I just received these today and I'm absolutely thrilled with them. I ordered the orange and the colors are an exact match to the picture online. I'm a size 6.5, and ordered them in a 37 and they fit PERFECTLY. I have been wearing them around the house for the past two hours and they are surprisingly comfortable. The first strap is connected to the shoe with a bit of stretch, so there is just enough give, and the leather is soft. I feel like this is a versatile shoe that I will be wearing a lot this summer - they'll look great with shorts and a t-shirt or with a linen dress.

I was on the fence about getting these, but I'm so glad I did! I got them in orange and they are drop dead gorgeous. I get a ton of compliments on them. I wear a true size 10 and I got them in size 41, perfect fit.

Great Summer Flats
I bought these in the orange color and instantly loved upon arrival. I think they fit true to size, unlike some other reviewers, however, you do have to take a minute to arrange the straps on each foot after slipping them on, not an instant insert foot and go shoe. I walked far in them the first time wearing them with no issues, no breaking in period as with some other shoes. Think the orange/sparklyness will make all my summer outfits pop with dresses, shorts, crops, whatever.
Ordered these in the tan and blue color-ways. Both were great but the tan was the winner -- made my legs look super-long and slender. The strappy bits that run across your insole go right up to where your foot meets your leg and give the sandal a really cool vibe -- def. not your mother's sandal. Great quality and if you're into the scent of leather (I am), they smell like walking into a tack room.
The blue ones were cute but the shades of blue were a little "dusty". Plus they didn't have the same leg-lengthening effect as the tan.
I'll wear the tan ones with everything -- shorts, cropped jeans, maxis. Totally TTS. I got them at a 20% discount but would have gotten them at full price as great versatile sandals like these are hard to find.

I ordered these shoes in the blue scheme, and loved the feel of the soft leather and cushy soles. I did have to return them for a size up … normally a size 7, but needed a size 8! Very comfortable and very versatile. Most often, blue shoes give a grandma or Elvis vibe, yet these are effortlessly cool.
Two thumbs up.

Comfy and Unique
Total statement piece. Very comfortable. Runs small for a 6 which was perfect for me (I'm a 5.5).
I agree with the last reviewer that it's not necessary to order a size up. I bought my usual size and it fits like a glove. Very comfortable. And even though the brand isn't Schuler and Sons, the quality seems great to me. The shoes have a very soft cushion bed and the leather is great quality. I'm happy with my purchase.

NEW SPRING FAVORITE
Just received these last Friday. Wore them all weekend and I can already tell they're going to be my go-to summer shoe!
So soft and easy to wear (so glad there's a back zip!)
I definitely recommend these for anyone who wants to wear the gladiator trend without being too aggressive.
I agree with a previous review that this is a perfect sandal--goes with everything and the mini rubber wedge makes them so comfortable. Also love the touch of summery cork on the sole. I am a size 8 and ordered both the Euro 38 and the Euro 39. The Euro 38 was too short and too tight--the Euro 39 is definitely the better fit. Some U.S. to Euro shoe conversion charts list a Euro 38 as fitting a US 8-8.5, but I usually find that a Euro 39 is a better fit for me. Looking forward to wearing these the entire summer. Excellent purchase and highly recommended!

PERFECT LITTLE SANDAL
What an easy sandal to wear. I got them last week and basically haven't taken them off!
They go with everything and are SO comfortable. I love the little rubber wedge.......so light weight & soft!
If only they came in another color or two. Definitely recommended!
These shoes are so cute!! they are just as pictured. I get so many compliments on them. Very fashion forward. They sold out pretty quickly and now they are back. The only complaint is that the front strap rubs just below my big toe nail, right at the sensitive spot and the leather is not so soft. I had blisters. I don't care though. the shoe is so great that I bought liquid bandaid and now the problem is solved.
I need to get my feet used to them because I walk quite a bit and I never wear sandals that have anything that go between my toes. Obviously, these go between your toes. My feet are a little bruised, but I am confident things will turn around. I love them otherwise. They fit perfectly, they are insanely comfortable on the bottom, they;re cute, just shiny enough (you cant really tell that they are shiny in the pictures) to be edgy and not look the least bit frumpy.
For women, sandals aren?t just open toed shoes. They?re the compliment to maxi dresses, the heel poking out of your flared jeans, and the elegant final touch to your little black dress. Leather sandals are as versatile as they are comfortable and will make a great addition to your shoe rack. The Franzen Sandals by Dolci Vita are the perfect example of the simplicity of sandals combined with the edgy style of this progressive designer. Pair it with a maxi dress and a denim jacket for an excellent ensemble for the changing seasons. Or if you?re looking for more embellished sandals, check out the Adieu Sandals for a light-hearted but unique design that will stand out in the best way possible. If you?re looking for some fun new footwear that goes with just about everything, these sandals are the best.
