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.

I love this style. I have few other pairs in different colors. The straps that go across the toe on this particular pair are really tight. They aren't as comfortable as my previous pairs. Am debating on returning them.

I wear a 9.5 and need a 9.5 in this shoe. The 9 is too tight across my foot and the 10 is too long for my foot.

I have been wearing Kork-Ease for the last five years and always receive compliments. I replaced my older black Ava's because they simply wore out. I wear them in summer, adding height, which looks great with a maxi dress and in the fall with black opaque stockings. They're lightweight and comfortable! Love my Kork-Ease!

I adore these shoes! I am slightly confused about the reviews urging buyers to purchase one size down, though. I am a size 6.5 medium with just the slightest of bunions from years of dance. I ordered a size 6.0 and couldn't even get my foot into the shoe. I exchanged for a size 7.0 and am very pleased. The size 7.0 was definitely the way to go. They do take a bit of time (2-3 wearings) to break them in, but after that they are heavenly. They give you the look of a high platform or wedge with the comfort of a flat.

I'd also recommend: Dansko, Korks by Kork-Ease

These are my second pair of this exact shoe. I wore them out because I wear them ALL THE TIME. They are my "go to" shoe living on the coast of SC. My strap finally blew out on my first pair after 4 years and I immediately ordered another pair from Zappos which arrived the very next day! So thankful for Next Day delivery and a great pair of shoes!
