It won’t surprise you that the best way to describe these shoes is earthy. They’re casual, versatile, and down to earth. Style and comfort really go head to head with Earth shoes. The brand carries tons of women’s sneakers, sandals, casual shoes, flats, wedges, heels, and boots. We can’t possibly go through everything in this Earth shoes review, so we’ll showcase some fan favorites. 

Copenhagen Shanti W

The Kalso Shoe was invented in the 1970s by Danish yoga instructor and shoe designer Anna Kalsø. These clogs are designed in the original Earth Kalso shoe style with negative heels, meaning the sole slants downward. They’re the essence of laid back confidence, easy slip on and off. The Earth shoes 1970s vibe is very much alive with these clogs. 

The Copenhagen Shanti W is designed with a generous toe box, so your toes can wiggle around and get comfortable. They have a grounded heel and rubber flex outsole, perfect for walking around all day long. These Earth Kalso shoes are crafted with a wood bottom with injected EVA for flexibility. 

The Copenhagen Shanti W comes in black leather, natural/beige leather, and wool in black, brown, and merlot. These iconic Earth shoes are currently discounted at $126, originally priced at $180

Scenic Quartz Sneakers

This Earth shoes review deems the Scenic Quartz sneakers seriously classy: these sneakers are created using a woven nylon textile and a premium nubuck leather upper. Hundreds of perforations in the shoes make them easily breathable, with a removable Powerpath® footbed to energize your steps. The Scenic Quartz sneakers have reinforced arch support for all-day comfiness, whether you’re hiking, doing errands, or just playing the effortlessly casual look. 

They’re approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association, so you know they’re the real deal. The Scenic Quartz sneakers come in indigo, black, taupe, burgundy, and dark grey. These sneaks are regularly priced at $95, currently on sale for $70.

Alder Amal Sandals 

The Alder Amal is the classic sport sandal plus sleekness and modernity. The leather and metallic shine upper makes them more chic than the average day sandal. They’ve got four adjustable straps, so you can completely customize their fit. When I say they’re built for comfort, I mean it: the Alder Amal sandals feature a Powerpath® footbed, reinforced arch support, and a memory foam footbed from heel to toe. 

The Blush version is my personal favorite and would definitely compliment tanned skin in the summer. Alternatively, you can go with all black leather or sand white with metallic grey straps. These Earth shoes are priced at $110

Kara Faraday Flats

This Earth shoes review deems the Kara Faraday flats as the most functional of the bunch—I’m liking the Oxford meets flat style with the subtle heel. The side zipper on these black Earth shoes is a stylish touch, plus it makes for an easy slip on when you’re on the go. The flats have a premium leather upper, making them both elegant and casual. 

The Kara Faradays sport a Powerpath® removable footbed and reinforced arch support for all-day comfort. They’re approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association as well. I can definitely imagine a day’s worth of shopping or walking around the office in these. The Kara Faraday flats are available in black, admiral blue, and bark for $125.

Kendra Kane Wedges

Who else loves a good wedge sandal in the summer? I’m loving the details on the taupe Kendra Kane wedges, featuring a metallic silver-brown back and subtle snakeskin. The brown leather ankle snap accented with a gold ring strap offers a cross between elegant and casual. I’m imagining these going well famously with a coloured dress or skirt. 

The Kendra Kane wedges continue the theme of comfort with a Powerpath® footbed foam footbed for support from heel to toe. Their slip-resistant outsole means you won’t be sliding around in these. The Kendra Kanes also come in black, nude floral and sand white for $65, so a pretty decent price.

Peak Peru Heels

This luxe mini-bootie is inspired by western and Peruvian styles. The Peak Peru heels comes in high quality leather or suede with stretch panels for easy on and off. I’m picturing wearing them looking sweet at a country music festival, with a sundress, or some skinny jeans.

Not surprisingly, these Earth shoes boots come with a Powerpath® removable footbed and reinforced arch support. The Peak Perus also come in black, sunburn, dark beige, and brown for $150.

Earth Shoes Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Earth Shoes Review 8

Nearly every pair of Earth shoes comes with near perfect reviews on the website. One customer mentioned that the shoes were a little too snug for their usual size, but soon fit perfectly. Customers agree that Earth shoes are super comfy, and many wear them all day.

In this Earth shoes review, we dive deeper into the internet for honest customer feedback. On Zappos, the majority of 72 reviews rated Kalso Earth shoes at 4 or 5 stars, with high scores for comfort and style. The brand has the same rating on Sitejabber. Yogi Footwear approves Earth Shoes negative heel for their improvement of posture (I personally could benefit from this).

Are Earth Shoes Worth It? 

Earth Shoes Review 9

The answer to this question definitely depends on what you value in a shoe. Many customers attest to their comfort and quality, so if these are a priority for you, the shoes are definitely a good bet. The brand is committed to helping the environment and welfare of people in developing countries, so you can feel good about buying slightly pricier than average Earth shoes

Earth shoes have original retro-inspired designs, so you’ll definitely get compliments on your style. Worst case scenario, you can always return the shoes. More on Earth’s return policy can be found later on in this Earth shoes review.

Earth Shoes Promotions & Discounts

Tieks Ballet Flats Review

About Tieks  

As seen on Oprah’s The “O” List, Tieks by Gavrieli, this brand has redefined the standard ballet flat. The following Tieks ballet flats review will provide an insider look into the company and its versatile ballet flats to help you make the right purchase decision. 

Overview of Tieks 

Tieks Ballet Flats Review 12

While most ballet flats are flimsy and provide little or no support, the Tieks ballet flat is sleek, sturdy, and comfortable. They are designed for women, especially ladies on the go. A pair of Tieks can withstand the daily grind, thanks to their special split-sole that flexes as you walk. They can go from day to night by easily folding up and thrown inside a purse or tote bag. 

