Old Navy Criss-Cross Leatherette Sandals I Editor’s Review
I’m probably really late to the game, but I only recently discovered the sheer brilliance of the Old Navy shoe section. Earlier this month, I fell in love with the brand’s linen-blend point-toe mules. (So much in love, in fact, that they slipped into my suitcase for a trip to France.) I was blown away by their comfort, especially since I found them on sale—and let’s face it, the majority of my Dear the shoes are very uncomfortable so I certainly didn’t have high expectations for an affordable pair of shoes.
This brings me to my latest obsession, which I’m thrilled to reveal is just as comfortable as the aforementioned linen pair. Enter the best-selling Criss-Cross Faux Leather Sandals ($16, originally $20), which I knew I had to try when I saw they had a near-perfect five-star review. I added them to the cart in size 9.5 (yay, half sizes!) and mentally thought about what outfit I would pair them with (read: my favorite long black denim shorts and a cropped white tank top).
In the product description, the brand describes these sandals as having a padded footbed and is not exaggerating in any way. These slides make it look like I’m walking on a cloud – or at least what I imagine walking on a cloud would look like, anyway. Best of all, everything about them feels super durable, like they’ll last me way beyond this summer.
As their high rating indicates, other Old Navy buyers are also obsessed. “This is the most comfortable sandal for summer,” writes one reviewer. Another said: “I was pleasantly surprised at how much I like them! I think I’ve been wearing them every day since I got them!
I can’t forget to mention that these sandals are also available in Cognac Brown, so you have options depending on what best matches your warm weather wardrobe. The only thing stopping me from adding this color to the cart too is that I’m pretty sure I’ll be picking up more styles from Old Navy’s shoe section this summer – and one girl can only have one. a number before it becomes a problem.
