Wow! Those are great! Surely worth the wait. I love the colour you went with.

Thanks for your tip last time about the Martha Stewart tissue pompoms!

Those are lovely sandals, and I've been looking for a simple pair like that - a bit austere and very organic. (Until now, I thought I found the ideal pair - aesthetically speaking - when I bought the Matt Berenson gladiators.)

Are the Sara Barners truly comfortable, more so than non-custom shoes? And also, is there any form of rubber on the sole to prevent slipping?

Lastly, can you give us a ballpark figure of how much Barner charges for custom made sandals? Thanks!

viv-
from what i gather, the high arch will settle eventually, giving the sandals a really custom fit. the reason why i went with sara is because i get to have shoes that actually fit my ornery feet. it's not just that my feet are wide; sara also fits the straps onto your feet. if they stretch out too much later on, i can send them back for an adjustment. since i haven't worn them out yet, i can't say if they're more comfortable than regular sandals, but they feel great so far. these will also require some amount of breaking-in because the straps are intentionally set tighter.

oh, and she can put on a rubber sole, or your local cobbler can do it for a minimal fee. i paid $185ish for the sandals (incl. shipping), although i'm not sure how much she charges for her other styles.

hope that helps! i think her work is beautiful, and i love supporting small-scale designers, so it was worth it to me.

i love hearing more about this. custom sandals for $185? what a seriously great deal! that's not even that much more than the a.p.c. strappy sandals i had my eye on. and that's really cool that she will fix them for you if they stretch out.

just lovely!
