I love a good toe-ring sandal. My holy grail pair is the Cydwoq pair above – it has been for several years, since I discovered Cydwoq, which is made in California of Italian vegetable-tanned leather. I tried this pair on a couple years ago at a store in Austin and they were immediately comfortable, and I knew I’d be obsessing about them until I decide to get them. I really feel like I’m good with flat sandals for now though, so I’ll probably continue to hold off until next year; that Cydwoq style is a classic, so I don’t think it’s going anywhere.
I also LOVE the ATP Atelier for a much more “minimal” look, although it is VERY flat, and the Cydwoq has much more support/molds to your foot. Of course, my Mephisto Helen sandals have a toe-ring, but they are a more casual/orthopedic/normcore style than I like to wear ALL the time…
There are a lot of good options out there, in many different styles, and price points. At the high end, the Pedro Garcia pair is gorgeous, and I’ve heard they’re comfortable. And Gentle Souls are very comfortable, I’m just not feeling a platform version right now.
How do you feel about toe-ring sandals? Do you like the style? or do you prefer thongs? double-strap sandals?
