There is something odd about this shoe and I can't pinpoint it. I only tried them on and walked around in my home, but it felt like I was going to turn an ankle wearing them. I just didn't feel stable. They weren't too high and they were as cute as can be, but I didn't feel very safe in them, so back they go.

Very cute shoes but they are givimg me blisters across the top of my feet. I also think they are way over-priced for what they are but it's almost impossible to find slides anymore and even harder to find 5's!. I've been trying to wear them in but I can't say I'd recommend them yet. The bottom is nice and squishy though.

My daughter and I have been buying these sandals for years. They are cute, comfortable and we wear them all year round! You will not be disappointed!

How disappointing, it says that the shoe is leather and I say not. It feels like fake suede or crushed velvet. Poor quality for the $, however they are very cute and did keep them as I needed them for an event that weekend. I'm sure I could have gotten something just a cute for 1/2 the $ just not the time to go looking and felt deceived by the description. My overall rating is based on quality of the shoe. Personally I don't feel they are worth the cost.

LOVE LOVE THIS SHOE. I HAVE FLAT FEET AND I CAN WEAR THIS SHOE WITHOUT MY FEET IN PAIN. I ALSO HAVE WIDE FEET WITH THE LEFT FOOT LARGER THAN THE RIGHT DUE TO AN INJURY. AGAIN NO PAINS. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Love this sandal. I get compliments every time I wear them. I wear them to work standing up all day with no problem. A couple of pieces of advice: - They are about 1/2 size smaller. I usually wear a size 6 sandal and ended up with a 7. Definitely size up as well if you have even slightly wide feet. - They do stretch. They were comfortable the 1st couple of days, but then got super comfortable later. I had a marking from the band the first few days, but now no more. Definitely worth the price. I ended up buying them for my mom as a Mother's Day gift and she's in love.

Love the bling on this Athena Alexander wedge. It's dressy, fun, I receive lots of compliments and it is very, very comfortable. I wear it with skirts, pants, and shorts. The bling sparkle like no other shoe brand. They fit true to size.

Shoe is so cute, but you need a full size larger than you normally wear. I wear a 10 and need an 11 in this shoe... my heart is broken, broken I say!

Love this shoe! So pretty and comfy, too. I was concerned the straps would hurt after wearing them awhile, but no reason to be concerned. I've worn these shoes a number of times and they have always been comfortable.

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..

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!
