I am a huge fan of Naot footwear -- bought my first sandal about 25 years ago and have never looked back. The shoes may seem expensive, but they're extremely comfortable and they last ... and last. I've had several pair still in great shape after 10 years! I have 11 pair of Naot shoes: 4 sandals, 4 slingback style, and 3 regular style shoes. I have wanted the Gabriela sandal for quite a while and finally added it to my collection. I read several reviews that the Gabriela runs narrow and that is somewhat true. It is part of the "Elegant" line, designed for the narrow to medium width. I ordered the sandals in size 40, my usual size and when they arrived, I wore them around the house for a couple of hours and here's my first impression. Length was right on. There are 3 straps: the one across the toe area is fixed and it did feel a bit tight; the diagonal strap has elastic with a bit of stretch built in; and the ankle strap is very adjustable. I found that the toe area strap stretched a bit in those couple of hours. The next day I wore the sandal all day, about 14 hours, and never even knew they were on my feet. I am a borderline between an 8.5M and a 9AA fit, but I definitely have a narrow heel and can easily walk out of my shoes. A Nordstrom's shoe salesman suggested that I try slingbacks for a better heel fit and they definitely work well for me. Most "regular" shoes I own are either tie-shoes or have a Mary Jane strap. The Gabriela is my only slip-on style sandal, so I am pleased to have it towards a slightly tighter fit, and I do mean slightly. With the above comments, I do highly recommend the Gabriela sandal. It has a classic style and will be in my collection for many years. I would have preferred a regular leather to Nubuck, but that's my only negative.

Wish I could, but no others fit like Naots. I loved the Clarks Wave series, now discontinued.

Wish that they were just a little bit longer, loved the style, just what I was looking for, but cannot justify that kind of money for a less then perfect fit. I will keep trying .

Naot is one of my favorite brands and did not disappoint with this purchase. I especially like the velcro strap so I can adjust the tightness as needed.

I love Naot sandals. I used to wear Mephistos, but the Naot sandals are just as comfortable at 1/3 the price. I live in Hawaii, so I wear sandals every day, year round, and these shoes are very easy on my feet, and stylish with really pretty color palettes. The Gabriella is my second Naot sandal, (Naomi was mu first), and I?m already thinking about getting a third pair in yet another style.

Mephisto, if you can afford them.

YAy oh yay! A great little (emphasis on the "little") sandal. Am exchanging it for the brown though as I'm keeping the charcoal in another Naot style. But yay. This 35 euro is a real 4.5 - 5, not an almost 5.5-6 or worse, 6.5-7 like most of these clodhopper cork insoles are. Beware - there is NO extra room though, so if you like them roomy, go up.

I love these shoes. They are casual and feel so good on my feet. I've had plantar factitious and these shoes just seem to hug my feet. I think they run a bit narrow, but for my long (size 42), narrow feet, they are awesome!

This sandal is part of Naot's narrow line. Don't order it if your foot is on the wide side or you will be one of the reviewers who find it too narrow. I love the Naot Elegant line because most comfort/support shoes are too wide for me and this line generally fits me well. This shoe is beautiful and well made. The footbed was great, having the usual Naot cushioning and support, but unlike most Naots in this line, it was not comfortable because of a design flaw: the stitching that holds the metal loop for the adjustable ankle strap was thick and rubbed against the side of my foot. Additionally, I found the leather to be a bit stiffer than that of my other Naots, and the ankle strap was very long. I love the design - a delicate slip on with an adjustable strap for the perfect fit. I would have kept these even with the stiffer leather and the longish strap, but I could not overlook the rubbing issue. The fit was perfect and true to Naot sizing. I am typically a 7.5, but wear a 39 (8-8.5) in Naot.

I loved this style in slate-colored leather. The only problem for me was the very narrow width, which squeezed my pinkie toes tight inside the sandal. Had to return.

When I first got these, I couldn't figure out how to make them fit on my feet - the soles seemed wrong for the way my foot was shaped, too. But I had something to attend, it was 90 degrees out, and I needed to wear something. So I bit the bullet and wore them out -- I'm so glad I did. They molded to my feet, and the strap adjusted to keep my feet secure but not tightly bound. They are, no lie, the most comfortable sandals I have ever owned in my life. Took a few hours to break them in, but worth it.

In that Naot is the only shoe I can walk in, I needed some shoes for a wedding that I can wear nylons with. So these sandals are perfect. Some Naot's I wear a 36 and some 37. In this sandal a 37 as it is somewhat narrower.

This is a nice looking sandal, but unfortunately it runs a little small. I ordered my usual Naot size, but my heal was at the edge of the shoe. They looked like they didn't fit properly. I was disappointed to have to return them.

I ordered what I thought was my size, 39 (8). They were too small. I returned them for a size 40. They fit perfectly and are really cute. The customer service folks at Zappos get 5 stars too!

I ordered this in vintage slate in my regular 40 size. They were a tad short and narrow and got them in a 41. I have 15 pairs of naots and this is my new favorite. Love it. Just order it a size up. Beautiful color and foot bed is light grey.

This is a beautiful, dainty sandal. Sadly, the cross strap on one foot is 1/4 inch too narrow to contain my bunion. I must return it.

I got the green color and they are beautiful, but NATO is just not comfortable on my foot. If you wear naot I think you would be very happy with these.

I wanted to love these shoes but alas, they are too narrow. I do not think a larger size will solve the problem because of the open fit. The color is beautiful. I have worn Naot’s for over 20 years - they are wonderful shoes, more styles than ever, and go with everything. I am always looking for new ideas and will continue to order them. This pair was an exception. the product is 5 stars overall but for me the comfort and fit did not measure my foot - Usually Naot’s feel like they were made just for my foot and arch.

I didn’t realize these were your very narrow models so they just won’t work for me. I have several prs of Naots & they are my favorite brand. These are the first ones that don’t fit me. I love Zappos so will be ordering another pr.

Beautiful sandal with great support. Fits my narrow foot very well. Style with adjustable strap near ankle works well for me. Toe strap a little loose, but pleased with overall fit. Slate color is a beautiful neutral.

The green is an amazing color. I wanted these shoes so badly but I really need a back strap (the top velcro helps but isn't enough). If you usually like slip on sandals, give these a try. They're fashionable and comfortable.