With a focus on adjustability, endurance, comfort and fashion, the Tieks ballet flat is meant to be worn all day. Made from quality Italian leathers and with a variety of prints, patterns and designs, there is a pair to suit every outfit and personality. Each pair of Tieks ballet flats take three days and 150 steps to produce—I was surprised to learn this when writing this Tieks ballet flats review—who knew ballet flats could be so complex?

Tieks empowers women entrepreneurs through the non-profit organization Kiva. To date, The Gavrieli Foundation has contributed over 10 million dollars to over 55,000 female entrepreneurs around the world. For this Tieks ballet flats review, let’s dive in to the benefits and downsides to the brand:


  • Made from 100% premium Italian leather 
  • Soft and stretchable to any foot
  • Comfortable leather insole 
  • Tieks has a vegan collection for those who don’t want to wear leather, made from natural dyes and European textiles 
  • Most flats have no support at the back of the heel, which causes blisters; Tieks flats have a cushion to offer more support
  • Foldable design for on the go women, also features rubber for grip
  • Free U.S. shipping and returns
  • Plenty of colours, patterns, materials and designs to choose from 
  • Collection for girls offered called Little Miss Tieks 


  • The vegan option costs the same as the leather option, as the leather option is more comfortable and a luxury product  
  • Price is higher than average compared to the average ballet flat ($175)
  • The child version starts at $135 which seems expensive considering kids grow out of shoes quickly
  • Not everyone will want that bright blue rubber on the back of their shoe as it could clash with outfits
  • International customers have a more costly experience purchasing including extras for customs and duties; Tieks won’t cover international shipping charges for a return or exchange
Tieks Ballet Flats Review 13

As you can see in the photo above, it should be noted in this Tieks ballet flats review that the shoes are versatile and can be worn in many situations, due to their comfort and durability.

Why are Tieks So Expensive?

While reading this Tieks ballet flats review, you’re likely wondering why something as simple as flats can be so expensive. Tieks prides itself on making premium flats. It takes three days and 150 steps to create one pair, eliminating the “fast fashion” effect that other retailers use, sacrificing materials and comfort for cost.

Tiek’s leather collection uses 100% premium Italian leather, handmade in Italy. The leather is tossed for hours to make sure it is the softest material without having to be broken-in. Beyond materials, here’s what makes the flats extra comfy.

  1. Cushioned Back: one of the biggest complaints about flats for women are blisters from the back of the shoe popping up. Tieks uses a cushion method, rather than an elastic so they aren’t too tight.
  2. Flexibility: the shoe has a split sole for moveability and provides extra support for the ground. Most flats are right up against the ground and can cause back pain. Tieks has made sure there is space between your shoe and the floor for extra comfort. 
  3. Softness: Tieks takes extra care when stitching the edges of their flats to keep them feeling smooth against a bare foot, so the shoe won’t dig or scratch. The insole is also hand stitched and made from soft leather.

Tieks Ballet Flats Review 

Tieks ballet flats come in four different collections, boasting over 60 styles. The four collections include: Prints, Patents, Classics, and Vegan options for every personality, occasion and closet. While each flat may have a different print or exterior, every option features:

  • Tieks cushioned back for comfort
  • Tieks signature non-skid rubber blue soles for grip and foldability 
  • Over 60 styles to suit every personality while maintaining the simple ballet flat shape
  • Foldability to easily store in a bag or tote for quick outfit refreshes, or to give high heels a rest 

Little Miss Tieks, a collection of ballet flats for young girls costs $135 per pair, and the women’s collection ranges from $175 – $345. 

Tieks Prints 

Tieks ballet flats review

Tieks features an impressive variety of 26 different types of printed flats. From funky leopard, to sparkly wild copper, to classic heritage plaid to copperhead snake, the print options are practically endless. 

Tieks ballet flats review

The printed flats collection starts at $175 and tops out at $345 for a limited edition Arabian Night Tieks flat. The Arabian Night flat (pictured above) is completely customizable so no two pairs are ever alike.

While familiarizing myself with the collection for this Tieks ballet flats review, I definitely leaned more toward the Arabian Night flat. I like the gloss finish of the patent leather, which is more subtle compared to the prints and the more expensive hand-stitched options like the one pictured below.

Tieks ballet flats review

Other more expensive options in the printed collection include White Rose (pictured above) and Rose Garden. These flats have hand-stitched flower petals and cost $295, which is a tad pricey, but could be nice for a special occasion or to wear under a bridesmaid dress, or wedding dress after a night of dancing. 

All Tieks ballet flats in the print category are made with 100% Italian leather and feature the Tieks cushioned back and signature non-skid rubber blue soles.

Tieks Patent 

Tieks ballet flats review

The Tieks ballet flat also comes in a patent collection and features 16 different types of patent leather options in every hue of the rainbow. From lemon patent (pictured above) to obsidian black, there is a shiny shoe for every occasion.

Every pair of Tieks flats in the patent collection are $195, and made with 100% Italian leather. Each pair also features the Tieks cushioned back, and signature non-skid rubber blue soles.

Tieks Classics

Tieks ballet flats review

The Tieks classic collection features 23 solid colours of Tieks flats in premium leather, and one option in suede. The classic collection starts at $175 and has the most options in this fairly reasonable price range. The classic collection features colours that range from neutrals like gold, beige and grey, to pops of pink, tangerine and clover green. 

These Tieks ballet flats match with more outfits and seem to be more versatile than some of the funkier, and pricier options. The Tieks ballet flats classic collection are a good entry point to the Tieks brand if you’re looking to splurge on a pair of flats. By choosing a simple colour like camel or matte black (pictured above) the opportunity to wear them daily, or to match any outfit is more reasonable and may give more bang for buck. 

Tieks ballet flats review

The Tieks ballet flat in suede comes in one colour, Rouge (pictured above) and is double-dyed to achieve a rich colour and has an in-house suede protectant to protect colour transfer. The suede option features the cushioned back and beige rubber soles. The Tieks ballet flat in Rouge costs $195. 

Tieks Vegan

Tieks ballet flats review

For the animal lover, the Tieks flat vegan collection has five options in luxurious European textiles and synthetic fabrics. The dyes used for the vegan collection are paraben free and natural. The five options range from simple neutrals to splashy styles. 

