I had purchased this exact style previously so I wasn't expecting any surprises. However, this shoe is made in China and lacks the quality of my original pair. The insole has a seam that sits directly under the ball of your foot. If you plan on doing a lot of walking in the shoe you may want to select a different style!

I have loved Ecco sandals for years, and still pull out my old black gladiators every spring. They have been my go to travel shoes for many summers. I have not been able to find this style from Ecco until now. I am so disappointed when I tried them on and they are not like the old ones. Although the footbed is nice, the straps are very loose/baggy, and the heel/ankle strap is huge. The straps float above my foot, and do not hold my foot in the footbed at all. That is not solvable for me by sizing down, it is just a shame that they did not use the specs from the older model.

I am so disappointed. I have the black ones from a few years back. This one has a very annoying rough seam running right under the toes. It is rough and it makes the area too raised to be comfortable. I am very bummed. I will return and hope that this is corrected and they bring the old style of insole back next year. Please, I hope someone is listening.

For anyone who has owned this sandal from 2 years ago and like me loved it and thought you might replace it -- Don't. You will be disappointed. Amazing, this price and the sandal is so poorly made. Rough edges on the leather straps, to the almost plastic footbed, to the beige liner which is so noticeable. I am very surprised that Ecco puts their name on this sandal. What a shame. The original for 2 seasons ago rocks. This sandal reflects the poor quality standards, but same price, we are forced to deal with over and over again.

I love these super cute sandals! Being on my feet for five hours in them - no problem! They are very comfortable! There are not many brands that have durable, yet stylish footwear for us girls with larger feet.

I wore these shoes nearly EVERY DAY from May until end of Sept, as I was traveling through India and Eastern Europe. I am a 7.5 and can wear a 37 in other brands sometimes, but with ECCO experience, I bought 38 and never looked back. Maintaing my busy and walker lifestyle was easy! I never had back nor knee pain which I get when I wear shoes with no support. Also, the color is so beautiful, since it's not white it goes with dark clothes as good as with light colors. I would liken the color to a stone when dry.

Amazing. I walked all over Australia in these without a pinch or a blister. I was worried they may look matronly. Not at all. They are now my go to sandals. If they had them in nude, I'd definitely get them again. Highly recommend.

Very cute and comfortable. I have a medium to wide width foot and this shoe works. It does, however, run big so order down a size. There is moderate arch support so if you need a really good arch look elsewhere.

These shoes are the perfect combination of style & comfort! I have received many compliments -- I think it is because of the unique styling. The blue are a bit more casual & sporty because of the white sole but can still be paired with a sundress. I also have the black and find these to have a more sophisticated look to them.

I bought two pairs black and beige a couple of seasons ago. They are still in decent shape. These are not only comfortable, but stylish. I love these shoes and probably need to buy another couple of pair for this coming summer. The denim in blue looks very nice.

The Glash Low Gladiator is awesome! This is my second pair. I am always seeking ultra comfortable shoes with style, which is not easy to find! This shoe does it. I could wear it walking miles and it is attractive with narrow leather bands. It not only provides comfort, but gives you the galdiator-look without the bulk of traditional galiators!

Fantastic sandals that I used almost every day of my 3 week vacation in Italy. After reading some reports about the arches and knowing that I would be using these hard, I added some Pedag Step 16647 Symmetrical Self Adhesive Arch Support Inserts. I tried them against the Merrell Buzz Leather (close second), ECCO Sensata Cross Strap Sandal, Merrell Enlighten Eluma Breeze, and the Naot Footwear Rongo.

I love this shoe. It was my second pair. In the photo the lining is light colored. The pair I received had black lining. I have no idea why it still seems the same composition. My first pair had light colored lining.

This is an updated version of an earlier style that I wore into the ground over the course of 4 summers. These are just as comfortable and well-made. A tad pricey but worth every penny.

These are the best sandals I have ever purchased. Most comfortable, the mold to your feet and feel like walking on air. I bought them for vacation trip to Hawaii and they went well with everything except the beach. They are not meant to get wet. Very soft leather. May buy them in another color. Well worth the money.

Looking for a flat yet stylish sandal for an outdoor wedding creekside, these came a very close second - cute, great comfort and great fit - but will sadly return them because I can't justify keeping them!

These shoes are cute, but what I love the most is that they are extremely comfortable. I walked long distances in them yesterday, and they were still comfortable at the end of the day.

I just love this sandal. It is my second pair. It is extremely comfortable, stylish and durable, my first pair lasted for years. You can walk for hours and never feel fatigued. I highly recommended it to anyone.

Truly the most comfortable sandals I have ever owned. Walked Disney World for 12 hours on my first wearing. And they're cute too! Came home and ordered a second pair in another color.

This shoe is fabulous as it is the perfect mixture of comfort and style. I searched high and low for a sandal to wear for treking thru Europe for three weeks that was going to be above all comfortable yet also stylish. I was a bit concerned as it did not seem as if the footbed was padded enough, however I wore these everyday and my feet never hurt. They were comfortable from the start - absolutely no break-in period was required. They fit my bill in every aspect! You can not go wrong with these if you are going to be on your feet for long periods of time.

Very comfortable and stylish. Good padding in the sole and seems a bit thicker than one of last year's models, which I ordered and returned. Zappos is THE BEST!

I love this shoe, but the straps over the toes are way too wide, and there is no way to tighten them. I have the same shoes from a different vendor in beige, and those straps are not too wide. It's almost as if those cardboard molds for shipping stretched the straps out too much. I have to return them because they flop around on my feet. Rats!

I'm in love with these shoes, they are bar none the most comfortable sandals I've ever owned. I really expected that thin straps would rub hotspots after a while of walking, but I wore these several days in a row right out of the box. Then I took them on vacation and in one day walked TEN MILES in them all around Portland. Zero trouble and plenty of compliments. Because I love shoes and I'm bad at saving money, I honestly feel like ordering more pairs just so I can always have them!
