I LOOOOVE my Worishofers!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Worishofer Women's 583 Slingback Sandal (Apparel)
I'm known for my shoe collection, but these are the ones I look for when I'm heading out the door. They look super cute with shorts, skirts, and dresses, from minis to maxis... very casual yet modern and dressier than flip-flops (slippers for those of us in Hawaii). They just give any outfit a cool edge. I receive loads of compliments on these - from cute, stylish, high school age kids AND from old ladies and middle-aged men. I find it funny, as they are definitely granny shoes. They are not at all sexy but they make my legs look great. I suppose since they are orthopedic shoes I don't even need to mention the comfort factor, but I will anyway: I can wear these for days! They are the MOST comfortable shoes I own by far - and I don't buy cheap, uncomfortable shoes. They run a tiny bit wide. If you have a super narrow foot, I can't recommend these, as the laces won't compensate enough. I normally wear a 37 (US 7) and the Worishofer 37 fits with a little room. If you are wavering, don't; you will definitely not regret buying these.
Okay, I am on my third (and final) pair of these and have taken off two stars. The soles wear down VERY quickly. When I wore them every day, it would be a matter of a couple months before they were worn through to the cork - and at that point, they practically disintegrated under my feet. And I'm not talking about all day walking, either; I have a desk job, and I live in Hawaii where we do not wear our shoes inside our homes. I still love them for their ease of wear and, interestingly, still get compliments on them. I plan to take my current pair to a cobbler to have a thicker sole put on BEFORE it wears through... maybe something chunky for a new look.
