I purchased these Munro American sandals last week at Nordstrom. They caught my eye because of the neutral color, scallop and tiny cutout details.  The latex soles also have an adorable flower on each foot.

I wasn't looking for new sandals but I tried these out on a whim and liked them. I originally took home the normal width (M) but when I tried them on again at home I realized that my feet would expand a bit in the summer heat so I exchanged them for the wide width (W). American Munro offers narrow and wider widths as you can see in the above  size chart so you should be able to find the perfect fit for your feet.

Note: These are pricey at $169.95 but hopefully they go on sale so I can get a price adjustment. Nordstrom is very good about honoring price adjustments based on my past experience.

The elastic straps are extremely comfortable and similar to the Andre Assous sandals I purchased last year which I still love and highly recommend. I even bought back ups of the Josie espadrilles in nude and black on sale from Belk. I love to wear the same shoes all the time, year after year but I digress. Getting back to the subject on hand, the Lacy sandals are very flattering on the feet and doesn't look like a wide width shoe. The footbed is very soft and supportive at the same time and there is a small 1 1/4" wedge for a little bit of height.

Style, comfort and versatility are really important to me when it comes to footwear and I'm thrilled to add the Lacy sandal to my spring and summer shoe rotation.

Thanks for this! I injured my foot last year and still haven't fully recovered so I can't wear heels all day. These look more stylish than the typical "comfort" shoe so I'm going to check it out!

I always love your shoe suggestions. :) Thanks Jess!

My pleasure Jen. I hope you like them! They're very soft too. I used to wear heels so much I ended up with Achilles tendonitis a few years ago and had to see a podiatrist. It was very painful and I learned not to take walking for granted.

These are super-cute and look like they'd been really comfy. Other than the width, did you find them fitting TTS? Thanks!

Thank you. :) Yes, the length of the sole is TTS. I tried going up to 7.5 but then there was too much shoe leftover in the front so I chose a wider width instead. I wore them to go walking on a light trail and they didn't give me any discomfort.
