These shoes are absolutely gorgeous! My most versatile Charliestone that I have purchased. They can be dressed up, casual, summery, autumnal, they really are incredibly versatile with any outfit.
They are unfortunately however, the most uncomfortable pair I own.
They fit rather tight and the sandals like design means my toes get pinched in between. The back also rubs on my heel causing blisters any time I wear them. I’m hoping in time they will become more comfortable to wear, as they truly are so beautiful.
Hi Gabriele, so sorry to hear about your Montpellier flats not feeling as comfortable as the others you have from us! If you can, please use some thick socks and a hairdryer to heat up and soften the leather over a few sessions to see if that helps. Let us know how it goes!
The shoes were perfect as always, however the shoe box was not wrapped properly for transit only taped up and shipping label applied directly to the box. While the shoes are thankfully undamaged, the box is very damaged due to the tape, labels and transit through the postal system. Orders I have made in the past always came wrapped to protect the original box and afford better protection for the shoes inside. It would be preferable to place the box inside a cardboard shipping box or wrap it in brown paper (both environmentally friendly) so the original box does not get so damaged.
I have tried to wear them a couple of different times around my house, hoping that they would stretch enough to be comfortable, but they just became too painful on my pinky toes specifically. They are absolutely adorable and I love the clasp. I would love if you guys designed an option that is even a bit wider, with a longer ankle strap. I could potentially try sizing up, but just can't afford to right now. If the shoe (that one specifically) came in a true wide size I think you would significantly increase your customer base. Love the design, so sad I can't wear it!
I was a little disappointed in the look of the bottom of the shoe, and the lack of "grip." Everything else looks great.
Anyway, if you all come out with a true wide Montpellier shoe, I will be your very first customer, whether or not the base is changed!