The Tieks vegan collection options include: Silver Lake, a cool grey; Brentwood, a neutral beige; Greystone, a dark grey; Sunset Stripe, a burst of colour and Echo Park, a funky polka dot. (pictured above). All non-leather options feature the cushioned back and beige rubber soles, priced at $175. 

Full disclosure in this Tieks ballet flats review: while I personally would not purchase vegan shoes, they are definitely a valuable option to look into if you are interested in living a vegan lifestyle (or if you already do).

Little Miss Tieks 

Tieks ballet flats review

I was pleasantly surprised to discover while researching for this Tieks ballet flats review, that the brand offers an adorable line for children. Little Miss Tieks is the kid’s version of the Tieks ballet flat. Each pair is crafted in Arzignano, Italy using premium Italian leather. Each pair also includes a high gloss coating and feature the signature cushioned back and non-skid rubber blue soles.

There are three options in the Little Miss Tieks collection: Mini Matte Black, Mini Razzbleberry, and Mini Cotton Candy (pictured above), each pair priced at $135. 

Are Tieks Worth the Money?

If you love the look of a classic ballet flat, but hate the pain or discomfort most of provide, a pair of Tieks is worth the investment. The classic collection starts at $175 and features colours that match all wardrobes, so you can wear them over and over, without feeling guilty. 

The ease of folding a pair and popping them in your purse will help free up bag space during a long commute, or in winter you can slide them on when you take off your boots. If as you read this Tieks ballet flats review, you prioritize shoes that are comfortable and long lasting, these ballet flats are likely worth the investment.

If leather isn’t an issue, I’d try a classic pair in leather, unbeatable in quality compared to other brands that use synthetic materials. If you’re into vegan flats, Tieks may not be the most cost-effective option as you miss out on the soft leather. 

Tieks Sizing 

Tieks Ballet Flats Review 14

Tieks come in size 5-13 and are true to size. It should be noted in this Tieks ballet flats review that the brand recommends going a size up if you have wide feet, as they don’t offer this option. The soft, moldable leather should be ok to stretch and accommodate a wide foot. 

Tieks Promotions & Discounts 

I searched online for a Tieks promo code and a Tieks discount code, but sadly none could be found. While there are currently no promotions, check their site for deals regularly.

About Oliver Cabell Shoes

Oliver Cabell makes quality shoes crafted using the most ethical factories and materials at affordable prices. Made for men and women, Oliver Cabell blends art, craft and technology to deliver premium footwear constructed with passion. This Oliver Cabell shoes review will examine key elements of the brand and its products to assist you in making an informed purchase decision. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 15

Overview of Oliver Cabell Sneakers

We don’t want to call Scott Gabrielson an underdog but he was an unusual fit to become an entrepreneur in the fashion industry. At the time that Scott started Oliver Cabell in 2016, he had just moved to England. In his life before Cabell, he worked for a non-profit. The reason why he was one of the most unlikely suspects is that Scott had no experience in fashion, retail or start-ups.

He’s a real example of how an outsiders eye can be of benefit because he trusted his skill for assessing balanced design and quality products as he launched the premium footwear company that would challenge the way people see things. Reflectively, Scott’s ability to look at things from a different angle, a less accustomed angle, is the very skill that allows him to make direct-to-consumer footwear that challenges the status quo. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 16
Founder of Oliver Cabell

The direct-to-consumer approach is an important aspect of Oliver Cabell. It’s the foundation that allows the company to make their shoes with the same top quality material as leading brands but because the overhead is lower, the customer puts money back in their pocket. Oliver Cabell also succeeds as a popular brand because they combine old school techniques with innovations in technology. All this, without the markups. The mission of the company is to create “perfect, timeless footwear.” 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 17


  • Quality shoes crafted of materials from Spain, Italy, Germany and England
  • Direct-to-consumer footwear cuts costs
  • Combining old techniques with innovation
  • Variety of colours and styles in boots and sneakers
  • Kits and tools available to care for footwear


  • Some countries may experience duties
  • There have been reports of slow shipping

Oliver Cabell Mens Shoes Review 

Let me guess, you like a good sneaker but you don’t just want to settle for an average pair. If you’re looking to stand apart from the crowd with a sneaker that’s just a little bit classier, a tiny bit more put together and slightly more polished, you’ll catch your stride with Oliver Cabell Mens shoes. Sneakers are available in a variety of colours including white, off white, jet black, navy, nude and well, you don’t want me to rhyme it off—go and check it out for yourself! From $95-$228, or off-the-beaten-path boots from $218-$288, you can find the shoe that vibes with your look and gives that extra special something to your Spring outfit.

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 19

In our Oliver Cabell shoe review, we will examine some best sellers including the Low 1 Sneaker, the Gat Sneaker, the SB1 Boot and the Wilson Boot. Don’t let your search stop there!

Low 1 Sneaker – White

If you thought it was an oxymoron to stand out when you’re plain, you haven’t come across the Oliver Cabell Low 1 White for $188. Hand stitched in the Marche region of Italy, you’ll treat yourself to luxurious side of basics with buttery Italian calfskin leather and the Margom outsoles of these iconic low-top silhouette hand crafted Oliver Cabell white sneakers. Yes, that’s a delightful mouthful! The footbed is Italian calfskin with molded in-soles and even the laces are made of Italian cotton. You’ll toss all the stranded keds lying around your front hallway. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 20

Gat Sneaker – White

Looking to upturn the standard for sneakers? Try the Oliver Cabell Gat for $193; it’s the athletic trainer destined to stop a cocktail party in its tracks. The retro German inspired shoe is made with luxury materials and a detailed process. You’ll know it too because it comes in a branded box with a cotton dust bag, so that you can walk through the slush in your rubbers and change into your pristine sneakers at the door. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 21

According to our Oliver Cabell review, the leather and Suede is sourced from Veneto, Italy and Spain. You still want to get things done while looking good, which is made possible by the durable Italian 70 Shore A rubber sole. In this shoe the details count and elements like the vegetable tanned leather lining or Italian waxed cotton laces make the difference. 

