Like every other pair of Bass shoes I've owned (and there have been many) the size is a solid half size under normal. I usually wear an 8 in most brands, sometimes an 8.5. These shoes I'm a 7.5, order down! Also like every other pair of Bass shoes I've owned these are very well made with thick solid leather and sturdy soles. They feel and wear more expensive than they are. Definitely buying the black, and hopefully other colors as they are released.

I wear a size 10W. The 10 was true to size, but these were certainly not wide. They felt like a regular size 10M. The leather straps were stiff and scratchy--did not feel good on the toes or the ankle.

Love these comfy yet stylish shoes. First bought a pair from Anthropologie in yellow last year for myself, then got these in white for my 12-year-old, who wears them almost every day. The white is not a bright white - more of a neutral greyish white, which is much better and more versatile. Sizing is TTS - I wear a 7 1/2 and that size fit me with plenty of room. My daughter got the 7, though she could wear the 6 1/2 - room to grow. They are very flexible with a soft footbed and comfortable, soft leather straps. The front straps cover your toes, except at the very front, kind of like peep-toes. Although the soles are thin, they are cushioned with a rubber bottom, offering plenty of impact resistance. Only caution: for some reason, I find that the front of these tend to scrape on the ground or get caught on steps. Might be helped by buying a 1/2 size down to shorten the shoe. Does run narrow, but that works for me.

The worst quality sandal I have ever bought in my life - the front scuffs badly after the very first wear, the material feels cheap, I received 3(!) faulty pairs (after requesting multiple returns) that had severe manufacturing defects (the material was turned inside out and/or damaged) - Zappos was amazing as always, but I will never buy Bass again. That much for "made in the USA" - any cheap flipflop made in China passes higher quality standards that this.

I have decided to keep these shoes but they are not as comfortable as I thought they would be. I have narrow feet and no foot problems, but the front part of the shoe is very tight. It is even difficult to get them on. I was hoping to love these because they come in some nice colors but I do not. They are just ok.

Pros: these sandals look fabulous, 70s-style, and are comfortable Cons: they are cheaply made and poor quality, the seams are coming undone before the first wear, the leather is not smooth as shown in the picture (black ones) but is suede instead, the toe box is too wide in medium width and the rest of it is narrow, the strap needs 3-4 more holes punched into it, and the insole would look better if it were black. Several reviewers said these fall apart after just one summer - I'm doubtful if they even last that long.

These shoes are so adorable, which made it that much sadder when I couldn't even get my foot into the 9W. These will not work for wide feet. I thought they seemed too good to be true when I ordered them, and they were.

Beautiful color and cute style but poor quality. They are super easy to take on and off and comfortable right out of the box but the fronts and back of the heels get scuffed and shredded in about two weeks worth of wear which is not worth it. And there is no ankle support. I wouldn't purchase these again.

These sandals are very comfortable and needed no time at all for breaking them in. I liked them so much, I bought a second pair. I needed a comfy, yet stylish sandal for travel and these worked great for long walks through the airport. Would recommend highly.

Cute little sandals, but not the quality I expect from Bass. The leather seems flimsy. I will be returning them.

I waited till these went on sale -- needed a sandal that could be worn if needed with stockings - sometimes s cold in the Northeast! What was really nice is that they came in a narrow - hard to find in an 11! I do not plan on wearing them to hike Europe but they are plenty comfortable for an "event."

These shoes arrived ridiculously defective. The leather straps were stained with glue, ripped, scratched and one of them was cut by something blunt. Their sizes were different, one was 7.5W and the other shoe was 7.5M There was a sticky tape with handwritten size on one of the soles. The front edge of one shoe was damaged real bad. I tried to contact a representative via live chat option and she was just plain unhelpful. I have been buying shoes from Zappos for a very long time and never had this kind of a bad experience. Such a disappointment, shame on you Zappos!

This shoe is adorable; the narrow is fine for me BUT one shoe was a full inch longer than the other and the strap had over an inch without holes where I needed them. Also the nubuck was very worn; left dye on the tissue they were wrapped in. I got the red ones which were perfect. A big quality control issue, I'd say.

I bought them at the beginning of the spring and I wore them so much that I had to buy a second pair (and a third pair in a different color). I absolutely loved them. They are perfect for jeans, dresses and skirts! They are super cute and comfortable!

I love these so far. They are cuter than they look in the pictures, and comfortable enough to wear all day. I got a wide width because my other Bass sandals are a little narrow. The wide width is a little too wide but that's more comfortable than too narrow. I also got a size larger than I wear in some brands, again because my other Bass sandals are a little small. I think I could have gotten away with sizing up or getting the wider width but not both. It doesn't matter that much because, with the adjustable strap, you can make sure they stay on!

I purchased a pair in black two years ago, and have been pleased with them. In fact, I have worn them so much that I decided it was time to reorder. Aside from the fact that the toe area peeled after only a few weeks of wear, I enjoyed these comfortable sandals so much that I wanted to get another pair to replace them. The new ones arrived just one day after I placed the order, and I was unpleasantly surprised to find that they are not smooth leather, but a suede-like look. I went back to the picture and description on the Zappos site, and see no evidence of the change to the black ones...some of the other colors appear to now be suede. Regrettably, I will be returning these.

I bought these after rejecting too many poorly made, uncomfortable shoes to wear with my mother of the bride long gown. They are real leather, have a non slip real sole and are comfortable. Maybe not the height of sexy, but you cannot beat Bass quality!

Brands I'd also recommend: Clarks

I love these shoes! My only complaint is that if you hit the front of the shoe on anything, the leather peels up slightly. I purchased these in Caramel, and can't get enough of the color. I bought my usual size 9 AA (narrow) and they fit perfectly.

I had no choice but to order a half size smaller than I normally wear, which turned out perfect, because these run long. I wish I had ordered the wide because they are just a little tight around. I have small, thin feet and have never fit into a wide shoe.

I was so happy that the narrows run true to width. I wear a 9.5-10 AA and these run tts as well. The style is simple and I think they look better in person than online.

I love these sandals! This is the second pair I ordered, as the ones I got last summer did wear out relatively quickly. Even still, I'd order them again. They are comfortable, casual but way better than flip flops. The leather is soft right away, but loosens up and gets softer as the shoes get to know your feet. The color is a little lighter than it looks in the photo -- more of a tan/nude.

So underwhelmed when these came. I've a high arch and instep so prefer sandals to shoes, but these were tight where they crossed the middle of my foot and loose at my toes. If they fit better and weren't so narrow under foot, I wouldn't have minded the ankle strap either but I was not impressed and that was so disappointing.

Comfortable without being fugly. I ordered wide and it fit very well. I have a narrow heel and it worked for that too. There is a bit of cushioning which is nice in a "go to" sandal.

This is actually my very 1st purchase from Zappos and I have to say that I'm extremely pleased. I've tried these Sandals after they arrived today and I've only worn them briefly on the carpet. Even so, it's enough for me to know that I love them; they fit great and are really cute for a casual sandal. They remind me of styles from the 80's and eary 90's. I took the advise of someone else when ordering the size; ordering an 8 instead of an 8 1/2, which is perfect in my case. I'm so happy these were available in narrow width as well, which is not as common for the footwear made by Bass Co. One last thing, someone that previously postered a review said that the leather material was suede, but that's not the case. Nubuck leather can sometimes have a soft finish, but it's usually a thicker, very hardy cowhide and will typically last much longer that other types of leather, depending on wear and care of course. Thank you Zappos for having a great site and reasonable prices. And, thank you to Bass Co., for bringing this style of sandal back based on popular demand.
