This is a great mild/warm weather shoe. It's essentially a dressier sandal. You should definitely get one size smaller than what you wear (since you don't really wear socks with the shoe). The shoe (and laces) initially took some getting used to (because I never thought I'd wear boat shoes), but the shoe ultimately grew on me, and I get great use out of it because it is so versatile.

The dark brown color is made in Indonesia, unlike the Sahara color which is made in China (which I purchased last summer). The Chinese made-shoe is of noticeably higher quality. If you look at the pictures you will see that some of the shoes have "sperry" imprinted on the eyelets - it seems that those are the ones of higher quality (though I'm not totally sure). Would recommend ordering a couple different colors to compare.

I gave these to my husband as a gift to replace a pair that is now worn out. They fit him just fine. The only thing I found was the actual Amaretto color is darker than I expected.

I wore my last Sperrys so long they wore out after years of use, liked them so much I ordered another pair. Great look, comfortable, and will last a while, definitely would recommend!

Ordered these for my 17 yr old son. They are his 4th pair (growing feet!) of sperry shoes. The fit is great and the color is exactly what is pictured online. The craftsmanship is excellent!
