Possibly I am late to the sport, however I not too long ago found the sheer genius of Previous Navy’s footwear part. As somebody who’s had dangerous luck with costly footwear prior to now, I simply assumed the worst when it got here to the retailer’s choice. (Assume nothing, y’all!) However after I got here throughout the Linen-Mix Pointy-Toe Mule Flats a couple of weeks again, I figured, “Hell, I want to offer them a attempt.” After that comfortable triumph, I scooped up the Criss-Cross Fake-Leather-based Sandals, and the remainder is historical past. I am telling you: the model’s sneakers — at least their sandals and flats, anyway — are price attempting if you happen to worth consolation, type, and an inexpensive price ticket.
So after I walked into a close-by retailer not too long ago and noticed a wall stuffed with Double-Strap Slide Sandals ($12, initially $20, plus 30 % off with code HURRY), I did a double-take, not solely due to all the fairly colours, however as a result of they give the impression of being extremely much like a celeb-loved design of a a lot greater worth level. Understanding how a lot my toes love Previous Navy’s different types, I knew it will be laborious to go improper with these infants. And after I picked them as much as discover that they are tremendous light-weight, you may finest guess that I threw them in my buying cart. See beneath for a way they give the impression of being IRL.
The decision? My solely criticism about these slides is that they run a bit massive on my foot. I am normally a measurement 9.5, so I selected measurement 10 after I positively may have gone with a measurement 9. (There is a somewhat giant hole from the top of my foot to the top of the shoe.) For that purpose, I am most likely going to swap them out with a measurement down, however I am not mad about it: whereas I am on the retailer, I may additionally choose up one of many 11(!) different colours in the event that they’re nonetheless in inventory.
On the time of writing, these sandals have garnered a whole bunch of five-star critiques, and now — after sporting them nearly completely the previous few days — I perceive why. I am actually impressed with how comfy they’re due to their thick cushioning that your foot sinks into. That, teamed with how on-trend and straightforward to slide on they’re, is why you may discover me sporting them nearly all over the place this spring and summer season.
Lastly, it is price noting that these sandals are partially made with renewable sugarcane, which is a part of the model’s dedication to assist contribute to a greener future — and customers are obsessive about the model’s progress. “A feel-good buy each for the planet and my pockets,” one reviewer wrote. One other proudly declared: “The plant-based [design] is what offered me.” Kudos, Previous Navy: inexpensive sustainability is one thing we are able to all get behind.
