The stacked heel gives the impression of layers of wood layered on top of each other, giving them a more aesthetic look. The fact that they are thick and chunky is also going to provide you with far more stability than others might with a thinner, stiletto heel.
The rubber sole will work in conjunction with the wave tread pattern on the bottom to provide you with decent traction. You will still have to be careful if you are walking on ice or other slippery surfaces, but it will aid in keeping you upright and preventing you from falling while you're on the go.
On top of the already fantastic midsole, there is a fully padded footbed that is lined in leather, giving you a soft feeling on the bottoms of your feet to help prevent blisters and other uncomfortable sores. These shoes are going to provide you with a decent amount of support under your arches thanks to the padded footbed, pleasing many customers who have high arches and need that extra cushioning.
The leather straps have a soft synthetic lining on the underside of it to give you a more pleasant experience against your skin while you're wearing them. The coating will help prevent against the risk of uncomfortable rubbing and chafing which can lead to blisters or other nasty sores. Additionally, they are going to allow some air to flow under the straps, helping keep the part of your foot that is covered as cool as the rest of your foot and reducing the amount of foot sweat you'll experience which can lead to stinky feet and shoes.
Additionally, thanks to the amazingly constructed midsole you are going to get phenomenal arch support that will mold to your specific foot, giving you the padding that you need where you need it. The moderate arch support works for a vast majority of consumers, keeping your feet happy and comfy throughout the day.
The leather straps and synthetic lining underneath them give you a pleasant feeling along your skin. This may not necessarily bring you comfort, but it is going to help prevent discomfort. The soft staps don't rub uncomfortably on your feet which can lead to nasty sores that most people do not want to deal with.
The fact that they are durable makes the high cost worth the extra money you will pay for them. You're not going to have to replace them for quite a while, allowing the shoes to live in your shoe closet and be part of your wardrobe for quite a while before they need to be replaced.
Unfortunately for many people, there are only three color options available, so there isn't much of a variety. That doesn't deter a lot of customers, but there are some who would have liked a bigger selection. When purchasing the sandals, you can choose between black leather, pale peach leather, or tan leather. Something that you might want to note is that some reviews mentioned that the pale peach looks more like a mauve color and the name of the color can be misleading.
It can be a bit difficult to choose the correct size for the perfect fit when you're ordering your footwear online, as you won't be able to try them on before you purchase them. There are sizing charts online that are available that you can take a gander at to give you an idea of what to order. The problem with that comes with the fact that these particular sandals aren't true-to-size so these charts can be a bit misleading so use caution when you are checking them out.
Not only is it going to be easier to walk, but you will have a better time when you're walking around outside, whether heading to your destination or attending an outdoor event. You're not going to have to use caution while stepping onto the soft ground for fear of your heel sinking down, causing you to fall or break the heel. You are also not going to have to worry about your heels getting caught in cracks in the sidewalk or grates.
