Rated 3 out of 5Â by vintagecameo1980 Slightly disappointing
Just wore mine for the first time. Looks-wise, they're just as awesome as they are in pictures. However, I'm having a significant problem with the fit. They're huge around the ankle and slide around a lot, and it's not something that can be fixed by adjusting the straps (it's the width of the back of the shoe). This causes my feet to slide forward and make the sandals appear too short even though length-wise they're technically a perfect fit.
They're also huge around the calves, which I find odd because I'm not overly tiny (size 4 overall but with fairly defined calf muscles - definitely not stick legs). This causes the back portion to twist outward by about two inches and the whole thing to look crooked. I've adjusted all the straps to the smallest setting but that's not enough.
So I'm going to have to poke new holes. The sandals are so cute and original that I'm going to keep them and "alter" them. However, for the pretty hefty price tag you wouldn't expect to do an amateur leatherworking job. So I feel the design is a little flawed in that these sandals are clearly designed for larger people only.
I marked them "true to size" because yes, my regular size works just fine as far as the length of the sole. But if you have very thin legs, or even average legs like me, you're going to be doing some work on these.

I originally bought the Sarafina style and they wouldn't go over my calfs so I exchanged them for these in the rust suede. The fit is perfect and I love them. I usually wear a size 9 1/2 to 10, I ordered the 9 1/2 and it is perfection! I will definitely be rocking these all summer long.

I got these in the tan color and love them! They fit a bit snug around the toe area but otherwise they are great. Love them! Wish they were 50.00 less but still, I couldn't resist!

I bought these sandals a year ago. I have a size 10 foot and hate shoes that make my feet look big. These sandals do not make my feet look big at all they are super comfortable. You might need to adjust the straps to hug your ankle and calf but besides that I am so happy I bought these sandals
Rated 5 out of 5Â by ldmace Love these sandals!
So just like the previous review I waited about 2 years to get these. I'm 5'11 and normally a 10.5-11, but can sometimes fit size 10 depending on how the shoe runs, especially if its a boot. I wasn't sure whether to get a 10 or 11 here but I got an 11. It was PERFECT. Literally like a glove to my foot, I didn't need it to be any smaller or any bigger. Also I do have muscular calves and these sandals still fit perfect and come up high on the leg. I'd say they run just a TINY bit small. Also these are EXTREMELY comfortable!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by robvball so many compliments
After looking at these for 2 years I finally decided to purchase them. Normally I really dont like the gladiator style, but these look so different I decided to buy them. So glad I did! I receive compliments wherever I wear them! Also Im an avid runner so I have pretty muscular legs. The adjuster straps are perfect for any leg shape...skinny, medium, large, muscular, etc. So glad I finally bought these!

These are practical and cute, IF you an manage to open the annoying packaging. The quality is good but they're nothing too spectacular. I am 5'2" so maybe they don't look as good on shorter women. Debating whether or not to return them.
