Disclosure: These Musse & Cloud sandals are a sample from Coolway. The post is not endorsed by Coolway. I wrote it entirely on my own and it represents my own 100% honest opinion.


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. <3

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 <3 .

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.

Sizing of Musse & Cloud Shoes

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.

Styling Inspirations

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. There is this saying

If the frog is up on the ladder, the weather will get better. Click To Tweet

I also added two bangles, my usual signature Hermes collier de chien bangle with its studs and a DIY bangle that was my signature item in the 90s. At the end of the 90s, I lost the stone. I hadn’t the cuff repaired until recently. 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. In a nutshell:
