The first day they were a bit tight, but stretched quickly and oh so comfortably. I get complemented regularly in these shoes. They’re all I’ve worn to work since they arrived. I will no hesitate to purchase from here when I’m ready for another pair!
Today, The Post Office has finally notified me about my order. So I've picked them up, and I am very thrilled with my Carmen's. They are very comfortable. I had some pain in my ankle, due to running, and I swear that that pain stopped. I guess it is because of the excitement, but today I choose to believe it is because of the shoes. I think I will soon be ordering the other colors too, because they have really beautiful and unique style! Thank you for making my day.
I’ve always wanted a pair of oxfords but never took the plunge until I came across the Carmen’s. They are so well made, so comfortable, classic with a twist; simply perfection! Highly recommend!
I absolutely love the look and feel of the Carmen! I bought these in the Cream & Scotch color and absolutely adore them! They are truly the most beautiful and unique shoes I own and are very comfortable as well! The only issue is with the sizing. Unfortunately they do run long, but since Fortress of Inca does not offer half sizing, I wasn’t sure if the smaller size would fit. I used the size guide and ordered the size 36 as recommended, so I would suggest to size down if possible as these shoes are not true to size.
These shoes just nail it all. Style-check. Comfort-check. Envy of my shoe loving friends-check. No regrets, worth every penny.
