These are beautiful and so comfortable! The material is a very soft and cushiony leather, although there's no arch support. I got this in the nude and it looks great with the gold accents. The color is accurate online. The gold bar on the top doesn't affect your walking. I'm usually a size 6 in sandals and these fit perfectly. You can tighten the straps along the front since it's really just one strap that goes all around your foot, which is really nice and convenient, so I think these sandals will work even if you have a narrower foot. I love these and I can't wait to wear them out! I felt like a goddess just trying them on in my room!

The shoes are more comfortable that other sandals because of the subtle wedge; however, the (unnecessary?) seam that runs the length of the sole of the shoe gets very uncomfortable after walking for a couple of hours in them. I'd ignore that if the shoe didn't break 2 weeks after I bought them - the loop that holds the ankle strap at the back of my foot ripped open. Not sure if this happened because the shoe isn't meant to be walked in for 3 hours a day, or if it's because of poor construction. The shoe is beautiful & pretty comfortable but buyers beware - have some leather glue or a good shoe repair shop in the back of your mind.

Like everyone else, I love these sandals for the most part. I wear them all the time and quickly walked out the few discomforts of breaking them in. Yes, the gold bar is noticeable at times but not a hindrance and I echo everyone else in saying that you could probably go down a size if you are in between. However I purchased the "nude" color and it is quite a light cream and isn't a true nude for anyone but the lightest skin tone. If you're looking for a sandal to disappear on your foot, this is not it.

These are super cute sandals! I was in need of a new pair of flat sandals this season and came across these! I chose the cream nude color because its a neutral and goes with everything! I love all the gold accents on the toe and top of the sandal. The only con for me was that the two straps on the side are a little loose. So if you have narrow feet like me that is something to think about!

I have been eyeballing these sandals for at least a month and the only reason I was hesitant was because of the price. While I did not want to spend so much on a pair of sandals, I just could not resist the neon yellow! These sandals are as I expected; comfortable, cute, and trendy (Note: Kim K. can be seen wearing these in various colors). Aside from that, I am loving these sandals, loving the neon, and loving the speedy delivery but I am still not crazy about the price. All in all; buy them, if you have the cash to spare.

I purchased these sandals in black and pink. I haven't worn the pink yet because it looks kind of cheap (thinking about returning it actually). The black ones are great though! The look is always chic - but the right strap felt super loose and when I tried making an additional hole, I ended up tearing up the strap. So I spent more money fixing it. Overall though they're terrific in a neutral tone.

I really like these shoes. They offer a bit more arch support than many other summer sandals, although still minimal. They are attractive and I have had no issues breaking them in between the toes, around the ankle, or in the back.

Super cute and chic. I've received many compliments. They do run big, however. I got a 7.5 which I'm pretty solid in but could have used a 7 or 6.5...they are also somewhat slippery - it's as if the bottom toe area is covered in cloth so you may want to pick up some traction stick-ons! Overall they are fantastic and have become my go-to summer sandals.

Fantastic sandals! I own 3 pairs in different colors! Note, however, if you can't decide on a size go down not up in size. I can wear an 8 1/2 or 8 and in this shoe I am a definite 8 with some room to spare. Highly recommended!

Despite there being no arch (I have arch pads that fit this type of sandal)...and narrower (okay because my foot is not wide), I love the way it fits and looks, so am keeping it. Footbed doesn't look overly padded but just fine, even for my problem foot. Originally I ordered my true size...looked a whole size larger and my heel wouldn't stay on the shoe. Returned those and ordered a size smaller and another pair a half size smaller. The half size smaller is the best fit and my heel doesn't go over the edge of the shoe! I love the understated look...will complement dressy to casual outfits. Touch Up Carsons gold clutch matches perfectly but I bought the last one. Hint, hint, Zappos!

I absolutely love these shoes. I bought them in the hot pink color and get compliments on them all the time. They're totally a staple in my summer wardrobe. The only small thing to look out for is that the gold bar on top might start to make the top of your foot hurt a tiny bit if you wear them for a full day.

I usually wear between and 8 and 8.5. I bought these in the 8.5 and they are too big, so I'm returning for the 8. I felt no rubbing between the toes and it seems like once I get the right size, they will feel very secure on my foot. An attractive shoe.

So elegant! I got these in Nude. Unlike many nude sandals out there, this one isn't a yellowish light tan (that can sometimes look a little dirty), this nude color has a pink undertone that looks clean and blends in perfectly with my skin. The gold accent on top adds a little glam to the chic casual style. And it does not get in the way or rub the the back of my feet at all. I wear these on a daily basis now as they go with almost every outfit. I've gotten many compliments with them. I do have to admit that these have no arch support and ankle support is minimal. Another minor complaint is that the sandal's buckle strap makes it a little hard to put on and take off quickly. But I think that's just 'cause I'm too used to slipping in and out of flats. Bottom line, I love them! Give them a go!

I was honestly surprised at how comfortable and pretty these shoes were. The gold accents give the shoe a great classy touch (while not irritating my feet), and the straps on the side actually help to make my feet look a bit narrower which I appreciate! I walked around Manhattan for an afternoon the day after I had received these shoes, and they were so unbelievably comfortable - way more so than my usual flip flops!

Very cute style and comfy! I like the overall look of the sandal, but there is a decorative seam on the foot bed that is done with a gold thick thread and it bothers the bottom of my foot. I have kept the sandals for now, but I don't know if I could take that seam rubbing me all day. Its too bad they decided to get creative with the extra thread they had!

I love these so much I ordered 2 colors. The only issue was the straps were a little loose around my foot but at this price it was worth having them shortened.

The cutest shoe! I will be wearing this all summer. I bought this shoe in nude and it will go with everything in my wardrobe. The only catch is that the shoe is cut a little narrow by the toes. It's ok but I have to keep readjusting my feet when I walk so my pinky toe doesn't hang off the shoe. I tried going a half size bigger than normal, but those were way too big. Not a deal breaker though since these shoes are so cute!!

Visually a beautiful shoe, can be dressed up or down. I was so excited to order and receive these sandals since they reviews rated them so high. Everyone's foot is different. I UNFORTUNATELY found them very uncomfortable. The gold bar hits between my toes and the strap around my ankle is loose. They are beautiful shoes, the gold accents are very nice and the leather is good quality...give them a try, you will probably be very glad you did, so many colors to choose from.

I love love love this shoe but for me it ran very big. I'm normally between a 7 and a 7 1/2 in sandals. The 7 1/2 was way too big, I sent it back for a 7 and though they fit OK, I probably could even go a 1/2 size smaller. There's just some space in the back between the back of my ankle and the shoe. These shoes are great and I get compliments all the time. The nude color is so versatile and fun for summer. Definitely recommend!
