I wanted a sandal that had some pink to it, as I'm fair-skinned and natural colored leather ends up not looking quite right on me. I was worried that this shoe (in Nude) might end up being more beige, but the picture is true to color and the shoe is a very nice, natural shade of pink, with a very subtle metallic sheen in sunlight. I'm a US 7.5, and usually UK 38s work for me, but I found the 38 in this shoe to be closer to a true US 7 (as advertised, in all fairness), being a tad snug across the top of my foot and also just a tad too short. I ordered the 39 and it fits much better and is very comfortable, so if you're a half size, you might want to choose the next full size up. I don't have a narrow foot, so I was worried these might be too narrow but they're fine (they're advertised as running
narrow to medium width). I would describe the strap across the toes as loose-fitting, but I prefer that to the alternative. I don't think they will rub or chafe, and any excess space can probably be reduced by the use of a ball-of-foot pad (e.g., Dr. Scholl's, or Foot Petals
). The sole of the shoe and heel are a muted gold color (warmer than the silvery color in the photos) rather than being black or dark brown. This gives the shoe a nice, light look that goes well with the leather color. This one's a keeper!
