Jack Rogers Review: the Good, the Bad, and the Shoes

I’ve wanted a pair of original Jack Rogers for a couple of years now. I must say, it is not easy for me to spend $$$ on a pair of flip flops. I usually spend less than $30 on sandals and go with Old Navy or Nordstrom Rack, something similar. However, to me, these are not just another pair of flip flops. These are more dressy sandals that I can wear for a casual night out, or to one of the million weddings I’m invited to; to throw on and dance in after wearing heels all day.

Okay, so, I did some good research on these shoes. In fact, when I was looking I almost got the Draper James version, but I don’t like writing on my sandals. I was also first looking at the strappy versions, non-flip-flop like, but I wanted a classic. I opted to buy them through the Nordstrom website because I love the way you can return items with them to any store. It’s a more flexible kind of buying that I like, especially if it is a new brand to me.

So, I looked at the reviews of the Lauren sandal, but they were not as stellar as the Palm Beach Whipstitched sandals. I wanted to see for myself.

My sandals only took a few days to arrive, and I was so excited when they came that I tried them on immediately. I happened to order them in Medium Width because my feet are sorta wide. This did my feet better justice, but at first were a little difficult to get on my right foot. Maybe I have two different sized feet? I first walked them around my apartment and up and down the stairs. It is no lie, they “clunk, clunk, clunk”-ed everywhere. I actually almost slipped down the stairs. So, at first, they don’t really have much traction. They were a bit uncomfortable/tight on my feet at first BUT, the quality really looks exceptional. I read that it may take a few times until they “break in,” so we will see. I have a feeling they will probably last a really long time, so I decided I will not be returning them anytime soon. They are super cute and stylish too, and I love how they look. Sometimes a good thing takes a bit of work to last. That’s how I sum up my purchase of my very first pair.
