Really wanted to like this sandal but will return. I wear an 8 1/2 normally and these shoes do run true to size. This pair actually fits me but they are a bit short in the back - one reason they fit is that the back ankle strap feels a bit loose and stretchy. I could see it stretching out over time. Otherwise cute, but I also prefer the cork sole that was unavailable when I ordered.

I’ve been wanting a pair of Kork-Ease for quite a while, but these shoes just didn’t meet my expectations. They were fairly comfortable as I wore them around the house, but not as amazing as I had hoped. They would probably be fine after I broke them in, but I chose another brand that was really cute & super comfy right out of the box. Also, I wasn’t crazy about the brown color. Hopefully I’ll have better luck next time with this brand.

These shoes are really well made but they were a tad too small for me. I usually wear an 8.5 but had tried a 9 in korkease before and found it it’ll big. Unfortunately the 8 was too small. Wish they’d make half sizes.

These shoes are really cute and I wish they fit. I normally wear a size 10 and my typical problem finding sandals is that they are too narrow. In this case, the width was good but my toes hung over the edge of the shoe.

I first bought these in the cream color and liked them enough to buy them in black too. Very comfortable, I feel like I can walk all day in these sandals. Excellent arch support. Stable. And they are cute too. I am not experiencing any issues with squeaking or stiff leather. A great basic for the summer!

I think this will shoe WORK WELL for me! I LOVE the way they look. The toes are wide enough for me & shoe is adjustable. I know that a heel strap would be better to have, but......these stay on well. I learned about Kork-Ease THANKS TO another Zappos Customer, who listed this brand as a brand she wears. I was on an "idealistic" search (rather IMPOSSIBLE Search) for shoes to fit: my Wide toes; Narrow heel; and have DECENT arch Support WITH a "firmer" sole. PLUS: I wanted to try for a CORK footbed and RUBBER sole (and possibly avoid an EVA injected foam sole). Yes......quite an quite impossible task. After learning more about Kork-Ease from their web site (AND RETURNING to Zappos to ORDER): I recognized their Classic Wedge from the 70's. This Torreya wedge seems really good (so far). I am still "trying" them out at home on wood floors & kitchen floor. The leather is a tad stiff at first - especially on edges of leather Straps. (but I have "bony" feet). I am waiting for another Zappos order to arrive & see IF "Think" brand of shoes might be a little better for me. IF.....this Kork-Ease is a "keeper", I know that I can soften the leather edges. I recently tried on Birkenstocks in an actual store: The sole on Kork-Ease is NOT as firm as Birkenstock (& probably not as firm as Naot). However, I am, someone who loves my Chaco sandals (just can't wear them right now due to a foot problem). TRY THEM OUT !!!!

I loved these shoes when I saw them. I’ve never tried the Korkease brand before. I ordered my regular size (7) and they were huge! I’d have guessed they were size 8 1/2. That’s how big they were. So I exchanged them for a size 6, because I like them so much. 6/12 would likely have been perfect. But 6 fit in length, were a little tight in width. I wore them around the house for a couple of days, and they have eased into a fairly nice fit. They don’t hurt at all, just get a little tight feeling by the end of a hot day. But...I love them, in spite of the size issue. The leather is soft and they are great looking. The light brown goes with everything! Beware of the weird sizing.

I love these shoes. They're very comfortable with great arch support. I got them in rum and the pair I received were lighter than the photo - more of a medium brown than a deep rum brown. But other than that love them so much I might get them in black.

Adorable sandal! I have high arches and wide feet, so I took a size 7 and I found the straps to be a little snug at first but they loosened perfectly by the third day of wear, and I never got any sore spots. I will say that I wish the ankle strap held my foot further into the shoe--sometimes when I walk, my heel slides back a little and it's uncomfortable to walk half on the cushioned footbed and half on the hard edge of the sole. That is such a small complaint versus the shoe's overall comfort and look! They also seem very well made.

I got these in the gold metallic colorway. They were cute, but the straps looked a little thick on my size 6 feet. I'd rate the footbed at 4/5 stars for comfort (I walk a lot and have high arches - Naturalizer N5 insoles are my holy grail but I don't love their current style/colorway offereings).

