Heel

Heel

These Edelman’s boast a gorgeous four-inch heel that looks amazing with practically any style of clothing. But don’t freak out just yet! Despite the Yaro’s towering heel height it’s relatively easy to walk on thanks to its chunky width. This pair was constructed with a block-heel which is wider than your average spike and much easier to walk on. While this design was popular in times long past some ladies think that this look is outdated. Au contraire - it’s made a comeback in a huge way!

High heels can cause all sorts of issues with your body by changing the way you stride. This can put unnatural pressure on the forefoot or cause hip and back pain because of the shift in weight when you walk. But a block heel has none of these negative effects! It offers a stylish alternative to the painful stiletto’s you've become accustomed to.
Materials

Materials

The Yaro is crafted from a fabulous combination of fabrics that help to make it luxurious to wear. Choose from materials like suede, silk, leather, and cork for a look that’s truly tailored to your tastes. It’s so empowering being able to pick and choose between more than one or two choices of materials because it lets you opt for a pair that’s going to convey your sense of style to the world. The Yaro’s synthetic footbed is very comforting and helps to keep odors to a minimal. It works by drawing excess moisture away from the skin to prevent a build-up of sweat and odor-causing bacteria.
Fastening

Fastening

These heels offer a petite buckle closure that’s oh-so-cute! Buckles are a good choice for this style of shoe because they’re very feminine while also adding a sensual vibe. The great thing about this style of closure is that it allows you better control over the fit thanks to its adjustable design. While laces and zip closures are also great choices, a buckle has something more alluring about it.
Style

Style

This pair of strappy sandals offer a seductive style that’s perfect for nearly any occasion! Its open-toe concept and ankle strap design make for an effortlessly-chic appearance that is sure to turn more than a few heads when you enter the room. A four-inch block heel only makes them more enticing but still lets you walk with ease, unlike a stiletto. This pair comes in all sorts of stunning patterns and colorways, not to mention you get to choose from several different fabrics too.

Colorways

Colorways

The Yaro is the kind of heel that literally comes in every color! In fact, there are so many choices it’s hard to pick just one. Whether shiny metallics or naked nudes are your things, there’s a pair of these Sam Edelman’s to meet your needs. Choose from colors like pink orchid patent, purple iris velvet, silver/gold leopard, and nude leopard just to name a few. As you can imagine owning more than just one pair of these is quite probably because it’s so hard not to fall in love with every shade.

Accessories

Accessories

They say the devil is in the details, though the Yaro is anything but problematic! These heels take a minimalistic approach to accessories but that doesn’t stop them from looking totally fly. With a simplistic single strap across the toes and a wraparound ankle strap that comes to a buckled closure, these pumps are anything but average! Their wide array of colorways helps to add some serious versatility to these already smoking shoes.
Footbed

Footbed

In true Sam Edelman style, the Yaro boasts logo detailing along the insole and a minimal one-inch platform. This makes for a more comfortable and equally as stylish design that will have you falling head over heels in no time. Its lightly cushioned build makes for more enjoyable wear and helps to prevent foot and leg pain by padding the delicate underside of the foot. Without proper protection for this sensitive area, you will be more likely to suffer from pain in the heel and arch, as well as, lower back discomforts. Your feet will also feel less fatigued after long periods of wear because they’ll be resting on a pillow-like surface rather than an unpleasantly hard one.
Versatility

Versatility

One of the things I love about this pair is how truly versatile it can be! With the plethora of colorways and being able to pick from several types of materials - it just makes buying them feel so much more personal. The great thing about them is how amazing they look with practically any outfit! I mean, you can wear these heels to a wedding, business gathering, or on your next club hop. Try matching them with a pair of skinny jeans or a slim fitted dress, the possibilities are limitless. Its buckle closure system only adds to the adaptability factor because it puts the control back in your hands and lets you adjust the fit exactly to your liking.
Fit

Fit

There are mixed opinions when it comes to how well this pair fits. Most wearers found that the shoe runs true to size, but some ladies had an issue with the width. It seems that if you have a narrower foot you won’t have any issues, but for those with a wider structure, you might feel a bit cramped. This was mainly felt in the toe area and affected the pinky toe for the most part. If this happens to you, try to stretch out the material by placing something slightly larger than the toe area through the strap and leave it there overnight. This should let the fabric stretch just enough to make room for your pinky toe but shouldn’t affect the way the shoe looks.
Traction

Traction

While the cute ‘Sam Edelman’ print logo along the sole is a plus, the traction it provides is not! Despite a failed attempt to offer some grip, this pair fails to impress. If you’re planning on walking on slippery surfaces be extra careful to not take a tumble. These heels have no tread whatsoever which leaves the wearer vulnerable to accidents. The material used almost sticks to surfaces, if you will, but lacks the kind of hold that’s needed to keep you upright.
Bottom Line

Bottom Line

Overall, the Yaro is one hot pair of heels! Its designer vibes and sultry physique make this a must-have pair for fashionable ladies. Sam Edelman promises big things from these pumps and delivers in a massive way. A chunky block heel and low half-inch platform make for easy walking, while a towering four-inch heel adds some serious sexuality. Despite its super-high structure, the block-shaped heel is much easier for walking than most other styles because of its wider shape.

Its many colorways make this an effortless choice that can adapt to any style of clothing. You’re able to choose from one of several upper fabrics which really helps to make this heel feel uniquely your own. Ladies love the way these pumps look with practically anything in their wardrobe and with all of the options available you could wear a different pair for every day of the month.

Wearers have mixed emotions on how well this pair fits with some feeling it’s perfect and others who think it’s a little tight. Most women agree that it runs true to size but some feel it can be snug in the toe and actually press on the pinky toe causing discomfort. It’s also a bit on the slippery side because the sole offers little in the way of traction. But besides these small issues, it’s a pretty fabulous pair of high heels.
