Nice Sneakers, Tight Toes
This is my third pair of shoes from Fortress—I keep coming back for the attractive styles and careful craftsmanship. I’m happy to wear my Ninas with almost any outfit, and after about a month of regular wear, they’re still looking great. The speckled sole is a nice detail on these shoes. I went with my usual size (6), but the Nina runs smaller than other 6s from Fortress—the toe bed is a bit tight. I was hoping they’d stretch to fit my foot more comfortably, but I think I should have ordered a size up instead of hoping to wear them in.
I was so excited that Fortress came out with a sneaker. These are great comfortable shoes for walking, look great, and feel great knowing where they were made. They run small and tight - I usually wear a 40/41 in Fortress shoes, but needed to order a 42 for a good fit.
I want to wear them all the time!
I ordered these as soon as they came available and I love them! So glad Fortress got into sneakers. They're really nice quality and I like the tan piece on the back. I'm excited to wear them in and wear them with everything!
