Another hit for Chie Mihara
I love Chie Mihara shoes and while these don't have the normal quirky aesthetic of CM's, something drew me to them as a nice simple black suede summer sandal, but with the quality of CM's. Loved them instantly on site. However, figured I would wait since $$$$. Unfortunately when I looked again nearly sold out at full price? YIKES.
Despite being sold out in my size, I managed to snag a return---these are fabulous sandals. I ordered size 39 which is what I normally wear in CM's due to them being Spanish/Euro sizing. Otherwise I've been wearing an 8.5 these days. They are very well made and the suede is very soft. You can tell it's the better suede hides that were used. The T strap makes them casual yet, dressy, depending on what you have on. I can see wearing these constantly with ankle jeans to update a casual look with a cute top for a night out, with a cute dress, etc. or just running errands. The height is 3" and is the perfect height for a little lift, but also not too high to be an issue after a long day.
