I love these closed-toe sandals. I have one pair in tan and one pair in black. I wore the tan pair so much it started to look a little shabby, so I just reordered a new pair. Now I have one pair that I can wear to grub around and the new pair I will use for nicer occasions. The shoes are super comfortable and can go with capris or dresses. They are definitely my go to closed-toe sandal.

Totally love these shoes. I purchased them in black and navy. The style is perfect for the summer. They are not as open as a sandal but still perfect for warmer weather yet so comfortable.

These sandals are high-quality & gorgeous. Plus, totally on-trend. Needed to send back because my foot slid around a bit, especially at the ankle. My feet tend to be on the narrow side which didn't work for these shoes.

These are beautiful shoes for a dressy event. The delivery was prompt, the shoes fit exceptionally well (I've had surgery for bunions) and will be comfortable for my niece's wedding. Zappos never lets me down!!

These shoes had such a chemical smell! Perhaps it was the glue holding on the rhinestones, or the synthetic lining. ?? I have never had this trouble with a pair of shoes before. They were a very pretty style, and maybe the smell would dissipate, but then again, maybe not.

Generally, I liked these and wanted to keep them. While there isn't really any arch support, and the foot-bed isn't padded, it felt pretty comfortable for a sandal. I liked the style, and low heel, the fit was perfect, and I thought the materials were nice for the cost. It was nearly a successful purchase except for one small issue - there was some knotted thread at the end of a seam on the inner part of the strap. While it didn't feel like much under my thumb, it felt like a tiny thorn rubbing at the delicate skin on my instep. Really wanted to keep them but I would need to wear a band-aid on my foot to protect against the rub. Sending them back. It's a shame. The issue I had probably wouldn't occur with most of these sandals, so I may just exchange them for another pair.

I like the shoe - it fits a little tighter than my usual size 7 but I decided to keep it and try to stretch it a bit - If I had to do over I would probably order a 7.5 but I don't want to get it and have to return being too big - so will work with this one... very well made shoe with good support for a clog.

The booties are so cute but dressy too. They are comfortable right out of the box. I have a wide foot, so the I'm happy to find something fashionable and cute. The craftsmanship is impeccable !! I'm happy with this purchase.

This is a very well crafted shoe and I've purchased from this brand before. I have a wide foot so I ordered a wide and they fit great . It's a beautiful style too! My only complaint is they stretch out some, not as snug as they should be.

I love this sandal and wore to work right off without any discomfort. Is perfect style to hide a bunion but still feel like you are wearing summer sandals like everyone. The elastic triangle on top of the foot no doubt helps improve the fit, but doesnt help with the "cute" factor. At my age I've learned to try to be comfortable first, then worry about how cute the shoe is. I bought the black and the elastic is less noticeable I think than what you'd have with the tan version. I am watching for another dark color to be offered in this shoe. Also will try other David Tate's now that I've tried this sandal -- was a new brand to me.

I have problem, awful , painful feet, and these are great shoes. They're comfortable and look better than tennis shoes by far. The shoes are flat and I can't wear anything above an inch. They're casual, but also can look dressier and feminine. I bought a pair in the carmel color last year and was sorry I didn't get the black too. Now I have black. I wish they even came in white.

These sandals were cute, but they had no arch support and no cushion! Standing in them felt like standing on a hard floor. I like style and comfort!

Love these shoes. I first purchased them in the off-white color to wear to a fundraising event for the nonprofit I lead. I needed a stylish shoe that was comfortable because I was going to be on my feet for 6 hours. At the end of the evening, I thought WOW; I didn't feel even a twinge in my 10N feet. So I purchased them in black. I am a true 10N/AA and these felt true to size. Thank you David Tate.

I exchanged the snakeskin in an 8.5 for the black sandals in 8 and they are much better. The ankle strap falls in the right place and the material seems softer over my toes. My feet do not slide forward in the smaller size. I like the look of the snakeskin a tad better but these are more comfortable.

In comparing the size 10 and 9.5, this was markedly narrower. Too bad -- because the 10 is a bit long for my foot. Otherwise these are quite comfortable and cute.

I LOVED the way these shoes looked! I really really wanted them to work (for my son's wedding). But the edge of the peep -toe immediately rubbed against my toe, just trying them out, walking around on my carpet, and I knew I would be miserable if I wore them to the wedding. Regretfully returning them.

this is a beautiful shoe that I bought to wear to our son's wedding. Unfortunately, when I stand in the show, the top portion of the shoe was rubbing into my toes. I wear an extra wide and perhaps this is a better shoes for a narrower foot.

I bought these for for sons wedding. Beautiful shoes...but they were very uncomfortable. Left a blister on my toe at the top. Wore them for about 4 hours and had to take them off. I even purchased gel pads to help with the comfort but that didnt even help. Spent alot of money for them and can't wear them again. Wish I could return them!

I really love how this shoe looks out of the box. It's a gorgeous teal color, and the design is both unique and graceful. Unfortunately, it is not designed to fit an actual foot. I bought a 10WW, my usual size in everything but Clark's where I get a 10W, and while it was wide enough (barely) across the ball of my foot, it continued to widen toward the heel, leaving a noticeable, unattractive gap next to my foot. And the heel strap left a good half inch of extra length. So I exchanged it for a 9 1/2 WW, but the toe box was now too narrow and it still gapped on the side. I think if I had a SUPER high arch, this might have fixed the gap, but I only have a somewhat high arch. I thought I might be able to live with the gap, but after wearing the shoe for 15 minutes or so, it was just too uncomfortable. No arch support, and the slight wedge made my toes slide to the front of the shoe and get squashed. Sad to send the shoe back, but I just couldn't make it work.

These were about a half size too big. I am returning an 8.5 for an 8 in hopes that the strap falls in the right place with the correct size. Because my foot slid forward in the 8.5, I had to tighten the strap to the point where it dug in to my ankle. Hoping the 8 fits well as these are really flattering and supportive.
