Style: 41041146 Colour:
Menswear inspired loafers featuring a statement contrast platform. Padded footbed for an extra comfy fit.
Loved the shoes, fell apart quickly
The back of the sole quickly detached from the platform after two weeks or so - disappointing because they seemed so well made. Free people sent a replacement pair free of charge which was a relief.
Citadel Platform Loafer
These are the most comfortable shoes I have worn in years. Well made, great fit, and you can wear them with jeans, shorts and casual dresses! I wore them the first day when teaching at a University and got so many compliments...a must have for this spring! PS This the first review I have ever written about any purchase..thats how strongly I feel! Great 80's retro throw back purchase!
These shoes are lovely, they are well made and the gold color is lovely. With that said, the size is way way way off! I ordered a size 36 and they look like a 38 on me, I actually had to stuff the show for it to fit. I loved the completes and all but I look like a clown wearing these. So disappointed.
if you like to stand out, these are the shoes!
I wanted to get a pair of oxfords, but didn't want the typical black or brown. I saw a woman wearing a similar pair, and loved how she looked, definitely stranded out from the crowd. Recently saw free people had them, and decide to take the chance. I'm so happy I did! They do make you stand out- for good or for bad ;-) you have to be braver and have the personality to wear them. Yes they are stiff, but it's because they are leather, and I'm sure they will brake in. I don't agree with previous comments- they are comfortable, at least on my feet. Yes, if you can get a size up, you'll be safer. Dearth to be different! Make the difference, and have fun with it!
So beautiful and so, so painful
I could barely even get these on my feet to try them on. They were the stiffest shoes I've ever put on. Every step made me wince, despite the size being perfect. The edges of the leather are sharp and cut into your ankle. I tried with a sock (which isn't how I would have ever worn them) and it helped with the sharp edges, but not much and they were still so stiff and heavy I couldn't even walk around the house in them. Tried again a couple weeks later and still just as bad. Had to return, much to my disappointment. Gorgeous, solid shoe.... just a much too solid.
These shoes are so much fun and can easily add so much style to a simple pair of jeans and t shirt. I originally ordered a 37 because I normally wear a 6.5/7, but they were way too small! These also are very stiff (I purchased the silver). I returned them in store and exchanged for a 38. The new pair I purchasedwere a lot less stiff. Maybe each pair varies? Definitely recommend these even though finding the perfect fit/comfort is a bit tricky. So worth it!
beautiful, but run small!
Bought these in silver, size 39. The leather is a bit stiff and they do run small. I would recommend ordering up a full size to accommodate for both of these issues. They are gorgeous shoes. If you get the fit right and break them in, they're fabulous! Btw, the box sizing for these in a 39 comes as an 8 1/2 US sizing. I typically think of 39 EUR sizing as a size US 9, but not in this case . Points off for sizing issue and stiffness of leather only .
