fibi & clo Sandals Review

I was recently contacted by a new company called fibi & clo. They make some of the most beautiful sandals. They sent me a pair to try out, and I think they make the perfect complement to a dressy outfit.

These are their “Black Cascade” sandals. They have large black stones, surrounded by tons of smaller beading. The design is unusual, as the strap runs down the length of the outside of the foot, and across the toes, creating a very delicate effect.

Any time an outfit or accessory has beadwork, I am always afraid that I will lose some of the beading. Often times I do, and then there is no way to fix it. Fibi & clo includes several replacement beads with each pair of shoes, which means that even if I do lose one or two, I will have an easy fix.

Another thing that I really liked about this company is that the sandals come with a fabric storage bag. This makes it easy to put away for the winter, protecting them when they won’t be in use and allows an easy way to keep track of those extra beads also.

footwear, shoes,
While I love that they are flats (I don’t wear anything with a heel), my one complaint would be that they don't have enough cushion. When I am dressed up, I don’t plan to do much walking, so it isn’t too much of an issue for me, but would still be nice.

These sandals fit a bit small, so I would recommend going up a size. I am normally a size 8 ½, so I went up to a size 9 (they don’t come in half sizes). I found the back strap to be a bit tight at first, but the longer I wore them, they broke in a little.

If you are looking for the perfect finishing piece to an outfit, these are it! They go with just about anything, and they are so unique that you won’t find anyone else with a pair like these.You can grab a pair for yourself HERE.

  1. I love the look of these, they are fancier than a traditional flip flop. Good to know about size, I hate when shoes run smaller than their traditional size.
