Summer shoes

How lovely are these embroidered flats? Inspired by Morocco in the '70s, they'd look great with jeans and dresses.

P.S. This ring is also pretty.

These are BEAUTIFUL! Do you own any Madewell flats already? I have one pair and they are the most uncomfortable flats I have ever worn. So sad!

I've been wearing pointy nude flats for a couple years and they seriously go with everything. I have size 8 feet so they give me an extra inch or two in length that I probably don't need but guess how much I care:)? hehe

I would wear them, but not for that price! I can't justify spending over $25 on a pair of shoes... at least not until I start making more money!!! Ross and Marshall's are my best friends right now.

Love the ring's simplicity.

These are a spin off of traditional shoes from India and Pakistan. The real deal are very comfortable (I've worn a few pairs through), all leather, I always get compliments, and MUCH cheaper! Just google "indian embroidered ballet flats" like here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Indian-Handmade-shoes-flat-sandale-Juti-Footwear-Embroidery-Womens-US-Size-4-5-/191166616011?pt=US_Women_s_Shoes&hash=item2c826b11cb

Pretty in concept, but BEWARE.

Would NOT buy them because they are made in China.

I only buy shoes made in Italy or Spain - the quality is incomparable - comfort, durability, fine design and materials.

They seem very mature...

Meh, I just feel like it's cultural appropriation. Those shoes are extremely inexpensive and ubiquitous in any Indian market (probably the same in Morocco), but they're copied and marked up to $188 with no advantage to the artisans whose traditions those are taken directly from.

Just bought a pair that looks a lot like these...from a street vendor in Morocco! For the first time in my life I'm ahead of a trend.

these are beautiful! i love the shape, and i'm not sure i've ever seen embroidery like that before on a shoe - love it.

I have a custom made, beaded pair that I ordered from Pakistan and wore for my wedding 11 years ago. Love them!

They're lovely and I'd definitely wear them...if they were about a tenth of the price :)

Tish said...

If they offered just one half size bigger yes... Tear

Courtney Adamo said...

Haha! I love that you thought of me when you saw these shoes!!
Right, now I'm off to go check them out. I was just saying I needed a pair of flats... ;) xx

I was really pleased with these wedge sandals. Not only are they very feminine and well made, but they are light weight. I think I could walk in these for hours.solo ad traffic

I LOVE those flats. Have you heard of Kaanas shoes? They're also flats, predominantly espadrilles, but they are GORG. Check them out: http://bit.ly/kaanasshoes
