I chose these sandals to wear to Italy, where I knew we would be walking many km per day. They not only were perfectly comfortable the instant I put them on, but looked really cute with a dress when I wore them out for dinner. I wear an 8 1/2 or 9. I ordered the 9 and they were a perfect fit! Love the sandals, love Zappos!

I bought these to wear with skinny jeans or leggings and was not satisfied with the shape of the boots. I put them on and they were quite narrow on my feet. The shaft of the boot was also narrow and the zipper rubbed on my ankle, I have sent them back.

These sandals are gorgeous! Fabulously soft leather with a silky manmade footbed liner and nice bendy, flexible soles. They look fantastic! However, on my size 8 feet they felt just a bit too short and they were also too narrow - my little toe wanted to hang over the side of the footbed and my heel didn't feel as if it was being properly 'cupped' at the back. But I love them so much I'm going to size up and see what happens then. Watch this space!

I ordered this to replace size 40 ordered previously which was too small. This pair was so much larger that I think one had to be mismarked. Too bad, cute shoe.

This is a very cute shoe. I wish I could keep it, but it is too short in the toe area. I think the next size (6.5) would slip at the heel. Thanks for easy return, Zappos!

Was excited to find these. Pictures are so pretty, heel is low but feminine, nice colors. Got them, put them on and checked them out in the mirror. They look great from straight on and from the sides. Then I looked down and yick. Looked like I had club feet, not my idea of attractive. The toebox is very round, very roomy, and very wide, yet my big toes hit the top of the shoes and I knew I wouldn't want to wear them. These are not for me.

Adorable and comfy Mary Janes. The adjustable strap is nice. Nice for a little extra height. I can tell they will need a tad bit of breaking in regarding the edges at the toe (the tops of my feet hurt a bit,) but I don't expect it to take more than a day or two.

These shoes are so great looking and fun to wear! They make me feel like dancing. I've gotten lots of compliments; ("I like your kicks," says my niece.) I ordered them for the appearance, but also for the wide toe box (needed after bunion surgery), and the arch support. The arch is built way up, with the heel raised a little, but no padding in the forefoot. I ended up with bruised bones under the ball of my foot. I then purchased high quality innersoles at a running shoe store (not cheap), where they explained that the innersoles that came with the shoe are really not good, functionally. So, $50-some dollars later, I am happily enjoying my stylin' sneakers.

I love the style of this boot and hoped that it would work for me. The boot was a little close-fitting, but would soften. The big problem for me was that the arch was not in right place (too far back). My heart is broken!

The shoe was a bit snug when it arrived, and comparing it to other shoes I own it ran a little smaller in the toe and width. I think ordering a half size larger would have fixed the issue, but they do not offer 10.5.

I'm wearing these now because I love them so much I don't want to take them off! If you like Taos sandals in the summer - this could be your go to fall shoe. The Taos footbed has great arch support and the knit cover is too cute. Can wear barefoot or with a light sock. PS thanks again to Zappos whose free shipping allowed me to return a couple of duds before finding this shoe!

Love these shoes! They are extremely comfortable, and perhaps most importantly I don't end up thinking about them when I am wearing them. Shoes that draw my attention because they are causing pain or are slippery or require me to devote extra attention to them on uneven surfaces annoy me, and I love that I can put these on and forget about them other than when I occasionally realize that my feet are particularly comfortable. I have low ankle bones, which means that the sides of a lot of styles of shoes cut under the ankle bone. These have low enough sides that this isn't a problem. There is enough cushioning that I can walk or stand a lot and not have sore feet. The leather is very supple, so I had no breaking in period. I have problems with balance, and the treads on these shoes grip well enough that they help to keep me stable and I've had no problems with slipping on slick surfaces. Overall I am very happy and would order these again.

These shoes feel amazing so I'm going to keep them but the Burnt Orange photo is WAY off for color. The shoes are more of a honey color. Definitely not the bright saturated orange I was looking for.

These are beautiful shoes. They are comfortable inside. Really cute. My feet are narrow and especially hard to fit. My heel kept slipping up in a way that I knew would annoy me over time, so I had to return them. Boohoo!

These are cute (kind of) if you're looking for brown boots. But...they're brown, and I had ordered the gray. I guess their excuse for calling them gray was a slight bit of grayish hue in the decorative buckle straps...or something. In an event, they're going back. I can report also that other customers' experience with the fit is roughly consistent with mine. I could have worn them, but they would have been slightly tight in the toe box, and not all that comfortable.

Comfortable, but requires a short break in period. It rubbed on my heel the first few wears. I added a cute peacock feather shoe clip to dress it up for an outdoor wedding.

The Taos Stellar are really cute booties. Unfortunately they are a bit too flat and you have to double tie the shoe strings so they do not come untied. The bonus is that I can use my Orthotics in the booties. These are great with jeans.

I would have kept these but the ball of my left foot felt like it wanted more cushion than this shoe provided. I had bunion surgery two years ago and have little flexibility in that joint. Otherwise The arch and heel felt great. The hugged my foot just perfectly and didn't interrupt my stride. The leather was soft and of a quality I'd expect in a shoe at this price. I wish they would have worked for my feet and 10 hour standing work days.

Very comfortable, cute, slipper-like shoe. True to size, but had to return because the arch support "bump" is further forward than my arch curve.

Love it. I got taos Samba a while back in red- it was a splurge but it was just the most gorgeous shoe I couldn't help it, and glad I did. This shoe has the same lower-half construction, so I knew what to expect in terms of fit and feel. It's not super soft or padded, but excellent quality and very comfortable. I love that it has the look of a heel, but really doesn't feel like a heel and only adds a bit more an an inch of height. Being a tall woman (6 ft), this is important to me. I bought a similar pair to this a while back, wanting this same feminine black oxford look for slightly dressy occasions, versatile to wear with almost anything-- and that pair, although also adorable, just had too much of a heel to be practical and I don't wear them often. These I can walk in comfortably, my feet don't hurt at the end of the day, and I don't feel like I'm towering over people. Much more practical and still super cute and dressy. Hooray! Worth the investment.
