Evelyn Women's Retro Oxfords (Grey/Black)
This product is on Last Chance and is non-returnable.
How better to complete a 1920s or 1930s sporty ensemble than with a perfect pair of Evelyn oxfords? These retro spectator oxfords are made of tan canvas combined with black leather on a 2 3/8" / 6 cm Spanish heel and insole arch support.
Evelyn's dapper design draws on men's vintage shoes, but combines the masculine motifs with the beautiful arch and toe of a well-heeled lady's oxford. Enjoy Evelyn all Summer and Fall, with true vintage, retro, and modern outfits.
The description states that the shoe has a 6cm heel. It is in fact it has a 7cm heel. Not happy about it but going to keep them anyway.
Hi Ginger! The Evelyn heel is 2.625' or 6.67 cm tall. Thanks for pointing out that there was a mismatch between the heights listed in the description and the materials tab, we've fixed that now! Do keep in mind, when measuring heels one measures straight down to the floor from the top of the heel, not diagonal along the back surface of the heel. Measuring down the surface of the heel will give an inaccurate height.
Not long after buying my first pair, these went up for order and when I saw them I HAD to have them! Usually I'd go more for the darker colors as they compliment my style and clothes, but when I saw them in tan/brown I knew they were the pair. (1999's The Mummy is one of my all-time favorite movies and the fact that these share the name of the main female character who I aspired to be growing up, and look extremely similar to her Librarian Outfit shoes, MAY have had something to do with my purchase as well.) Once again I was worried as my feet are larger (US 11) but again my only need is to slightly stretch the right one as I need to do with all my shoes now. The insole arch support make them comfortable to wear for hours and I have worn them as such at work where I am on my feet for 6+ hours a day. My only other concern was ankle support, but the heel makes it very easy to walk in! The laces are a bit stiff, but extremely easy to replace.
I was actually a little disappointed in these. The design is good and they are quite comfortable, but I thought the leather looked a little plastic-y and the canvas adds to the impression of cheapness. They seem to be well made, they just don't look as polished as most of my other AD shoes. I guess I should have taken that "sporty" descriptor more seriously.
These shoes are incredible! They're comfortable and were easy to stretch to accommodate my wide feet. They seem sturdy but look really sleek on. I'm confident that they'll last a long while! I just ordered another color, and I might just get a third pair. I'd love this fit of shoe in solid leather colors one day. So cute!!!
