    They were a bit tight around my toes and probably made for a narrower foot. I thought I would get blisters breaking them in but luckily the material must be stretchy enough that they didn't hurt. Normally wear a 7-7.5 and the 7 fits fine.

    Beautiful shoes but my ankles are just to small for them.

    Comfortable fit right from the start. If you wear different sizes depending on the manufacturer,
    choose the smaller one. They will fit perfect.

    Great for everyday sandals - they stay on well and look good with shorts and dresses. I had to exchange them though and got half size down, because my regular 8.5 was too loose.

    Really beautiful sandal. Sleek, simple design, gorgeous leather detailing, nicely padded. I am mostly a 7.5, occasionally a 7. I got a 7 as I know this brand tends to run a half size large. The footbed and ankle straps fit perfectly, but the front strap across the toes and forefoot was too tight. I could not have sized up, as the footbed would have been too long. I needed a walking sandal for shopping and sightseeing and these were just not comfortable enough for that. Sadly, they have to go back.

    I've looked at those sandals for almost a year before ordering. I was soooo disappointed when they came in. They look nothing like the picture. The leather was terrible and the shoe looked really cheap. Had to send them back.

    These are a comfortable stylish Gentle Souls sandal. You will be a fashionista while wearing these. However, for me there was not enough side support, too airy. My foot slipped around. The ankle strap did not provide a secure feeling for me while walking. I wanted to keep these but finally decided to return them. They were a fabulous price though.

    I loved these sandals-the detailing, the beautiful leather, the style, but they just did not work for me. Too narrow, no arch support and very little cushioning compared with other Gentle Souls sandals. So back they went. Sigh.
