This is a really cute, stylish shoe. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit really well. The thong part and the part above the mid-foot runs high above the foot...especially if you have feet that run to the narrow side. The ankle straps will accommodate wider ankles. There is no arch support and they will rub if you wear them a long time. That being said, I kept them because they are so cute, but don't wear them long or often.

I love these shoes! They are cute, comfortable, and I've received many compliments on them. I purchased the black and gold pair and am very happy with them.

These are amazing. I have a wide foot and was worried the front strap would be too tight, but it fits comfortably. None of the straps rub. Such comfortable, stylish shoes for a great price! I will be buying another pair.

These sandals are not only cute but are truly comfortable. Highly recommend for women who love style but will not give up comfort for the sake of fashion. These have a thick cushioned sole and at 63 years old it's just what I absolutely look for in a pair of shoes! Love these 10 times over. I wear a 7 1/2 med., and they are "true" to size, my little toe rest right on the edge of the sole. Thank you Sam for making no-nonsense sandals.

I liked these shoes so much I ordered another pair in black! Great style and can wear with jeans or a cute summer dress. Very comfortable and easy to wear. I selected no arch support but the shoe does have a bit of a cushy lining/insole so it gives the feel of a tiny bit of arch support. Walked around in Vegas for a few hours and feet were not sore at all. Overall great sandals!

Just received these sandals this morning and put them on to run errands and get my hair cut. I had a girl stop me on the street to ask where I purchased them. My hair stylist loved them as well. They were really comfortable right out of the box and with two compliments the first time I wore them I'd say they are total winners. LOVE THEM!

Cute sandals!! I purchased these in saddle/gold and the black ones. I usually wear size 6 1/2 or 7 in sandals. Had to return for a size 6. For reference on those of you who have the Sam Edelman Gigi sandal I wear a size 7 in those. So these definitely run one size large. Happy with my purchase! :)

I had been coveting these shoes for quite some time and when I saw them on zappos I jumped and ordered both the storm color and the gold. I've read the prior reviews about sizing, and how these run big, so I ordered an 11 in the storm and a 10 in the gold because the 11 was sold out. I'm normally a ten and a half, but don't have much luck finding that size, so I wound up getting an eleven to be safe. The 10 fits me, but doesn't leave my toes as much extra room as I'd like. The 11 feels very roomy and I have a good half inch of space by the toe area. Both look smashing on, and I'm keeping both pairs because I plan on living in them this summer!

These were so cute I wanted them to fit me so badly, but they were super super snug on my sample size 6 foot. After walking around my house in them for a bit they were just too snug for wearing outdoors, so sent them back. The elastic on the heel doesn't allow for any adjusting.

These shoes are quite cute and will be comfy after adding an insole pad. I ordered the orange color which is like a neon orange and is very bold. I'm only giving them 3 stars because I think there should have been padding already included.

This is a great shoe! It is surprisingly comfortable with just enough padding to feel good. It runs narrower than other Circus styles, but has room in the ankle straps for slightly wider ankles. The ankle straps do not rub. It also does not overpower the foot like some gladiator styles do. So glad I purchased these!

I took a chance on these after reading the reviews, and am so glad I did! Yes, the non-adjustable straps across the front don't correspond to a Medium foot, but they're perfect for Narrow feet (like mine). The foot-bed padding makes these very comfortable even before breaking the shoes in. I'm looking forward to taking these along on an upcoming weekend trip.

I would definitely size up on these, I'm normally an 8 so naturally I ordered an 8, but my toes are right at the tip of the sandal... An 8 1/2 would be perfect.

Ordered these shoes in my usual 8 1/2 and they were way too big. I exchanged for an 8 and they fit fine in the length, but were so tight they actually cut the top of one of my feet. My feet are not exceptionally narrow, but they certainly wouldn't be classified as wide. Had to return the second pair as well. Besides being too tight, they were very uncomfortable (not that I would expect a shoe like this to be that comfortable). Definitely order a half size down and only order if you have narrow feet!

Very cute. Good fit. They are a little brighter than pictured. A little more towards neon.

Love these boots! The leather is really soft and no break in is needed. The sizing was also right on. I like that the heel doesn't make any noise when I walk!

Where the top of the shoe attaches to the sole has a huge seam and is extremely uncomfortable on the soles of the feet. Very cute shoe as long as you didn't want to walk in it.

These are super cute but they smell like gasoline. I couldn't even try them on - the smell was so overpowering, I had to put the lid right back on. I ordered these in 2 colors and both smelled equally bad. I had to provide a rating for comfort - but I never put them on.

These shoes are exactly as marketed. Nice, simple, comfortable flats. When I wear them at work I am extremely comfortable. The only time I felt a bit of an issue was when walking very long distances to and from work in them and I felt rubbing on the back of my heel. Overall though a great shoe, especially for the price!

This is the third pair of sandals I've bought from the Sam Edelman "Circus" collection. These sandals are extremely comfortable. I'm on my feet all day and these sandals can take it.

I am sad to return these as I absolutely love the look of this shoe. They look a lot nicer on than in the picture and don't look cheap as many, if not most, summer slip on's do. It is casual but I think --quite surprisingly--it could be worn a little more dressy as well, especially this season with the metallic flats being on trend. Unfortunately my usual 8.5 size slipped up on the heel, and I think an 8 would have been too small. Also, the foot bed was too narrow for me. My foot is a little wide, but I've never had to order wide anything, so I think it runs pretty narrow. No arch support as expected, but it felt like it would have been okay for activities that didn't require a lot of walking. No 12 hour days at the mall or 5 mile walks in these, I don't imagine. But I would have kept them for sure if they fit as they are a great looking flat that's essentially cool as a sandal but with a little more coverage, which is what I was looking for, and I feel like they would have been reasonably comfortable if worn appropriately.
