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.

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!

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.

I love these shoes. Every time I wear them people stop and ask me about them. The shoe is the prettiest metallic blue. I have worn this shoes with a maxi skirt and ankle length pant. If you want something different but pretty, buy these shoes.

Good for narrow feet! I got these in tan because I needed a flat, neutral sandal. (Actually I like that these are not totally flat though -- to me a slight lift at the heel is more comfortable.) They were comfortable immediately. I have a very narrow and skinny, non-fleshy foot so am very hard to fit. The front of my fit usually slips right out of sandals. The 7.5 narrow is a perfect fit, as it is in another pair of Bass shoes I have. My foot is stable, not sliding around. The soles of these are much lighter-weight and thinner than typical Bass shoes, which feels good when you are walking, and they are still comfy despite having less padding. However, I do not think these shoes will last very long. Maybe it is just the way I walk, but after just a couple weeks of regular wear, the front soles of the shoes are scuffing/peeling away. Every couple days I have to pull off little half-worn-off pieces of leather. For this reason, I think they are bit expensive. I'm still happy with these shoes, though, especially considering I am so hard to fit, and if I had the cash would get them in red.

These sandals or just adorable. The color is great, the fabric is wonderful, and the fit is terrific. It is not easy for me to find sandals in narrow that are both comfortable and stylish. These fit the bill!

I own two pairs of this shoe, and they are some of the most comfortable summer sandals I own. They stand up to walking all day in the city, so they're practical as well as cute. The only thing I don't like about them is that the front edge of the shoe gets chewed up if you ever get your toe caught on the sidewalk or scratch the edge against something the leather is very thin, so that area gets worn-looking quickly.

The caramel color is far lighter than shown, more of a "bone." As far as size is concerned, I was thinking they run extremely large, then I noticed I was sent a 10 (although I'd ordred an 8). Ooops, warehouse. In any case, the color is not what I'm looking for.

I have narrow feet, but the narrow size was sold out so I bought the medium. Despite that, my toes actually felt a bit squished in there. Also, the leather seemed to rub in weird places and just made the whole experience uncomfortable. I could sense that blisters were in my future, so I sent them back.

These are my favorite sandals, I have bought them for the last three years. They are super comfortable and look great with a skirt or with pants. The only down side is that they do not wear well and need to be replaced each season.

These are fabulous sandals. They look stylish and are comfortable. Perfect. The sizing runs a like small. I usually take a 7.5 in many shoes, but the Bass 8 fit me instead.

These shoes are adorable! I ordered them on a whim, as I was looking for a cute, flat sandal with good support. They remind me of mid-1970s, Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver - kind of a meld of the 1970s and the 1920s. They're sleek and dainty, and totally comfortable. I ordered the tan, but I'm totally going to order other colors, like the red! Although other reviewers found the fit to be larger than normal, or not as wide, I ordered my normal size (11), in medium, and it fits perfectly. My feet are on the narrow side, but not truly narrow. So, take that for what you will.

So sad that these didn't work out. They're cute, but the leather was so stiff and uncomfortable. Maybe that would change after a while if I spent time breaking the in, but I'm impatient with shoes. They'd give me blisters for sure. Plus, there's absolutely no arch support, and the sole is pretty thin and hard, so they're more for style than comfort. Love Zappos though! I'm a new convert, but a customer for life.

I bought this sandal because it looked simple yet elegant. Unfortunately after one summer of wearing them the top part of the sandal still bites into my toes. Otherwise the sandals are pretty comfortable, though not for long walks due to my issue with the top part of the sandal hurting my toes.
