Tan wedge footbed sandals?

(29 Posts)

I want some for work. I need to be able to walk far in them, prefer a cork wedge so nice and light, and not too high. Footbed shape preferred.

I like these, but they are weirdly turned up at the front and I don't think they'll be very comfy. Does anyone have them?

Any other suggestions very welcome.

Any suggestions. At all.

Hush Puppies but not foot-bed-y enough?
Next but too high?

blodynmawr Sun 14-Jun-15 11:58:23

Lands End. Probably not foot-bed-y enough maybe but look quite comfy.
PS the Hush Puppies linked above are currently on offer at Debenhams if they are any good.
Lands End again but probably too off brief.

What about fitflops? I've just ordered some-only a tiny wedgey bit tho, but super comfy!

What does foot bed mean?

Heavenly Feet cheap. Also some other cheap wedge options on that website....

I have those office ones op and they are wonderfully comfortable. I have had many compliments while wearing them.

I was watching QVC the other day (yes, I know!) And Birkenstock are selling a wedge footbed sandal in tan. Sorry can't link because I'm on the phone, but Amazon sell them too. I think that they are a bit pricier than regular Birkenstocks though.

tethersend Sun 14-Jun-15 16:15:46

Ooh, answers, thanks smile

Nacho, can I ask how the sizing comes up on yours? Are they narrow/wide? Not too high?

Not keen on any of the others, sorry.

tethersend Sun 14-Jun-15 16:19:37

I found these, but not sure if they're too high too...

tethersend Sun 14-Jun-15 16:21:33

these are perfect, but out of stock...

I tried these and they are lovely.

tethersend Sun 14-Jun-15 18:28:43

Not keen on those, sorry WhendoIsleep.

Love your NN though grin

Tethers, I tried those office ones last year when trying to get a Clarks pair that were like hen's teeth. Anyway,I found the sizing good, a solid 6 and I've reasonably wide feet, and they were comfy. Only reason I didn't get them was the ankle strap was a tiny bit too high for me which causes circulation problems weird feet

Take a look at the Esska site,sorry dont how to link, they're pretty comfy but without looking like a pair of ramblers sandals or some hush puppies are pretty cool too.

tethersend Sun 14-Jun-15 19:41:51

Thanks Muckymoo- esska are my go-to comfy sandal site, but they don't have any wedges this year.

Am quite cheered by the reviews of the office ones... They're not THAT high, are they? What do you think, would they be ok for a fair bit of walking in the heat?

Cocolepew Sun 14-Jun-15 19:50:32

Next have ones like the second yokono pair.

tethersend Sun 14-Jun-15 20:08:36

Do they, Coco? I couldn't see any... Can you link? Thanks smile

Cocolepew Sun 14-Jun-15 20:46:59
