Le-am probat in magazin si sunt foarte usoare si par comode, desi nu s-ar zice la prima vedere. Mi-a placut ca sunt exact de culoarea pielii, dar ma deprima un pic bareta groasa de pe glezna, mai ales ca am mai avut unele asemanatoare de la Nine West (pe care le-am purtat pana le-am omarat, de altfel) si stiu ca nu arata ideal pe picior.

sandale aurii sampanie talpa ortopedica joasa comoda piele naturala clarksSandale aurii joase (cu talpa ortopedica mica), din piele naturala, marca Clarks – 254 ron aici/ aici.

Clarks “Santa Gift” Light gold/ Champagne leather low wedge sandals – 39,99£ at Amazon UK, here, or a similar design – “Santa Rock” – 39,99£ here.

Iata niste sandale care sunt si comode si (cat de cat) elegante: chiar daca sunt joase, detaliul floral este foarte feminin si delicat, iar nuanta subtila de auriu – sampanie le face sa para mai “luxoase” decat daca ar fi fost bej sau negre.

EN: I think these sandals strike the perfect ballance between comfortable and (somewhat) elegant: they may be low (they do however have a mini wedge heel), but the floral detail is very feminine and delicate, while the light gold/ champagne colour gives them a bit of a luxurious feel.

sandale clarks jive piele naturala bej maro cu talpa ortopedica toc mediuSandale bej/ maro din piele naturala, cu talpa ortopedica/ toc de inaltime medie/ mica, marca Clarks – 431 ron aici/ aici; (le puteti vedea cum arata pe picior aici);

Clarks “Popple Jive” Tan Leather Mid Wedge T-Bar Sandals – 62£ at Amazon UK, here. (You can see what they look like on a foot here).

Ma tot gandesc de anul trecut daca sa-mi cumpar sandalele astea: pe de-o parte sunt cam scumpe pentru niste sandale “de toata ziua” (iar marca Clarks nu se ieftineste prea mult niciodata) si am impresia ca arata un pic copilaros, cel putin pe mine; pe de alta parte au o nuanta foarte apropiata de cea a pielii mele atunci cand sunt bronzata (un mare, mare plus pentru mine!!!), au ceva toc (alt mare plus din punctul meu de vedere) si par comode (tabanul – partea pe care sta talpa – e ca o pernita). To buy or not to buy, THAT is the question, nu ce zicea domnu’ print :).

Update: “Surprinzator” (… not!) mi le-am cumparat pana la urma si sunt foaaaarte comode, e o placere sa calci pe tabanul ala moale!

Singura problema ar fi ca am reusit sa jumulesc destul de tare pielea de pe platforma (daca o pot numi asa) in partea din fata inca de la prima purtare (si am continuat la urmatoarele purtari): e adevarat acum ca nu sunt chiar cea mai gratioasa fata atunci cand merg, dar parca nici chiar asa – deci as zice ca sandalele au totusi un mic defect de “compozitie”. Partea buna e ca rosatura nu se (prea) vede dat fiind ca platforma e in diagonala, asa ca per total le-as recomanda cu caldura cuiva care cauta niste sandale comode dar cu putin toc.

Iata si un model similar, tot de la Clarks:

Review

In primul rand trebuie sa spun ca n-as fi crezut sa-mi cumpar ceva de incaltat marca Ecco, pentru ca asociam acest brand cu o varsta mai “inaintata”. Ei bine, iata inca o dovada ca atunci cand vine vorba de shopping (si viata in general, probabil) nu e bine sa ai prejudecati. Eu, una, cel putin, incerc atunci cand “vanez” ceva in mod special sa intru in cat mai multe magazine si nu e prima oara cand mi se intampla sa gasesc ce cautam intr-un loc improbabil.

EN: First of all I’d like to say that it was quite a surprise for me to like and buy a pair of sandals from Ecco because, even though I do sometimes go into their stores, I tend to associate the brand with shoes that are much too sensible for my taste. That goes to show that when it comes to shopping (and probably life in general) being prejudiced can work against you: you never know where that gem of a dress or pair of shoes may be hiding, so when I’m hunting for something in particular I try to give as many stores as possible their fair chance.

In al doilea rand, cred ca aceste sandale au marimi cam mari/ sunt destul de late: eu port 38,5 si am piciorul ingust (dar de cele mai multe ori imi cumpar 39), iar in cazul lor nu numai ca mi-am luat 38, dar aproape ca imi veneau si 37.

EN: Concerning sizing, I’d say these sandals run quite large/ are pretty wide: while I’m a size EU 38,5/ UK 5,5 with narrow feet (but often enough I buy size 39/ UK 6), not only did I buy these in size 38/ UK 5,  but size 37/ UK 4 almost fit me (I know because the size 37 sandals were the ones on display).

