These wedgies look great . Even though they are “wide,” my foot doesn’t spread like a duck web, and yet the leather straps have enough give that the shoes are comfortable. Note: I just walked a mile+ on a humid, heat dome day in DC and my feet feel okay, even though I wouldn’t walk another mile on the hot pavement. The pic doesn’t show that the wedge side is a shiny light bronze, which is nearly invisible. Thus, the shoe looks light and thus is perfect for sundresses. In fact, I am ordering a second pair right now on the assumption that these will be worn out by the end of the summer and the style might not be available next summer.

My favorite brand, however the soft straps have a tendency to curl under while putting them on.

So glad I didn't believe the other reviews. This shoe is very comfortable and cute but almost too big. If I had ordered a size up I would have had to return it.

These stylish sandals were comfortable the first moment I slipped them on. Bought them for a casual cruise to "dress up" a bit for dinner. They look lovely with skirts, capris, and shorts. I highly recommend them.

Bought in pewter and love. A fun update to a black flat that still goes with everything. I

Beautiful but the heel is so narrow I kept teetering when I walked. I was actually afraid of falling.

Super cute with just enough flash! Comfortable on the very first day. They look great with literally everything from jeans to capris, short skirts and maxi dresses.

I never write reviews, but wrote one for this since I was so disappointed in the product. The shoes look very cute, great for the summer hot weather, but if you wear them for more then a few minutes here and there they are SO uncomfortable. The strap rubs so badly on your feet (and these were the right size!). It is something with the material and the design, but it is very painful and I can not wear them unless I am only walking for a minute or two. Not worth it!

I like these shoes. They are comfortable and have just the right amount of heel for me. However, after wearing them about a dozen times, the strap on the inner left shoe is separating from the instep. I am disappointed!

The shoe is cute but the top digs into my skin. I won't even bother to try walking in these because I don't want my feet cut up. Returning.

I love, love, love these shoes. I had the same ones for about three years and wore them constantly. They look equally as good with shorts and dresses. They tore at the insertion between the toes eventually, and I couldn't find them again for a while. When I found them again, I snatched them up, but they tore immediately at the same site. I have returned and rebought them several times after immediately tearing at the same site. IDK what happened. Did they start making them more cheaply? I have looked everywhere for a similar style, black with crystals and short heel to no avail. I guess I'm gonna try again based on first experience.

I usually wear an 8.5, and since these only come in whole sizes (which is crazy, btw), I ordered a 9. They were still too small, so I had a 10 sent to compare. Those were definitely too big. A 9.5 should have fit nicely, but no half sizes. I really liked the color and the scalloped edge, but not the fact that the shape of the toe made my toe cleavage show in one of he scallop dips. (I hate toe cleavage unless you're seeing the whole toes).

I wear 8.5 and had to get a 10. I could have even done a 10.5. Not sure how the size could be so off. I was disappointed. I feel this shoe looks better in the picture that in actuality. Poorly constructed, it felt wobbly just walking on carpet like my ankle would bend if care was not taken. The shoe looked cheap as well. Sadly I am sending it back to Zappos.

I have not had these shoes 30 days and they already broke between the toe on the right shoe. Other than that I love the shoes.

Bought these in pewter. The color has some gold in it, making it more versatile than true pewter. These shoes were comfy right out of the box. But they were unflattering to my size 11 feet because the crisscross upper adds visual bulk and the shoes themselves run about a half size large. Too bad. Back they went.

These are pretty shoes, but the fabric is swede or swed-ish and they will get really dirty. I am a huge Zappos fan, but the pair that was delivered were already dirty and appeared pre-worn.

I bought these shoes and another Athena Alexander shoe in another style at the same time. I did this because I knew that if I did not I wear these out as I love them so much. Every time I wear them I get compliments and you can wear them and walk in them all day. They are fantastic.

I am in love with these shoes. I am afraid that I am going to wear them out which is why I bought two Athena Alexander shoes in different styles at the same time. The only slight issue is that the back stretches out just a little if you wear them a lot but the good news is that they are adjustable.

I have very large feet--Left, size 12 and right size 10-11. I am always hesitant about buying dress shoes since I am so hard to fit. These shoes fit me to a T! And they are comfy. Good purchase for the price!
