Without a doubt, the sandal is still selling well today.

3. Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Sandals Are Extremely Comfortable to Walk In

They are so comfy that you can actually dance in, and I’m not exaggerating. The Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Sandals have long praised as the most comfortable heels ever worn by many people. Do a simple search and you will have no doubt about that.

The secret lies here. The shoe features a woven detail at the toe, a T-bar ankle strap with side-fastening buckle and a leather instep. The adjustable strap with buckle closure ensures a snug fit on every foot. Furthermore, most Tributes are made of 100% soft calfskin. Some of the more special ones are made of other material combinations such as denim, cotton, and goatskin.
