Cute but fits loose

i had my eye on these for a while and took advantage of STPs great sales these were uber comfortable to stand in, size 6 fit perfectly. I had no issues with the steps or buckle in terms of being unpleasant against my feet or being too bulky.(my husband disagreed, inspire of my comparing these with a pair of Gladiator FitFlops with thick straps/buckles) loved the color and was looking forward to wearing them with everything till I walked around the house in them. I was happy to find these saddles didn't have a long toes area, but when I walked my feet moved forward and back in the shoe and my toes went off the front. I have cute little feet with short toes to match so having them wrap around the toe edge was strange in deed! The straps are loose over the toes so the only thing to hold your foot in place is the ankle strap, but since I have experience with this kind of strapping I didn't sintch them as tight as they could go. This allowed my feet to wallow all over the foot bed. Standing n one spot these were so dreamy, but every step was precarious at best. Had to return them. I also noticed the rattan woven pattern on the outside of the platform was not securely connected to the shoe where it seamed on the sides and was already fraying 5 minutes out of the box! Had the shoes been keepers in every other way I would have had my amazing hubby glue the seams down. These are not cheap shoes and I think this small detail should not exsist, but this could be why we are getting them at such a great price too.
