For something with a name like Kork-Ease, these are quite heavy, more so than a very similar Born version I got a couple years ago. Also, there is absolutely no arch support, which was also not the case with the similar Born wedge. Even feels like a slight dip where the arch should. However, because the upper part is quite comfortable and they seem tolerable to walk in, and style and color wise I need something exactly like this, I've decided to keep them. But doubt I'll be looking much at this brand in the future. This is the second time I've found one of these to be less than expected.

I have mixed feelings about this shoe, and I would probably send it back if I hadn't already worn them outside. I've been looking forever for a flat sandal with support that still looks stylish, and at first I thought these have a fun, unique look. On the plus side, they do have nice support in the footbed. However, the ties at the back rubbed blisters on my heels, then the little Vs formed by the criss cross straps rubbed on both sides of my toes. Now, I'm not even liking the style as much as I thought I would. I was looking for an everyday, go-to sandal, but these are not turning out to be as versatile as I thought they would be.

I ordered A LOT of sandals before I found a pair that were comfy. These don't rub my anklebones at all. I did get a couple blisters on my toes but I was walking for HOURS. If you break them in slowly they are great! I usually wear 8.5 and the 8 fit perfectly.

These were great, ran true to size, stylish, and comfortable. However, the "jacket buff suede" color is gray. In the photos it looks close to black but in real life it is a cool dark gray.

At first they seemed comfortable but after walking in them for a bit my feet were in so much pain. The straps around toes are tight and the sole material sticks to feet and causes blisters. Terrible.

I've been wanting to try Kork-Ease, so when I saw these on sale I jumped. I have boney, super-aweful feet and can't wear most sandles or heels for various reasons. This heel height/platform height/adjustable strap combo is just right, and the toe doesn't turn up like a lot of shoes these days seem to (which really exacerbates the pain in my arthritic toes). Color is quite beautiful and goes with everything. Only minor complaint is they make quite a bit of leathery noise when you walk down a quiet hall at work - I expect that will go away as they soften up. I would guess these would be to narrow for someone with a normal-to-wide foot - not sure whether they're available in more widths. Yep - I bought another pair in a different color too, which weren't on sale. Worth the cost!

I'm firm 6.5, 7 fits much better than 6. The sandals are very narrow, but sooooo comfortable! After years wearing flip flops in summer I wanted something what I could wear all day, that will make me taller and does not hurt my feet. First 2 days were a challenge: you definitely need time to break this shoes (very thick leather) After couple bandaids (that I wore under sandals to protect my feet fingers, can wear this sandals all day outside or inside without any problem. This are really REALLY comfortable and make me look tall again! Bought on sale price, which made my purchase even sweeter! My first purchase from Zappos: good one!

These are padded very nicely and I like the flexible sole and lower heel. Very cute style with jeans, shorts, or skirts. Made very well.

I have been wearing Kork-Ease for the last five years and always receive compliments. I replaced my older black Ava's because they simply wore out. I wear them in summer, adding height, which looks great with a maxi dress and in the fall with black opaque stockings. They're lightweight and comfortable! Love my Kork-Ease!

Beautiful shoe! I have a pair of Kork Ease sandals that I love and I wanted to love these, but when I walk they slip off my feet! Beautiful leather, soft and very comfortable except when I walk! I'm going to play with the straps a bit more but may have to return them.

Shoes are the perfect size and fit beautifully. Sometimes mules are hard to keep on your feet but these are a dream. And the cork is a comfortable material I can wear all day and my feet will not get tired. Great looking too.

Very comfortable flats that have arch support and don't pinch the toes. The left shoe was a little tight around the ankle but after two days of wear with a bandaid they were fully broken in.

These are the perfect summer sandals. I absolutely love them. I was looking for a brown sandal with a chunky heel, comfortable and cute. These fit the bill just right. They are my new favorite sandals. I often receive compliments when I wear them. I really like this brand. They seem high quality and well made.

Love this shoe. It looks lovely and the padding on the bottom makes it so much more comfortable than most flat sandals. The creamy colored upper is glittery. I wasn't expecting that, but ended up liking it. I wear a 7 1/2 and the 8 worked perfect instead of the 7, which was way small.

I purchased these in black and loved them so much I went back for the brown! They are a lower platform than the Ava, so you get a bit more comfort without sacrificing too much style. I've had lots of compliments on these, so they aren't frumpy at all. I wear a size 6.5, and the size 6.0 was definitely too small. The 7.0 was a perfect fit! They do require a bit of break-in time, but after a few wearings they are perfection!

I adore these shoes! I am slightly confused about the reviews urging buyers to purchase one size down, though. I am a size 6.5 medium with just the slightest of bunions from years of dance. I ordered a size 6.0 and couldn't even get my foot into the shoe. I exchanged for a size 7.0 and am very pleased. The size 7.0 was definitely the way to go. They do take a bit of time (2-3 wearings) to break them in, but after that they are heavenly. They give you the look of a high platform or wedge with the comfort of a flat.

These are my second pair of this exact shoe. I wore them out because I wear them ALL THE TIME. They are my "go to" shoe living on the coast of SC. My strap finally blew out on my first pair after 4 years and I immediately ordered another pair from Zappos which arrived the very next day! So thankful for Next Day delivery and a great pair of shoes!

I got these in brown and they look like old lady shoes - and not in a fun, retro way. Maybe another color would look better. They are comfy and the leather is soft and I can tell will only get softer. The sole has some padding. I will keep them for the comfort factor. I am usually a size 9, ordered a 9 and they fit just right.

These aren't as cute in person as they are in the picture. They're too loose for me as well. They're going back. I will say the sole is really cushy.

Love these so much! I have a pair of the higher ones in black, but I think these are more comfortable for everyday walking. Super comfortable, and I love the clunky quality of it. The shoe does feel a little bit big, but not too big that going a half size down would be better. I am a true 7.5 and I ordered the 38s, and they are easy to slip on and off.
