Enjoy an on-trend look with the OTBT Gearhart sandal. This retro-inspired women's wedge sandal has a supple leather upper with laser cut-out details; an adjustable strap at the ankle showcases a distressed buckle to add a textured look and customize the fit. The OTBT Gearheart sandal rests atop a rubber sole for flexible support and traction.
When I got the shoes they appeared to already have been worn. I called onlineshoes and was told that they couldnt do anything about it as they were sent directly from someplace other than their warehouse. I cleaned the shoes, as they had black scuffs on them. I chose to keep them because I first saw them in Georgia and they brought back good memories. Next time I will buy them in the store where I originally see them, and try them on instead of trying to save a few bucks buying online.
I'd had my eye on some other shoes for weeks, some new Swedish Hasbeens, a Kork-ease platform, and some El Naturalista pumps, but one night I stumbled upon these and felt like giving them a try. I started a new early-morning running practice and felt like I wanted to give my feet some breathing room and get some classy open toed shoes I could wear to work. It turns out these are super cool, and while all the other shoes I ordered got sent back, I've been wearing these to work, on bike rides, to church, to the grocery store, and all around town. Even my cute college interns at work complimented me on them. They are really well made, and as my fourth pair of OTBTs over the years, these are definitely getting the most use. In all OTBTs, the soles are pretty flat and hard, but the overall quality construction makes it OK. The one down side is they make a goofy sound in the arch where air gets trapped and squeaked out. I'm hoping that goes away once I break them in a little more. Until then, I will just walk very carefully through the office.
I ordered a pair of these in size 9 and both the length and width are perfect and I love the shoe and they feel so comfortable, except for one major problem - both of the the ankle straps are way TOO BIG, especially the back straps behind the ankles. It feels like I'm swimming in them, and even the right foot back strap is a slight bigger than the other and sticks out. I wish that OTBT would realize that not everyone with a larger shoe size has big ankles!
Also, the elastic attached to each buckle makes for less durability, and makes it much easier to twist an ankle. The buckle is already adjustable and should secure the strap to the foot.
I'm hoping that I only received a flawed pair, because I love the shoe so much I might take a chance on another pair of the same size, but sadly, this pair has to go back. :(
