This week we’re featuring sandals from Fibi & Clo. These sandals would make the perfect footwear for a beachy bride and her bridesmaids. And, at less than $50 per pair, Fibi & Clo sandals might make the perfect gift for your shoe-obsessed b’maids.
Fibi & Clo started designing these stylish sandals in 2009, and up until recently, you could only purchase them through an in-home party or fashion agent. You can still have a Fibi & Clo shoe party if there is an agent in your area, but if not, you can shop the entire inventory online at fibiandclo.com. After having the chance to try a pair for myself, I can confirm the rumors about these sandals. They ARE cute, inexpensive, and comfortable. The styles are surprisingly versatile, too.
The styles that Fibi & Clo design – especially the popular black cascade style – are easily dressed up or dressed down. I can see a relaxed (and comfortable!) bride wearing these at the wedding ceremony, and I can also see her wearing them all night long on the dance floor. She’ll even wear the sandals on her honeymoon, too! The black cascade style features smokey gemstones that are definitely eye-catching yet still neutral enough to match whatever you wear. The gemstones are surrounded by a ring of tiny pearls and rhinestones to provide just the right amount of elegance and bling.
I’m certainly not a fashion expert, but when it comes to shoes, I am quite the connoisseur. My background in shoe sales gives me enough insight to know when a shoe is really and truly comfortable and well made. So, from a shoe-obsessed standpoint, I found that the sandals run slightly small. Don’t be afraid to go up a half size. I ordered a 10, and I have wide feet. The shoes might fit me slightly better if they came in a wide width, but they are still 100% comfortable in the regular width. The soles of the sandals are more substantial than most dress sandals, so there is a little extra shock absorption and cushion than you might expect. In terms of quality, the construction of the sandals is solid and durable; however, the beading on the straps is obviously done by hand and isn’t perfect. I would anticipate losing a bead or gemstone before the sandal itself would break.
Overall, Fibi & Clo sandals offer the perfect combination of style and comfort and durability for under $50. They are ideal for the bride who prefers the comfort of a flat shoe over heels but doesn’t want to sacrifice on style. These sandals would also make great bridesmaids gifts, and all the girls could wear matching styles at the wedding. What I like most about wearing Fibi & Clo as your bridal shoes is that you will get to wear these sandals again and again, and you’ll probably end up a fan for life.
Here are few of my favorite styles. Which ones could you see yourself wearing?
I hope you’ll head on over to fibiandclo.com today and pick out your first pair of these cute, comfortable, and affordable sandals…just in time for warmer weather!!!
