Tildon 'Astoria' Oxford
Great to look at, not to wear really
They're more of a novelty shoe, that you can throw on every once in a while to make an outfit more funky, but I would not be able to wear them all day every day. The price is good for how awesome it looks on. However they are hardly comfortable, absolutely no arch support and hard insole, very structured and not molded to a foot. When you bend your foot, the crease will dig into the place where your toes meet your foot. You get what you pay for though. They are pretty cool for once in a while though. Also, your size will depend on whether you plan to wear socks with it and how thick the socks are. With a thin sock/no sock I am a 6, with a normal thick sock I'm 6.5.
Fun but huge
I really adore this shoe, but found quite a few things wrong with it. For one, I'm a wide but small size 8 (sometimes - rarely - I run a 7.5) and this shoe was literally swimming on me. The outer material is quite nice - like a suede, faux animal fabric - and the shape is edgy, which I love, but that's where the awesomeness stops. The laces are long enough for an ankle boot (so you'll have to buy a shorter pair or triple knot them) and the shoe runs wide from the arch to the sole and then very long at the toe. Like I said, I actually have somewhat wide feet, but can wear a normal shoe usually just fine, but these guys were at least a full size too big for me. And the length of them was just unflattering. What girl wants big feet? I was considering sizing down to a 7 or 7.5 but then, while I was taking them off, I slipped and fell on my hardwood floors because the heel is super slick. It's a shame all around because this is a beautifully edgy shoe but I can't run the risk of falling just for fashion. Sadly, I'm returning them.
