Everlane day heels (gift to review from Everlane*) | TRUE TO SIZE and COMFORTABLE!!!
Yes, I know, take a moment to recover from the shock. I ASKED for this color, but only after I made sure they were an orange-y red, not a RED red LOL. And they are SO pretty : I love them.
In homage to Everlane’s press release which featured a floral designer wearing the new Day heels going about her business, I thought I’d try it out myself. Haha. Honestly, I would never wear these to shoot new arrivals for slowre in my garage, normally, but I wanted to test them out and see if they’d be good for someone who’s on their feet quite a bit at work, but who still wants to wear a short heel and pretty shoes.
And, quite serendipitously, these arrived as I was just beginning to shoot, so I put them on with what I was wearing and continued about my day. Right off, I was impressed with how the shoes felt on, but still, was wary that I’d be able to wear them for very long. Before I knew it though, I’d worn them for two and a half hours, non stop on my feet running back and forth, and then, when I was finished, I kept them on; I wasn’t DYING to take them off. And that means something. I am notorious for taking off my BRA as soon as I’m home, and finished with my “day”, so…
My feet weren’t sore after wearing these. Yes, my toes needed to spread out a bit afterwards; I’m used to wearing Birkenstocks at home, or sneakers, or nothing too restrictive on my feet, so there was a little pressure there, but nothing substantial. With Everlane’s shoes in the past, I’ve had problems with their being too narrow, and the leather has been very stiff, taking a lot of breaking in that was hard on my feet. These are super-soft leather, and the elastic at the heel really makes a difference in keeping them on my feet (no heel slippage) and preventing blisters.
Oh, and then I wore these again out to brunch, which was really lunch, with my husband on Sunday. Still good.
Finally, a great shoe from Everlane; this is a huge win in my opinion. I’ve liked all their shoes, style-wise, but as I’ve mentioned, have had problems with fit and breaking in. Not these. I really recommend these if you’re looking for a simple, chic, shoe with a heel for work or otherwise.
I also received the new day mules, and those are the same – very good. I got those in black, and have worn them around the house quite a bit and am bringing them to Atlanta for our overnight Passover seder trip today, to slip on at home instead of the sneakers I’m wearing on the plane. More Thursday when they launch.
