The front strap was too tight. Replaced the pair in hopes it was a flaw in the shoe, but alas, the 2nd pair had the same problem. So I ordered a size larger and the straps were so big that the shoe flopped around on my foot. Sadly, I will return.

The shoes are very comfortable. Very cute. I will probably order them in the other colors. Can be worn casually dressed up.

Very nice shoe. I ordered size 4 and although the shoe says size 4, it did not fit. It was too big.

I wear a size 5M; but in open toes I need to size down one. Athena Alexander has always been my first choice when shopping for sandals as it's one of few brands that offer small sizes. Until these past 2 years, I've been more than happy with both fit and quality. Over half a dozen pairs, never a return. Since then not so; only one out of past four pairs was a keeper, rest returned due to fit. No longer can I trust their sizing; too inconsistent. Straps that go over the top part of the foot are cut too long for my medium width foot, it causes a gap and worst my foot slips too far forward causing shoe to look too big. These may be ok for a fuller or wide foot, no problem if you can size down. I'm already at the smallest end with no other choice. They are also a bit pricey since it's mostly made of synthetic, but style is very pretty. Too bad for me(again), loved the look. Will continue trying as Zappos offers a consumer friendly shipping policy...no charge to try it on....thank you Zappos you make it easy to shop with you. Please share our comments with Athena hopefully they'll return to what they were. Sizeno longer runs true but No longer quality have fallen. Once true to size no longer is true; straps going over the front part of the foot are much too long making the sandal too wide and the length of the shoe is longer also which makes the size run large. I've always bought Athena sandals because they make size 4 and the quality is good.

These shoes were pretty true to size for me. They look very nice on - flattering design. Not quite the arch support that I would like if I were wearing them all day, but for evening wear, I do not think that it will be a problem. I love Zappos! I recommend you to everyone any time shoe talk comes up! You provide great customer service, too, and very friendly staff on the phone when help is needed.

This obviously " simple" shoe... is just amazing. The band over the foot is perfect, it does adjust perfectly to the width of your foot. The very gentle elastic is so designed as to not squeeze.. or be too loose. I am amazed at the great fit and comfort and the style and look. Great sandal... I love it.

I like this shoe but had an issue initially with the strap pushing into the top of my foot and causing pain. I used a shoe stretcher and now the shoes fit perfectly and are comfortable.

I had shoes that looked just like this for many years and was looking for replacements. These were unfortunately a much lower quality version of the shoes I had. The sole of this shoe is a hard, slick plastic that slips on smooth surfaces and the braided upper part looks cheap and plastic-y.

Omg... First of all they don't fit like other reviewers stated. I wore them while shopping at Target for like 30 minutes and it cut my feet open on the back and the top. I literally was in tears by the time I got to my car, the shoes are horribly designed! I'm a size 6 and my feet are not even wide!

I love these! The width is a little too wide for my feet. The only thing is when you slip your feet into the sandals the surface is a little slippery.

I originally ordered this shoe in my normal size, but had to send them back because they were too small. I liked their look well enough that I ordered them one size bigger. They bigger size fit perfect. These heels are very attractive and very comfortable to wear. So, definitely buy them, just get a size bigger!

Classy & dressy. Got a lot of compliments. Be careful when walking with these hard molded soles. If you step on something - chance of rolling ankle. But beautiful, dressy & relatively comfortable.

Looks great, but did not work for me as they slapped against my heels when I walked. Contacted customer support and she was able to find a similar pair with straps on the back. I am waiting for the new pair and hope to be able to give a great review for that one.

The shoes fit true to size. I am very happy on the foot but be ready to hear yourself coming and going on any type of hard surface floor. You cannot escape the loud tread of yourself. It is a bit like a human tractor. Yet I kept them!

I have this shoe in a size 11 which is what I ordered. I am returning this shoe since it is a full size larger than the one I own. It is marked as an 11 but fits like a 12. Disappointing .

These are so cute. I own four wedge sandals in this brand. So comfy you can shop all day in them and feet still feel good end of day.

Very comfortable, but they run even smaller than the other Athena Alexander sandals I have. I should have bought 2 sizes up instead of 1 size up. I wear a 9 in most shoes, but I got a 10...thinking of sending back for an 11.

Usually wear 6 1/2 wide. Ordered these in a 7. Size worked for me. Although they seemed a bit narrow. However, at the last minute I decided I didn't like the shoes I had picked out for my daughter's wedding. Ordered these online on Sunday night. Got them on Wednesday. Left Thursday for the wedding. THANK YOU ZAPPOS! I was able to dance all night!

Great classic slide. This is perfect for work and evenings out. Bought the black and buying the leopard now after seeing this!

I returned first pair because right shoe did not fit correctly. The replacement pair (which Zappos got to me in record time!) is fine except, to say that I have had many pairs of Athena Alexander shoes over the years and this pair does not seem to be up their usual high quality. The shoe is lighter in weight and just not quite up to par with the other pairs that I have owned. I hope Athena does not get too cheap with the manufacture of their shoes or I will stop buying their product.

I read all of the reviews prior to purchasing, as there was quite a bit of concern regarding fit. I am a 7.5 or 8 depending on the shoe. So I ordered the 8 and a 9 to be safe. The 8s were perfect even a bit of wiggle room. Great for the office and I ran around all day doing payroll on the first day of wearing, with no "break in" issues. Extremely comfortable and cute!