In ceea ce priveste aspectul si confortul: imi place cum arata pe picior – baretele incrucisate sunt preferatele mele, mi se pare ca arata elegant si nici nu “taie” piciorul, ca bareta de pe glezna -, sunt usoare (desi nu s-ar zice, par masive din cauza tocului imbracat in piele), dar nu sunt atat de comode pe cat mi-as fi dorit eu si pe cat m-as fi asteptat de la aceasta marca, despre care credeam ca face incaltaminte foarte confortabila, in detrimentul aspectului.

Ca sa nu fiu nedreapta, trebuie sa ma explic putin la acest punct: eu cautam niste sandale “de toata ziua”, cu putin toc ortopedic, cu care sa pot merge mult si repede (pentru ca sunt mereu in intarziere). Acum, nu stiu daca 8 cm e chiar “putin toc”, deci probabil ca am evaluat eu gresit inaltimea cu care ma simt confortabil la mersul pe distante lungi, iar faptul ca nu au platforma nu ajuta nici el. Faptul ca m-au ros destul de tare nu cred, insa, ca il pot atribui intru totul inaltimii tocului. (P.S. “Rosul” si felul cum iti vine incaltamintea in general sunt niste chestii foarte personale, iar pe mine ma rod si papucii de casa, deci nu inseamna ca ce am spus aici se aplica si in cazul altcuiva).

O mentiune speciala pentru faptul ca nu au bareta la spate, ci calcaiul “plin”: banuiesc ca e o chestie utila cand porti sandalele cu pantaloni, ca sa nu-ti intre sub calcai, dar cum eu nu ma imbrac aproape niciodata vara cu pantaloni, vad aceast calcai “plin” doar ca pe o inventie diabolica: inca un loc in care sandalele te pot roade (si in cazul meu aproape sigur nu ma vor “dezamagi” in aceasta privinta). Stiam asta, evident, cand mi le-am cumparat, deci e un risc pe care mi l-am asumat.

Per total le-as recomanda ca sandale de zi mai elegante/ smart-casual, dar nu suficient de comode pentru drum lung (pe jos) (desi eu, una, sunt dispusa sa ma sacrific in continuare si sa le folosesc in acest scop dat fiind ca imi plac foarte mult).

EN: Concerning look & comfort factor: I really like what they look like on the foot – cross straps are my favourite, as I think they look elegant and are flattering (they don’t “cut” the leg the way ankle straps do) -, they are light (which was a nice surprise since that leather-covered heel makes them look somehow heavy, at least to me), but they aren’t as comfortable as I’d have wanted or expected from this brand, which I thought chose comfort and sturdiness at the expense of beauty.

I don’t want to be unfair, so I’d better explain myself here: I was looking for a pair of tan everyday sandals, with a small/ medium wedge heel, that were both stylish and comfortable enough to allow me to walk a lot in them. Hardest thing in the world to find, apparently!

It’s very true that an 8 cm heel with no platform may not be everyone’s idea of a comfortable, everyday shoe, but I thought I could handle it. Well, apparently I was wrong, they are a bit high for what I had in mind – but I really have only myself to blame for thinking I could walk for miles in shoes this high. What’s worse, however, is the chafing – and there was a lot of it! -, which can only in part be attributed to the height + lack of platform (the foot is at a steep ankle, it glides forward, so there’s rubbing and chafing).

The closed heel deserves a special mention and what I want to say about it is: why??????!!!??? I understand it might come in handy when you’re wearing pants (because it prevents the hem from getting under your heel), but since I almost never wear trousers in the summer, I consider closed-heel sandals a thing of the devil: yet another place where a sandal might (and probably will, in my case) chafe. (Again, I obviously knew these Ossima sandals from Ecco had a closed heel when I bought them, so it was a risk I was willing to take).

So OK, after this long rant just forget everything I’ve just said because chafing and shoe fit in general are very personal issues (I get blisters even from flip-flops), so I don’t think you should dismiss these sandals on account of my experience wearing them: a little pain isn’t going to make even me give up on them because I do love the way they look (I’m frivolous like that :)) and they might feel great on your feet!

All in all I would definitely recommend them as stylish smart-casual everyday sandals that are not however comfortable enough for when you have a lot of walking to do.

In ultimul rand vreau sa comentez un pic asupra confuziei care exista la noi intre termenii “talpa ortopedica” si “platforma“: aceste sandale sunt descrise pe site-ul Ecco Shoes “sandale maro cu platforma”. Gresit, aceste sandale NU au platforma, ci au talpa ortopedica – pentru care oricum denumirea corecta ar fi toc ortopedic, nu talpa. Platforma, adica ceva care inalta talpa, au sandalele albe Jessica Simpson din colaj, care au si toc (talpa) ortopedic(a) (“wedge” in engleza), adica un toc care, desi inaltat, formeaza corp comun cu talpa. Probabil confuzia vine din faptul ca de multe ori incaltamintea cu talpa ortopedica are si platforma, oricum pe mine ma enerveaza teribil! (Scuze daca v-am plictisit!)
