Another week, another shoe review! Lately, Everlane has been on point (heh) with their new releases. Their heavily promoted Perform Leggings really do perform (my review here), and their newest pointed 40-Hour Flat adds a sleeker look to their flats collection. To be completely honest, I wasn’t enamored by the initial model photos. The flats looked a bit large, for lack of a more descriptive word. So I decided to swing by their San Francisco store after work to give them a try myself. Spoiler alert: I ended up liking them quite a bit.
As mentioned in my Sevilla Smith post – I’m not a “clog person” so to speak. But, the more I saw Bryr clogs on Instagram and blogs, the more I was drawn in. Overall, I like that Bryr has styles that look more like true sandals and less like traditional clogs, so to speak. The thinner, more lightweight wood provides a delicate touch, along with the smaller sole.
I’m fortunate to live near their studio in San Francisco – so I decided to stop by one afternoon and try on a few styles and see them in person. The ladies there were very helpful and patient, it was a great experience overall.
When Rothy’s recently re-released their loafer style, I immediately purchased a pair to try them out. I wanted to compare them to another popular brand – the Birdies slipper, most famously worn by (soon to be princess) Meghan Markle. Overall, both pairs have the classic loafer silhouette with no frills – though Birdies does offer a cute tassled version. They’re comfortable in very different ways, which I’ll go through in the rest of the post.
According to the designer himself, the correct way to store Stuart Weitzman boots (both knee-high and over-the-knee) is to lay them flat. Unfortunately, that method isn’t particularly space efficient, especially if you live in an apartment like I do.
After much scouring on Amazon and the internets, I finally settled on using the following solutions for my 5050 boots and Highlands.
Over the past few years, Stuart Weitzman’s knee-high and over-the-knee (OTK) boots have exploded in popularity. These boots are extremely well-made and maintain their shape for years. However, it’s been confusing at times to keep up with all the styles – especially those that are newer to the scene.
I’ve owned a pair of black leather 5050s for several seasons and love how comfortable and versatile they are. Recently, I added a pair of black suede Highlands to the mix, but I was also curious about the medium-heel-height Alljacks in suede. I decided to put together a comparison of all 3 boots, since most reviews compare the 5050s, Lowlands and Highlands, but don’t really touch on the mid-heel ranged boots.
