Strappy Musse & Cloud wood sole sandals

These strappy wood sandals are another pair that I received from Coolway for review. When they arrived, they were immediately my husband’s favorite of my sandals. He loved the sexy straps of the sandals, and that I am nearly as tall in these sandals as he is. ❤

Wood sandal details

Like the other Musse & Cloud sandals from Coolway (see Leiza Musse & Cloud review) these Malena wood soled sandals are very light. They come in black as shown above, tan and blush. The beautiful reddish wood is covered by an about 0.16 inch (4 mm) memory foam insole. Thus, they are very comfortable despite of their height. I love that ❤ .

This Musse & Cloud Malena sandals have a plateau sole of about 1.5 inch (3.8 cm). The heel is 3.75 inch (9.5 cm). This difference is 2.25 inch and provides the sample slope like a dress shoe designed for the office. Tweet about this.

Sizing

As I pointed out in my previous review, the Musse & Cloud sandals come in full European sizes. Such when you are between sizes go for the higher size of them. I went half a size up from my US size (7.5), i.e. a size 38 (US 8) and these Malena sandals fit perfectly. Note that when I lived in Europe, I wore a 37.5 or UK 5.

Style inspiration for Musse & Cloud sandals

In this outfit example, I wanted to go for a California Casual look. I paired these strappy wood sandals with a straight above-the-knee dark denim skirt, black silk top, and linen jacket. To go with the easy-breezy California Casual vibe I added a tote that picks up the color of the the jacket and the black of the shoes with its decoration. I accessorized with the whimsical frog necklace that my mom gave me for graduation with a MS in meteorology in 1989.

In Germany, a frog is associated with being able to forecast the weather. If the frog is up on the ladder, the weather gets better. 🙂

I also added two bangles, my usual signature bangle with its studs and a DIY bangle that was my signature item in the 90s. Instead of a belt, I used a scarf that again picks up the black of the strappy sandals.

As this example shows, these sexy strappy wood sole sandals from Coolway can be easily styled in an ageless way. One of the best things about them is that they don’t reveal their secret of being so comfy to anyone, but the wearer. Tweet about this. I ❤ them.

Price-performance ratio

These strappy wood sandals are $99.95. Like the other Musse & Cloud pair I expect to wear them at least for two summers. They are easy to style for a variety of occasions. When you wear them only 2 times per week for two summers, the price-per-wear will be about $1-2. This price per wear is less than an ice-tea at the pool. Like with the free refills of the ice-tea for the designated driver, you can wear these strappy sandals even more. 😉

Coolway provided a Musse & Cloud promo code #highlatitudestyle to receive 25% off at Sole id. It is valid for the next 2 weeks. That means the price-performance-ratio shifts even more to your advantage.

You can get these cool sandals also at various retailers like Nordstrom, or Zappos.

Do you like these sandals? Have you already found your summer go-to sandals? Let me know, I am curious. If not take a look at coolway‘s site. They have so many great choice that there will be more than one pair of shoes that is so you.
