I am almost always a 7.5 and needed an 8 in these sandals. But I love them. It's hard to find flat sandals that are comfortable in between the toes (which these are because of the circle big toe holder instead of a heavy piece of braided leather sticking in between your toes!) and also well-constructed. The soles on these are sewn to through the shoe. I had a previous pair (not by same maker) where the soles were glued and I had to have them fixed 5x! So these are worth the price.
Love Bernardo sandals, but something has changed since I used to buy them. This pair was way too short and I will have to go up a whole size next time I buy a pair. Width was great for my fairly wide foot, but heels and toes almost over the edge.
Classic styling. Sturdy construction. Quality materials. I have one small complaint, my foot makes a sticking sound when I walk; I am hoping this will lessen as the sandals are broken in and the leather softens.
What a cute sandal - ordered it in red. It is a true, bright, flashy red. The sole is leather and very well made - I am not a fan of rubber, flexible soles on shoes. The toe ring is small and I had trouble getting my big toe into it. The strap across the top of my foot was very tight, even with the elastic at one side. I don't have an incredibly high arch so I was very surprised. The strap around the back of the foot fits; however, it's so long that my foot sits kind of loosey-goosey on the heel. After walking in them for a bit it became evident that my foot did not fit onto the sandal bed - instead my heels landed crookedly. As I walked the sandal shifted so eventually my food was halfway off the sandal. I thought this would correct itself as the strap over my foot loosened, but it did not. Very cute - just doesn't work for me.
