These shoes are so on-trend, funky and fashionable that I thought they surely couldn't be comfortable, but they were, and are! They have a decent heel, but I never feel like me toes are pushing into the end of the shoe. They are cushy, and the Velcro strap helps you get a custom fit. Even after wearing them all day my feet do not hurt, which is a miracle with me and heels. I get lots of compliments on them and, best of all, they are vegan (not made with any animal byproducts). Hooray!

Wow! Wow, and yep … Love 'em! Great fit, true to size. (I have a wide foot so these felt true to a regular, not a narrow "B" width.)

I have bunions on my feet, so I really struggle to find shoes that did not apply pressure on that area. I also have planter fasciitis thanks to my high arches. Finding a good, cute, reasonably priced pair of dress or casual dress shows is nearly impossible! However, these are amazing! The rubber sole absorbs any friction from walking on hard surfaces, they are nice and wide without being too wide, and they are very comfortable. My co-workers are wanting to order them too, and I am thinking of getting the black ones too! I got the tobacco and teal ones! Love them. I do usually wear a 6.5, but I got a 7 in these and they fit perfectly. Highly recommended.

Liked them with the first 2 times of wearing then the right shoe started falling apart. Looks like the sole was departing from the top.

Love this shoe! So cute and relatively comfortable (as long as you don't have to just stand for long periods of time). Have had other J-41s and they wear well. Would definitely recommend!

I'm a big fan of J-41. When I saw this model I ordered it immediately. :) Wonderful shoes, very comfortable and stylish. I read in several reviews that this model runs smaller than marked, so I bought half size bigger. It wasn't a right decision. I think it's true to size. But I kept mine anyway, cause I'm planning to wear it during cold time, so with wool socks it's perfect. :)

Love this brand! Comfortable shoe right from the start. I did notice it runs a bit larger, so I do have to wear thicker socks or adjust the straps as tight as possible. I like the height and the nice blue stitching detail. Have gotten several compliments.

A nice shoe for walking. I spent a year waiting for my size to be available after discovering this shoe last year at a DSW store in LA. I live in PA. Zappos came through! I created an "alert" with my size/color request, and as soon as it was available, I ordered them. I wore them to an interview, in LA, fingers crossed!

Love these J41s! I own 2. They are excellent for in the office and on the field. They hold their look through thick & thin. I cannot say enough about these shoes! I own 2 pairs.

This is extremely comfortable. It is also dressy & cute. This shoe has a little height, but can go all day. I was a little worried about how the Velcro would hold up, but it stays on very well. I have high arches and a wide-ish foot. These work for me very, very well. I have had for almost a year. They look brand new. Great, go-to shoe!

Cute with "skinny"pants or black tights and dresses. The pair I got are black, I guess the colors very. On my feet 8 hours a day and feeling good in this shoe. I went down a size and I pull the Velcro over as far as possible for a good fit.

I love these shoes. Bought them while attending a conference and stood in them all day long, and they were still comfortable at the end of the day. They are great walking shoes. They run slightly larger, but I wear socks with pants and they are fine, and with the Velcro strap, I can tighten them when wearing tights. I have the black ones, but they do look more grey than black. I have gotten tons of compliments on them.

These shoes are so wonderful (I have in both colors) that I am buying another black-gray pair so that I can "trash" the ones I have on an upcoming trip to Paris. These are more comfortable than any walking shoe I own. I have had 2 surgeries on my left door so have high standards for comfort, and these shoes are the ticket. I'm an 8.5M and these are true to size. Super cute, too, and I get lots of compliments.

Brands I'd also recommend: Jambu (same company as J-41)

Loved these shoes. I take a 7 to 7 1/2 and ordered the 7 1/2. Fit great. Problem was the right strap hit just at the ankle bone and kept rubbing it. Had to return the shoes.

These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn! I am short and these have a small lift/heel to them so they are perfect to give that added height so I do not have to hem all my pants. Can wear at work all day and still feel great!

I love these shoes.. they are light weight and make my feet HAPPY.. I am on my feet daily for many hours and Jambu shoes have never let a girl down... the only bad thing about Jambu shoes, is that your feet are NOT happy in any other shoes. I am now spoiled and my feet only want to be in Jambu's just thankful they make so many wonderful, beautiful shoes. I am a shoe-a-holic and I admit it... thanks Jambu.

Brands I'd also recommend: Jambu only, love their shoes...

Find the Toe Box too short, toes seemed squished at end. The rest of the shoe is very comfortable. Maybe I should try a Wide or different size. Bummer, a totally cute shoe!

I've been looking for a vegan stylish shoe I can wear to work with skirts or pants and thought I found them. Sadly,I have to send them back. Fit and comfort are true to size but still two issues. First, I wore them for a full 12 hours, standing and walking at work and out to dinner. So disappointed in how my feet felt. Ankle is cut high on the shoe which rubbed me raw and gave me a nice blister. Second, I wore them without socks for a few hours which left my feet feeling sweaty and hot which is not typical for me. With socks, they were okay but since I love to wear shoes without socks, they are (sadly) going back. I did receive a ton of compliments, though. So cute!

I was very excited to get these shoes and I went back and forth for a long time because I have never spent so much on shoes before. I was very disappointed, they are two different colors, and it's extremely noticeable. The style and the fit would great. They did run a little big for me. I usually wear a 10 and got a 9.5 because the 10's were sold out, and they were still a tad big on me. Sadly I am returning them.

Such a cute shoe - but just not a good fit for me. The toe box seemed very short, while the heels were wide. I had gaps on either side, even with a sock. The footbed felt nice. Sides of the shoes came up too high under my ankle bone. Darling style, but not a good shoe for me at all.

I love J-41 shoes, but these are probably the ugliest shoes made by them. I got a size 10 and it fit fine. Toes were a little raised up and there was a rocking feeling to the platform, but the comfort is not an issue, it's the ugliness of the shoe. Returning.
