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.

These are the most comfortable shoes ever and are stylish enough to dress up or down. I have these shoes in 3 colors because the Velcro in the toe area assures a perfect fit, especially for those who have problem big toe joints or different size feet. Love these shoes.

Heads up ladies about size. Two years ago I had purchased this style in teal color, size 37 in a store and was able to try on any size. I absolutely loved them. So I ordered from Zappos, as Taos is not available where I live and wanted the grey. Never realizing 37 is actually a 6-6½ which is also on the box. I am 7-7½ really more a 7½ depending on style. I just wanted to pass this information on as 7-7½ is a popular size. I had to check "Felt true to size" because they fit fine! The Velcro tabs are great and so is the quality and comfort is amazing. I always get compliments on the teal and they need to bring back that color!

I love these sandals! I would say they run about a half size too large. I wear a size 8.5/39 in most shoes and ordered the size 39 in these, they were about a half size too big so ordered the 38 and they fit perfect. I haven't actually really worn them yet other than around the house since I ordered them in fall/winter - I just wanted to have them here and ready to go for next spring/summer! The only thing is I have a high arch and I do notice a gap in my arch area when testing them around the house but I feel that my feet & arch will mold in nicely with the high quality footbed with more actual wear. I got them in the Graphite color to go with everything, the color is gorgeous in person, not too "shiny" and can be dressed up or down. Yes, this is the most I have EVER spent on sandals but now I have one pair of very nice sandals that I LOVE instead of spending the same amount of money on several pair that are just o.k. - Highly recommended!

Pretty shoe, a bit high for me. I have a narrow foot and this one works because of the velcro tabs. I am having foot problems and cannot wear this at this time so am returning it. I think it is a bit expensive for the materials although under normal foot conditions, it would be comfortable. I am returning it because I won't get any wear from it this season and not sure if my foot problem will be solved.

Not so much orange, definitely more of a tan. Color does not look like the photo at all. Also run big. I normally take a 39, ordered a 38, and still too big.

These are even cuter in person. I am thrilled. I'm taking a trip to NYC where I walk a lot and these may or may not be comfy enough o walk all day. But I will keep them for wearing around town here in LA because they are so cute and reasonably comfy. I have wide feet and these are good, really good.

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!

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.