I have a wide foot with a high arch and high instep, so all around a usual nightmare for a slide style shoe. I ordered about 6 pairs from different brands and these are the ones I kept. (Thanks, Zappos!) As other reviewers have mentioned, they do seem to run wide, which was great for me! I'm usually about a 7.5 but often order an 8 to get a little extra width across the middle of my foot. I ordered these in the 8, and while I wish there was slightly less space between my toes and the end of the shoe, they're totally passable. The foot bed feels fairly supportive, though no true arch support for someone like myself. I preferred it to the Born slide, however, that was my second runner up. They have much more cushioning but are completely flat. My only complaint about these is that the elastic on the inside of the shoe is really sharp and immediately rubs raw a very sensitive part of the foot. Liking everything else, however, I kept them and decided to grin and bear it through the break in phase. It took about two days of wear to soften the sharp edges, and now they're totally great and I can't stop wearing them.

Very stylish sandal. Soft sole and very comfortable to stand on or walk slowly for a short distance, but... the sandal is too loose with not enough grip on the foot - very challenging to walk in at a swifter pace or for more than a few blocks. Keeping them for standing around at parties and such... a little pricey for such a limmited repertuar.

I am a pretty standard 8.5, but these were a half size too large. I eventually was able to order an 8.0, and they fit.

These are beautiful shoes, we’re just too wide for me. I did size up to a whole size 8 when I usually wear a 7 1/2. I think my usual size would have been long enough for me. The leather is soft and a great color. Wish they would have worked for me.

LOVE this platform!! If this is the style you're looking for, THIS is the shoe. OMG, the overall construction is so well done that I literally want to stare at it all day long. The leather wrapping around from side-to-side is seriously gorgeous. These types of platforms can sometimes come off as clunky and too casual with little style, but this is such sophistication and beauty that I HAD to write a review. I love this shoe so much that I'm ordering another pair just to have because I know this is the ONE that I will wear forever! The shoe isn't heavy (which is something I'm always afraid of when ordering a shoe like this) and it has a long enough toe bed that even when the leather stretches (like it will) that my toes will NEVER come close to the edge. I love the contrast in color too, the brown foot pad is the perfect brown. My shoe size is a medium width 7 and the fit is just right. And not to gush, but the way the back of the heel is angled, makes walking just a little easier, makes the shoe look less Frankenstein, and keeps the health of the sole in tact. Oh...the one thing I was expecting because of the brand (Kork-ease)...I guess I was expecting a cushy corky kind of thing...this is not that. You don't see any cork. I don't even know if it is cork. The shoe is very firm with minimal padding. There is absolute zero give or stretch, so if you're looking for a shoe to tour the streets of old town, this may not be it. For me, I'd wear this pretty much anywhere (they were purchased for a week in Las Vegas and were perfect for the long walk to the pool, all around the casino, out to dinner, etc. for several hours (with lots of sitting, standing, walking, sitting, standing, walking) and were quite comfy. However, this is not a shoe that I chose to wear when I knew there was going to be ONLY walking and walking and walking. I personally like much more cushion and arch support. Overall, if you're on the fence, GET THEM!! Free shipping both ways!!

I owned the Ava 1.0. I wore those shoes for 10 years!!!! I loved them soooo much. But they finally broke so I bought the 2.0. NOT THE SAME SHOE!!! I've had these for 2 years. They are good shoes but the quality is not the same at all.

I love korkease and own several pairs..Greer and Ava. I wanted something with less height and love the look of the Myrna 2.0. However the back strap slides off my heel while walking. Fit is great as always except for slipping straps

These are adorable and comfortable! Unfortunately, they don't come in half-sizes. I normally wear 6-6 1/2 in most shoes, so I ordered a six in black. While they seem comfortable (have only worn indoors to try on), they look slightly small. I don't like it when my heel comes close to the edge of a mule or sandal. I ordered the 7, which look better, but are definitely a bit loose, and even slide around. I think 6 1/2 would have been perfect. Still trying to decide. If I can find some type of arch or insert to tighten up the 7s I'll likely keep those. I'd say they run "true to size," but just don't come in my size.

Unfortunately, there are no half sizes - I saw these also sold on Nordstrom and was conflicted with the sizing recommendation where they recommended sizing down but Zappos recommended going a size up if you're in between - Zappos is correct! Padded sole is nice but the leather was not as soft as I thought it would be and the top edge of the leather upper is a bit snug/cuts into the top of my toes.

The Tutsi felt shorter than a regular size 8 on me. I usually get a wide width but went with the size 8 since I have the Greer and the 8 was a perfect fit with no break in period. I think with some break in time, my foot will fit better in the footbed. The footbed is very comfortable. It's almost like wearing slippers.

I didn’t like the shade of “blush” - it’s kinda “orangy”. Other than that - I love the shoes. I am going to order the black ones because they are so comfy and cute!
