Beautiful and immediately comfortable
Got these in the gold. Wore them for about 8/9 hours at a wedding with no problem immediately out of the box. No breaking in or rubbing or issues. They are obviously beautiful so I am very excited to wear these for any and all occasions and not worrying how my feet will feel at the end of the evening!
Beautiful Like A Piece of Art
Wonderful craftsmanship and design!
I absolutely love these shoes. I typically don’t purchase round toe shoes (pointed toe shoes are more my style) but I was drawn to the unique wood heel. They are so very different and the hand styling is superb. The shoes are comfortable to wear as well!
I’m a stylist and can stand on my feet for upwards of 9 hours during a work day and walk countless miles I’m sure. These shoes were immediately wearable for long periods of standing. Super beautiful and chic. I receive compliments every time I wear them. This is my second pair of staple shoes from fortress and I will buy more in the future. High quality, timeless styles that can stand the test of time from someone who isn’t exactly “easy” on their shoes. Don’t walk.. run to get that beautiful pair that will sell out. You’ll pass them down to some lucky soul when you’re done, guaranteed.
Surprisingly light and very well made. Look great with dresses and pants. 5/5
