So comfy and cute
I love these sandals! I got them in black and have even been thinking of buying them in other colors. I usually wear a 7.5 and I got the size 8 in these and they fit great. I have thin legs and actually had to punch some new holes in some of the straps to get them to fit snug around my calves. I was worried about the thin sole, but they are extremely comfortable, and I am looking forward to wearing them a lot this year for festival season.
I love these gladiators. At first I was hesitant on buying them as I thought the buckles were going to appear as a lot going on but it really wasn't and went on to purchase another pair. I have both the black & the taupe color. They are very comfortable and I can wear them all day long. The only annoyance I have with them is that they are a hassle to put on & take off due to them having all those buckles. I do feel like a warrior in them :).
love love love
I always get so many compliments on these shoes every time I wear them. Def worth the money. When I first bought them I had to go to my local shoe maker guy, and get him to put an extra hole on the top buckle which made them a perfect fit.
Ok so, i ordered this in black and i adore them! in real life this sandals look just like the photo, really good quality and really good material, the vegan leather feels soft and these are actually very comfortable sandals, i wear this with anything... there's just one little problem, im always between size 7.5 or 8 and the 8 fits perfect, my body is athletic so my calves aren't skinny ones, not big i think but like regular i don't have long skinny legs and the buckles are just fine, so for those with a little bit bigger calves these are not going to work.
I received these today and I'm really disappointed. The vegan leather has a smell to it, and the sole feels really cheap and plastic-y. I feel like they fit really small on the foot, as if my foot was too wide even though I have narrow feet. The other thing thats too bad is that there's no zipper-- so you have to buckle and unbuckle every single buckle to get them off and on. The actual buckles themselves felt really cheap and kept sticking out. The way they arrived in the mail, they were folded in half. This pair is just not worth $150 bucks to me. The only good thing was that the color is beautiful. I thought these would be good quality because they are "Faryl Robin" but they're just not. I'll be returning them and buying a pair elsewhere, I'm not sure I'd buy another pair of free people shoes after this experience.
perfect! but not for wide calves
I bought them in the light tan color and they are gorgeous! I have relatively small calves and I need to use the last hole on the strap around the calf. Fine for me, but if I have even medium/large calves, they wouldn't work. I do wish they had a little more padding on the shoe, but I did walk for about a mile in them and they only made my feet a little sore on the bottom and I have super sensitive feet. So they're more comfortable than I imagined. Overall, so beautiful and exactly what I wanted.
I am in love with these sandals! They fit true to size and are really comfortable! I've already received so many compliments. I included a photo to show how they look in person, but keep in mind that I'm 6' tall so they don't go quite as high on my legs as they will on most.
I'm OBSESSED... OBSESSED I say!!!! I'm 5'3, calves are between 12.5in-13in around the fullest part of my calf and these fit perfectly! I would say if your calves are any larger than this - most likely these will not fit. If your calves are smaller - be prepared to make new holes to tighten the straps. I was able to switch a strap up to the top buckle since it was extremely long and then the top fit perfectly. I had to make new holes though in buckles 3 and 4 on both legs but that did not take but a minute and then i was SET. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these sandals. Yes they take awhile to buckle and adjust to put on but once they do--- oh man - so worth it! I have them in the taupe color in a size 6 - my normal sandal size btw so I think they do run tts. The material is oh so soft and the color is stunner! I dont think I will be wearing these out for a long period of time in the sun - crazy tan lines would occur. I have worn these with maxi dresses, skirts, shorts, mini dresses and rompers and they just add a fantastic spruce up. I cant say enough good things about this sandal. Worth the extra time to put on and take off - oh and i do sometimes need to adjust the front and back strap a tiny bit because they slightly move - not alot tho but if that would annoy you - something to consider, for me - the look is worth it.
Compliments pay for these shoes
Love love love em. I wear size 8 and purchased an 8; they fit a LITTLE smaller than size 8. My legs are so small in some parts thay I had to create my own buckle hole. Received so many compliments-- if I didn't get a compliment they stared at them as I walked by. GET EM!
