Very red, very shiny, a little off?,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Worishofer Women's 251 Sandal (Apparel)
My wife bought this, so this is her review: (Amazon.com seems to treat us as one person, electronically.) The patent is so red and shiny it looks rather plastic. The leather is very stiff. They are very cute wedge-style sandals, though, not too high, and felt "soft" walking. I would have considered keeping them and wearing them first with thin cotton socks in the hope of making the leather soften and conform better to the top of my foot, as the lower edge of the band cut into my foot immediately. There was another problem with the foot bed, however. Maybe it's my feet, or this particular pair of shoes, but while the ergonomic foot bed fit like it was made for me on the right foot, on the left it hit the wrong spots. I didn't think it was worth the trouble to see if another pair in the same size fit both feet, since I bought on-line.
I should add that I occasionally buy size 8 1/2 (mostly for toe room in closed shoes) instead of an 8, and these were size 8. Unfortunately, 8 1/2 wasn't available and the shoe is expensive. If I'd been happier with the leather, otherwise, I might have considered buying a second pair in the half size and trying to get a perfect fit for both feet. (If it hadn't worked, I would have returned both pairs, and if it had, I would have then donated the mismatched pair -- with an explanatory note -- to charity.)
One more comment that might prove helpful is that I have an average heel width, but across the toes need a little more room, so often buy "C" width if the shoe has some give and that option is available, possibly "D" if there's no give at all, and buy "W" width otherwise. (That's also why I tend to buy slingbacks and open backed shoes and sandals). The buckle and strap on this shoe is adjustable, and on the last hole of the strap it fit very nicely in terms of width.
