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...

Comfort! Style! Quality! All in ONE STYLE! I have very wide feet, and I have had several stress fractures on one foot, midway between my pinkie and heel. Because of this, it's been SO HARD to find a good shoe that fits everywhere - width, size (length) and also fits my budget and my sense of style. Well, if this is also a problem for you, LOOK NO MORE! These sandals may not be incredibly "sexy", but they're definitely cool and not "geriatric-looking". They are so comfortable; it's like walking on pillows! They're adjustable across the top and around the ankle. The bottom is shock-resistant, and you literally can't feel ordinary gravel or rocks under your feet in these shoes (something I've always HATED). I bought these in Cinnamon, which is closer to a reddish-maroon color than brown, and then bought them in black. My all-time favorite shoe is SAS Duo, but they are almost impossible to find, may be discontinued, and are almost 3 times the price. These Bass Joanne's are perfect. They'll last years - just like my other Bass sandals. (I've actually had a pair of Bass Margie's for 6 years and you wouldn't know it looking at the sole!). I bought a WW, but I might have been able to go for just a plain "W". Nevertheless, they're adjustable, so I have absolutely no problem; I just made them a bit tighter across the top. If you need a comfortable shoe that you can (a) walk in, (b) stand in for long periods of time, and (c) fits your budget, then this shoe is for YOU! And Please, LET'S NOT FORGET HOW GREAT ZAPPOS IS! Free shipping, free returns, EXCELLENT customer service every time, any time. Way to go, Bass and Zappos!

Brands I'd also recommend: Bass Margie, some Annie styles, and SAS Duo

I found these to have great quality and to be very attractive for a flat sandal. I no longer can wear heels. I love the Cinnamon color. I am normally a 9 1/2 Regular width, but I read reviews, which I find helps a lot, it's very important and decided to go with the majority and got 9 1/2 wide and it was perfect. I love them! The real test will be next summer!

Great alternative to the Hoy Saltwater. I have the Saltwaters and love them, but man, are they too flat for mama's feet! These have nice cushioning, come in narrow sizes (I have a super extra narrow spike of a foot, and the narrows fit just right). If only Bass would make these in a similar Saltwatery array of colors and metallics!

A nice casual, lightweight, basic sandal! Fit was comfortable. I have a high arch, so arch support was only average for me. However, one sandal seemed to leak air from between the insole and outer sole when I walked. One call to Zappos customer service took care of my problem, at no cost to me. Will never hesitate to order again, or to recommend to friends and family.

These shoes are great! I also ordered the Bass Margie, but they went back. This shoe had no break-in time. The leather is quality and they are a classic look. My dad swears I had these same sandals in 1986 when I was 10. I still love 'em. Get the red!

I bought these sandals for my 10 year old daughter. She has a very high instep and flip-flops don't often work for her. She loves the shoes and can't get over how comfortable they are. Great shoe for a great price that's casual enough for school but dressy enough for church.

I love this sandal! It's classic, comfortable, and goes with just about everything! I have them in red, and love adding this little pop of color to my wardrobe. The only thing I don't like about them is the constant hissing air sound with each step. I find it a little embarrassing. But with that said, this detail shouldn't detour anyone from buying or wearing this sandal. Great for all ages, all styles(!), and long walks!

Love this sandal so much. Simply, stylish and very comfortable. Just rediscovering Bass Sunjuns and can't believe how much I've missed them. And Zappos, what can I say that hasn't been said? Genius.

These sandals are so comfortable right out of the box. There is no need to break them in. So soft and "cushiony", like walking on a cloud of air. Nice sole for feeling sure-fitted walking.

I've been looking for comfortable, casual white sandals for quite some time. After one pair of sandals ordered from Zappos did not fit, I ordered another pair the next night. I received these sandals in the next day's mail. They fit well and are comfortable. I'm very pleased.

Comfy sandals. Wore them when we spent a week on Kauai because everything gets stained with the red dirt there. Did great for dressing up, dressing down, and everything in between. Hardly knew I was wearing shoes.

Comfortable sandals. The sole isn't quite as flexible as I would have liked, but it isn't too bad. The straps actually had the holes my very narrow feet needed. My feet stay put in the sandals and don't slide around.

These were comfortable when I immediately walked two miles in them right out of the box! The Cinnamon color is great, darker than red, lighter than burgundy. They are not sexy shoes, but they are cute and stylish in a low-key, old lady sort of way. They do make an air-releasing sound when you walk on them that is audible in quiet places (maybe this goes away?), but that is not a big deal to me. My feet are narrowish with some narrows being too tight around my toes while some are not, but these shoes in 7½ (my normal size) N are perfect. I have to use the tightest hole to buckle across my toes even with the narrows. So if your feet are a little narrow (or quite narrow), I recommend the N. They provide really great comfort and style, especially for the price! I want to order the black too. And kudos to Zappos as usual. I ordered in the evening and still got my shoes the next day with free standard shipping

Overall, I like these sandals. The leather is a little stiff, but for the money I didn't expect top grade leather. I'm sure they will soften up with wear. The sole is nicely cushioned and comfortable. I have a very, very wide foot and the only problem I have had is that my pinky toe tends to stick out a little bit between the straps. I love the looks of these sandals though and I don't think it will be much of a problem for short walks.

Bought these to wear as backup sandals in Italy. My tennies gave me a bruise under my bunion on my left foot the very first day walking in Rome! Couldn't get in my #1 sandals at all! Ended up only wearing these the entire 15 days traipsing around Italy and that's a lot of walking! They saved my honeymoon! Getting ready to get two more pair - in black and tan!
