A little bit clog, a little bit mule. Abby’s asymmetrical seam detail adds the perfect edge to this simple silhouette. The chunky heel and high cut mean you can go far.
This style runs a little small. If you're in between sizes, we recommend sizing up. Check out our fit guide for your size recommendation!

Gave these shoes to my daughter for Christmas and she was thrilled except- they didn’t fit. These ran way small. So nice the are worth the trouble if an exchange.
Boy, I've had a tough time with Fortress shoes. After trying the Madeline- a style I desperately wanted-- in two different sizes (39 too big, 38 too small), I ordered the Abby in a 38 (too small) and then again in a 39 (finally!). They fit fine and are OK comfy, but are definitely not my favorite shoe like I was hoping. I invested in a pair of Fortress shoes thinking they'd be my "go-to-everyday, or at least a couple times of week" shoe, but I wear these about twice a month. If I were to do it again, which I probably won't, I might try the Chloe mule. I have friends who rave on and on about their Fortress shoes, I love the company's mission and I think the styles are beautiful-- and also SHOUT OUT to their EXCELLENT customer service--but please be aware that if you're solidly a half size the sizing and fit of the shoe is a big gamble and you will never get a refund (which after trying 3 different shoes I was losing hope and just wanted the refund) due to Fortress' return policies. One star for the actual shoes and one star for great customer service.
I'm really sorry to hear that you've had a tough time finding the right pair of our shoes. Since you were originally into the Madeline, and it sounds like you're open to buying a mule, I would highly recommend the Michelle. I am confident that they will work perfectly for you! I am happy to hear that you had a good customer service experience with us. I did some digging and it sounds like the reason we were unable to issue a refund was because you had already worn the shoes. I'm sure you'll understand that we just aren't able to accept worn shoes as a return, so that's why we presented you the option of a store credit. It was the best we could do in that situation. Anyway, we do hope that you'll consider us again in the future, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything else. All the best, Evan founder, Fortress of Inca
As with all my previous purchases, a very comfortable clog - love that the style is both retro and modern, and the burgundy color is a rich twist on a neutral.
I really love these shoes and got them with a coupon for $50 off, however IMO they are overpriced for what they are. I do like them in every way but I held back from this brand for years because of the price point. They also run a size small - I’m usually a 8.5 and the 39 worked for me after an exchange.

Stylist tip: It is often best to buy leather shoes that fit snug upon first wear. This will allow them to soften and stretch around your feet.