SB 1 Boot – Black Roughout

This top seller for men is where an old classic meets new and hip for $228. The classic lace up service boot is combined with an ankle boot pattern that is sure to find its station at the door entrance. You can mix and match these boots to chinos, jeans, or suit pants, dressing your look up and down as you see fit. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 22

The boots are made to withstand everyday life, which is why they are constructed with a resole-able Blake Stitchdown and are constructed with a custom water-resistant anti-slip studded rubber outsole from England. They’re versatile and comfortable lined with vegetable tanned leather from Venice, Italy, a foot forming midsole and a molded insole that is removable so that you can replace it with orthotics, should you choose.The boots have the little details which make them stand out, too, like premium Italian leather laces and vintage brass eyelets sourced from Spain. 

Wilson Boot – Waxed Rustic

The Wilson Boot – Waxed Rustic is a classic boot that never goes out of style. For $238, the boot is a reinterpretation of the SB 1 pattern. The innovation and elegance of the Wilson Boot is the product of a partnership with the famed leather tannery Charles Stead and what results is a waxed full-grain, completely water-proof upper that stands the test of time. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 23

The construction of your boot counts a great deal. The interior affects not only the comfort of your foot but the way you sweat, breathe and move. The exterior of the boot has to stand up to the elements and your sense of adventure and ambition. The Wilson Boot is a fierce contender for meeting these criteria with a combination of beautiful leathers and metals sourced from Spain, Italy, Germany and England. Our Oliver Cabell shoes review brought home the message that the company searches around to source the best materials to create quality footwear. It’s a good feeling to know that your boot was hand stitched in Albacete, Spain. 

Oliver Cabell Womens Shoes Review 

What if your sneaker could dress you up instead of dressing you down? In our Oliver Cabell shoes review we found that there is something special about the women’s sneakers. In white, black, nude and alloy they balance feminine and sporty, elegant and down-to-earth. What more could you ask for! Sneakers range from $185 – $198 and while we’ll be featuring the two best sellers -the Low 1 Sneaker – Nude and the Rennes Sneaker – Nude – you should check out the others too!

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 24

Low 1 Sneaker – Nude 

Your first ballet slippers were probably nude and maybe some of your baby doll’s dresses too. When you see these sneakers for $188, you’ll wonder why you left the colour behind! We studied the Low 1 in our Oliver Cabell sneakers review and found that it is handcrafted in the Marche region of Italy—maybe that’s why there’s something so special about them. The low-top silhouette is coupled with buttery Italian calfskin leather. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 25

Don’t be duped by the girly appearance though! These shoes are meant to work with a durable lightweight rubber Margom Italian outsole. You’ll be comfy enough to cover ground in the Italian calf-skin footbed with a removable molded in-sole and the Italian calfskin lining. Even the laces are Italian! 

Rennes Sneaker – Nude 

Sporty but chic—that’s the Rennes Nude for $188. It feels good to make contradictions but who says you need to do it out loud when you can make them with your footwear. The Renee is an athletic retro-runner silhouette reworked with luxury materials, kind of like the woman who can do it all. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 26

The luxury is apparent in the construction of the shoes made of an Italian calf-skin footbed and a Spanish cowhide leather, with Italian waxed cotton laces. The shoes are hand stitched in Albacete, Spain but don’t let luxury fool you. With an Italian Dami rubber sole, these shoes can kick some serious butt! 

Oliver Cabell Shoe Care Review

When it comes to any shoe, but especially beautiful shoes, shoe care counts. In our Oliver Cabell shoes review, we learned about all of the elements and tools that go into taking excellent care of your shoes. To help with this process Oliver Cabell has three care kits: the refresh kit fo $38, the boot kit for $33 and the essential kit for $24.  

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 27

Those aren’t the only considerations you’ll have to take when it comes to keeping your shoes in great condition. You may also want to purchase: 

  • Oliver Cabell Wooden Shoe Trees $18
  • White Cotton Laces $10
  • Premium Shoe Cleaner $18
  • Shoe Whitener $15
  • Leather Conditioner $14
  • Shoe Cleaning Brush $14

Refresh Kit

The Refresh Kit will have your shoes in tip-top condition for $38. The kit includes:

  • 6.75 oz Sneaker Cleaner
  • Shoe Cleaning Brush
  • 1.69 oz Shoe Whitener
  • White Cotton Laces
Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 28

When you’re putting the kit to use, begin by cleaning the shoe with the premium shoe cleaner and brush. The best way to release the shoe whitener is to press gently against the shoe. Work it in by making circular motions against the surface of the shoe. Let your footwear air dry and repeat as needed. 

Boot Kit

The Boot Kit is the fix for cleaning your boots and shoes for $33. Our Oliver Cabell shoes review emphasized the contents of the Boot Kit:

  • 6.75 oz Sneaker Cleaner
  • Shoe Cleaning Brush
  • 45 ml Leather Conditioner
Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 29

To clean your shoes up with the kit, clean the shoe using the Premium Shoe Cleaner and Brush. Next Air dry your shoes. Once they’re dry, apply conditioner with a soft cloth or sponge. Remember—apply it evenly. Let the leather absorb the leather conditioner for five minutes. Voila! Good as new.

Oliver Cabell Shoes Review: What Do Customers Think? 

We took customer reviews into careful consideration when collecting insights for our Oliver Cabell shoes review. The truth is, after the hype we felt with the beautiful look and quality of the footwear, we were discouraged by some customer reviews. Customers were agitated by duty fees and poor customer service. Shipping was prolonged and an overall disheartening e-commerce experience. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 31

We didn’t let our hopes down though and when we continued investigating, some of our suspicions were confirmed. You can’t source materials from Spain, Italy, Germany and England to make eye-catching footwear and fall flat completely. As it turned out, customers loved the quality of the shoes, the design, look and fit. One customer said it was the best footwear they had ever seen for the price. There were even some contradictions to the review of customer service with the happier customers finding the team accommodating and quick. If you can manage to stay even through some process glitches, you’ll be getting your hands on a truly beautiful pair of shoes. Our Oliver Cabell shoes review concludes—go for it!

