We’ve taken the ballet flat to new heights with our Peruvian suede Mendez Flat. With flattering, feminine lines and a slight heel, this style is comfortable enough for hours of city walking yet elegant enough for a night of dancing.
- Comfortable yet stylish, this mini wedge can be worn day or night!
- 3/4-inch internal heel
- Lined in soft sheep leather
- Handmade in Peru
Colors: Cranberry, Black, Oak, Mustard

I have slightly wide feet and am usually too big for a 10 and too small for an 11. The size 10 in this shoe fits me nearly perfectly. I added those cushy little heel pads to protect against blisters and it had the added benefit of giving an excellent, tighter fit on my smaller foot. These shoes show a lot of toe cleavage, which might be an issue for some women. I wish these came in something other than suede, as we have a lot of rain where we live, but I've worn them every day since I bought them...new favorites. Hubby knows these are on my permanent wishlist!

These flats are gorgeous. I mean, really seriously gorgeous. You can tell how well made they are and I know I'll have them a long time. Honestly, the leather will probably stretch out too much from regular wear before they would be actually unwearable and need to be replaced. The only reason I'm dinging them a star is because I ordered the Oak color and online it looks like this lovely light, fawn color. But actually it's darker than the picture and more of a medium-shade caramel color. I picked the Oak because I thought it would be light enough to go with black, brown, or gray outfits for work. Since it's darker I think I'll have to resign it to more casual off-work outfits with jeans or wear it with only brown or gray suits. I'm still keeping it because it's a great shoe; just wish the color was a little truer to the photo. Had I know I would have ordered the charcoal or black (my wardrobe is seriously mostly black). But a really great shoe overall.

These flats are just as beautiful in person. I bought the red and wear them all the time. I wear a 7 normally but the Nisolo team let me know that they tend to run half a size small so I got a 7.5. At first they will be small in the width, but this is on purpose--after a few wears, they fit perfectly. I wish I could buy a pair in each color, they're all so pretty and on-trend.

These are comfy and fit like a dream. Definitely review their fit guide, as I actually needed to order up (I usually order a size down for flats!)
Look great with pretty much anything! Wear them to work all the time.

Simple, elegant, comfortable. These shoes are a new wardrobe staple.

These are gorgeous shoes and really well-made. I got an 8 and I probably should have gotten an 8.5. I usually wear an 8 in dress shoes but they seem to run a bit small. But I think my foot is wide around the toes, so this may be why they feel slightly too small. Even so, they are comfortable and feel good on my feet.

These shoes are stunning. They add a pop of color to any outfit, and are so comfortable. The first time I wore them I was traveling for work in Boston and NYC, and walked in both cities nearly all day. They molded to my feet wonderfully and were so comfortable. I received so many compliments on them as well, which is icing on the cake :)

If I could get away with wearing these shoes everyday I would. The quality of the shoe far surpasses any flat I've ever bought. The color is vivid and the fit is literally perfect. The slight heel makes these eye catching, but is so slight that you don't feel like you're wearing heels. The only problem is trying to decide what color to buy next.

great shoes - a bit wide for my feet but i have extremely narrow feet! I think the leather will conform as I wear them . Color is spot on to the picture and size for length runs true. very comfortabl and wtylish!

Because of the rain, I haven't had too many chances to wear these yet, but I'm so looking forward to it! These shoes are perfect for jeans, dresses, skirts, anything.

These shoes are extremely comfortable! I love the style because they work well casually or when I want to wear a lower heel shoe for a little dressier occasion. My daughter has the fun yellow color and I have the black and we both wear them all of the time.

These are the best flats I have purchased in a long time. They feel so well made and sturdy, but are also so comfortable. I love the slight wedge, but they still feel like flats and are comfortable for walking. I bought the red, so pretty. I ordered a half size down, which seems perfect.

I had been looking for a comfortable, but fun and whimsy wedge for a long time and finally found it! They go well with jeans and or a skirt. I recommend the red- perfect pop of color!

These shoes are like absolute butter on your feet and are nothing like the flimsy, low quality black flats that appear to be everywhere these days. The Mendez flats are bonafide grown up shoes and are super sturdy!! I recommend ordering a half size down because this butter-like suede does stretch a bit. They are incredibly comfortable and can be whether you are working hard or hardly working. You will not be disappointed with these shoes.

Hi quality material, comfortable right out of the box , I will wear these to death!

Gave theseto my sister for Christmas. I liked that they were really well made, high quality shoes, and she loved the cranberry color. The bit of heel is a real class detail.

My family got these for me for Christmas and I LOVE them! One of the most comfortable flats I have ever worn. They don't pinch or pull anywhere (a problem I ALWAYS have with flats), and are so versatile that I can wear them to work, out, or to school. Definitely will be buying another color!

I love these! Comfy and I like the slight heel they have - it's more elegant and provides more support than a traditional ballet flat. Nisolo, do you have any favorite treatments for the suede in a rainy Portland? I don't mean to wear them in the rain but every now and then I get caught.
by Cheline – 9th Dec 2012
This shoe belongs in EVERY lady closet! Such a comfortable, well-made staple shoe that looks good with everything from jeans to suits to summer dresses. This black flat with the micro-wedge is probably never going to come off my feet. I am so happy with my latest pair of Nisolos and I'm sure you will be too! Highly highly recommended.

Comfortable, cute, the perfect height for most things I own. The design is great. I have shoe clips that I can change the look with. Your Review...

I purchased the moss flats about a year and a half ago and still wear them all of the time! They go with just about everything, and are perfect for any season. They're super comfortable and I receive constant compliments on them. Already have my eye on my next pair!

These are amazing. Order your true size. They will be a bit tight out of the box, but if you just wear them with socks around the house the leather is so soft it will break in perfectly. These shoes have taken me all over Paris, Barcelona, and New York, walking for 8 hours or more, and I couldn't be happier with them.

I bought the cranberry shoes a few months after owning the charcoal shoes and am happy with both. Professional and comfortable style. Quality leather that forms to your foot after two wears - a bit tight out of the box. The heel has started to show some wear after about 4-5 wears. Note that the red is not so bright as is shown in the website image - it is really more of a cranberry, as the name suggests.
by Erika Elyn – 16th Oct 2012
I'm loving these shoes! I've been able to wear them dressy and casual. The craftsmanship of Mendez Flat is so well done. They are true to size, surprisingly comfortable, and add the perfect POP of color!
