“ Brand: Asda / Type: Sandals „
Shortly before going on my holidays a few weeks back, I was shopping in Asda for a few last minute essentials and noticed an array of sandals and flip flops on display. As I was walking past, I stopped to look at these toe post flip flop style sandals as the colours drew me in. They were available in white, black, gold, coral and turquoise that I can remember and looked very pretty. Even better was the £6 price tag which seemed very reasonable indeed for a pair of sandals, which did seem to be of good quality when I examined a pair closely. After trying a pair on and liking the fit, I decided to buy a pair and if it wasn't for the fact I had also purchased other sandals and flip flops for my holidays, I would have bought more than one pair at the time, as I found it difficult to decide which colour to buy. I am indecisive at the best of times when it comes to choosing and making decisions, but I really liked all the colours here, especially the coral and turquoise pairs. Despite being drawn to those particular colours, I came away with a white pair. The reason being that I already had bought some other sandals in a turquoise shade and although I really fancied the coral shade, I decided that white goes with everything and therefore would be a better choice to go with my holiday clothes. These toe post sandals have a knot detail in the centre above the toe posts and three individual strappy parts then lead from the knot to the side of the sandals, creating a pretty effect when you wear them. Of course, being so cheap they are not going to have leather uppers and indeed all parts of these sandals are made up of 'other materials' but what I will say is they do appear to be well made and good quality. I have both seen and bought cheap sandals before which don't last, but I am happy to say that the pair I bought have been on my feet most days since I purchased them and now two months later they are showing no signs at all of wear and tear. There is a very small heeled part so your foot is not totally flat, which I think adds to the comfort. I like the look of many pump style shoes for instance, but cannot wear them as they are so flat and hurt the backs of my legs when I walk. I always find that even a slight heel such as these which are approx 3/4 cm, make a big difference to my ability to walk comfortably. Another problem I have when on holiday abroad is that my feet and ankles often swell up and so I am limited in what I can wear on my feet when this happens. I am pleased to say that I could still comfortably wear these sandals when my feet became swollen, which was another bonus. I really cannot find any fault at all with these and on my return from being on holiday I did go and purchase the coral pair I was so fond of. I was back in Asda last week and noticed some of them had been reduced to just £3.50! And so I bought another pair to put away for next year. And so if you fancy a bargain then I can recommend these sandals. There is no picture showing here at the moment and it won't let me include a link to both the picture and details of the white pair I bought, but you can find them by searching online for 'George Knot Toe Post Sandal' and although they are selling out fast online, there appeared to be plenty available in the two Asda stores I have visited this last week, so it is worth checking your local store.
