(RO) Nu o sa iti vina sa crezi cat a trebuit sa caut inainte de a ma opri la aceste sandale. Pe cat de simplu este modelul lor, pe atat de greu mi-a fost sa il gasesc intr-o mare de lac, sclipici, tocuri (prea) ametitoare, culori departe de neutrul pe care mi-l doream, preturi nejustificat de mari pentru maxim trei luni de purtare pe an, cat dureaza vara prin partile noastre...Stiam foarte clar ce imi doresc: sandale negre, cu o singura bata, bareta pe glezna, fara alte accesorii. Fiind vorba de incaltari neutre, mi-as fi dorit o pereche din piele naturala, dar preturile mi s-au parut exagerate, avand in vedere ca purtarea doar sezoniera (ce sa facem daca 9 luni pe an trebuie sa ne acoperim picioarele...?). In cele din urma am ales acest model de la Bershka, pe care il gasiti acum in magazine. Au tocul gros, de aproximativ 7 cm, le-am purtat chiar si la o plimbare de seara in parc si orice. Sunt feminine, elegante si va pot deveni cele mai bune prietene. Le-am purtat si cu o rochie din piele neagra!

(EN) You simply won't believe how much time I spent looking for this kind of sandals before finding these ones. As simple they are, the harder it was to find this pair in a sea of patent leather, glitter, way to high heels, colors far away from the neutral I was begging for, too expensive in terms of price for only a three months tops - this is how long summer lasts here, after all -  of wearing per year. I knew it very clear: I wanted black heeled barefoot sandals, no other accessories. As we're talking about neutral shoes, I would have liked a pair made of genuine leather, but I found the pricing overrated, when taking into account the investment in terms of time (what else to consider when one has to keep her feet covered about 9 months in an year!?). Eventually I picked this design from Bershka, which is right now available in their stores. I even wore this 7 cm high chunky pair of heels even for an evening walk in the park and they're also a perfect fit to...anything. They're ladylike, chic and have the potential to become your best friends. I even wore them once with a leather dress!
