Sarah Flint Perfect Block Sandal 60 Review
I finally decided to spring for the Sarah Flint Perfect Block Sandal 60 because I wear the exact same sandal with a 1.5″ shorter heel constantly. I wear the Sarah Flint Perfect Block Sandal 30 almost every day from spring to fall, and I wanted something that was just a little bit more elevated (literally and figuratively) for dressier occasions.
The official description of these shoes says: 50mm (2.5in) block sandal with expanded toe box, anatomical arch support, 6mm of extra footbed padding, inset block heel, handcrafted in Italy.
How do they fit?
I wear between a 7 and a 7.5 and I opted for a (37.5) 7.5. They fit perfectly.
Are they comfortable?
Always! Sarah Flint shoes are pricey, but they are so, so incredibly comfortable. The extra padding is life changing.
How do they wear?
These wear beautifully, just like my other pair of Perfect Block Sandals. While I haven’t worn these a ton (probably 10 times total), I can speak to the other pair. I’ve had them for about a year and a half and I’m rough on my shoes. I wore them a ton. Literally almost every day above 70 degrees that I went somewhere and many days even under if I was looking for a pair of sandals to dress up jeans. They did finally take a beating after 10 days of wearing them on cobblestone streets and hiking up medieval alleys and across stone beaches(literally…I wore them on multiple occasion when I 100% should have been wearing sneakers). They’re still fine to wear though I do need to take them to a cobbler at this point — which is kind of the point. We shouldn’t be wearing fast fashion, we should go back to the days of finding pieces that will last and taking care of them.
What can you wear them with?
The 2.5″ heel is perfect for any event or occasion where you need to be a little more dressed up. I’ve worn them with both dresses and jeans, to a dinner out and to a wedding.
Would I recommend the Sarah Flint Perfect Block Sandal?
Absolutely. They dress up any look and have a more feminine, sophisticated look for a fancier occasion than the shorter Perfect Block 30 sandal, which is my everyday sandal.
How Do the Sarah Flint Perfect Block Sandal 30 v. 60 Compare?
I think a good place to start for comparison is my Europe trip. Both the Sarah Flint Perfect Block Sandal 30 and the Sarah Flint Perfect Block Sandal 60, both in calf, were in my bag (let’s recall, I packed for 10 days in a carryon). And I wore both. However, I wore the 30 literally every day except the day it rained. They are the most comfortable sandal I have ever worn — even more so than a flat sandal, and they go with everything. From dresses to jeans, they’re my go-to.
I pulled the 60 out for nice dinners out and I do think they elevated the look. They’re still not a high heel necessarily and the block heel is so comfortable. They’re not going to become my everyday sandal in the way that the 30 is, but for bridal showers or date nights or even a wedding, the 60 is a dressier, more elegant look.
Are Sarah Flint Shoes Worth the Price?
There’s no way around it. Sarah Flint shoes are expensive. So are they worth it? That depends on how you plan your wardrobe. If you’re someone who loves more is more and looks for more affordable options so you can have 100 pairs of shoes to choose from rather than 10, they may not be your best. But, if you prefer to have a capsule wardrobe for your shoes, choosing from a more edited collection of high quality shoes that you’ll keep for years, then, yes, I would say they are totally worth it (the comfort alone is a game changer!).
