┬áby mkfallon Another FarylRobin winner
1. I've written in the reviews before how much I adore the FarylRobin brand, and this is another example of what they do best - comfortable, elegant shoes that are well-made.
2. I ordered the 'Gold' color and it's a perfect metallic - not too shiny or bright (matches the color of the product shot accurately).
3. A size 8 fit TTS. There's a lightly padded footbed so they seem comfy (at least for now) to wear around for long periods of time. The slingback is a stretchy elastic so it should mold well to individual feet, and seems to stay securely in place. The toe shape is neither round or pointy (I guess somewhere in-between then) with a slight hint of toe cleavage.
4. The bows at the back stick out about an extra 1/2 inch, but don't seem too bulky. The are also slightly off-center and seem to be angled closer to the outside edge of each shoe. I liked this visual effect, especially with the cut-outs by the sling which made the shoe look more interesting.
5. I can't speak for the other colors, but on the gold version, the bow part is soft and pliable leather and I think the rest of the shoe is a stiffer coated canvas (or something similar in feel). I knocked one star off the review thus because the shoes I received in the mail had faint scuff / scratch marks already, which I think is a result of the material. So I don't know if they'll hold up forever per se. Other than that though, the overall quality seems fine for the price point. They are pretty AND comfy - something not always easy to find in flats!

These shoes are lovely! I ordered the gold to wear to my wedding. They are understated and chic, and I'm thrilled with them. I will say that at first I ordered the turquoise and was disappointed when they arrived because the color is not as it appears online; they are dark green rather than turquoise. If that's what you're looking for, they're great, but just know that the color is not as described.
