Ok but not great

Bought these for a trip to Europe with high hopes for comfort with a little added height and day-to-night wardrobe versatility. Wore them for 2 days before I gave up and switched to sneakers. To be fair, I walked all day (except when on the bus/metro or in restaurants) and a lot: on paved and unpaved roads, trails, cobblestone, gravel, sand, etc. No arch support and thin cushioning meant tired feet by mid-afternoon. Footbed stitching irritated and resulted in callouses. Worst of all the toe strap was placed just where it was most likely to cause bunions. You can only adjust the ankle strap but not the other straps. This wasn't a big deal until I had to walk downhill, and my feet were sliding forward in the sandals which worsened friction and created foot strain. Positives: leather was soft, no rubbing from the hardwear, looks cute, rubber soles with no slippage even on wet marble and gravelly trails, extra height from the wedge heel. They probably would be fine for 6-8 hrs of standing or walking on flat surfaces, but if "all day" for you means 10+ hrs or constant walking with little rest, these won't cut it. I would return them if I could.
