Delighted customers

``I look forward to receiving my new sandals sometime soon. I actually already have a red and black pair, I have worn them all summer and I absolutely love them!! I have ordered another red pair because I would like to have a pair for 'best'! I have received so many compliments regarding my gorgeous sandals and I am enthusiastically endorsing your wonderful product, I hope you receive many new customers as a result.

I would also like to add that as well as a wonderful product your customer service, website design etc is equally exceptional.

Thanks so much.''

Lyn Bernadzik, Melbourne

``I have the orange suede wedge sandal, and can shout from the rooftops that they are extremely comfortable, and– they don’t squeak when you take a step, as sandals sometimes do.  They’re youthful-looking, but practical for those of us who seek sensible footwear.  The slightly elevated heel (black) is snappy-looking, and they look great with jeans, or a dress.''

Sarah Morse, San Francisco

`My first pair of avarcas are just brilliant!!    I was a bit worried buying online as I have wide feet, but now I’ve worn them for an hour and yes, they’re tight but already comfortable!  Love the colour and can’t wait to order my next pair!!  Thanks so much for your beautiful product and super service!''    

Greer McDonald, Adelaide, South Ausralia


 ``Oh My God. They are the Best. I was a bit disappointed when I first started wearing them. They were so tight and uncomfortable. When I took them off after just bearing to wear them for an hour, I realised there was cardboard inside the foot plate. Oops!! Now they are great. Just deciding on the next colour I will get.''

Christina Artini, Adelaide, South Australia

``I'm absolutely loving my avarcas. It's great to find sandals that are so chic and versatile. You can dress them up of wear them casually, they always look great.''

Kate Kelway, Tauranga


``It's great to learn avarcas are now available here. Since buying my first pair when visiting Spain three years ago I have  literally lived in them all summer, but have been frustrated that I couldn't buy them here. I love their simple classic style and comfort, and know a lot of other women will also. Well done Artisan Shoes!''

Jennifer Bayley, Tauranga
