Less comfortable than I’d hoped

These look amazing, particularly with harem pants. I’ve only been able to wear them a few times around the house as after an hour or two they really rub and cause blisters. The insides are now covered with thick plasters to try to reduce the rubbing but the thought of wearing them in the heat is quite off putting with that in mind but I will persevere! As for sizing, I measured my foot and the shoe size given in the listing and chose 4.5, which is my standard shoe size, but they were too small to get the zips done up at the back so I changed them for a 5.5 which is perfect. So I’d recommend buying one size up. It may just be that this shoe shape doesn’t suit my feet, as the other reviews are so positive. I must say though, that the soles are super squidgy and lovely to walk in.

These are a softer leather than I expected, based on some reviews. They look sturdy and comfortable for everyday use. I think they’ll be perfect for the warmer weather.

They certainly attract a lot of positive interest. My only regret I that I bought them quite late in the year, but can't wait for Spring/Summer next year.

I love these!

I was worried they'd chafe because leather (they do a tiny bit, but then they are new shoes), but they're really comfy. I'm usually a size 7, which was too small in these, entirely because the zip wouldn't go over my ankles. I now have them in a Size 8 and they fit great! I haven't worn them a huge amount yet but really like them. They look amazing, too.

Cloud like sole

The sole is very cloud like and soft but I found the leather a little hard, the good thing about the sandals is that you can adjust the width. Great buy but be warned the leather isn't as soft and they do look great..

love wearing my new Gladiator Sandals.

First time they seemed bit stiff as I normally wear very worn soft shoes but didn't take long to feel comfortable and now I love wearing them!
