"I absolutely love these shoes. I could not find them anywhere else. They are so cute and comfy. Perfect for walking long distances. I purchased them for my New York trip, and they definitely came in handy for all the walking that I did. Not to mention I received many compliments."

"These shoes are very comfortable. I wore them walking around NYC all day and my feet didn't hurt! Not to mention that they're super cute and versatile. They do run larger, so I would recommend sizing down at least a half size or even one full size."

"I needed to upgrade my black converse, so I decided to switch to these. Best decision ever! Super comfortable—didn't have to break them in at all. Wore them all day in the city (lots of walking)."

"A comfy and easy slip-on sneaker. Trendy but definitely functional; they're really great for walking a lot. I got them in gray and they go with pretty much anything."

"These shoes fit very well—they are also very comfortable to walk in. I had walked through two theme parks in these and these shoes really came in handy. They are both stylish and comfortable. 10/10 recommend these shoes."


"Great shoes for summer—love the bright metallic colors and very comfortable for running around town with kids. Love them!"

"This Munro Beth Slide is the most comfortable shoe I've ever owned. Comfort from morning to night. I loved it so much I now have it in two colors. Very stylish as well, and pairs with everything from skirts to pants to shorts."

"This is one of the most comfortable pairs of sandals I've ever worn. It has a slightly padded footbed. I suggest sizing up a 1/2 size. I typically wear a 6 1/2, but I purchased a 7, and they fit perfectly."

"Paul Green is one of my favorite shoe designers. These shoes are so comfortable I could walk miles in them. I ordered them in black and ocean blue."

"Very nice and comfortable sandals. They look great. I bought dark blue. The blue is very dark, almost black, but for me, that's okay. The leather is soft and pliable, but the shoe holds the foot well."

"Love these sandals! I wore them this evening for the first time today. Comfortable from the moment I put them on my feet! They look lovely and hug the foot close, so no sliding."


"Extremely comfortable with some arch support. I have already walked about 1/2 day in these with no break-in required and I have wide feet."

"I bought the brown. They're a perfect fit, and it's easy to get up and go in them with the easy lace. Extremely comfortable right out of the box. These are stylish and a great walking shoe for travel."

"I love my new Mabel sandals, and they put all my other sandals to shame. The Mabel has the perfect heel height, so they are supportive and flattering. They bend easily and have so much cushion that I was able to stand in them all night while out with my friends downtown."

"I bought these sandals to use on a 10-day tour of Israel and wore them all day, every day. They were perfect! I walked, hiked, and even got them wet on a few occasions, and they were so comfortable the whole time! One day, in particular, near the end of our tour after a long day of walking, people began to complain that their feet hurt, and one guy said he was shocked I walked the whole day in sandals, but my feet felt great! Love these sandals!"
