I am back for a second pair, this time in brown. My revised review is that the shoe quickly softens and adapts to normal size. It gets more comfortable with regular wear. I absolutley love them.

I read good reviews of these shoes before I purchased them. I tried them on in the store, and they felt comfortable and fit well. But, walking for more than a block and the shoes feel hard, rigid and inflexible without support or cushioning. My feet are so sore that I cannot walk. I am very disappointed. I have El Nat boots which I love, but these are a waste.

Love this shoe! Have it in red and in blue and have worn the red pair almost every day since I got it. It's like a better looking Birkenstock! First ordered a size that correlated to 9.5/10 but it was too small. Figured what the heck and ordered the 41 which was larger than my usual size and remarkably it is not too big -- it's just right. Okay, but here's the rub on this shoe: the only thing the manufacturer (and Zappos) says you can clean it with (and it seems to smudge easily) is something called Eco-Cream, sold only by El Naturalista. Tried ordering from them but their software cannot see my address (a letter street) and keeps changing it to something else! It's the greatest downside...tho' I learned from Zappos that Planet Shoe gives the Eco-Cream with purchase of this brand of shoes. If I figure out how to get the cleaner, I'll post it. And if others figure out how to clean the shoes of smudges, please post.

I'd also recommend: Ecco, Earth, Some Birkenstocks

Love, love, love these shoes! They have been on my feet almost everyday since I got them - a nice cross between a sandal and a shoe. Very comfortable without socks!! If you wear a 40 in a sandal, get the 41. I had to send the first pair back.

These shoes are super cute and I love the adjustable strap around the back of the heel. The heel cup is deep and just seemed to suck my foot right on into the shoe. Unfortunately, there was not enough sole between my foot and what I was walking on. If I had worn these outside I probably would have felt every single pebble or stone I stepped on. I guess these could be classified as minimalist shoes (?). If you need excellent arch support, these shoes are not for you. If you like Birkenstocks or Vionic/Orthaheel, these will not work for you. As far as sizing, they were somewhat off. The left shoe didn't seem quite long enough, but the right shoe was perfect...guess my left foot is bigger. I wear a 10.5 and got the 10.5-11. These are really not in between - they are closer 10.5 if not even a little smaller or at least the left shoe is; however, I would not say they are a whole 1/2 size smaller, but maybe 1/4. I got the dark brown and the color is just gorgeous and the leather is really soft.

These are cute enough, but not very comfy out of the box. They do have a hard footbed, like a Birkenstock, but the leather at the toe is hard, and there was pressure on my toenails. I adjusted the velcro, but it didn't help. They are also a little darker red than they appear. If they were more comfortable, I'd keep them. Can't do it for these, given they are a bit spend.

I usually wear a 9.5-10/B or "Wide". I ordered this in the equiv. of 9.5-10 and it was too narrow across the vamp and too short. So disappointed... so thought I'd try again and got the equiv. of 10.5/11 and it works. A teeny bit long but not much. Love the style, comfort, support. Do not like that it 'scuffs' easily and am unsure how to make it less scuffy looking.
