So I have to admit a draft of this review for the M.Gemi Fortuna flats has been sitting in my list of reviews fooooreeeever (as in I have a place holder for it and sometimes some pictures but I haven't been able to write this review). And it's because even though this the Fortuna fits well, and looks pretty, it's just not something I wear often (or at all really). I rarely even think of this shoe when I'm creating outfits. But the weird thing is that it doesn't mean this shoe is bad. In fact I think the shoe itself is really awesome (I'm pretty sure it's because I don't really like the color of this suede shoe on me).
What do you think?
Anyway the shoe itself is really great! First the fit finder worked well for me on finding the right shoe size (it's failed me in the past with The Dolcetto and The Stellato). It recommended the size 38 which fit perfectly (I'm a 38.5 in the Felize and usually a size 8 in Everlane shoes and size 7.5 in TOMS). I also love that these flats have a pointed toe to help elongate the leg and they're super simple overall. Plus they're really comfortable to walk in (though not quite as comfy as The Felize, which are still hands down my favorite M.Gemi shoes). But like the Felize they're really forgiving on wide-ish feet like mine). And actually like the Felize, they lack a but of arch supports so it's probably better for your feet to add something like these to the shoes for prolonged wears.
In the end I don't wear these shoes that often because I don't really love the color and the suede material (it's so hard to keep clean). But lucky for you guys it now comes in new colors and even better, made of Italian Nappa leather (I love napa leather, it's the stuff Prada uses a lot). I really love the gray pair (but eek the hot pink?). You can find them here.
