Warning: Ugly Foot Heavy Post
I can't pretend anymore. I'm just an old lady. Low-heeled sandals are a must for me during the summer! As much as I love to stagger around in stilettos and hop about in heels, with all the casual walking I do it just isn't feasible. I was in the market to replace my Trina Sandals from Sam Edelman because they'd been absolutely destroyed.
|Trina Sandal in Whiskey, Retails: $70|
I purchased these during the Talbot's "Friends and Family Sale" where you could take 30% off your total purchase. At the time I believe these were full price at $119. Now they're on sale for $69.99! You can also apply eBates to your purchase to save some more money.
I got these guys in two colors to match the potential outfits that I would wear. In retrospect, it seems a little wasteful to get two colors like this, but both the colors fit into my wardrobe and I'm happy with how they look and feel.
I'm glad I got these guys on sale, I'm not sure if I would have paid full price for these. They're not poorly crafted, but I don't feel like they scream quality either. These shoes were manufactured in China, the straps are made with real leather, and they've put a light memory foam padding into the sole of the shoe. The memory foam makes the shoe comfortable. I was able to walk around New York City all day without pain, but they're not comparable to Cole Haan soles or anything.
Overall, I would highly recommend these shoes on sale. They're a good, low-heeled, comfortable sandal for the summer! They don't scream too "old lady" and I can easily incorporate the colors and styles into my current wardrobe. In addition to the two colors I bought, the Peggy Sandal also comes in Indigo Blue and Black as well.
I hope this helps!
