Lifestride Multi Strap Wedge with Adjustable Buckle
I was going back and forth between these and another mixed metal looking sandal. Finally, I saw that there are gold flecks on the wedge and decided these would be for me. I ordered these in 9W, my regular size. When I first got them, I expected either uber comfort or that they would be too narrow -- based on previous reviews. They are plenty wide and fit perfectly. They are not the "most comfortable shoe in the world." These are sandals. They don't have great arch support. But they are made beautifully. They are comfortable enough that my feet don't complain as I am putting them on. The straps don't squeeze my toes anywhere. So, while I won't be wearing them everyday, I can wear them for longer(ish) periods of time without pain. I wore them to a wedding (and long reception) and I was comfortable. AND they are cute! If you are looking for well made sandals with a cute wedge -- try these!
I'm so glad I purchased these shoes. They are comfortable and dressy at the same time. I originally took another reviewer's advice and sized up a half size, but they were too big--in width and length, my foot kind of flopped around in them. So I exchanged for my regular size (7.5W) and they fit very well. I got the metallic, which is a great neutral and is accessory-friendly with gold or silver. Highly recommend if you are always looking for comfortable shoes like I am, but want something that can go dressy or casual and accommodate a wide foot.
These are just the right height wedge. They are comfortable and do not rub.
This sandal is a great looking shoe but it was so small I could not get my foot in it.I ordered the same size 7W that I usually wear but I feel like I should have ordered a size 8.(Never wore that size ) It's coming back and in the future I will stay with the Clarks.Three stars for the looks..
Lifestride Multi Strap Wedge with adj Buckle
These shores are adorable and comfortable. I respect the brand and went out of my comfort zone and these are my first pair of wedge shoes. These look nicer when dressed up or want to look taller. Sizing was perfect.
Most comfortable out the box sandal ever!
I'm the girl who can't wait to get out of my shoes and go barefoot at the end of the day. Due to various circumstances I ended up wearing these shoes for over 13 hours the very first day I wore them. Fabulous! My feet were happy. I was happy. Normally I wear a 10 M but decided to go with the 9.5 W. Great fit! Great heel height for us girls who can no longer wear the 3" and above fashion shoes. Try them!
I ordered these shoes in my normal size 8M, and the straps across the toes are so stiff that they rubbed just by putting them on. There is no way they would soften up enough to wear these shoes even for a few minutes. I gave them one star only because they are actually cute looking shoes. HOWEVER, what good is cute if they are uncomfortable??
Save your money!! These shoes should be a higher quality of comfort and better quality of the straps for this price! Very annoying as now I have to pay the return postage!
Not Quite for Me
I was soooo looking forward to putting them on my feet because they are cute. Unfortunately, they arent working out for me. I wear a lot of Clark shoes so I was expecting the same comfortability and I didn't find it in these shoes. Perhaps my arch isnt high enough because it was that area of the shoe was hard on my feet.
Lightweight, stylish, great fit! Glad I purchased them. I got the brown. It's a nice rich chocolate brown.
Pretty and Feminine Shoe
This is my first lifestride shoe purchase as adult. I purchased this particular shoe in the metallic option size 9. My standard shoe size is 8 1/2 medium and I sized up after watching the shoe presentation. The models with thinner feet (not narrow, just less fleshy) look most like mine and some of the girls toes were just too close to the edge for my comfort. I think if I had ordered an 8 1/2, then I would have been disappointed.
The size 9 fits the length of my foot well. I have some wiggle room at the top of the vamp, not enough to make me feel like I'm going to fall out of the shoe. The modified t-strap stabilizes the rest of my foot. Besides, it's not Lifestrides fault that my feel are not fleshy :-).
The heel is faux cork (I must have missed that in the presentation). There is a material that is glued on the heel to give an appearance that the heel is cork. I hope that part of the design holds up during the summer.
All in all, a feminine and pretty shoe that will look nice with dresses and skirts.
cute and comfortable
Just received them and wore them for the first time...I think they are very cute and comfortable and for me fit fine in my usual 7 1/2 size.
Runs a Little Small
I like these shoes ok, but they run a little small. It seems the foot bed is a little narrow. I am sending these back for either a 1/2 size larger or maybe a wider foot bed. Life Stride is one of my favorite brands of shoe and I don't normally have to size up.
