This is a great sandal. I have a very narrow foot, so I like the fact that more holes can be punched when the leather stretches. It is comfortable to stand and walk in.

I was delighted with these shoes when I first received them - they were very comfortable, basic/classic in appearance, and well-priced. After about a month of wearing them, the leather heel strap ripped in half. Other reviewers had commented that this might happen, but I took the risk when I shouldn't have...

I bought these shoes at the end of the season and barely wore them. I pulled them out on the first warm day of Spring, and the heel strap broke: it did not come unglued, but broke in two pieces. Also, they make an irritating whooshing sound when you walk as the air escapes from the insole. They were really comfortable, and fit true to size - for a minute.

Cute sandals, but couldn't even get my foot in the 6WW - these were more of a C width, not a 2E. Length seemed to be correct for a 6. Seemed to be good padding and a nice rubber outsole for bopping around town, but as I couldn't even get them on my feet, I can't say for sure how comfy they are.

Comfy and correctly sized (I wear wide). I need one more hole punched, though, because I can't wear socks (don't say it! I know I'm a fashion failure).

I was disappointed with these sandals. I have wide feet so when I ordered the D Width, I expected them to be Wide. I did not feel that they are a true Wide sandal.

I liked these at first, but the straps stretched out so much that I had to keep adding new holes. Eventually the strap just broke, leaving me stranded and shoeless. Also, these things are extremely loud and squeaky for some reason, which doesn't seem like a big deal until your entry into every room is announced by a SNEEF! narf SNEEF! narf pattern of noises.

The shoe was almost what I wanted. I was looking for true brown or camel. This shoe is red with a hint of brown. It is comfortable enough but not up to SAS levels. Too bad SAS does not make its style similar to this one in brown any more. I would have preferred that shoe. The Bass was much less expensive, however. I wear the shoe almost daily now.

These are an attractive red with metal touches. They are very comfortable with buttery soft leather straps. Some arch support would be a bonus, as well as slightly more flexible soles. I like to slip on my sandals without hands, if possible. The single ply unstitched straps are so soft and floppy that the wearer must fiddle with the straps to put on the shoes. Overall, that is a minor criticism.

I am returning because I felt like these were not sturdy enough to last for long walks. The straps felt very thin like they would be easy to break if any stress was put on them. And it looked like some of the seams were glued which I don't think would hold.

I got 2 pairs. The first time I put a pair on, I thought that they were made for my feet! The first day, I walked distances with zero rubbing, blistering or discomfort. The next day I tried the other pair to make sure it wasn't a fluke! Nope! So, I bought 3 more pairs and plan to wear them all to death. Classic style that can be casual or moderately dressy is great. I haven't had such happy feet in a very long time!

These sandals are very cute and comfortable! I got several compliments on them, and they fit true to size. Unfortunately, they weren't quite sturdy enough for me. I'm a New Yorker, and my commute involves substantial walking every day. After about two months, the soles cracked along the ball of my foot; a little after that, one of the side straps broke. That said, if you don't need them to stand up to heavy use, they're a great compromise between comfy and dressy. If I got another pair, they'd probably live at the office to swap out with the sturdier shoe I used to get there.

These shoes look great. They are more elegant looking on. I found the fit to be big, so I went a half size smaller. Also, they were super comfy, but they make this squish sound when you walk...so wearing them inside like at work is not an option or I squish all the way down the hall. But for outside, walking around, perfect.

I have worn this particular saddle for many years. My pair finally wore out and I tried to get another pair only to find Bass no longer made them. I tried looking for something similar, which I never found. I was so happy when I found these and immediately ordered a pair. I love these saddles! Very comfortable, like walking barefoot. Thanks for bringing them back!

True to width and length. Returned them because with every step taken they make a whishing noise. Think of air rushing out from below your foot. I saw that others did not like the noise either but decided to try them anyway.

I am a long time customer and am very satisfied with the service I received regarding these shoes. I am, however, extremely disappointed with this product. I wore them twice and the whole side of the shoe ripped. I also have the white ones, which after wearing them several times, both shoes got holes in the heel. I have received free of charge a new pair of both colors. I am hoping they will work out better. I will keep you informed as to how it works out. Thank you.

Not much support as it is a flat shoe. Love adjustable toe. The softness of the foot bed was very comfortable. Great bargain price.

It is nearly impossible to find sandals in wide. These are comfortable and true wides. Not the fanciest, but that is what I was looking for - a casual summer sandal.

Yea, Zappos. These sandals arrived the day after I ordered them. They fit great, look great, and have a comfortable cushioned sole. I have a narrow foot so I really appreciate Zappos for offering narrow width sizes.

These are very comfy, light-weight, simple sandals. They look like those salt-water sandals, but there's more cushioning and the leather straps are softer. I like their totally classic sandal look!

These are super comfortable, and I love the adjustable straps. The only problem is, for me at least, you can hear the air escaping from the padding as you walk which is really annoying. Still, super comfy!

Have worn this style of sandals for years until the last five or so years. Haven't been able to find them anywhere! High end stores only sell narrow shoes and I have wide feet. Was delighted to find these shoes on Zappos site! Next pair I order will be the wider size up, as I have them on the last hole in every buckle. Still, they are very comfortable. Would recommend.

These are the sandals I remember from decades ago: supersoft, buttery leather straps and genuine suede footbeds that are cool and comfortable all day. The narrow widths and adjustable straps on the forefoot are very much appreciated, too. These are obviously rather plain sandals, not a fashion item, but they are what they are, and I love them now just like I did in the '70s and '80s!

This sandal is extremely comfortable for my 67 year-old feet and very youthful in appearance. The manufacturer has fixed the "wheezing sound" that used to occur when walking in this shoe; that squishy sound is no longer present. The leather for the straps is soft and unlined, so it stretches some. I did well this time to order the 8W instead of my usual 8WW to accommodate for the stretching. Great sandal for the price. I should mention that the foot bed does not become wider for the wide sizes; the straps are simply made wider. But I do feel enough stability.
