Review: Leopard and laces…reloaded

What: Lace-up flats in leopard calf hair by J.Crew

When: Winter 2016

How (Material): Calf hair upper, leather lining and soleebelandi_jcrew_flats_calf_leopard_bis_4

Why (Pros):

  1. Look: Very pretty flats. Unlike the previous lace-up leopard flats, the laces here are made of suede or velvet-like material instead of leather.  Both work though I prefer the leather laces 🙂 ebelandi_jcrew_flats_calf_leopard_bis_3
  2. Comfort: Very comfortable.
  3. Quality: Great quality leather and calf hair.  The calf pattern here is pretty unique, the laces are well made as well.  My only complaint is the heel…too close to the ground in my opinion so I foresee early wear and tear if you plan to walk with these a lot.
  4. Sizing: True to size.

Why Not (Cons): The price…

Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper! What do you say?

Review: Collection Harper Calf Hair

The  flats were on popback last week on my size so decided to jump in and try them on.  Review below:

Sissi’s Weekly Review – 21st October 2014 2014

What: Collection Harper Calf Hair by J.Crew

Season: Fall 2014

Material: 100% dyed calf hair outer, leather lining and sole

Quality: Very Good.  Craftsmanship is very good as expected for the price, however, the black spots are not consistent between pairs.  The left shoe looks different from the right shoe as you can see on the picture below.

Fit: True to size.  I’d advise to go with your regular size unless your feet are wider. I tried the patent Harper in one size up and my feet were floating inside so true to size should be way to go.


Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper…if you can go with the mismatch pattern.
