The crossing straps are very short. If you have a high arch, you won't be able to get your foot in. The velcro, adjustable strap across the top is actually joined with elastic underneath, so it does allow a little extra room but will feel tight. I have a wide foot, and I thought I could make these work. Back they go. What a shame, because they are very cute and are well made.

I love this shoe, but sadly it has to back. I love the color, the pewter/brown is great style is very pretty lots of cushion, but...poor design with the straps. The first strap is just too tight even though it is somewhat adjustable with Velcro it's just not enough, then the metallic crisscross straps are actually too loose. I wear an 8m almost 100% of the time with very little problem and I really wanted this shoe to work because it's so cute and made with such pretty leathers, but my heel hung off the back, I just could not get my foot far enough into the shoe because of that first strap. Too bad, so sad.

I was very impressed by workmanship and quality of materials and arch support. For what ever reason I couldn't keep it on my foot slid out as I walked, very sad. It is difficult to find such a stylish well made sandal.

These are unbelievably comfortable! Hidden plus is the Velcro on red cross strap that allows for a slight adjustment. I'm an 11 with narrow feet and without adjustment I'd have to return. Probably not a good fit if you have wide feet.

To be honest I haven't worn them outside yet. I have had them on in the house a few times and I know I am going to love them. I have a size 10 narrow foot and they are the perfect width. I wouldn't get this if I had a wide foot. Awesome looking shoe. Excited to wear it!
