Aquazzura Wild Thing Review
The Colombian born Edgardo Osorio launched his footwear label Aquazzura back in 2011.
Because he was raised in plenty of fashion capitals, it was his living in Italy that inspired him to become a shoe designer. He then enrolled in the London College of Fashion, but quickly dropped out to take a job as shoe and accessories designer at Salvatore Ferragamo.
But do you know that when he was just 23 years old, he was made a head of Roberto Cavalli? Doesn’t that fact make you like an underachiever? What did you do when you were 23?
After launching his own company, he’s currently based in Italy (Florence to be more precise) and soon after the company’s inception even big names like Ivanka Trump started copying his designs. Yup. The Aquazzura Company then filed a lawsuit against the brand of Ivanka Trump back in 2016 for allegedly copying their highly popular “Wild Thing” design of sandals.
And they’re quite similar. The result of that lawsuit is not known to the public but, there’s an old saying… Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
But today, the Aquazzura Wild Thing Sandal is up for a review, and hope you’ll like it.

He wanted to design and produce a shoe that can be worn thou out the entire day without the pressure of discomfort, blistering or cramping. He learned from his mistakes, and decided to implement that demand for comfort in the shoes that he would make in his own company. So Aquazzura took a more different approach, and the results were staggering.
For the first time, there’s a high heel that’s comfortable enough to be worn for more than 45 minutes? Well, it’s possible and it’s all thanks to the quality materials and that renowned Italian craftsmanship that’s dominant in his company. The pineapple adds a nice touch at the bottom of the outsole for a more luxurious and refined feel, but the entire shoe is filled with endless sex appeal and sexy details. Oh and the name perfectly describes the feeling that you have when you’re wearing the sandals. They’re comfortable but the style, elegance is not suffering because of the added comfort. But there are a couple of things that could be improved in this sandal. The first is of course the padding. It would be nice if that padding was more pronounced, and if it was included in the toes area. Seriously. In a high heel that’s so thing and so high, an extra padding in the arches and especially in the toes area would be an amazing improvement. Secondly, those ankle straps. It would have been more practice if that strap was made with a buckle and not with a tied leather straps around the ankle.
But you can’t go wrong when buying the The Wild Thing Sandal. They’ll become your best asset in your shoe closet. And although it doesn’t appear that these are versatile shoes that could transition from day to night, they are. You’ll just fall in love with the comfort, simplicity and durability that the shoes have to offer. Yes, they are more expensive than your regular sandals, but it’s an investment for what you’ll be feeling the returns. Treat yourself with these sandals. Your feet will be saying thanks every time you wear them, and the sexy, confident feeling that you get while wearing them is just an added bonus that comes with the fine design and exquisite craftsmanship. They’re amazing.
