"Most reviews say order half size up, but i went ahead and ordered my true size and it fits perfect! I love the color and I love the platform! Gives me a little bit of height boost! It's not heavy! I love it." — chachacha

"I love these because they are light rubber, monochrome black, a bit slimmer than regular Birkenstocks, and I can wear them near or in the water unlike regular ones!" — Abakh

"Super comfortable and classic. Love them." — ColinTaylor

"These are the perfect light shoes for Spring. I am between a 6.5 and 7 and 7 felt the best. I would recommend waterproofing the shoe to keep them in the best condition. Very comfortable to walk in and they go with everything. There was no breaking in necessary. People compliment them all the time." — HRLady

"Everyday, comfortable shoes. Love them, but order half a size larger especially if you have wide feet and they do end up stretching." — Leena

"Super excited to wear these! They are super comfortable (to my surprise), unique, and minimalist. I am a size 9 usually and they fit TTS. The straps were comfortable, and the shape of the shoe is trendy and interesting. I really hope that the straps hold up as I'm loving them!" — tswiss

"A must have! Casual but stylish, love my Chucks!" — Sandra212

"Very comfortable and true to size. Looks very good in person." — Kassidy

"I love these shoes! Before I ordered them I'd always heard that supergas run big... They do! I'm glad I ordered a size down. Even the full size down is nowhere near 'snug' on my foot, but they are comfortably loose so I am keeping them. You wouldn't want to walk around a city in these but they are comfortable for casual strolling! I do have narrow feet." — kepare20