Mahabis Slippers Review

About Mahabis 

Mahabis Slippers Review 38

Mahabis designs functional and stylish slippers for men, women, and their children. The brand’s motto is “time well spent leads to a life well-lived,” having produced perhaps the most beloved and comfortable shoe on the market. Mahabis developed a functional, attractive slipper that allows the wearer to engage optimally in their activities and relationships. This Mahabis slippers review will provide an in-depth look at the brand and its products to guide your purchase decision. 

Overview of Mahabis 

An interesting story lies in the founding of Mahabis. In 2014, criminal barrister Ankur Shah observed a pattern in the lives of those around him: people were separating the completion of their to-do list and relaxation. Shah broke from his law career intent on breaking these barriers, to create footwear that blurred the two spaces. 

Mahabis’ slippers became a symbol of change, shifting the way people spend and allocate their time. Knowing that our shoes take us through many of our life moments and pursuits, the Mahabis mission was born: to design footwear “for maximal comfort” that make each moment meaningful.

Mahabis Slippers Review 39

Our Mahabis slippers review found that the team headquartered in London has developed features for their product that you won’t see elsewhere. Take, for example, the neoprene heel cradle: this thoughtful detail holds your foot in place, especially when you are active or walking upstairs. All Mahabis slippers also feature a contoured foam in-sock providing arch support. The quality Corriedale and Romney wools contained in the slippers are sourced from Australia and New Zealand and sent for manufacturing in Europe and China.

Mahabis lives in the moment intentionally, in part through focused efforts on manufacturing, complying with ethical trade standards. Our Mahabis slippers review taught us that Mahabis is a fairtrade business, meaning that employees are treated well, paid a fair wage, and work in safe conditions. Mahibas also maintains the calibre of its product by engaging with independent researchers to test their footwear. This process ensures that the slippers meet the criteria for highest durability, abrasion and sizing standards. 

To sum up this Mahabis slippers review, we’ll take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of the brand


  • Four adult styles of adult slippers and an option for children 
  • Ability to choose the upper colour and sole in some models
  • Durable TPU performance-grade sole
  • Designed with layers for comfort
  • 100% high quality wool lining
  • Lightweight versions available
  • Slippers feature breathability and air flow
  • Ergonomic neoprene heel


  • Customers report heel slippage, slippers pull socks down, feet overheat in the wool lining, and pilling

Mahabis offers five unique slipper designs, each tailored to an individual’s lifestyle and needs:

Mahabis Classic Slippers Review 

According to our Mahabis slipper review, the Classic Slipper is warm, versatile and comfortable for $141. You can choose the colours for the upper and sole of your Mahabis Classic. Choices for the upper include light grey, dark grey, and black. Colours available for the sole include black, white, yellow, grey, green, blue and purple. I find these customizable options particularly interesting as they’re an upgrade of the typical non-colour slipper.

The Mahabis Classic Slippers are available for men and women. They’re designed inside and out with all-day comfort in mind, featuring a 100% wool lining, soft felt upper, and adaptable foam footbed. The Classic Slippers have a durable hybrid sole, meaning you don’t have to worry about them wearing down like most slippers on the market. 

Mahabis Outdoor Slippers Review 

Our Mahabis slippers review revealed that the outdoor variation is available in slate, navy, grey and black for $141. Offered in men’s and women’s sizes, the shoes have the pragmatism of an outdoor shoe with the luxury of an indoor slipper. You can wear Mahabis Outdoor Slippers anywhere without pause—how is this possible, when most slippers are confined to your house? 

The secret to these outdoor slippers is a unique TPU performance-grade fixed sole with a multi-surface grip. They feature a comfy lining made of 100% wool and a technically woven upper that is lightweight and soft. The shoe has a technically woven upper and is lightweight and soft. The signature look is debuting six new colours, so stay tuned.

Mahabis Flow Slippers Review

Mahabis Flow Slippers are a flexible, lightweight, and comfortable option for $141. These slippers are designed for relaxation and downtime. The Scandinavian design of the Flow Slippers is sleek. Our Mahabis slippers review showed us that the slippers are available for men and women in black, grey, green, sand, pink, navy and black and navy and ivory. 

The shoes are breathable with a perforated lining for continuous airflow and have the comfort of Mahabis but are lightweight with a woven upper. The breathability of this slipper version makes them perfect for those who are on the go and want to avoid hot feet. The flexible design makes it easy to move, and the ergonomic neoprene heel molds to your foot. Additionally, the Flow Slippers have a flexible foam footbed that contours to your foot. The durable hybrid sole makes it seamless to move from inside to outside. 

Mahabis Luxe Slippers Review 

Mahabis Luxe Slippers put a luxurious spin on downtime with a beautifully minimalist design. They’re offered for men and women in black or beige, both having a matching coloured sole. The slippers offer premium comfort with a nubuck leather upper and 100% wool lining for $231. The Luxe version is certainly not your typical slipper—their appearance is closer to a slip-on, making them suitable for less casual outfits. 

We learned from our Mahabis slippers review that the Mahabis Luxe Slippers are incredibly durable: they’re constructed with a multi-surface sole so that wearers can stay on-the-go all day in joyful comfort. The Luxe Slippers are the first step to making downtime sacred! 

Mahabis Kids Slippers Review 

Mahabis Kids Slippers are the real deal, simply made mini. From our Mahabis slippers review, we learned that the slippers come in four upper shades, light grey, dark grey, navy and aqua. Children may choose from TPU sole colours, including ivory, grey, black, yellow, green, blue and red for $42. Children are always happy with the freedom of choice, so they’ll love choosing their own colours to make their slippers unique.

