Can't wait to wear these this summer! Fit was good, true to size and the footbed is cushioned and comfortable. The leather straps are a little stiff but I'm sure with some wear and warm weather the leather will soften up. This is a great, minimal, stylish alternative to plastic flip flops that look tired after two wears! Great with shorts, capris or a casual sundress!

This is a good looking sandal. I ordered the black with brown sole in a 9 (usually wear an 8 1/2 in flats) and the 9 fits like an 8 1/2. The problem came in, for me, with the inside strap on the right foot just digging into the top of my foot and hurting after 3 steps. I've kept my share of shoes that are slightly uncomfortable for the sake of fashion, but it just wasn't possible. The left foot was fine. Go figure. My feet look the same and the sandal didn't look defective. It is a bit narrow on the base, but I expected that and that wasn't why, so I'm not sure how else to advise except that if you want to take a chance, the price is very good and the quality seems great, too. I was hoping to replace some Bernardo Medieval sandals that are about a Benjamin higher in price. I'm sorry it just didn't work out, for me.

Great sandals!! These sandals are great. I LOVE the look. Nice quality braided leather with a brassy (not super yellow and tacky) ring. They are a bit uncomfortable right now, but I just got them, so I am thinking that I will adjust. Even if I don't, I'll still wear them because they're so great looking. They look great with jeans or nice pants/skirts. Very versatile - dressed up or down.

Ocean Minded Manhattan - If you are a half size definitely go UP to the whole size. I'm a 7.5 and ordered an 8 and I'm glad I did, a 7 would have been too small (typically I order down to a whole size if half sizes are unavailable). Look great, definitely can tell that will take a little to break them in. Overall great product!

Super comfortable! As always, Zappos delivered another quality item to me. The shoe is exactly as described. The Zappos service is always excellent!!! I will continue to purchase my shoes at Zappos. I also tell my friends and customer about Zappos and their service.

I LOVE THIS - I have a pair in both colors and get compliments on these sandals every time I wear them. They are light weight and pack easily. The ring isn’t too bulky and the straps have a little give but don’t stretch too much. I highly recommend 'em.

This sandal looks beautiful and has a nice flexible sole [obviously without arch support]. However, it is too narrow for my foot. It would be great for those of you with straight, slim feet.

While I love the look of this sandal, it's simple and casual. I'm having a heck of a time 'breaking them in' that metal ring and the leather stitching on the bottom side of it is constantly rubbing on the top of my foot and tearing it up. I have the right size as moving up one would be too big. I just hope the next time I wear them they are more comfortable.

Very cute shoe. They do run a little bit on the small side. The first time I wore them they were a little stiff, but not that uncomfortable. Nice and casual, but can also be worn with long summer dresses.

They are adorable and fit perfectly. They gave me a blister on the top of my foot where the strap is the first time I wore them. After that they were geat. I walked all over Santa Cruz Boardwalk this weekend in them and they were great!

Cute but need gradual wear. A nice looking sandal. Needs some time to 'break them in' for sure... I wore them around the house with band-aids or socks at first (and glad I did! Takes the skin off the top of your foot otherwise. After that I could wear them for short periods of time. Hopefully that will no longer be an issue eventually.) Also, I went a half size bigger than usual and they fit perfectly.

Flip flop - This is a cute flip flop but not leather and not very comfortable. The strap hits the part of your foot that causes blistering after walking a short distance. Cute for a trip via car but not on foot!

Great shoe - I needed a nicer looking flip flop style shoe for a beach wedding and ordered these after finding nothing in the stores- they look great and fit pretty well- the only thing is that the tops can rub on the top of your feet a little bit, however with a little breaking in they were fine! Another bonus is that some of the proceeds went towards marine animals, etc.

Cute Shoe! Cute shoe. I ordered a size 6 (I'm usually a 6.5) and it was a little small but I think the 7 would have been too big. The braided straps aren't leather as the Zappos description says but they're super cute anyway! And as always, how can you beat Zappos prices and free overnight shipping?!

Very attractive looking sandal. But if you are looking for a comfortable sandal, this is not it. The straps are not leather, therefore are not easily stretched. I think if I keep wearing them, they may break in eventually.

I write this as my toes bleed from the strap stitching. Very cute shoes, but after 3 days of wearing them and trying to wear them in, that is the result. I even tried wrapping the straps in moleskin. I don\'t think I can stick these out and am returning them. Maybe a larger size would have been better, but I will look elsewhere.

Black is Brown. These are great shoes for everyday or for going out! They are fairly comfortable once you break them in. The only serious downfall I have is that the blacks are a dark brown.
