I am not exactly sure how I first found out about Feesk Boutique and their Toe Plug Sandals, but I am glad that I did! Best discovery of Summer!
I can honestly state that “not all sandals are created equally.”
Especially not after seeing this selection of fabulous footwear. Each pair is skillfully hand made, a true one-of-a-kind masterpiece! They are based loosely on ancient sandal styles (also known as Padukas). It is no wonder I’d never seen anything like them!Fiona, the owner of the shop, kindly sent a basic black toe plug sandal for me to review, and I have been wearing them ever since!
I received a beautiful wrapped package and an even more beautiful pair of toe plug sandals. I couldn’t stop looking at them! So posh. So European. The most original and unique pair of sandals I have ever seen! No other sandal I own compares to the “prettiness” of these sandals!
A sandal is not just a sandal any longer!
But there is always that part about actually wearing the sandals… what good is a shoe that you just look at?
I had my doubts when I first received them. I didn’t understand the concept of these sandals staying in place or fitting right. I thought surely they would pop off, and probably in the most embarrassing way. I was also concerned about the comfort of a “plug” between my toes.
Well, truthfully they did pop off for the first two days. The plug was unusual. The space between my toes was the same as a typically flip flop, but the plug was the odd part.
But remember I said I’ve been wearing them ever since? That’s right, the plug adjusted to my foot for absolute comfort! It just needed a few days to relax and mold to my feet!
Now that the plug has adjusted to my feet they don’t pop off at all! I actually don’t even think about it anymore! They are superlight (each pair weighs as little as 0.35 lbs) – which I love, not heavy and dragging me down!
I have worn these sandals on walks with my dog, to the supermarket, mailbox and around the house. They have gotten some pretty good use! I would say they are great for a few errands, but not a long day of touring the city. They are surprising comfortable for light walking though.Feesk sandals are hand made with eco-friendly leather cloth insoles and recycled rubber outer soles. These sandals are just simply gorgeous. They make me feel special, and they definitely stand out! I can wear them casually or dress up an outfit with them.
Prices on the Feesk Etsy site vary depending on the detail and intricacy of the sandals. These high-fashion sandals range from $45- $120 (great for handmade)!
