I made the mistake of trying them on, just to remind myself that ankle straps look sh*t on me… alas they look amazing.
I don’t need them…

I’m sorry but I think you probably do!! 😂 They’re lovely, and if they’re anything like my usual experience of R & B, extremely comfy too!

I don't need the Boston sandals they have which are very similar, fortunately for me they don't go big enough for me (9), they rarely do.

Have you tried the 8s? I had to size down for the Toetallys which never happened to me

Can you easily afford them and are you confident that they'll get a lot of wear? If so, get them. Sometimes it's better to get one thing you love and that will last than multiple cheaper things.

Yes I can afford them but I’m meant to be saving for a kitchen.
Will they get lots of wear? I’m going on a special holiday in a few days and they will look great with a couple of my dresses for the evening. After that they will look great with some of my barrel leg trousers, midi dresses and shorts but I won’t be able to drive in them and I’m not sure how they will be for lots of walking.

I look at them and see blisters after rubbing on the top bit of my foot.....and getting a bit irritated when my feet get a bit hot.....

update…

@hobbledyhoy you were also right, it turns out I did…

@VaVaVoombangabang the leather is buttery soft with raw edges so they are very comfortable

please excuse the blur of my child walking into shot

I don’t need these do I…?

Those are fabulous, you definitely made the right choice and it's now even clearer that you needed them.

I think I may need them too...

Thank you! I’ve always considered myself to have cankles and have tried and failed to find ankle strap sandals for years, maybe is the crisscross design that makes it work.
If you do buy them, size down.

Agreed. The loop around the big toe is weird.

I've had my eye on these all summer, I just wish they did them in tan - I don't wear a lot of black, I'm not as keen on the white and the taupe suede will look battered very quickly - tan leather would have been perfect. I notice the taupe are reduced in the sale - perhaps that's a sign?Grin

@Rina66 they are a beautiful colour, they are £££ but not that much more than the R&B ones…
@JofraArchersFastestBall and @LizzieMacQueen thank you for your kind comments

Sorry OP you have lovely feet and dont have cankles from what I can see from your pic, but those really look very odd on, I wonder how secure they will be walking in them.

To me a strap is missing.

But if you like them, hell why not!

Thank you for at least being kid with your feedback.
I am really pleased with them, I did make a point of trotting around the shop in them to make sure I could walk.
