Cute pictures on the web site and soooo cute in person, too! I bought these in the cognac and the color is a nice rich brown. I wear a size 8-1/2 to 9 so I ordered them in the 9. They are a snug fit but loosen with wear. I have thin legs, but these were a bit tight on the legs at first and I think if I were a true size 9 they would be too tight on the foot. I liked these sandals so much I also ordered the midnight color.
These sandals are exactly as you see them. They are well made, and fit true to size. They are a bit fitted by the ankle, but I have small ankles so I liked that! They are comfy too, and the color is depicted very well in the picture. Basically, what you see is definitely what you get. They are pricey, but worth it!
Cognac size 8
I got the Cognac/Brown color today in the mail, these fit true to EXACT size but do need to be stretched for a bit before completely comfortable, if you like a bit of room in your shoes or have wider/taller feet order at least 1 size up. The color matches the pictures perfectly which is nice since it makes them go with everything without being harsh like the full black color. The only flaw that may take some time to wear in and get over is the leather seam hitting the back/top of my heel, i don't have big feet but the bottom most part of the leather sits on my heel bone and digs in, i hope this will go away with time or i'll add some moleskin on the inside. I tried these on with a few different outfits and they really are so perfect looking. I'd highly recommend these to anyone especially in the Cognac color.
These sandals are PERFECT for the person who likes to make a statement but be comfortable at the same time. Like most of Freebird's stuff, they have taken an ankle boot and artfully slashed it -- this time into a sandal boot that is extremely comfortable to wear and never fails to garner me compliments. I got the size 9 in the darker brown and couldn't be happier (though I did stretch them overnight before first wearing). Only caveat -- from someone who lives in a state where summers are extremely hot and humid -- is that these are better suited to weather in the 70s and 80s, thanks to the very boot-like coverage. But you won't regret buying them!
OMG! In love!
I love these shoes. I go the brown and they are so magnificent. I got so many questions and compliments. Well made, quality material. Nice thick wood heel and sole. Great summer sandal that can go with everything.
well made, beautiful sandal!!
I was skeptical at first because I thought the leather details would be too much, but was pleasantly surprised when they arrived. They are so cute and there is a perfect amount of leather going on without looking overboard. So comfortable too! A little tight around the ankles but I already notice them breaking in after wearing them around my apartment. Great Long term sandal investment, noticeably very well made!
These sandals are absolutely beautiful. The heel on these sandals is perfect ( I can't walk in sandals that are too flat). The shoe is well made and very comfortable. I am usually a 6 or 6.5 in shoes, I ordered the 6 and they fit great. When I first put them on, the leather around the toe area felt a little tight but this loosened up after the first time I wore them. I highly recommend these being that I can still see them being in great condition in a few years.
These Sandals Rule!
These sandals run true to size. I wore them the first day I got them and didn't get any blisters, but I did get loads of compliments :-) I like that they aren't the average gladiator sandal. The zip up the inside is a little tight on the top of my ankle and I'm not a large girl. So if you have thicker legs these shoe may not be the right ones for you. Otherwise, they are great.
