Beautiful shoe, needed to be modified slightly.
First of all... the good. These shoe are adorable and they fit my foot perfectly. The adjustable Velcro strap ensures a great fit. They are comfortable to walk in and are nearly silent. I love having a nice pair of open sandal heels with a built-in arch. The taupe color is rich as shown and goes from office to night out to church so easily. Overall, true to size and very versatile.
Unfortunately, though the shoes were comfortable on my foot, the back strap dug into the skin while the material surrounding the toes were rubbing my two smallest toes and caused a small blister. I was able to remedy this with a foam heel liner that I cut and stuck in the offending areas and now the shoe is perfectly comfortable to wear without hurting me.
Aetrex is usually very good about making the whole shoe comfortable, so it might just be the way my foot was in the shoe. Though I was able to alter the shoe slightly so it was practical to wear all day, I still took off stars because this did affect the overall experience of the shoe and I did have to put in a little time and money to make it wearable long-term. Other people may not have this problem, but it was definitely important to note.
Most Comfy Shoes I own. Had to buy another pair.
I bought the Taupe at a Sole Perfection store a couple of days ago. I've never worn such a comfy pair of shoes. I came here to see if there were more colors and I just bought the black. These are perfect summer dressy/casual shoes.
I just received these shoes today. I can't believe they are so comfortable!! I'm done buying cheap shoes. Aetrex is the best.
