And so the Everlane review train keeps on chugging along! There's a lot of new items coming from Everlane this summer that I've been super excited about. First it was their Form Sandals (review here) and then it was their cotton belted shirtdress (review here). And when I saw these Bridge Sandals on their Coming Soon page, I knew I wanted to try them out right away (especially since they are reminiscent of a certain Hermes Oran sandals that seems to be a blogger favorite right now).
First a note on sizing, I purchased these in my usual Everlane shoes size of 8 and I would say they run true to size. Also true to general Everlane shoe sizing, these run narrow (like Everlane Modern Loafer kind of narrow). And the vegetable-tanned leather that these sandals are made of are quite thick and very stiff. It would take quite a bit of pain to stretch out these leather sandals if you have feet that are not narrow. The Bridge Sandals are not at all like the beautiful stretchy Napa leather that the Form Sandals are made from. Interestingly enough both the Form Sandals and these Bridge Sandals are made in super tiny factories in Florence, Italy, but they're different factories. And you can tell because these sandals are nothing alike.
Also unlike the Form Sandals, these Bridge Sandals have zero arch support. So if you plan to walk more than a block or two in these sandals, be prepared from some arch pain. In the end, I had to send these back because even though I really love how they look, they're just not made for my feet. Give me Everlane's Form Slide Sandal any day (and actually I've been wearing them pretty much everyday).
