Pretty but could be better.
Don't get me wrong, I like these sandals and believe they will match my wedding dress perfectly. It was very difficult for me to find a pair of flat shoes I liked for my wedding. You can tell the soles are made well, full leather. The gems - albeit plastic, shimmer beautifully in the sunlight. I'd say the price is a little steep, but with a wedding - everything is.
Be warned, they do fit funny. The straps are a bit high between the toes and at the ankle. I feel like the sandal is not 'secured' on my foot. This is alleviated if you slide the straps from the base closer to the gems on the ankle strap. It makes for a tighter fit. I may even put a stitch in there to keep the straps from sliding around. I can't be bothered to return the shoes as I really can't find anything else I like that isn't a ridiculous price. In short, if you are ordering your typical size, order a 1/2 size smaller.

Stones fell off during first wear - at my Wedding!
These shoes looked so lovely and I ordered them to wear at my wedding. By the afternoon the plastic stones had fallen off of the shoes on both sides and the shoes are now unwearable. The metal holding the stones is in very flimsy and bends/breaks easily. I would not recommend these sandals as the cost is WAY too high for a product that didn't even last the day. It was embarrassing to walk with these shoes on all day with missing stones.

I waited in anticipation for these sandals to arrive. It's a very pretty sandal, but what really let me down was that the "crystals" are not crystals, not even glass, they are PLASTIC. That was really disappointing because you can tell the rest of the sandal is made of good quality materials.
I had to return these sandals because it seems they run big (I'm usually a 7 1/2 or 8 but the 8 was way too big). I'm still on the fence on whether I should get a smaller size. I would have immediately exchanged them for a smaller size. But, I feel the price is unfair considering the stones are plastic and seem like they could fall off after some time.
