Finally, a decent women's wingtip

Reviewed by Jen Pacific from California on Wednesday, February 8, 2017
I have been waiting decades for a shoe like this and am so grateful to Adrienne Vittadini for making it. The first day I got these out of the box, I walked a mile in them and had no discomfort, and since then they have become my go-to work shoes--I work in an office, and these shoes look graceful enough to go with my skirt suits, while also being comfortable and stable for the walking I have to do on the way to and from work. I am seeing more women's oxfords lately and am glad, but sometimes the manufacturers give in to the temptation to make the toe box narrow and cramped--just what I want to avoid. Another big plus, from my point of view: when I took these in to the shoe-repair shop to get heel taps, I asked whether this shoe could be re-soled when the soles wear out, and the guy said yes! This is a rare thing in women's shoes these days and means a lot to me. I do not have all that much confidence in the durability of the sole, which is not leather but is made to look like it.
