I was SO BUMMED that these shoes didn't work out because they are so cute! But I ordered a 9.5 which is my normal size, but they were extremely small in the toe area so I exchanged them for a 10, which STILL cramped the toe area but my heel was coming out of the shoe! Maybe they would work for people with big heels and small toes but they did not work for me.

Great pick! Needed a comfy shoe to wear with dress pants that had a high heel. So glad I picked these. They are very comfy and look great with dress pants and jeans.

I wasn't sure these would do as my touring shoes in Europe but wore them around the house and compared with other shoes I got from Zappos. I read the reviews before ordering and some people felt the material was stiff. I guess it is a bit, but not so much to be of concern. I'm sure wearing them around before the trip will break them in some. They are gyer cute and seem to go well with crops and pants. So, I'm keeping these.

Love! These fit both my feet great, comfy, sturdy and don't make my feet like a size 10! The color is true to the web image. They are true to size and look like they will last. And, would someone explain how Zappos gets it here so quickly? I swear I hit the order button and the UPS driver walked in the door with them!

I found these shoes to be comfortable immediately and true to size. (I have relatively narrow feet.) I have received compliments on their looks too.

I bought a pair of J-41 sandals in the spring on a whim, and wore them every day until fall. I have all kinds of calf/foot issues but I won't wear something ugly, which makes shoe buying a pain. J-41's did it for me. SOO cushiony, comfortable, and yet have the all-around 360 degree support my feet also need. They are barely worn-looking so I know I can wear them next year when warm weather hits again. Anyway, on to this shoe. Saw it (and the J-41 Tahoe) at Marshalls for $39.99 each. Looked down at my feet, which were still wearing the J-41 Sandals (even though it was 68 degrees that day) and then only pretended to resist them for a while while trying both pairs on. Each has its merits, the Tahoe is somewhat lighter (both are featherweight compared to other shoes) and has a lower profile, more feminine-looking styling, and could be great for walking anywhere in the spring-summer-fall. This one, the Twilight is a bit taller and covers more of your foot, making it more supportive. It will be nice to have when all-day-walking occurs, and through the colder months. The styling is great - I love the fabric footbed for these sneakers and the color pop sole. No laces is always nice. New Balance laces always came undone for me which caused major irritation - even double-knotted they would randomly come undone walking down the street, alone, with a client, or in the rain, it was never good. But NB was the only shoe I thought I could wear until I found this brand so I put up with it. One thing I will say, and the first potential problem I saw with any J-41: I am usually a size 7 and when I tried the 7's on in the store (the Twilight) my feet kind of sunk low in the shoe, and then that ankle bone that sticks out was rubbing on the shoe opening as I walked. So I tried on the 6.5 and those fit so well - no bone-scraping at all. I say this with hesitation because other reviewers comment on other J-41's saying to buy a bigger size, but I'm saying buy a 1/2 smaller one. I wear 6.5 in dress shoes though. So try before you buy.

They are barely worn-looking so I know I can wear them next year when warm weather hits again. Anyway, on to this shoe. I'm not sure why it has "water" in the title on Amazon. On the J-41 website it says nothing about water. I bought this shoe in Marshalls ANNND another pair the "Twilight" the same day just because they were there (I bought my beloved J-41's sandals in Burlington). They were both 39.99 so there was no use resisting. I'm usually a 7 in sneakers, 6.5 in dress shoes, but these I liked the 6.5. Maybe because of the slightly wider width other reviewers have commented on? The construction and fit are great, they have a very foot-fitting mold. The base is like a breathable plasticy material like on their sandals, perhaps to encourage with or without socks. It is very 'grippy' on my sandals. The design is too cute. I am very picky but these have no room for complaint. I don't work for them but I sure do love their shoes.

I love the way these look! The best part, of course, is they are very comfortable. It didn't take long to break them in, they are easy to clean, and true to size. I usually need wide sizes, but not with these. The velcro adjustable strap is a wonderful feature.

This shoe brand was new to me and it was completely to my satisfaction. In fact I have worn them almost every day since I put them on. They fit perfectly and I love the Velcro straps. They are also light weight yet have very good support. I have worn Dansko shoes for years because of the great support but they are much heavier and tippy when walking on side walks. Would absolutely purchase more of these shoes.

Not J-41's best quality, leather a little cheap, hard and scratchy around the heel area. Also bought Carissa, much better quality leather and execution. Too bad, super cute.

These are adorable, but unfortunately I had to send them back. They seem to be well made with decent arch support. I sent them back because I was trying to break out of my Dansko rut. I am a hairstylist and I wear my Dankso's every day and wanted a cute, comfortable, stylish shoe to break the monotony. Maybe I have hobbit feet, but they felt like they were being suffocated in this shoe. Maybe if you have dainty, narrow, pixie feet these will work for you.

It was cold in the south last winter and these boots were a lifesaver. They fit perfect, were cute with jeans and black pants, had arch support and kept me warm. Love this quirky boot.

This sandal is really cute but the cutout stitching rubs my baby toe raw. I wish it was leather instead of plastic manmade material as then this likely would not happen. Sad to have to return these....

These are just what I was looking for: a nice looking, comfortable shoe that would go both casual and slightly dressier for colder months (many shoes in this style are mesh). I have a wider foot with higher insteps and these worked for me. The back of the shoe is a bit stiff, but I am hoping with wear they will break in. This was my first J-41 purchase.

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.

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!
