These are beautiful! Love them except I think they will fit best on people with feet on the wider side. I am 9M and they fit, but I can see that after the leather stretches out a bit, they will be too loose on my feet.

They just looked and felt cheap. They are comfortable, though

These sandals looked great when I took them out of the box. I loved the color and simple strap style. The only problem once I put them on in the house and walked around was the strap that goes only around the heal of the foot. This strap is very loose and would gap out to the sides when I walked. It's too bad I really liked the shoe other than that.

I wanted to love these!! They are so cute in person. I’m a true 8 1/2 but when I received the 8 1/2 it was almost a whole size too big. So I exchanged for the 8 and it was too small, toe wise and width. I’m so sad I wanted to keep them. They are adorable but the sizing is very off. :(

I love the style. I had Kork-Ease platform sandals as a teenager and never forgot them. These are slightly more dressy so I can wear them for work and play. Comfy right out of the box. As a 9.5, they are just the right size but I can see how someone leaning on the larger end of the half size might want to go up to the next full size.

Really wanted these boots to fit. They are beautiful boots very well made with soft leather and should be comfortable.. When I tried them on and walked around the house they slipped up and down on my heel. I tried wearing thick socks but the boots still slipped up and down.Sadly I am returning them.

If you are looking for a wedge, these are not it. I feel almost like I’m wearing a flat in these shoes. The front of the foot (at the first 3 toes) tips up slightly and I don’t like sandals that have that look. I would not recommend.

The shoe is cute, and I wanted to like it, but there's something off with the arch support. It hit my foot in an odd location, making these shoes uncomfortable.

Love the look of these and the dark gray color. The arch support did not hit where it needed to on my foot. It was too far back. Sadly, I had to return them. Might work better if you had lower arches or more volume to your foot. Too bad, they are gorgeous.

I am a solid 7 in most shoes and these were true to size. These are super comfortable and light. The platform gives a boost in height without the pain of a heeled sandal. I have a narrow heel and a high arch and these fit like they were made just for me. The blue is my second pair and they will compliment my navy clothes.

I wear size 6 in sandals and have the Kork-Ease Velma boot in 6.5 to wear with socks, and it is close-fitting. The Kama boot in 6.5 felt more spacious and comfortable for my toes. However, the pair I received had a couple of scuffs near the toe on one shoe, and the insoles made a weird squeaking noise when I’d walk. I ended up returning them.

I love how these shoes look and the heel is super cute too however, the straps are way too high! My feet are fairly normal, perhaps my heel is a little narrow but the straps that come over your feet were not touching mine! Obviously I have to send them back. Also, I am normally an 8 1/2 or a 39 and I ordered a 9 but maybe I should try the 8? I could have used them slightly shorter in the last but I was worried the 8 would be too small.

These shoes could be fabulous. They're stylish and quite comfortable. Perhaps it works for some, but one needs quite a thick foot to wear them. I wear an 8.5B so I ordered an 8 and a 9. The 8 fit best all around except for the fact that the leather upper has far too much space above the foot. I had to work to keep them on my feet as I walked around. I even tried two layers of moleskin to see if that would help, but they still had a fair amount of space between the instep and leather upper. The 9, of course, had even more volume and was just a bit too long. The blue is a lovely shade. I so wish they worked for me. Disappointing!

Of course, great shoes and well-made but if you have a wide foot- the top straight across strap is not as comfortable as the Ava model as it can pinch the little toe.

I really liked the look of shoe but there was a place on the arch that was just too uncomfortable for me. I originally ordered a 7, I normally wear a 7.5, and it was a bit small. The 8 was much better in length but still issue with arch. They are so cute on, bummed it didn't work for me.

Just to be clear: I hate the look of cowboy/girl boots and hate the pain of unnaturally shaped pointy toes. However, I LOVE THESE BOOTS! So much so I'm about to purchase pairs 3 and 4. Insanely comfortable right out of the box, even for wider fore foot and toes used to Birkenstocks. Seriously cute to boot (wink wink) and they go with everything.

Really wanted these to work out because I love the styling and the comfort of the cork platform heel. However, as other reviews have noted, the shoes are very squeaky and the arch creates suction with your foot that makes it sound like you have foot flatulence. I found the arch to hit too far back on my foot. I have fairly flat feet.

What a beautiful shoe--I wish it fit my foot. A bit too short for my toes and yet a bit too much looseness to warrent the next size up. Slides are hard to wear if too loose because you have to curl your toes to keep them on.

Just exchanged for one size smaller and now they fit perfectly! My foot tends to be on the wide side and these make my feet look narrower. A minimalist yet elegant design which will be timeless. Feel great right out of the box. Love!

Kork-Ease makes a beautiful shoe! Worth the price. Love these slides. They feel amazing right out of the box. I did need to exchange for one size smaller which then fit perfectly. Will enjoy waring these with dresses, joggers or even shorts.

Loved these sandals, unfortunately the footbed was slightly narrower that my foot. My feet tend to be a little on the wide side but not enough to wear a wide. Otherwise they were very comfortable and cute.

I really liked the shoes, in looks and comfort, and Zappos was timely in getting them to me......but the variation in the leather was too much for me to keep them. Kork-Ease should do better at 149 dollars.
