Sam Edelman Olette Review
With over 30 years of experience in the footwear Industry, Sam Edelman and his wife, Libby Edelman, started their second brand, inspired by their love of travel and adventure. In starting this brand, the Edelman’s successfully created comfortable shoes that are also trendy and durable. Each pair comes with quality material, a youthful appearance, and versatility. Sam Edelman shoes combine sophistication and sensibility in the perfect way. No matter the design, this brand always puts its focus on comfort and quality above all else.
These boots are sure to catch others’ attention with their pointed toe and curved seams. The Olette Fashion Boots run slightly small, so if you’re just barely fitting into a size eight, consider ordering a half size up. Some people have also reported that these boots are not very wide, so they have been ordering a half size up and/or wearing them with socks at first to loosen them up. There is a side-zip closure that allows for putting your feet in and taking them out with ease. The heel is approximately three and a half inches high-high enough to look elegant, but not so high that they are unstable or uncomfortable. These boots may seem a bit pricey to some people, but that is due to the fact that they are made with high-quality haircalf leather; making them well worth the price. Whether you’re wearing these for business or pleasure, a casual grocery trip or a fancy cruise, they’re sure to be a hit among all (men, women, young, old). You’ll feel nothing but confidence when you’re walking around in these simple, yet stunning boots.

The women who wear these boots all agree that what you get is what you paid for, and what you get is great. These boots are the total package of comfort, style, quality, and durability. Women have liked the boots so much that they have decided to order more in other colors. It’s hard to argue that these boots aren’t at least worth a shot.
Some women have said that the boot was a little snug at the opening; so they have used a hairdryer to warm the material and stretch it, along with putting on thick socks. The synthetic soles mean more flexibility, which means minimal break-in time. The soles also provide some extra stability and shock absorption. Overall, women rave about the comfort of these boots almost as much as they do about the style.
With Sam Edelman, you are paying for products that the owners have put a lot of hard work and care into; making sure that they provide high quality and lasting comfort at an affordable price. They may use a more expensive material in one area, but make up for it but using a cheaper material elsewhere (never skimping on quality). Not to mention the fact that their shoes are always keeping up with the latest fashion trends. For boots that come with the total package, such as these, you can’t beat the price.
The Edelman’s home in Connecticut reflects their love for horses and horseback riding, and it was horse riding that led Sam back to the footwear industry. He suffered an accident in 2001 that led to the beginning of the Sam Edelman brand. Sam and Libby are constantly challenging the mold and putting out high-quality shoes at reasonable prices. Libby is the main visionary during the designing process; she picks a destination for inspiration at the beginning of every season. Sam and Libby attribute most of their success to their ability to roll with the punches and adjust to
an always-changing market where companies are popping up and burning out constantly.
Synthetic soles are most commonly made from natural rubber, PVC (polyvinyl chloride compounds), or polyurethane. These types of soles are intended for more rigorous activity, so they are more durable. They are able to look elegant when the occasion arises, so long as the sole remains thin (as it does with this boot). One of the best advantages of synthetic soles is that they are more versatile, less expensive, and becoming more of a niche item. They are much less expensive because they don’t require as much preparation or labor to produce.
Then we have the sassy pointed toes and the three and a half inch heels that make statements of their own without taking away from comfort. The shaft height is just right, so that it provides some ankle support, without compromising on style. They’re also the perfect height to wear with any bottoms, short or long. These boots are water resistant, durable, flexible, comfortable, affordable, and fashionable. These boots are able to provide high quality at an affordable price the Edelman’s design their shoes with quality and price in mind. They use less expensive materials without sacrificing the quality of the product to provide you with the best. There’s really no reason to not try these beautiful boots from Sam Edelman.
