Sandals which have an adjustable strap - skinny feet!

Has anyone seen any sandals around this year which have an adjustable strap over the foot just before the toes, my feet tend to flop around in sandals which don't have this which causes foot pain! The only ones I have seen are ugly walking sandals, I made do with these last year but would rather have something nicer. smile Im early 30s. Thanks!

A friend with the same problem swears by narrow fitting birkinstocks (online only, I think) and these.

Yes Birkies. I have narrow feet too.

If you don't like the look of Birkies, I've found Sam Edelman Gigis fit well.

I went to Office, Schue and Clarks today, nothing except birkenstocks and I've tried tnem on in the past and not keen. Thanks though, still looking!

These look ok

I have this problem too. Last year I found a lovely pair in Primark that have an elasticated strap and buckle at the back so they stay on very well, although are rather roomy at the front still. But I've not been in this year so not sure what they have...

I went to the cobbler's today, he made a few new holes to the straps of my t-strap sandals, no more flopping, it was an easy fix!

What size are you?

These are nice.

fly london shoes are a narrow fit, they have some nice sandals. these are adjustable at the front.

i have narrow feet too, can't do things like fit flops as my feet are way too small for them.

Dune aren't too bad, I have narrow feet.

I just bought some lace-up gladiator sandals from TopShop which have a width adjustable piece across the front of the foot (I have the opposite problem - feet too wide).

Look on the website for Hilt sandals. They come in black or tan and are gorgeous.
