As seen in the April issue of Instyle.....Double banded slide sandal with clear wedge detail. Measurements: wedge 5" and platform 1 3/4".
These shoes have too big of an ankle strap.
Nevertheless I didn't return these shoes but took them to my shoe repair guy and he did a marvelous job opening and repairing the shoes making the strap narrower 1/2 inch and since you can't even tell it was repaired I took my 2 other brand new 9W wedges and he fixed these too and it was worth paying the little extra to make the shoes so perfect fitting!

Toe strap too narrow, instep strap too loose - so disappointed!
This is a difficult review, because the sandal was too big and too small at the same time!!! Consequently, I could not select the appropriate Width on the scale provided.
Luv'd the look, but when they arrived the strap around the toes was way TOO tight and the stap aound the instep was too loose!!! So I had to return them. Maybe I received a poorly made pair.
Now I look at the Footprint View of the shoe to determine if the shoe will work for me. If it's cut like Pitcrew, I won't order it. The shoe may work for you. I just have a wide ball-of-foot and toe area I NEVER wear pointy shoes - just can't unless I buy them in a much bigger size which makes me trip going up stairs.
I luv the 9 West.com ease of returns and the return shipping price is fair. So I just ordered 2 pairs of Firstmet. Now I have them in 3 colors - not the pink. I'm too old for those even tho I think they are very pretty.

Tricky but cute
I wear a 9 or 9 1/2 in sandals. I got a 10 so my toes wouldn't hang off. The top strap sits up and doesn't really cradle the foot, but it doesn't interfere with support. They were a lil uncomfortable to walk in initially until I got in touch with my center of gravity. LOL They looked very nice with my outfit.
