I love Jambu shoes. It's almost all I wear. I actually really liked these too, but I sent them back because I didn't feel like they were quite feminine enough for what I was looking for. I couldn't picture them with dresses and skirts, but probably would be cute when worn more casually. The description says strappy elegance....not how I'd describe them. It may have also been the olive color. Won't stop me from continuing to buy Jambu in the future though.

I loved the look of these shoes, but knew instantly that they would not be comfortable. Instead of placing the Velcro closure on the ankle strap on the side, it is placed at the back of the heel...where it rubs every time you take a step. I reluctantly sent them back

This shoe is one of the few that I have given a 5-star rating. Like my 2 other JAMBU sport wedge sandals it is very true to size, with a tiny bit of wiggle room for those times when your feet might swell a bit. The sport wedge is just the right angle and cradles your foot. No slipping forward, no pressure on the ball of your foot and no hideous and potentially deforming toe scrunch due to the upturned toe area.
The straps that go over the top of your foot are elastic for a custom fit yet do not pinch or dig into your foot. A Velcro closure makes for easy on and off and is generous enough for ankles up to about 11 inches in my estimation my ankles are 10 inches and there is plenty of room Another thing I like is that my toes don't come out between the straps. The muted olive color goes with pretty much everything. The footbed is soft and comfortable even for my brutally painful feet and I can walk for several hours in these shoes despite 2 ankle surgeries.
Another think that strikes me when I look at these shoes is how well made they are. They feel a bit heavier than some shoes but they are actually quite light. This is because they are not flexible and are very solid and substantial. Soft, flexible shoes are not always in the best interests of your feet! When you walk the rocking motion propels you forward and eases pressure on knees, ankles and back. If you compare these shoes to wellness shoes such as Dansko and Sanita whch are approved by the American Podiatric association, you will find a very similar footbed and shape.
Try these shoes. Your feet, back, knees, legs and wardrobe will thank you!
If yu have never tried JAMBU shoes, I highly recommend startig with this pair

These are my second pair of Jambu shoes. Very comfortable, good-looking and flattering to the leg and ankle. Olive color is surprisingly neutral - just the right combination of green and taupe. Unlike some shoes, they look good with skirts of all lengths. And the hook-and-loop closure on the ankle strap is easy to close and ensures a snug fit.