The Kids Slippers are designed to nourish a child’s imagination with freedom of play in the comfort of the home. These slippers have unbeatable comfort and come in a wool-lined classic or hyper-lightweight summer version. With the collapsible heel your child can slip on and go, so that their creative play can be nurtured, and not impeded, by their footwear. 

Customer Reviews

Mahabis Slippers Review 45

In our Mahabis slippers review, we found that the majority of customers promoted Mahabis with good or excellent reviews. They frequently commented that putting on their slippers was a favourite part of their day. Customers liked the fixed soles and were positive about the ankle support and the airflow. Reviews included feedback that the slippers are stylish and comfortable “like walking on clouds.” 

Customers stated that the price was right for the quality of the slippers. They were also satisfied with excellent customer service and effective shipping and delivery. Customers returned to buy Mahabis products and even outfitted their whole family in pairs!

There were some negative reviews on the slippers. A customer reported that the fabric pilled easily, affecting the aesthetic of the shoe. When the shoes were worn without socks, feet tended to overheat and sweat. When wearing a sock, it had to be thin, or else it was tight. The ankle support managed to pull socks down, according to reviewers. Customer service was not responsive to customers who complained about the quality of the shoe.  

Are Mahabis Slippers Worth Buying?

Mahabis Slippers Review 46

When considering if Mahabis is worth purchasing from, let’s do a recap on the slippers: they’re versatile and comfortable, with technical features such as the adaptable footbed and neoprene cradle. There are different models to choose from to accommodate colour preferences and lifestyles of the customer. Mahabis slippers contain premium wool, used to create an effective layered design for added comfort. The durable sole allows adults and children to live their lives without feeling held back and to put more emphasis on integrating down-time. 

For the most part, the reviews were positive, endorsing the quality and comfort of the shoes. On the other hand, the wool lining and neoprene heel, which are supposed to be beneficial features, received negative complaints from customers. Despite the thoughtful manufacturing process and design of Mahabis slippers, the mixed and polarized feelings of customers must be taken into consideration when purchasing the product.

Allbirds Shoes Review

About Allbirds 

Allbirds is a shoe retailer that is creating men’s and women’s footwear using natural and recycled materials. Allbirds’ aim is to use eco-friendly manufacturing practices to reduce their carbon footprint and create less pollution. Specializing in men’s and women’s shoes, Allbirds also carries socks and accessories made from sustainable, comfortable materials.

This Allbirds shoes review will offer an overview of the brand and the products it sells to help potential buyers make an informed decision. 

Overview of Allbirds 

In 2016, this San Francisco based brand was created by Tim Brown, a former professional soccer player. Brown, a New Zealand native, wondered why the wool from the merino sheep was not being used in the footwear industry. He brought Joey Zwillinger, an engineer, onto his team and from there, Allbirds was created.

Allbirds’ mission is simple: create sleek, stylish sneakers that look great on your feet and don’t harm the environment. It’s time to swap out your carbon footprint for a regular one!

Allbirds Shoes Review

Wool is the key material in Allbirds’ footwear. Allbirds wool shoes are made using the finest merino wool from New Zealand, crafting it in a textile mill in Milan, Italy, and manufactured in South Korea. Their shoelaces are made from recycled plastic and all of their packaging is made from 90% recycled cardboard. Sounds too good to be true, right?

After skimming their site for this Allbirds shoes review, we’ve condensed the highlights for you below. 


  • Sustainably produced
  • Eco-friendly 
  • Large variety
  • Products for men, women and kids
  • Reasonably priced 
  • 30 day return policy
  • Aesthetically pleasing site


  • Accessories cannot be returned or exchanged
  • Certain shoes do not come in half sizes

To learn more about Allbirds, their products and what verified buyers have to say, keep reading this Allbirds shoes review.

Allbirds Flats Review 

Women’s Tree Breezers

The Women’s Tree Breezers are their own version of Allbirds flats. They have just the right combination of comfort and style to be dressed up or down. Since the shoes come in 16 color options, they’ll complete any casual or smart casual look and pair with whatever shades you like to wear. The Tree Breezers are available from sizes 5-11 and retail for $95.

The Tree Breezer is made from eucalyptus tree fibers, a naturally-derived, eco-friendly material. This unique fiber does not only benefit the environment, but you as well. Here’s how:

  • The eucalyptus pulp makes this shoe both silky smooth and highly breathable
  • The shoe’s ribbed knitting structure allows it to conform to your foot’s shape
  • Lined with merino wool, the Tree Breezer is both comfortable and odor resistant
  • The sole is made of SweetFoam™, derived from Brazilian sugarcane, which gives it a bouncy comfort

Allbirds Loungers Review 

Allbirds Wool Loungers

The Allbirds Wool Loungers are precisely where comfortable footwear meets stylish streetwear. These loungers come in eight colors and are available for women and men. Their sleek, simple design makes these Wool Loungers versatile, suitable for both daywear and nightwear.

These Wool Loungers sell for $95 and are made from the finest merino wool, straight from New Zealand. The nature of this wool makes the shoes odor resistant, itch-free and temperature regulating, meaning your feet will stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Don’t be fooled if you think this wool is itchy—merino wool is as high quality as wool gets, and the itchiness that is sometimes caused by wool is associated with poor quality fabric.

Allbirds Wool Loungers are only available in whole sizes, unfortunately. Allbirds recommends sizing up. You’ll find a sizing chart and more info on suggested sizes at the end of this Allbirds shoes review.

Allbirds Tree Loungers

The Tree Loungers are named after the eucalyptus tree fibers used to make them. Light and breathable, these Tree Loungers will keep your feet cool on even the warmest summer day. A blend of castor bean oil, merino wool, and low-density foam makes the Allbirds Tree Loungers comfy, super smooth, and cushioning on your feet. The merino wool specifically makes them odor resistant, so the “summer smelly feets” will be someone else’s problem.

The Allbirds Tree Loungers sell for $95 and come in seven different colors, available for both men and women. These loungers are only available in whole sizes, and Allbirds recommends sizing up. You can find a size chart towards the end of this Allbirds shoes review.

