Super cute, great support for a flat!!
on December 2, 2008
I actually think these look better in person than they do in the picture. I love the rich tan color and while the inside of the shoe looks a bit like an orthopedic shoe, the outside is totally adorable. I am easily able to wear these with jeans or business casual attire. They aren't quite dressy enough for a fancy night out, but they'll get me from a full day of standing on my feet to a bite to eat at a hip bar or restaurant.
The back of the shoe is higher on the ankle than I'm used to, but I think that is because this shoe is designed for walking and support more than fashion - I would suggest breaking in these shoes with heavier socks or moleskin in that area for the first few days.
The fit is exact to size. I typically wear a 7 or 7.5 depending on the brand of shoe - I ordered a 7 and it fits exactly. There's not quite as much arch support as I would have expected from a walking shoe, but there is MUCH more than any other flat that I've owned and this shoe is much cuter than any other walking shoe I've seen. I'll be taking these with me on my trip overseas next year!
