Yo! I just bought these shoes:
And I have to tell you all the reasons they are so awesome. 1.) I always wanted t-strap shoes. There is an old-time class about them without being crazy stuffy (like patent leather). However, the make of most t-strap shoes and the make of my feet never got along. You see, I have a size 10, maybe 10.5 foot that was born flat (of all the things flat feet means, for me the most annoying is width) and I have gotten used to shopping size 11 because all shoe stores carry whole sizes in medium/narrow width. Sizing up doesn’t help with certain shoe designs, like a t-strap. But THESE SHOES come in wide and half sizes. With the ultimate comfort of leather molding to the foot as it warms and a great insole: these are comfy!
2.) I was already captured by the construction and size options while ‘window’ shopping. I figured I’d save up for the ~$120 purchase (~ for inaccurate memory). A week ago, I was going over my saved shopping list and saw that they had been repriced at ~$36. Holy Cannoli, Batman! I must have those shoes.
3.) Even though I was relatively hopeful because of the sizing and construction (boxy toe for my Birkenstock feet), I have only had few and bad experiences buying shoes online. But they came and they are the awesomest of awesome. I wore them all yesterday with only a couple tiny spots on my feet that will need breaking in.
I am now greedy and spoiled. I need to replace my brown shoes as well with something equally as awesome…and, I am having no luck. Truly amazing shoes are, after all, few and far between.
