B Brian Atwood Reviews
Reviewer: Robin from New York, NY
Overall: Comfort: Style:
When I saw the pink color of these sandals it was love at first sight. I received them today and while the pink is every bit as delightful as I expected, other parts of the sandal aren't quite right, mainly the gold over the heel. Now, the gold heel is what makes these sandals unique I guess, but there's something a little cheesy about it, like I should be headed for the night club on the Love Boat. There was something else, however, that actually broke the camel's back for me—the way they smell. It's literally like they were worn by someone pumping gas at Chevron for days and days. Probably if you air them out the smell will dissipate, but be prepared for it if you order these shoes, at least the pink ones. They do fit true to size; I wear a 9.5 to or a 10 and the 10 fit like a glove and seemed like it would be comfortable. The large covered buckle and wide straps are very well done, too. It seems a shame to be using Brian Atwood's equity this way. The least they could do is drop the price by $20; this shoe looks like it's trying to look expensive. At $160 + tax it's overpriced.
