Additionally, they have a 10mm sheepskin lining under the vamp to keep your foot cozy and comfy all day long. The soft lining helps reduce the risk of irritating chafing and rubbing which can cause painful blisters. Customers have not had any problems with rubbing when it comes to these sandals.
Durability

Durability

When it comes to your sandals you are going to want to try to find something that is going to last. You do not want to have to spend all of your hard earned money on a pair of shoes only to have them fall apart shortly after you purchase them, having to replace them so soon. The UGG Royale Graphic Metallic sandals are not the cheapest shoes on the market and as such you are not going to want to have to replace them for quite some time. The good news is that you will not have to. They might have a relatively high price tag but they are worth the money customers spend on them. The great quality materials and good construction ensure that they are not going to suffer from premature wear and tear, giving them a long lifespan that customers can appreciate.
Flexibility

Flexibility

Flexibility is super important when it comes to what you choose to put on your feet. You want to make sure that you have something that is going to give you the freedom to move your feet as freely and naturally as possible while you are on the go, you do not want to feel like your movements are being restricted and that is not something that you will have to worry about when it comes to these sandals. The Treadlite by UGG outsole of the shoes allows for a fantastic amount of flexibility to them so you can be assured that they will bend with your feet with each step you take. No need to feel like your feet are stuck in prison while wearing these great sandals.
Outsole

Outsole

The outsole of these great sandals features UGG's signature Treatlite sole. This is going to ensure that you are going to get an amazing amount of durability, flexibility, traction, and comfort while wearing the shoes.

The main component in the sole is rubber which is strong and durable, you will not have to worry too much about these falling apart on you any time soon. Additionally, the rubber sole is going to ensure that you get a decent amount of traction while you are out and about. As these are a pair of casual sandals you should not be venturing out too far off the beaten path with these, but as long as you are sticking to relatively flat and more non-abrasive surfaces then you should have no problem keeping their grip. Whether you are stepping on dry land or you hit a wet patch, the outsole of these shoes should be able to hold quite the grip to help keep you on your feet.

The Treadlite sole also gives you a great deal of elasticity allowing for amazing flexibility, as mentioned above, but also gives you a decent amount of underfoot cushioning and responsive ride for a little spring in your step. Overall, customers love the soles of these sandals and everything they have to offer.
Midsole

Midsole

There is not really much of a midsole in the UGG Royale Graphic Metallic sandals, most of the cushioning and comfort comes from the above-mentioned outsole. What these do have, however, is a wonderfully shaped footbed that is designed to cradle your foot to give you a super comfortable and pleasant underfoot experience. Thanks to the great shape and design of the footbed, these shoes do offer you a decent amount of arch support which is much appreciated by a great many customers.
Style

Style

The UGG Royale Graphic Metallic sandals have an interesting look to them that people tend to either love or hate. They are very eye-catching, as they have a metallic sheen to them so they definitely stand out in a crowd, although most people who order them because of that reason. There are a few comments from people saying that they would have liked to have seen them in more muted and 'normal' colors if that happened they might not have the same appeal to their current clientele. The name says it all, they are metallic looking and they shine.

They have three color options that you can choose from when purchasing the sandals. You can get all black, a white sole with a gold vamp, or a white sole with a silver vamp. The uppers of the shoes, no matter what color you decide to go with, has the UGG logo debossed on it.

Customers have mentioned that these shoes look great with most of their wardrobe. Whether pairing them with some blue jeans or a nice summer skirt they will fit right in. They are casual shoes and as such should stay out of the office and might not fit in at a fancy dinner, but heading to the pool, running errands, or simply hanging out with friends are perfect occasions for these great looking shoes.
Uppers

Uppers

The uppers of the UGG Royale Graphic Metallic sandals consists, simply, of a thick band that covers the forefront of your foot. They have an open toe and an open back. The upper is made out of synthetic metallic materials to give it shimmer and shine that most customers like. The best part about the uppers, however, comes in the form of the sheepskin lining underneath it. The thick, 10mm, layer of sheepskin gives you a super soft and comfortable feeling on your feet that you will love.

On a negative note, the uppers do not allow for very good ventilation. It should not be too much of a problem because most of your foot is exposed, to begin with, and can get a decent amount of air, but the part of your foot that is covered by the sheepskin is going to get warm and sometimes uncomfortably so. It is easy enough to slip your feet out of the sandal to get some air to them, but some people might not be in a position where that is a possibility. This is just something to keep in mind when making your purchase.
Weight

Weight

The UGG Royale Graphic Metallic sandals are designed using lightweight materials so you can ensure that you are going to have a pair of shoes that are rather light. The key is to find a pair of shoes that are going to be as light as possible so you will not feel like you are walking around with weights on your feet that are holding you back and slowing you down. That is not something that you will have to worry about with these shoes.

These sandals weigh in, on average, at a mere 4 ounces which are on the low end of the spectrum when compared to some other similar products on the market these days. Please note that this weight is based on a size 8 medium and is only for one shoe, not the pair.
Fit

Fit

They way your shoes fit is important to your comfort level while wearing them. You want to make sure that your feet fit into your shoes snugly enough that your feet will not slide around too much and slip out of the shoe, but at the same time you do not want to have the vamp cut into your feet uncomfortable either. On the same note, you want to make sure your feet fit nicely on the platform, you do not want any part of your feet hanging over the edge not do you want too much extra room. It can be a fine line, finding the perfect fit.

For the most part, customers are saying that the UGG Royale Graphic Metallic sandals are running just a little bit too small and they would recommend going up a size to ensure that you get the correct fit the first time you order them so you do not have to deal with the hassle of having to return them and reordering a better size. If you do not know what size you should order then it recommended that you take a quick peek at a sizing chart just to make sure.
Support

Support

When it comes to your footwear of choice you are going to want to make sure you get a decent amount of support for the task at hand. Since the UGG Royale Graphic Metallic sandals are a more laid back and casual pair of shoes you are not going to need a whole lot of support, not nearly as much as you would need if you were looking at work boots or running shoes.

You will get a decent amount of support while wearing these shoes. It might not seem like it because they only have one strap across your foot, but as long as you get the correct fit you will not have to worry too much about your feet slipping and sliding around which could potentially cause you to fall and hurt yourself or someone else. You will get as much of a locked-in feel as you can in this type of sandal.

As for arch support, you will get a decent amount thanks to the contoured footbed. The shoe is designed to cradle your foot and give you the support you need where you need it the most. Customers seem to agree that they feel great under their arches.

They feature UGG's Treadlite sole to give you a phenomenal amount of comfort, flexibility. long-lasting durability, and traction. The amount of underfoot cushioning mixed with the 10mm sheepskin lining and molded footbed all work together to make sure that your feet stay happy and comfy all day long.

If you do decide to purchase these shoes keep in mind that some customers mentioned that they are running a bit small so pick your size accordingly. Overall, these are an all around great pair of sandals that customers adore.
