I was cautious as I read the other reviews of this sandal. The black suede is softer than the brown leather... but I really like it! It is like butter soft on your feet. The support is not obvious like in some shoes. It feels like you have nothing on your feet. Out of the box with no blisters or complaints. Yes, order a size up and they are not wide.... so be careful when you order. But I do love them and will more than likely order the brown ones too!
