First I want to say that Zappos just rocks with their selections and service. Now I want to tell you that not all Kork-Ease shoes are created equal. I have the most crankiest feet anyone could ever have with a whole host of foot problems but I decided to try Kork-Ease as a last resort for shoes with a heel. First pair I bought came from Sundance. They were gold and I could wear them for days right out of the box. Just loved them so I decided to order another pair in black. Ordered them from Zappos because I just love their service. Unfortunately the leather (not Zappos fault by any means) was totally different from the gold ones. It was stiff and gave me horrible blisters. Thinking they would stretch I tried everything from shoe stretchers to leather spray. They never did stretch to the point of being comfortable. Then I saw these grey Kork-Ease on Zappos and I couldn't resist trying them again. Lo and behold they were the same kind of leather as the gold ones from Sundance. I could wear them forever right out of the box. I am in love with Kork-Ease again and of course Zappos for getting them to me the next day. Ladies, beware of the black and the buff colored Kork-Ease. They are not the same leather as some of the others. Love my new Kork-Ease!

Love, love, love these. As others have noted, they are a nice nostalgic throwback to the style we were wearing in the 70's, but updated with some additional height, cool colors (the Grigio is a perfect neutral for me), and a pretty cork laminate platform. Because the platform is quite high, they are comfy for standing and walking for long periods despite the height.

I'd also recommend: Naot, Dansko, Sanita

I ordered these shoes in both 8 and 9 (I'm solid 8 1/2). Alas, the 8s were too short and I think I could have used the 9 length, but they were so much too wide. If you are a half size and have narrow feet, you likely won't be able to wear these. It is really too bad because they are so comfortable. Thank you Zappos for helping me try to find shoes for my long skinny feet!

Love, love, love these sandals. I had the neutral coloured ones last summer and wore them constantly. They are quite comfortable and give you height without the tilt because of the tall platform. They look super cute super cute with jeans or dresses. Got the blue this year and it is a perfect pop of colour yet goes with tons of items in my wardrobe.

I'd also recommend: Dansko, Sanita, Rockport

The magic wand of Zappos strikes again. Ordered yesterday got it today - woo hoo! I love Zappos! As for these shoes, I'm a true size 9 (but not sure because I have 8 or 9.5 shoes) but I got size 10 on this, a half-size larger but it's okay. Love it! Thinking of getting another one in black. Thanks again Zappos! You rock!

I'd also recommend: ugg, northface, rayban,fitflops
