Shoes, shoes, shoes. There’s nothing quite like receiving a gorgeous new pair of Charlie Stone shoes to kick start Summer style.
Charlie Stone is a mixture of vintage class and modern design. Which is perfect, because we ALL know how uncomfortable some of those vintage heels can be. These shoes are a comfortable alternative to vintage shoes, which are stylish, comfortable and easy to walk in.
The red and white Portofino flats by Charlie Stone Shoes are inspired by the Italian seaside town of the same name. These gorgeous shoes are the epitome of comfort and I’ll happily share that I didn’t receive a single blister. Now that’s #ShoeGoals
I desperately wanted to wear these shoes while I was on holiday in Guatemala recently, but they didn’t arrive in time. No worries, I had them waiting for me upon my return back in New Zealand just in time for Summer to kick in.
How are these shoes so comfortable?
Well, I’m glad you asked…
- Unique flat design with hidden elevation for better arch, ankle and knee support
- Custom cushioned insole
- Soft genuine leather upper and lining
- Flexible and durable bottom soles for prolonged wear
- Comfortably positioned low ankle straps
Fit and Comfort
These shoes do run ever so slightly large so I would potentially go down half a size when you’re ordering. Size down if you are between a half EU size and the lower whole size e.g. 37-37.5 size down to 37. Size up if you are between a half EU size and the higher whole size e.g. 37.5-38 size up to 38).
I’m usually a size 7 to 8 depending on the shoe brand. I chose a size 38 in these and they have a teeny bit of room but not too much (that they’re too big). I’m really happy with the size I chose.
Colour and Style
This style is also available in a blue/white colourway which I also think I’ll be needing. I love how easy it is to wear these two colours together.
While these shoes may look like dance shoes, and often are used for dancing – they’re not designed with dancing in mind.
