This is the first pair of ART shoes that I have bought. The colour matches a Radley bag that I use in the Summer, and worked well with my summer outfits. The colour is fresh and zesty and the leather is soft and comfortable right from the first wearing.The construction is amazing with the heel and instep in wood and the footbed in thick flexible rubber.The ankle straps are soft but hold your foot firmly in place. The rubber foresole is wonderful for walking as it allows the shoe and your foot to bend, so no footbed "burn" you get in some shoes. There are little rubbery stalks hanging from the bottom of the sole which help the rubber to grip.I was able to walk in these on my recent Turkish holiday, coping with the rough pavements and roads without twisting an ankle or slipping. I would thoroughly recommend these to anyone wanting a comfortable stylish holiday/Summer sandal. I bought these wonderful shoes from Amazon.co.uk
The quality of art is undeniable. Fit perfectly, hold the feet firmly, so even if you have a back problem, such as a slipdisc, you can walk in these shoes. I bought it in three colours. The only drawback, if the toes are wide they may tend to get outside the shoe sole. If they were a little bit rounder at the front, they would fit any foot.
