Nice shoe - exactly as pictured. Comfortable footbed. Unfortunately the toe cap is narrow and the edge hit the base of my pinky toe in a way that was an immediate deal-breaker. I’m average width. If you have a narrow forefoot, this might be a great shoe for you. I was hoping to find a W to try, but no luck.

The fit is perfect....this is a gorgeous gorgeous shoe! Clogs are happening, and these are cooler than a classic clog. I love the sleek toe...the fit is great...There is virtually no pitch, so I can walk in these all day. I wish I could buy more in some fun colors! Hint hint...

They are advertised as US size 11, but they are definitely running small. I think the shoes are closer to a 10 or even 9.5, since the fit is narrow. The shoes are beautifully made and I wish they had fit. I would recommend to size up.

I loved these so much that I bought 4 pairs, three for myself, and a pair for my daughter (two were purchased directly from the vendor). When you first try them on they feel incredible. The leather is buttery soft. But if you need sandals to stay on your feet, don't buy these. My daughter wore them to dinner and afterward we needed to walk four blocks to our hotel, as there were no cabs available in DC. It was the most awful thing we ever experienced. The sandals would not stay on her feet, as the inner soles were incredibly slippery, as well as the leather straps on top of her foot. I actually had to let her wear my Brighton sandals to make it to the hotel while I attempted to make it in hers. I had the same horrific experience and ended up having to walk barefoot on the cold sidewalk and across the streets. Needless to say I will be returning these.

This funky twist on a saddle Oxford fits like a glove, is instantly comfy to walk in and works with shirts, pants and skirts. The ideal summer shoe with no pedicure required!

I love these shoes... the way they look and the fit was great! The only reason I didn't buy these was that when you walk in them they are Soooooo loud that I didnt want to have a pr of shoes at their price point that I had to worry about. I'm actually surprised that they are so loud. If the company ever fixed this I would definitely buy these.

A shoe can be beautiful, but if it hurts it does not work.

Very cute shoes, but narrow toe box, not a lot of support and the style made it somewhat difficult to walk while trying to keep the shoe on. I think I would have repeatedly walked right out of them or had them slip off. Sadly had to return.

This is an exquisitely made shoe. The leather sole, lining and upper are perfectly done and it is worth the price tag. Unfortunately for me, the boot did not fit my foot as I needed it to do.

The top of the sandal is very narrow, unfortunately, and the leather doesn't feel as soft and plush as Fortress's typical quality. The quality and workmanship of the sole is beautiful and well-made.

Cute, sturdy, yes, but runs about two sizes too small, if not more. I've ordered a pair in my typical size (39) AND a size up (40) and the size up is STILL a size too small, at least. Very odd. Honestly, won't be trying a third time, too much hassle, too weird. BUT if you're willing to try, I'd order about two European sizes up from your typical size. Best of luck!

Funny how many reviews for this bootie coo about how soft the leather is when actually, it is not. Funny too, how many reviews say it runs large, when it does not. It's a solid bootie with a nice style to it. But for almost 300 bucks, I expect the leather to be butter soft not moderate soft. Overall, its a nice but not great bootie.

These are beautiful shoes and very comfortable if you choose the right size. I usually wear a 10 or at most a 10.5, but didn't want to take the chance on these so ordered 11. They're still slightly tight, so definitely size up at least a half size. I'm not worried about the tightness, since the leather is beautiful and will clearly stretch and mold to your feet after a few wears. Very comfortable - ended up sprinting to the subway the first time I wore them, and no blisters!

Very hard, very flat, very expensive but beautiful blue and so darned cute! I REALLY wanted to keep them! They wouldn’t stay on my feet and were far too expensive to keep shoes I couldn’t wear! Definitely not a walking shoe!

Perfect fit!! Love this shoe. I work at an adjustable desk and stand most of the time. I have an extra pair of shoes under my desk that I typically need to put on because the shoes I’m wearing hurt after a couple of hours. With the shoes the foot bed is so good I never had to put on my extra shoes.
