Very comfortable, pretty. I am keeping these sandals, but FYI, they make a puff-of-air sound as you walk. I am hoping that will go away as they get more worn, because my office environment is very quiet! I Googled this sound effect and found 3 other people who reported it on another site. But I still love the shoes and intend to keep them. 4 stars is only because of the puff of air syndrome.

Great sandals, really comfortable. My only complaint is they make a gaseous noise when you walk. Luckily, I live in a city so it is not the big of a problem.

Price is right! For the price, these sandals are great. I only gave 4 stars because there is minimal arch support. I think they do run a tad bit small... As always, Zappos did a tremendous job!

I like these sandals. They are casual, but a little nicer than tennis shoes or flip flops. Only one problem: the right shoe makes a hissing sound when I step. Weird!

Lo-o-o-o-ong Toe Bed! I do have short-ish toes, but these shoes were set up very strangely for my feet. The front strap was way too far from my toes... like at least a half inch before my toes even began! So I felt like I was going to slip straight out the front. Not recommended for narrow feet! Or short toes! Everyone else is super lucky because these are very, very cute.

Not the Same Old Shoe - I have worn these shoes before, and was excited to see them again. They are not the same old shoe, however. They are made of thinner leather, and are just skimpier and less comfortable than they were many years ago.

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 thought this was a really cute shoe, comfortable and flat. Good for summer walking. However, a quick walk across the living room ended all that. The air in the cushion of the sole is expelled with each step creating an awkward "farting" noise. There’s really no other way to describe it. Perhaps in time this would go away, but I wouldn’t want to take the chance.

Poor workmanship! I love the look and the style--however, the strap broke the first time I put them on! I was so sure I would love the shoes; I didn't keep the return materials. So, I am not sure about how to return them. I'm hoping it is just a "faulty" shoe. I would like to try another pair.

Think twice before you buy this shoe - I received the shoes on Thursday, April 23. Wore them around the house to make sure they were comfortable. Put them on today to go to work and the back strap came undone while I was sitting on the train! Luckily, I always have an extra pair of shoes at work. For the price, I expected the shoe to last more than four days. It's a very cute shoe, but I can't give it a higher rating considering the shoddy material used. Other stores make a sturdier shoe than this. I'm so angry that I had to lose my money this way.

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!

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 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.

I bought these from Zappos last summer and wore them every day. Just pulled them out of my closet, and they look great. I love these sandals! They elongate the leg, and they are easily dressed up or down. This is a classic sandal with a cushion-y sole that is very comfortable. Waterproof, too! Wish they sold them in more colors!
