Super cute shoes, but they are made of synthetic materials. The fake materials were the deal breaker for me. I have another pair of Jambus that have leather uppers and I love them. Super comfy, sporty, I get tons of compliments on them. I really wanted to keep these, but I cannot stand fake leather and the price is too high for anything but the real deal. Also, the fake leather is very stiff compared to my other leather Jambus.

I am giving these shoes one star overall because they are made of man made materials and this will cause your feet to sweat in warm climates. I love the style of the shoes and the comfort, but they just ruined it by not making the shoes out of leather. And for man made materials it does not justify the expensive price tag. You could buy Birkenstocks or Keens for that price. I bought a similar pair of Jambu shoes last year and they were falling apart by the end of the season. I thought I would give Jambu a second try with these shoes but sadly the quality just is not there.

I read all of the reviews on this shoe before ordering and am glad I did. I usually wear a 7, but I ordered half a size up in a wide width and it was a perfect fit. For comparison, I wear a 37 in Birkenstocks and a 7 in most Keens. When I first put these on, they felt really weird. I could wiggle my toes and feel that they were long enough and wide enough, but my toes were hitting the top of the shoe. I wore them around the house for a day and (this is so dumb, but it worked) I stood on my tippy toes a bunch of times to compress the foot bed. After that, they fit perfectly and my toes don't hit the top of the shoe anymore. These are very comfortable shoes. I have plantar fasciitis and I did need to put a heel insert in these shoes for that reason, but it fits easily. I have had these shoes for 2 months and wear them daily. I am on my feet a lot and have never had a blister or sore feet in these. Yesterday I walked about 4 miles around an outdoor festival and my feet felt great the whole time. My only complaint it that one little segment of the green contrast stitching was pulled out on arrival. I could have exchanged them but I decided to overlook it because I wanted to wear them.

Needed a comfortable shoe due to some leg problems. Love the cute cut out design but most of all a shoe that needs no breaking in. Put them on when they arrived and didn't take them off all day. Thank you Zappos. You make shoe buying on line a breeze.

When I first slipped them on, I worried that the top was too tight but within moments it seemed to mold to my foot. Wore them all day and they were so comfortable! Cute with pants and skirts. These are my second pair of Jambus...I have found my favorite shoes.

Love this shoe. Love Zappos. In fact, I have never wanted to buy stock in a company before, but this company is amazing for customer service. Plus, they are always updating. For instance, I bought this shoe in my normal size 7 but the toe box was too short. My feet are older with arthritis and a bunion and so I decided on a half size larger. I pressed the "exchange" button and sure enough, the new shoes came the next day...the same day that I mailed back the smaller size. Now, I live in a small town high in a mountain range and nothing gets here in one day...nothing. I have no idea how Zappos working with delivery services does it, and the shipping both ways is free for the customer! One other thing about these shoes. I disagree with the people who do not like the synthetic material. I bought the Jambu Blossom in Grey and they are adorable. Often (like a running shoe) synthetic materials breathe easier and these are exceptionally cute. There is not a cheap looking stitch on them.

I love these! They are comfortable, cute, and practical. I bought them in preparation for a trip where I will do a lot of walking and am certain my feet will not be an issue after a long day.

I get more compliments on these shoes, I've been asked many times were did you get them? My feet do not sweat in them ever, I have no clue what the comment before me is talking about, I have problems with my feet being diabetic and these are the most comfy shoes for my feet. In fact I like them so much I bought another pair for my vacation next week. Very happy with these shoes.

These are so comfy! I bought them to wear while giving massages, they were perfect right out of the box and I have worn the insole through. I need to get another set of insoles, not sure where or how to do that yet.

When my sister came to visit this summer she was wearing this shoe and I fell in love with it. So now I have a pair too! At first I thought they were too small but I wore them around the house and they quickly felt perfect. They're great with skirts, shorts, and jeans. I love 'em!

I love my new shoes! I wear orthotics, so it is difficult to find cute summer shoes that fit. These are stylish and fit great. The strap has velcro, so it can be easily adjusted. Great purchase!

This was the cutest style of this type of shoe but I was skeptical. I wear a true size 6 and I took the advice of other reviewers to go up at least 1/2 size so I got a 6.5. It fit okay but was still a tad short for my size 6 foot but likely not to need a 7, so beware and do order it 1/2 size up. It was pretty comfortable (I have bunions) and I need superior arch support and this was just okay. I wanted a shoe for extended walking in Europe that could also go with a skirt, but I could tell the small strap across the top of my foot was going to annoy me after not too long of time. Feet will swell and that small width was going to irritate that part of my foot over time. Cute but going back.

Very cute for summer and spring yet totally impractical shoes for warmer weather wear. The leather-like insole is smooth and it sticks to bare feet and gets very uncomfortably damp and sweaty if you are not wearing socks or foot covers of some kind. I would like these shoes more if the insole was something we could be comfortable in barefoot. Gummy sweaty leather insoles that are NOT removable are a definite drawback to these shoes. and there is no room to insert additional insole covers because the rubber on the toe-box lacks the depth to allow for inserts. In short, they are great if your feet do not sweat, or if you are wearing socks. Bummer of the Summer.

This was my first pair of Jambus to purchase, and while the footbed was comfy to the point of being dreamy, the rigid rubber over the toes made the shoe feel a bit short. I have the same problem with Keens. Every other brand of shoe I need a size 8, but with the rigid rubber toe guards from Keens, and now apparently with Jambus, it looks like I need an 8.5.

These Jambu Blossoms are so cute, and so comfortable! I ordered a half-size down and they fit perfectly. I'm a fashion-conscious but sporty person with a high arch, and these feel great; good support, not too narrow or wide. Getting used to the little strap felt a bit fussy at first (you need to be careful to "line it up" on top), but once on, they're great. I wore them all over St. John, USVI: hiking, to the beach, on the boat, and around town. I will be able to wear these from spring through fall with shorts, skirts, and pants. The synthetic upper doesn't breathe, but it can get wet without damage, and all the cut outs keep my feet feeling cool. These needed no break-in period needed, as there were no problem "rub" spots. Love them!

These shoes are supper cute! I've gotten many compliments on them. I wear orthotics due to back and foot issues, and was able to remove the foot bed and they fit. (I was wearing Dr. Scholls at the time, but I bet I could get my vionics in them). They are a little non-stretchy so you have to break them in.

Really cute and the insole is quite well-padded, but has almost no arch support and these seem to run small, so I have to return.

These Jambu Blossoms are the BEST. I've been looking at them for some time now and finally decided to bite the bullet. I love them. Got them in the mail, put them on and have worn them 2 days in a row with zero problems. Nice, soft footbed too. The best thing about the style is that they are feminine enough looking, yet have the more rugged walking sole. A perfect combination!!!

I wanted to love these oh-so-cute shoes but they didn't work for my long, narrow foot (11N). They are probably true to size and width for the average foot.

Very cute and comfortable. I need a wide footbed as I have Plantar Fascia so it's not easy to find cute shoes. I wore these around our mall for an hour and forgot I had them on.
