Naturalizer asked: Why did you choose this?
- Christine: "Very stylish and neutral. Since I've received them, I love how comfortable they are. I can wear them all year--as sandals in the summer and with pantyhose the rest of the year."
- Betty: "Love these sandals and am sorry they no longer seem to be offered."
Patty asked: I am thinking of wearing these sandals with my MOG gown. Can they be dyed? I need them to be a silver/pewter color or a light olive greenish color. Would fabric dye work on the fabric?
- Linda S: "I don't know- they seemed to have some kind of a spray coating on them to protect the fabric- if they were professionally dyed it might work. I don't think I'd try it at home. I was at a Naturalizer outlet store last night and I'm pretty sure they had several pairs of slightly different styles in that color already. I had to send these back because they were too big. If you have to try dyeing them yourself- try it on the back of the strap end which won't show. If that works, you might try painting the heels with a sparkly craft paint to make them look a bit more formal."
- Barbara: "I purchased these shoes to wear with summer clothes, and I love them. However I don't know if fabric dye would work because of the material used inside the shoes. The fabric is also lined with what looks like a man made leather, and I don't know if that would ruin any part of the shoe. Whatever you decide to do, hope it works out for you."
- Lill: "I suggest asking whoever will be doing the dying. The shoes are metallic and I question whether they would hold the dye."
- Robert: "No they cannot be dyed"
- Diane: "I'm not sure it would work as these shoes have a gold metallic look to them."
- paula: "No I do not think they are porous enough to dye. they actually are a bit stiff. I bought them in black and this color but I am sending this color back as this pair did not fit as well as my black pair. I hope this helps."
N asked: Since the one shoe is fabric, wondering if the shoe in a wide size will "give" a little to allow room for my bunions or am I out of luck? I am having trouble finding a sandal. Last year, I wore a summer thong style shoe which had a back strap around my ankle. It feels a bit too bare for office wear though. A back strap sandle prevents the sound of "flip, flop, flip, flop" in the office.
- rebecca: "Hbi cottage lady to be honest, I purchased a wide by accident, I meant to get a medium and I never returned them so I can't give you a good answer sorry about that."
- Sharmon: "This shoe isn't wide at all. The crafting of the shoe is odd. I do not recommend this shoe. The sole of the shoe is hard, the material doesn't feel like it will expand.... S.B. "
- Brenda: "I wear a Narrow, and this shoe in the fabric was tight and stiff, yet very pretty fabric. I was disappointed I could not wear it. Finn Comfort has great styles for troublesome feet. You might try their brand of shoes/sandals. "
- Jeanne: "I also have a bunion and was hoping this shoe would be comfortable. It is slightly tight but after wearing the shoe with an atletic sock a few times it did stretch out enough for it to now be comfortable. I love these sandels"
- vicki: "I love these shoes for the office - just like you I am always looking for sandals that are not too bare. I have these in several colors and they are perfect. They are comfortable. I do not have a wide foot, but I would think that there is plenty of stretch if you need it and the cut of the shoe would actually cover up a bunion."
- Joan: "I happen to have a very narrow heel. I have found the Naturalizer Jane shoe generally Ok for my sized foot. It is a bit wide for me, but I am concerned with your bunions and whether or not the shoe will give enough for you so that you are comfortable. I feel the quality of the shoe is quite good, and the style is one that you will receive some complements. I am just not sure that it will be the perfect match for your feet. Perhaps you could try the shoe, and if it does not give a little, perhaps a shoemaker or repair person could do an adjustment so that it becomes a bit wider. I was thinking that the "Angeles" sandals might work for you. I have several pairs, and they do give a little after wearing them for awhile. I hope this information will be helpful. I wish you all the best luck in your search for the most comfortable shoe."
- Margaret: "They fit tight. No give. The back of the shoe is very stiff. I had to buy some heel inserts. But they are very cute!"
