Franco Sarto Vickie Review
Franco Sarto got its start in the outskirts of Venice, Italy when a young Sarto started working as a cobbler at the mere age of 14, developing his love for the craft. He strives to make every woman happy, excelling at this goal. His amazing footwear blends comfort and style with the cherry on top being an affordable price tag. He can deliver a great looking shoe that gives you incredible comfort, all while keeping the price tag to an affordable price. His excellent attention to detail and remarkable craftsmanship ensures that every pair of shoes they make gets his stamp of approval.
The Vickie is just another pair of heels in his long line of women’s shoes. They feature a 1-inch block heel, giving you some added height while still providing you with stability and comfort. They look amazing, the slingback design and the pointed toe gives them a classic look that blends in well during most occasions. Whether going to the office or attending a wedding, these pumps will look great and fit right in. Customers love the versatile look and the affordable price, making them a great choice.
Affordable price tag
Stable and supportive
Adjustable slingback strap
Only a few color options
Not a true kitten heel
They are supposedly considered to be a kitten heel; however, that is not the case with these shoes. They have a more of a chunky heel to them, as opposed to a stiletto type heel you would get from a kitten. This is going to be more beneficial to many customers as it will provide you with far more stability and support, having the broader base of the heel itself. If you are looking for a true kitten heel, unfortunately, these are not going to be a good match for you and might want to consider looking elsewhere.
Additionally, they have a smooth human-made lining in them that gives you a pleasant feeling against your skin while you are walking in the pumps. This is going to help prevent against some uncomfortable rubbing and blisters under your feel while you are out and about.
The heels feature an adjustable slingback strap that goes around your ankle to keep you in your shoes. The adjustable buckle allows you to have a more customizable fit for optimal comfort.
The padded footbed provides you with a little bit of arch support, but there might not be a whole lot there. If you're someone who has high arches, then they might not be the best fit for you. You can always opt to add in some gel inserts under your arches to give them a higher comfort level and added support, but right out of the box they leave much to be desired.
You'll be able to take advantage of comfort underfoot thanks to the lightly padded footbed. Of course, as mentioned previously, they are not going to provide nearly as much as some others might, but there is enough cushioning present to keep your feet from aching at the end of the day. The heel will also play a decent role in your comfort. The thick heel helps distribute your weight more evenly, taking some of the pressure off of your heels while you are standing or walking for long periods, giving you an overall better underfoot feel than you would if you were wearing true kitten heels with a stiletto point.
The Franco Sarto Vickie's have a relatively low price tag so many will expect them to wear down after a short time, although that does not always seem to be the case. There are, of course, some people who are not going to be happy and will have poor experiences with them, but for many, they will have a decent lifespan. As long as you don't abuse your shoes, they are going to last you a fair amount of time and will be a part of your wardrobe for quite some time. Most consumers feel like they got their monies worth out of the heels and were happy with their purchase.
The thick heel is great for those attending any kind of outdoor events as well. You will not have to think about walking in the soft ground, risking sinking down in the grass. You are not going to have to worry too much about getting your heel stuck in cracks or grates, as they are wide enough that they will not quickly get stuck.
Unfortunately for many customers, there are only a couple of color options available. You can purchase the shoes in vanilla (snake print), black leather, peach suede or steel leather. No matter what color you decide to go with, you can be sure to look great.
The Vickie's fit true to size which makes it a little bit easier when deciding what you should purchase. As long as you go with your normal shoe size, then you should have no problems with the way they are going to fit. One of the better features about the heels that customers adore is that they are available for purchase in wide widths. You do not find that a lot of fashion shoes so the fact that these can cater to those with wider than average feet makes them a gem.
