Sandal Up –Time to StRide with Harley Davidson Footwear

Harley Davidson is known for many things.Bikes, bikers, leather and even boots.  In fact, we have really fallen in love with their sexy and comfortable fashion line of boots.  We’ve reviewed a few fabulous pairs already.  And, at the Spring/Summer Harley Davidson preview, The Advice Sisters got an eye-full of beautiful boots, but it’s really going to be a hot Summer, and we figured that for this season, our feet would like to be relatively UNfettered from too much leather.

Boots are chic, but they’re hot.  So for Summer, we are reviewing sandals.  Yep, Harley Davidson Footwear’s fashion line has those, too.

There were a number of sandals to choose from, and I was torn between these “Coral”  clogs (srp $100)  and the Jeanne Sandals (srp. $90.00 ), but the Harley-Davidson Footwear’s Women’s Jeanne Sandal won out.

The Harley Davisdon Footwear Jeanne Wedge Sandal combines a graceful Silhouette with an edgy wedge and silver studs

Why the Jeanne? For starters, there is something both feminine, but edgy, about a high, black leather wedge, with silver tone studs, but the silhouette is really quite elegant.  You can wear this sandal with jeans or shorts, but it looks perfectly at home with a long skirt or a sun dress.

I love the back details on these sandals. As with all of the Harley Davidson Footwear fashion line, the leather is soft and luxurious, full grain leather upper, nicely finished and lined (with a full length cushion sock lining for comfort) so it won’t cut into your tender skin and cause blisters.

The Jeanne wedge makes a statement the minute you slip it on.  The sandals are no lightweights. They’re substantial with a weight of 14 oz.   But it’s here that I have to add a bit of caution. The  heel height is  4 inches and the platform height is 1 inch. For many women this isn’t going to be an issue at all, because they are used to walking around on high wedges, but if you are not, the Jeanne takes a bit of practice to walk in them.  When I started to wear test these sandals,  the height plus the added weight made me unstable,  and that meant that I had to really watch how (and where) I placed my feet or risk a sprained ankle.   New York City streets are notoriously uneven, and I nearly tripped a few times. I decided that while the Jeanne looked like a fabulous walking around town sandal, flatter ones closer to the ground might be a safer choice, at least for me for that kind of activity, and I’d keep the Jeanne for when I wasn’t going to be traipsing around so much.

The smooth leather on the insole made my feel so slippery in these sandals and I was already up so high, each step I took was  actually dangerous.  I had to stop and wipe my feet best I could before I could manage to make my way.  Note:  Do not apply any kind of oil or lotion to your feet if you are going to be wearing shoes or sandals without socks.

There are plenty of other Harley Davidson Footwearsandals (and boots, of course) ready for the picking for Summer. So sandal up!  You can get harley davidson Footwear sandals and boots at places like and plenty of other places. For more information visit
