Its been a long time since I’ve done a review post! Nothing was really catching my eye for a while there. At least at a reasonable price. Until these. I adore so many of my J. Crew shoes. They are my daily go-to work shoes. Especially the Sloan flats. I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed when I saw the Sloan flats were being phased out. They were replaced by the Sadie flats, which honestly didn’t impress me at first. But when I saw the snakeskin version, I knew they were worth a try.
Style: These flats were designed beautifully. The colors are stunning and go so well together. It really makes them quite versatile and trendy, but classy at the same time. I love the sleek style and minimal embellishments as well. The deep V vamp does shoe a little toe cleavage, but not too bad. Very wearable.
Quality: I’ll be the first to say that J. Crew shoes (and everything else) can be hit or miss as far as quality goes. These are quite a hit. At least the pair I got. They are a tasteful snake-embossed leather. The lining is leather and the sole is man-made. The seams were well done and completely smooth. No irregularities or weird issues. Really, nothing to complain about.
Sizing: I’m a true to size 6, but often size up to a 6.5 to allow for swelling feet! I was really quite tempted to size up to a 6.5 for this pair, especially being pregnant, but I stuck with the 6. And it was a good decision! These run totally true to size, not small at all. My feet had the perfect amount of room to swell, lol.
Comfort: And the most important thing… comfort!! This is why I buy J. Crew shoes. Any brand can make an attractive shoe, but not a comfortable attractive shoe. These are a bit stiffer than the suede versions, but that’s to be expected. As such, they do take a bit longer to break in. But the break-in period isn’t bad at all. Mild rubbing, but no blistering or anything like that.
Overall: Recommend! If you like the style of these, I’d give them a go. If you’re not into the snakeskin, they also come in a basic suede and a leopard print (more of a loafer version). But those are pretty basic and you could probably get something similar for a bit less (although they do go on sale intermittently, making them a better deal).
That’s all I got. Let me know if you’ve found anything good lately!
