I was looking for sandals I could wear with capri pants and shorts to give me some height (but not too much) and not look like I was too dressed up for any kind of running around, even the grocery store. These are a great color brown, and they are comfortable right out of the box. I will say the straps on the toes seemed tight for the first few minutes, but I did some gentle stretching on them, and they are perfect now. My only complaint about them is that I wish I could tighten one of the straps that goes across the foot near my ankle so it doesn't feel so loose, but that isn't keeping me from wearing/enjoying them. They are true to size, and I would definitely buy these again.
