For almost the entire year, I’d been ranting and raving about Rothy’s shoes to friends and loved ones. To my excited delight, my sisters got me a gift card for Christmas for my very first pair.
*UPDATE* Since posting these, I have sold these shoes and bought a larger size in a different color (6.5) … I’ve also tried size 7, which was slightly large for me and kept slipping off the heel. Size 6.5 is perfect for me! Don’t be dissuaded by the strange sizing—for those who can’t try them on in-store, Rothy’s has a great 30-day return & exchange policy so long as the shoes are unworn. Rothy’s shoes also have great resale value in the online secondhand market.
I ordered The Point in Mink. For most shoes, I float between size 5½ to 6. I took the advice of sizing up for wide feet and got myself 6’s (again, I later sized up to 6.5 because size 6 was just a touch too small).
Mink is an incredibly beautiful color, described as a “warm taupe” but I think it does lean towards purple in some lights. It’s versatile and can be paired with so many outfits, which is why I chose it.
