thought that I must have made a mistake when I ordered it and then I looked at the web page again and, to me, it looks like a black heel on screen. I think that the cherry colored heel cheapens the look of the shoe - and the shoe is not cheap. The black leather part of the shoe did look very nice.
