Beautiful but flimsy
I ordered these sandals for my wedding and although they were absolutely gorgeous and looked perfect, I also found the quality to be lacking, especially given the $150 price tag. I only wore mine for photos and the ceremony and then changed into different shoes for dancing. The second time I wore mine, several of the jewels fell out leaving them unwearable. Sad, since everything the other items I ordered from BHLDN for my wedding were perfect.

Loved the shoes but very poorly made!
I loved these shoes and they were the perfect shoes for my wedding, they were exactly what I was looking for! However, when I wore them for my wedding I got home that night and realized that 3-4 of the stones had fallen off of each sandal. For the price you spend on these you would think that they would be able to last through a wedding. I was hoping to be able to wear them even after the wedding but I can't now with the stones missing.

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.
