Tried and True: Soludos Shoes
I discovered Soludos while looking for a pair of shoes to gift to a family member. I was immediately enticed by the adorably embroidered espadrilles, and added to cart. One Instagram follow and I quickly became obsessed, staying updated on their new releases, and of course, sales. I FINALLY caved and purchased a few pairs for myself - and I’m reviewing them from top to toe!
Ibiza Platform Sneaker in White Leather
You couldn’t ask for a more classic sneaker. I was immediately impressed by how soft the leather was, and the way it molded to the foot unlike some of the chunky leather sneakers I’ve owned. They are comfy, stylish, and still manage to be my favorite part of any outfit despite their simplicity.
Comfort level: 9/10 - I opted for a size 8.5 solely because I like my sneakers to be a looser fit (but I don’t want my heels to be slipping or sliding). The 8.5 works great for my personal preference, and they are comfy enough to walk around all day in.
Venetian Mule in Tan Leather
I jumped on the mule trend train and am happy to report that I was not disappointed. These simple slides can take you from work to casual in literally one step! Best part - you can just slide them on and go, knowing they will look flawless with your outfit. I usually vary between a size 8 and 8.5, and opted for the 8 to account for any potential stretching in the leather.
Comfort level: 8/10 - These did rub uncomfortably against the inside of my foot for a bit during the first couple wears. I expect this with any leather shoe, and fortunately it went away quickly!
Sophia Block Heel in Black
I’ll start by saying I don’t know WHAT I would do without this simple heel in my work wardrobe rotation. These go with everything, from dresses and skirts to slacks. They are uber comfortable, I can walk in them for extended periods without feeling that I’m-wearing-heels foot fatigue! I got these for a STEAL on sale, and I could not recommend them more. (AND aptly named after the lovely co-creator of this blog!)
Comfort level: 9/10 - super comfy, and the suede is so soft. I never experienced blisters. I opted for a size 8 once again, which fit perfectly.
Overall, I can officially consider myself a satisfied customer!
