These sandals were beautiful, and I was really hoping they would work out; unfortunately, they are not constructed so well. The top piece of the sandal dug into my toes no matter how I adjusted the buckle of the strap. Basically, the edges of the thong piece are corners instead of rounded off, and after just wearing them around the house, I already had uncomfortable red marks on both feet. That was the only but major caveat to keeping these shoes! Other than that, they were comfortable and fit well. Hopefully next time, Matisse will take the design into account since I'm not sure how anyone could wear these without finding those corners annoying.
