Rated 5 out of 5┬áby JustSayYes New favorite shoes!
When I saw these in the catalog, I had to have them! Can't beat the price, or the flexibility of wear. I love that these simple shoes can easily go with a dress or a pair of jeans.
I've only worn them twice--the first time, I had to wear a bandaid to avoid a blister, but it was fine by the second time around. Both times, I received multiple compliments from friends and strangers.
Super excited about these guys. :)

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Coupious A little stiff but so, so cute
I've been looking for successful, actually wearable oxfords for a painful number of years, and finally I have found them in these. They start out a bit stiff, and I'm still wearing a band-aid on my heel when I plan to walk in them for miles, but I can easily get away with a normal day sans heel protection. The pinky red sole is adorable; it's exactly what takes these from boring and too menswear-y to fun and flexible, easy to wear with dresses and jeans, transferable from summer to fall. The suede is a pale color, which helps them be so easy to wear even in July, but it also makes for easy stainage, so one has to be careful. But even after one incident while traveling, the slightly dirtied up version just looks well-worn and sweet.
The cut is very nice, not too pointy or too boxy, and I fit into my smaller size option without trouble. (I vacillate between a 6.5 and 7 in many shoes, and the 6.5 was perfect for these.) The amount of support isn't exactly phenomenal, but it's more than one gets out of a traditional ballet flat. I've definitely worn these on heavy walking days without a problem support-wise, and will continue to do so. I actually wish they offered a pale tan version, too, so I could have options!

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Chumbie Unexpectedly awesome!
True to size, very comfortable and love that pop of pink from the sole. Definitely something I would not wear on rainy days. Perfect with rolled up or cuffed jeans/pants!
