I have been keeping an eye open for this seasons Rohde collection and ordered the Rohde 1897 sandal, I had purchased Rohde 1893 Slingbacks last summer, as soon as I put them on it was like wearing a pair of slippers, the sandal was light to wear and very comfortable. Unfortunately when I tried to purchase another pair my size was no longer available. Other than the design of the straps on this seasons 1897 the product specification was identical so I decided to buy the 1897. I have not been disappointed they are just as comfortable as the Rohde18930. The leather straps are soft and as they have velcro fixing can be adjusted to fit a wider foot. As I have difficulty in finding footwear that is so comfortable to wear I have already purchased another pair just in case my size becomes unavailable again.
In response to the review which mentioned the problem with the insole-Maybe the following is the reason that the reviwers sandals appeared to be not up to standard
On my first purchase of Rhode sandals I too noticed that the insole was not stuck in properly and pointed it to the store assistant, they informed me that the insole was attached with velcro and not glued in to make the insole easily removable for people who needed to have a custom made insole fitted into their sandal.
