Here

I am motivated by wanting some red sandals and that these are cheap. Or is the two fabric thing on the toe awful?

I like them. The 'fabric thing' looks like suede to me Smile

I think it is suede. Soemthing about the leather / suede combination seems very 80s to me, and ot in a good way. Perhaps I'm wrong. Smile

I think if you are having to talk yourself into them then don't buy them cos you probably won't wear them.

I wouldn't wear them, mostly because they are red. But I have seen worse.

I don't like them. But I don't have to like them. I think they are suited to an older woman, although my DMum is 50 and wouldn't wear them.

Ok! Im not getting them. Really I'm just trying desperately to find something red as I've just bought myself a red bag and I need shoes to go with it.

I like red shoes. Smile

Personally I wouldn't do red bag and shoes together; would look OTT. Nude/neutral shoes would work well.

I like red shoes. I also like the rhyme "red shoes, no knickers"

I think they're all right, would be cute with cropped jeans and a gingham rockabilly shirt. But I would want to try them on, I've bought so many pairs of heeled sandals that fit fine when stationary but end up flapping about under my soles as I walk, basically unwearable.

Oh actually just seen the two fabric bit and it has put me off too.
