Women's Pippa Suede Braided Espadrilles
Comfortable and cute!
I have a narrow foot but a bunion (!) so finding shoes that fit can be a challenge. I read the other posts indicating the shoes run narrow but I got the size medium, anyway. These espadrilles felt great right out of the box. I think the braided strap will give enough to ensure comfort all day long. Like others, I appreciate the small heel ... high enough to look nice with longer hemlines and yet not make me feel like I'm towering on stilts (I'm 5'7") I'm so impressed I'm going to buy more pairs in different colors (and if Lands End only had navy, I'd be in heaven).

Pleased with comfortable and quite attractive espadrilles.
My feet are wide, and it is sometimes hard to find comfortable shoes. I ordered a 9H wide and was pleasantly surprised to find that these espadrilles are both stylish and comfortable!

cute and comfy
Hi, these look even cuter in person and are super comfortable. The lining of the shoe is padded and really soft. The heel is just the right height for me-not too tall and not too short. I got them in the cantelope color and am coming back to get them in black too. I am in between a 5 1/2 and a 6 and the 6 fit great. Hope that helps!

I never buy shoes online. I have very very wide feet. I ordered these and they fit great and look good. I just wish I could get them in red.

The shoes fit perfectly and are true to size. May buy another color if I get a 30% off coupon.

Love these sandals!
This is my third pair of sandals in this style.
The wedge is not too high but gives a nice look and style to the sandal.
I normally wear a size 10 but often have to order an 11 for sandals and the 11 fits nicely.

I am delighted with my first pair of Pippa sandals---enough that I am already considering a second pair in another color. My customary size fits perfectly; the heel height is just right for comfort; the style flatters my feet. While I haven't had time to gauge their durability, they seem to be sturdily constructed. All together, a purchase I'm glad to have made!

I have wide feet and shoes with a strap across the toes are hard to fit. The wide size is perfect, just like in all other LE shoes I've bought. Comfortable enough for work, to be on my feet several hours at a time. Not too high, just perfect.

2 pluses; 3 minuses
I ordered 2 pairs because they seemed attractive, while not being awkwardly high, and looked like they would be comfortable for daily wear. Good points: (1) The shoes fit my size perfectly and were even wide enough at the toe, which is not always the case in a medium-sized shoe. (2) They are attractive looking on my feet and the strap and woven section are soft and comfortable on the top of the foot, unlike many sandals that cut into your feet on the top. The negatives: (1) The shoes are heavy and not the least bit flexible--walking in them is like having a rock attached to the bottom of your foot. I want an attractive shoe that is also a healthy option--one that lets me "use"--as in bend--my foot naturally as I walk. In fact, one of the qualities that made the original espadrilles popular is their flexibility. (2) Although the photos make it look like the shoes have really good arch support, they don't! The supposed arch support is too narrow for any foot, and it doesn't meet your arch. I want a shoe with an appropriately molded arch because I have a high arch, and prefer a shoe that conforms to the shape of my foot, not one that feels like I've tied on a flat board to walk around in. (3) I have a narrow foot (except at the toe area), so I don't need a wide center or heel, but while my foot fit the heel area nicely, the actual center footbed of the shoe is too narrow--1-1/2 inches across--and makes you foot feel like it is balancing on a heel that is higher than its actual 2 inches (also refer to negative point # 2). I don't know if I'll keep them--while attractive on your foot, they aren't a comfortable shoe for walking beyond a block or 2. Overall, I'm disappointed. I wanted an attractive shoe that I could walk in with ease. Try again, Land's End--with this shoe, you've got it only half right!
