Gorgeous sandal. Always get compliments. Definitely get quality for the extra dough you spend. No chipping/peeling/fading in the gold colors like other sandals I've had. No break in period-the leather straps are super lux. If you're looking for padding or support, this may not be the sandal for you, but they can fancy up just about any summer outfit. Wore these nearly every day this summer.

Love this sandal. Definitely size either 1 or 1.5 sizes up. Not a ton of support (as pictured) - but really beautifully made. I like how you can dress this up or wear it casual - very versatile!

Love this sandal! Definitely does run on the smaller size. I fluctuate between a 10 & 11, and the 11 just fit. The two straps that run across the top of the foot make for a snug fit, which I like, as some sandals (like the t-strap ones) can be pretty loose/floppy at times. These are a summer staple!

I bought these 3 different times trying to find my size, normally an 8.5/9 I needed a 10 in the length but when the 10 arrived they were too wide. Great looking shoe, just order up for sizing

I had my last joie sandals for 5 years and loved them, these were the perfect replacement. They do run small, so I sized up a 1/2 size. The leather stretches so I know with a little time they will turn a beautiful honey brown and feel like skin.

I loved the look of these shoes, unfortunately the straps were very narrow and I had a hard time even getting my feet in. I already have fairly narrow feet, but perhaps the height of my feet was to blame? I am sad to send them back.

Very cute but odd fit on these. I am a 5.5-6 in shoes, usually 5.5 in sandals. I ordered these in natural in a 5.5 and a pair in a size 6 in another color from another retailer. The 5.5 and 6 had a very small difference in length. Really the difference is very slight, I could wear either size. The main difference is that the strap on the 5.5 was not long enough to make it completely around my foot. I was surprised. It looped all the way around but the strap just wasn't quite long enough to buckle.

These sandals go with absolutely everything and they're perfect for summer. I'm normally a 6.5 -7 and I ordered the 7 and they fit perfectly. My only complaint is that the leather straps stretch out A LOT. I'm already on the last hole to buckle them and they're really loose. Other than that, they're really comfortable and took no time to break in!

Very torn as I love the style of these shoes, however the quality for the price is sub par. Be sure to size up - I wear an 8.5 or a 9 and had to buy a 10. PROS: The natural color is perfection - it elongates the leg and goes with everything...shorts, casual dresses, denim. Love. CONS: Quality is subpar. The left sandal has annoyingly squeaked since I got the shoes (end of May) and now (early August) the entire sole has split at the front of the right shoe. What's worse, it happened during a work function and I had to "tape" the shoe with a band aid so I didn't face plant in front of my coworkers. For the price, that's pretty pathetic.

They're lucky they're cute. Seriously, they're so terribly uncomfortable. The bottoms are thin and hard and hurt when step on them. The straps stretched out after one day of wear and I had to tighten them up by one hole already. Next day they stretched out some more. For the price, I'm surprised at the quality. But the fit is perfect on me and they look adorable. I'm keeping them because I need a neutral sandal and these are the only ones I like the look and fit. But will need to keep looking for a more comfy pair.

These do run small and kind of narrow. You definitely need to go up a 1/2 size if not a full size. I will say that I've tried on similar styles from other brands and these feel somewhat on the cheap side (at least for the price). You can find this style for half price in other brands. Also, the leather is noisy and they are not he most comfy. Sending back....

The straps on both sandals were damaged (looked like they had been worn - there were rust marks from the buckle). On one sandal the strap didn't reach all the way around to the buckle at all. I love the shoe, but I got a defective pair.
