2019 Footwear tried and rejected

Collection by Chris987

Detaiils on all shoes are in the spreadsheet. The trotters anastasia fit well but I chose a different black loafer. The Eileen Fisher sandals had zero arch support. The miss mooz red sandals were really cute but no cushioning at all in the sole, felt stiff and uncomfortable. The lower heeled Fly Londons were too big and not quite as stable as I'd like due to the strap configuration. The higher heeled ones were super stable but heel just a little too high. The comfortivas felt good but too much fabric covering the foot and looked quite clunky. The Munro Plum slip on did not feel good on feet. Blondo villa 1 3/4" heel just a little too high to be comfortable. Blondo lidia was too short, crowded my toes...heel too loose when went up 1/2 size. Cole haan booties so close but fit was off...this brand is too narrow at the arch area. The Josef Seibel booties were strange, the ankle area was a bit tight, but the toe box was too loose, while the length and width overall were good. The Gentle Souls brown loafers fit just right in a 7, but decided to not buy any more loafers right go with booties instead. Lucky Basel booties well sized at 7.5 but the color was too cool. the grey bella-vita booties were too loose in the heel when the rest of the fit was good, even with an insole added. The Ugg Aureo brown suede were so close...but same fit issues as the Bella Vita. Love the style of the ARA sneakers but not enough padding under ball of foot even with superfeet insole. Miz Mooz booties; toe fit well with insole added but heel too loose and zipper rubbed ankle bone. Lucky basel fit ok but tired of the overly western look
