These sandals are great because they cover most of the tops of my toes, leaving only my painted toenails to show. They hit right at the perfect place on my toes. They're very soft and comfortable with no break in needed. I usually wear a 36 in Fly London and my feet are on the wide side with a high instep, and this 36 fits perfect. I have other Fly London boots and shoes, they last for years and years, worth the rather high price. The buckle is adorable. I got them in black/ brown and also the diesel color which is sort of gray/blue/greenish, if that is even possible, very pretty.
