Carver Suede Sneaker, Tan
I saw these shoes profiled in an Esquire article in white, but they were very expensive since they were new for this year. So, to save a few $$$, I purchased the same shoes in last year's color: Tan. I was looking to find a pair of casual neutral shoes, and these are it. They are very comfortable, soft, and mold to your feet. They also are easy to walk in, especially in the city. I love how simple they look -- and you can dress them up since the shoes have intricate details with the wingtip design, or you can dress them down since they are, of course, suede sneakers. The color of the shoes are great for the summer since it is a warm tan. I had to get several pairs of these shoes to find the correct size because they run VERY Large. Usually, I am an 8.5 in Men's U.S. Sizes, but I settled for a 7.5. It was a toss up between Size 7 and 7.5, and I opted for the conservative 7.5 since I was planning on wearing these shoes with socks. One can definitely rock these sock-less, too -- which is a sexy look. Be careful when cleaning these shows as the dye is prone to coming off easily. Use a suede cleaner or a white eraser to remove any scuffs.
