B. Makowsky Leather Sandals with Ankle Strap
This is a cute sandal, but extremely uncomfortable. Elastic should be added to the straps as feet swell in hot weather, as well as, padding added to the sole. I had to return because I could hardly get my feet into the sandal.
Run way too large. I even sized down by by half and they still look one whole size too large. I' m afraid it's getting too costly on returns it will probably be my last shoe purchase for a while. On the quality of the shoe it was there .
Cute, but hurts
I really liked this sandal, but the back of the sandal, at the top of the zipper, kept banging inot my ankle with every step. I tried them around the house several times, but can't imagine wearing them for even a short amount of time. I think I would either have a blister or a very raw spot on the back of my ankle. Too bad...I really did like them, but they hurt.
unfortunately i found the shoe to run wider than expected as i have a narrow width. thw shoe it,s self is stylish.
I bought these sandals in both black and white. They are sooo comfortable. Go with skirts or pants. True to size.
Love the ankle strap
I just love BMac's strappy shoes. Quite flattering to the foot. No, these don't have padding to speak of, except a nice rubber outsole on the bottom, but the gentle wedge gets me by. They aren't terribly uncomfortable, but most people buy shoes for comfort. So, I bought a thin new cushy insole in the drugstore that you can stick to the sole of the sandal, and it's smaller than your foot so it doesn't show. That's what I'm going to try in these.
Love this shoe but..
I love this shoe but it is so flat I cannot wear them very long. But I will keep them cause I love the way it looks on my foot. So cute. I wear Birkenstocks all the time so am used to a lot of support. These are so not Birks. Giving a 4 since won't be able to wear them like I would like to...But, soooo cute...
Maybe if you have no instep to speak of...
Lord knows I have tried to wear Bmak, however, sizing has been an issue almost every shoe I have ordered. Styling is great, but if you have even a slightly high instep or a foot that's a little wide, it's no go. I have kept a couple of the flats b'cuz they were too cute but after a work day, my feet are not happy. Maybe it's me, but I usually wear a size 8 but have to order 81/2 in Bmak. Not a comfort line unfortunately. Seems Bruce is great designer and I have purchased many of his handbags. I was hoping his shoes would be as good. Sooo dissappointed...Even the ones marked wide are NOT.
More Colors, Please!
This is the best sandal ! it's so adorable and flatters the foot and ankle. I bought the white and the gray and I'm so pleased with everything about them. I wear a 6 1/2 -7 depending on the style of the shoe. This one is a very flexible, comfortable 6 1/2. The footbed is well shaped for the average foot. My toes don't hang over the sides( a problem with too many of the sandals I've tried lately) and the stap over the foot fits perfectly. I love the look of the delicate braided ankle straps too. Great job Bruce!!
Adorable flat! Comfortable and flexible! I purchased the "grey" but it looks more like a tan/neutral/greyish color which was exactly what I was looking for. This is my 4th pair of B. Maks and my 5th pair should be on my doorstep when I get home :)
This shoe is a little tricky to get on through the ankle strap however I think I'll get used to it!

My only issue with this shoe is that it is a little tricky getting your foot in the shoe through the ankle straps. Once you get used to it its just fine.
