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!

First, the positives: Beautiful sandals, comfortable, perfect tan color, very stylish. Lickety split shipping from Zappos. So why am I returning them? No matter how lovely they are, I simply can't justify the price tag. The leather straps are indeed soft but I don't think they'll wear well in the long run. And so the quest continues for the perfect pair of summer beauty sandals at a different price point.

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.

The fit was great, and size was as expected, but for the price, I wasn't willing to keep them. The shoe felt pretty flimsy, and the sole too thin for me to think it would be comfortable all day.

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!

I love these shoes. High quality, beautiful material. The bottom is very smooth but scuffed up quickly w a few walks on the sidewalk.

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.

Absolutely gorgeous materials. I wanted to love these but they just did not fit me great. I ordered two sizes and one was just a bit big and the other just a bit small. Great workmanship though.

These boots are beautiful. The wood heel is the perfect finish and height. I love the style but was bummed the sides didn't cover even a low cut sock. I'll be sending them back. But for that, they were exactly what I was looking for.

The materials used to make this boot are superior and wonderful in every way except for one. I tried using socks and no socks with the same result. The insole is padded and feels wonderful on your feet except with that super soft padding every step you take elicits a sound. It sounds like you are passing gas, it would be loud enough to turn heads and make people laugh. A few other reviews mentioned that the shoes made noise. Unfortunately this is true. To say that I am disappointed is an understatement because I love everything about the shoe. It will be going back.

Very soft leather and I loved the look and feel of this bootie but it was just to big in my normal size 38.

Excellent quality. I'm very consistently a size 9 and needed to buy a full size larger (40 instead of 39) but then they were amazingly comfortable. Ultimately, I already have a black pump and I wanted the grey/stone which were sold out in the larger size so I returned them.

These are great! I bought a size 38 and 39. I'm a size 8, but have very wide feet. The length of the 38 was fine, but found the 39s to be more comfortable for the width. I love them so much, and am already thinking about buying another Fortress of Inca shoe!

Perfect everyday pump. The heel is pretty and the toe shape is cute. Incredibly well made. If you're between sizes, go up!

Materials in construction of sole are weighty and too soft to provide needed arch support. The sole of this nice looking shoe lacks the strong, crisp connection to the upper critical to the balance and support needed for good support and walking comfort in this style of shoe. Otherwise, thanks to Zappo's for great customer service.

I bought these kind of impulsively, and - hooray! - they were both more comfortable and more versatile than I'd expected. Good support in the footbed and, once laced appropriately, fit nicely and comfortably on my foot with and without socks.

I liked the appearance of these boots quite a lot, and was hopeful about the fit after trying the oxfords from this brand. However, there were a few problems: first, they are hard to get into, and you have to unlace about half the boot just to get your foot inside. A zipper would have been helpful. Additionally, when testing them out, I did not find them very comfortable in the ankle area, nor were they as supportive as the oxfords.

I really wanted to like these booties. The leather is so beautiful and soft, and the cutout design on the side is cute and trendy for fall. My feet are slightly wide and my toes were not pinched in these booties. However, the back and sides of the shoe is somehow looser than the rest, and the shoe started to make an audible squishing sound with every step I took because of the air that would get into the shoe each time I lifted my feet. Sadly had to return these.

The 2 stars are only because these shoes are definitely for medium width feet. I have wide feet. Ugh... I purchased the dark blue & they are really very nice shoes- great quality, they look sensational with jeans... But like I said, they are too narrow for my wide feet, so back they go. Such a bummer... back to the search for something stylish that won't hurt my feet. By the way Zappos, thank you for your terrific customer service!

Oh, these are lovely shoes, unfortunately, I have wide feet and these are definitely for women with a medium width foot. I would advise to size down, at least a 1/2 size, if not a full size. There was an inch to 1.5 inch gap between the back of my ankle and shoe. Those of you with medium width feet, enjoy!

Such a lovely boot! I am returning because the fit isn't quite right--the toe is a little too narrow for me, and my heel slides forward to compress my foot into the toe box. I also live in a a more rainy area, so the leather sole probably wouldn't do so well. I am sad to be returning such a beautiful, well-made shoe!

Fabulous shoes! I branched out from my usual brands (Frye, Born) to try these. I’m pleasantly surprised!!! It’s the perfect camel color for Fall. Super light, comfortable and adorable. I’ll definitely put this brand on my watch list!!!
