Fantastic combination of comfort and style! The Ahnu Maia hugs your foot with super-soft leather straps and a cushy footbed that seem to mold around and provide a custom fit. I usually wear a 9.5 or 10, so based on previous reviews I ordered the 9.5. I can understand how this shoe might not fit everyone - and since the straps are not adjustable, it will be highly dependent on the shape of your foot. I found them to be a little long in the toe area, even though I have fairly long toes - but the arch and metatarsal support hit me in just the right places so I was very happy with the fit. The straps felt a little snug at first, but as soon as my feet got settled in and I took a few steps, it was like walking barefoot - only better! I got the dark charcoal color and I think it will go with pretty much everything. The sole is shocking pink, just for fun. The leather uppers are extremely soft, as are the microsuede fabric linings. This is a great transitional sandal for spring and fall, as it's not quite so "bare" as some, while still showing off a beautiful pedi and allowing my feet to breathe. This is my first pair of Ahnu shoes, and I will definitely look at more.

This is my 2nd Maia review. I'm giving 1 star "overall" to counterbalance my previous 5 star review. Mine is the one that starts, "Love. Super comfy and secure-feeling. A little bit tricky to size though..." This shoe smells. After a week of wear -- light commuting, sitting still at work all day -- these shoes smelled so strongly I was embarrassed to wear them indoors. I could smell them when I flexed my foot, so air hit the sole. I continued to wear them on errands for a few months, but it's not worth it. I hate tossing out shoes, but I'm going to have to do it. Bummer.

I loved these shoes, they do seem to run a little big and I had to return them for a size smaller than I usually wear but they are quite possibly the most comfortable sandal I've ever worn. However, I've worn them for just three days (in an indoor, air-conditioned conference center) and they smell terrible. I don't usually have smelly feet but something about the suede insole must cause a reaction or something. I'm really sad, because they're beautiful and incredibly comfy but today I was embarrassed to find a sourness wafting from my feet - yuck! Zappos legendary customer service has been most helpful but regretfully I'd not recommend these

Really like the look of this sandal. The only fault I found is that the straps are not real leather, therefore no stretching, which I would have liked for the sake of comfort and making them feel more like "my own." They start out comfortable but by day's end the straps become tight-feeling, with no give. For the price I would have liked an all-leather sandal.

Thinking on it, there is no reason these shoes should work as well as they do! None but the the top straps are elasticized and I would have worried about the heel being uncomfortable or cutting in. The straps at the toes are actually too loose and the strap over the instep is a little tight, but despite all that, in fact these sandals are awesome. They're cute with everything and I can wear them on long days out without fearing blisters. I'm considering buying another pair. I am between 7.5 and 8 for sandals. I was happy with the length of the footbed in the smaller size.

I'd also recommend: Dansko, Jambu, Toms
