These shoes are very attractive, they amp up my casual black slacks to something quite professional. However, the velcro straps that keep the decorative elements in place (and the shoe on my foot!) come detached easily. Since I squat down frequently in my job (I'm a veterinarian) it was not practical to wear them to the office when I had to constantly re-fasten the straps all day. Bummer.

Cute looking shoes, unfortunately they are too large for me. I ordered size 10.5, they seem to be at least size 11.5. They went back. That's why I would not recommend them. One more comment - the quality of this shoe is not as great as Ara or ECCO products.

I typically buy Dansko shoes for work, but decided to try these Porlandia shoes and I'm quite happy. They fit a standard European size 37 are comfortable for my commute and walk and are sleek and classy looking with my black slacks.
Best Uses: Work
Pros: Classy Work Shoe, Comfortable For Commuting, Love The Velcro Buttons

these were so incredibly well made, I loved the color (burnished gray I think it was) and the adjustable straps and quality of the leather. I wanted to keep these shoes SO bad. But they were very slightly tight and I didn't want to chance it, so I sent them back. For someone who has patience for the 'break-in period', that probably wouldn't matter.
