I needed a new pair of heels for an event.
Yes, I do know the difference between “need” and “want.” The event in question actually had “stiletto” in its title and the invitation made it clear I’d feel dumb if I wore wedges.
I bought these:
I was nervous because – hello! – ankles. But the straps of the sandals made me feel somewhat secure.
Guess what? These shoes are actually pretty comfortable. Like any shoes, my feet hurt after a few hours and my bum ankle is never pain-free. But in the grand scheme of things, I got just what I needed from the Gideon sandal.
I like ’em enough to buy them in black.
Note: the toe box is narrow so I went up a half-size.
