I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect non casual, yet still comfortable summer sandal that I can wear with dresses, skirts or jeans, and I’ve discovered them today in Sorel and Ugg Sandals. I have an upcoming trip to Las Vegas and so I really wanted a very comfortable pair of sandals that I could dress up a bit and yet still walk all day in. I have lots of casual sandals like Birkenstocks, and Olukai flip-flops, and my Adilette slides, but I wanted something more ‘cute’. I’d probably never wear any of these to a very fancy dinner out, but this category of comfort sandal really hits the mark for summer BBQ parties that are casual and laid back.
I really loved the Sorel Joanie Wrap sandals and ended up bringing these ones home. I think the neutral taupe color will pair really nicely with a lot of my dresses and skirts and I can see myself wearing these a lot through the winter. I was really impressed with how comfortable the Sorels are – they feel like running shoes! I have a few old pairs of Ugg Sandals which I’ve always found really comfortable but I think the Sorels have much more cushioning and softer leather. I liked the black and tan pair a lot on me but the taupe was the more practical choice for matching purposes. I tried these on in my regular size 9, and an 8.5. The 9’s where perfect but the only pair of the taupe in store where very broken in and loose so I tried on the 8.5’s and I liked those better. I may check another store for the 9’s, but if not I think the 8.5’s will work out just fine.
These Ugg sandals where very cute in both colorways but unfortunately they where sold out of my size 9, and the 8.5’s where way too short for my foot. The soles of these where very comfortable but the leather is stiffer than the Sorels – and for that reason they are slightly dressier and less casual.
These Sorels where not the prettiest but holy, where they ever soft and comfortable. Of all the ones I tried on today these where the most comfortable. I think I may have considered these more in a taupe color but this one had too much black and was too heavy a look for me for this style of shoe.
What do you think? Do you like Sorels and Ugg sandals? Have you ever owned a pair?
