I love these sandals. I have two pair and wear them every single day until I have to pull out my smart wool socks. Other reviewers have said they aren't walking shoes but I've walked for miles in mine. They are my go to shoes if I'm going to be on my feet all day. I have thin narrow feet so I think these run wide. However, the velcro and straps allow for a custom fit. I take mine to the cobbler to shorten the top strap for a perfect fit. I plan to purchase a couple pair next year as mine are wearing out.

I love these shoes, and am excited to see Zappos now carries them. I have this style, 2 pairs, one in black and one in brown, and they are my work shoes until the snow gets deep. I bought mine in The Netherlands. However, I have wide feet, and Zappos really does need to bring in wide sizes. I want to buy more of these in wide! These are great and professional looking, although they are not the best for walking distances.

This style is ideal for people who like a custom fit for each foot -- my left foot is wider than the other. They are super comfortable, especially when I travel in the plane and my feet swell. The black patent leather is nice (painted toe nails look great) and versatile, but I wish I had ordered the red.

I have 7-8 pairs in a variety of colors. Nice sandal, comfortable day, weekend shoe, however, it is not a walking shoe. If you are on vacation I would not suggest that you go sightseeing all day in this shoe, the comfort level does not hold up. I do get compliments and attention especially with the red patent. Beautiful color.

I have been looking for black sandals that would accommodate my orthotics. After trying about a half dozen, this is the one that finally really worked. Worked AND I like it. Super comfortable and just a nice simple looking sandal. My new summer work favorite. Wolky is a great brand. I've been super happy with their shoes. Lasted a long time and maintained comfort.

This is my fifth pair of Wolky sandals - a great shoe for walking and strangers regularly compliment them and ask for details.

This is without a doubt the best shoe ever for me. Insole is perfect, great support and adjustable with easy to close Velcro straps. I have at least 6 pairs in different colors and wear every day. Often I am stopped by ladies asking about these shoes, brand name and where I purchased them. Had to purchase my white with black straps from another shop as I have waited 2 seasons for Zappos to have in stock , but they have not. I finally learned to give it up and order a size up. In other shoes I can wear an 8 but the Wolky fits much better in the Euro size of 40. Definitely five stars. *****

These are a great sandal choice for women with hallux rigidus for the firm sole, high cushioning, rocker bottom, and wide adjustable toe strap.

Have a pair about 5 years old and it is the only comfortable shoe I have. Bought 4 different colors this Spring and plan to wear them unless there is snow on the ground. They are extremely comfortable. I bought them a size larger than I usually wear and they feel great. No break-in period needed. They are attractive on the foot as well.

These shoes are a pleasant surprise. The key factor in their purchase for me was the removable footbed; it enables me to put my full-length orthotics inside and the fit still remains nice. I was originally skeptical about the heel rise since I prefer to wear flat shoes, but I don't notice the rise at all when wearing these. I also thought they might look a bit clunky on my feet but they don't. These shoes are designed well, and the lines actually make my hard-working, wide feet look a bit more feminine. The shoes are extremely comfortable and I can imagine wearing these all day walking around. The adjustable straps are nice and I've found being able to adjust them through the day is also very helpful in maintaining proper fit. Since having to wear orthotics, I've become an extremely picky shoe-buyer and these met my standards! I'm quite happy and might even buy more in different colors once I can save the money. (Yes - only drawback is the cost) In terms of fit, they run small. I normally wear a 41 or 42 and I had to return my 42 for a 43 in this shoe. I don't think this was a result of the orthotics because I tried them on both with and without them in place.

I have these in several colors and love them because they are good for all day -- farmers' market, lunch, book store, wherever. Comfortable beyond belief because of the adjust-ability and sole that is cushy yet supportive. Love them totally. I first saw Wolkys on my podiatrist over a decade ago so I took her wearing them as a very good recommendation for the brand. I have been wearing them ever since. By the way, I didn't need to see the podiatrist again after I found them. Love them all.

