    1. A pair of platform footbed sandals that'll make you look chic yet edgy. The contoured footbed will have you feeling like you're walking on clouds while the buckle closure keeps your foot firmly in place. Obsessed is an understatement. 👀

    The black sandals have a toe strap and a zigzag ankle closure with a small silver buckle

    Promising review: "Absolutely obsessed with these! I did luck out though. I bought them on sale and they just happened to be a half size up. I really recommend going half a size up — they seem to run a little small. I have them tightened as tight as they’ll go, and they fit perfectly! The grip on them is FANTASTIC, and they’re super comfy! I saw that some people have had problems with them making noises. I have a super high arch, so I haven’t had that problem. They don’t have a ton of arch support so don’t, like, go hiking in them. But they’re perfect for the office, church or for a night out!" –Ally

I've worn them with jeans to work, as well as a midi sweater dress and casual skirt and sweater outfit to church. They not only look great but are comfortable, too. I especially loved pairing them with black tights and my burgundy midi dress. I like that the toes are not pointed or round — kind of in-between. The heel height is just right.
