Love, love, love these shoes! I had bunion surgery and have constant foot pain, but these are always comfortable and the only heels I can wear aside form clogs. Great fit, great style. Pricey but well made.

I've been buying one or 2 pairs of Kork-ease annually since they reissued them about 4 years ago for a total of about 6 pairs. I need a new one every year because I wear them all the time! They've always been great and comfortable. The made in China ones this year are horrible. The leather straps seem made of iron and no give to them at all - like having your feet in a vise grip. The 'padded insole' doesn't cover the whole footpad, so parts of the foot end up hanging off the padded part (which is kind of hard to begin with) and it's painful. Worst shoes ever. Please start making them in Brazil again, or change the leather and footpad design or something.

Like so many others on here, I used to wear these in the 70s (they cost less then!). Because they are cool looking and have a great platform, I wanted to love these and wear them again. However, since my teen years, my feet have changed drastically and these shoes in the medium (B) width can never accommodate my wide little hobbit feet. I wore these for an hour on the carpet the day I got them and they were excruciating across my toes. I tried again on the carpet for another hour the next day, but no go. These, unfortunately, will never fit me again. If you have a wide foot, think twice about getting these and they are just not going to stretch enough after wearing.... so sad.

Perfect adorable sandal! Takes me right back to junior high in 1974! Every time I wear them I get tons of compliments and they are so comfortable!

Just right! Kork-ease makes these in a lower wedge (Myrna) and a higher one (Bette) but this is the original and is just right. The lower ones look a little frumpy and the higher ones are too hard to walk in (though they look great standing still!) AVA is a winner. I wear a 7.5 usually and the size 7 is a perfect fit.

I'd also recommend: Cordani, Dansko

These shoes remind me of actress Nancy Stephen when she wore shoes like these with argyle socks on a movie when she was driving a Camaro.
