Sam Edelman 'Serena' Sandal
I agree with a previous reviewer that the ankle strap is a bit too wide. If it was just a bit thinner it would be perfect. It does feel a little bit like shackles around your ankles and feels slightly uncomfortable because the metal buckle on the strap rests right on my ankle bone.
But the shoe is so pretty I''m willing to overlook those details. It's very flattering (I got the nude) and the gold details make the shoe! I can't wait to wear these out.
Annoying Strap and Damaged Floor Model Sent
This shoes are adorable when you open up the box. I was so excited to get them.
When I tried the shoe on I loved them but after one step I knew I could keep them. The zipper on the back of the shoes rips your ankle apart even after a minute of wear. I couldnt image a whole night in these shoes (ouch!) They look great but hurt way too much to keep.
My second issue is that the store in Iowa sent me the floor sample of the shoe (with the label still attached to the bottom) and with the metallic accents damaged. It looked like someone took sand paper to the 3 metal piece on the left and went to town. So even if I did like the shoes I would have to either return them and wait for a new pair or go down to the store and exchange them. I think this defeats the convenience of buying them online. I used to work at Nordy's and in my department that would not have been acceptable. When you order these or anything online I suggest calling Nordstrom and asking that the floor sample not be sent.
Love this shoe! I did put some shoe tape from Dr. Scholls around the ankle strap. It helps to keep it from rubbing and you can't see it. I received many compliments and it really is a stunning shoe.
shoe fits weird
This shoe is super cute but it fits a little deformed. It is also not comfortable My toes the big toes, are always red after an hour or so. The way it was designed was not right. I like the whole appearance of the shoe and the color, just wish the shoe was designed better around ankles and at the top.
