Chloe Woody Sandals: Are They Worth It?

I made my first designer purchase back near the end of 2020 and I still use it today, a Marc Jacobs bag which has been my constant companion since it arrived in my porch. I always said to myself that I would only ever make a luxurious buy, I would consider so many options, such as durability, price, how many times it could be worn and how many outfits could I style it with.


Back in May, as a birthday treat, I treated myself to these babies - the Chloe Woody Sandals. As I had seen over previous Summer's, these sandals always come back on the market and are bought by thousands every season.

When they arrived, of course I fell in love with them straight away, they're amazing shoes. A lovely design and I could already imagine the different outfits I could wear them with almost instantaneously. So, are they worth it? Let's do a little analysis shall we? -


COMFORT
________
This was one thing I was nervous about when purchasing these - would they be comfortable enough to walk around in? I can safely say that they are! I would definitely recommend walking around the house in them first so you can get used to them. As there's no give on the canvas strap and the sole is stiff leather, it may take a little getting used to when wearing them. I've worn them out and about now and I've experienced any blisters or aching feet after wear. 


SIZING
________
Another consideration I had to take into account - are the sizing's true to what they are? I put them on and they fit perfectly. So if you decide to buy these sandals, you can take your true foot size. However, if you're wide footed, I would suggest maybe upping to the next size. Just for comfort reasons!

QUALITY  //  DURABILITY
________
These are definitely wonderful quality. You do get what you pay for! In terms of durability, I am confident enough to say that these are sturdy as anything and the canvas strap is strong.


PRICE
________
Ok, the price is a little steep at £280. Saying that, I've seen Anya Hindmarch selling a sequin bag with the Walkers logo on the front for £895. Make of that what you will...
All I can say is that, from my personal perspective, the sandals are worth the money!


STYLING
________
Styling these sandals has been so easy, I've worn them as part of a few outfits but I know that there's so many other options to wear them too. Ok, I know I can't really wear these in the Autumn/Winter, but at least I know that I can wear them during the Spring/Summer. Two out of four seasons is better than nothing! Also these sandals come in three other different shades to the ones I bought, so you're not stuck for choice! I like wearing these on relaxing days out, evening wear and I know they'd be great for beachwear.

OVERALL  VERDICT
________
The Chloe Woody sandals have definitely been a worthwhile purchase for me. I've worn them a lot and have not regretted the decision to buy them in the slightest. Obviously, don't feel like you need to buy them just because other's have or that they're seen a lot on Instagram. Only buy them if you feel that you're going to get your money's worth and/or you can afford them. I saved up for these for a while so I didn't just buy them on the off-chance or as a quick, luxury splurge, or on a whim as some may say. The quality is incredible, the durability is great and I love styling these. Some may buy these and find them uncomfortable to wear or not worth the price tag and that's fine. 


I hope this review has helped and let me know what you think!

  5. I'm been excited to read this since I saw it on your IG this morning! These are really beautiful sandals, I'm in need of some really nice sandals and I'm definitely leaning into the quality over quantity mindset now, so I'd be much more inclined to go with a designer item! x

    1. I'm like you with the quality over quantity mindset now Jenny, I prefer buying quality items of clothing and restyling them to death than buying loads of things from Primark and only getting 1-2 wears out of them! x

  9. These are gorgeous! I'm so glad they're a worthwhile purchase for you. I think your review is great & will help lots of people who are on the fence about making the splurge. I don't really buy designer now, I used to, but my purchases were always quite willy nilly, I could have done with reading something like this beforehand. Great post! I'm sure you'll get lots of wear out of these sandals.

  18. These sandals seem to be such a Summer staple, I'd love a pair of these, but I just wish they would use vegan leather instead! Such beautiful sandals.

  19. I’m all about quality over quantity when it comes to clothing and accessories, so I can completely understand you paying the high price for them. They do look fab and I’m pleased to hear the quality is there. You could definitely wear these with loads of different outfits. I bet they look amazing with simple jeans and a tee. It’s always nerve wracking parting with so much money, so it’s great that you love them and get plenty use out of them. And they are so Insta-worthy too. I’m not jealous at all, lol x
