This summer I've really been loving my V Slingbacks from Everlane (review here) so I thought I would try out their heeled version, the V-Heel. There's something about the high profile v-shaped front that looks granny-chic yet modern. And the V-heel looks even more granny-chic because of the low square heel. This is a pretty trendy shoe that looks "very right now" but I wonder how it will look a couple of years from now?
First a note on sizing: I got this in my usual Everlane size of 8 and I found that it was a tad too long. The front part felt perfect (and I have slightly wide feet), but my heel kept slipping out the back. I was debating sizing down and trying this shoe again, but I was worried that then the front part would feel too narrow. I then debated on adding a heel pad like this one, which might have worked. But in the end I decided to return the shoe because of the in-between sizes issue and because I'm just not a fan of suede. I can never keep my suede shoes nice and I rather not have to fret about getting my shoes wet or scuffed.
Other than the trouble with the fit, I did like the heel height which is the same as my Day Heels. I really love block heels and wished these fit my feet better and I could almost look past the suede. I guess if you really want to try this shoe then I would advise possibly sizing down (or if you're in-between sizes, definitely go with your smaller size).
Anyway I probably have too many Everlane shoes as it is, so I need to start cutting back. But I can't help it, I really love their well-made Italian shoes.
Anyone else try this shoe and what did you think?
P.S. Also here’s another review of these V-heels from fellow Everlane addict Jamie-lee!