Allbirds Wool Runners Review 

Allbirds Wool Runners are naturally soft, made from the finest merino wool. Available for both men and women, these runners are guaranteed to fit your every move without sacrificing style. Available in 17 different colors, ranging from black to a beautiful lavender and pastel blue, the Allbirds Wool Runners are perfect for casual streetwear or even those more active days. The merino wool fabric makes these runners odor resistant while you exercise, and as they absorb moisture, your feet won’t feel damp.

Allbirds durability is ensured by the merino wool used. This wool allows the runners to be both soft and durable, fitted for even the roughest terrain. The laces are made from 100% recycled polyester. The soles are made of low-density foam, which is cushioning, light and provides friction control. The S-curve tread mimics your feet’s natural flexibility and evenly distributes your weight as you walk.

The Allbirds Wool Runners sell for $95 and are not available in half sizes.

Allbirds Tree Runners Review 

The Allbirds Tree Runners are available for both men and women, retailing at $95 a pair. Made from eco-friendly eucalyptus tree fibers, the Tree Runners are naturally breathable and sure to be cool and light on your feet. A flexible foam sole conforms to your foot’s every move. 

Allbirds’ insoles are made of castor bean oil, which both cuts carbon output and makes for a supremely soft shoe.

The Allbirds Tree Runners do not come in half sizes. The Allbirds Tree Runners come in 15 different colors for men. As for Allbirds Women’s Tree Runners, they come in 11 colors.

Allbirds Shoes Review: What Do Customers Think? 

All of Allbirds products have dozens, if not hundreds, of five-star reviews. Overall satisfaction among customers seems to be unanimous, that these shoes deliver on both style and comfort.

One happy customer left this review for the Men’s Wool Runners: “I’ve put thousands upon thousands of steps into my first pair. These shoes are great. I’ve struggled all my life finding a sturdy AND breathable athletic shoe and the struggle is over. I’ll be buying these again.”

For the Women’s Tree Breezers, one buyer put it simply, writing: “These shoes are so comfortable! They’re my new favorite pair of flats!”

No matter what pair of shoes you’re browsing, the reviews do not stray from total customer satisfaction. Stylish, comfortable and good for the planet? Allbirds seems to be the total package. 

Are Allbirds Worth It?

Allbirds Shoes Review

To put it simply, yes. Allbirds had me sold on their footwear as soon as I read about their eco-friendly practices while writing this Allbirds shoes review. Any company that goes the extra mile to make the planet as happy as their customers is a winner in my book.

What I love most about Allbirds is their initiative to engage in as many sustainable manufacturing practices as they possibly can. As if creating footwear from trees was not enough, Allbirds took it one step further by using both recycled plastic and recycled cardboard. Amazing, huh?

We have to talk about how affordable the Allbirds sneakers are! They retail for the same price, if not cheaper, than your favourite pair of Nikes! Allbirds went ahead and put a price on fashionable, sustainable footwear. And that price was actually affordable. My only hope is that in the future, they will release a line of Allbirds slippers! Imagine the comfort…

In short, I’m glad I wrote this Allbirds shoes review because it put this company on my radar. The products they are selling and their ethics are not something you want to miss out on.

Allbirds Sizing 

Allbirds offers the following size chart for their footwear:

Allbirds Shoes Review: Sizing

Some of the shoes Allbirds sells do not come in half sizes. For those pieces, they recommend customers size up for the perfect fit. If you have wider feet, they also recommend sizing up. 

For customers interested in their Tree Runners, Allbirds recommends sizing down if you are between sizes or have wide feet.

Allbirds’ flexible return policy ensures that even if you happen to purchase the wrong size, you are still able to return your shoe for a new pair.

How to Wash Allbirds 

Washing Allbirds shoes is a bit different than your regular sneakers. Since Allbirds’ shoes are made from wool and tree fibers, they cannot simply be thrown into the washing machine. You can exit that Google search though, because this Allbirds shoes review has got you covered on how to wash these products. Here are the simple steps to washing your Allbirds shoes:

  1. Remove the insoles and laces; these should be gently washed by hand
  2. Place your shoes in a mesh laundry bag and wash in cold water, on the gentle cycle and using a gentle detergent
  3. Let your shoes air dry

Allbirds Waterproof

To put it simply, Allbirds shoes are not completely waterproof. They will still retain moisture if they become substantially wet. However, Allbirds lines their insoles with merino wool, a fabric that is naturally moisture wicking. Meaning, the insides of your shoes won’t absorb any moisture, even on those sweaty summer days.

Allbirds Promotions & Discounts  

The only promotion spotted while writing this Allbirds shoes review was the free US shipping they offer on orders over $50. Allbirds appears not to offer any discounts. 

Allbirds coupon codes do not seem to exist. As for an Allbirds sale, their products seem to stay at regular price all year round. However, you can enter your email on their site to sign up for exclusive offers and possible future promotions.

Allbirds Black Friday

In 2019, Allbirds celebrated Black Friday by releasing their Tree Runners in three limited-edition colors. These shoes sold for the regular $95 and are still available for purchase on their site.

Who knows what Allbirds will release for Black Friday this year!

Margaux Shoes Review

About Margaux

Margaux Shoes Review 48

Margaux is a New York based shoe brand catering exclusively to women. Margaux focuses on crafting versatile and comfortable shoes that are suitable for modern day-to-day life. They place a heavy emphasis on providing women with unparalleled options when it comes to sizing. To get the full scoop on what Margaux is really all about, keep reading for our in-depth Margaux shoes review. 

We know it’s difficult to make the right decisions as a consumer. That’s why we’ve compiled this comprehensive Margaux shoes review for you—a place to quickly grasp the key elements of the brand and its products, hopefully leading to a better-informed purchase.

Overview of Margaux

When Margaux first set out to make its mark as a shoe manufacturer, they wanted to do so with the needs of modern-day life in mind. The brand’s creators aspired to produce shoes that would be stylish, versatile, and—above all else—comfortable. 

