Emmy - great work shoe
Emmy looks great with blue or black skinny jeans. I purchased the black weave and these shoes dress up my work outfits. I love Fortress shoes. They are very comfortable, wear well and are beautifully made. I purchased my first pair of Fortress shoes 6 years ago and they still look brand new. Since then I’ve purchased many others; anytime I wear fortress shoes I get compliments.
A little tight..but I think it will stretch with wear. Beautiful color. Keeping the shoes. Love the color.
This is a show stopper shoe. My fifth pair of Fortress shoes, by far my favorite shoe maker. The black braided leather is a stunning detail and the compliments keep coming.
I have purchased three pairs of this particular style of shoe. It is an absolute wardrobe staple. The only thing I would say is that the sole takes a beating and shows wear very quickly. But I have a feeling I will be ordering a fourth pair very soon.
Thanks for your kind words! The leather soles can show wear very quickly. You can take them to a local shoe repair shop to have them add rubber sole savers!
They are perfection. Sleek, versatile, and comfortable right out of the box. They fit true to size and are beautifully crafted. Absolutely worth it!
