Size 38 (US 7.5)
I bought these shoes after a couple of failed experiments purchasing emerging designer brands (see my review on ALLY Shoes and Margaux). I think in short, while these shoes are very design-forward and eye-catching, I think the quality could definitely be better.

So first and foremost, the shoes are super comfy. The leather is really buttery soft and there was zero breaking in period which is always nice. I usually wear a US 7.5 and got the 38 which fit perfectly so no issues there.

The one thing I did have a problem with (which alas runs counter to the my point on comfort above) is that because the leather is so soft, the shoe shape was quite unstructured. The point also became… less pointy? The shoe silhouette started to look a little bit like elf shoes for lack of a better word. I don’t know if this is technically feasible but if there’s a way to marry the comfort of the shoe with more structure, that would be perfect.,,,
