I went shopping a few weeks ago and imagine my surprise when I actually saw these bad boys in my local store. At first, I thought they were just display objects and then I realized they were actually the shoes I had been considering after reading someone's beautiful review ( I wish I could remember and give due credit). I had been thinking Mink but they had Nut and it was exactly what I wanted.. tan but with gray. They had the laces done funky, which was real annoying. I asked why and the salesman said, "I don't know. It's J Crew." Okay.
On me. Give me just the right amount of boost. They already have a generous foot bed:
Hopefully you can see the heel pad. There is also a foot pad. Kind of like a built in foot petals.
I find them extremely comfortable. Just like a Clarks Wallabee's more sophisticated cousin. I wear a size 9 and found them true to size. I also thought they made my feet look a little smaller (always a good thing). I'm sure someone can rock them with skirts, shorts, bikini, but I will be sticking with jeans and cords (straight, boot, flare - not sure about skinny).
