I actually ended up liking the shoe more than I thought, I'm not really a "metallic" person, most of my shoes are black. This sandal looked really different and that's what attracted me I guess. After about a week I have to say that it is more than just comfortable. It's sort of a treat for my feet between the padding and the way it looks.
Yes these are really comfortable and they look and feel great. The Western style buckles are a sweet touch but the zipper in and out is what really makes them easy to wear. I wish they had gotten to me a little faster, I don't like waiting a week after I order something to get it, but apart from that I'm really happy with these!
