    1. Favorite Summer Sandals!

      I've had these for two years now, and still love them! The two layers of microfoam in the heel give me a lot of support, making them perfect for family outings when I will be walking quite a bit. Better for me then sneakers honestly.

      If you're having trouble, find a Fellow! Chances are you just need to master how to perfectly tighten them for your specific foot. Once you really get it, you will love them for years!

      I've never liked any thing between my toes but these are so much easier to wear. I enjoy trying different ties!

      I bought my ribbon sandals more than five years ago and they still have MILES TO GO before I am done with them.

      There was a learning curve to tying them when I first purchased them. I remember walking across the room and feeling them slip off with every step. I finally figured out how to tie them just-right + haven't looked back!

      I have worn them for all-day sightseeing trips, and I have worn them to weddings.

      They are so versatile + THE BEST travel companion! Just throw in some extra ribbons and I have sandals to match EVERY outfit!

      I ADORE these sandals. My first Sseko purchase, but definitely not my last. I love the style(s) and comfort. I am a museum educator/evaluator and spend ALL DAY on my feet either standing, running up and down stairs or chasing after kiddos and these are the single best flats I've found for the job. Easily transition into "after-work" and casual. I love the versatility of not only the tie options but the ribbon options and accents.

      A note about ordering:
      -If you are a half size, order down a size. I'm a 7.5, ordered the 8 to be on the safe side and it was too big. A 7 would have been perfect!

      I have had my sandals for about four years and they just get better with time! They are sooo cute and comfy. I do have to say that the only way that i can walk in them without them flopping or sliding off my foot is a thong tie. I was disappointed when I learned all of the different ties that although super cute, I couldnt keep them on. I think maybe a wider strap would work. But i Love them even with one tie option!!!

    9. 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.

    10. 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.

    11. 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.

      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!!

    13. 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!
