Rated 5 out of 5 by MKNC style + comfort = winner
I bought these in black last year in a size 8. My closed shoe size is 8.5 to 9 so I would say these run large as an 8 is perfect on me. I just wish the color addition this year had been an off-white or cream, because I would have bought another pair in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dancer214 Nice looking!
I'm always looking for attractive shoes/sandles that are comfortable, and these are perfect. The corkbed is soft and feels nice on the feet. I love the multicolored straps-makes them versatile. I wore them all day (brand new) w/o problems. The adjustable straps helps the fit. I'm usually an 81/2 or 9, but the 8 was perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luvshoes68 Classy, comfortable, but too long
I ordered size 8 M, my usual size. The sandals were an inch too long. Exchanged them for size 7 ( worried they would be too short) as there are no half sizes. Perfect fit.

These sandals were so comfortable, until the strap snapped off while I was walking downstairs. I am so disappointed that they didn't even make it through the summer. I've worn them maybe twice a week for about 6 weeks until they broke.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sugarbeet cork sandals
These sandals are very nice. While I wear a half size (8 1/2), size nine fits fairly well...just a bit long, but after a day of wearing the fit is better gratis some foot swelling. I wish these came in straight brown as well as white; however I do like the two I purchased despite of the price which is a bit high. I think the leather and cork are a fine combo as well as comfortable even after a days' wearing.

The sandals are attractive and very comfortable - dressed up or down. My teenaged granddaughter really liked them, too, so I bought her a pair and she really likes the comfort and the style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanGirl321 I love these sandals!
These shoes are very stylish and comfortable. After reading the online reviews, I decided to order one size down from my normal size. When they arrived, I found them to be slightly too small. I then reordered in my usual size and found the fit to be perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lipiti Comfortable and stylish, though slightly wide
I loved the photo of these sandals and ordered a pair recently. It is well made, light weight, with soft leather straps and leather-lined foot bed. I wish that I could tighten the front straps just a bit, maybe a half an inch, and it would be perfect. I usually wear a 7M, but with this pair I'm wondering if a 6.5M would have fit better. I would have returned it for an exchange, except I was impatient and wanted to start wearing it, so I will put up with the slightly off fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LateBloom Just threw out my other pairs of black sandals!
Just received these, and after trying them on, I pitched two other pairs of strappy flat black sandals I've been avoiding all summer. I was THAT pleased with the LL Bean ones! They are very, very comfortable, yet the slight heel and narrow straps will allow them to adapt to semi-formal wear as well. I thought the fit was on the roomy side; I typically try on both an 8 and 8 1/2 when buying new shoes and more often go for the larger size. In this case, the 8 was plenty big, with some room at the toe. (So I'd suggest going small, if you're between sizes and at all in doubt.) I especially appreciate the padding on the strap that goes behind the heel, as I sometimes get heel blisters when wearing new shoes, especially in the summertime when feet tend to swell. I could immediately tell that there's no way these sandals will pinch or prove uncomfortable. I wish they were offered in a tan that's lighter than the brown currently offered--then all of my summer sandal needs would be met.

Rated 5 out of 5 by grandmaincali Great for hot weather
I was looking for comfortable sandals that I could wear in hot weather. The cork sandals I ordered fit well and will serve me well for this summer and perhaps for future summers too.
