I really love sandals. There, I said it. Perhaps not the most glamourous of footwear, but comfy and shows off painted toenails a treat. Over the last few years the trend has been in my favour - lots of sandals with just a toe post and no back to them. Perfect. I have a size 10 wide (oaf) feet and that design works for me.
Except they have a mangle of straps that are supposed to go over the top of your foot and clearly the designers have not thought about oaf feet when they supplied the straps. The straps are about 4 inches (9-ish centimetres) too short. I have a lovely thing on my foot, but I can’t do it up. Irritating. Surely the fact that someone has bought a size 10-wide means that the rest of the foot is also larger and isn’t a weird flat shape - i.e. the length of an overgrown woman and the height of a prepubescent 8 year old.
Another shoe sadly consigned to the charity shop. Shame really as I saw a lady the other day wearing the same sandal. With jeans and a cute top, she looked amazing. I was looking forward to emulating the look, but clearly shoe designers (as ever) hate us…
