I bought the green with the tan back strap. On the website they looked really cute and stylish, but when I got them I saw that the metal looked cheap and the color was more green and less teal than on the website. Also, the t-strap between the toes was very uncomfortable the moment I put them on. I was surprised that the reviews for this shoe were so good, because in person they are uncomfortable, cheap-looking and not stylish.

At first, I thought these were amazing. Great style, nice cushion, much better quality than most shoes at this price. And then I took a step. I could feel that strip of gold stitching along the base. It was so annoying. Like when the toe seam on your tights gets under your foot! Ugh. So sad, I had to send them back. I don't know how anyone could walk in them with that line of stitching.

I love them! I get compliments all the time and they are super comfortable. I would buy more shoes from this company. I already have 2 pairs and they both look and feel great.

Very comfortable and stylish sandal. The metallic accents add a bit of elegance without being too blingy. The stitching down the center of the sole feels a little strange initially but you get used to it. I've received lots of compliments on them and they suit a narrower foot. The contrasting black and tan is also a nice feature.

This sandal is comfortable for wearing during a short duration. Prolonged walking may result in a blister right under the hardware on the T strap in the front.

I'm kind of a shoe snob, so I was hesitant to buy these due to the low price point. However, I think they are very well made for the price, and the color on the screen was very true to the actual shoe (I bought the Cognac color) Unfortunately, I have stubby, short toes and this cut of sandal is just -- well, unflattering on me, personally. By the way, I'm usually in between a 7.5 and size 8, and I probably needed the 8. But no sweat -- thanks to Zappos' great return policy, I'm sure I'll find another perfect flat sandal.

Very fun shoe! Great color for summer. True to size. Leather between toe takes getting used to. Probably not a great shoe for walking long distances (if you're looking for support). I will wear them for going out for dinner, special occasions etc.

I loved these, but sadly have to return after wearing for 3 hrs of light walking. I'm a true 7.5 and should've ordered an 8... not comfy.

I am extremely picky about sandals. I do a lot of walking in NYC, so comfort is a must, but traditional "comfort" sandals aren't really my style. I want them to be fashionable and versatile...not easy to find. I have been searching since March with no luck, until now. These sandals look much more expensive than they are, and are actually very comfortable to walk in. I like that there is no elastic by the buckle, so I don't have to worry about them wearing out or stretching. I also love that you can adjust the fit by moving the back strap up or down, and as others mentioned, the metal detail on the T-strap moves up or down like a toggle, for a completely custom fit. There is a slight wedge, but not enough to make a difference while walking. I got the black sandals with brown accents, and they will go with everything. This could be my perfect sandal!

Comfortable for a T-strap sandal. The design/placement of the straps give a much better support than others alike. I have owned multiple t-strap sandals and these are the most comfortable I have purchased. T-strap sandals usually kill your feet but these offer a much better fit and support. Also, I was surprised to discover that you can slide the metal piece a little further up/down to adjust tightness/support. Love that! Easy to walk with these. Sole is cushiony and has a slight wedge. I can see myself wearing these a lot, I hope DV does not discontinue them! Brown color is a perfect neutral. True to size.

Hooray-this sandal fits true to size! I will buy DV by Dolce Vita again for their reliability! I usually wear a 7 in a sandal or heel, but always have to question if a brand runs small or large, and often I have to size up for flats, etc. But the 7's fit perfectly! I haven't worn them around enough yet to speak on comfort, but so far so good. I think the SALE price is true to what they're worth, given it's all synthetic materials. All in all a good purchase and a great experience with Zappos.

I love these sandals! They are very comfortable and such a great neutral color to have. I have been wearing them often. I really love the little details like the gold around the toe and python strap in the back. I am buying another pair for my mother-in-law.

A really lovely, stylish, simple, comfortable sandal. The color matches with everything, the straps are rounded, so no friction burns, even when walking for long periods. True to size, exactly as shown in photos.

Sexy little sandal and so versatile. It's true, they do look more expensive then they are. I think some of the metal-looking details are actually plastic, which I'm fine with. Feet slip around a little bit, but I think I just need to tighten them up and wear them in.

Ordered these because I already own a pair and wanted to make sure I can wear them for years. Size runs true, get lots of compliments and they are comfortable and stylish, go with everything. I also own them in black. My go to sandal for style and comfort. Ordering was quick and easy and received them within a week. Highly recommend this brand and Zappos.

I have several Dolce Vita sandals and have always purchased the same size without any problems. Unfortunately, I will have to find a half size larger in these because the buckle strap wasn't long enough even though my foot fit perfectly in these shoes. Other than sizing issues, I would definitely recommend these shoes.

These shoes were so uncomfortable between the toes I had to take them off immediately and return them. Too bad because they are super cute.

Cute shoe. Very comfortable. Had to exchange my usual size, 8.5 for a 9. The shoe fit but the back ankle strap was not long enough on the 8.5 to close around my foot. The 9 was okay.

These are gorgeous! Very cushiony, but I will admit that the piece in between the toes will start to hurt but totally worth it .

I wear an 8 in heels. I needed the 7.5 in these...which is unusual for me for sandals. In the 8s, I felt like my toes were slipping off as I walked. The 7.5s worked better for me. I got the teal. It is appropriately vibrant (not glaring). A nice shoe!

These sandals are gorgeous and very comfortable but for the price tag I expected leather or nicer vinyl (I did see this before ordering). They are true to size and width and the brass details don't rub or hurt. There was a flaw on the top of one shoe when I took it out of the box but Zappos will fix that without problems. If you don't mind an expensive faux leather then definitely pick these up, they are great!

I received this shoe in 2 colors: black with brown contrast and teal with animal contrast. I absolutely love my shoes! I like the modern, simple and clean design. Like the cushion as well. Thank you and I really like the amazing Zappos shipping and customer service!

These are so cute! I had been looking for a cute pair of flat sandals for a long time and never liked anything that I found. These are even nicer looking than the picture, very well made and finished, elegant and comfortable. I am definitely getting them in another color.
