I'm usually a size 8, sometimes 8 1/2 but I know this brand runs small so I ordered a 9...guess what? Still too small. They were too tight and made a noise when I walked. I certainly couldn't walk around my office building making that much noise. :-)

I love these sandals. I have them in every color. Alexander Athena must continue to make more. I can wear them all day long with no problems. The only thing I wish about this sandal that it could be a little wider. As long as Alexander Athena makes this sandal I will buy them..

These are the most comfortable heels/wedges I have ever worn. The shoe is also more subtle in person. The front strap bulges out a little, which is annoying, but overall it's a good looking and very comfortable shoe.

I bought these exact sandals last year and wore them only on 2 vacation occasions adding up to maybe 1 month. The straps underneath have become unglued and frayed, the rhinestone string on top has become loose. I love these and I made repairs with super glue and black thread. Quality, not worth the money spent.

These remind me of the Chloe "Lauren" flats but without the hefty price tag. The color is more nude in real life than the picture shows and they do feel a bit too large, but overall they're a good casual flat.

I have several pair of AA wedge sandals and am a big fan. These were no exception, love them. Bought to wear w/ maxi dresses and jumpsuits and it works perfectly with both. 2 days after receiving, wore them to a party where I was able to dance all night with no pain at all! I am normally an 8 or 8 1/2 but always wear a size 9 in this brand. I have problem feet so this style of wedge heel is the only way I can get some height and still be super comfortable. My only complaint with this brand is when buying it in a color, the entire bottom section of the shoes are black, therefore not matching the uppers. Wish the bottom part would match the top color because only black shows while walking when wearing maxi dress or pants that need a subtle color. As always, Zappos has wonderful customer service!

Great sandals right out of the box! I took these shoes on a recent cruise vacation. I tried them on at home but hadn't worn them until on the vacation. They were very comfortable. I love that you can dress them up or down. They fit well on my narrow foot whereas some of the other sandals by this maker were too wide.I do wish that for the price they were leather as advertised. It was not a deal breaker as there is a small amount of material and they are so comfortable.

The part that goes around my foot is very large. So large I have to return. My foot flops around while in the shoe. Other than that it's great.

These were so narrow and small that I couldn't get my foot into a size 10. I'm usually a 9.5-10 and I don't have a particularly wide foot. I thought it was crazy how small these felt. I even thought they were missed marked or shipped wrong but it said "10" right on the shoe.

I love these shoes! They are my go-to summer sandals. My first pair survived a rough and tumble summer and I was bummed out I had to bid them farewell. But, as fate would have it, I was at the doctor's office and another patient had them on! She said she "just ordered them" on Zappos! I ordered another pair on line the same day. I hope they stock these forever! They are awesome!

What happened to your other colors in Gayle, size 4? Champagne? Gold? With the exception of Gayle, I fear that Athena Alexander is lowering it's standards by resorting to more and more man-made materials. Do they not understand that the customer will pay more for a comfortable leather shoe? I am doubly disappointed because I wear a size 4, and Athena is one of the few companies that even makes a size 4. But if the size 4 hurts my foot, the correct size does not help. Please, AA, bring back more of your Gayle leather slides and give us more like it. Read the reviews here, at Nordstrom and others--women love the Gayle slide. Enough already with thongs; thongs rub a lot of feet, so limit that style to a couple, not a half dozen! And stop with the vinyl/plastic uppers; we want leather that moves with our feet. You can't make a shoe that fits every foot but you can give us a material (leather) that MOVES with every foot. Why don't you get this? Why do you want to turn your wonderful shoe line into "Cinderella's of Boston"? quality? We loved you before. Come back to us. Leather uppers!

So disappointing. Do not buy this shoe. It runs 3 to 4 sizes small. I ordered an 11 and my friend who wears a 9 couldn't fit into my "11".

The shoe fits well and is easy to walk in, but the way the rhinestones are applied looks cheap. I needed them for in event the day they arrived so I kept them. Otherwise I would have returned them.

True to size. This color not very well made, but comfortable. The ivory ones are better quality (I ordered this shoe in two colors). Not sure why color would make a difference. Had a small tear when I received them and Zappos immediately took care of the issue, sending me a new pair. They are holding up well and cozy!

I was looking for a cute, comfortable shoe, with not too much "bling!" to wear to a formal birthday party next month. This one fit the bill. It's very cute in person. Unfortunately, the color clashes with my dress. Besides that, try as I might, I just can't walk in slides.

Back again buying another 2 pairs in Pewter (have worn out 3 pairs of Pewter already), and in Champagne size 8. Live in Florida and this shoe can be worn dressed up or down. Perfect wedge (not too much of an incline if you have back issues) and just enough to give you a little bump up. I wear these shoes every day! Super comfortable! Runs a half size smaller than usual. Normally wear a size 7 1/2, but in these, a size 8 works perfectly. So pleased they keep these perfect shoes in stock. Hope they are never discontinued.

These say in the description they are leather, but I could tell immediately they are not.The sticker on the bottom says "synthetic upper and lining man made outsole." This is a change from all my other Athena Alexander sandals, and I have many. I first found this brand at Nordstrom and since I wear a hard to find 5, I was delighted. They fit great, had a wedge heel to give height but stability, and they are leather. I wonder if their quality is declining. The straps aren't as supple and the lining where you place your foot makes your foot stick, whereas with leather it seems to be much more comfortable on the sole of your foot. The style is cute and versatile, but I will be returning these.

My only gripe with this is that I wish they come in half sizes. I normally wesr size 8 but for some reason this shoe is a bit snug on my toes. A 8.5 would have been a perfect fit but still I'm keeping them cause they are just too cute and comfortable. You can either dress up or down with these shoes.
