I love these shoes, a hard-to-find combination of funky and comfortable. Be warned, however, that they are very narrow. My foot is on the narrow side of a medium width and these shoes are borderline too narrow. I wear a 9 1/2 or a 10, depending on the maker, and I ordered a 10 -- they could also do with an eighth inch more length -- one centimeter shorter and they'd be too small. Also, you should probably have skinny ankles -- the elastic band across the top of the foot is very snug and I have said skinny ankles. Unfortunately they don't make 11s in this style or I may have exchanged them.

Last year I got the tan size 5 and lusted for the red but couldn't find it. When Zappos notified me that red was restocked, I ordered immediately. Shoe woe: size 5 is 1/8 shorter and narrower than last year's 5, and size 6 is 1.25" longer, mis-sized? Gorgeous color and a true red, but I'm bewildered that these 3 sizes have such a huge variance.

I love these shoes! Many compliments from others who look at them like, wow, how did you ever find a shoe with a heel that you can really walk in! Narrow feet people, these are the shoes for you! I constantly have a hard time finding sandals that won't fly off my narrow feet and look cute (not orthopedic), so these definitely fit the bill. I love them and have them in beige & black. The only thing is that they are not a quick slide in shoe; once you're in, you're in!

Very pleased with this shoe. Purchased because my heels crack if in sandals all summer long. I am wearing them a lot. They are instantly comfortable and light. Good for feet with bumps and lumps, i.e. bunions, arthritis, I would say.

They are the same shoe as Vivanz and both are terrific shoes. I've had five surgeries on my right foot and its difficult to find comfortable shoes. These shoes are stylish, comfortable and fun. These are the Combat Cocktail shoes you might have heard about. I have 10 pairs in different styles and colors.

These are the most casual and comfortable shoes. I have problem wearing heels unless they are chunky. These shoes gives you the steadiness without compromising height. Wish I had the black one!

These are great walking sandals! I do a lot of walking when traveling but don\'t like to wear sneakers or ugly shoes, and it\'s hard to find cute sandals that are also comfortable after many, many hours. I bought these for a trip to Mexico City where I knew I would be doing a lot of walking, and I was very happy with them. Wore for many days without prior breaking-in and did not get any blisters or foot-aches. They felt a little on the narrow side, but were still comfortable. I wear a size 10 and often shoes can look really ungainly (Frankenstein-ish) at that size but these were fine. They are definitely dressier than most walking shoes and did double duty to go out at night. Great sandals!

These are my most comfortable shoes. They get lots of compliments. I can wear them either for dress-up or casual. I have them in black, beige and red. I would buy as many colors as available. This shoe is a real winner.

I got my first Vivanz San Miguel three years ago, one pair of black ones. I wear them as party shoes and unexpectedly, had to mountain climb in them one time. They are fabulous! I have no other shoe that is so comfortable and versatile. I now have them in black, navy blue, red, and tan all summer. It is my fate to live in a northern climate and therefore cannot wear them all winter. My great fear is as Murphy's Law is written, that something that is so good will be discontinued or "improved". Please keep making Vivanz San Miguel in the same as the last! They are the best.

FANTASTIC - I saw these sandals on a woman that I met in Costa Rica although she was from the US. I had to ask her where she got these and she told me. I have gotten more compliments and although I am tall 5'7" tall...I adore these shoes and even my fashion conscience sister loves them. They are comfortable and I wear them all the time. I live in Florida. Enjoy!!!!

These are excellent for comfort plus style, given the little heel adds extra pizzaz. Goes with all casual apparel. I am actually a 7.5, so I ordered the shoes in a 7 and 8. The 7 was better for length but too narrow so I kept the 8. The ankle strap and heel stabilize the foot. I will order in other colors when you stock them. Highly recommend.

I love Vivanz shoes - I own four pairs of Vivanz shoes. I love the look and they are very comfortable. I'm hoping that they will come in my size at Zappos. Please stock 8 or 9s in the future. The shoes are cute and hip.

Since these don't come in half sizes, and I sometimes fit in a half size down, I went to the lower vs. higher size. I wouldn't want these any smaller. But, regardless of that, these are very attractive and comfortable sandals. They look great on your feet and can go dressy or casual very well.

Too cute for words. Snug fit which has loosened slightly; they were too tight at first, thought I would have to return but, happily, they are here to stay. Really good support with the ankle wrap.

Love these shoes. A little edgy, but flattering. Also, very comfortable. My feet are a bit narrow, but I have a bunion so finding comfy yet fashionable shoes is a challenge. These are both.

I have ordered the original San Miguel in the past but these were much too narrow as compared to the former ones I have ordered. Maybe they were not made by the same company?

These are such great shoes for my narrow feet -- the first summer shoes I've had where I wasn't worried about sliding and tripping around. They are strapped onto your feet like ace bandages. Very comfy. I have them in the black and the red -- I get lots of compliments on them, the red ones especially, and I wear the black ones so much that now in their third season, the heels have cracked slightly underneath the ball of the foot. I will get another black pair -- only regret that I didn't buy them in brown when they had them. They look great on my feet and great with everything.

I love these shoes. A bit of a heel, a bit edgy and a lot comfortable. I'm counting on them for an upcoming euro trip. As others have noted -- they do run narrow, which was good for me. I ordered my usual size but beware that doesn't mean the same in all Vivanz styles; I've tried others and fit was all over the place but these are great!
