Aerosoles Wide Eyes Casual Thong Sandals
LOVED the look of this shoe...had to buy the pewter/silver color! Bought it, and was sorry! The straps are stiff and very unforgiving! I got blisters on the tops of my feet almost immediately the 1st day I wore these shoes. I tried again after my blisters healed - same outcome! Back in the box, never to return - sad to say I wore them out and can't return them. Oh well, live and learn. I'd save my money and look for something different if I were you.
I had my eye on this shoe for quite awhile - so I finally decided to go for it. I bought the animal print. It is a very attractive shoe - however: it is VERY heavy!! Also - the stability isn't there. I decided to keep it but I will not wear it as often as I originally planned and I do not believe I would take it to the beach or any other vacation. I don't trust the heaviness if I had to walk for a long while.
I have these shoes in 3 colors. They are fantastic and very comfortable!!!
so sorry but
bought these to wear with my motto maxi dress! aerosole's are always soooo comfortable! not these sandles. the upper straps and thong are hard and are just so uncomfortable. sorry i threw the box and paperwork out!! (i paid full price). the one's i got from a large retail/convenience store for much less were soooo much more comfortable. am sooo disappoint!!!!
And not comfortable when I walked I felt that I would fall over at any minute. Not a stable heel. I ordered the gold shoe nice color and that is all.
Not enought foot bed
Got these in giraffe, they look nice in the box. When I put them on I really wanted to like them because I wear a lot of black. I have many thongs sandals and wear them with no problem. These were very comfortable, but my feet looked as if they were sausages in them. I could not figure out what caused them to look this way, I believe it was the extra cushion which would not allow the foot to position itself naturally into the shoe. Just could not like these as much as my other thong sandals. Sent them back.
Second pair, got the brown...I expected a glossy brown, it was a black/brown dull snakeskin print. This after getting the plywood pair. I'm assuming the metllics are better, but I dont need those. Back they go.
I love aerosoles and I purchase them here and on their site. I am a true size 11 1/2 - I can wear in aerosoles some 11's and some 12's. In this shoe, I ordered a size 12 and they fit well. But I prefer my sandals to have room so my shoes don't appear too small. My problem with this shoe is ...the sole. Aerosoles normally has a dark brown rubber sole which I LOVE. This shoe has a plastic like type heel and it was slippery in MY HOUSE....so I knew, for me....if this shoe is slippery in my house...what should I expect when I'm outside on the metro, in the office etc. THE MAIN PROBLEM was the shoe sweeked. I ordered 3 pairs because in MY SIZE RANGE...when I find a shoe that is a low heel, attractive, and a wedge, I order several pairs. Because I know I might NEVER SEE IT AGAIN in "MY SIZE". All 3 pairs sweeked. They had to go back...The padded is comfortable and that is why I love aerosoles but this SOLE was not good for me.
I purchased these shoes in the gold. As others have said, the footbed was soft and cushy. But, the straps and the piece between the toes really cut. It hurt terribly to try to walk just around the house.
Pretty but not comfortable
I really liked these shoes.. The soles & footbeds are wonderful. However, the straps on top that touch your instep are very scratchy and therefore going back. Really made my feet hurt when walking around the house.
Tan? More like plywood.
Bought the tan without realizing that it was a CORK pattern...these look like laminate flooring. I'm reordering in another color, and cork soles are great, but not the uppers.
Beautiful, but not comfortable.
I wish these sandals would have been comfortable. The footbed his fine and cushy. The part that touches the tops of your feet and in between your toes is rough. I am sending them back.
