I was quite delighted at the arrival of a (rather absurdly large) package yesterday, finally my Beckett Simonon shoes had arrived! To refresh your memory, I took a chance on this startup shoe company that offers high quality shoes at much lowered prices due to the fact that there are no middlemen involved. I had very high hopes considering how I fell hard for the Grant Wingtips on the website, having already read some mixed reviews, I anxiously opened the very cute box to discover some pretty solid shoes!
I think it is important to recognize the fact that these shoes are only $79, I have purchased many shoes in that price range and the quality will vary. The leather is is very smooth if not very thin, I found the finish on the shoes to look pretty good and the color is great. The stitching is impeccable and the soles appear to be sturdy. I am a bit concerned about cracking & creasing as I have some pretty wide feet and that has been a problem in the past for me. They come with a shoe bag to protect them from dust and a thank you card from the manufacturer. These will look great with some cuffed skinny jeans and cute striped socks! Obviously these are not shoes that you would spend hundreds of dollars on, the look appears to be better than the overall quality but for $79 with free shipping (better than similar shoes at Zara) it is not that huge of an investment for a very dapper looking shoe.
