Strappy leather lace-up sandals with a T strap and toe loop. Adjustable ankle wrap.
These sandals are totally cute, but not very comfortable or practical. Lacing them up takes forever, so taking them on and off is inconvenient. They can really only be worn if you're not planning to do any walking because the ties fall down every couple of blocks. And the strap across the toes is very tight on me, so it's hard to keep these sandals on straight. I keep wearing them hoping the leather will soften and form to my feet, making them more comf, because I really like the way they look! Bummer.y
U can't trust reviews. People are just not accurate and so dramatic and critical. For $29, these sandals are a dream with the suede, the gorgeous rust color, the t strap lace up design, etc. They run true to size. If you wear a size 8, a 38 is perfect. The only thing people did get right was the toe strap being a little snug but I am certain they will give over time. It was a bit of an exaggeration also about the laces falling. Any shoe this style will loosen. What I love is that I can wear them knee high or wrapped around my ankles for two different looks. I am wearing mine with a floral cold shoulder dress. Looks very bohemian. Love these and thank you free peeps!
I purchased the Dahlia sandal - very true to size - extra long suede straps are perfect to triple wrap at ankle and the cross tie twice up my leg so the sandal didn't slip around when I walked - great shoe find and 25% off in stores this weekend !! Happy 4th of July Free People !!!
I love these!
They run small. I wear a 9 (39) but I had to purchase a 10 (40). They look great on. I've gotten a lot of complements on this shoe. I would have given it 5 star if they did not run small.
ties come undone
The strap across the toe must be made with cement. It does not flex. My foot is never even lengthwise with the sole and I'm falling off the inner or outer edges. This is due to the horrible design of the straps which come undone roughly every 3 minutes. If you have a child with you learning to tie shoelaces I would say this is the only upside. Very cute. But see the other reviews as they mention the same Frustrating that they are good for pictures but not actually to be used to walk around. .
While these look adorable and fit true to size, I am very disappointed. The ties keep falling down! I wore these out with friends and didn't do a ton of walking and still had to stop and retie them at least 10-15 times throughout the day. I don't have a FP store anywhere near me (bought these on vacation in NYC), so now I am stuck with sandals I won't wear again due to the aggravation. Sad.
Great looking-Not super practical
Amazing looking sandal, just not if you want to go on super long walks or need these for festival wear. I am going to try to break mine in, but you have to tie the calf straps super tight to keep them from falling, and the toe straps are extremely tight and chafing. They look amazing, just not super comfortable.
I saw them in a store on Friday and Loved them but they didn't have my size so I ordered then right then and just received them...Loved the prompt shipping . But strap a crossed the toes are VERY tight. I don't consider myself to have a wide foot. I think they would stretch out since the leather is suede/washed and somewhat soft but I don't want to take the painful chance. They are going back.
