I bought these Sam Edelman sandals because they were my perfect colors: black and gold. I fell in love with these sandals because they're versatile, comfortable for all day wear, and insanely chic. I wear these to work, running errands, out to dinner; you can dress them up or down. They go with EVERYTHING. The gold heel is an unexpected touch of elegance and funkiness at the same time. They're very sturdy and feel high quality. The leather straps and buckle feel luxurious, as well as indestructible. I can't wait to wear these all summer long!
