French for an elegantly cut shoe in which the vamp of the shoe is cut away very close to the toe box, and the sides cut away, revealing the arch of the foot.

Hey Fab, if the shoe has only the inside side cut away from the shoe is it a half d'Orsay or does it have another name? I have a pair like I described by Chinese Laundry for cooler weather and I love love love them, so sexy!

This style makes my feet look fat. They're flat and big. I love the look of these but they are not for me.

I looooooove this style :) My heel comes out sometimes can get these little rubber crescent shaped things that fit behind your heel to kinda grip them into the shoe. They work pretty well.

The style is quite difficult to walk in. My feet always flop out of the heel part.
