I’ve always been a great supporter of the collegiate style. Smart, simple and sexy with a deceptively ‘safe’ allure. Miz Mooz took this style in stride and gave it a blue-suede edge with this Oxford-style pump. Which was fitting because I ended up puttering about in Oxford, England in them.
The suede was soft and fine and the color was perfect, bringing both a splash of class and fun to any outfit. These shoes were surprisingly comfortable and went both a casual pair of jeans and a flirty skirt.
My only word of warning is that when purchasing a pair, you put on both and take a small stroll (in your home/store, of course) to get a full feel of the shoe. This brand stays very true to size and don’t allow much wiggle-room on either end, so make sure you get the one that fits right!
This particular shoe doesn’t offer a lot for traction as is common with this type of pump so I do recommend possibly picking up some treads to add to the sole if you plan on walking on any slicker surfaces.
The stitching and sole work are masterful and give a sense that these are shoes that will bear the wear and tear whether you’re rushing to class, strolling through the park or nervously tapping your toes before an interview.
Miz-Mooz broke out a parade of color for their 2013 spring collection, keeping up with their dedication to style and quality of product. Sandal wedges, brightly hued flats, and pumps with a nod to vintage pin-ups.
I’ve always been more of a fan of fall fashion because I felt it offered more in terms of variety (boots, tights, scarves) but this collection may be out to change my mind. I know I’ll be picking up a pair of the Eloy for myself. What will you snag for your collection?
