FSJ Shoes Review: Sandals for Winter Sun

I know I know, it’s November, and I shouldn’t be talking about anything flip flop or sandal related!

But…I know there are plenty of people who holiday in the winter months (we have!) and so therefore, it seemed only fair to showcase a pair of glittery sparkly sandals…right?!

When it comes to owning a pair of sandals, I don’t think we can have enough of them.  I mean, heels seem to be far less and in-between nowadays, with many of us women opting for a flatter shoe when dressing up on an evening, especially whilst on holiday.  With swollen burnt feet, and the uncomfortable walking in a stilleto heel can take, why would anyone want to wear such a challenging shoes whilst on your break away?!

Now a know wearing a heel can offer confidence, height and that little bit of sass, but sandals come in all shapes and sizes, and seem to have increased in their popularity over the years, hence becoming more appealing to the eye.

This is where FSJ comes in…

What is FSJ?

FSJ (Funny She Jill) is an online shoe store, offering an array of shoes for all.  Launched in 1998, FSJ provides a complete assortment of FSJ merchandise to clients internationally, and whilst most of their customers are based in the US and Europe, they do ship worldwide.   FSJ insists on the quality and upholds the excellent high standard of crafts.

When visiting FSJ online store, straight away you’ll realise that it’s pretty easy to find what your looking for.  Hoover over the ‘Shoe’ symbol and you are immediately shown a variety of shoe styles that you can peruse by style.  This is so helpful as straight away your filtering out what you may not want to see.

When you have chosen what style shoe your looking for, you can then filter this search down even further with a filter option available.  For example, you can filter according to price, colour, heel hight, heel weight, occasion, even on season.

FSJ has a HUGE offering of shoes for sale, and so it was pretty exciting working my way through their website – I’ve never seen so many shoes – it was shoe heaven!  You name it, FSJ shoes will have it.  So if your after that particular heel size, extravagant style or even a unique colour, chances are FSJ will stock it.  The sky is literally the limit!

Pink Bow Rhinestone Sandals

After perusing the online shoe store for what seemed like forever, I finally set my heart on a pair of sandals.  These were a little different and not a pair that would blend in that’s for sure!  But, I was really wowed by their extra detailing and unique look.FSJ Rhinestone sandals pinkWrapped in their own individual dust bags, as soon as they arrived I could tell they were of fantastic quality.  The rhinestone details across the top section of the sandal are intricate and pretty.  And not forgetting all that gentle wrapping to tie up my leg!

My only criticisms is that their seems to be a lot more wrap material than shown on the website.  However, I am happy to cut some away to suit the size of my legs.

How to order form FSJ Shoes?

Ordering your shoes from FSJ  is super easy.  The pricing is marked up in dollars.  The sandals I chose were $79, so approx £60, and for the detail on offer for these sandals, I feel that is a fair price.  FJS shoes offer the option to purchase your shoes via Paypal, making that transaction safer and quicker for all.

You can also add customisation to you order!  This means you can add a heel in the size you want, change the width (which is perfect for those with wider feet) or simply chose a different size from those on offer (again, perfect if you have extra small or large feet).  There are additional charges that do apply, but I have never seen this option on any shoe store site before, so this really stands out as a plus for me.  You can even upgrade to leather!

Shipping is via DHL and is usually between 5-15 days (get your Christmas orders in ladies!) and you’ll be happy to hear, shipping is FREE!

FSJ also offer a money back guarantee!  This means you can return or exchange your purchase within 30 days.

Overall, I was overwhelmingly impressed with FSJ shoes and the abundance of shoes on offer.  Seriously, there is something for everyone! So next time you get some ‘you time’, grab a cuppa and head over to FSJ to browse what they have on offer. Add some shoes to your wish list (or Christmas list!) and enjoy!
