I love this shoe, first and foremost. However, it has some immense structural issues. I first ordered it last April, and within 3 months the sole had cracked in half. Zappos was lovely enough to send me a replacement pair, which lasted a little longer (at least through the remainder of the summer). However, now that it's warm again I've started to wear these sandals again, and the sole has already cracked in several places, plus the inner sole (foot cushion?) is ripping out of the seam and coming up. I really dig these shoes but it is unbelievable how many different structural issues they have in terms of longevity. I've worn this pair for probably three months between this and last summer, and they are already in tatters.

Honestly, these are nothing special, just a basic low-profile sandal in a cute color. The "cinnamon" color is really basically red, and the foot bed is cushioned nicely so I hope they will be comfortable. They are completely flat - there's no heel at all to these shoes, so they might be nice for running summer errands, farmers' market, etc. Definitely not enough support to wear these for walks.

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.

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.

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.

The shoes are really cute and comfortable. Like other reviews I read, they make a noise when I walk that sounds like air shushing in and out.

Cute and comfy but it does make the awful squish noise on both shoes every time I step. I was hoping it would go away like some reviews said, but it has not. i have worn this several times running errands, walking dogs, and just around the house to try and break in to get rid of the squish noise. No luck, I do not think it will ever go away. I will not be able to wear these to quiet places and they will be relegated to festival shoes. also, as other reviewers have noted, the straps do not go up according to width. they stay the same regardless. There is also no room to make extra holes at the end of the leather on the ankle strap. I was feeling very nostalgic as I loved these as a child. But I should have gone with my gut and sent them back instead of trying to make them work.

So I really like these shoes. They look nice, are super comfy, and I want to wear them all the time. Then the buckle snapped 2 weeks in on one shoe. I am really hoping this is just a fluke, and I can get them exchanged.

I really wanted to like these shoes. They are so cute and amazingly comfortable. However, as other reviewers have mentioned, they make a lot of noise. They wheeze loudly at every step. I would be absolutely mortified to wear these in public! Such a shame, otherwise they would be perfect!

VERY comfortable shoes but the straps are not very durable. The first pair of these failed after three wearings, but Zappos gave me a free replacement pair! So far, the second pair seems fine.

The right shoe makes an annoying "whooshing" sound with every step; otherwise, nice shoes for the price - cute and very comfortable.

I love the look of this shoe, but after wearing it for many hours, it's just not comfortable! The front strap is close enough to the toes so it slips off easily; the pad is nice but makes a "woosh" sound when you step on it. Having to be careful about how to step and not knocking off the toes straps is annoying.

I prefer inaudible shoes in general. These are just a bit too noisy for my tastes. Although these sandals look exactly as they do on the website, and they fit wonderfully, I am returning them. The nicely padded footbed traps a tiny bit of air, and you can hear it when you walk. If you don't mind a constant pssht pssht pssht with every step you take, go ahead and give them a shot! I got these in the Cinnamon color, a good, not too flashy dark-ish red. My feet are kind of in between regular and wide. Sometimes regular shoes are too narrow, but wide shoes are generally too wide. Given my past history with sandals, I figured I'd better go with wide. I did, and they were perfect. So if your feet push the boundaries of 'W', you might want to go that route.

Cute sandal and pretty comfortable. The sole does feel a bit heavy and clunky. After 3 weeks of normal wear, the ankle strap completely snapped! These are pretty cheaply made-hence the price. Zappos gave me a refund right away and I might be crazy, but I'm going to try another pair.

I think the shoes are very comfortable; however, seem to be stretching out very quickly. The leather is very soft and hopefully will not keep stretching. I am so very impressed with Zappos - love it and after my husband saw how great you were to deal with he ordered shoes. We tell everyone about you.

I have a wide foot and found that the ankle strap was a little short. It just barely fits. Width was fine, length was true to fit.

For a wide shoe, I had to loosen the straps to make them fit. I had to get a 1/2 size larger to even loosen the strap. The leather straps aren't soft and the black stains my feet.

Very comfortable shoe. My feet sink into the cushion with every step and I can walk in these all day. The only problem I had was the black trapping comes off on my feet so it does stain the foot.

Not exactly a pretty shoe. I'm sending it back and looking for something more stylish. I have a wide foot and this just didn't do anything for me. (Plus, the buckles are bright gold.) I am also looking for something with a bit of arch support. These do have a cushioned feeling, but they are completely flat.

I need and extra wide. Description and sizing said extra wide. The straps could be adjusted but the sole of the sandal was still too narrow. My feet hung over the edge.

These sandals are comfortable, run true to size, but my baby toes have a tendency to slide out the cut-outs on the outside of the shoes. This could be because I wear a EE width, but I do not know. I also had some trouble with the strap/buckle area over the toes on a couple pairs the left and the right shoes had the buckles in slightly different places. Maybe I am just too nit picky...

Not the shoe I'd hoped it would be - I think this shoe is designed for a long, skinny, flat foot. I have a wide, short, chubby foot with a high arch. I got the extra wide in hopes that it would fit well. My arch doesn't even touch the mid-section of the shoe. There is very little arch support. Also, as some others have stated the shoe makes a very loud "poof" sound when you walk as air leaves the plushy sole. I suppose it's worth it as the sole is very soft and comfortable. I'm not sure I could have gotten used to it though. The main reason I returned them is the toe strap seems to be in an awkward place. My toes don't stay under it. My pinky toe was constantly popping outside the strap. I'm glad I tried them out around the house first.
