I love these sandals, but the heel is very stiff. There is no give at all and it rubs my heels terribly. I'm going to try to 'soften' them up a little, but because of the jute on top of the leather in the heel, they are much stiffer than a normal leather shoe. They are just too cute, though, so I'll just bandage my heels and keep wearing....They also feel a half size smaller than size.
I had been looking at this shoe for a long time and decided to splurge and get them when I received a really good discount offer. I'm so glad I did. The suede is so soft, yet the shoe has a nice reinforced structure, hits the ankle at the right place. I purchased the slate to wear with jeans, but have worn them with casual slacks as well. The quality is second to none and I'm sure I will have them for a long time and get a lot of wear out of them. Do not hesitate to purchase. I usually like to order 1/2 size larger in a boot so I could wear a thicker sock. I did purchase my actual size and they fit perfectly with a thin sock. I think after they are worn in a little I may also be able to wear with a little thicker sock.
I love these because they make any outfit look great, from shorts to dresses and skirts. They can be casual or dressy casual. They are very comfortable in my opinion because the sole feels padded, however they do not have arch support. They are well made and flattering. I have only had mine for a week (and I don't want to take them off) but a good friend of mine said hers lasted her for years. I have them in the luggage color and they go with everything.
I was looking for a nice pair of casual sandals to wear daily with shorts and dresses. I liked the styling but these shoes ran very wide, therefore, I had to return,
