The Basket Weave Sandals are nothing more than the Whistlestop footbed with a new design on top, in other words consider them really comfortable. I put them on and could have not taken them off the rest of the day. I had tried the Whistlestops from 2010-2011 and they didn't work out for me because they were too tight across my toes (I don't have a wide foot). I don't have that problem with these shoes. The thin leather straps seem to be more accomodating. Also, I have a 10" long foot and my regular size 9 are a perfect fit, no excess footbed to spare. The color is an orangey-brown leather, leaning more to orange. Usually I don't like this color against my super white skin but that should change quickly as the summer goes on. I do wish they came in a light shade of tan. As usual, the biggest drawback is the price tag but they are definitely under consideration for full price; they are really comfortable and go with most all my casual outfits.

Thanks ladies! I've decided to wait & find sandals in a more neutral shade; these sandals are just too orange against my skin. I won't always have tan feet when I want to wear them, which would probably be most days of the week. Maybe end of season but I just don't *need* more of this color, although I love the comfort & style of the sandal. I hate my sensible days, they leave me in regret on my impulsive days. :P @beyondtheblue @bluehydrangea
