First of all I really, really liked the look of these sandals
. And yes, I am a guy who wears woman's shoes regularly! I just loved the style and the look of these thongs
, very attractive (but I wish the heel was a bit chunkier). That's why I got them, in spite of the average to poor reviews at Zappos and elsewhere. The fit was a bit to small for me, but acceptable and they really looked nice!! But on closer examination, the construction does look shoddy, as others have commented. Because of the price, and the fact that they were a bit small, and did not come in a size 12, I have sent them back. Bummer, 'cause they really looked nice and I had been hoping to be able to wear them for summer!! But not to be dismayed, I have ordered a pair of Annie Venice and Vienna sandals
, they look nice too, will see how they work out! Zappos is the BEST!
