B. Makowsky Camila Leather Sandals w/ Adj. Ankle Strap
Drop Dead Sexy
Ok , Let me begin by saying I already have the brown and black in this shoe . I ordered the 9, I usually were a 8 1/2 in shoes but when I order B Mack I go half size up because of the Italian leather and design they tend to run a bit smaller. I have gotten good at ordering his shoes now. Fit perfectly, it is soft, the leather breathes like fine wine. So comfortable. I wore these to a fund raiser for Children's hospital with a beautiful Black Dress and I was HOT, thank you B Mack for bringing modern sexy , young shoes to the Q please continue to design an bring shoes to us here. I don't always like to go to Nordstrom's , and Bloomingdales , etc to get great shoes. Love the wedge and the mix of colors, I can were it with so many things. I have now gone back for the white mix. P.S. I wore these in the cold weather in California and I was fine. Love them. And I could actually stand in them and walk in them. What a concept for great sexy shoes!!!
Really stylish and well-made. They were my correct size, but they gave me the WORST blisters on my heels! Couldn't make it through the day without band-aides!! Haven't dared to try them again.
Cognac Multi, size 9 is true to size, but too high for me.
I feel a little more confident walking in shoes that are closer to the ground(2-3" heels).
The shoe is actually very pretty, both color and style and the leather is soft.
The ankle strap should have been padded for added comfort when walking.
COMFORTABLE AND STYLISH IN SAN FRANCISCO
In September I purchased the Camila Leather Sandals - Stone at the Lunch Time Special price. These sandals are beautiful, comfortable to wear and quite stylish. I purchased the size 9M, they fit true to size (I don't want any TOES hanging over my sandals!!) I think the color of the sandals are richer looking in person than they appear in this photo. I may purchase the other color if my size is still available but I will wait for the price to drop ( I paid $56.64 not including S/H & Tax). In "The City" I can pretty much wear sandals year round. If you are a woman who does not want to wear high heels but still wants to look jazzy consider these B. Mak sandals. I wore these Camila sandals with the Nicole Richie Collection Printed Crinkle Maxi Dress in Paprika (A224298) and there was just enough wedge to keep my maxi from dragging on the floor. I received compliments on my outfit. Thank you very much. I am a selective shopper and realize everybody can not wear every style but I think these sandals will elevate your wardrobe plus add the "FLY" factor to your individual style. So, if you are able order these comfortable beauties. Your girl in San Francisco, Karen . . . PEACE
BM's sandals are the greatest. in my book! The sizing is consistent, and they are so comfy - they are the only high heeled shoes I like to wear. I bought the cognac at the super sale price - they are so worth it, I'm thinking of getting the other color and putting back for next summer. They are very comfortable and well made. I agree with those posters who said these are somewhat narrow through the toebox.
Decided to send back
This is a pretty shoe, but after trying them on and walking around, have decided to send back. Just was not 100% and afraid I would end up not wearing them. I noticed after a short while of trial wearing at home, they were not comfortable. I guess that made up my mind. I purchased the ivory and the color blocking was pretty, but also not crazy about the dark brn. heel. Just not my style.
These ate gorgeous and comfortable!
Received these today and loved them right out of the box! I ordered the cognac in a 6 and they fit perfectly. The color is gorgeous and they are probably the most comfortable sandals I've owned. This is my fourth pair of B Makowskys and I have loved everyone!
Looked like they had been worn
I have been thrilled with every single shoe I received in the past from QVC. Sometimes they didn't fit right and had to return, but most of the shoes I wear come from QVC. I have one pair of Makowsky shoes I dearly love and was smitten with the picture of these shoes. Received box yesterday. The heels on both shoes were badly scuffed either through wear, mishandling or poor quality control in manufacturing. My opinion from the shabby way they were packaged in comparison to other shoes I've received, is that they had been worn. Sad to say these go back tomorrow. They would have been a gorgeous shoe, but I'm not paying for seconds.
I really did not need another pair of shoes but of course who could resist another pair of B. Makowsky's sexy yet comfortable shoes with easy pay. I have to admit I was a little disappointed with the cognac multi color when they arrived.....they are lighter and not a spicy rich cognac color as in the photo. I made the mistake of trying them on with some denim capris and it was truly overwhelming the difference this pair of shoes made with capris or a dress. They make your legs look soooooo sexy. I'm still grinnin' from ear to ear.
My second pair today
This is one of my most comfortable and stylish shoe styles. I bought the tan, and was so happy, I just purchased the stone. I am thrilled that I can wear a 4" heel with a generous wedge. I love B. Makowsky shoes and handbags, and these shoes confirmed my loyalty. If I were very young I would love some of his young career styles, so these were wonderful for me to have fun and fashion as a grandmother.
Footbed is too Narrow
I order my regular size 9.5M and the footbed is too narrow. When I put the shoe on it felt a bit narrow. The straps were slightly snug which would give a little since it is leather, but then I noticed my arch was totally exposed and the outside of my foot was slightly over the edge. I compared them to my Cole Haan, Donald Pliner and Franco Sarto shoes and the BMak shoes were smaller in the footbed by a 1/4 of an inch. Really! Also, I felt like if my feet slid forward in these shoes after walking a bit my toes would hang off the edge slightly. A half size up may be too long in the arch area.
Otherwise, they seemed as if they were comfortable to walk in or stand. If this is your fit, go for it.
The leather quality was not your top grade leather, but will do for a seasonal shoe for the look.
MY MUST HAVE
Must have---BOTH. Couldn't decide on a color so I GOT BOTH. Fits like a glove, feels as soft and looks TDF. Runs a little narrow-but I like that. Won't be wearing them for everyday casual, but they'll be killer with short dresses, skirts, sophisticated suits and long pants. Love, love, love the colorblocking--so much more than a plain vanilla bone or tan colored shoe. So, up 2 date! LOVING!
