Very cute shoe. I'd keep it if it didn't feel punishingly small in the toe box. I'm ordering another full size up. Worth giving it a try-- the style is charming and the feel on my feet is stable.

Ordered 1/2 size up as previously suggested (usually wear 8 1/2, ordered a 9) and the fit was perfect. Compared with my spring step Dadra's, these are noticeably heavier on my feet (wore the Dadras the day after the Yggdrasil's and I could really tell the difference. They did give me a few areas of rubbing (mostly on the top of my feet) where the Dadras were perfectly comfortable with no rubs, so I did mark these down 1 star in comfort and overall. I also have a bunion on my left foot, and where the Dadras did not rub at all, these did put some pressure but I didn't end up having any real pain after wearing 2 days in a row. I really like the way these look (the ocean is a nice deep blue) and despite the minor issues with fit I like them overall.

A beautiful shoe, but it runs quite short. It was almost wide enough for my wide ball, but because it was so short, the heel dug into mine.

I have a pair of these shoes in brown and one in black. Both are size 38 and fit perfectly. I bought a size 38 in blue and they are too small so I have to return them. However, it is a great shoe. I assume the blue color is cut differently. Too bad.

Love these shoes! Fit is good. They feel good on my feet. It's great that there is some arch support...not the usual flat sandal.

Really nice, minimalist sandals that look good with jeans, skirts, and shorts. The straps are very smooth and simple, with nothing to chafe. Velcro closure couldn't be simpler. Sole is soft and flexible. These sandals look and feel well made. However, I would not recommend them for lots of city walking or sightseeing on cobblestones. The soles are not flimsy, but they are quite thin. I walked about half a mile in them in the city yesterday and I could tell that the soles of my feet would be feeling it if I walked much more. Also, there is zero arch support, if that's an issue for you. Still -- pretty and comfortable sandals, overall.

These run short so order one size larger. Very comfortable, my feet don't sweat in them and they dress up or down. I have a narrow foot so the width might run smaller than medium, since it was comfortable to me.

I love the looks of this sandal. The 3 color leather straps go with absolutely everything! The Velcro closure is perfect. And the ankle straps cover up my not always perfectly pedicured heels. But, the insole, tho soft suede, is a bit lumpy and doesn't have enough arch support for me. My advice to El Naturalista -- copy the footbed of Naot sandals and you'll have it! I wanted to keep them tho they're a bit wider and a bit shorter than I expected (I wear 9.5, size 41 in Naots) and ordered a 41 in these too. I just didn't feel comfortable on the foot bed -- there's a little ridge/bump on the outside of the footbed -- like arch support on the wrong side of the sandal. And not enough of a bump/swelling on the inside where the arch support belongs. Sigh. If you don't care too much about arch support, these are very attractive very summery, almost flat, sandals that you'll love.

Nice casual shoe. Insole material Keeps feet fresh during summer. The Velcro steam makes them easy to wear. The leather is hard and might hurt the first time the shoe is used. Good for an office with a code for close toe shoes

These were my favorite looking pair of the few I purchased in hopes of finding stylish, versatile and comfortable shoes for an upcoming trip to Italy. Unfortunately for me they did not win the comfort battle. Where the toe piece ends across your foot is too just barely too tight, seems like it would bring on blisters quickly...but not so much so that it didn't make into the final 2 of decision making.

Overall, these shoes seem OK, just not quite for me. Based on previous reviews, I ordered a 40 instead of a 39 (I'm an 8 1/2 with a slightly long big-toe); this too-big size was indeed a bit too big. Length aside, the toe box fit too loosely in height for me (although pleasantly ample in width). The sole was a little bit hard, which would have been fine with a snugger vertical fit. As for looks, they look as expected: kinda wobbling on the line between "dressy" and "practical".

These are definitely beautiful but they did not fit as other El Naturalista shoes have on my feet- they were very narrow and uncomfortable and too small. I don't have a wide or otherwise unusually shaped foot. Returned.

Beautiful shoe, sturdy, well made, casual or dressy. Runs wide, because a medium fits my wide foot. Almost no arch support but since it's a dress shoe won't be wearing for long periods of time. Comfortable otherwise

I love this shoe! I now own it in two colors, they run a little small, so order a half size up. Super comfy and its quirky cute, the way I love my shoes

BEAUTIFUL BOOT. Great leather and well made. Unfortunately, I have very high arches and they were too tight.

I bought these sandals for a trip and the first day I wore them they were comfortable and I love the way they look on my feet. There was no need to break them in. This is my 3rd pair of el naturalista shoes and like my previous shoes, these are made very well with good quality leather that is made to last. I normally wear size 38 and these fit true to size.

These are a cute minimalist sandal. At first I tried them on and felt like they were pretty comfortable. But then I tried on a few other styles and went back to these and they felt super flat. So I would recommend for minimal walking. I walk everywhere so I need a good shoe.

I usually wear Yggdrasil. I assumed this would fit the same with just a different style. The top of my foot didn't fit in the toe box. On the other hand, the shoe is so cute!!!

I have a tendency to overpronate and these shoes felt as if they exacerbated that tendency which is really disappointing because it seems like the kind of thing that should be advertised so people don't waste their time and effort. I'm also disappointed because I otherwise think the shoes are a good purchase, even if they are a bit granola looking.
