Minnetonka Studded Kiltie Moccasin
I cannot understand how anyone could give these shoes a good rating... except for looking good. However, besides looking good, shoes need to be wearable, as in being strong enough to be worn more than once. The construction concept for these shoes is, well, impractical and unrealistic. How can one expect a threaded string to be able to hold together the top part of the shoe, with just a tiny, hand-made knot on each side? On one of my daughter's shoes, one of these knots became loose, and there is no way to thread it back and make another knot, it's just too short. The leather string that goes around the shoe and ties in a bow in front comes loose constantly. When we try to tie it back, the leather string simply breaks. We tried to make knots in several spots, but how does this look?
The result? We now have a shoe that is falling apart, literally, after wearing it just a few times...
I really like these, very comfy and cute. I normally wear a 8.5. Ordered these in a 7.5 based on other reviews and they fit great!
It's True What They Say
So, go down a size! I missed out on this color for Minnetonka Moccasins in 2012, so don't miss out this year. These will be myspring/summer everyday go to shoes for wearing with jeans. Put them on and you'll get a case of instant happy feet. Love the small silver decorative discs.
The shoe is good looking and comfortable, however I had to return it because it was gapping on my foot at the sides. Moccasins have a tendency to do that. You just have to find the right pair for your feet.
