Look good but if you plan on wearing them for long periods of time, buy some insoles. Purely built for style not comfort. Feels like walking on cardboard sewn to leather/pleather.

I've had these sandals now for about 2 months and I've NEVER worn them outside (only inside the office). I must say these sandals are adorable. I love the look (quite different) and they are very comfortable. I thought the straps would be a problem, but they aren't. However, just recently I've noticed that the material on the front of BOTH sandals is slightly torn. I'm disappointed because I don't consider myself to be hard on shoes, I don't wear them often (maybe once or twice a week) and since I've only worn them inside the office, I don't even know how this could have happened. I don't even know if they can be repaired. Lucky for me, the tears are small and unnoticable, and I'll be able to wear them throughout the remainder of the summer season. For the price, I can't complain too much. It's a very nice "seasonal/summer" sandal -- just beware that the material is not durable. For this reason only, I've given this shoe an overall rating of 4.

The shoes were way bigger than the size indicated, but Zappos were very good about sending me a smaller size immediately. They even sent the replacements overnight. I love the shoes by the way.

I bought these black pebbled leather boots in size 9M and they are true to size, maybe even run slightly large although with boots that just gives you generous toe room. I wear boots a lot and love this pair. Right away they were comfortable, easy to put on and take off, and I like a secure sole with good tread. They have just the right amount of buckles, zippers, etc., for subtle flash. I also like the shapely styling...they indent slightly at the ankle and then flare out very slightly above that...very flattering and perfectly proportioned. After wearing these for a few weeks, I bought them in brown, too. Very happy with both purchases. Tried on other boots before finding these and I appreciate Zappos' easy, free return policy.

I am a runner and have muscular calves. These were to loose on me and I had too much slack. You need to have bigger calves for these. Material was cheap and they looked like they wouldn't stand the test of time.

I loved these but they scuffed at the toe within 5 minutes of wearing them. I feel so disappointed about this and wish the inner sole was made of better material. I bought another brand of gladiators at the same time and have had no problems with those. Will be returning.

I always wear a true 6 and I couldn't even get my foot in the 6 of this shoe, I ordered the 7 and they fit perfectly. I suggest ordering a full size up on these beauties.

This is a really cute and comfortable shoe. It fits well other than the my heel slips when I walk. Too bad, I would have kept them.

These are really sharp looking boots, fit well with dress pants or a suit. When I buy regular cowboy style boots I usually have to wear thick socks to take up the extra room because I have a semi narrow foot. Not so with these, they fit like a glove. I give them 5 stars except that there's not much comfort in the footbed. I added some gel inserts, which took care of it. Still, I rate them as worth every penny. The sole also has good grip on slippery surfaces.

Not very comfortable (stiff and heavy)...I got these to replace my Type Z Harvey's (which I loved). I would pay almost any amount to get more Harvey's; they were my favorite boot of all time. The Taylor's, however, not so much, they feel a lot heavier (even though they're actually only 2oz heavier), the sole is very stiff and feels a lot more 'clunky'. the Taylor is just not a comfortable every day boot. That being said they do seem reasonably sturdy. I've been wearing them mostly every day for a few months now, and they are showing no sings of wearing out.

I was surprised at how comfortable these are! Style-wise, I wish they had a few fewer buckles -- and with the buckles tightened all the way for my narrow feet, the ends of the straps are starting to curl up, which doesn't look as nice. But overall, very pleased! If you are between sizes, I would order the smaller. I had to return the 8.5 for 8.

I love these sandals. I have thin legs and these are great because they stay up on my legs because they are a supportive leather. I laughed when I read about no arch support because they are a flat sandal, no arch support is expected.

Super cute! Love the style and adjustments. I had a hard time finding real leather flat-soled sandals, and was happy fo get these. Be aware, though, these run a half size large.

I was looking for a boot to paint silver, that would hold up walking and standing a lot on hard ground, (desert conditions). These both fit my wider calves, and painted well - and with the addition of insoles (I sized up 1/2 size to do this), they were plenty comfortable as well. I agree that the dual zippers at the back and insole were really handy. Two notes - they do pick up clods of dirt easily, so you may want to keep them on a doormat until you can knock the dirt out of the tread; and the width of the sole didn't feel wider than an average width.

I was so excited to find these, and they are a little disappointing. They run very large, which makes them awkward to walk in. The buckles make a TON of noise when you walk and they do not seem to be as high quality as they appear online. I will admit they are adorable with some skinny jeans or some shorts, but I wish I had not spent so much money on them. They would be worth less. Order a size down! They are very loose. In retrospect I should have exchanged them for a size smaller, but I have worn them too much to do so. :(

They look nice, feel well made, I get compliments on them all the time. That said...way too large. I'm an 8.5 (my foot is about 9.5 inches long). At first I ordered the 9, because a little too big is better than a little too small. But that was just way too big. Needing the shoes in a week, I ordered the 8 thinking that surely it's only half a size too large and that a 7 would surely be too small. Wrong. The 8's were still too big, but I needed them that day so I bought some insoles which made it fit well enough to walk in (but still roomy). Also, they smell...the leather/glue smell is very strong, I'm sure it'll fade but be warned that it's noticeable from about 4 feet away from the shoes. So if you really like the style, I won't discourage you from these shoes. But please order a few at the same time if there is a time constraint, and aim for 1 to 1.5 sizes smaller than you usually wear.

I agree with the other reviewer - I have average calves but small feet - size 5. They did not properly taper to shoe so that the bottom is too lose and the top is too tight. My calves are average size - I wear XS bottoms FYI.

I love these boots so much that I have bought them in two colors...black and the brown leather. They are very comfortable, are wide enough for my larger calf, and zippers to assist in getting them on easily, and have the perfect heel height. They are beautiful and stylish as well! I highly recommend them!

Love them so far! Great support for me because I have a rather flat foot, and plenty of space to wear all day and not hurt my feet. Plus, I've been getting compliments on the color scheme!
