Promising review: “These shoes are incredibly comfortable and required zero break-in time. The first time I wear a new pair of flats, I always bring a pair of back up shoes because inevitably the new flats rub my feet somewhere and cause blisters because they need to be broken in. With this pair, I didn’t use the back up pair I brought! I’ll definitely be purchasing these in more colors.” —Rebecca

Promising review: “I’ve had a partial ankle fusion, so footwear is hit or miss. I wore these walking around the grocery store for over 2 hours and my ankle never hurt. This is always a good thing! I have larger calves and they still fit perfectly. I may need an insert just for the fact that I have extremely high arches, but there’s room for those to be added and does not in any way take away from the overall comfort.” —Angel1022

Ankle strap sandals cleverly designed with a slightly wider toe box, meaning your pinky toe won’t look as if the dear life is being squished out of it.


Promising review: “These shoes were a great find! Cute and trendy, yet comfortable. The color is gorgeous and the fit is flattering. My foot is wide across the toe box, but narrow in the heel. Sometimes I find that my toes look squished into the end of my shoe, so I often avoid open toe heels for this reason, however, these were just right for my foot and did not cramp my toes at all. I love the chunky heel, which provides great stability.” —Andrea Pitman
