At first i had a look through their inspiration gallery to check out the styles people had pre-designed and ordered, i loved all of the prints and different colours and textures! I was so tempted to design a brightly coloured multi-coloured metallic leather pair, all singing all dancing, but lets face it i always knew i wanted something sleek, sharp, smart and cool - in the colour that goes with everything...black! I fancied myself a pair of their incredible gladiator sandals, i am quite the fan of a statement shoe so the Appia sandals caught my eye and i decided to go ahead and get them customised. I originally chose them to be made from black suede however when the stylist got in touch they recommended the nubuck black leather as it's more hard wearing than suede and has a silky soft finish with a suede look - well their recommendation was spot on as the nubuck looks and feels amazing!
All of the sandals are made onsite, by hand, in Saint Tropez, so i was expecting to wait a good few weeks for them to arrive with me in the UK, but within 6 days i had an email to say they were ready and on their way for delivery the following day! I received them 7 days after the original order so i was super impressed at their speedy service and attentive customer service levels. The Appia sandals are i everything i expected and more, the packaging is great as they came boxed with a dustbag and care details - i love the style, they come to just under my knee so are ultra high on the leg which i love, and the studs down the middles add a little grunge to them which matches my style so well! They fit true to size and the adjustable straps mean they can fit legs of all lengths and sizes - the leather is thick and tough, which will age beautifully over time - when Summer comes they won't leave my feet, they are just fab!
K.Jacques also offer care and repair on all of their sandals, the craftsmanship is stunning just like their customer service. I've been really impressed with their levels of service and how beautifully made these sandals are, thank you K.Jacques!
