Hi guys and here's another unsponsored M.Gemi review for you today. As you know I love M.Gemi's Felize loafers (so much so that I now have 2 pairs of these)! But I wanted to try something different so today I'm reviewing M.Gemi's Stellato flats.
First a note on sizing. The sizing for the Stellato flats are completely different from that of the Felize loafers. I'm a 38.5 in the Felize loafers, as recommended by M.Gemi's fit finder, and they fit perfectly. So I just assumed I was the same size in the Stellato. Nope, not even close. These shoes were too big for me and I really should have gotten a 38. So learn from my mistake and do the fit finder for each pair of M.Gemi shoes you buy. The size they recommend will vary.
Now other than the size issue, these shoes were pretty awesome. The leather is more like Everlane's modern point and not Everlane's modern loafer. The leather is a bit stiffer than the Felize so it might take a bit of breaking in. The bottoms of these shoes are also a tad slippery so I would add these anti-slip sole pads. The back of the heel also pinches a bit but nothing heel grips can't fix.
To be honest, I prefer my Felize loafers a lot more than the Stellato just because the Felize took zero effort and time to break in and gave me zero blisters. But I can't say the same is true for the Stellato. So I guess the lesson learned here is that all M.Gemi shoes are not equal (in both size and comfort).
