This is a cute, funky, comfortable shoe. I ordered this in the white and the shoe version in the brown. The leather is super soft and the contrasting laces are really cute. The holes go all the way through, which is kind of cool because you can add a color or contrast by what color socks you choose. I tried on the white with black socks and then red just for fun. The sole
is really cushy and seems like it would be comfortable even if your on your feet
all day, but there's a bit of a heel that doesn't run the whole width of the shoe, so, oddly, there's just a hint of a balancing act when wearing this otherwise comfortable shoe, but it's no deal breaker. I think it's just a perk that this shoe would be so comfortable, not it's main purpose. I love that it's so unusual. It did feel a little fragile, like it wouldn't last through tons of wear. And the suede was delicate and seems easily marred but it's not really an every day style anyway. The main drawback is that it stinks. It's got this awful, chemical smell. I left the box open for a week and it didn't seem to subside and made my whole apt smell toxic in the meantime. So I, reluctantly, sent them back. But I'm still bummed about it because they're really cool otherwise. Maybe if they were really cheap I'd wait it out, but not at the price they are. I'd rather pay more for a Camper
shoe which are similarly funky and comfortable without the stink.
