Women's Thea Flat Sling
I'm very happy!
I love this sandal enough that I bought it in nude and black! It is a great value for the price, and it makes my feet look really pretty! I usually have a hard time finding sandals that I like - the "flip..flop..flip..flop.." sound of flip-flops drives me crazy, and everything else offered anywhere as (so-called) "men's sandals" are boxy, chunky, ugly ventilated sneakers. I'm forced to wear poorly ventilated, damp, musty, steel-toe workboots all week (so I wear paint to protect my toenails) - on weekends I want open, airy, light, fun, stylish and pretty sandals. Nobody sells sandals like that for men... so I buy mine in the women's department, and I am SO HAPPY that Payless carries women's shoes big enough to fit a man my size! I wore these "Thea" sandals with painted toenails all last Summer, and I got nothing but compliments, every time I put them on! I've discovered that I really love having pretty feet, I love painting my toenails and wearing shoes that show them off, I love my Thea women's sandals - and I love Payless for carrying these in my size!
P.S. - I bought each pair in a different store, and in each store the staff was friendly, courteous, respectful and eager to help me find the perfect pair of women's shoes - they gave me a pleasant and comfortable shopping experience.

Cute but wouldn't buy again
These shoes are adorable, but I'm glad I only paid $10 for them. After the first time I wore them the gold part of the shoe had already worn/been scratched off. The next time I wore them I slid the gold part around so the scratched part faced the bottome of the shoe and you couldn't see. Unfortunately now both sides of it are scratched up. I am not sure what they used to coat that little gold piece but it shouldn't be on a pair of shoes!

Awesome Slings Durable Material
I bought these sandals in all 4 colors and they are both functional and stylish. The soles are made from sturdy durable leatherette that has the feel of expensive sandals and provides a hard surface between your feet and the ground. They are also wide providing extra protection for the same purpose so your feet do not spill over to touch the ground. The straps are stylishly thin and you have to slip into them but that is cuteness that gives it the very summery feel and it makes your feet feel a little more free as if you're wearing little to nothing on them except the hard sole to step on.
I just love them!!! I bought them at full price as soon as they came out. I find them comfortable, stylish and durable. I can't believe they're on sale at 50% off what a steal. These are a great buy for somebody needing something fun for the summer.

Great buy! I purchased this sandal, along with 4 others the same day, and this is by far my favorite purchase. It fits true to size. I've worn this sandal 3-4 times a week for the past 2 months and not only is it comfortable, but durable as well. The multi-color allows me to wear this sandal with countless outfits. The only thing that disappoints me is that winter is approaching and I'll have to wait until next year to sport them again.

One foot bigger than other!
This cute style caught my eye but the fit & craftsmanship was very poor when I received it! For starters the multi colored material is cheap hard canvas THERE IS NO STRETCH OR GIVE TO IT! I got the right foot on with some struggle & the left side wouldn't go on at all! THE RIGHT SIDE SHOE IS SMALLER THAN THE LEFT SIDE! This is clearly the result of poor hand stitching, upon inspection you can see where the stitching on the left & right of the sandal are clearly uneven. I am thoroughly disappointed I was so looking forward to wearing this with different color maxi dresses this week, now I have to make a trip to return them to my nearest payless, totally defeated the purpose of conveniently shopping at home! I wouldn't pay $5.99 for this sub par shoe let alone $19.99 plus SH & tax that I payed, don't let this cute style fool you! Looks good fits HORRIBLE!
