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.

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!

The soles are of poor quality! I can feel the pebbles and gravel thru the soles of the sandal as I walk down my driveway. Does not compare to the durability of the older sandals. They would most likely do better on the boardwalk or beach.

I like the shoe, it's comfortable on all counts, except the back rubbed a blister onto my ankle in the short time I had it on. I need something I don't need to break in like this--maybe if I loved them more I would be willing so back it goes.

Eureka! A sandalish shoe for Summer that covers my aged, gnarly toes, provides some ventilation and enough cushioning for long walks. Perfect? Not quite. I wish they came in Narrows; they're a little floppy without either socks or an insole, neither of which is fun in hot weather. I wish the support were just a bit better, but it's pretty good. And I wish it came in lighter, more summery colors and materials. But overall, this is a cuter-than-you'd-think shoe with plenty of comfort and walkability.

These shoes are super cute, and a good option if you like sandals with closed toes. My feet are on the wide side but the medium felt fine, especially after I wore the shoes with socks for a few days. But these feel narrower than other Josef Seibel shoes that I have had, and may not work if your feet are truly wide. The color, Capril Bark Leather, is really pretty.

As other reviewers have noted, the side of this shoe hit my ankle bone. Also, the back of the shoe was not snug to the heel. Hit the five stars accidentally. Loved the appearance of these but had to return them.

These are my favorite shoes - wish there were a winter version! They are ultra comfortable and also provide excellent support. They wear very well - I bought these to have on hand in case they disappear from the market.

Got these to go with straight leg jeans and to walk around with a lot of comfort and style. These Josef Seibels fit both my objectives. The footbed is nice and cushy without adding bulk to the look. The stitching makes them look as classy and expensive as they are. Loved the velcro strap.

These arrived the day before I went to Sicily. As soon as I put them on I knew. Fabulous! I had other good shoes for the trip but I wound up spending most of my time wearing these sometimes ALL DAY walking everywhere. While on vacation I actually ordered another pair so that when I wear these into the ground I have another.

Loved the shoe, but my usual size 8 was too long. Zappos no longer has this shoe at this time. I would order a half size down if possible.

Love the shoes! They are awesome for summer days. I was a little concerned when I first received them as there was a slight rub spot. I wore them around the house 3 days before taking them on the road. No blisters and not tight in that area anymore.

These shoes are super comfortable, I really love them. I didn't like the look on as much as I expected (I bought another style as well and like those more), but they are great shoes and comfortable from the minute you wear them.
