I bought the Rieker Regina sandals based upon a very comfortable pair I owned and wore out. My other sandals were soft gold leather, and they looked fairly similar to this sandal. I was disappointed that the leather uppers are quite stiff and not in the least bit soft. The footbed feels wonderful, but I have a high arch and the scratchy leather dug into the tops of my feet, making little abrasions in the first wearing. Perhaps the leather will soften in time, but these are not as comfortable as I expected.

I ordered this sandal knowing the reputation of Rieker although I do not like European sizing. Unlike other sandal with E sizing these fit great. They are not the most comfortable but they do fit. Nice dark red color too.

If they still had these available in my size I would purchase a second pair. I picked these out of my closet more often than most other sandals last summer with everything from crops and capris to jeans to the soft knit career wardrobe pieces I live in when working. For me they have been extremely comfortable. They look great. The color is right on as far as red goes. The stone in the center is just a great little design feature that makes them different but not, hey, look at my shoes different. Wish I had them in half a dozen colors. I would grab what's left before they're gone. There is one very small area, where after walking a lot, one strap in one spot causes a bit of a rub. I would assume that is just something about my foot in that area or a simple flaw in manufacturing. Either way, it has not been enough to deter me from wearing them.

Wore these sandals on a recent vacation. They were comfortable from the first time I put them on. Usually I have to break my sandals in (a lesson learned after taking three new pairs on vacation with no back up) but these didn't cause any chafing or blisters, even though I went from Seattle to the tropics. I wear a 7 or a 7 1/2 and the sevens are perfect. I plan to wear these a lot!

loved the look, but it is hard to know what to wear with them -- shiny red leather with a sensible shoe bottom. Wore to give a presentation at a summer conference -- business casual. They almost worked.... Verrrry comfortable.

Unfortunately my shoe size is a half size and many European styles don't come in half sizes. That makes it difficult for sandals, as you can wear thin or thick socks to help go up or down a half size. These would be great sandals for traveling, going to museums, shopping, or just wearing around town on summer days. The price was great and I do wish they worked for me but had to return them.

these sandals are so soft, they are like walking on clouds. I get sore heels from walking on hard surfaces and these are just magic... I should have got two pairs, especially at that price, delivery to Australia was super speedy and it has been happy feet and happy days ever since.
Thank you so, so much - did I say I loved them :-)
