An Earth classic

Reviewed by sunlit_shadows from Seattle, WA on Friday, December 16, 2011
This is a classic shoe- I had a pair of Earth Solars a few years ago and wore them for about two years before the soles finally gave out.

This time around, the shoe seems to run a little narrower compared to other Earth shoes. The leather is a little stiff too, but not in a painful way and it doesn't rub anywhere. I'm sure that with some wear, it will relax and conform to my foot. The padded heel (at the Achille's tendon) is awesome and something that a lot of the other Mary Janes from Earth don't have. Since the strap is Velcro, it's easy to adjust and it will prevent your heel from slipping (though again, it's a bit stiff due to the newness).

Looks wise, the plum color is deep, beautiful, and shiny. It's subtle enough to be a neutral and go with any kind of pants. Yes, they do make your feet look a little longer from certain angles, but they are cute anyways. They look good enough to wear to work in a business casual office, and for everyday wear.
