I have been looking for a simplistic, yet sexy ankle-strap sandal since I left mine abroad two years ago. However, I didn't want to break the bank in the process. Thankfully, I have exactly what I want and more for a great price. These shoes fit my semi-wide, size 11 feet very well, while still guaranteeing that my feet are still cute, comfy, and ultrafeminine. I have sufficient ankle strap width to not feel too confined and have a reasonable arch. I loved these shoes so much that I ordered two pairs in black and one pair in gold. I am absolutely pleased and will be keeping these lovelies.

I have small, narrow feet and I read this shoe runs larger, so I ordered a size 6 (I'm normally between a 6 and 6.5). The style is very cute and sexy, however I will be returning the shoe because the strap that goes over my toes is sewn so tightly across the shoe, I couldn't fit my foot in. I have never experienced any shoe like this! I'm not a big girl... Only 5'2 110lbs and I could not get my size 6 foot into the shoe! Ridiculous. I'm sorry I have to return them.

Order a size down! I normal wear a 10 and had to order a 9. The strap across the toe isn't too comfortable so I took the shoes to a show maker to out a comfort band under the strap.

These are great looking, sexy shoes. I'm excited to pair them with a silver dress I just purchased. I'm predicting that they won't be the most comfortable shoes in the world (but most heels over 4 inches aren't). I haven't worn them for an extended period of time but I can already tell that the toe strap digs into my foot and there is little to no arch support. Also, I'm normally an 8 in strappy sandals but I ordered the 7.5 and they fit perfectly!

Jury is out on this one. It's a cute style but you certainly get what you pay for. It's inexpensive for a reason. I wear an 8-8.5 and an 8 was the perfect length with these. Some reviewers commented the toe strap was too small. I actually felt it was a little loose (I have narrow feet). The faux leather doesn't breath and makes your feet sweat on the bottom, and also isn't very sturdy. Out of the box, some of the silver has flaked off to expose white underneath. There are some glue spots and wrinkles in the material. Nobody is going to mistake these for manolo sandals, but if you buy these expecting to thrash 'em then trash 'em, they might be for you.

Gorgeous and classy shoes, but my little pinky toes were screaming in the first five minutes of trying them on. I'm all for sacrificing comfort for style, but this was more than I could handle. So the search for the perfect black heel continues.

Love at first site! These have been in my favorites for some time, I figured my birthday would be great time to indulge in the gold pair! I love Zappos! I ordered them Thursday and they arrived Friday (on my birthday). In pumps, peep toes, and heeled sandals I typically size up to 8½. After reading the reviews I took a chance and sized down. That was excellent decision. The 8 fit perfectly! They are very comfortable and sexy right out of the box. I danced all night and had no pain! Thank you Zappos and Michael Antonio!

While these shoes look absolutely beautiful, the strap across the toes is way too tight. These will be going back.

YIKES! I bought these to go with a gold cocktail dress, but was very disappointed when I received them. I wear the same size in every shoe I've ever owned, but it was very clear as soon as I slipped these one that they were WAY too big. Not only that, but for the height of the heel there was absolutely no support at all. (And this is from someone who is used to strutting in sky-high heels) Oh well, back they go. If you insist on buying them, go a full size down and be prepared for some serious foot pain at the end of the night.

Good looking shoe, but unfortunately it runs big. I can never remember a time where I haven't fit in a size 7 on Zappos, but I'd have to go down to a 6.5 in these which I've never done. It made me a little leary of this brand since it's really inexpensive (maybe you get what you pay for)? I opted to just return them because even if I get a 1/2 size down, the overall fit just didn't feel right. Oh well.

My shoe size is 6 all the way around, but this shoe was too big. My foot slid towards the front of the shoe and left a huge gap in the back. I would get a smaller size, but I'm afraid my toes would hang over the edge like a monkey. Oh well! I didn't run into any problems with the strap over the toe as others have mentioned.

This is the second time I have ordered a pair of shoes from Michael Antonio and without a doubt the last. The shoes are poorly designed and are incredibly uncomfortable. It is really a shame given that the styles look good but at the end of the day, it's got to feel good as well.

I didn't fall in love with this pair of shoes like I thought I would, but they really are cute shoes. I just wasn't too crazy about them when I tried them on for the first time. The ankle strap fit fine but the shoe itself had a little extra room for my feet to slide around in (I wear a size 6 and ordered a 6) and I was terrified I would twist an ankle. I could've bought insoles for them but I didn't bother since I just wasn't in love with them to begin with. I would order from Zappos again though.

These are such a beautiful shoes, but poorly executed. Granted, I normally wear a 5 and I do have pretty narrow feet, but these shoes are gigantic! I definitely think they run a full size too large because I had a good ¾ to 1 inch of shoe to spare. Even insoles did not help keep them in place. I had to return them. I am very sad.

Bought these for a bridesmaid dress! Love how simple and elegant they are! But I felt like my feet slid down in them a bit due to how high the heel is and angle of them. They did last all night though! I would have bought them again!

Just got these shoes today. Good looking shoe but and I am going to return them. I am very small framed woman (5 ft 2 in. tall) and less than 100 lbs. These shoes gave me absolutely no support. I felt like I could easily twist my ankle in these. I will keep shopping.

The shoe was to my size; however, the shoe is very narrow and I have a narrow foot but my foot hung over the sides and my toes did not fit all the way under the toe strap. My pinkie toe stuck out. I couldn't even take steps in them. I am sending them back.

Absolutely love this pair! Very stylish and fashion, can wear to both parties and work. I ordered half size down based on other reviews, fits perfectly. They are comfortable considering with such a high heel, maybe also because I have narrow feet. I can walk around for a whole night no problem, not sure whether they are still fine if you dance all night...will recommend the shoes!

I sized down half a size (I am normally an 8, and I got a 7½) based on the reviews. That was a great fit. These are very cute. They are a bit stiff. But I suppose that is a trade off for the low price. I got a horrible blister the first time I wore them. I hope they break in soon, or I may try some pads. I only rated them four stars instead of five because of the horrible pain the first time I wore them.

I love these shoes so much that I am ordering a second pair in black as backup. I originally ordered the silver to wear on my wedding day and loved them so much that I had to get the black too. I see many found these shoes to be ill-fitting and uncomfortable, but I found it to be just the opposite. But I will say that this is probably because I have very high arches and shoes support them very well, plus I used to be on my feet for over eight hours a day in very high heels when I worked in retail. So I guess I would say these shoes are best suited for ladies with narrow, high-arched feet who are no stranger to sky high heels.

These are simple and classic. Even thought the heel is high, the platform base gives you support so that you don't feel as if you are tilting forward. I have skinny ankles so you will need to put an extra hole in the strap.

Beautiful shoe, but just didn't work for me. Unlike the other reviewers, I found it ran very true to size and not large at all. And even though it has a platform, the heel was still too steep to walk comfortably in. I really wish it had worked for me - looked lovely, as long as I wasn't trying to walk in them!

I am a size 7 1/2. I always fit into my shoes because I have a perfect foot. These shoes are to big. Order a smaller size. In addition to running big, one show is bigger than the other. Ridiculous.

This shoes run big. I vary between 8 and 8.5, mostly favoring 8. I ordered an 8 is it was HUGE on me. I exchanged them for a 7.5 and that fit great. Love these shoes.
