versatile shoe that goes with any outfit
Classic and perfect shoe
Love the Rachel - part sandal, part heel, goes with everything. Beautifully made. Takes a bit of breaking in but super comfy once you do.
Wear Them Everywhere
I literally wear them everywhere - work meetings, casual weekend events, everyday Trader Joe's runs - you name it, I'm wearing my Rachel's. They are comfortable, chic yet casual, and easily go from day to night. Easily the best shoe decision you'll make to date
Go-to every day shoe!!
My co-workers keep calling me out for wearing these EVERY DAY because I can wear them with everything from jeans to dresses to wide leg cropped pants (my fave combo). I LOVE the Caramel color, looks great with everything and the leather is very high quality--I can tell these will last forever!! Honestly, my plan is to slowly get rid of all my other shoes and phase Fortress of Inca into my closet....next up is the Michelle--I'm coming for you!!!
Beautiful but didn’t work for me
I was so excited to see a blush slide from Fortress and ordered a pair in my normal size (7.5 or 38). Unfortunately the slide was too narrow for my foot and I had to send them back. I did consider keeping them with fingers crossed that the leather would stretch over time but my practical side took over and they went back. The shoe was high quality and very stylish, it just didn’t fit me right.

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.
