Faux-slide sandal recommendation

A faux-slide recommendation for those who find slides slip off their feet! I have these in the black and after wearing several times (finally, warm weather!) I had to put in a plug for them. Baby wedge, soft material, a little cushioning, and the bands are stretchy elastic. Very comfortable and easy to walk in. I don't find the toe bit bothersome and usually those don't work for me. Runs TTS.

My feet are normal width in the toe box and narrow in the heel and these fit extremely well, and there's enough room for my long toes. I've also got a high arch + high instep; the elastic fits nicely without overly stretching so these might be better suited to average - higher volume feet but miiiiight still be worth a try if you're lower volume because of the narrower heel and stretchy bands. I don't think they would work if you're wide along the whole foot.

They come in three colors -- black, a darker dusty denim blue, and a cool stone/sand. I actually ordered the stone originally hoping they'd be cream and found the color too cool/dusty for me, but it does look quite striking paired with the very warm cognac. The denim shade is a bit darker than the photo shows it, also quite cool and a little dusty. The black seems to be a softer black. Hardware is gold on all three.

I'm super pleased with these! Hopefully helpful for anyone else looking for something similar :)

    Do these actually count as slides Angie? I realized after posting that they might, in fact, actually BE slides. I figured with the little toe doohickey they wouldn't but maybe not.

    Those are adorable and if I weren’t all set with sandals I’d try them. Our feet seem to be a similar shape.

    They look great on you whatever they are called. They sound like a style that might fit my foot.

    These look great.  Thanks for the recommendation. I think I'm going to give them a try

    It's a fine line between a slide and a thong sandal - you choose!

    Great sandals!  I like the outfits you paired them with too.

    Angie, ok cool, I'll stick with slides since they are more substantial ^^

    Elle, I hope they work out for you!!
