Guarantees are hard to come by these days because, let’s face it, companies don’t make things like they used to. For example, clothes fall apart in the wash after one wear and, when it comes to footwear, the quality can go from one extreme to the other – either really good or really bad.
One such brand who is all about delivering quality over quantity is Everlane. I wrote about the San Francisso based company back in 2013, when they launched their Canadian website to the excitement of many north of the border. They produce well-made, classic basics such as cashmere sweaters and accessories for men and women at very reasonable prices, plus, their shoes are to die for!
For a very long time I’ve been hunting for the perfect black shoes; ones which can go from day to night, weekday to weekend. And as basic as this may sound, good high quality black leather shoes can be difficult to find, especially when you have very particular footwear tastes – sound like someone you know?
Which is why I said “Screw the low Canadian dollar and the exchange rate,” and bought Everlane’s much touted Modern Loafers for $170 USD – when the thirst is real you deal. These lovely loafers are a shoeaholic’s dream. They’re made of 100 percent Italian leather and are hand-polished – yes HAND POLISHED – to a high shine. Ti amo!
A few days after I bought the Modern Loafers, Everlane introduced a new black patent leather pair online. I think I’m going to need a bigger closet.
