Women's Cara Closed Toe Espadrilles
These shoes (navy/brown) are wonderful! Cute and stylish! Love the contrasting colors! Look great with pants, capris, and skirts!!! Soooooo comfortable! Can wear all day (I am up and walking the whole time)--no problem! Lots of compliments! Fit and size were right on! High quality--wears well!

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.

LOVE these shoes!
I love wearing black and brown together so these shoes were a perfect addition to my wardrobe. (I ordered the black ones.) I have narrow feet and wear a 6.5 or 7 and I ordered the 7 and they fit perfectly. They are some of the most comfortable shoes I own! Even wearing them all day long they are super comfy and very easy to walk in (and I have little kids so that's very important to me!)

Very comfortable and practical
I was a little leery buying this shoe, as I don't wear high heals and was worried how they would fit. These are very comfortable and not at all too steep to wear comfortably for hours. Very well made. There is only one tiny thing that I don't care for, and that is that the toe box is cut too short - meaning that you can see my toe "cleavage" instead of covering the entire toe. I don't have long toes, but they don't completely cover them.

I won't lie. These definitely required breaking in, but I loved them so much I really persevered! Now they are perfect. I even spilled coffee on them and quickly surface washed them and put them out in the sun to dry and they survived. That said, I bought a back up pair on sale... which are far more comfortable straight out of the box, so perhaps they are a little inconsistent. I really suggest them for when you want to look summer-y but haven't had a pedicure!

I have tried to wear so many styles of espadrilles and they all looked bad on my foot....but not these! I got all of the pairs that I bought on sale, so added sweetness. As for the toe cleavage, I actually kind of like it and am wondering who else can really see it besides me? Whatever. I really like these and they are very comfortable and wearable for me.

Pretty but painful
I loved the look of these shoes and wanted so badly for them to work but after wearing them for about an hour, I got bad blisters on both feet where the edge of the toe box part of the shoe met and rubbed against my foot. They hit right on the bone/joint of my big toe. It simply does not come up onto the foot high enough - at least not for my feet. Other than that issue, they were comfortable - a good height, comfortable inside, comfortable ankle strap with plenty of give.

Agree with others
Toe cleavage unattractive. Also toe box way too stiff, not enough give so front of my foot really didn't fit comfortably and sort of bulged around the toe box. Had to be returned and I found a similar style that fit better and had no toe cleavage at a department store.

cute and light
I ordered sizes 6 and 7, I would love the 6 because it's nicely fitted on the strap and length, but the toe area was a bit tight. Then, I got the 7, which was nice for the toe box, but then it was rubbing the sides of my foot , also it's a 1/2 inch longer. In most cases, Im 6.5 inches shoe size. I really love this sandal, very cute and so light. I love the combination of the brown and neutral color (I would'nt mind the prints either), but it's not for my kind of feet. I'm disappointed that I have to return this shoes, maybe LE can make 1/2 sizes, change the toe box a bit and maybe use a softer material so it doesn't hurt as it rub off the skin.
