Shopping: Boden T-Bar Flats

Ah, Boden. You have done it again. It’s no secret that I really love Boden’s shoes. They come in interesting styles, and they usually have a good selection of flats. So, I ordered another pair: the Strappy T-Bar Flats, in navy. I am going to a wedding at the end of the month, and my dress is mint green (from Rent the Runway, meaning I haven’t actually seen it in person), so I figured navy shoes would work with it.

I have to be honest, I don’t really even know what size shoe I wear any more. Usually a 10 fits, but when things are pointy and dressy, I’ve found I need to go up a half size. Then again, sometimes a 9.5 fits, there’s a lot of guesswork involved. I got the size 10.5 or size 42, since that the size that worked for me for the Alice Flats, and they fit pretty well.  I do wish that there was one more hole on the strap at the ankle, but I can work with the somewhat loose ankle area.

Quality wise, the shoes are decent. They are suede and lined in leather, with a plastic sole. There’s a bit of cushioning in the sole, which I appreciate.

All in all, another interesting looking, well made shoe from Boden!
