And the outsole in the Harper model does that. The leather outsole is thin and barely noticeable, but you can feel her presence all the way through. It blends well with the rest of the shoe, and it lows awesome. Oh and let’s not forget that four inch high chunky heel, that let you walk in comfort and style. The sturdy block heel pairs perfectly with the busy embellishments of the strap, and provides a great balance between the shiny exterior of the upper.
Oh that beautiful thick toe strap. Filled with crystal embellishments, clustered rhinestones on the entire surface of the sandal, the embellishments add glamour to what otherwise would be a very dull shoe. And the thing is, the team behind Badgley Mischka’s designs knew when to stop with the embellishments. They could have put the rhinestones in the thing straps as well, and at the back of the block heel, but there’s a fine line between stylish and tacky. No the shoes have the right amount of embellishments without looking tacky, and they make one fantastic pick for your evening outings.
Made from satin, both the thick strap at the toe area, and the thinner ankle straps gibe your feet a lovely silhouette and elongate your legs in a more elegant way.

But the one thing that would make these sandals a whole lot better is if the midsole was reinforced with a dash of padding. Just a light padding in the midsole would have made these sandal even more comfortable that they’re now. With the thick chunky heel and the sturdy ankle straps they’re comfortable as they are, but a padding in the midsole would have made all the difference. The ladies wearing them would have had a lot of support in the arches, and walking in these heels would have been even a lot more pleasant. But although a bit expensive, this is one of the best purchases that you can make for yourself. The Badgley Mischka Harper is a fantastic shoe that looks good on just about anybody.
