Fabulous shoes. I ordered them based on all the great reviews here on Zappos. Needed great sandals for my upcoming trip to Paris in which I'll be walking, walking, walking. They're very interesting in that the leather (I have them in Biscuit Leather)is a bit distressed-looking. I really love this. They look great on and are super comfortable. There was actually some pinching on one of my pinky toes the first time I wore them but I stretched that area a bit and I haven't noticed it since. Love these shoes!

I have several pairs of Naot shoes. I really wanted to like these shoes, since I am a little bored with wearing the Kayla style (worn for five years same style, different pairs) but the toe strap rubbed my pinky toes, and blisters resulted. I returned the shoes. Go with the Kaylas, they are much more comfortable.

My, my, my do I love these shoes! They are stylish and comfortable - what a winning combination. I got them in "Sky" or blue. They have a tint of purple to them, which just adds to their overall style. These shoes stand out and make an outfit!

Terrific sandal; more flattering to the leg in my opinion thanks to the v-shape of the straps. I have the biscuit color and it goes with everything. Naot sandals aren't ever the most chic footwear but I've gotten more compliments on this style than any of the previous Naot's I've owned. Comfort-wise Naot's cannot be beat.

I have about 6-8 pairs of Naot sandals -- Elegant Collection sandals for my narrowish feet -- Alyssa, Kayla, Rachel, etc. and these are my first Bernice. The style is quite attractive, the blue color is an unusual sky blue / very slightly toward periwinkle, and the finish is that new, vaguely-matte finish that looks like it's being viewed through clouds. Not shiny, not flat, just different. But, the fit is a bit off -- the strap that crosses from inside toe to outside heel is 1/8 to 1/4" too long. It's as if they cut the leather, then decided to put in a piece of elastic for stretch, and didn't adjust the length of the leather strap to accommodate the elastic. I'm still not sure it will fit. The leather strap bulges out if I adjust it the way I think is comfortable. I'll try various adjustments and see. I'll give it until tomorrow and another couple tries. Other than that, it's the same fit as all the other Elegant Collection sandals I have. Between narrow and medium width. Great arch support, etc. I wear a size 9.5 shoe and always buy a size 41 in Naot sandals to get a perfect length. I'm very glad to see a new color, and always hope for more pastel and bright colors! Neutral gets boring after a while.

This is my first pair of Naots, and after reading a lot of reviews I tried this pair and the Kayla. I liked the Bernice because it had a little bit more style. It took a couple of days to break them in, the arch support bothered one of my feet for a couple of days but now it is completely fine. I did get some blisters on my pinky toes after wearing them all day and walking over 2 miles in 90F weather, but that would have happened with any sandal that has a strap over my toes. I've gotten a lot of comments on them and I'm happy with my choice.

Love these shoes. This is the second pair I have owned. I love the style, which is similar to others but this one does not have a strap across the instep/arch which I find very comfortable. These seemed to run a little smaller than my previous pair which was the same size. Maybe its just wear on the first pair? Bottoms didn't match up though..? I tried the next size up but seemed too long so I decided to keep the size I had previously.

I love these so much I came back to look for them in navy and am disappointed that they don't offer a blue in this style. I literally tried on every single Naot, Mephisto, Taos, Birkenstock and many others in pursuit of the perfect sandal for walking a lot in very hot Europe last summer. I have a neutral easy to fit foot but in the heat many sandals can develop hot spots due to the straps and slight foot swelling by the end of the day. These were amazing out of the box. Felt slightly loose and I wondered if that would become worse with wear - but my foot was snug in the foot bed and back strap kept them in place. The slightly loose straps actually meant they stayed comfortable all day long. The straps don't bind at all but they are wrapped in such a way that they hold the foot in place without being snug. Hard to describe, but intentional or not it makes the sandals a winner for me. Another great feature - I walked in these a lot for several weeks and have worn them at home a lot. Getting ready to return to Europe this summer and they look great still.

I love Naot Shoes and now I know the secret for those of us with Narrow Feet. These are so darned cute and I really wanted them to work, but the straps hit my bunion wrong. Sadly they are going back. But they are so cute and comfy if you don't have bunions!

Let me repeat what others are saying: this footbed is more narrow than other Naots. I ordered three pairs. This one got ruled out immediately because my foot almost hung over the side, and with summer heat, it would have done so for sure. Great for our slimmer footed friends.

Finally, a pair of attractive comfort sandals! I thought that I would not be able to find stylish sandals that have cushioning and arch support rather than flat soles that feel like you are walking on pavement. I am still breaking them in, but they fit like a glove (I am a size 8 and bought a size 8). They are a nice chocolate brown color and they go with both shorts and causal sundresses. They are expensive, but they will last and I will not have to go through the seemingly endless search again next year.

Wore these shoes over uneven terrain, and on city streets in Singapore and Indonesia for the past month. Smart, give me a bit of height, no breaking in needed, easy to adjust fit with straps.

These are very comfortable sandals, but the ankle strap was too low and kept slipping no matter how tightly I adjusted it.

Gorgeous shoe - loved it, comfy...until I started to walk in it - the strap on the heel kept slipping & rubbing. It made me sick that I had to return them - they were gorgeous.

I got these in the all silver color and they're wonderful. It's surprising how many colors silver will go with - I could almost get rid of all my other sandals and just wear these! They're extremely comfortable as well. I did have to break them in because at first I had some rubbing on my pinky toe. I just tried to break them in slowly and they softened up to the point where I can wear them for hours now with no problems. The footbed is super comfy, and even though Naot says these run narrow to medium, my almost wide feet are fine in them. They soles seemed very slippery when I first tried them on in my apartment and I hoped they would get grippier as I wore them on concrete and they got scuffed up a bit. They have indeed, though I still wouldn't recommend them for walking on slick surfaces. Overall, these are a great addition to my growing collection of Naots, and the criss-cross design is particularly flattering because it extends the leg rather than cutting it off at the ankle like so many Naots do because they have a strap that goes right across the ankle. I wish these came in more colors! (Sadly, I no longer see even the solid silver I bought on Zappos, though perhaps it will return!)

Love this sandal. Looks good and super comfortable from the get-go! No uncomfortable breaking in period, whatsoever. It's only getting better with wear. Perfect travel shoe and...did I say? It really does look good, too!

I had to break in this shoe, by wearing socks for about a week. Once the leather softened, it was fine. The perfect shoe that goes with everything.

I love these shoes! I even ordered them in two different colors. I was looking for sandals that had support and still didn't look clunky. These certainly filled the bill. I was able to put them on, and except a minor irritation on the back strap, which resolved within a very short time, I was ready to go. Definitely a 5 in all categories!

This is my 4th pair of Naots. As with all my others, this pair needed no break in period. They are the most comfortable sandals I own. I bought a pair of Mephistos, but they are still not broken in and they are very heavy in comparison to the Naot. I plan to buy only Naot for sandals in the future.
