Tkees Lilu strappy leather sandals | Editor’s Review

My collection of sandals is vast, and yet until now I always felt like I was missing Something. That something was a pair of fashionable lace-up sandals, like the Tkees Lilu Strappy Leather Sandals ($95). Minimalist in design, these Tkees sandals are exactly what I was looking for: neutral, versatile and comfortable. They’re kind of like 2022’s elevated version of gladiator sandals, and they match the trends I keep seeing all over my TikTok FYP.

What I love about Tkees Lilu strappy leather sandals

The Tkees Lilu strappy leather sandals feature a soft leather footbed and suede laces with a thong style lace up. You can choose from nine different matte colors – there’s a bright green called Emerald, a bright pink called Cerise, a neon orange called Tangerine, a dark red called Port, a pale gray called Fossil, a light sand called Purdy, a brown medium called Hazelton, a black called Bleeker and a dark green called Olive. I chose the olive green hue because, as someone who already owns a variety of brown and black sandals, I wanted something a little more standout but still neutral.

When I first tried them on, I was immediately impressed with the comfort of the Lilu Strappy Leather Sandals. They are soft to the touch, but the insole also has plenty of cushion. The suede laces are easy to tie and won’t slip or slip once you’ve secured them – a must for this style of shoe.

What to Note About Tkees Lilu Strappy Leather Sandals

These sandals are totally light on your feet, which is ideal if you are looking for a comfortable and travel-friendly pair of shoes. It should be noted, however, that the sole of the shoe is very thin and does not offer much support.

To keep them on your feet I found it best to wrap the laces around the back of my ankle first to create a heel strap, then around my ankle a few times and tied in a small knot in the back.
