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.

I love the shoes. I get a lot of compliments on them. Easy to order and if need to return is also easy. I had ordered another pair of sandals but were too big and had no problem with the ease of returning and getting my account credited again. Love your shoes!

Absolutely love these sandals! The only downfall is that the gold piece on the right side kind of hurt me. Hopefully once they get broken in, it will stop.

Straps are too short. I have a very hard time buckling. If you have any kind of larger ankle they won't buckle. have to take to shoemaker to make straps longer. Shoes very comfortable and very cute.

The DV Archer is a classic sandal and for a very reasonable price too. I ordered 2 pairs in an 8 (I'm usually an 8-8.5) but had to return them and order in a 7.5 because they absolutely run a 1/2 size large. On a side note - eventually one of the pairs metal detail in the front started to come off, so I called Zappos and they completely stood behind their product! They are sending me a new pair - free of charge. I was extremely impressed with how well they handled the complaint and quickly resolved the issue. Overall, the Archer is a great, comfy and stylish shoe. Just remember to order a half size down and always let Zappos know if you have any issues.

I ordered 2 pair of these shoes in my usual size (given the 'true to size' comments); however, ended up having to exchange them for the next size down. I wear an 8.5, occasionally a 9 - & am even pregnant right now! - but the 8 is what ended up working for me. I have a slightly wide foot, and these look and feel good in that respect, too. Other than the initial sizing issue, these are great. I wanted something chic for summer that I could walk most of a day in, that wasn't a flip flop (Havaianas are my usual go-to), and these fit the bill! After a several wearings I've noticed a few scuffs on the metallic toe detail, but given the design and at this price, I'm not surprised nor did it really upset me that much. It's hard to notice if you're not really looking. Though there is no arch support, these are comfy enough to do a day of walking. No straps rub me wrong, and the selection of colors/metallics is so good I might have to get a couple more pair. Recommended!

Brands I'd also recommend: Havaiana, Paez, Nine West

I ordered a 7.5 because of the reviews here, instead of my normal 8, and they fit perfectly. The shoes are cute and comfortable, but after a few wears the gold bar on the toe of the shoe started falling off on one shoe. A week later, the other one started falling off. I'm going to have them fixed and it's a bummer, the quality is definitely not there in terms of construction. They are good looking and easy to walk in though.

Great sandal...stylish and versatile! Runs very large, so buy at least 1 size down. I have 2 pairs of this sandal, a 9.5 and a 9 and I normally wear a size 10. The size 9 fits well with room to move. I get a lot of compliments on this shoe, would definitely recommend.

These shoes are beautiful! They are quite elegant on the feet, with just the slim gold bar and a bit of black strap showing. I ended up returning them, but only because I overbought and could not really think of where I would wear these. If I were in an Accumulating phase, I would have kept them anyway. They are lovely sandals. I wear an 8½ trending to 9 and the 8½ fit me perfectly in length. My heels are narrow and the heel cup on these is so small I do not think heel width would make much difference. I do not think the front would work for wide feet.

I live in NYC so take this review with a grain of salt if walking in a dirty city isn't your primary mode of transportation. These shoes look great but are only meant for a few wears. Hard to get on and the fabric on the bottom gets dirty quickly and easily. They also don't help with the keeping callouses away in the summer because of the fabric sole.

I love these sandals. I am often asked about the brand name/where to order. I have these in silver and am planning to get another pair in a different neutral color. I have really scrawny ankles and the straps still fit around them. Very comfortable (even for walking) and a good price. Hopefully they are durable because I am definitely wearing the heck out of them!

This sandal is fairly comfortable for having no arch support or cushion. The metal bar isn't uncomfortable, which I thought it might be. The straps are adjustable so that your foot won't slide around. Plus they're super cute. I've had quite a few compliments on these, which is always nice. I'd consider buying more in other colors.

Pretty sandal but I couldn't get it to fit properly. The back did not meet with my heel so I ordered a smaller size and I still had an excess of shoe in the front. Gave up and sent them back.

I loved these sandals - they do feel slightly big. I would get 1/2 a size down. Unfortunately, this is my 2nd pair after Zappos replaced my first pair. The metal part on the front by the toe starts to come up after probably 5-10 wears. I received a replacement thinking it was a fluke and, again, the same thing happened. They are cute if you're planning on wearing them a handful of times for not a long time. If these are going to be your everyday flip flops, I'd go with something else.

After wearing the shoes for a week they starting falling apart. The thong strap is coming apart from the sole. The silver is all cracked up on the sides and the stitching is coming apart on the strap. I usually love DV shoes and have many pairs but this shoes is by far the worst on durability. The style is cute the comfort is good the shoes is just falling apart.

I'm in love with these shoes. I now have them in 3 different colors (coral, nude, and black). I'm not big on heels/wedges so have been wearing these like crazy. You can dress them up or down and I absolutely love the gold accents...makes all the difference. If you're considering buying these amazing shoes, I say do it! You won't regret it!

These are very comfortable and it is nice to have flat sandals that you can dress up or down. They may be just a bit long but not enough to make me want half a size down from my normal size.

I loved these sandals so much (got them in black) but after only 2 months of wearing them they are starting to fall apart. The gold plate on the toe fell off one and the other is starting to turn a rust color. So sad!

I bought these in the nude color, and they look beautiful with the gold details. The quality is good for the price. Also, you can barely feel the seam down the center of the footbed. I've walked miles in these with no blisters! I'm usually a 9, but wear an 8.5 in Dolce Vita shoes, and 8.5 was perfect.

Very cute sandal and comfortable. The nonadjustable strap that falls around my foot is a bit loose but not enough to make the shoe uncomfortable. The straps that fall between the toes and around the ankle are just fine. I do wish the yellow gold accents were not as shiny but it may dull a bit over time.

I really love the look if these shoes! However, the straps that extend across the top of the shoe don't adjust and it is a bit too large and somewhat "floppy." I'm trying to decide to keep them or ship them back.

While these shoes were great, especially the colors, I have a skinny ankle and felt they wiggled and weren't secure on my ankle. I am going to purchase a leather hole maker to make the strap tighter on them.
