I love Jambu sandals and have two other pairs that I wear every day. I was so excited to find these on sale! I was very disappointed with how NARROW they fit. I can't squeeze my feet into them. If you have narrow feet then these are the sandals for you! Much prettier in person.

My second pair of Jambu shoes but not my last! Got these to add a brown dressier shoe to my wardrobe. The alternating bronze straps are icing on the cake.
Comfortable right out of the box. Extra roomy at toe and heel for those with longer heels and toes, especially ladies who's second and third toes are longer than the big toe. My toes are pretty much evenly curved from great toe to pinky so this is just extra " swelling" room for me!
Slightly upturned toe eliminates heinous toe-scrunch like you see with so many celebrity feet. Gag. Cracks me up to see them in 100K dresses yet with ghastly feet and toes scrunched and clinging to the front of their shoes like mortally wounded cockroaches.
Heel is a bit bulky but provides excellent balance and stability, and bulkiness is offset by delicate yet surprisingly strong Velcro heel straps. These tighten well and so far seem to stay put.
I have had two major tendon reconstructions on my left ankle and now the same ankle has an Achilles Tendon injury. My right ankle also has tendon damage and I have severe burning neuropathy and plantar fasciitis as well. When the good Creator gave out great legs all of you other ladies beat me in line but I did get to the front with pretty feet at least. As a matter of fact looking at my feet it's hard to believe I'm in constant agony from them.
So when I find a shoe that does not pinch, hurt or torture me I naturally want to tell others.
Ladies, I got this at a steal under $40 but at full price it's still a bargain. You will love this shoe!
PS: ladies with narrow feet will most likely find this shoe too wide, even if they can wear a regular M width like I do. The M width in this shoe is still M, but it's a roomy M, which is great towards the end of the day when feet can swell.
