Leather Sandals: Upper + Lower

Updated: Feb 16

Years ago I found leather bottomed grounding sandals and I liked them a lot! Soon after my first purchase, the company went out of business and I've been searching for a reasonably priced leather upper, leather bottom sandal for almost a decade. I've finally found them and didn't want to take the chance of not being able to find them again, so as you can see, I purchased a couple (or maybe a few) pairs! If you want to read more about my active shoe style faves, click here. Check out these Vintage Foundry styles:

Zaria Leather Flats (brown)

These have the slightest heel lift but the shoes are pretty comfortable. Not that any of the shoes are super flexible (at least at first on the z-plane), they do break in some. To find an immediately flexible full leather shoe, well, I haven't found that yet! These have a criss cross top and are fancy for a little slide.

Berlynn Women's Leather Sandals (green multi)

I wore these a whole bunch last summer. I liked that they matched the muted colors of my linen really well. At first I was hesitant about the toe ring part - I've worn the normal flip-flop style before, of course, but I wasn't quite sure about just the ring around the toe. Turns out it's pretty comfy and with the straps, I don't have to hang on to the shoe with my toes which is so much better!

Berlynn Women's Leather Sandals (blue multi) - yes, I got the same ones in blue. I have worn the green ones with my blue linens, but thought it'd be nice to wear the blue ones with my blue linens. If you want to read why linens are so important to me, read this post! Anyways, when I got these, after I'd worn the green version, I realized how much the leather naturally stretches over time.

Torie Women's Leather Slide Sandals (black)

There was a learning curve in wearing these shoes and I feel like of all the ones to say that about, this would have been what I least expected, but it's true. For some reason, my feet would come off the side of the shoe from time to time. There is a slight heel lift on these (which isn't ideal). Anyways, the heel is hard and my heel would sometimes hit on the side of the shoe heel and it was pretty unpleasant (not sure if this is making any sense, but it happened enough times to me that I thought it was worth mentioning). Going into my second season of wearing them, this hasn't happened yet, thankfully. On thing that is really different on these slides compared to other slide is how much my toes come through the top of the shoe. I feel like normally the layer on top of the foot covers the top of my toes more. At first it was weird to see, but now I'm used to it.

Geneva Women's Leather Strappy Sandals in camel + black

Pictured in camel (above), these are flat, plain, leather uppers and bottoms. I'm glad I have them as an option, but I do for whatever reason find the multi colored ones more comfortable for some reason.

Just a note after a season of wearing leather sandals in general - they age and stretch, but they get comfier in my opinion! What's your favorite sandal style? Tell me in the comments and as always, #GetSatiated.
