I adore these shoes! Zappos did not have my size, but after reading all the reviews, I decided to take the plunge and order directly from Ecco. I am so glad I did! These were comfortable right out of the box and I walked more than three miles in them the first day I wore them out of the house. After far too many years of wearing super high heels, I now have problem feet and bunions. These do not even come close to hurting my bunions as they are plenty wide enough (I can still either tighten or loosen the buckle near the toe). They look great with skirts/dresses, shorts, and slacks. I love the metallic insole and the soles are very stable (they will be great for Italy), but not too rugged looking. If it is too warm inside, my feet will stick to the insole a bit it will be a little noisy when I walk. Oddly, this does not happen when I am walking outside in the heat. About a week after I got these shoes, Zappos got my size! Boo hoo! I always love supporting Zappos. They now also have the Sand in my size which I want but think I will get in trouble with the honey. Oh, I am normally a 5-5½ but I had to buy the 4-4½ and they fit perfectly. I have flat feet so I do not have any problems with arch support.

Awesome sandal! No break-in necessary. I thought it was going to be too short - I am a size 7 and ordered a euro37. When I first tried them on my big toe came almost all the way to the end. But I wore them and it was fine. A larger size would have been too long and too wide. They seem wide in the toe area, and I don't have a narrow foot. Very comfortable.

I love these sandals. I usually wear an 8 so I bought them in 38 (7-7.5) based on other reviews. I have a narrow foot, but these fit fine. They are perfect except for the scratchy bit under the buckles. I bought some adhesive strips from the foot-care department at the drugstore and attached them to the underside of the buckles. That problem was solved very inexpensively. I will wear these cute and comfortable sandals often. Thanks Zappos!

These are great shoes, but I had to return them because they are too wide. If you have a narrow heel, ECCO shoes are not the best. Would have loved to keep them if they came in half sizes and more widths.

I bought these for wandering in Europe - trying to look fairly stylish but protect my feet in the summer heat. They're cushiony, comfortable and the metallic leather goes with everything. I'm very happy with them. Also the footbed doesn't seem to get dirty, which is nice and keeps the shoe looking new.

My third pair of Ecco sandals and loving all three! The Groove T-straps in Sand fit very well, although the straps feel a bit more stiff than the others. I get compliments on them all the time. The color goes well with so many outfits. Good support, too!

Bought these shoes just a few weeks ago and they are the most comfortable pair of sandals I own right now. Love the t-strap style. The footbed is soft and comfy and the straps don't rub. They're cute worn with just about anything. A really good summer sandal.

These are great sandals. Sleek, stylish and gladiator-inspired without being too gimmicky. Extremely comfortable and secure out of the box.

I bought these sandals in the a 38 (my normal size) in the sand leather and love the color as it went with anything I wore. I purchased the sandals for a trip to Hawaii and wore them nearly every day, sometimes all day long and my feet were very happy! No rubbing, blisters or pinching just comfortable. I did need to have two more holes punched into the ankle strap but I have skinny feet. Very happy with my purchase!

Love these shoes! Very comfortable, you can walk in them all day. For a size 8, order a 38. I tried these on in a store before I ordered them, glad I did.

I love these! Right out of the box, I wore them for two days straight. The straps felt a bit loose when I first put them on, but once I walked around in them, they seemed fine. At the end of the second day (and a whole lot of walking), my pinky toes had gotten a little sore from rubbing. No blister though, and I have worn them again for a more normal day with no problems.

I ordered these in Sand in a 38 and 39. I wear an 8 and the 39 was perfect for my medium width, slightly shallow instep. This is a great, versatile sandal - very light weight and more arch support than I expected. Wore them all day without aches or pains. Smart enough for work on Friday but not too smart for the weekend and great with pants or capris. Definitely worth the price in comfort and style as the color goes with everything - will probably get another pair if they go on sale at the end of the season. Only downside - I had to add a hole to the ankle strap, but I do have narrow ankles. Incredible service - ordered Friday evening and they were here on Monday on regular shipping!

Fantastic sandals. Didn't even want to take them off after wearing them for a full day of shopping. Soft and comfy. Flexible. Adjustable. I felt very "in style."

Wonderful! I wear ECCO golf shoes and thought I'd give these a try for off golf course walking. Wanted something that was not clunky looking and these are sturdy yet not clunky. Fit/felt great the moment I put them on and just like the ECCO golf shoes. I have a narrow foot, typically have issues with my heel moving around in shoes, however, these fit the heel beautifully.

Ecco shoes fit my feet well. And this sandal is no exception. It has good arch support and was comfortable out of the box. The styling is simple, which makes this an easy sandal to wear with almost anything.

I bought this shoe to wear on our trip to Italy. My 18 year old daughter decided she wanted it and now we will share it. She has a wider foot than I do and the shoe still fit her fine, but not too wide on my normal foot. It is in a great neutral color.

Perfect sandals. They are comfortable and look great with everything. A colleague ordered a pair from Zappos after admiring mine. I usually wear a 9 but ordered down one size.

I have been looking and looking for a sandal that is comfortable enough to walk long distances while on vacation, as well as cute... and I found it! This sandal is super comfortable, but you can still dress it up or down. It doesn't make your foot look really wide like other brands do. The grey metallic color goes great with black or brown outfits, so you save room in your suitcase. Zappos upgraded my shipping for free and they arrived exactly 24 hours after I sumbitted my order. Thanks Zappos!

These are as pretty as they look and are really comfortable. Gladiator-ish but still really feminine. Very comfortable right out of the box and true to size for me.

I love ECCO sandals. I have the ECCO Groove Gladiator Sandal II which I would recommend over this sandal. I kept these sandals, because I needed something feminine to wear out when traveling in Europe. However traveling now I have found that they rub at the buckle and in the back. Otherwise they are comfortable, and have a great sole that prevents your feet from tiring. If your feet are very skinny this sandal will not be a good fit. I would highly recommend the ECCO Groove Gladiator Sandal II. No break in, and no rubbing!
