I was looking for a pair of sandals that would be as comfortable and hold up as well as my Chacos (designed for walking/hiking for long periods) but look stylish enough for European streets. This shoe does both very well, although after a year of wearing them quite often the very front, under the toe, has worn away in an unattractive fashion. I still wear them, it doesn't affect performance, they just are more of a casual sandal now. The are surprisingly comfortable for how thin the sole is. I wish it was only a tad thicker in the front (to deal with the sole loss issue I mentioned) or somehow that could be protected against better because even after walking several hundred miles in them the rest of the sandal still looks (and feels) amazing. My mom borrowed them, and was apprehensive when I said they were super comfortable. She put them on and completely agreed, as have the friends who have borrowed them. They pack nicely, keep their color well, and the leather is butter soft so I've never had any rubbing issues anywhere on the sandal, even around the toe loop. They get slippery when it's wet, both on the pavement and if you get the actual shoe wet, but that seems to be mild enough you can deal with it alright. I just try not to get them wet (standard for leather anyway). People say they look like Jesus sandals - only really classy Jesus sandals. I mean, Jesus was pretty happy all the time, maybe he was wearing these sandals.

The shoe color pictured (chocolate brown) in the advertisement is not a reasonable representation of the actual shoe color. Instead of the rich, dark-brown color pictured, the actual shoe color is a pinkish, milk chocolate brown, which cheapens the overall look of the sandal. The leather felt soft and the cushioned foot-bed is a definite plus, but I'm returning the shoes because of the color.

Super cute, but I have a narrow foot, and don't have a high instep, so the straps were really lose. These are the same style as another pair of expensive shoes, so the style is great for the money, but not good for narrow feet...

These are my favorite sandals in the history of sandals. I have one pair in black, and just ordered a second pair in black (to stash for when these ones wear out), as well as the brown ones (on sale!). I find them really comfortable (walk around NYC all day with no problems), and love that they don't have much of a heel.

I'm really glad I bought these sandals. I purchased the black ones. They go with most of my clothes, for work or just hanging out. I was surprised by how comfortable they are. I have worn them for walking in the city and had no problems. I thought I would have rubbing from the toe loop and back strap, but none of that. Very happy with my purchase.
