As I mentioned the "End of Summer Sales" are a gift for those of us that shop mark-downs and enjoy beautiful clothing. I love shoes! So when I found the above sandal on sale at Macy's last week, they were a must have item.
I have an unusually high instep and most shoes that have anything that goes over/around the top of the foot will be unconformable. Most female cut shoes are made for a low instep. In the past I have resorted to either custom made sandals or having my local shoe shop raise the straps. Both options are expensive.
The only benefit to high arch/high instep is that actually I, "feel better with heeled shoes over flats". I just learned this at ProFoot. Very interesting - That explains much.
I was very pleased with the above shoes because they fits perfectly across my foot and are very comfortable. They are also super cute. I tried on the tan sandal for size but my local Macy's did not have them in white. It was available on-line at 67% off its original price. A really good price for such an attractive sandal.
Here are the details from Macy's - Michael Kors Holly Sandals in white, acorn (tan), and black. The price varies by color form $40.23 to $55.93.
I have since found them at the Michael Kors site, "HOLLY ROPE-TRIM SANDAL" for 29.00, also in a variety of colors including metallic - gold or silver.
Here is a further description from the Kors site:
Tie the knot—our Holly sandals are your new sole mates. Natural rope trim, metallic jelly straps and a smooth footbed combine to laid-back-luxe effect. This versatile style can be worn on the weekend with myriad looks.
I will get a lot of casual wear out of these cute sandals. Enjoy!
