These just didn't fit quite right
on March 8, 2014
I wanted to like these, and certainly they must work for the multitudes, but for my foot it just wasn't right. I carry some extra weight, and I think that prevented my foot from sliding completely into the sandal (it was nearly alright) and therefore my toes didn't fit up perfectly snug against the toe strap thingy. It just seemed I kept wanting to snuggle my foot more into the sandal, but I couldn't because the band across the top was just a teeny bit snug. I bought both a size 8 and a size 9 to try at home, and neither one of them worked - each had the same issue. The 9 just stuck out in the back heel area further.
Also, a big factor for me was that it has a Velcro strap for the back heel. I guess I thought it might be elastic banded at the back, but since the strap is rather short-ish, to get the sandals on, I actually had to undo the strap and then found that the strap easly slipped out of the buckle causing me to have to actually "buckle" it again once it was on my foot. I guess I'm too used to slip on "and go" sandals. Plus since the straps were black it was a little hard for my "older" eyes to see the buckle and the strap distinctly enough to feed the strap back through. Again, that's just my eyes :)
They are pretty sandals -- nice and sparkly - and appear very well made, but they style is just not for me.
