  • Hi! You have mentioned these before and I have had my eye on purchasing a pair. Every time I click on Net-a-porter they are sold out in my size range. Same for Saks. Do you have a suggestion for where to purchase? Also, do they run true to size? Thanks so much. I am dying to get a navy pair!

  • Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom also have them.

  • I agree with Alicia. I’ve been wanting these sandals since May. The navy ones are high on my list but I’ve looked everywhere and they have been sold out forever.
    Sort of sad/mad that you keep posting about them.

  • Golly! I certainly wouldn’t be sad or mad that Preston keeps posting about the K. Jacques Triton sandal. They are widely available through many stores, especially when the spring merchandise first rolls out. If you can’t find them now, wait out this season and keep your eyes peeled next spring. You will absolutely find them.

    I have a pair, and they are great!

  • Preston,

    Thank you for reminding us about these sandals!

    I LIVE by the “if you love it, buy in bulk” motto as well.

    So chic, simple and elegant.

    I just ordered TWO pairs on the K. Jacques website in navy and python.

    Off to celebrate National Ice Cream Day. Happy Sunday!

  • Love these in navy.

  • Thank you ladies, for the suggestions. This may sound naive, but I had been to the K.Jacques website and it didn’t look completely legitimate. This is why I kept trying stores here in the U.S. Now that I have gone on the website and I have done the conversion – the price seems higher. It seems that I had seen them in the $225-$250 range. They are $282 on the website. I will be traveling to Dallas in a week, I am going to hit up the Neiman’s & Nordstroms there, maybe I will get lucky. My other shoe-obession is the Isabel Marant clog that Preston has posted twice. In today’s post and from a couple of weeks past. I think I will snag it before it sells out! Thanks again. Alicia

  • Calling any and all Australian fans of Preston’s blog and these sandals… Is anyone selling these in our wide brown land that’s girt by sea? Many thanks.
