Jamie S.wrote a review of Sorel Ella Sandal - Women's on April 13, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Let me start by saying that I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review Is my personal opinion. I got the Ella Sorel Sandals in camel brown, and they have become my go-to shoes for spring. They can be dressed up or down, match just about everything and, best of all, they are durable and comfortable enough to walk in for miles--literally. The first time I wore these was to work, and at lunch I came home and walked the dog for a mile. The elastic straps keep the shoes from moving or rubbing your feet, so there was no blistering or discomfort. Today I walked two miles with no issues. I was worried about the shoes being too tight across the top of my foot because I have bone spurs at the base of my big toes, but that isn't the case. The soft leather has just enough give that it doesn't put pressure on the joint. Also, although it is hard to tell from the photos, the insole is nicely cushioned, so my feet don't get fatigued.
The Ella Sorel Sandals are perfect for picnics, festivals, casual weddings--anything occasion when you want to look stylish and have the freedom to move with comfort. I'm actually going to get a pair in metallic natural for an upcoming wedding. I would recommend ordering a half size up--I'm an 8.5, but found that these are just a little shorter than I'd like. Not enough to stop me from wearing them, though!
