I own 2 pairs of Olukai sandals- the most expensive they make- $150/pair. They are worth it. This model at $120 is beautifully made but the fit was terrible- thong in the wrong place?? My heels hung off the back; my toes were an inch from the front. Disappointing from Olukai, but returned to Territory Ahead with no problem.
A piece of art
I have been looking for a pair of high-quality leather sandals for my husband for years. I bought the ginger color. The size seems completely off the chart. My husband usually wears size 8, we had to exchange for size 9 (no new shipping charges :-). Note that the straps are so very tight that the toes will not be able to reach the front toe post line at first. We almost decided to exchange again for a size 10. After reading the previous review, we have decided 1 size up the normal shoe size will fit for the long run after the break-in period. Other than the size issue, my husband likes the intricate design and stichwork, saying these shoes are a piece of art.
These run small to your normal size. Territory Ahead was very quick to replace with the next size up. They do take some break-in, but they are my every-day footwear now. Comfortable and stylish, they look good even with jeans. I have no problem recommending them, so long as you want to spend the money for a good quality product. Just go a size up.
Beautiful sandals, high quality build. The workmanship is terrific and the smooth footbed feels wonderful against my skin. I usually wear a 9.5 and the size 10 fits me very well. Can't wait to see how they feel after some breaking in but they are quite nice right out of the box.
