I love these, but they may run a bit large in my usual size of 9.5. I'm exchanging for a 9 in case they fit better. Nicely padded, soft leather, and velcro opening, not an active buckle. Yay! I love velcro -- and it lies flat against my ankle, isn't bulky at all. Here's hoping the smaller size works better.

I like the idea of these sandals. They were different than what I saw her out there. I thought the idea of having elastic type material that would hold the sandal closer to my foot would make it much more comfortable for walking. However, there are squares that hold the elastic design in place and they are scratchy and annoying. If you don't have fussy like I do... they might not bother you...for me I had to send them back!

I bought a pair of these at Famous Footwear in a size 7 and they didn't have memory foam. The 7 with the memory foam are too tight. Not sure if 7.5 will fit.

This shoe looks very cute on the foot. The material lends it an elegance and the cut is very flattering to the foot. Sadly, the back heel support on both JBU shoes I tried is so high, that it hits my lateral ankle. Granted, I have rather protuberant outside ankles, but I was unable to walk more than a few meters inside my house, because the leather rubbed them with every step. Sadly, I have to say, with my low and pointy ankles, JBU is not for me.

I love Jambus and these are a great pair. They ran a size small so order up a size. The toe area is a bit snug but the material is soft and squishy so I don't think it will cause any rubbing on my feet. My one concern is the strap area bc where the strap hits my ankle is a bit rough. I am willing to take that risk for such a cute and versatile shoe.

I plan to use these as "water shoes" and for hiking on my trip to Hawaii, so hopefully they work out! They have a very sturdy sole to them and great arch support. They have some antimicrobial properties too, so that's a nice added feature. My only complaint is that they have some weird white stuff on the dark rubber which is probably just leftover glue or something, but it doesn't really come off. I ordered a second pair and they were just as bad, if not worse than the first pair, but I'm keeping them anyway. They'll get muddy on some of our hikes so I figure it won't matter much, and maybe eventually it will come off. They look cute enough with a bathing suit or cover up and were the best option I found for what I need them for.

Too small. An 11 is more like a 10 or 10.5. Very cute, though.

I wanted black flats with the rubber toe like keens. All the keens fit me poorly and I found these. The shoe is like a black denim. They run against the back of my heel, but not too bad. I'm just happy I found some black-ish flats with the toe cap.

Cute, comfortable shoes. I ordered them in my regular size and they fit great. I have bunions and it's hard to find shoes that fit and look good and are comfortable. I own three pairs of JBU they are wonderful shoes. I highly recommend them.

These are perfect sporty shoes for everyday wear. I love the details, the rope knotting is really cute. I have bunions and it is hard to find a comfortable petite looking shoe. These are a keeper. I really like the purple/black.

Perfection!! I am a big Jambu fan and I decided to try the new JBU shoes. First off these shoes are beautiful!! I usually take 7.5 and these fit perfectly in my size. They also look pretty dressy for a sporty shoe and are very comfortable. I have bunions and it can be a challenge to find a good fitting petite looking shoe, these definitely fit the bill.

These are very cute and super comfortable. I hesitated to buy because they are faux leather and I prefer leather shoes, but the style won out and I ordered them. The material doesn't seem to be an issue once I have them on - they look great. I purchased them in black. The fit is probably about right. I often wear alegria, so the sizing was in line with that brand. I also measured my foot and the size suggested by the chart is also what I ordered. I may have been able to fit into a half size smaller, but I really don't like it when my toes hit the end of the shoe, so the size I purchased is right for me. They are not too big, either. These shoes are very soft with the memory foam type insole and they are very flexible with moderate arch support. Love them so far!

These felt fantastic right out of the box. Really pleased with the way they fit and with the height of the block heel. The style is nice enough that I am able to overlook the velcro closure (which isn't very visible so it's not so much of an issue anyhow). I haven't road-tested them yet, but they feel like the kind of shoes I could wear all day with a casual dress or jeans. Excited for summer!

Very light weight, super comfortable shoe. The straps hit in all the right places, and foot bed has great cushioning. The only thing I'd like is a black foot bed to hide dirt. If they had that, they'd be a straight up 5 out of 5 all the way.

I purchased the shoes for my daughter who is serving a church mission in Nicaragua. She initially took three pair of Jambus with her and has loved them! She walks 10 miles/day so it was time to replace the originals. I reordered the same size and paid a fortune to ship them to Nicaragua. I just heard from my daughter who received the shoes and both pair are too small!!! There is no way for her to get the shoes back to me so I am out a lot of money. So, order 1/2 size up on these shoes. Bottom line, great shoes, but they definitely run small.

These shoes are great. I wear them all summer, usually without socks. They start out feeling tight, but they loosen up the more you wear them.

This seems to be a reworking of the discontinued J-41 Abagail, but they made it less pretty and less comfortable. Please bring back the Abagail!
