OUR FIRST THOUGHTS
Another addition to the Rumblers range by Skechers, come these Skechers Women’s Rumblers Sparkle on Wedge Sandals.
These are completely synthetic, but give a passable impression of suede.
A lightweight construction, these sling back slip on shoes are the perfect easy wearing touch of glamour to add to any outfit and can transform daywear into something for a night on the tiles.
These are a dressy pair of black wedge heels that look like they’ll make light work of your feet and actually be something that feel comfortable to have on, unlike so many heels.
As far as we can tell, these Sparkle On Wedge Sandals only come in black.
This is the only slight disappointment with these sandals. If you were hoping for a choice, then there isn’t one – or there isn’t as far as we have been able to find.
No longer available on the Skechers website, it looks as if other websites may be your only chance of owning a pair of these classy looking black sparkling rhinestone sling backs.
These are a fine-looking pair of black wedge heels. The platform sole measures half an inch and the heels are two and a half inches tall.
The toe end of the sandal’s upper is not made of a stretchy material and is quite fixed, it is the sling back heel strap which is elasticized and gives some of the necessary movement in the shoe.
And as for the rhinestones, then these are made of a light plastic and not the metal material you may be thinking. They are just as glitzy though!
Seventy percent of customers think that these fit well and that their usual shoe size should serve them well. It is unlikely that you should have any problems with finding a size to match yours, but if you are one of the unlucky few, it is possible that these may be a little on the roomy side for you.
Available in standard and half sizes, the Skechers Sparkle on Wedge ranges from a five up to an eleven. These also come in a wide fitting as well, to give a better choice for those with a broader than average foot.
In general, people seem happy enough with the sizing options.
The good thing about sandals and open toe ones in particular, is that these are usually fairly accommodating of wider feet– which is one reason why women with a broader foot will choose them over other types of fashionable and strappy footwear.
Obviously, Skechers is a name that we turn to in the expectations of comfort. And our hopes are not dashed when it comes to these Skechers Women’s Rumblers Sparkle On Wedge Sandals.
The whole point in choosing a brand like Skechers is that these will be superior to the mere ‘fashion’ brands, which might not be as easy to walk in and certainly won’t reward our feet with a memory foam insole, like these have.
Although we wouldn’t quite say that these were like walking on air, they are certainly pretty comfortable and compared to some fashion sandals, have been more designed with the express intention of walking in mind.
This is always a good thing, as far as we are concerned!
So, whilst we don’t expect to march around for miles on end in them, we can be reasonably confident that these should stand up to a full day on our feet, in normal circumstances, without slipping, gripping, snagging or digging into to us excessively.
One thing that these sandals have scored consistently highly on has been comfort, so we think you should be just fine carrying out your day to day activities with a pair of these on.
Well obviously, these are sandals, so there are always going to be limits to what they can realistically achieve.
And these are not water sandals or hiking shoes, so we need to rein in our expectations of storming up Ben Nevis or swimming with dolphins, whilst wearing them.
It is unlikely that these Sparkle on Wedges will cope with either activity particularly brilliantly.
However, they are good for plain, ordinary walking in, on pavement or other straightforward surfaces.
Because they have a heel on them, you would not expect to go rock climbing in them, so just take care with them and we think that they should last the distance.
Although we can’t find out for absolutely sure (and we aren’t prepared to take a bath wearing them) we would not recommend getting these wet. That means anything wetter than a light shower.
This is because of the material they are made from and the fact that the memory foam sole is probably going to get very wet indeed, if immersion occurs.
SHOULD I BUY THESE SANDALS?
We think that these Sparkle on Wedges from Skechers, are another great addition to the Rumblers range of sandals.
If this is not the one for you, then be sure to check out the other sandals in the range, because there is bound to be one that does fit the bill.
All the Rumblers wedges have the same basic prototype as a base. The platforms and heels are all roughly around the same measurements and come in a black base as standard.
We like these Sparkle On Wedges because of the, well, sparkle that they bring to our tootsies.
But unlike some sparkly shoes, these are not delicate, strappy creations that will fall apart or flay us alive, as we wear them. They are both comfortable and stable.
For these reasons, we would definitely recommend these to any woman looking for style without compromising on comfort!
