I ordered these sandals along with the woven Torrence ones for which I have also written a review. I only say these are true to size because my foot fits exactly within the form of the sandal. These are very poorly designed and made. Unlike the other reviewers, I didn't have the problem with the strap sliding down. But the strap threads into the toes at a very odd angle. It digs and rubs into the space between the toes in a painful manner. The leather in that place is not smooth and the stitching is not well done. In general, the leather is of poorer quality and texture. There is a bit of elastic near the ankle, exactly where the lower support strap is. While walking, this strap pulls on the elastic in an odd way, further making what should be a comfortable, no fuss sandal rather complicated. Really unhappy with this purchase. Really not sure what to do about it.
Cute but not functional
Loved the look of this sandal but not functional. After wearing for a day, the back strap was constantly slipping off my heel. I had purchased my true size and sizing down was not an option - wouldn't have made a difference for the strap issue I experienced. Not sure what to do with these now other than throw them away? Might take them to my shoe repair to see if they can do anything to address the issue.
Beautiful shoes - unwearable
I'd been looking for summer sandals for several weeks, and fell in love with these as soon as I saw them. I love the curving strap from the front that wraps around the heel. Unfortunately, the first time I wore them, I realized that I had wasted $68. As another reviewer noted, the wrap strap pulls back from the strap that crosses the toes, and you can see an unsightly seem. The worst thing, though, is that the wrap strap on one foot keeps sliding down, eventually ending up under the foot. I'm so disappointed. I tried moving the wrap strap a little, but it just keeps sliding down and under the foot. I'm from Europe, on a big holiday, and I was counting on these sandals. This is my first experience with Free People, and my daughter-in-law told me they were a great brand, but these shoes are extremely disappointing.
Shoe not wearable
Bought the shoe directly from the store. Wore them the next day and the sandal strap slides off the back of the foot. You will have to stop every few seconds to pull back up, or otherwise wear it as a flip flop. The strap will not stay put, and super disappointed. The sandal is very cute, but can't be worn.
I am a huge free people fan but these sandals do not live up to their quality. First the sandal itself fits, but the wrap around part is not sewn into the strap that covers the toes, so it pulls uncomfortably on your foot and reveals the stitching/lower cut triangle of the strap, which to me completely ruined the aesthetic to the sandal. Also, after only one week of wear, the color on the gold sandal started to wear off. Complete waste of money.
Hey Gekittel, We're so sorry to hear about your sandals! Someone from our team will be reaching out to you. - Free People
I was super excited for these shoes, I bought them twice, once in my normal size and the back strap kept sliding off, so I bought again in a size smaller. the back strap still slides off, I can not take more than 3 steps without the back strap sliding down and making it so I have to stop and pull the strap up, I will probably never wear these shoes again bc they make it so difficult to walk in. Super disappointed. I would not recommend to buy.
