I just wanted to share a quick review and some detailed pics of the flats, just in case you're interested!
Tory Burch "Caroline" Flats, sz 8
These are THE most comfortable flats I've ever worn. I own over twenty pairs of flats, and nothing compares to these!
-All leather (upper, sole, and insole)
-Soft and comfy
-Elastic band around the top, which allows for some stretch
-Classic Tory Burch logo isn't too big or flashy
-Versatile color goes with anything
-Can be dressed up or down
-Price... An expensive pair of flats, but you really do get what you pay for.
-Needs one day to break-in, which could be uncomfortable at first
-Not much of an issue, but it is more like a ballerina flat than a structured one.
And as for how they wear...
I wore these for the first time yesterday at work, where I walk around all day. I found that it did need a break-in period like any shoe, but it's not terribly uncomfortable. Since these shoes come "rounded" like in the third picture (and like any other ballerina flat), it takes some walking to flatten the shoe to suit your feet. My feet were a bit sore after a ten-hour day, but it was not too bad at all. Today, I wore them again and had no problems. There is absolutely no rubbing at the heel or slipping anywhere within the shoe. The elastic band really does allow for some stretch, so it makes them super comfy, and the leather is so buttery and soft. These shoes are heavenly and well-made, from what I can see.
At first I was hesitant to pay so much for a pair of flats, but it is so worth the money. These shoes also come in black patent, but the nude color goes with absolutely everything, making these a keeper for years and years!
An outfit post with these shoes will be up within the next two days. Please share your favorite investment pieces! I'd love to know. :)
