AND THEY RECOGNIZED VINES AS A TOP TRAVEL SHOE - Sweeeeeeet!
We'll let you visit their article (here) and read the pros & cons of their selections, but here's a little summary of their criteria:
"For us, the best shoes are those that balance fashion with function. They need to both look good AND to feel good, providing comfort, cushioning support, and protection from the elements. Here’s a look at our picks for the best shoes for travel, including boots, flats, sandals, sneakers, walking shoes, vegan shoes and more!"
Vines Islandwear sandals are available in whole sizes 5-12. They fit "true-to-size" to narrow.
Q: Do Vines run "true to size?"
A: Vines Islandwear sandals run "true-to-size" to small/narrow. If you are a half size, we suggest rounding up. If you have a high or higher arch or a wide or wider foot, move up a whole size. Many women can wear multiple sizes depending on the style and preferred fit (a tight hug vs more wiggle room). Unless they have a narrow to average foot, most women who traditionally wear sizes 9 and up can move up a whole size without issue for more breathing room. Using the slip knots, our sandals can be slightly adjusted to best fit your foot size & shape.
Q: Are Vines adjustable?
A: Vines side cord knots give a little room to adjust the fit and hug. Loosen and slide the slip knots up and down the sides of the sandal to create your best fit. Move the back side cords backward to hug slightly looser, or forward for a snugger fit. It makes a difference...try it!
Q: Will my Vines stretch?
A: Our Vines' webbing is made with very high quality, 100% polyester cording. Because of this, your sandals won't stretch, but they will give to your foot as you move and groove. With our webbing's fit and material, your cording shouldn't rub or blister. If your feet tend to swell throughout the day or in the heat, we suggest sizing up to give yourself that extra breathing room.
