very comfortable shoe, although I probably could have done with a medium width instead of my usual wide. Looks great with summer slacks and capris.
I bought these to replace the same style Teva wedges purchased about 5 years ago. The quality of materials chosen has gone down significantly, and the sizing has totally changed. I purchased the same size I've worn in Teva shoes for many years, but it was definitely too small. These got returned in disappointment.
Perfect for my wedding. Look exactly as pictured and true to size. I wear a size 8 and I ordered a size 8 and they fit perfectly. No arch support, but what can you expect with flats.
After striking out with two other Teva wedge style sandals, I was really hoping these would do the trick. This shoe had two main issues: 1. The leather near the heel strap sagged, as if it needed a wider foot to hold it in place. It looked sloppy on. 2. While the shoe was fairly comfortable, when I would walk in it, the design of the sole somehow caused just the perfect suction amount to happen to my bare foot. That made for some fairly hilarious sounds as I walked. If I were a 7th grade boy, I would probably keep them just for that entertainment value. Bodily functions are funny at that age. But for a grown woman who wants a cute shoe to wear for both casual and professional engagements, it's also kind of important to not sound like there are flatulence issues with every step. Despite walking in them multiple times on carpet, that never improved, so they went back in the box and got shipped back to Zappos. At this point, I'm ready for Teva to hire me to be a design consultant.
Had to return this because my toes were scrunched in the front when I tried them on. Oddly lots of room in the heel around the sole, but no room in the toe box.
It is difficult finding a comfortable shoe that also works for dresses and doesn't look like an orthopedic shoe. Fit was true to size, moderate arch support. I wear a B (medium) width, no gaping on sides like Clarks ballerinas I tried. Not fancy but a good basic.
These look a bit "granny" for me. It felt like they should be comfortable, but not quite. More comfortable than some heels yes, but not enough to keep me from looking for an alternative. For one thing I have a low volume but medium width foot, and the wrap area still had quite a bit of room left, so I had to cinch the straps pretty tight to keep my feet from going forward through the toe. Second, after trying on many Nina shoes I'm convinced the shoe last they use is just quite not the right shape for my foot (the arch just gives me a niggling feeling of 'this not quite right'). I liked the silver reflective suedette color which is a whitish silver on the upper. The "silver luster satin" is actually just a matte gray, and I hated how it looked on my foot. Navy and gold were as expected.
My husband's RA makes it difficult for him to get his shoes off and on alone and also causes his feet to swell, so the Old Friend slip on is the perfect solution for him. He just bought his second pair, and I'm sure will be buying many more.
I have loved Teva for nearly 20 years, and really wanted to love this shoe. Unfortunately, it's extremely uncomfortable. The pair that came to me wasn't uniform, with one strap going over the toe wider on one foot than the other. The heel is very narrow, making this shoe more of a fashion statement than anything you'd want to wear if needing to walk long distances or use all day. The design of the leather on the heel was also interesting, and didn't fit my foot well at all. My foot slipped up and down easily, and made me worry about blisters had I chosen to keep them. These are better left on the shelf to look cute. Look for something else that is truly functional.
This shoe runs small. I am a normal EU 40 and wear a 9.5 M in most shoes. Cute shoe but about a full size too small.
