Â by onesixeleven Stylish but rubber sole
These are really nice, ocmfortable sandals. I usually wear a 7.5 in sandals and 8 in shoes / boots - but often find myself sizing up to 8 in sandals these days for a bit of extra room since I have wide feet. I got these in an 8 and they were true to size.
I really like the style and the leather, and the buckle is unusual but it seems okay (it's just a knob that you push through a notch, like on some belts). The major drawback of these sandals for me is the rubber sole. The colour and material really draws down the quality of the sandal overall - going from stylish and funky to a bit too "eco" and orthopedic. If the sole had been black or leather, I definitely think these would've been a keeper. But they're going back.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by killclick Looks expensive, feels great
I have extremely picky feet. I will not wear shoes that make me hurt. They are wide, and flat, and have had many a broken bone. I also won't wear sneakers with anything other than workout clothes.
I love these. They go with everything. The tan is really beautiful and light and looks expensive. I can walk several miles in them without issue (though eventually the lack of arch support, being that they are flat, becomes an issue).
The straps are a little tight, and force my foot about 1/4 an inch too far forward, and if i'd do it again I'd probably size up .5 sizes, but I don't think it would be worth going a full size up especially since they are leather and with a bit of wear the strap is going to stretch.
They don't hurt at all, there was no break in period, and I haven't worn anything that wrapped around or between my toes in a few years, so if they were going to hurt there I think i would have noticed!!
In case there is any confusion, the footbed is leather lined, and the bottom is rubber, which is not especially noticable unless you are directly looking at the bottom of your feet, and it provides great cushion and traction.
Don't hesitate, they are really great.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by chauchat Comfortable, but a bit "granola"
I almost kept these sandals. They were part of a great sandal purchase earlier in the summer (if you're going to pay for shipping anyway, might as well get a lot...and besides, none of my local stores have shoes...) They did not make the second cut because on me, they looked a bit too close to Birkenstocks. They were, however, very cushiony and pleasant to wear, so I would recommend them if you like more of your foot covered than I.
