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.

The leather is soft and the shoe would not really require a break in period. Initially, I put this shoe on my "good" foot and found it to be incredibly comfortable. However one of the straps cuts into a bunion on my other foot. Sadly, I need to send them back. I need some sort of summer time closed toe shoe for work and thought that these would do nicely.

Runs 1/2 size bigger. Cute, but the design coloring on the soles make the shoes look dirty.

Liked the way the shoe looks, but it was too big and rubbed on my ankle bones.

I have a high instep and these shoes didn't work for me. Also, cuter in the photos than in person.

Beautiful shoe. Unique closing with velcro on top of the foot. I've wanted to try this shoe for several years. Cute design -- maybe not quite what I need for an upcoming trip, though.

Love these!! I am pretty fussy about work shoes as I mostly stand for 7 hours at a time and these have been comfortable out of the box. The only adaptation I had to make for wearing them to work was some moleskin on the heel (which seemed to rub a little too enthusiastically out of the box). The last seems to fit my foot well--not the best arch support but a fine trade off between comfort and cuteness. Your Milage May Vary, but I would definitely recommend to friends!

These shoes are so cute, and very comfortable. I am returning them because they are a little too flat which causes cramps in my toe. I wish they could work for me!

I give these shoes 5 stars! They are my 3rd pair and comfortable beyond description for my old and tender feet! Thank you for the quick delivery and another pair of wonderful shoes! I even have my orthotics in one pair, that make them especially lovely to walk in!

So close, but not quite right. I once had a pair of fisherman sandals that I loved, but once they wore out, I've been unable to find a replacement. This version looked promising, having flexible soles, adjustable ankle, gaps between the straps placed well for air and sifting out debris...but they didn't quite fit. I tried two sizes. The smaller was the right length, but way too narrow in the instep. The larger was a little too long, a little too high in the heel (pressuring my achilles tendon at each step). Both had regrettable, irritating, exposed stitching right at the instep. It would have rubbed to the point of drawing blood had I tried to walk any distance. So, sadly, I must return these and continue searching.

This is an extremely comfortable shoe. Unfortunately I am returning it only because it's not the color depicted on the website. It is a dark weathered brown, not a tan as shown.

Exchanged a pair with uncomfortable scratchy stitching in one place for a new pair that still has scratchy stitching but not in a place that rubs. However, the new pair is quite a bit darker than the first pair, really a medium brown and not the beige as shown in the photo.

This are so cute and *should* be comfortable, but there is some very scratchy stitching on the inside part of the strap on the right sandal -- the left is just fine. I noticed another review said the same thing, so I'm returning for another pair of the same style in the hope that it's just a manufacturing fluke.

Loved the shoes but have to return them because I would have blisters if I wore them. My misshaped toes would rebel. Really disappointed because my Josef Seibel pumps fit perfectly. I have several pair of those.

I love these shoes, very well made, you can feel the quality. Sadly too long for my right foot. I would size down but concerned the left shoe would be too short. Will have to find shoes size 9.5.

I have worn Josef Seibel for ten years now. I wore these sandals in brown until they fell apart. The shoe is dressy enough for nice pants, casual enough for jeans. Comfortable from the moment they come out of the box.

After foot surgery I have 1/2 size difference between feet. Needless to say, finding shoes is difficult. These shoes fit an feel great (minor heel blisters, but they'll go away soon). Arch support is a little less than I'd like, but overall these are comfortable smart looking shoes.

This is my second summer with these sandals. I agree with all the great reviews, and it's very difficult for me to find a sandal that works for my aching feet. But my feet stick to the insole like glue. This makes it really unpleasant and unfortunately I stopped wearing them for this reason.

I already owned these shoes in another color when I purchased these. I was looking for a sandal-like shoe for summer that would allow me to walk distances. So far, this design fits the bill. I find flip-flops difficult for running errands because I'm always working to keep them on my feet. These shoes go the distance.

I started wearing these as soon as I opened the box! Love. I have problem feet, size 11, narrow heel but need room in the toe box. For the past several years I have needed to wear orthotics constantly, and have been limited to athletic shoes in order to get the support I need. A sad situation for this sandal-loving gal. I wouldn't call them sandals, but what a great, comfy summer shoe! The heel is just slightly loose, but works well for me with the orthotics and the velcro strap across the top of the foot. Good air flow through the sides, comfortable sole, very well-made, and supportive of my whole foot. The bonus is that they look great with casual pants, jeans, capris and shorts. They'll be wearable in the fall with socks, but for now I'm so glad to free my feet! Worth every penny!

I'm sad to have to return these because I could really love these shoes. The quality and style are unbeatable. And they are so cute! (I had to assure my little dog that I still love her best. When she hears "cute" she thinks it's about her.) Unfortunately, my old toes are too bent for compatibility and my foot is too tall for strap #3. I would need a wider pair. Bon voyage, cuties!
