I got these sandals from Josef Seibel to try out and I was delighted when they arrived a couple of weeks ago… because the sun was shining. I imagined shorts, linen trousers and so on. However, the sky has remained resolutely overcast ever since – plus, it’s been more than a bit parky. My lovely new sandals have remained thus – nothing other than a stumbling block on the bedroom floor.
But, it’s time. I’ve had them long enough. I need to let you all know what I think.
So I dashed out from the warm zone – about 2m from the little heater that hides under my desk – to the arctic upstairs and grabbed them and put them on. Oh, but they are so comfy.
Almost comfy enough to forget that it’s Baltic here. But not quite.

What I like about the shoes?
Comfy, comfy, comfy. Did I say they were comfy? But also I think they look fine, they have enough heel to reduce flat-shoe waddle and I like the colour. Velcro fastenings mean they’ll work at whatever stage of footswell you have.
What I don’t like?
Very little. Perhaps they aren’t ladylike or elegant, but that’s not what they’re for. Oh and I’m going to have to attend to my feet before the weather warms up. No rush then.
It’s possible the Velcro could become a bit annoying as, in this house, I sometimes kick through piles of laundry the way lovers do through fallen leaves. This means I could end up being accessoriesed by a dirty sock or two.
Mr Seibel has come up with another versatile, comfortable sandal that, once summer arrives, I will wear to death.
