I loved the look and quality of this sandal. I need it in a half size or perhaps full size smaller but it doesn't come in 4,4.5. I'd want two pair if they did.

I love El Naturalista's shoes. They have a clean and elegant look. Very comfortable, you can wear them all day long. The size runs a bit bigger so I had to get a size smaller. Zappos makes it so easy to return and exchange that it wasn't a problem at all to send back the bigger ones and get a right size.

I really was hoping this shoe would work for me but the size I first ordered was way too loose in the toe box and when I ordered the next size down it is way too tight/short. I usually wear a med width shoe but this one is running wide.

Cute and incredibly lightweight but that also translates to very little between you and the pavement. In fact, where the fabric is joined to the rubber sole creates a thicker rim around your foot and if you press down with your fingers on the insole, you feel the gap where the fabric isn't doubled under! I could put an insert because there's room, but they look a bit like clown shoes since they're bigger than expected. (Size wise, they say "41/10-10.5" so I should have taken that literally, however, I'm constantly fitting very well into a 41 and in the past have been told it's the right equivalent for 9.5. So, order your U.S. equivalent, that seems true to size. Ignore what you might otherwise fit in Euro sizing. That is, if you like a very thin sole!)

These were cute, but not quite what I was looking for. The red color was lighter in person and looked like it would stain easily. Also, the soles are made of a very soft rubbery material that would squeak loudly when walking on hard surfaces. Overall the fit was nice and the style was interesting, but not enough to keep them.

Great for wide feet (without the annoying mistake shoe companies often make of making the heel bed too wide). I love the look -- it's got the hippie cork foot bed but a modern asymmetrical upper, with no rubbing. I am also having trouble with the little tab where the two pieces of the upper attach to each other, but I think sticking moleskin there will solve it (my bone just protrudes there so it occurs a lot).

I purchased this shoe thinking it would be super comfortable. There is usually a breaking in period, but this shoe continues to hurt on the outside of my foot where the elastic attaches. Very disappointed since they were not cheap.

These shoes are comfortable and offer a lot of toe room. At the same time, they are feminine and attractive. I appreciate their versatility. They can be worn with jeans or with dressier pants.

I have wide flat feet. I usually have to order wides, but sometimes European sizing fits. These fit! The left one (my left foot is bigger) was a little tight for the first wearing but loosened up fine. I don't have much of an arch and neither does this shoe, too high arches hurt my...arch. They are cute and comfortable. If your feet sound like mine, try them. Those that like luxurious cushy shoes might find these not soft enough on the soles.

Too wide -- both the footbed and the straps are too long. I almost always wear a 9.5 narrow to medium shoe. This is wider than most mediums are. The length is fine. The black leather is pretty soft and I like the asymmetrical style. Just doesn't fit -- my foot really sloshes around in it -- the straps are so loose. Too bad.

Too short. I almost always wear a 9.5 shoe. I ordered size 40 in these, supposedly a 9 - 9:5. My toes touch the front edge in an uncomfortable way. Otherwise, the leather is nice -- thick but fairly soft -- the shoe is a bit wider than some mediums and the red is gorgeous -- a soft, slightly pinksh coral red. If they'd fit, I'd love to have that color.

These are so cute! I am a true 7.5, and these fit great in 38. They are a very good fit for my feet. I often find shoes to be too roomy and wide; and I usually have a hard time with straps because I can't get them to fit snug enough. But these are perfect. What a treat to find a shoe that fits well. I have already ordered another pair, in another color. Yay to El Naturalista!

I tried these because of the rubber sole and low heel and open back clog style. A past auto accident has caused significant foot and ankle damage. These with the use of my orthotics or some Aetrex orthotic inserts allow me to walk more comfortably/decrease the pain from walking because the thick rubber sole absorbs most of the impact. I bought several pairs in a variety of colors and two in black for dress. When I find shoes that work this well and are cute, I get them!

The El Naturalista Iggdrasil is one of the most comfortable pair of shoes that I have had in my entire life (I am 67). They are also very cute! I can wear them with or without socks and I have five pairs. They are wonderful shoes.

I'm a true 9.5, narrow to medium. I bought the size 40 and it's perfect on my smaller foot and just okay on my larger foot. So I think this 40 runs about size 9 1/4. Too bad. I'm keeping them and have worn them a couple times where I don't need to walk much. There's not a whole lot of padding, but there is pretty good arch support (which I require). I'm pretty sure the 41s would be too big on both feet. They are on the narrow side of medium, so just know that. They fit me fine, but wider feet won't like them at all. The peep toe is barely peeping -- but it's there a little bit. The wide stretchy strap makes this style what it is, as well as the two-tone combinations. I might get another pair...not sure, since they're just a bit snug. If you're a 9, narrow, you'll just love them.

Buyers should be aware of the green plastic tag, representing recycled materials. It is not very attractive. I am trying to remove it; although I value the recycling, I do not like the color.

I really like this El Naturalista Wakataua shoe! The brown leather color and quality are superb. I just don't like that the shoe heel extends a bit too far out past my heel which makes it appear too big. I'm ordering the next size down to see whether it fits neater without being too short for my toes.

Cute and comfortable but, on my feet, feel a half-size smaller than marked. I wear an 11 which is the upper limit in sizing for this style. If a larger size had been available, I would not have hesitated to order up. Of the four El Naturalista styles that I've purchased to date, two have been returned because they ran small. I don't think inconsistent sizing is unique to EN's as I've run into similar issues with others of similar quality.

These are very cute, casual shoes. But the size is marked as 5 to 5½, so I took a chance. If you are a true size 5, do not buy these shoes - they will definitely be too big. I will sadly return them.

Runs small. And, the Velcro strap is only long enough for the slimmest of feet. Back it goes.

I bought a pair in henna. They are really comfortable and fit perfectly. I will be wearing them on an upcoming trip to France. I just ordered another pair in blue!
