Clarks Women’s Valarie Mindi Heeled Sandal
The valarie mindi is a versatile summer sandal featuring premium leather in a sophisticated, laser-cut design and a mid-heel height. Soft textile sockliners keep feet cool, while an ortholite footbed and cushion soft padding add underfoot comfort and support. Easy to wear all day, thanks to the durable TR outsole adding flexibility and grip.
I loved the style of the Valarie Mindi Heeled Sandal the moment I saw it. However, the sizing at Clark in the last year or two seems to be variable from one style to another . I used to be a solid 7M no matter what the style. This style - Valari Mindi - I had to go up to a 7 1/2 M, Delani Liri: 7W (otherwise, velcro straps didn't close without showing bottom of velcro tape) , and Leisa sandals: 7M.
Through this and another purchase of Clark’s on Amazon, I’ve found that they run a little small. I am a 9.5 regularly, I made the mistake of ordering my actual size in another pair of Clark’s on here and they were just a bit too small which made them uncomfortable. So I returned those shoes and made sure to get a half size larger in these when I ordered them. These fit GREAT! I included a pic of them on my foot. VERY COMFORTABLE I wore them all day and even did a short hike in them with NO problem!Would definitely recommend. But be sure to get that half size larger! I am a 9.5 and got a 10 in these, fit perfect!
These sandals are far more comfortable than any other I've tried! They aren't fancy but can be dressed up or worn casually. I prefer genuine leather as it forms to the foot and lasts much longer. I look forward to getting a lot of wear from these.