These shoes are one of the 2 most comfortable shoes ever. I have had them on since 7 am and it is now 6 pm and I cannot feel anything but comfort. I am typically an 8.5 size, I selected to buy a 39, they are about 1/4 inch short. Oh well. I kept them anyway. enjoy comfortable walking forever!

This is the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn, also the most expensive that I have ever purchased. But after I had a pair and walked in them all summer, I had to have another pair in red! I love these shoes.

Cute and comfy. And sizing is correct. I wear size 13 shoes and am delighted to say "Wolky" got it right, US 13 = 44/45 (not 43 as Dasko and others like to claim). Thank you! Please continue to add more styles.

I owned a pair of these about eight years ago but as I have gotten older needed a size up; the 38 in Wolky is now a 39 and fit my 7½M feet much more accurately. Do pay heed to the description Zappos has on sizing! Overall I really continue to like these sandals. I tried others in the line that look similar and reviewed them but this costlier version is the one that meets my funky foot needs (cushy, good arch support, lots of adjustments, all for real walking around). I am hoping to avoid the return of plantar issues. I ordered this black smooth leather pair and one in the jewel tones on black leather. I love the colorful, slightly glitzy pair but the left heel adjustment has a leather flap that holds and pads the strap to a metal ring. That flap rubbed my ankle bone in the wrong spot unlike the betting fitting right sandal. I will say the leather was much softer and more comfortable that the smooth black leather pair I received but which fit my heels better. Go figure! Unfortunately, Zappos did not have my size in the colorful pair for me to try again so thanks to their wonderful service, both pairs will be going back. I hesitated to give five stars overall because of the inconsistency in leather feel and construction. It is interesting that despite the price of these sandals (the costliest that I have ever bought in shoes and sandals), that there are these quality issues. Sigh...

Nice for long walks when I don't want to wear athletic shoes. The leather required breaking-in during the first couple of walks, and the Velcro rubbed slightly against the top of my foot at first. But I love the support and the height, and they are great for giant bunions. They have become my go-to casual shoes. I wish they had a version with more feminine straps, and maybe adjustable buckles instead of Velcro. They look less plain when the toenails are painted in bright, pretty colors. I liked them enough to buy a second pair in a different color.

I tried these shoes in the yellow (LOVED!) and the black snake (thought it looked a little orthopedic on my wide elderly foot). Unfortunately both the 41 and the 40 were too long. I'm hoping the yellow comes in in a 39; will give it a try. The shoe is very comfortable; seems like it will have good if not excellent support, and is adjustable in every way but length. As always, love Zappo's.

These are such comfortable shoes, they are amazing. I have problem feet (neuromas and arthritis) and these shoes are the answer. Unfortunately I did not really care for the color options Zappos had available. We are going on a trip and I wanted a shoe that would look cute and "in season". The black patent was just too shiny and wintery looking. So....I had to find the snake skin color elsewhere. But these are great shoes and SOOO comfortable. I guess I was just too late to get a good color from Zappos. I love Zappos and I tell everyone to use them. But sometimes their selection is limited...

These are THE BEST SANDALS EVER. They are very good looking and work with everything. They are also very comfortable with a thick semi soft sole that lets you walk forever in them. Since these come in many colors, I can get by with only this style. I am purging my other wimpy sandels in favor of these sturdy beautiful ones.

This is my 3rd pair of black Wolky Jewels and 8th pair in total. I developed a stress fracture 3 years ago & this shoe saved me. The podiatrist wanted me to wear only athletic shoes afterwards. Wolky Jewels go MUCH better with the clothes I wear when I 'm not working out than athletic shoes! I have a high instep and a wide foot.

Comfortable right out of the box! No break in time needed. Fit perfectly on both feet due to the adjustability. Have a bunion on one foot and was able adjust it to fit. Love them and will buy more.

The very best, most comfortable shoe I have ever owned. So stylish too. The only shoe, when wearing, women ask about.

I usually wear a 42 in Danskos but always order a 43 in Wolkys and they fit perfectly every time. I have a high arch and can wear these sandals all day long walking on concrete without any problems. This is my 3rd pair of black patent wolkys--but about my 12th pair. I think the Jewell style has great support. Amazing shoes and sandals, i love them.
