Cypress Gladiator Sandals styled by the FP Me community
Everything I hoped they'd be!!!
Comfortable, soft, no need to 'wear them in'. Zip allows them to stay up and give you structure to work with while you adjust the straps as you wish. I have a narrow foot and they fit me well. Size 16 and still fit my calves. Feminine pattern. I am so happy with them and I'm hard to please
Really cute but not for short people
I am just about 5'4 and although they look really good on the zippered back comes just above the bend behind my knee and stabs into the back of my leg while walking or sitting. Although they won't work for me, if you're above 5'6 or have longer legs they are a great, versatile gladiator that can be dressed up or dressed down.
Overall great gladiator
I've wanted a knee length gladiator for quite a while now, but my super athletic calves/legs make it hard to find a pair with a lace long enough to fit me! The extra length on the model made me feel like they would fit me, and they went on crazy sale for $62 or something and I had to pull the trigger, despite all the negative reviews. I read lots of people complaining babout the lacing. I used to sell skateboarding sneakers and snowboard boots, so I felt ready to deal with them. Obviously out of the package,the laces are VERY tight. Unless u have very skinny calves, u are going to want to immediately start loosening the laces from top to bottom... down to the foot area. It can be tedious, but totally worth it! I unzipped the back, loosened the laces & did the process sitting flat on my floor with my legs extended (good stretch process too Hehe). As I relaced the sandal, I'd zip the bacK up. The whole process for both legs took maybe 10-15 minutes (I told u, I have massive calves!)
Cute but poorly made
I bought these a few months ago. I pulled them out this week to wear on my Honeymoon (main reason I had purchased them) and one pair immediately broke as I put them on. Extremely disappointed in this product especially for the amount of money I paid for them.. high quality wouldn't have broke so easily.. Too bad because they are..were* super cute..

Help!! They won't stay up...!!
I am somewhat disappointed in these gladiators for sure. Not only do they take 15-20 mins to put on, they also won't stay put. The sandals eventually start to slide down your calf - making for a sloppy appearance. It's like the leather starts to stretch out really quickly. It takes forever to strategically put the laces into place and about half that time for them to fall down. Hopefully I can figure out a way to prevent this from happening. Any suggestions?
Order them now!
I was VERY hesitant to order these after reading the reviews but I really wanted to see for myself. OMG I'm so glad I bought them, and I plan to buy black if they get some in my size. I wore them the day after I got them, got numerous compliments! They are tricky at first and look like not much in the box, but once you take the time to put them on, You will be in love! They are so flattering, comfortable, and just fun to wear. Now I just need more outfits to wear with them!
Cute but save your money
We can all agree that these shoes are absolutely darling. They are accurately depicted in terms of shade or color and how the shoe will fit on your leg and easily love at first sight. However, they aren't a cheap pair of sandals and one would expect them to wear as such as well. Prepare to be disappointed! The base of this shoe is like paper - not durable and quick to damage. The stitching that holds the lace/shoe to the base of the sole is poorly done and I had to take them to my cobbler in the first 2 weeks of wearing them. He said to be careful with them because sooner than later they would completely detach and become unwearable. Which is such a shame because I adore these shoes! Wish that FP had put some quality in the production of these.

Lots of complements
These are adorable! Gave 4 stars because they are not as comfy as I hoped. Heel area is kind of funky, slides a bit as I walk, but may be it is just me. They are really good looking sandals. I had no problems adjusting the lacing. Think it is a great shoe for the price.
I am obsessed with these shoes and have received SO many compliments on them! But unfortunately, the quality does not match the price point. The leather straps have torn twice- one on the left shoe and one on the right- after only 6 times wearing them :(
