Review: See by Chloe Low Wedge Sandals

Outfit: Etoile Isabel Marant Broderie Anglaise top (similar here), Karen Walker skirt (similar here) and See by Chloe low wedge sandals.


Sorry for being MIA lately as I've been curled up in bed with a nasty cold. Thankfully, the worst is over so back to regular blogging :)

After suffering from a year long of shoe drought, it's literally raining shoes. Or should I say sandals. I can't be happier. You know what I'm talkin' about. The kind of obsessive relationship women (ok, me) have with shoes does not extend to clothes. You've probably have heard enough of my rants (sorry!) about the lack of small sized shoes for abnormal individuals like moi.

I've been like a woman possessed lately, muttering as I pounded away on the keyboard trying to locate a pair of mid heeled wedges. Just like these ones on the stunning Kate Bosworth's feet. The hubs was initially rather amused with my predicament, murmuring sympathetically whenever I ranted with ever increasing fervor. But he soon became rather alarmed when he spied his otherwise sane wife metamorphosed into a somewhat deranged shoe addict who may need a shoe exorcism performed on her.

I would've never guessed these were See by Chloe sandals and relatively affordable. I was thrilled when I found out that these low wedge sandals were on sale. I normally steer clear of anything that wrap around my ankle but these have a way of visually elongating the legs. The leather is thick but far from uncomfortable. Comfort is non-negotiable with me. I have a lifetime of dealing with blisters and agonizing pain from ill-fitting shoes. The wedge heel height is just 1.5 inches which gives a nice arch. The rubber soles are equally thick and perfect for rainy days as I often worry about slipping on wet surfaces.

These sandals run pretty small. I actually took the next size up which fit perfectly. I can't deal with wooden clogs as I prefer  cushioned insoles. These passed my school run tests which require a lot of running (we're always running late) and going uphill and downhill. They're available here for $219.99. Whew! My year long search for sandals are now over (I think.......).

  1. Cute outfit, and well done on finding the shoes!
    I own a pair of four-inch heels from see by Chloe and it is ridiculous how comfortable they are. I bought mine full price and they were pretty expensive but given how often I wear them, I think they have paid for themselves by now. I bet yours will last a long, long time.
    On an aside, how does Kate bosworth always manage to look so fresh? Love her style.

    1. This is the first time I've purchased a Chloe anything. I'm glad to hear that even 4 inch heels are comfortable. I'll certainly keep them in mind. I was initially shocked that these wedges were made in China but the quality is surprisingly good. Couldn't agree more. Kate Bosworth is one of my favorite fashion icons.

  2. Glad you're feeling better, we also had a touch of a head cold due to the weather last week. Mission accomplished! Well done - I love these! Where are they made please? I ask because I just got some wedges by Surface to Air and they are made in Portugal which was unexpected and am not so sure about the quality....

  3. I'm glad you're over the worst bit of that cold. These sandals are beautiful and that they are comfortable is quite the bonus! I don't wear a lot of sandals and I don't particularly like the 'wood' look. But I am loving these sandals (http://www.novoshoes.com.au/collections/wedges/estelle/1033.aspx) I bought them in both colors! Now all I have to do is wait for summer! Le sigh...

  7. Love the simple look of these sandals. You sure are on the roll to buy some sandals after your shoes drought (that term is too funny). Glad to hear you are feeling bettter. I have been going through a similar sick phase that i got from my little one..sigh. Now all three of us are sick. We are more sick than ever since we have a child, a huge plus for being parents i guess.

  11. I love these! The ankle strap makes them really pretty and it's substantial compared to most ankle straps, which is a nice look. Glad you are finding so many pretty pairs of summer sandals that fit. I can imagine your plight. A GF of mine has the same but opposite problem of yours. She's an American 12 (and 6 ft tall) and most really pretty, cool shoes don't run that big.

    Hmmmm..... tan leather sandals with all black? Thanks for the inspiration. I bought a pretty pair of tan Chloe flats for this summer and didn't consider pairing them with my black dresses.

  12. I kind of hate you, as I just pulled the trigger on these even though I strictly told myself no more purchases for a long long time. :P Well, they might not fit if you say they run small!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Congrats on finding a pair of sandals that meet your expectation! I like the pairing of black with tan too:)

  14. LOVE these sandals, you can pretty much wear them with anything.

  16. I hope you completely recover soon from your cold! These sandals are so cute! Love how you paired it with the shirt and skirt! So lovely! I can totally relate to your obsession over sandals. I am dealing with the same obsession... grrr... too many nice sandals this year! :)

  17. Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well, but glad that you're now feeling better sweetie! It's so awesome that you've been finding sandals that work for you because I know you said it can be tricky finding shoes in your size. I absolutely love these See by Chloe sandals. That shade is like the perfect brown, and you're going to get lots of use out of them. Love how you styled them here! Congrats on another awesome pair of shoes! :)

  18. Love the cheeky lime detail - they make the shoes really stand out and they are beautiful. How do you always find the best stuff!!!

  19. I am borderline obsessed with an all black outfit! Love this one.

  20. Pretty! I'm sure these shoes cheered you up plenty. I'm a flats girl but I admit you've swayed me a bit with these low heels...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Lol loved this post! I've been going through the same shoe obsession. In January I gave away a ton of shoes that were just collecting dust! I have since replaced them with new ones thanks to the amazingly affordable range by Zara! Love these Chloe ones, the colour (my fav), the heel length (easy to manouvere in) and the fact that they have straps and are peep toes - not a fan of toe cleavage!

    Glad your feeling better :) oh and I'm going to attmot one of your chicken recipes this weekend so wish me luck! x x

  22. These sandals look super cute and comfy too. I too have stayed away from shoes with straps around the ankle but they're so popular with sandals this season.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog as well. Hope to see you around more often!

  25. Hey Marlene, these are really the perfect basic sandal. I love the small wedge, even more perfect than a simple flat sandal. The outfit you picked is also super cool, I love the IM top ! xx

    ReplyDelete
  26. Really gorgeous Marlene. I can see why you just couldn't pass these up. Well at least you are well stocked up now for your next shoe drought :)

  27. A great review. Comfort for me too is essential. They do look lovely. I have a habit of looking for things in the wrong seasons. I'm still trying to get a couple of winter tops and the shops are about a week or two from putting out their first spring/summer ranges! You made me laugh with the comment about dogs doing their "ahem" on the sidewalk in Paris. I was oblivious of course and my husband said he'd been quietly steering me around them as I took it all in! What a darling. Certainly wish he didn't need to watch out for them, yuk.

  28. Those are adorable sandals! Perfect for everyday. Hope you recover fully soon!

  29. I totally love the way you styled the sandals! I get into possessed modes as well when I'm utterly intent on tracking an item down. It's good you found them and glad to hear you're over the worst with your cold. I still swear by the old Chinese no eating/drinking anything cold rule which my mom taught me when trying to fight a cold.

  35. Oh no! I hope you are feeling better! Get well soon.

    Your sandals look great! See By Chloe does such a good job- they look comfortable too.

    I really like this outfit a lot it's easy and quick to throw on for the school run. You inspired me to look at old pictures of my mom dropping us off at school- she always looks so chic:)

  36. So glad you are feeling better! :)

    Love the outfit collage and agree that that brown is a wonderful contrast to all black! I have a pair of See by Chloe boots and I really like the leather! So glad you've been able to find all these great sandals in your size! It's raining shoes!! LOL!
