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'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 these shoes, but could not keep them. The uppers were very big on my size 10 shoe and my foot slipped all over the foot bed making the shoe rub and lack a secure feeling. There is also no arch at all. I did find them to be of high quality and look just as I remembered my pair in 9th grade!

I am so disappointed. Was so excited to be getting these as they look just like the ones I loved in the 70's! They are cute as can be but too narrow an hurt the small bunion on my left foot. I am a size 7, the length was perfect.

Typically wear 8.5. With no half sizes, got the 8. Definitely too small - toes want to slide right off the front end. Pretty sure a 9 would be too sloppy. I ordered the Ava 2.0. Hoping for better luck.

These were great when reissued about 10 years ago, but the newer made in China version is terrible. Leather doesn't stretch, give, anything, and neither does the footbed!

So cute. So painful. Sharp edges on the criss cross over toes. Cute as these are, I swapped for the soft leather.
