Absolute heaven on your feet! Padded leather inside is delicious. Soft leather with velcro closure makes them super easy to wear. They look cuter and funkier in person than in the pic. Love them so much I ordered them in black too.

I'm so disappointed that I had to return these shoes! The insoles are extremely comfortable and the shoe is stylish. But, like some of the other reviewers, the back cuts into my heel and the side cuts into my ankle. So, back they go.

These are the most comfortable shoes. I am on my feet constantly and wouldn't wear anything else for 100% comfort Have not seen these in department stores. Love Zappos!

Cute shoe...ordered my usual size and they were a little big in the heel and rub. I am going to order 1 size down and hope they fit. I love Josef Seibel shoes, always comfortable and wear well for years.

The best of the best is what this company is! My shoes were at my front door before I would have had a chance to go to a store and shop, and way faster than the store clerk can even go to the back room and bring them out to try on! Everything to like about Zappos!

I have really enjoyed wearing these shoes. In fact I own two pairs one black and the other the cinnamon color. I receive compliments no matter which color I wear. I started wearing Josef Seibel when my husband and I lived in Germany. I have also owned others styles as well as the Ida. I do not think you will be disappointed in these sandals.

Very comfortable and lightweight shoe; versatile enough to go with shorts, jeans and skirts equally well. I love the shape of the toe box, very comfy for someone with bunions. I'm taking them on a trip to Jerusalem where we will be doing a lot of walking.

I've only worn them once so far, but they felt great. I also have a pair of Josef Seibel loafers that I have worn for probably 3 years now, every non-work day from about October through May. They have yet to wear out and are super comfortable, too.

Worth every penny. These shoes have a wider toe box to allow for and hide my bunions but a more narrow heel. The velcro strap is easy to adjust when my feet swell. First day I wore these shoes I was on my feet for 10 hours straight and my feet never hurt!

I love Josef Seibel shoes. I've been wearing them for years, and was excited to see this new style for summer. The best thing about this brand, at least for me, is there is no "break-in" period. None. Just put them on and wear them. They feel just like an old friend on your feet - comfortable and nice to have around. And, thanks Zappos, for upgrading my shipping!

I just returned for Florida and wore these shoes every day. They were comfortable from the start. I have rather thin feet so need shoes that hug. These fit well and I am pleased.

Extremely lightweight yet comfortable shoes. Arch support is just enough. Even with a narrow foot, they can be adjusted to fit perfectly. These are the shoes that you tend to automatically put on if going out, as they feel so good.

These are great looking shoes and the arch support is decent. I couldn't figure out why they were not comfortable when I was walking around. I compared them to a pair of Joseph Seibel sandals I have and the difference is the sole. My sandals have a cushy rubber sole and the sole on this shoe is flat and stiff. I'd give them a try though as they are a great summer shoe option and you may not be as Princess and the Pea sensitive as I am.

The shoes are really nice looking but, I tried two different sizes and both started to make a blister on my heel and ankle with just a few minutes of trying them out. Love them but can't wear them can't say enough about Zappos quick delivery, excellent and I will be ordering again, back to Merrells, I guess.

This shoe is very high on the back side and cuts into the ankle. I have highset ankles and was very surprised that this would be a problem. Other than this uncomfortable design the shoe is nice.

Not as supportive as all my other Joseph Seibel shoes. Not enough padding either so my feet get tired standing. Lightweight.

Good quality, pretty much what I expected from the brand. The toe shape is wider looking than I expected, but for casual wear they are comfortable. Like the velcro strap adjustment over the instep. The edge stitching on the straps is a little rough on the inside. I have other Josef Seibels that I wear at least a few times a week.

Sadly, I had to return these sandals due to the back seam that dug into my heel. It's a flaw that seems to affect other reviewers. I hope Josef Seibel can redesign this sandal, as it is otherwise perfect.

Cute shoe but the back of the shoe dug into my ankle when I walked so I returned it. If not for this I would have kept the shoe. It was very comfortable and exactly what I was looking for a summer trip to Asia.
