If you've been following my instagram, you probably know that I've been wearing my Everlane street sandals everywhere. As soon as I tried them on, I knew I was in love. If the Everlane slides were one of the worst shoes they've ever made, then their Street Sandal is quite possibly one of their best. These are the perfect summer shoes I've been waiting for from Everlane.
I purchased both the black and sand colored street sandals in a size 8. Size 8 is my normal size for Everlane, and usually with their shoes like the modern loafer, modern point, and even the modern ankle boot, they feel a bit narrow. But these in a size 8 might be a touch on the bigger side (and more like the sizing of the Modern Babo). But they still felt great and there wasn't any rubbing or even a hint of a blister from day one. These are definitely my kind of shoes.
The shoes are constructed with two thick leather bands over the foot and an elastic band at the heel. I actually really love that they made it an elastic band since it allows the shoe to move securely with the foot. I could run in these and not be afraid they would go flying off. But at the same time, if I'm in a rush or feeling lazy I could just slip my feet into the sandals and step on the elastic and the shoe still stays on securely (I'm thinking that after the elastic gets worn out, I could just remove it all together and still have a good-looking functional shoe). I also love that these shoes are super light due to the white foam-like soles. Also the shape of the white foam soles provide a bit of arch support so I can walk in these for hours without any arch pain.
To be honest, there are no cons to these street sandals in my book. I know shoes can be a tricky thing, so I'm not going to say that these are for everybody. However I think they are definitely worth trying since for me, I found them to be my dream shoes. So much so that I went and bought another pair of the sand street sandals when they were restocked. It looks like they may be out of stock again, but a restock is expected June 5th. Oh and I forgot to mention that these don't come with a protective plastic layer so be careful when trying them on just in case you don't end up loving them.
Also just to note that the sand colored street sandals will get dirty pretty easily. Both the white band and white sole will become a shade of light gray. But I actually think it adds character to the shoes (a bit like a patina you get on light colored leather bags). But if you're the type that wants to keep your shoes looking pristine, then the black pair will definitely keep their look longer.
