Jerusalem Sandals Reviews

Lovely sandals, great color, comfortable. Sadly, they slide forward when I lift my foot causing the front edge to hit the pavement. I have tripped forward several times. This has damaged the sandals already and I've worn them a few times in the first week. I wonder if a smaller size would make a difference and leave me a satisfied customer? I cannot recommend them if this slide, trip, damaged front edge is part of the smooth leather footbed. Sadly, I won't know. I would share the photos of them if that was allowed through the Zappos app.

They turned my feet a charcoal black color! They feel good, they look good - except for the fact that the leather wraps squeak as you walk - but after wearing them several times they just would not stop turning my feet - especially the bottoms - dark charcoal black. It was actually quite embarrassing going to the beach so I had to stand in the water for 5 min and scrub each foot because the color penetrated so deep. I even tried wiping them with a damp towel thinking that at some point they would have to leach color - wrong. Thanks to Zappo's world class customer service I am still able to return these and am doing it with great pleasure. Especially at this price I recommend you look at a different brand. I am never purchasing anything from Jerusalem Sandal's again.

These take forever to break in but it's worth it! I wore them around the house a lot, even with socks on when it was cold. I got them wet several times (damp, not soaked)and wore them until they dried, which left a few small spots in the color but helped soften up the leather quite a bit, and form to the shape of my foot. They are a million times more comfortable now than when I first got them but my feet do get a little sore after wearing them all day. I usually wear a 7 in sandals and the 38 fit perfectly.

They squeak! Toe strap is tight.

I love these sandals. They are a dressier alternative to a beach sandal (flip flip). I've worn them with khakis and jeans and they fit the bill beautifully. My only (minor!) complaint is that they do take some breaking in. I had to wear them around the house a bit before facing an entire day. The toe loop that distinguishes them so nicely also takes some getting used to between the toes. If you are thinking about adding these to your wardrobe, do it; a little time schlepping around the house and you will be glad you did. At least I am!

I really liked the style and they were comfortable on but the toe strap didn't stay between my toes, my foot slipped down the shoe when I walked around in them. The color was a beautiful rich brown.

I loved the rich brown color (as it is difficult to find) but had to return them because the straps between my toes was too uncomfortable! It's a shame the leather was not softer.

Well-made, attractive slip-on sandals. I bought them as a more presentable alternative to flip-flops for summer. Someone else wrote about the strap rubbing a bunion--I had the same experience. It didn't get to the point of a blister or breaking the skin. Of course I didn't discover it until I had worn them too much to return. They DO stretch out, though, as I hoped they would. I wore them around the house and for shorter periods until they became more comfortable, because it really is a cute sandal that fills a need in my wardrobe. I have since worn them all day without great discomfort. I would not wear them to do a lot of walking, like on vacation. Also, as others have noted, the black leather dye does transfer to the skin and toenails. I think it's par for the course with this style of leather sandals, which have a natural, handmade, somewhat earthy vibe. There are not a lot of shoes like this at this price point. So, overall, not perfect but worth trying for the price.

Good looking but not at all comfortable. Leather is very stiff and cuts my bunion. And soles squeak on floor surfaces.

Thrilled to have finally found the gray sandal I've been searching for. Very cute and comfortable. My first pair of Jerusalem sandals but I think I'll be back to look at more.

These fit good and are made to last. The leather is a little tough to "wear-in". But I think once I get past that I will be even more happy.

These shoes looked great but my foot slid right through too far forward, not for thinner feet

These shoes were very beautiful, elegant, and had that "earthy" style that I love. However, when I tried them on, my foot slid forward too far on the left shoe when I walked, causing my toes to hang over the front edge. It wasn't, that I needed a bigger size, because there was plenty of room in the back. If only the shoe had a bigger front area, in front of the toe loop to accommodate the length of my toes, I would have kept these!

I wanted to like these as a casual walking sandal but they didn't quite work for my foot, which is somewhat wide. They were comfortable at first, but I could tell they were going to cut/pinch after walking. Someone with a narrower foot might do well. I wanted them for a walking sandal and they are fairly cushion-y on the bottom, so I was disappointed that they didn't work. I am a true 9 and the 40/9 was good lengthwise. They just cut in the wrong places.

Loved the look of these, and so wanted them to work. I tried a pair in black, and the leather tanning was actually nice and even throughout (another pair of brown Jerusalem sandals I tried had tanning that made them look a little cheap). The footbed was super comfortable, they felt true to size. The leather was a bit stiff and thick, and I'm not sure how much that would get better with "break in" time. My issue with these, though, was that the toe loop was very snug and the rest of the straps over my arch were very loose, contributing to a poor fit. My heel slid around the sandal because the straps weren't tight enough to fit over my arch properly and keep my feet in place. Sadly, these had to go back.

I really wanted to love these sandals. The straps fit perfectly around my feet (unlike another pair of Jerusalem sandals I tried- Ariel- where the straps were too long in places). The footbed was very comfortable. The leather tanning, as I read another reviewer state, was a little off; not as rich looking as the pictures. My issue with them, though, is the leather itself. I get that they are handmade sandals; I have several pairs of wonderful Horween leather handmade shoes because my feet are so difficult to fit.......but the leather all of the Jerusalem sandals I tried were made out of was just too thick and too stiff. There was way too much material between my toes for these to be comfortable, and I'm not sure if any break in time could lessen that feeling. Sadly, they had to go back. Looked great on, though.

Just received these last night. I am very pleased with the overall quality of the sandal. The leather is quite thick, and they may need a bit of breaking in time. I have been wearing them around the house for two hours and already they have softened considerably. I will not attempt a day out with them until a few more hours have passed. I personally love the style but I gave these a four star rating because they do have something of a biblical look to them. I love a slip on, but so often as you walk there is a slapping sound, these don't do that! Yea! Overall I would recommend these sandals.

I like the style. However, the rubber soles are too thin for walking around a city any distance. Also, the front part of the sandals were oddly and disproportionately long. It was amusing but also made the sandals not usable without tripping. I needed to have a local shoe repair trim the front lengths. Despite these two things, I like the style, and now that they have been re-shaped at the front, will wear them for modest use. I would recommend: (a) thicker soles ; and (b) more care given to design of the contour of the sole, near the front of the sandal. If J sandals take care of these two things, there is potential for producing a great sandal.

I love everything about these sandals! The dark brown is quite lovely! They felt true to size; the straps didn't rub me the wrong way; the leather was pliable. Very pleased with my purchase!
