Romana Fest Gladiator Sandals styled by the FP Me community
Love love love these sandals. The slouchy look makes m look even better than regular gladiators. Fits lots of different legs as the straps are adjustable. Won't get tight on skinnier calves though, I have m on the smallest buckle size and they're still loose. Very happy!
Really nice but didn't work
I originally ordered these in the berry and my order got cancelled because they couldn't fulfill the back order which was disappointing but the customer service rep was extremely helpful in getting them in black. When I put them on they looked amazing, fit my leg perfectly, and I could tell they were good quality. However, when I started walking in them the straps around the toes in the front of the shoes didn't hold my foot in so my whole foot slides forward and hangs over the shoe. I don't have a very narrow foot so it's unfortunate that it worked out this way and sadly I'll have to return them :(
fell in love, but they broke
I absolutely love these sandals and stared at them for a few months before caving and buying a pair. They are super comfortable and I get tons of compliments when I wear them. The only issue is the zipper in the back though sturdy and functional the metal tab that pulls the zipper up just broke one day when I was pulling it up and the shoe was stuck on my foot for like an hour while we tried to put anything into the prong to bring down the zipper. I couldn't bear to cut myself out of my favorite sandals and finally I somehow got the zipper down with some help, but sadly haven't been able to wear my favorite sandals since. Great design, I wish sturdier materials were used.
Love love love
After buying the taupe color I waited patiently for the Tribal patterned to come back into stock. I finally got the "back in stock" email last week and ordered them. They just arrived today and are gorgeous. I have short, thicker calves and I just loosen the buckles and scrunch them down to zip them, then pull them up. They are amazing. Wish I could afford all the colors. I wear size 8 or 8-1/2. The taupe are 8-1/2 and the tribal pair is size 8. Both fit great so true to size. Get a pair today!!!
I first ordered these sandals in the beige and loved them, however they ran a bit small and my toes were hanging out in the front? SO I had to return them but by then they were sold out in that color, then I opted for the black ones.. Glad I did because they are very trendy and gorgeous!! The reason for the missing star is like other girls have mentioned they do slouch to the side? Which is a little annoying but part of their charm too. However, the beige ones didn't do that... Overall, I am happy, super comfy.
LOVE! BUT A LITTLE BIT TIGHT IN THE CALF
I ordered these in the black size 36 (I am a true size 6) and they fit true to size. I knew these might be a little tight on my calves based on the other reviews but decided to give it a try. I am 5'4" athletic build with 14" calves. I loved that these have adjustable buckles so I thought no problem here these will definitely fit! HOWEVER, not all the straps are adjustable. Some have buckles and some are "fixed" and don't have a buckle. You can kinda see it on the model where some straps are tighter than others along the length of the shaft. I adjusted the buckles to the loosest setting. But on me these don't look like they do on the model - I was hoping they were slouchier but they are more fitted on me. But they are still really cute on so I'm keeping! And I might even order in another color. The quality seems really good as well and I think these will hold up nicely!
I'm so sad! I wanted these sandals so badly! I order a full size up after I saw the previous reviews but unfortunately I could close them only at mid- calf but the feet size was perfect, so if your calf is slim you shouldn't have any problem...I'm gonna try to get the size up to see if it works that way!
Got them today, love the sandals they are soft and comfy the only issue is i saw that this sandal is true to size so i ordered 6,5 but just because these are not flip flop styled, my toes were hitting on the ground because there is not much support from the sides. So if you dont have wide feet, i would recommend you to order half size bigger. Unfortunately i will have to exchange these with half size bigger hope it works this time..
So bummed :(
I am so SO sad that these didn't work out for me. They are so cute and I wanted them to fit so badly, but alas, they were too tight and only zipped about half way up my calf. Had to send them back.
Grab the berry before they're gone!!!!!!
I want to first clarify my fit review- the sandal itself is not too tight. I found the footbed to run short. My foot measures just about...slightly under 9.5 inches. I'm pretty much a true size 9. The size 9 fits perfectly but there's just a pinch of extra room. If your foot measures longer than mine, I recommend the size 9.5. You'll want to order them soon as the size 9.5 are low on stock and knowing they still haven't brought back the floral romana fest sandals, I imagine this will be yet another discontinued color. The new berry must be cut differently. I have tiny, tiny legs and they were an awesome fit right out of the box with just the slightest slouch. The color is amazing, they were packed great and each sandal contained its on dust bag unlike the bellflower sandals I ordered. I'm still waiting on FP to see if they'll be able to get the sz 40's as the tan pair I ordered had black smudge issues on the embroidery. I wish those would've been packed nicely like these were. Free People......please, please bring back the floral romana fest sandals!!!!! Based on all the reviews I've read for these sandals it sounds like the fit is different based on whether they are the suede or fabric. My recommendation is to call FP and get a heel to toe measurement before ordering unless you can locate these in store and try them on. I adore them!!!!!!
