I was worried that these would not be cute on me. I am 20 and needed some good sandals that would not make my feet die while I am backpacking around Europe this summer. My other friends were going to fork over a lot of money for some Birkenstocks but when I got these they changed their minds. They are so comfortable! the cushion on the bottom is amazing and has not worn down at all and I have worn them a bunch already. They are actually super cute too. I was not necessarily looking for cute, more for comfort. I was really pleasantly surprised by how nicely they go with a little floral dress or shorts or something. I definitely recommend them. To add to it, they are amazing for how inexpensive they are; not to mention, they showed up at my house in only three days! I wear an 8½ but can sometimes squeeze my feet into the occasional 8. When it comes to sandals, I was not really sure. After watching the video I kind of assumed they ran a little big, and I got an 8 and they fit perfectly. The straps were not uncomfortable and tight like some sandals are before you wear them in either. These are just all around really good shoes. I am really glad that I gave them the benefit of the doubt when I was not sure because they turned out to be perfect.

As much as I wanted these to work, they didn't. My feet are somewhat wide, so I got them in a W. When they arrived, they fit like a M. The Wide is not wide at all. I was able to squeeze my feet in but my pinkie toe would fall out. I would definitely recommend going up a width if you are concerned (i.e. if your feet are narrow, you can probably fit medium). I can also understand how, as previous reviewers have mentioned, the leather straps seems hard and sharp. The decorative lines embossed in the straps are also more prominent in person. But in spite of all this, I think the worst part about this sandal was by far the SOUND. The way the sole is cushioned makes a very noticeable whooshing noise with every step (imagine the sound of sitting on those cushioned toilet seats -- it's just like that). I know that not every sandal makes the noise, but both of mine did (compared to my Bass Joanne, only one of them makes the noise). It's really not tolerable, not to mention they didn't fit, so I had to return these. Sad!

This was not very narrow and had to return it. It was wide enough that it flopped on my feet. Certainly looked cute enough.

I wasn't sure these would fit, sometimes I wear a 5, sometimes a 5 1/2, they didn't have size 5, so I ordered 5 1/2 and they seem to fit. Whether or not they will last is another question. I had to make them as tight as possible so they wouldn't slip around on my feet, but they do seem fairly comfortable so will see. They weren't real expensive so I'm not expecting much.

These are fantastic shoes! I bought them due to a dress code change at work and am so glad I did. I can't even feel that I'm wearing them, the straps never bother my feet, and they are extremely comfortable for a full day of teaching (always standing).

I have not been having a lot of luck ordering sandals this year. I have a wide foot and find that a lot of wides are not wide enough. Very happy with the Bass Margie sandal. Very comfortable!

I ordered these cute sandals for my mother. The footbed matched her narrow feet perfectly but the straps were much too long. So the sandals were too loose for comfort and must be returned.

Although I wanted to love these sandals, when I took them out of the box they were not a wide shoe even though the box said wide. So they are going back.

I am so thankful that Zappos carries wide styles of Bass sandals! I have not been able to find that elsewhere online. And of course Zappos has free shipping. These sandals have stiff leather, but they are relatively comfortable. They run true to size. Thanks!

I found these new ones looser than the same ones that I bought sometime back of the same size, style, color and Bass. So they are identical except these seemed bigger in the heel strap. The heel strap is now too big for me and my feet haven't shrunk.

Brands I'd also recommend: Maybe Clark? I don't know. Earth shoe, but they are more expensive and that was many many years ago.

These seem like nice shoes, but even in the N width they cannot cope with my freakishly narrow (4A) heels: I would have had to punch at least two extra holes into the strap, with the buckle ending up on top of my foot rather than on the side. So back they go.

The last time I ordered this model, they had more cushioning. The sandals look nice, but I think I really need a AAA instead of just AA. My feet "slosh" a bit, but I think they look fine & are comfy enough.

