Sam Edelman 'Gracie' Sandal
I love SE shoes...I have multiple pairs of sandals and ballets flats. But I had to return two pairs of these thong sandals because the fit was weird for me. All of my other SE shoes are 7.5, so that's what I ordered first. My heel was barely on the shoe, so I then ordered a size 8.0. This time, my heel was on, but there was way too much room in the toes. Way too much of the sole showing above my toes. I just thought it was weird. My other SE sandals aren't like that, but I just couldn't keep these. Sent both pairs back.
Cute and comfortable
I'm always on the lookout for a quality-made, comfortable sandal to get me through the summer season. Gracie is a good option. I love the calf hair leopard print, but it is a little more on the than side with less black than I would've preferred, but a good neutral nonetheless. The padded footbed is cushy enough and the top stitching on the sole/footbed shows decent workmanship. An earlier reviewer dinged these for the lack of support, but they had about as much support as I would ever expect from a flip flop. The price is right too. These will be cute with jeans, shorts, skirts and maxi dresses throughout the warmer months.
Cute but runs REALLY small
These run almost a size to small. I'm a 6.5 and the 7.5 my foot was at the edge! Overall the sandal is cute though...the leapard kind of gets lost though. Really thin strap
I originally bought the 7.5 because I had another pair of the Gracie sandals in leather in that size. I normally wear a size 7. The 7.5 in these were too big! I called and they sent out a size 7 and they are perfect. I love them!
