I thought I would give these a try at the clearance price, but I should have paid more attention to the reviews. These shoes are cute, but they run large.

    Could not wait to get these guava espadrilles to match a number of guava tops I had purchased from Boden... but the shoes were a little wide on my narrow foot, the last hit my arch in the wrong place, and they just plain old hurt because there was no flex in the sole so the strap pulled too hard on my ankles. Having to send them back. Also, the guava did not match the other Boden guava items, it was too pink. Love the style, they just need a rework.

        These are really cute, but they run about 1/2 size large. I am generally between an 8 1/2 and a 9, American, a 40 European. I ordered the 40 and they are way too big. They will have to go back.

        Also, I ordered the duckegg color... the color on the website is accurate, but the color in the catalog is much more jewel-toned than the shoes actually are. If you are looking for a minty green, they are adorable.

        Adorable, but alas, Too Small

        • Too Tight In Toes

        Best Uses

          I am between a 36 and 37 in Boden shoes (half sizes, please, Boden!). I bought these in the "guava pinspot" in both 36 and 37, and while the 36 was OK in length, the bit across the toes was just too tight. Being fabric, I did not think that the area would stretch with wear, so I sent the size 36 pair back.

          The 37s are fine across the toes, and not too long, but the strap is not adjustable enough to keep the shoes from slipping when I walk. If there were two more holes on the strap, I think the problem would be solved -- that's what I'm hoping, anyway, as I've decided to keep the 37s and take them to my shoe repair shop to have them add extra holes on the strap. (Also, I got these in a 36 in the "navy pinspot" as well, and the fit was the same as the 36 in the "guava pinspot" -- just too tight across the toes.)

          I will say that these shoes are very comfortable in the larger size and adorable; these are the reasons I've decided to go to the extra expense of adding holes to the strap.

          If you are between sizes, I would suggest sizing up, but be aware that you may run into loose strap issues in the larger size as did I.

          I do not have great luck with Boden shoes -- it seems I am firmly between a 36 and 37 (half sizes please, Boden?). I bought these in the "navy pinspot" in a 36, thinking that, as a sandal, the smaller fit might be OK. The length was adequate, but the width across the toes was just too tight. The uppers are all-fabric, so I didn't hold out much hope for any stretching with wear. Unfortunately, I had to send these back.

          I also got these in the "guava pinspot" in a 37, and the strap does not tighten enough to keep the shoes from slipping (I am keeping them, however, and taking them to my shoe repair shop to see if they can add extra holes to the strap).

          The navy is a dark navy, and the design and overall comfort of the shoes are good (outside of being too tight across the toes in the 36). I do wish Boden did half sizes!

          If you are between sizes, you may wish to size up, but be aware that you may have a loose strap issue with the larger size.

              Boden shoes have always been a bit of a quandary for me: I'm right between a 36 and a 37 (would love half sizes -- if possible, Boden!). After reading reviews, I opted for the larger size (37), and while the length of the shoe is just fine, I find I need one more hole on the strap to make the shoe fit just right. As it is, the strap slips and my feet slide around in each shoe.

              I got this in the "guava pinspot," and the colour is indeed a happy pink (no orangey tone, as it appeared on-line to me), so it worked for me even better than expected (I have reddish undertones in my skin). The heel height is perfect, and it's quite a comfortable shoe -- it's just that strap issue that is bothersome.

              I think a smaller size would pinch my toes and be a little short, so I am actually going to keep this shoe and take it took my local shoe repair shop to see if they can add an extra hole on that strap -- the shoe is so lovely and comfortable that I find this extra expense worth it!

              If you're like me and between Boden shoe sizes, I'd recommend going for the larger size, but be aware that the strap may not offer you a good fit as it is.
