I had been wanting to jump on the menswear-inspired shoe bandwagon for a while but was waiting for a pair that really spoke to me. I wanted some that were manly, yet feminine. You know… The elusive perfect shoe that is super hard to find. However, As soon as I saw the Heeled Oxford from Everlane I knew it was the shoe I had been looking for.
I had never ordered any shoes from Everlane, but since they were made in Italy I decided to give it a go. I had read many positive reviews about their shoes. Worst case scenario, I hated them and had to send them back. It would be a pain in the tookus, but not the end of the world.
I placed my order and not so patiently waited for them to arrive. You guys… They were beautifully made. You know I love well made, quality shoes. These were good. REALLY GOOD. Unfortunately, they were too small. (I told you I was still figuring out the sizing at Everlane.) I sent them back and reordered them in the next size up.
Winner, winner, chicken dinner! The next pair fit and I love them! PRO TIP: They run small. I wear an 8 or 8.5 and ended up with a 9. I love the chunky heel. The height gives the shoe a bit of femininity, but does not affect walkability. They are still a bit stiff, but I know they will break in nicely after a few wears. I wore them all day to work one day this past week and didn’t get one blister. Winning!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it so much.
