I purchased these shoes in black last season and liked the way they fit and looked. Unfortunately, the leather became worn looking after only several wearings and one of the cross-over straps began pulling out of the foot-bed. The last straw was when the bottom "rubber" heel fell off. I'm very disappointed in the quality of these shoes! At the price point, even on "sale," one would expect that they would last more than a season and a half. I threw them away.

Very uncomfortable fit. The footbed felt like I was wearing wooden Dutch clogs. My fourth toes were squashed between the toe peep area. The leather was soft and the brown color is beautiful. But sadly I have to return it.

I really wanted to keep these lovely sandals, but they were just too uncomfortable. They pressed painfully on my little toenails. I don't have this problem with other heels, so it's just something odd about the placement of the straps. I think if you had longer pinkie-toes, you'd have better luck.

These sandals were going to be my go-to classy sandals that I could wear to work and for going out. On a positive note I like the style and the leather is wonderfully luxurious.
But I experience the same problem mentioned by other reviewers that the foot slides and the toes are pushed over the edge. I'm considering fixing this with foot petals tip toes, but that's not my only issue.
This sandals runs a half size small so even with something to keep my foot from sliding I know it's going to annoy me and ALSO the heel strap is quite loose and does not keep my foot down. My heel slips out with every step - even when my toes are not sliding over the edge.
I'm looking elsewhere for good quality, comfortable classy sandals.

Great ARA quality. But... the price is AWESOME. Leather sandals that hug your feet in total comfort. How sweet to walk in comfort. The style is flexible. You can wear to work and wear with jeans. I was not sure of the color, but glad I ordered the brown... great for summer.

These are very comfortable. leather quality is great, very soft, and the cork footbed is supportive. I have a wide foot, high instep and the strap over the instep is a little snug, but i think the leather will form to my foot shape after a few wears. Great for work, easy-to-wear heel height.

I loved the style of this shoe and the heel height. I ordered it because some reviewers said it ran narrow and I have a narrow foot. However, that was not my experience. So unfortunately I had to return the shoe. THe width seemed to normal to me.
