I love these sandals so much I have two pair of the same Kayla style. One is leopard and the other is navy. They have just a bit of lift in the heel which make me feel a bit more dressed up. They are super comfy right out of the box, no break in needed. I will say this style does run a bit short. The size 40 feels more like an 8 1/2 than a 9. I am in between sizes, so these are just borderline ok for me. You might want to go up a size to be sure your toe isn't right on the edge.
