I have worn the Roxi sandal for years...it fit perfectly...then this year they have changed the sizing on the strap and now the sandal is too loose for me to keep it on my foot. So sad.

These shoes are exactly what I was looking for. The are cute, fit well and are super comfortable. I am a 7½ and I did size up to an 8 and they fit perfectly. Usually by the end of the work day I cannot wait to take my shoes off, but with the these, I had no discomfort and could have kept wearing them.

About sizing up - I ordered a 1/2 size up and ordered a 7 as advised. The width feels very comfortable but length wise they look like they are a half size too big for me. I am considering returning them, but am thinking 6 & 1/2 may feel too narrow. I think I will go ahead and exchange for my normal size because shoes do stretch after all. I would say if you have very wide feet then go ahead and order a half size up, but if you can endure a bit of tightness, order your normal size. They are cute and look well made. I suppose they do make some noise when I walk in them, but no more than other wedge shoes do. I own Gayle also (Athena Alexander) but the soles peeled in places. I did wear them (Gayle) all the time so that maybe why they peeled.

I got the shoes in pewter. They are cute! I normally wear a size 7.5. I followed the advice of other reviewers and got a slightly larger size. The size 8 fits me OK.

I ran too long and I'm a firm 10. the bed was super comfortable but my heel totally slipped no matter how tight I strapped the ankle.

Very comfortable and a little heel to make them a bit dressier. I wish the straps came up a little higher so the shoe didn't "clop" so much but otherwise, I am very happy with them.

I love these shoes...I really do. However, from about the 3rd time I wore them the little elastic piece holding the strap over the top of my foot started stretching out. The 4th time I wore them one of the little plastic pieces tore off. I wasn't running or doing anything other than walking. I teach school and was teaching in them. Very frustrated! Spent quite a bit for these shoes and now I have to spend more to get something else. This may not have happened to others, maybe I just got a lemon pair. I love Athena Alexander shoes...but not these.

Cute shoe, but ran about a 1/2 size too small. Also, straps are too loose to fit on a more narrow, slim foot.

This is a beautiful sandal! I wish I could keep it but my feet are too wide. This is a very narrow shoe for a regular with in my opinion. Too bad!

Very small and narrow. I had to return them for a larger size and the larger size isn't much better. These shoes are definitely not true to size. Seem comfortable but I haven't worn them yet for any length of time.

Nice looking comfortable shoe. Zappos gave excellent service when the first pair had a defect. I called and a new perfect pair arrived in 2 days! I dropped the first pair at the UPS store for free return shipping.

I love the look of these sandals. And when they are in the sun they shine brilliantly. They really are beautiful and because they are wedge you get some height without a high heel! The problem is that the strap highest on the foot is connected to the shoe with elastic. After one or two wears it stretches too much and then does not keep the shoe in place. It becomes very hard to walk. So, I cannot recommend that you purchase this one.

In closed toe shoes, I am a size 5M, but in open toes I need a half or full size smaller. Athena is one of the few companies that make size 4. It has always been my go to brand. I bought 4M. The shoe length is true to size, however the straps across the arch are too long in these shoes which makes them too wide. It seems to be a trend for Athena. This is the second pair (different styles) that I have had to return due to straps being too long across the top of the foot. I own numerous pairs of Athena shoes and have never had this problem until these past two years. I wonder if a generic strap length is used now regardless of shoe size to cut costs? That is disappointing as I loved the styles but am no longer confident of their fit.

Just received these sandals today. They are very comfortable, however width and size are smaller than stated. I need an additional size bigger for this sandal. I have a very narrow foot and got a regular width and it fits me perfect whereas regular width is usually too wide. Very comfortable but the these shoes run small.

As expected. Bought these as a replacement for a similar style, same brand that the dog decided to feast on. They are very comfortable. You can easily wear them all day and walk around in them with no discomfort.

Not the most comfortable as it doesn't have a lot of stability and the straps are loose like it's bigger, not a firm fit...I'm not sure I'm keeping these. Worn once...

I love Athena Alexander shoes. They're extremely comfortable and if you've had foot problems and can't wear heels anymore, this was my solution. The low platform in the front compensates for the height of the wedge heel so there's no stress on your feet. They're nicely cushioned and I wear them all day. Be sure to get one size larger than you normally wear.

Love this shoe. Comfortable. My foot doesn't slip, can wear for a long time. Did order half size up from my usual 7 and a half because no half sizes, but fits fine.

Cute sandal! Dressier than just a flip-flop. I normally wear a 6 1/2 but ordered a 6 and it fits perfectly. I love the style and will probably order another pair in a different color. The only downside is the band is rubbing across the upper part of my foot but I think in time the band will stretch out and will no longer be an issue. For now, I will place a bandaid as a cushion wear the band rubs.

This is a really cute shoe. I "would" have bought multiple pairs (colors) had they just designed some kind of arch support in them, instead of completely flat footbed.

I am very pleased with Athensa Alexander Storia dress sandal. They are so comfortable and I can dress them up or down depending upon the occasion. The heel is the right height and I can stand and walk in them comfortably. I recommend them to those who need both class and comfort.
