SYNTHETIC SOLES - but comfortable
I bought these sandals to wear with the Melbourne Messenger bag in tan that I also ordered. I have a narrow foot & they fit TTS. I loved how they looked rustic & handcrafted & would be a perfect look with the bag. In reality, the leather upper is gorgeous & exactly what I expected, but the sole is some kind of synthetic compound, which defeats the idea of naturally rustic & handcrafted. With our low AUS$ they cost too much for partial synthetic, so that is very disappointing. (FP - You should state 'synthetic sole' in the description details) However, the foot bed is nicely padded & comfortable. There is an edge around the outer sole & when I first put them on it was catching on my little pinky toes as I walked. I fixed this by pulling the edge out a bit & also tightening the ankle strap more so my foot didn't move forward. This made the ankle strap too tight at first but after 15-20 mins the leather gave enough for comfort. All-in-all, I hate how much it cost me for the synthetic sole, but I feel they'll be comfortable to wear so I've decided to keep them with my bag. As it's winter here I won't wear them yet, I hope they'll be comfortable & OK for lengthy walking on my trip to East Africa next month. Otherwise, I may leave these as a gift in a local village & buy some new African ones.
