Nike puts a new spin on the classic penny loafer with the Women’s Balsa Shoe. But thanks to with its colorful leather and suede upper, and a comfortable, chunky rubber sole, the Balsa is anything but preppy.

Awesome shoes!

    I just got the Team Red/Sail-Filament Green pair, and it's actually more of a darker red than shown in the picture. Also, it's true what everyone else is saying: they run big. I always wear a 10, but I decided to get 9.5 and they fit perfect. Plus, they are light and super comfy. What's not to love?

    love them

      These shoes run big.. I usually wear a 7 and I had to return the original pair I ordered for a 6.5 but now they fit perfectly and I love them.
      I have gotten so many compliments on these shoes and they are super comfy.

      DRIVE ME NUTS!

        These shoes are fit a tiny bit on the big side, the heel slips like CRAZY and I've found that they're IMPOSSIBLE to wear with pants because the second I start walking, they eat up the back hem of my pants and get stuck in the shoe with my foot. Drives me absolutely bananas.

        They are, however, cute with shorts.

        cute :)

          Love these shoes! Only problem was they run a little bit big. I usually wear a 7 1/2 so thats what I ordered but I had to send them back for a half size smaller. Other than that, these shoes are great! Got the purple and yellow ones :D

          love them

            these shoes are so comfy, they fit perfectly. and they arrived very quickly!
            the colors are darker than they look on here, but they are still super cute!

              nice job, nike.

                these shoes are so cute. They are a tiny bit narrow but they've stretched out a tad and now fit perfectly. Definitely true to size length-wise though. I got the monsoon blue/mango ones and they're awesome. the sole is chunky but its made of a light foam material so they're not heavy and clunky.

                and yeah, sadly, you can't put a penny in them.

                no room for a penny

                these shoes run a little narrow but true to size! First thing I noticed was that when you pick them they are very light. Pictured above is the mango and monsoon (denim). I am very pleased with nike products and how fast these shipped!

                When will you get more of the ones shown on the detail views?

                i bought the white ones and i wanna know...

                i bought the white ones and i wanna know how i should clean the white part they got a little dirty... please help

                The Nike 6.0 Balsa in the white colorway you are talking about should be a canvas type material however I do not recommend throwing them in the washing machine. You may want to try a non harsh cleaner (not bleach) to get the dirt out. I would start with a soft brush (toothbrush or something of the same consistency) and maybe just cold water. If that doesn't work try a laundry spot remover like a spray and wash. Something that you can spray locally on the dirt and lightly scrub it out. After that, I'm out of ideas.
