    1. Cute and comfortable but couldn't stay on my foot

      I tried many different ways to tie these shoes but nothing worked. I am sending them back. I'm very disappointed.

    2. Cute but Uncomfortable

      I want to love these sandals. They are cute and high quality. They are also comfortable for the first few minutes of walking but then....the worst blisters I've had in years. They rub the crap out of my feet all around the loops no matter how many different ways I've tried to tie them. The chiffon ribbons are better but, inevitably, after walking for a few minutes these sandals make my poor feet scream. They seem to work for a lot of people, and I hope they work for use, but I guess it just depends on the foot.

    3. Years later, still my favorites

      I've had these sandals for nearly three and a half years now and they're still one of my favorite pairs of shoes. Even with nearly daily wear through the summers (which here in the south last from March through October) and unintentional runs in the rain, these shoes have held up extremely well.

      They're so comfortable and versatile, but it's the quality of the shoes that led me to review them this long after first purchasing them. Only within the last month or so have they seemed to develop noticeable wear (I step on the inside of my foot and the big toe on one of them is wearing thin). I imagine they'll still last at least another year (or maybe even two or three) before I absolutely need another base, but I'll probably buy another pair well before necessary because I love them so much.

    4. Good value - if you can keep them tight enough.

      I was so excited to get these sandals and two sets of ribbons! I love wearing things that can be arranged different ways for new looks. I had so much fun trying out different tying techniques!

      When it came to actually walking in them, however... No matter how tight I tied them, they would inevitably loosen as I walked, to the point of having to retie them before I reached my destination. I tried different styles, and some worked better than others, but unless I tied them so tight they would leave marks, I would have issues.

      I also wonder about the durability of the elastic loops you thread the ribbons through. I assumed they would stretch, but I'm afraid that if I tie them as tightly as I need to, they'll rip out.

      The leather is good quality, and comfortable wearing around the house. I do think they require breaking in, as with most leather shoes, but unfortunately I haven't worn them enough to do so.

      Still, if you can get them to work for you, they're fun shoes. I did receive several compliments while wearing them, and the ribbons are light enough that your feet stay cool even during summer.

      I think I will try them again today, as I really want to love them. According to the other reviews, they can be extremely comfortable and I need a good pair of sandals. Hoping I can get them to work for me.

    5. Extremely Comfortable and Beautiful!

      I absolutely can't say enough good about my ribbon sandals. I wore them all over my honeymoon, all over my local city and every day wear and my feet (and back) are in zero pain afterwards! The simple fact that I can change out my ribbons and match any outfit is fantastic news for me. I'm 100% on board!!

    6. Excellent Sandals!

      I bought my first pair of Ssekos...I think three years ago? There was only the brown available, and I only bought one pair of ribbons. I broke through my first ribbons at the end of last summer, after two years of wearing them every day that was warm enough. I'm back on the website to buy more ribbons, and maybe a pair of black soles now that they have those, and I'm surprised there aren't any reviews for these!

      I love the versatility of these sandals, they're mostly comfortable (although that depends a lot on your own ribbon-tying abilities), and they seem like they'll last forever. A much better value than buying a new pair of $30 sandals every summer, especially since an extra set of ribbons can give you a whole new pair of sandals! :)

      I am so glad I purchased this color! With the brown base and black sole, they match EVERYTHING (black & brown!). And I cannot stress enough how comfortable these are! They eventually mold to your foot shape, and with the adjustable ribbons, you can tie them as tight or as loose as you want. I wear these about 6 days a week because they go with everything!