In the course of this endeavour, the makers of Margaux quickly learned that women were not comfortable in the shoes they were wearing. Sure, they “fit” in some ironically loose sense of the word. By then Margaux had reached the conclusion that women, in fact, were not wearing shoes that actually fit — not as well as they could fit, at least.

In their aim to create comfort-focused footwear, Margaux understood that sizing must be prioritized. It is for this reason that Margaux has one of the most in-depth and comprehensive selections of sizes anywhere on the internet. Recent studies have shown that 88% of women readily wear shoes that don’t fit, and Margaux is here to change that. 

Margaux Shoes Review 49

In addition to placing their manufacturing efforts on comfort, Margaux is also keen on producing quality-made shoes that look great. This is apparent the second you stumble onto their website. While writing this Margaux shoes review, I was quite impressed by the selection of models, styles, and colour patterns.

Margaux’s handcrafted collection of footwear is made using only the finest quality leathers and produced in a family-owned factory in Spain. The price certainly reflects this quality, as it’s not something most would characterize as cheap. That being said, one should always expect quality to come with a price. No Margaux shoes review would be complete without exploring both the good and the bad:


  • Elegant and stylish design
  • Extreme emphasis on comfort
  • Unparalleled sizing options
  • A wide variety of colours and styles to choose from


  • Limited storefront locations
  • Customers who shop online are unable to try on shoes before purchase 
  • Above average shoe pricing 

Margaux Flats Review

The Demi

Margaux Shoes Review 50
Margaux The Demi

The Demi reflects a timeless French-girl look, with its feminine and sensible design. The shoe is available in a variety of colours including Ballet Pink, Burgundy, Dove, and Ochre. The Demi is designed using Italian Nappa leather, with a grosgrain trim and adjustable cord bow that add to its elegance. A supportive insole and 5mm of plush foam padding offers superior comfort to this versatile shoe that can be worn for any occasion. Prices for the Demi range from $145 to $155

The Classic

Margaux Shoes Review 51
Margaux The Classic

In this Margaux shoes review, we’ll take a look at their signature pair. The Classic is a perfect combination of form and function: a graceful and refined flat that also feels great to walk in, no matter where you go. The shoe’s upper is crafted using Italian haircalf, while the Nappa leather levels out the binding and lining of the flat. Like the Demi, 5mm of plush foam padding cushions your walk.

The Classic is available in an array of colours and styles including midnight, saffron, poppy and leopard haircalf. The price of the Classic varies quite drastically depending on your style of choice. Prices start at $195, with the most expensive variant going for $245

The Pointe

Margaux Shoes Review 52
Margaux The Pointe

The Pointe is designed to create the silhouette of a pointy shoe without the general discomfort that goes along with it. Margaux’s sizing selection and made-to-measure option ensure that your flat isn’t pinching or squeezing your toes, and 5mm of plush foam padding means your feet are in similar comfort.

A Nappa upper and bow, grosgrain trim, and leather lining give the Pointe its delicately sleek look. The Pointe is available in 7 distinct styles including tweed, zebra haircalf, heather cap toe, and midnight. The Pointe ranges in price from $195 to $245 depending on the style. 

Margaux Shoes Review

The Heel

Margaux Shoes Review 53
Margaux The Heel

This versatile block heel offers you a dignified shape with Margaux’s signature fit and comfort. The Heel features an Italian suede upper with a leather lining. The 5mm of plush foam padding and 2.5-inch heel make them sturdy and comfortable to walk in. There are 7 distinct colours to choose from including burgundy, midnight, cacao, and steel. Prices for the heel start at $245 and can go up to $295 depending on the style. 

The Loafer

Margaux Shoes Review 54
Margaux The Loafer

Margaux’s take on the loafer results in a sophisticated piece that can work with almost any outfit. Its distinct almond toe, suede upper, and delicate cut provides you with a one-of-a-kind loafer look. This loafer features a grosgrain binding, leather lining, and of course, 5mm of foam plush cushion. The shoe comes in 6 distinct colours and styles including cognac, pink velvet and leopard haircalf. Prices start at $225, with the most expensive variant going for $275

Margaux Shoes Review: What Do Customers Think?

Margaux Shoes Review 55

Overall, reception for Margaux NYC shoes has been fairly positive for the most part. Many a Margaux shoes review have levelled significant praise at the elegant and timeless design of the shoes, while also being impressed by how well crafted they are. The materials used in the shoes, particularly the leather, have been touted as one of the greatest assets of the Margaux shoe line.  

Additionally, the comfort of the shoes has been met with significantly positive feedback. Many customers felt that the cushioning of the flats was just enough to provide them with support and comfort while not compromising the classic look of the shoe. 

Some customers have reported a short break-in period lasting about a day or so. Many affirm that the shoes fit perfectly after this preliminary period. Ultimately, it appears as though the shoes largely succeed in fulfilling what they’ve set out to do. The comfort factor may not be seamless right out of the gate, but they should fit perfectly within no time.  

Margaux Sizing

As mentioned before, if there’s one thing you should have no trouble finding when it comes to Margaux, it’s a size perfectly catered to you.

To help you along in your quest for great-fitting shoes, Margaux has created a useful little quiz for you to take. Not only does the quiz encompass sizing, but it also provides you with a style recommendation based on the intended use of your new pair of shoes.

If you really want to ensure your shoes are a perfect fit, you can order Margaux’s sizing kit for $15. This sizing kit allows you to measure the exact dimensions of your feet. Margaux is then able to craft shoes that are directly catered to your personalized measurements. The kit contains:

  • Swatches of their classic suede colours
  • A fitting tool and tape measure
  • A step-by-step guide on how to go about taking your measurements
  • The quintessential pencil 

The scope of Margaux’s unmatched sizing options include:

  • Extended size range
  • Multiple widths
  • Made-to-measure sizing

The extensive sizing options, in tandem with their handy quiz-based system and fitting kit, all come together really well in providing you an experience unlike any other in your search for great-fitting shoes.
