Women's Marissa Flat Elastic Sandals
Not what I expected from Land's End
The sandal design is very pretty, but the first pair I ordered in my regular size was far too narrow and my feet kept sliding off the side. I returned them and ordered a half size larger but when they arrived two days ago I discovered that although it was a bit better the shoe stil had a tendency to slide to the side, causing my foot to slip off the shoe again. I don't know if this is a design flaw or if the shoe has just been sized too narrow, but I have the feeling I'm going to have to return these also. I hate to do it because I really like the design, but if I can't keep them on my feet there isn't much point in keeping them, is there?

Gorgeous red! Love it.
I loved the sandal, but sadly had to return it, because the strap hit my bunion and was uncomfortable.

unattractive and no support
These looked very sloppy on - my foot wiggled around in the elastic - and there is no support form the sole.

I sent it back but might fit someone else
Nice style; perfect packaging; and, quality materials used but the strap over the toe area does not stretch and I could not get my foot into the shoe even though I ordered a larger size than usual.

Excellent fit and comfortable to wear.
These sandals were exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a flat slip-on summer sandal that I could wear while driving. I didn't want thong sandals, as I wanted to be able to wear stockings occasionally. And I didn't want them to be loose at the back like flip flops, as I believe that can be dangerous when driving. And I wanted flat shoes, as I find that most comfortable. You wouldn't think these criteria would be so hard to meet, but such shoes are almost impossible to find. I was very happy to find them at Land's End. And they felt perfect from the first moment I put them on.

Elastic is too tight.
I really, really wanted to love these shoes. I desperately tried to get them to work, but they don't. They are super cute on, but way too tight. I don't have wide feet or anything. The length of the footbed is perfect, and the shoe had a comfortable heel, but the elastic is way too tight. I had to send them back.

Cute but not worth full price!
Cute sandals, fit well, the elastic is not too tight but tight enough to hold the shoe snug so it doesn't flop all over while walking. They are a classic design and go with most everything. However, after the 1st wearing where the fabric insole meets the "leather" toe part started to fray and I could feel it under my feet. In addition after the first wearing the "leather" tip started to show dings and marks making it look like I had been hiking in them. I think I can cover the marks with a black Sharpie pen. I only wore these to work where the floors are carpeted. Don't want to know how they'd hold up while walking on concrete. Again, these are really cute but not very well made and certainly not worth full price. I got mine on sale with free shipping so I don't feel too bad.

Nice sandal, though be aware the width is narrow.
Got this sandal in navy and I really like the look of it. The elastic straps adjust well to both of my feet (after breaking my ankle, my feet aren't quite the same size any more) and the length is good in my usual size 8 regular. However, the fit is quite narrow in the width. I'm on the border between an A and B width and I found the straps to be quite snug, though I realize elastic will loosen over time. Plus the sole is very narrow, especially in the instep and heel. If you have a medium to wide foot, you'll probably find this sandal is too tight / too small for you..

Adorable shoe - in my opinion, strange fit
Love the look and feel of this shoe; very stylish (and flat too!). However, unless you get the elastic in the back positioned "just right" the toe tends to extend forward just a little long, causing a potential "tripping" problem.
This shoe is a winner, and you can indeed wear it with just about anything from Lands' End's adorable crops to a dress, and your customers do appreciate a stylish shoe in a flat. (As opposed to those outlandish 6-inch sandals other vendors are showing this year!) But I did feel compelled to warn the other ladies about making sure this shoe is placed correctly in the foot. Tripping is not a good thing! Now that I've found the trick, I will order more!

Cute, but not a distance walker
The elastic straps make this shoe very easy to slip on and off. They look super cute on and will be versatile. Size 9 is my normal size and they are a perfect fit. My only issue is that the sole is very hard which will make walking any distance hard on the heels and knees. I will enjoy wearing these out to dinner or around my office this summer, however, I won't be trekking around town in them.
