Love these shoes! A little pricey,but nice to be able to change size of sandal tightness at all places, encases your foot swells up. Very cute also, my first pair of wolky's not my last!I did order a size smaller.

These sandals are delightful, but the high strap caused severe blistering on both my feet. That was six weeks ago, and I still have purple marks and sensitivity where the blisters were. I need to wear my cute yellow sandals with Band-Aids now, but I still receive compliments almost every time I wear them. The footpad is extremely comfortable and worked for me right out-of-the-box. I wear size 10 1/2 to 11 and ordered a 42. Perfect fit. I think that if the manufacturer would add a bit of padding or leather underneath the higher strap, it would solve the problem. I believe that the style works because the color is placed around the edges and across the toe box, but not across the straps. I would not change that. I would just add some softer material; then, for me anyway, they would be perfect in every way. I think I will see a shoemaker to find out if he can do this for me. The little leather dot of color on the ankle is genius -- it's adorable. Thank you Zappos, for your incredible service. You're in a class by yourselves.

The Wolky Jewel should be considered Wolky's flagship shoe style. With 3 adjustments available, it should be comfortable for almost any kind of foot. It provides a bit of height, but is a good walking show. I wear mine all year - with socks in cold weather, barefoot in hot weather. The newest colorful leather is a blast.

Can't say enough good things about Jewel. I wore my last pair for 6 years before they gave out and they were comfortable until the end. Want one in every color. Amazingly, they fit my 7.5 (left) and 8.0 (right) EE feet (with sky high insteps/arches)! I got the 39 this time rather than 38 and found that to be best for me.

I bought these shoes on a fanciful whim because of the vibrant color. By far, they are the most comfortable shoes I own and look chic with pants of various lengths. The front strap covers the disfigured parts of my toes and the Velcro adjusts the width for comfort. All in all, a great shoe.

First, this is the first time I have ever written a review but I felt compelled to. Secondly, I love this shoe. When I looked at he picture I felt the shoe looked clunky but when I received it...Wow, I love the color. The thickness of the sole makes the shoe that more sturdy and resilient for wear. Lastly, if you have a high instep these shoes will mold to your feet but I do not have a high instep and it took a little getting used to, I had to break them in a bit but once I did, Whoa! The shoe molded to my feet and the fit and comfort is wonderful. I am 5'11 I wear a USA size 12, so I chose the EU size 44 - true to size. Perfect fit.

Wonderful shoe, incredibly comfortable, but too high a heel for me. Hated to return it, but not worth a broken ankle.

Well. This is it as far as I'm concerned. The most comfortable sandal ever. I need thick cushioned soles that are not as unstable as platforms. These have remarkable cushioning while also being easy to walk it. They're wonderfully adjustable, too. They don't look as "clunky" on as they do in the photo. Don't even think about the price -- worth every cent. Sizing seemed a tad bit off -- they're a little wide compared to length. But of course Zappos makes it easy to exchange sizes as needed.

Absolutely love these shoes both for walking and for fashion...I got yellow snakeskin and love them. I just ordered 2 pair for my cousin who has a movement disorder and she loves them. They give great support, a good base with arch support and look great.

I was quite hesitant about purchasing the Wolky sandals since they're so pricey but, true to the old adage, "You get what you pay for" -- in this case, Comfort and Style! I have severe plantar fasciitis and can wear these shoes all day without foot pain.

I purchased my first pair of Wolky sandals recently. The sticker price was a bit of a shock but I cannot beat the comfort. I have a high arch. I also have extensive arthritis in my big toes from gripping Birkenstocks for 12 years. The big toes simply no longer bend. Because of that, I need to have a rocker sole shoe. Many styles of Danskos have rocker soles, and I wore them for years, but they are so heavy that my feet were in pain at the end of the day. I found a lot of Dansko styles to be tippy because of the loose heel. I am not particularly in love with the nylon straps on my new Wolkys, but I know they are not going to stretch out like natural leather stretches, which is a plus. I was told they run small, but the size 38 which I normally wear works perfectly and I like all the adjustable straps for a secure fit. This will not be my last pair of Wolkys.

My fourth pair of Wolky Jewels! I have worn most of the others out, even though they have replaceable footbeds. The soles of the shoes do eventually wear down, but I have walked five miles and more in these shoes without problems. the tree-way adjustability is key, especially when it's really hot and your feet start to swell up. I don't much care for the faux snakeskin, which has limited my color choices recently. But I'll keep wearing 'em, because they really fit, I get lots of compliments on them, and even at their high price, they are worth it. The website tells you to order a size up: that is exactly correct. I wear 38 in Dansko, 39 in Wolky.

I love these shoes! I love all Wolky Jewel shoes. They are very comfortable for walking and come in lots of colors. I have flat arches and very arthritic feet so comfort is my number one priority with shoes. These shoes are adjustable in the forefoot and heel area so they can fit any foot. I usually wear a 9.5 wide shoe and I get these shoes in a size 41.

Brands I'd also recommend: some new balance sneakers

I first purchased this shoe years ago when I noticed all the shoe salespeople at Nordstrom had them on. I am so grateful to the salesperson who insisted I try them despite my double wide foot; I am now ordering my third pair, I love them. I have double wide feet with a high instep, torn acl in knee and bad ankles, and I can wear this shoe because of the adjustability and wide bottom. (I do wish they would make them in wide though, it is a stretch to get the straps to connect on the velcro). It is also the only platform shoe I can wear because unlike other platforms that have a high degree of slope, this is the same height across so it puts no stress on the forefoot and ankles. Why don't other manufacturers do this more often? I love the shock absorption in this shoe, ankles and knees don't tire from pounding the pavement, and the style is cute and versatile, suitable for wearing with tank dresses, jeans or skirts.

I love this sandal! I've had so many people stop me and ask about them. I have three pairs and am ready to add another pair to my collection. The one complaint I have is that I have a pair with a snake finish which I could not get a spot out of. The smooth leather seems to wear better, but I love the look of the snake.

I am so thankful that I bought these shoes. I had extensive foot surgery last year and they are the first sandals I can wear in total comfort - no pain! They are so stylish and the orange color goes with many of my outfits! I broke down and bought the black patent leather ones too!

These are the best! I have a bunion and narrow feet. I refuse to wear size nine sneakers when I travel to cities. Bought my first pair before a trip to Spain and walked in perfect comfort for two weeks. Just returned from 12 days in Eastern Europe, where they conquered the cobblestones with ease. I wear them with heavy socks in the winter, and find they handle the rain with ease. I am so pleased to have discovered these wonderful shoes!

Great and comfy. Bought these after reading the reviews. First of all the Scarlett leather r not Scarlett at all. They r orange,just as they appear in the photo-which is what I was hoping for, as I wanted orange! :-) I had bunion surgery and hammer toe surgery on my left foot fall of 2012-ever since then I have to buy a larger shoe; and I have allot of heel pain. These sandals r the most comfortable sandals I have ever worn! Wish they weren't so pricey, so I could buy more colors!

In looking at this shoe a few months ago, I found it wasn't available right then, so I asked to be notified when it was. Later got notified by email...placed my order...which was such an easy process with Zappos. This is my first order with them and I was surprised at how smoothly everything went. Received my order in 4 days if I recall. Everything was perfect...the fit, the information contained with shipment. Very pleased with Zappos.

They're comfy, I wear them most of the time, and now want in other colors. They fit my orthotics... still a bit clunky but then that's life when your feet aren't petite.
