This is a gorgeous shoe, I was a little worried as I had concerns that the ankle strap would make my short legs look stumpier but this is not the case at all. It looks lovely on - casual elegance. I have a long wide foot and chose a half size up, perfect fit, in fact it makes my wide foot look slim. You do have to take a moment to work your foot into the shoe but that is no big deal. A lovely casual shoe for summer, resort wear, shopping or lunches with friends.

There are manifold problems with this shoe, the first being the description of the origin (Spain); these shoes are actually made in China. The sole is indescribably deficient, and the jute material extends down slightly further than the impossibly thin layer of opaque plastic that I have generously referred to as the sole. This is obviously problematic; were I to have worn these shoes prior to escorting them to a shoemaker, and liberating amount of money to have a proper sole put on them, the jute would have frayed quite immediately. I very much regret having bothered with this necessary repair, since the shoes are insufferably uncomfortable, and ought to have been returned to Zappos posthaste. A short trip to the grocery store found my toes in terrible pain, and produced blisters from which I am still recovering. I would think twice about purchasing these shoes.

These are the BEST investment shoe. Totally worth the money. They are sensible and comfortable because the wedge is not too high (I'm 5'6" so don't like to go too high with heels). And the elastic band is also comfy and will last longer than a buckle. I wear these with everything from shorts to maxis, to summer cocktail dresses, to work shift dresses. I receive compliments every day.

Adorable shoe, very flattering on. Fits true to size. I don't think it would be especially comfortable for extended walking, though, given the texture of the footbed, which is a bit scratchy.

Uncomfortable and more narrow than the my black pair even though they are the same size. The bottom of the shoe looks cheaply glued together. They look pretty but not well made on the bottom, the top of the shoe is fine.

Cute shoe, and makes my foot look smaller, which is a huge plus! They were comfortable for a while, unfortunately, had to walk all over downtown and feet were hurting by the end. I will still keep them, though, and just try to wear them when I don't have to walk miles!

I had these shoes a few years ago. I was thrilled when I put them on and found them comfortable...at first. The jute insole was so uncomfortable to walk even a few blocks. It felt like it was tearing up the sole of my foot. My solution was to buy insoles to cut and put in the footbed part of the insole so the jute would still show under my high arch. It made the front of the shoe tighter but I powered on, because I thought the shoes were so cute. Then I began to notice that the sole of the shoe, being so thin, made it feel like I was walking directly on the concrete. I couldn't wear the shoes very often, so it was a surprise that the sole began to wear away and the jute on the bottom was what was touching the ground. I brought them out each summer that I kept them and hoped that year would be better, but it was not. Finally, they got wet and the canvas shrunk. The harder material that served as a lining to help the canvas keep its cute shape did not shrink and became lumpy. Now the lining was cutting into my toes! The only part of the shoe that remained comfortable was the elastic around the ankle and I finally gave up on them. It made me sad because I loved how they looked on my foot.
