Franco Sarto Dyna Review
Franco Sarto blends comfort, style, and an affordable price point together to make phenomenal shoes that women adore. The primary goal of his products is to make every woman happy, and he excels at this task. He strives to create fabulous looking footwear that is affordable, yet still made out of decent quality materials. This makes for a fantastic product that customers adore. Sarto has been working in the shoe business since he was only 14 years old, starting as a cobbler right outside of Venice, Italy. He fell in love with shoemaking and eventually designed his brand. His attention to detail and exceptional craftsmanship ensures that every shoe he makes gets his stamp of approval.
The Franco Sarto Dyna heels are just another in the long line of his fantastic footwear. The 2.5-inch kitten heels give them enough height for a great look, but not too much that they will cause discomfort throughout the day. Unfortunately, they are only available in peach, but if that color works for your special event, then you will love these pumps. They are comfortable and gorgeous. The best part about them, they have an affordable price tag. These shoes meet all the criteria Sarto strives for, affordable, comfortable, and stylish.
- 2.5-inch kitten heel
- Slip-on slingback design
- Affordable price tag
- Not a lot of cushioning
- The ankle strap is not adjustable
The materials also appear to be pretty well ventilated, which is always a bonus, especially if you are going to be walking around in them for long periods or on warmer days. The air will easily be able to flow through the uppers, keeping your feet fresh throughout the day.
The Franco Sarto Dyna slip-ons feature a 2.5-inch kitten heel. This is a type of heel that looks curvey and is usually relatively short, only a couple inches high. The curve sets the heel in from the back edge of the shoe. It is considered to be a stiletto type heel, as it is a thin and tapering heel. The look became popular by Audrey Hepburn, but it has been seen more recently in fashion thanks to the likes of powerful women such as former first ladies Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Thankfully, these slip-ons can offer you a decent amount of support thanks to the snug fitting vamp and the elastic ankle strap. They will work together to keep your feet secure inside the shoe. All of this, of course, is dependant on you wearing the correct size.
When it comes to your arches, it is unclear on exactly how much support these heels can offer. They do have a lightly padded footbed, but there is no information on how much cushioning resides under your arches. If you find that there is not enough for your feet, you could always opt for some gel inserts to place on the midsole, giving you extra padding where you need it the most.
They have a padded footbed to give you a decent underfoot feeling. The soft materials of the uppers are also going to help give you a more satisfying in-shoe experience, help prevent things such as rubbing and blisters.
The short heel also helps play a small roll in the overall comfort level of the pumps. Even though it thin, the fact that it is short helps keep you more stabilized on your feet. Additionally, since you will not be raised so high off the ground, that is taking some of the pressure off of your forefoot and helping to distribute your weight across your foot more evenly.
When you are placing your order for these pumps keep in mind that they are running true to size so there should be no problems determining what size you should purchase. They do come in half sizes; however, they are not available in wide widths. If you happen to have wider feet, then these might not be the best shoes for you.
If you find yourself looking for a little more added stability, however, you can always opt to purchase some clear heel protectors. They snap onto the bottom of the heels, and since they are clear, they are barely noticeable. They are going to extend the base of the heel, giving you a broader surface to stand on. These are also something you might want to consider if you are going to be attending an outdoor event as they can help prevent you from getting stuck in a crack or sinking into the soft ground.
These pumps are designed more to be worn for more formal occasions and can blend in quite well at a wedding or prom. Overall, the simplistic design of the shoes works really well for them.
Unfortunately, there is not too much information on the exact weight of these heels; however, they are designed out of lightweight materials and have a minimalist construction so we can assume that they are not going to feel too burdensome on your feet. You can twirl around the dance floor with no worries at all.
