So excited to finally be able to share these with you now that they’re available online (if you waitlisted them..)! I’ve had these new Everlane slides for a week or so now, and have worn them about a handful of times. They are incredibly comfortable (no break in time!) and super easy to wear. Everlane first sent me my true size (8), which was much too big/long/weird AND actually cut into my ankle a bit, so I asked for a smaller size. The 7.5 is perfect on me, and even though they’re narrow, I didn’t have any problems at all with my toes feeling squished as I did to a small degree with the modern loafers.
The leather on these is softer and has more give than the loafers, and like I said, I wore these right out of the box with no problems at all. They arrive with the heel down (you walk on the heel, basically, like a traditional babouche), but you can wear the heel up like a shoe. I have never tried to do that, nor would I, honestly.
This is truly a great shoe: well-made, sophisticated, comfortable, and affordable. For me though, and my thicker calves, I generally prefer the more “open” style of my Emerson Fry slides though because showing more of my foot helps elongate my legs. Overall these are so chic, and they’re all the rage right now (ACNE studios has an identical style for a lot more $$$). AND these have much more support than a traditional style Moroccan babouche.
