Women's Cara Closed Toe Espadrilles
Very flattering, comfortable "heel" style
This is a very well-made, pretty & comfortable shoe. Yes, makes feet look dainty & provides decent arch support for those who don't love wearing heels. I've grown to love shboots, high heel slip-ons, and the newly designed Dansko Thea "heels" as a result. I am a smidge over a B width (right in the middle bet. a B & C), so I have to wear a shoe that is either just a little forgiving in the width or, if it runs narrow, I need a Wide. This shoe is very comfortable in that respect. I think anyone except someone with a very narrow foot would find it ok. I am a 7.5 in every other brand (sneakers and shoes) and this ran a little short for me, even though my foot slipped fully down into the toe box--so I am ordering the 8. I would say that I think I've had to order 8's at LE in the past. This style is great for those of us who would rather hide our toes/nails for whatever reason--plenty of us over the age of 40 with toe issues. Thanks for this design, LE. Now please think about giving us the same shoe in the flat or lower style in addition to this dressy one. It would be a cute little Mary Jane espadrille that would be even easier to wear all day long!!! Love this shoe with jeans, capris, skirts and sundresses, though.

As I am always looking for a closed toe summer sandal that's still stylish, this shoe fit the bill perfectly. I bought the two basics; black and linen, and they will be my go-to shoes for most of my dressier outfits this summer, both at work and on weekends. The quality of this shoe is very good in my opinion, and I really like that the ankle strap is leather and not fabric like on several other espadrilles I've had throughout the years. I would like to see Lands' End offer more closed in sandals in other pretty and current styles, because not everyone wants to show off their toes just because it is summer!

Great wedge espadrille
I bought these in navy and wore them very early on in Spring, when my feet were just out of socks and boots. Normally, it takes a few weeks for my feet to "toughen up" and feel comfortable bare in heeled sandals, but these were a dream to wear! Just the right amount of wedge for my small frame (5'2) and to wear for frequent walking.

REALLY CUTE STYLE AND COMFORTABLE
I wear a size 8 and these are true to size and fit perfectly! They are very comfortable and go with so many things in my wardrobe that it's difficult not to wear them everyday! I bought the black ones.

I love the look of these shoes, and was really hoping they'd be more comfortable. I wore them for a few hours despite the discomfort when I initially put them on, hoping they'd stretch a bit over the toes. Unfortunately, they just dug deeper into both sides of my feet and the pain became unbearable. I am returning them today! The cut does not cover enough of the toes, cuts right across the bones and puts pressure. Hopefully in the future they will fix the problem because everything else about them is good!

I am absolutely in love with these shoes. The fit was spot on for my usual size. They are incredibly comfortable; I wear them at work all day. I bought the black to wear during spring/summer with black capris for work. I'm ordering a 2nd pair in nude to wear with summery dresses. I already know I won't be able to part with them come fall!

I have a foot that fits nearly any shoe--except this one, apparently! I wore these shoes to work today for the first time, and within two hours I had to take them off for the rest of the day and put on a pair of flats I happened to have in the office. They dug deeply into the widest part of my foot on both sides (and on both feet). When I took them off, another person couldn't believe how red deep the depression was where the shoe was cutting into my foot. Seriously, I rarely have trouble fitting into shoes in my size, but these were terrible. I doubt I'll put them back on unless I can stretch this part out.

These shoes are a great fit. I ordered a 9 after reading the reviews. I have wider feet than normal but not wide width shoes wide. These fit just right. The straps were soft leather and the buckles didn't rub. I did end up with blisters but I will take responsibility for those. I wore these shoes for several days straight on a trip. These wore well, they still look good and I received a lot of compliments on them. I will break them out again for church and another upcoming trip.

I got these because my work doesn't allow open-toe shoes. These are basically strappy sandals that just happen to cover my toes. The shape is beautiful and the ankle strap is very flattering. I'm starting to not feel surprised anymore when LE has very on-trend, yet classic, clothes and accessories. I got the black to match the clothes I'll wear with them. I wanted to like the two brighter colored versions but the pattern just isn't quite right, somehow. They seem pretty comfy, though I haven't spent the day in them yet. I'm good on heels so these don't feel high at all but they may feel that way for someone who never wears heels.

Happy Feet! :)
These shoes are so comfortable I wore them two days in a row. I wear either a 7 1/2 or an 8, the 7 1/2 fit perfect. Can't wait to order in another color. And the best part, my feet look teeney weeney in these shoes. Love them
