LOVED THE LOOK BUT BAD QUALITY.... was so delighted to find these and wore them for 2 months this summer but at that point the soles fell apart! They started to come loose at the lines in the soles and of course cannot be worn like that. Very disappointed in the quality. ST wants me to mail back to them at my expense.

Very cute shoe. Felt like wearing a slipper. Unfortunately, I had to send them back. After 2 weeks of on & off wear the stitching that holds the bottom of the shoe to the material started to unravel thus, shoe falling apart.

These shoes are poor quality. The jute which runs along the side of sole makes up the sole and soaks up moisture, wicking to entire shoe. I've had these shoes one week and the stitching around sole is already breaking. Definitely not worth the price.

Great summer shoe! Goes with everything. Probably too loose for a narrow foot.

These shoes are super cute! I was concerned about the quality after reading a few reviews but since I will not be wearing these often thought I would take a chance! I am in between an 8.5 and 9. I would go up a size next time!

These Sperry's are so cute & comfortable. They have a slight metallic thread in the fabric which I liked.

Great shoe! Super cute! 2 things to be aware of. Wear with caution in the rain. I didn't step in huge puddles but the water soaked through the sole and they were damp for 3 days after. Also...usually I'm a size 9.5 in running shoes and a 9 in sandals/no sock shoes. Had to go with the 9.5 though. Great purchase overall!

These are very comfortable. Like wearing slippers. Do not wear them in the rain - the rope sole absorbs the water.

What a refreshing shoe from Sperry! The shoe fits true to size. I'm usually an 8-8 1/2. Espadrilles can usually run a little sloppy, so I ordered an 8. Oops. Sperry runs true. Of course, Zappos, the God of the Universe in turn around time, I reordered and returned the size 8 and had it by the end of the week (that includes first order, delivery, return, and reorder delivered). Now for the shoe, it's the coolest washed out red and the graphics remind me of Nantucket. The color is neutral enough to go with everything. It's a nice flat walking shoe, but keep in mind, it's an espadrille. You won't be feeling that $150 running shoe comfort, but it's a great flat and adorable style. I like the vamp isn't too high on my arch giving it a nice feminine look. Buy these, they are cute!

So cute! True to size. Metallic is on trend. They are very comfortable and didn't chafe my feet at all-even on the first wearing. They match everything and were as cute or cuter in person than online!

I love these shoes!They are comfortable and sharp looking, not your average Sperry boat shoe. I tried a pair of 7 's in the store that were way too small. I then tried an 8 and it was way too large. My regular size is 7 so I ordered it from Zappos, and it is perfect. Zappos is the most customer friendly .com I know.

LOVE these shoes! They are so comfortable and stylish. I personally went up a size compared to my other Sperry's, but they did stretch a little, so I could have probably done the traditional size as well.

I bought these for my daughter. She wanted a pair of shoes which would look good with summer pants and skirts. She absolutely hates to dress up and these were a good dressier compromise and certainly better than her usual sneakers. She loves these shoes. The color is great, the fit is great. She has wide feet. And, yes, they do look cute with skirts and pants. Plus, the price was reasonable.

The shoe is so comfortable, and when it poured down rain one day, my shoes were totally soaked through. I thought the shoes would be ruined because I could feel the shoe shape change, but after air drying them, the shoes are even more comfortable! They are molded perfectly now to my foot. Bonus! I love these, but the only reason I am giving the style 4 stars is because the string is shiny silver. I wasn't expecting that. I thought they would just be gray.

I love the comfort of an espadrille, and the cute colors and prints available in this style convinced me to order several pairs. The rope soles provide a nice amount of cushioning, but I added insoles for my sensitive feet. It is best not to let these get too wet because the fabric sole will deteriorate, but that sole is what makes the shoe so easy to wear. I love them.

These espadrilles are so fun for summer. True to size, though I did have to tighten the laces a bit (for narrow heels). I wish Sperry made more color choices, I would indulge!

Shoes are super cute and pretty comfy. The rubber on the soles doesn't stay in place super well (sometimes skids/slides) and the heel is a little stiff and definitely requires some breaking-in. Uncertain as to how sturdy or long-lasting the sole will be overall as I walk A LOT.
