I was looking for a more affordable and non-leather/vegan replacement for my Naot platform sandals, which were several years old and pretty worn out. These mostly fit the bill.
One thing I look for in a shoe is a nonslip rubber heel, ideally molded like this one appears to be. I don't like the kind of heel that ends with a hard plastic heel cap, as I often would slip on the edge of it—plus they wear out quickly and need to be replaced. From the pictures, this shoe appeared to fit the bill.
A few things to note:
- The shoes ran a bit large. I am a 9.5 and the 9 fit perfectly. The back strap is just barely loose enough to keep my foot feeling secure but not so tight that I'm going to form a blister. The medium width was true to size. Order half a size down and you should be OK.
- Upon close examination, there were some glue blobs visible around the sole. However, most people looking at your shoes are going to do so from at least a few feet away. There was one sticking out from the insole, which I sliced off with an X-acto blade.
- Remember how I said I didn't like shoes that would cause me to slip? The first time I tried these on, they felt dangerous—because, oddly, the manufacturers added a coat of felt-like material to the bottom (think slippers), making a walk on a non-carpeted floor potentially hazardous. (I don't know why they thought this was a good idea. Cosmetics?) However, a short walk outside completely wore away this fabric, exposing the hard rubber sole I wanted.
Overall, these are decent, comfortable shoes for an OK price. I miss my Naots though!