Nice looking sandals, good price. As with all adjustable sandals, be sure to adjust the straps according to your foot, not by counting holes in the strap. Once I got the adjustment correct, the shoes fit perfectly. The only problem I have is the front outside strap hits my small toes just the wrong way so I have to be careful that I don't damage my little toes. All in all, a sexy shoe for limited periods of time (i.e., dinner out, a party, etc.) but not for wearing all day shopping, etc. I previously had the Bass Sunjuns with no heel strap but with the thong between my toes. They were great, too, but flapped a lot when I walked. So I wanted to try a sandal with a heel strap. For this price, try both!

Well cushioned and very cute. However, wasn't as wide as i expected for a 8 1/2 W, which causes the straps to fit across the pinky toe in an uncomfortable way.

I really hoped this white sandal would work. I wear narrow shoes and have a terrible time finding those that fit. These are too wide to begin with. The buckle rubs and the leather has an edge. It would wear down in time but meanwhile, I could anticipate blisters. The cushion feels great but I just slid right out the front. I already have the other Bass white thong sandal that will go to Goodwill: the thong is so thick that it hurts.

Super comfortable. Size is exact (8), so if you want a little more length, order half a size larger (8.5). However, it is fine for me. Super fast shipping! Thank you so much.

Really wanted to like these shoes. Thought they were really cute on and very comfortable but my feet slipped through the front as I walked so that eventually my toes were touching the floor. I have really narrow and flat feet and got the AA narrow width (loved that they had that option) a half size smaller than my usual size 8 (since other reviews said they run long). The length fit (although I think I would have been ok with my typical size) but the straps in the front had so much room underneath them that I could fit my fingers in between the straps and my foot. This is probably why my feet were sliding out. Not sure if I got a defective pair or if that is how they are supposed to be. Total bummer because I liked everything else about them and really need some comfortable sandals that aren't hideous for hoofing it around the city.

Very nice sandals -- cute, well made. I had to return them because they were too wide for my narrow foot. The foot bed was fine, but the straps were way too big across the front of my foot!

These sandals were my second attempt at an everyday sandal that was comfortable to walk in. I decided to go with this old standard since Bass is a good name. The sandal lasted only 3 months until the inner sole has pulled up from the outer sole. I'll buy another pair of sandals today, but they won't be these.

These shoes are really comfortable and fairly stylish for a comfort sandal, I would say. However, they are so loud when walking. With every step you take, it sounds like air is being squished out of them. Outside on the street, it is not overwhelmingly noticeable, but in the office, I felt self-conscious wearing them to the point where I have now stopped reaching for them. Bummer because they are so comfy.

I've had multiple pairs of these shoes in the past, but it has been a while. I decided to order them again for an upcoming vacation. Wow! The footbed seemed to be the correct size, but the straps were all super loose. I thought it was a manufacturing glitch but both pairs (the white and the cinnaman) fit like this. My sister-in-law, also on the vacation, had the same sandals and they appeared to fit normally. Perhaps the factory had a glitch happen with a number of pairs. My past pairs were 9 N and these were 10 N. I know that can make them a bit wider but, as I wrote earlier, the footbed fit. 10 N is my current size and sometimes 10.5 N.

They are cute. They are comfortable. I had to give them away. They make that squish sound. I could not get the squish to stop. I wore them a bunch. I got them wet. The squish was still there. I can't deal with the squish.

Even though they are marked as a 7N, they are not true to width. They did feel very comfortable and I wish that I could have kept them.

I often have problems with getting blisters from sandal straps, with an extended breaking-in period. I didn't have that at all with these - the straps are soft and gently stretchy, so they don't rub or hurt even my apparently very sensitive feet. (That stretch may mean that I have to punch some extra holes to tighten the buckle later, but that's ok.) I wear these to walk to work in the city, but I'd carefully consider before using them as my sole vacation shoes or something like that. They're good for every day, but don't have quite the arch support or ruggedness that I'd want for something more than a walking commute. Cute, though, and I get lots of compliments.

So cute, but way too narrow. I wear a 7W normally, but I read they were long so I ordered 61/2W. The length was fine, but they were still too narrow. Also the strap that is suppose to go across the pinky toe didn't so my toe stuck out! I exchanged then for a 61/2WW with better results, but still had an issue with the pinky toe strap so I am sending them back. And they were just barely wide enough at the WW size.
