Review: My Soludos

To start, I will say that I have *loved* these shoes all Spring and Summer long. They are so easy to slip on and I found myself wearing them almost every day to run errands, do laundry, visit family, walk to the store, etc. The embroidered detail adds a little pep to my step and smile to my face whenever I looked down. The shoe itself is average for comfortability. The material molds to your foot with wear.
The downside: the stitching started to come undone on one of my pairs pretty quickly after purchasing. Since I wore them almost every day, I figured that was par for the course, and since I only paid $25 at Nordstrom Rack I really wasn't too concerned. Both pairs have a hole growing on the top of the shoe right above where my big toe sits.

Overall, I have been slightly disappointed because I really love the embroidered detailing and I was hoping to have these shoes last more than one season. I prefer to buy quality goods that will last the test of time and if I'm buying a one season wonder I prefer to not spend $70 (which was the cost of the other pair purchased at Nordstrom). The comfortability is enough to make me give another pair a try next spring but I'll definitely be buying from The Rack at the lower price point.

Edited 7/5/18: This year I have bought two pairs with a new idea of how to make them last longer. I cut duct tape into the shape of the toe of the shoe and placed it along the inside. Hopefully this gives the canvas a little extra layer for protection. I'm also trying to not wear the cutest ones everyday and want to buy a pair for everyday wear. I'll still put the duct tape on the inside but won't be too concerned if I wear through them in one summer season.
