I dunno where to start with these boots. First, I've worn J-41 shoes before. They are usually super cute and super comfy. The footbed is cushy, but supportive, and I like shoes that have traction instead of those smooth bottoms that are good for nothing. These LOOKED cute here, but when I put them on something really weird happened. The toe box, where it is stitched, was not stiff. So, it sort'f just flopped outward causing a Bozo-The_Clown effect. Very surprisingly flimsy. To add insult to injury, the stitch on the inside of the boot rubbed the top of my foot causing pain within 2 minutes of wearing them. These are just not good boots. I am very surprised this brand produced them.

Love them. Not super sexy, but very comfortable and I love them. Great fit!

These are extremely cute and sporty. The insoles are padded so they feel great on! Some vegan shoes look plastic, these do not. Really well made so I am going back for a second pair. Can't go wrong with J41 shoes!

This is a high clog bootie that feels one size too small and the elastic gores make it difficult to slide my foot in. With heavy wool socks in the winter a size larger would be better. They look like they are made from Naugahyde! (That stuff old diner booths are made of!) Not really all that attractive in real life. Back they go but thanks Zappos for excellent customer care!

I love these shoes. However, the fabric near the toe of one of the shoes has pulled away from the rubber cap. After seven months they are now unwearable.

Wowser, so comfy. Wish I had these last year on my extended trip (lots of walking) to Germany. These are super cushy, and I feel like they are made to hold up well...will report back next year. They are like a hybrid between a Keen "industrial strength" sandal and a nice comfy shoe.

I bought these looking for a replacement for the discontinued Merrell style I loved. I took the first pair out of the box and went for a 3-mile walk without a problem, so they passed the test. I now own three pairs (gray, black, and red). They are very comfortable and great for walking. They also look nice -- good with skirts, slacks, and shorts. A plus for me, a vegetarian, is that they aren't leather. I wear 11 M, and they fit perfectly.

I love this shoe. Felt perfect out of the box and I wore it a lot. However, too soon the mesh connection to the toe ripped out. Zappos replaced my shoes (yay for them) - but I expected far more wear. Nonetheless - these are favorites for style and comfort.

These are really cute shoes, comfortable on long walks right out of the box. No breaking in period. I have worn with shorts, pants, and even a casual dress. I have narrow feet and these worked well for me. They would also probably accommodate regular width feet, but not very wide feet.

Just finished a catering job where I was on my feet for 14 hours. These shoes were a complete success. I'm a size 9 and I found them true to size. Wish they made them in black (and every other color, too!)

I had been looking for a cute, comfy closed toe sandal but I have weird feet. I have a very low instep plus a high arch, narrow and very small feet. I actually found the red version in a local store so I went to try on. I normally wear a 6, but it's a good thing I tried it on because the 6.5 actually fit better. The 6 was just a bit tight on my toes. I love the mary jane strap - a must for me since I can't wear any type of mule or slide. I walk right out of them...they are never narrow enough nor the instep low enough. The footbed is removable and nice and cushiony. I find that they are airy enough to not make my feet sweat, a concern I had from reading some of the other reviews for this type of shoe. It is a bit wide for my foot, but since I have narrow feet I'm sort of used to it as it's difficult to find a good selection of narrow shoes. The mary jane strap has lots of play in it so I'm able to tighten it enough for me. Go a half size bigger and you will most likely be happy. I get so many compliments!

This is such a nice sandal, but it has to fit just right, because the footbed is so closely shaped both at the front and back. After trying 2 sizes, I reluctantly decided it wouldn't work for me.

Comfortable and cute shoes. I needed to wear them with a thin socks because the strap cut into my bare skin (the edge is rather sharp). That made them a little tight and I didn't want to take a chance on breaking them in so I'm returning them.

These shoes are super cute and I really wanted to like them, however, there were a few things wrong. The shoe has an extreme curvature inward at the toes. I'm sorry but the average foot shape is not a C. There is zero arch support, which is knew about from reading other comments, but I was still hoping they would be somewhat comfortable. They were not. These shoes did not match. One was more curved than the other. One had more rubber sole on the toes than the other. Finally, I have never had sizing issues in the past with any other brand of shoe I've purchased but these were a bit too snug. Sadly I will be returning these.

Cute and comfy. I have worn these almost daily since I bought them. My feet run a little wide, with high in steps, and they fit like a glove!

There is something wrong about this shoe. I have the same shoe in brown and it fits perfectly, in my normal size, and I love it. I ordered this black one in my size, and it was too small. Then I ordered the next half size. Still too small, and the shoe base feels different than the brown pair; not as comfortable. I've heard that different colors of the same shoe can be made in different factories, in different countries, even. If you get this shoe, you may need a full size up from your normal size.

I love the Lotus!Another shopper recommended the shoe to me when I was looking at it. Normally, I wear a 9 or 9 1/2, but the salesperson recommended a 10. I was concerned about the width because I always have to look for a C but she was sure it would be fine. And, it is! Best shoe I have found in years...ok for casual, not bad for dressier. The closed toe is great, I don't like looking at "toes" in other people or myself. One of the best features...the strap on the shoe is very comfortable and I do not have to change shoes to drive. Thank you J41! And I like the way you attempt to contribute to the environment.

I loved these shoes so much that I bought them in two colors. Wore them a lot last summer, and they were really comfy. The black-with-lime color combo is especially cute. This summer, after I wore them a few times, I noticed that they started falling apart. The mesh on the upper part of the shoes tore, and pieces of the soles came off. I had to throw both pairs away after only one summer's use. So my advice is to save your money and buy another shoe (have seen a lot of similar styles online) or go ahead and buy these with the knowledge that they won't hold up very well.

I have this shoe from a few years back, when Jambu made it, and have loved it. This one ran half a size small, though, and a little narrower than the previous shoe, but I have wide feet, so I don't think that would be a problem for others.

Another great pair of comfortable walking shoes from J-41. It's weird when people ask what brand of shoes I am wearing, because none has heard of J-41. But I am going to fix that amongst my friends and family. This is my second pair of casual walkers from this brand. I am a fan. They make shoes that just conform to your feet the minute you put them on. True to size and no breaking in necessary! Love love love!

Fantastic shoe! These feel a lot like watersocks but look more like a low profile sneaker. The mesh sides have stretch but also hold your foot stable. The wider footbed makes them super comfortable. I typically wear 6 or 6.5 - the 6 fit me perfectly. I purchased the Navy - really cute. Love these!
