Women's Whitney Low Platform Ankle Tie Espadrille Shoes
I'm usually a 10, and these were huge! Not necessarily too long, but the uppers were gapping horribly. Also, there is a seam that goes around the upper edge of the back, and it rubs really bad on the backs of my ankles. Just walking around my house for 5 minutes they rubbed me raw! I tried putting extra insoles in these to make them fit better and that helped, but then the seam in the back rubbed even worse! I also tried taking the ties off and wearing these as slip-ons but that didn't help the chafing either. I tried various combinations of insoles and ties/no ties but couldn't make these comfortable. :o( Sadly will be sending these back!

I ordered these in both the coral and the blue. Really fun shoes! I don't notice the back tabs that hold the lacings as some reviewers did. Since they are made of fabric, each shoe feels just a bit different. I have a big toe that is a smidge longer, but the fabric will form to it.

Love these espadrilles!
These shoes were exactly what I was looking for. They fit my feet comfortably. I have purchased three additional pairs. Thank you, Lands End, for carrying this product. You made my summer!

Got two pair of these---love the colors!
Adorable canvas shoes for summer and right on trend. I have worn them with and without the ankle
ties and these shoes fit well. If I am walking in them for any length of time, I have slipped in a pair
of gel insoles for comfort.

Love, love, love!
I have been hunting for a shoe just like this for years. I purchased the white and am begging LE for solid navy - please! The fit is perfect, I wear a 9 which is what I purchased. Excellent comfort from day one. I wear them with the ties, which color match just fine. I receive numerous compliments every time I wear them. I did Scothguard them and have had no trouble with marks. Great quality as well. I will take them on my trip to New York City, which requires LOTS of walking, because they are so comfortable AND super cute! Spot on LE, feel free to ship a pair in each color to me! LOL!

cute and comfortable, but not made for rainy days
I had to return these, because I wore them outside after it had rained, and the soles soaked up the rain from the pavement, so my feet were soaking wet.

I purchased both striped pairs and would have gotten the white however they were sold out . I wear a 7.5 and bought a 7 a little snug but, after wearing around the house for a few hours they were fine. I will say they did rub against my heel. The canvas is a tad stiff so this just comes with the territory with this type of shoe. I have been wearing this type of shoes for 40 years they are my favorite summer shoe, the more colours I can find the better. I managed to get these on sale so what could be better? Please continue to make these again next season, in more interesting patterns and colours!

The almost perfect espadrille
Love them, very comfortable... took the ankle strap off almost immediately, but they are very good without the strap. I recommend them.

These shoes are not for those with high insteps. Having said that, let me add that I have them in both the orange/pink and teal/purple stripes, and I love them. The rope bottoms give one a little foot massage as one walks :o) The length is bang-on true to size. I don't use the ties (aged circulation) but wish I could. Very glad to have them, and also very glad I waited for the sale price.
