Cute, but not great
These look better than they feel. I didnt like the way the top part felt; more specifically the laces didnt feel good on top part of my foot. Not terrible, just not comfortable so i may end up exchanging for something similar, and for the price there several other options. I like the color and the footbed is comfortable but the laces have an annoying itchy type feeling on my skin.
Yep, right on!
I got these sandals to wear as comfort shoes while traveling. I was out and about in these walking on cobblestone streets every day while they were still nearly brand new. The only very slight issue was a little rubbing on one ankle which I could easily cover and went away quickly. They are comfortable and look gorgeous--which is nearly mutually exclusive these days when it comes to sandals. These are way more expensive than what I would ordinarily feel happy about paying. But they were worth every cent--looking great and not having to fuss over sore feet while enjoying my travels! Every shoe should be like this!!!!!

I purchased these last summer and they are THE comfiest sandal I have ever owned. I've never owned a pair of shoes that haven't been an EU38 so took a chance and the sizing was spot on. Great distressing to the leather and a fantastic durable foot bed and sole. Wore them all around the South Pacific, on all sorts of surfaces with no problems whatsoever. One summer later they're still absolutely perfect and ready to go again for a second season!
It took me a couple of wearings...
But these really grew on me. First time I wore them was right of the box, outside. Second time, I wasn't sure about them, but knew I had wore them outside. The third time, it all came together and I knew why I bought them. I really dig these shoes. If you are a half size, size down.
I wear a 7.5 - 8 in shoes. I ordered the 37 & 38 and kept the 38. My toes were at the edge on the 37's. They are super cute. Love the weathered look of them. Will be versatile to wear this spring and summer. I got the chestnut color and it is just as pictured.
I was hesitant at first bc the toe on this shoe is more bit more pointed and not as rounded as I expected. However, after I tried them on, I decided they were great. I am a size 8 and I ordered both the 37 and the 38 to see which one worked best. I kept the 37 - it was a perfect fit. The leather loosens and softens as you wear them and the footbed is super comfortable for long walks.
Worth the price
These are very well made, comfy, so true to size and also very adjustable with the lace up. I will have to wear them in a bit with the back rubbing my ankle above my heal but the leather is so soft inside I don't think it'll take that long, and I'm not blistering. Tip... I have quite athletic legs though they're short. I probably wouldn't buy them if I had huge calves or ankles... they do sort of cut the length of my legs with the think ankle support. But funky and comfy and look great with shorts ;) 4 stars, because I wasn't expecting the triangular toe end. Thought they'd be more rounded as most sandals. Looking closer on the photos now I can see the curves. Still love them.
Gladiator gone utilitarian. I love these shoes! The leather is supple and the color with distressing is beautiful. The best part is the sole and the foot bed. The sole, unlike every other gladiator I've seen to date, is meant to be worn!! It is thick enough to endure any terrain, including festivals and can be worn for hours on end without foot discomfort due to the cushioned foot bed... all while exuding rad style! Well done FP and please, more like these!!
