I've never spent this much for shoes but these shoes are well worth the price. They are so comfortable. I'm a teacher and on my feet all day long. My feet don't feel tired at the end of the day whenever I have these shoes on. Every time I wear them I get compliments. I do, however, have one suggestion. These shoes run about a half size too large so you might want to consider this when placing your order. I wear a size 7 US and ordered a 38. They are a bit too big so a 37 might have been the better choice.

These felt great in the store, but after an hour I had bloody ankles from the straps rubbing. A month later, my ankles are still slightly bruised. Wish I could return them. Loved them, and the footbed is so comfortable. But I'll never wear them again. Hate that I wasted the money.

These look really good on and the adjustable straps help with the width. I wish the footbed had more support or wasn't so hard. Hard on the heels, ball and no arch support. I'm going to look into sandal inserts because I really want to keep these.

Very cute and comfortable shoe. Looks great on. But I have very high arches and this does not provide the support I need. The 5 rating is for comfort and style but this would drop to 3 if the arch support was being considered.

Haven't had a chance to really wear these outside the house due to the winter weather, but they feel very comfortable so far and I'm looking forward to wearing them! The color is lighter than picture, more a light grey. I love the big Velcro buttons!

This is one fantastic wedge - comfortable and still supportive. It gives you a little height but is not uncomfortably high. You can get a super custom fit with the hook and loop closure. And it fits true to size!

These are the cutest shoes ever. They are also super comfortable. I did not even have to break these babies in! I actually bought them in two colors and wanted more because they are all so dang cute that it was hard to decide!

Comfy, cute, the strap width is just right, and I love velcro closing. Sizing is generous. I really like the slightly distressed grey leather, with the antiqued pewter buttons. I am new to Taos shoes, but just ordered a pair of boots that are also very comfy and casual.

Love these shoes! They are wonderfully comfortable and stylish. I wear them so much that I bought a second pair as a backup. After seeing me wear these, both my sisters bought a pair, so I'm assuming they thought they looked great.

Stylish, perfect heel height & arch support with adjustable toe & ankle straps. My fave shoes now, I have 4 pair in different colors. Out of the box, on your feet & out the door to wear all day.

These are honestly the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. They are like Birkenstocks on a wedge. I have bunions and because of the adjustable toe strap, I have had zero problems in this department. I can wear these for hours on end, walk long distances, and still feel great. These are the score of the century. Everyone I know who has these is all about them. It makes me wonder if Taos uses this footbed for all their shoes? Because if so, I am stocking up .

I bought these sandals to wear with a silk caftan to a wedding. They appear more orange in the photo than they actually are. When they arrived I was disappointed because the color was off. However, they are gorgeous. I just kept procrastinating about sending them back. Finally I put them on and they are so comfortable and beautiful on the foot. I love wearing them! You can be subtly dressy without looking like you are trying too hard. Great look and comfort. Well worth the money.

These shoes are amazing! I purchased for a trip I was taking and was a little worried about "hitting the road" with new shoes. We walked about 6 miles each day and they were perfect! Very comfortable and with velcro closures the adjusted perfectly!

These shoes are great for wide feet, with the adjustable straps, they are so comfortable even with a heel. The "navy" color is quite light, more of a wedgewood blue, or light blue jean look. It's very pretty but I needed a true navy. I have these in taupe which is really pretty and very flattering, even with thicker legs and kept the black patent "parade". Definitely worth the money.

I love these shoes! I have a bone spur that cannot be operated on. So buying shoes with any kind of a heel is an act of desperation for me. I have tried on countless shoes only to find that they cause me pain. These shoes, however, are the most comfortable walking shoes I have purchased. The adjustable straps allow me to fit it to my desired fit. I ordered another pair in taupe and am waiting for a brown pair to come available. They are so worth the price -- and they look fashionable too!

I have foot issues and this shoe is so comfortable. I am so pleased with my selection. (I didn't think I could wear wedged shoes, I usually wear flats). You can tighten or loosen the straps depending on how much width you need.

These get five stars! I bought these shoes for a trip to India. For the entire two weeks that I was there I wore nothing else. They are hands down the most comfortable sandals that I have ever had. The footbed is so soft and cooling and I love the adjustable straps. I was not sure that I would like the style (since I love wearing very stylish shoes) but these look so nice on, better than in the pictures. There seem to be good shock absorbers and at the end of the day my feet feel better having worn them. Obviously, you can tell that I love these shoes and I highly recommend you buy them if you are looking for sandals that you can walk in that also look stylish. It is truly hard to find that combination. I will try out this brand again for sure.

Beautiful, Amazing, comfortable! Soft, subtle leather that feels like a dream the instant I put them on! The heel adds some elegance, but no pressure on the ball of foot or splayed toes. I have a slight bunion, wide toes, and a relatively skinny heel, so wide shoes are too sloppy on my heel. These are PERFECT and can be worn casual to business casual. I wear 9.5 to 10 and ordered a 40.

Wonderful sandals. I bought them because two of my friends were raving about them. They run a bit big. I usually take a size 41 for a consistent 9.5 but needed a 40 in these. They are extremely comfortable for walking and look nice too. I have flat feet and bunions and am very careful about what shoes I wear for proper support. These were fine. This color goes with everything.

I tried these in burnt orange and red. I loved both colors, but more importantly the look and feel of these very comfortable shoes. I sometimes have to stand for several hours a day when facilitating workshops, and these are both fashionable and forgiving. Last evening, I wore them to dinner and showed them off to my sister in law--who promptly said that she had bought the same shoe and loves it as much as i do. I especially like that they are made in Portugal. Trying to avoid Chinese made products..

These shoes are fantastic. Can wear them all day, the adjustable straps can make the fit perfect. Not too high, right height. Lots of compliments on these. I chose the grey wear with just about anything.

Absolutely awesome shoe! Comfortable and cute. Ankle strap is quite wide so it may not be a style for everyone. I am going to run and look at other styles from the Taos brand.

This shoe, in hand, is much darker and less shimmery than as pictured. It's pretty dull, actually. Be advised it looks different when you get it. Other than that, it's a very comfortable and durable shoe.

Excellent shoe! As others have noted, these shoes are pricey but they are well worth it. I had been looking for another stylish, comfortable wedge since Jambu broke my heart with the restyling of their Touring shoe. This one is a winner! I have thick legs and I was worried that an ankle strap might not be so flattering, but it's just low enough that it makes me legs look nice and long.
