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 AA width shoe I ordered is wider than another medium width shoe I ordered at the same time. Also the strap that buckles is so long and there are no holes to secure -- the holes run out way at the beginning. Unfortunately for me both shoes were too wide.

I got them in a 9.5N and they were a little small and quite tight, so I went up to a 10M and they were way too loose. So I then tried a 10N thinking that'd be perfect, and nope. Still too loose. The lengths of the straps seemed to be quite inconsistent, making the width of the shoe irrelevant.

This sandal was so cute! I loved it but the strap on the side left my pinky toe hanging out in space! (I have short pinky toes.) I was so sorry to have to return them. The 9WW was nice...but it was a 40 not a 39...so it was a little bit longer than I had planned. However, I love the width and will keep an eye out for this brand in another style. Zappos has a great return policy and their customer service totally rocks!

So comfy and very cute. However, my foot is a bit wider than can fit in the sandal. My pinky toes were not contained inside the strap, so they kept coming out. I was very sad that I had to return them.

Extremely disappointed. All reviews I read said the shoe ran small and ran narrow. I wear an 8 S the 8 narrow was so wide I could probably put both feet in it. The Bass Margie is soft and great looking but wide. If you have a truly narrow foot, don't bother!

Even though this shoe came in narrow, the fit for a narrow foot was terrible. Maybe it was the wrong style, but it would have helped if the ankle strap came all around the ankle. I am not able to wear these shoes.

These were just about perfect: great comfort, made solid, width options. The one major problem is they swished with every step. The foam in the sole of the shoe would take in air and pooof-swooosh on every step. At first I thought it was because they were brand new. Sadly, after repeated wearing, it never went away. It drove me crazy.

Width is fine, length is fine - but the height is not. When I wear these shoes, the straps stick up a good half inch over the top of my foot. Only the back strap can be tightened, and I'd have to drill an additional hole to get that tight enough. But that wouldn't keep my feet from flopping around in these. I purchased 10AA and I don't think a change in size would help.

Just like Clarks, I think Bass considers narrows an A rather than a AA. Too wide for me.

Ordered a 7 narrow size (1/2 size smaller due to review comments) and the front straps were not fitted enough to support my foot on the sole. Needed to return since no Slim width available in this sandal.

I ordered a 'narrow' shoe. This shoe runs way too wide for a narrow foot. I am so disappointed because the leather straps are very soft.

I would have kept them if the buckle was not so far forward. It should not be part of the top. People are correct that you should order 1/2 size smaller.

Love the color, design, cushiony support & width. Though I found the strap a bit short for wide width feet but, they are leather they will stretch with wear (I hope).

I read with interest that this sandal was narrow as I have a narrow foot. It is, rather, extremely wide. With the strap in the tightest position, the fit was very, very loose. My foot slid out the front of the sandal. They have good comfort, and I had hoped to walk all around an international destination in them.

Shame on G.H. Bass for such a cheap imitation of a once awesome shoe. I wore these in the 1980's and loved them. Was so excited when I found they were still being made. Received them today and was so disgusted. I had it on my foot about 15 seconds and put them back in the box to be returned. Cheaply made. Cheap materials.

These fit well. They have a nice cushiony footbed, good arch support, and look great. I am a happy camper and it is not always this easy to find something that fits and looks good.

I found the soles to be too heavy and inflexible. The scratchy straps were fighting to keep them on my feet with each step. I have worn them once and will not wear them again. I tried adjusting the straps but it did not help. The whooshing sound is no good either. Epic fail :/

Nice enough looking shoes, but the fit can be problematic. I ordered the size I always order, but the ankle strap does not fit tightly enough to make them stay on, even at its tightest. I will have to poke a hole in it to allow myself to wear them. However, they are comfortable.

This is a very comfortable sandal right out of the box, if you tweak the size. I normally wear 8M, but this was extremely narrow (couldn't even get my foot into it) and somewhat short. The 8.5 wide fits perfectly. I bought these to wear on a trip to Europe, knowing it would be hot and I'd be doing a lot of walking. They were the perfect purchase.

I originally got these for travel because I could wear them all day and even in the evening with a dress. Love these sandals for golf. I have some white strap marks but no ugly white feet. Comfort for 18 holes. I have wide feet and they are very comfortable. Non-slip on the golf course even without soft-spikes. You could make a fortune if you put spikes on them. Everyone at the club thinks they are great looking. They really last. I'm about to order my 4th pair, even though I have been wearing these sandals for over 10 years.

After becoming so sick of ballet flats and other sandals/shoes with just a sliver of a sole, I decided to hunt down my favorite sandals I wore as a kid. They are perfect! Just as I remember. A cushy footbed, a thick enough sole where you don't feel every little rock in the sidewalk. They actually feel sturdy. The bed is wide enough that your toes can spread naturally, no squishy pointy toe. The leather straps have not rubbed or cut. Love these.
