Isaac Mizrahi Live! Espadrille with Starfish Ornamentation
I thought these shoes were super cute when I saw them online.. When I got them and put them on the first thing I noticed was it felt like there was something poking one of my toes. Well sure enough there is some kind of nail head sticking up thru the shoe that I can't remove unless I take the sole out. Strike one. Furthermore they were extremely narrow. Mind you my foot is not wide in any way at all but these shoes were almost too narrow to put my foot into. Strike 2. They ha no cushion whatsoever. I may as well have been walking barefoot on cement. They were so uncomfortable and unbearable I couldn't possibly even dream of wearing something like that for a whole day let alone a couple hours. Strike three.
Next time I'll think twice before buying shoes online.
ADORABLE many compliments
Comfortable and cute. Received compliments. Love them enough to purchased a pair in turquoise and pink.
really uncomfortable shoe
I read all of the reviews - but I thought that my experience with the shoe would be different.
The shoe is exactly all of the things described in all of the other reviews: very tight toe bed, heel that does not stay in place, etc.
I ordered the show and now need to return!
Smashing Starfish Shoe!
This shoe just evokes the seaside especially in the turquoise! LOVE IT but did move up a half size. Very comfy with the padded insole but canvas fabric heel back does tend not to stay on well as others mentioned. Remedy: stick on heel cushions add the rigidity it needed. In any event, a pretty & unique canvas summer shoe! Hope to see them in more colors for Spring 2013!
These are uniquely cute and a style that you may not see everywhere. After reading the reviews and after finding that my size wasn't available, I sized up 1/2 size and inserted heel pads that curve around the top of the heel to help with preventing slipping. A plus to the comfort is a fairly padded footbed, but the toe box is small. I enjoyed wearing them to a casual dinner during a beach vacation w/ white leggings and a turquoise print terry tunic. They're fun for beach trips or anytime during the summer. Sizing may be tricky...but I wouldn't size down.
The reviews written about squished toes, heel won't stay up, etc. - pay attention, all true!
Now I understand what they were describing. There is enough fabric in the heel but because the trim around the top is not real leather with no give, the heel will not stay up because the trim won't allow it.
Everything that can be wrong with a shoe is wrong with this shoe.
Isaac, I really thought you would have better quality than this.
Starfish on my toes make me happy
What fun to go to the beach in pink shoes and star fish. You will love these for summer, and vacations to warm places in winter. Thank you Isaac, for sharing the fun.
I love these shoes I got the pink and blue...unfortunately the starfish on the pink fell off the first time I wore them because they are poorly sewn on instead of glued on also as other people mentioned the heel is wider but I put in heel grips and they worked fine. I repaired my shoes with hot glue and hope the starfish stays put will also reenforce my other pair with hot glue....I still love wearing these shoes because they are so cute.....I just hope that Isaac does some quality control on all his shoes etc, had to give 4 stars because I like them so much but they are really a 3 star item
Love these shoes!!!Great fit and the starfish is adorable!!!
Isaac is the best!!
Fit Me Fine
I have a kinda narrow foot and these shoes fit fine and are soooooo cute, I ordered my second pair. Just take a chance cause if they fit you you will love them. I got the #7 Med. and think I'll get the third color too. Go for It!!!!
Wanted to love these.....but
the soles have absolutely NO "give" to them so my heel slips out on the second step. My starfish were in perfect condition and the colors (black & pink) were good. The pink is a really pretty color.....I'm so VERY disappointed to not be able to keep these.
Not flexible at all
I thought these were such a darling design, color, embellishment. But these shoes just would not bend!! They were impossible to walk in, so they had to go back. Very disappointing.
