The Catrina sandal from Naturalizer is not a trendy sandal, but it isn’t dated or frumpy either. It’s extremely comfortable, and I’m not the only one who thinks so — read the rave reviews. The footbed is extra cushioning and the leather is buttery soft. The one and a half inch heel is supportive and manageable. The low vamp is flattering on the foot. Lightweight, spongy and casually versatile. 

The style is available in four colours, of which the white and black get my top vote because they look the most current. The pewter is classic, and the brown quite earthy. The style is available across four widths and up to a size 12. The narrow width fit my low volume feet really well, and I did not need to size down half a size. 

If you’re doing a lot of walking in hot weather this Summer, and the oh so trendy Birkenstock is not for you, try the Catrina. It looks a lot better on the foot and in outfits than you might expect, and the comfort level is astounding. Forgoing a little fashion for happy feet is NOT a bad thing.
