I didn't end
up keeping these, but I got the Paniolos instead. I just wanted to write a review about my experiences trying several different Olukai shoes
. I love them all, but some fit better than others. The Kumu fit me fine, but I normally wear a 7.5 and had to size up to an 8. I pretty much have to do that with all Olukai shoes
I have discovered. The 7 was the right length and the straps were fine, but the arch did not hit me in the right spot. It was too far forward. I have discovered that is because I have short toes. So, I kept wanting to push my foot forward, but that hurt between my toes. If you have long toes, you'll probably want to size down if you are in between. If you have short toes, you'll want to size up (unless you have narrow feet, then I'd suggest the Haiku instead). In addition to the Kumu and the Paniolo, I tried the Ohana and Haiku. The Ohana has the highest arch, so if you have a high arch, I'd recommend you try those. The Haiku is narrow, so try that one if you have a narrow foot. Overall, I love all the Olukai shoes
. You can't go wrong. The arch support is amazing. You just have to find the right size and style for your feet. Just order several pair from Zappos and try them all. I love the pewter color -- they can be dressed up or down since they are metallic. I plan to purchase them after I've gotten some wear out of my Paniolos.
