Proportions seem off
The proportions of this sandal are just off to me. While they are beautiful and certainly comfortable, I think the band falls too high up on the foot, too close to the toes, giving them a strange look overall. It looks great in the photo. It's difficult to describe, but when they are on there is something off about their proportion to the foot.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Velcro makes sounds when i move
The shoes are undoubtedly gorgeous and edgy. My issue was with the velcro strap. It looked strange not to strap them too big, but when you strap them too snug, they make a scratchy sound like the velcro is attempting to give under the pressure of walking. The leather is great quality. Recommend if the velcro doesn't bother you.

I'm a 6.5 but even the 6 was big!
These shoes are AMAZINGLY soft and supple and well-made. I only wish they fit! Unfortunately, the smallest size is a 6, but the 6 was even too large. If they came in a 5.5, I would certainly order them and make them mine. These shoes are spectacular and would be the perfect casual springtime flat.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Painful!
I didn't want to risk walking too much in them in the house before returning, but I was curious whether I could break them in. But I honestly don't think it was just a matter of needing to break them in. The leather is amazing quality and smells wonderful. The shoe is beautifully made. But I think the issue is with the design. The bottom portion cuts off halfway up the foot and it becomes extremely painful there even after two minutes walking around in my home. If they weren't so expensive, I may keep them for outings where I'm not on my feet a lot. But I was afraid of keeping them and having them become that beautiful pair of shoes you avoid wearing because they hurt so much when you take them out.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Order 1/2 size down
I guess I have smaller ankles, but the upper part of the sandal was too big. The leather isn't terribly high quality, too. Has that pebble look to it. The buckle is beautiful but awkward and big. You may want to order half a size down.
Sizing: Larger than Expected
