These are the cutest things on the foot I've ever seen. They are weak in the arch support department, but with a "shoe cookie" they do okay. The arch is better on El Naturalista's other styles, but I just had to have these babies!

This shoe is like a nice looking - less clunky - Birkenstock. But, they smell. Will this odor go away? Haven't decided whether or not to keep them. I do like the fit.

No, no, no. No comfort. Not a good foot bed/soul. Not soft. The instep latch is too large and my instep is pretty high. Most shoes are too tight across the top of my foot. This shoe did not work for me.

It's a nice little sandal, but at the price I needed to love it and I didn't. The shape of the toe seemed more Birkenstocky on than I thought from the photo. Also thought they might offer a little more support, but they are just very slightly better than your basic flat sandal and not cushioned. If you're undecided about size, I would say go up. I'm a 10, and always face the 40 or 41 question. I went for 41(supposedly 10.5-11)in these, and they were a good fit. But 1/8th inch shorter and they would have been too short and 41 seemed more like 9.5-10 to me.

I have been trying to find a replacement for my green flats for some time and saw these on the feet of another visitor at the Getty Museum in LA. I was thrilled when they arrived, but unfortunately, my instep is too low and even the adjustable strap is not enough to keep them on my feet. Sadly they had to be returned. But the bed of the shoe was very comfortable and they are very cute.

Love these shoes. No break in period. I have a rather wide foot and these fit great. I want more colors! I will order more of these.

I like the shoe but it isn't big enough as my heel hangs over the end & my toes are cramped. I wear a 10 med so I don't know why they don't fit?

Fabulous, cozy, minimalist shoe. I'm normally an 11.5 and ordered 11. With my long, narrow feet, I'm always looking for shoes that are low (I'm super tall) and don't make my feet look like submarines. These are cute, very comfortable, and no break-in was required. I actually wore them on an impromptu hike the first time, and though I scratched them up, the leather tolerates it well and though they now have lots of "character" from that adventure, they still look great. I'm very particular about my shoe quality, and these are amazing. My one annoyance is that since I have narrow feet, there's a lot of strap material that sticks over the side. When people say in reviews that these shoes don't have much support, I would be more specific and say these have a natural, moccasin feel to them, but as someone with flat feet, they work for me. I think that's because the base is very high quality and it's almost like walking barefoot. If you want a high arch, this isn't the shoe for you.

A quality, good looking shoe that's just a little bit different than others out there. I'm enjoying them!

I really wanted to love these; however these don't have much support or cushion. These look cute, but I have bad feet and I need support. I wish I could remove the bed so I can add my orthotics and maybe I would have kept these. I love the clogs from this company. I love the company and how they seem very natural.

After purchasing the sling back Wakataua [size 38], I loved the quality, style, fit and comfort. When I saw this adorable unique feminine slide in vaquero (blue), I ordered it in as soon as my size was available. Unfortunately, for some reason it was too roomy for my slightly narrower foot. Even with the velcro strap pulled as tightly as possible and added gel arch inserts, it was still way too loose & wouldn't stay on [sigh]. I hated to return it. Not sure, perhaps it was that particular pair because no one else seems to have had a similar problem, plus I didn't have this problem with the sling backs. I may try another pair or a size smaller.

I liked these: comfortable footbed, cute in a crunchy-granola-ish way. But contrary to what some reviews led me to believe, I found them to run incredibly small - I'm an 11 and the 42s felt more like a 10-10.5 to me. Unfortunately, that means they don't make my size. Bummer.
