Rated 3 out of 5Â by mahdee Sweet but stiff
This shoe is really cuter than pictured. It is almost beige but not taupe. I'm not sure how to break them in because the leather, although thin, is very stiff - to the point that you have to wear stockings to avoid chapping around the top. The soles are made in Italy and the body in China. Not sure what the leather source is but if it were soft I would probably wear them every day until they fell off my feet. There is ample room for socks if you order a size up from your normal shoe size. If I would have gotten my size they would have been pretty small. They are made pretty well and will be a nice compliment to jeans or skirts. I may go to a shoe repair shop and see if they have any leather softener, they are that stiff. I think they'll last a while unless I snag the lace. In that case, I would just trim it off because there is leather under it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by allyhoppe Order more Black so I can buy another pair
I was a little skeptical to order these shoes based on the reviews and not knowing exactly what my european shoe size is. I am a size 5 1/2 - 6 depending on the shoe. I took a chance and bought a 37Euro, which is technically too big for my foot. The shoe actually fit good! I probably would feel more comfortable in a 36Euro, now knowing that the shoe ran small. The color was definitely different from the picture - The lace is cream and the shoe is the pink color. Overall, I really love the show and I hope Free People brings the black shoe back in stock so that I can have both pairs!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by keepitcoll Great Find!
I found these in the sale section and was blown away by the great price and how pretty the shoes were. I did read the negative reviews but figured I would try them anyways. I ordered them in black and they look really nice in person and similar to the picture. They are a bit stiff at first but easy to wear in and are definitely a stand out piece. I'm considering re-buying in natural!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by melvan Don't hesitate to buy these
I was on the fence about buying these. I heard about them on you tube ..that they were comfy and they certainly looked cute. I came here and saw the awesome price but then bad reviews. I bought these in the natural colour and they're quite pretty. The edge of the sole doesn't have any special finishing but the lace is nice. I wore them around the house for a while and they're surprisingly comfy. The tongue was a little stiff putting them on but that's about it. I think they'll be quite comfy and am happy with the great buy!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by bridgetmkohlhaas beautiful lace detail
I just received these today. I purchased the tan color and they do look a little darker than pictured. These also don't have what appears to be lace detailing around the soles. The lace on the shoe is beautiful and gives a nice vintage feel to these shoes. They are a little stiff , but nothing that overtime will not resolve. I found these to be very comfortable though. All in all I'm very happy with this purchase.

Â by nickynicht Is this even the same shoe!?
Okay, Iâm completely confused. From the pictures on the site, I was expecting a gorgeous, leather, bright red high-top with beautiful lace accents and mustard-colored rubber platforms. I was expecting a stunning sneaker thatâd be perfect for fall. What I got was a dull, fire-engine-red sneaker with a peach -colored platform, and what does not feel like real leather. The platform is actually plain rubber without the dotted texture. The lace accent is NOTHING like the picturesâin fact, itâs a completely different pattern! The whole shoe looks like a Chinese knock-off of whatâs promoted on the website. I was fully prepared for the shoe to be tight initially, sure, and accepted that the fit wasnât totally right at first in spite of it being my size. I was not prepared to get a COMPLETELY different shoe. Iâm so disappointed by the false advertising and have never had this problem before with FP. Even for the mark down I donât know if itâs worth it--order with extreme caution.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Nickname1 what a disappointment!
From the pictures, I was not convinced them that they are leather, but since the description said they are (I am allergic to leatherlikle material, so I checked the description)...I should have trusted my eyes, because they are not. Some sort of cheap material, probably polyurethane. Even not like some soft sneaker material. That's what makes them really cheap looking and uncomfortable (impossible to bend them!), plus my feet started to burn because of that cheap leatherlike material even though they were in them for 5 minutes only! And unlike seen in the pictures, the edge of the soles of the pair I received did not have the lace accents that are seen in the pictures. Was not worth to keep even with the sale price. Returned them today and quite sad about the time and money I spent for ordering and returning them.

Sadly, these sneakers did not hold up to my expectations. I was looking for something cute and comfortable to wear while I am walking to work, walking dogs, living life. These sneakers were promising, but they just are not comfortable. Maybe if you put in the effort to break them in they would be okay, but that is a pretty serious gamble given the cost. It may have been worth a try, but the sneakers were far too distressed for my liking. I'm all for distressed items, but this was just looked old and grungy.
