cydwoq sandals

It's hard to find the perfect pair of sandals, isn't it? Well, I finally did after years of searching! Actually, I found them a while ago at the shop I used to work at, but at the time couldn't justify the purchase. I figured if I was still thinking about them 6 years later it was probably a good idea to get them. I special ordered the natural tan color from Cydwoq, the style is called Bare. When I tried them years ago I was a true size 7, and the 37 fit perfectly. I figured my feet have grown a little so the 37.5 would be a better bet. In truth I probably should have stuck with the 37's as the 37.5's are a little big, but I figure a little extra wiggle room is okay - so I guess, when in between sizes, size down. The foot bed is nice because it's made out of really thick and sturdy Veggie Tan leather, and has good arch support. After writing this I realize this might sound like an ad, but these sandals are really amazing! And this is the part where I say "I highly recommend them!".

I love how they look! I need to look into it. I hate sandals that are flat and have no arch support.

regarding stel's closing--i'm super bummed that jon and tina won't be on newbury st. anymore. thanks for the head's up, i really wasn't expecting the news!

These are GORGEOUS! I have heard that Cydwoq shoes are really comfortable, but I didn't realize that they were also very stylish!

Your'e right, these ARE the PERFECT pair! Great job : ) I'm surprised they still sell them 6 years later. I've been trying to find some MAdewell sandals forEVER and I think they've just run out?? I don't know. But these are beautiful!

I have these very same sandals in a pale green, and I still love them after 6 or so years!

I have the "defend". Always catching someone's attention with my pair. It's definitely worth the money. I was advised to put soles on them to make them last longer and I've worn these sandals on several trips abroad -- where I tend to do a lot of walking. I can literally walk for miles and miles in these sandals and it doesn't hurt one bit. It's great too that it's a CA company (where I'm from) and it's handmade and they try to keep it as natural as possible. And the arch support is really what sets it apart. Congrats on your sandals! Wear them with love. ;)

I confess I have, oh, I think four pairs of Cydwoq sandals. The first I bought seven years ago, and they are still going strong! My most recent addition is the Thong, which I bought last year at Ped Shoes, which is carrying that style again this year. I almost never take them off. It's nice to see yours—I have been thinking about getting the red version of that style. Hmmm.
