Wow, this shoe is so comfortable with an awesome insole, great fabrics, and nice roomy toe box, but the adjustable strap does not stay put! After walking for about 5 minutes, the mary jane strap has completely loosened and my feet and slipping and and out of the shoes.

It would be a perfect shoe with the addition of a snap or Velcro, but otherwise it is pretty annoying.
