These sandals are beautiful, the bone color is rich and the gold medalian is nice not cheap. But wow your toes will kill you. Mine did. There is a piece of plastic that goes along the toe band, and of course the heel pushes the foot forward and for me, it got painful walking even a little in these shoes. I wore them first time for a nice out and didn't think I could return them, or I would have. If the sandals had been stacked that would have helped. A shame such a nice shoe but so painful. Anyone who can say these are comfy, hats off for having tough feet!
