Straps

Straps

There is not really a whole lot to the uppers of these dress sandals. They have a strap that comes up covers the forefront of your foot, right above your toes as well as a strap that comes up and wraps around your ankles. The straps are made out of durable leather that you will not have to worry about them breaking, although they do have the tendency to stretch over time. Customers have commented that the leather straps are super comfortable and they feel great on their skin while they are out and about. The ankle strap has a height of about 3.5 inches. It wraps around your ankle and has an adjustable buckle closure that you can use to ensure you get a nice and secure fit.
Heel

Heel

The Dolce Vita Zarita dress sandals are a great pair of shoes with a heel height of about 2 inches, depending on what size you get. You will get a little bit of extra height when you are wearing these which many women can appreciate. The chunky block heel of these sandals is going to give you a more stable base to walk on and a little bit of added comfort. You will not get the thin stiletto heel that many people think about when they hear heels, instead, it is going to have a wider and blocky base which is exponentially easier on your feet when you are planning on standing or walking for extended periods of time.

The chunky heel is ideal for those who might be wearing these for outdoor events, as you will not have to worry about sinking into the ground or having your heels get stuck in grates or cracks which can cause you to fall and injure yourself. The thickness is also going to help ensure they do not break off easily, You will not have to worry about the heels snapping off of these shoes as you might with taller and thinner heels.

Overall, customers are quite pleased with the look and style of the heels of the Dolce Vita Zarita sandals. They blocky heels go very well with the look of the sandals and they give you a little extra stability and comfort.
Durability

Durability

Durability is important when you are buying your shoes. You want to make sure that you get a pair that is going to last. You do not want to spend your money on a pair of sandals and then have to replace them after only wearing them a couple of times. The Dolce Vita Zarita heeled sandals have a hefty price tag and as such, you would expect them to last you quite a while. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. They are not going to fall apart on you, that is true, the problem comes with stretching. Some customers experienced problems with the leather straps stretching out over time which makes the sandals become too big and uncomfortable. This makes them unwearable. So, even though they did not fall apart you would still need to replace them. There are a lot of customers that this did not happen to but you should not that it is a very real possibility when purchasing them.
Versatility

Versatility

There is so much that you can do when wearing the Dolce Vita Zarita dress sandals. They will look great with a great many different outfits. Whether you are attending an outdoor wedding or simply having a shopping day with your friends these great heels are going to fit right in. Some customers choose to pair them with a nice pair of jeans and t-shirt while others prefer pairing them with a more formal dress for a night on the town. No matter what you are doing you will look great doing it in these shoes.
Support

Support

You are going to want to make sure when you are purchasing a pair of dress sandals that you get a pair that is going to offer you a decent amount of support. You want them to fit snugly so your feet will not slide around inside of your shoe which can cause you to fall and hurt yourself. Unfortunately, the Dolce Vita Zarita sandals have some decent support at first but they will eventually wear out and stretch which will cause them to lose that support. As you wear them they straps that once secured your feet in place and kept your feet locked into the sandals will loosen up and give you too much wiggle room.

On the other hand, these sandals do seem to have a moderate amount of arch support thanks to the light cushioned insole of these shoes. They do not offer a whole lot so if you have high arches they might not be the best fit, but they do offer some.
Comfort

Comfort

For the most part, customers believe that the Dolce Vita Zarita heeled sandals are comfortable. There is not a whole lot of padding underfoot, but that does not seem to be too big of a problem for many. If you are going to be on your feet for more than about 6 to 7 hours they might become a bit uncomfortable, but anything short of that should be just fine, according to a few reviewers. The materials of the sandals are soft and feel great on your skin which customers can appreciate, especially since they are designed to wear without socks or stockings.

The biggest issue that people have with the comfort level of these shoes is that they have the tendency to stretch out a little over time and that can cause them to become ill-fitting. They can start to run uncomfortably along your toes and where they strap around your ankle. This can cause uncomfortable and painful blisters and sores. This is not something that happens to all customers but there has been a handful who had this unpleasant experience so it is something that you might want to keep in mind when considering these sandals.
Fit

Fit

When it comes to your shoes you are going to want to make sure that you get the correct size so you can ensure they will be comfortable. You want the shoes to be snug enough that your feet are not going to fall out of the sandals, but at the same time, you will not want them to be so tight that they are going to pinch and cause discomfort. That being said, the Dolce Vita Zarita heeled sandals appear to be running a bit too small and customers have recommended that you purchase a half size bigger than normal to accommodate this. Unfortunately, however, some customers commented that when they went up the half size they fit their feet great at first but then they start to gradually stretch out over time which can cause them to become a little too big at the forefront where to strap sits over your toes.

If you are unsure as to what size you should order to get an optimal fit then it is recommended that you take a look at the sizing chart that is provided. It is better to take a look at the chart before ordering so you can make sure that you have the correct size when you receive your shoes.
Weight

Weight

When it comes to your shoes you are going to want to make sure that you have a pair that is going to be as light as possible. You do not want to have to walk around all day feeling like there are weights attached to your feet. That is not something that you are going to have to deal with when it comes to the Dolce Vita Zarita dress sandals. They have such little materials on the uppers, consisting of only straps, so there is almost no weight there to weigh them down. There is no information on the exact weight of these beautiful heels, but customers can agree that they are lightweight.
Style

Style

Customers really seem to like the look and style of these great sandals. They had a leather strap that comes up around your toes and an adjustable strap that comes up and around your ankles to secure your foot in place. They have a squared block heel that is a little over two inches high, on average, to give you just a little bit of extra height that many people can appreciate. The block heel combined with the look of the blunted toe gives you a nice geometric counterpoint to the arched front strap and the curvy ankle straps. These are a great addition to your summer wardrobe.

You can get these sandals in many different colors so you can have something that will best fit your style and personality. You can get them in black leather, caramel leather, light gold leather, off white leather, red nubuck, or yellow nubuck. Many customers love the look of these sandals so much they will opt to purchase more than one pair in various colors so they have something for every occasion.
Breathability

Breathability

Breathability is very important when it comes to your shoes, you need to make sure that you are getting an adequate amount of airflow to your feet to ensure that you stay cool and dry. Since the Dolce Vita Zarita heels are sandals they are mostly open and therefore can allow for a lot of air to hit your feet. You should have no problem keeping your feet from overheating when you are wearing these shoes, which is perfect since they are a summer shoe and chances are you will be wearing them in the heat. The little bit of material that straps around your ankle and your toes is not going to allow for a lot of ventilation, as they are made out of leather, but that is not going to be too big of a deal since you have the rest of your foot open to the air.
Bottom Line

Bottom Line

If you are in the market for a good pair of dress heels that will look good with almost anything you wear then you have come to the right place. The Dolce Vita Zarita heeled sandal is a comfortable strappy shoe that will look great at a semi-formal event as well as a casual get together, it is a must-have addition to your summer wardrobe. Coming in a variety of different colors many customers opt to purchase more than one pair so they really do have something for everything. The biggest downfall to these shoes is that the straps will stretch after time, which is not so bad with the ankle strap as it is adjustable, but the front strap becomes a problem. If that stretches too badly it can cause you to lose some of your support and can lead to some great discomfort. Some customers, but not all, have complained about some uncomfortable and irritating rubbing and blisters caused by the straps, so this is something that you might want to keep in mind when purchasing. All of that being said, these really are an all-around great pair of heels that many customers would recommend.
