Tons of compliments
I really like these shoes and have received a ton of compliments. They were a little stiff at first but have stretched out.
Very Stylish But Need to Modify for Comfort
Love the style and quality of leather - I get compliments on them all the time. The issue I had was that the seem on the middle strap rubbed my foot and actually made me bleed on both feet from first wear. It's the smallest rough areas of the leather stitching that they don't make smooth but it's enough to rub and cause pain. I had to get sticky shoe pad strips to put on the inside - now they're comfortable.
These are the perfect shoes for work. They are professional but with a twist, and most importantly are incredibly comfortable. I receive compliments on them regularly, which is always nice!
Be prepared to receive a million compliments with these bad boys! They quickly became my favorite shoes I own (love them so much that I have 2 pairs). They are so unique and extremely fun to style and BONUS very comfortable.
I wanted so badly for these shoes to fit; tried twice (size 38 & 39) but no luck. The leather is beautiful, the style sublime. I've never had this much trouble fitting a shoe before which has made me hesitant to order more FOI as I'm assuming the lasts would be the same.
Hi there! So sorry that the Carmen didn't work out for you. The Carmen is the only style we make on that particular last, so it's likely that a different style would work better for you. We'd be happy to advise on styles if you'd like. Thanks so much for your feedback!
Fit & Sizing
This style runs true to size. If you are in between sizes, we recommend sizing up. If you are a whole size, we recommend ordering your usual size.
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.
