The goal here was to create a genuinely wearable, comfortable heeled sandal that doesn’t sacrifice one ounce of chicness.
If you’re going to go into a project with a goal this major, you have 100% of my attention (and prayers, because… how?). Plenty of brands claim to make heels that are comfortable, but not until I wore Sarah Flint’s Perfect Pump did I actually believe someone could pull it off. With summer coming, you can imagine my rapt attention to the Perfect Sandal.
A few things to appreciate about this sandal’s sheer ingenuity (meaning, here are some of the reasons these shoes won’t kill your feet):
• They have wider toe straps than most sandals, so they won’t crowd and smoosh your toes together in pedicure-ruining pain.
• They have tons of extra footbed padding (an extra 6mm!) and raised arch support (that no one else can see, but you can really feel).
• The rubber sole, which solves lots of stability issues, but that also means you don’t have to take your new shoes immediately to the cobbler to have them add a protective layer to the bottom of your brand new shoes. PRAISE THEM.
Here, I’m wearing (and probably never taking off) the 85mm heel height, for your reference. But in another stroke of genius, they’ve made the sandal in a 100mm heel height option as well. Unlike most heels that are wearable from the time you lock your front door to maaaaybe the end of your first glass of wine, this shoe is meant to be worn and walked in… as in all day and night, comfortably.
Lest you think this shoe is all function, no form, it’s SO CHIC, PEOPLE.
I love the trifecta of delicate straps across the toe and the perfect dainty ankle strap. Add to that a major dose of versatility, and you have the perfect shoe for summer wedding season, rooftop cocktails, and warm weather events of literally all kinds. I’ve already snagged the nude hue as well.
Better news still, the discount code MARY50 (all caps) will score you $50 off your first purchase on SarahFlint.com! The code doesn’t expire. It’s good on your first purchase of any pair of shoes, not just the Perfect Sandal (though I think I’ve made my preference clear).
Genuine breakthroughs in footwear are rare, even more rare when we’re talking about the heeled variety.
As women with classic style leanings, we’ve worn a heel or two in our day. I’m telling you, this brand is game changing for us, so much so that I’m stocking up. A closet full of pain-free footwear? Why not? It can’t hurt (literally).
Thanks to Sarah Flint for partnering on this post!
