Blue Croc Rocks June 19, 2012
Reviewer: Peg from Albany, NY
Shoe Size: Felt half size larger than marked Shoe Width: Felt wider than marked I am pretty happy with this sandal. My orthotics guy recommended it. There are a few minor issues for me: (1) The shoe squeaked like crazy for a few days but gratefully stopped just when everyone at work was about to ban me from wearing them at the office! (2) The velcro heel back strap is too long and the extra length rubs against my opposite ankle. I am thinking of having a shoe repair place fix that for me. (3) I regret ordering the wide size. I had to do this since my orthotic was made to fit a wide show. But I'm not using the full orthotic so I could have gotten away with a normal width. My foot looks a bit lost in there.One other note for orthotics wearers: I prefer wearing these with my half orthotics which allows me to keep the manaufacturers shoe bed intact. To use with my full orthotic I had to remove the entire bed which is what these are designed for, but then you lose out on the comfort of the cork and memory foam. So if you don't have a half size orthotic, you may not like these as much as I do.

Shoe Size: Felt true to size Shoe Width: Felt true to width Love the color and look. A little unsure as to the width and how it fit my foot. I wore around the house for about two weeks and finally think it will work. I have never spent this much for a pair and shoes before so I wanted a great fit. Will look at more shoes in this line.

Sandal with support September 09, 2011
Reviewer: Pat from South Carolina
Shoe Width: Felt true to width Having foot disorders that require the use of orthotics and a shoe with good support, finding sandals is very difficult. This shoe has adjustable velcro straps and a footbed that allows for orthotic insertion. It makes fitting difficult feet like mine much easier.

Straps Not Very Comfortable August 12, 2011
Reviewer: Nancy from Arizona
Shoe Size: Felt true to size Shoe Width: Felt true to width For being orthotic sandals, the straps were quite uncomfortable and dug into my skin, especially the strap by the ankle. This strap wasn't angled right to fit that part of the foot. No padding on the straps either. Had to return.

Only sandal I can wear July 21, 2011
Reviewer: Jamary from Northern Kentucky
Shoe Size: Felt true to size Shoe Width: Felt true to width I must wear an orthropedic insert in my shoes. I have a wide foot and finding a shoe to fit my foot and inserts has been a challenge. I have always had to wear gym shoes. Finding this sandals which has removable insoles so I can fit my inserts was great. At last, I can wear a sandal. Everything about this sandal fits my needs-- removable inserts, adjustable straps, comfortable and nice looking to wear almost anywhere. In fact, I like it so much I ordered another pair.
