My shoes are actually the Black Eyes and are specially constructed for my very narrow foot and low ankle bone. Apropos did an awesome job in working with me virtually to create a shoe that works. I had a pair already but did not have them with me to help in the creation. Cathy asked me questions and sent ideas and I now have a perfect pair. I will order another soon as they are so flexible- they look dressy and are so comfy-hard to find!
My first purchase was back in the early 2000 when visiting my youngest in Boston. Loved that shoe so much I wore holes in it.
This shoe is very comfortable from the first wear. The only complaint is that as I removed from the plastic bag the strong smell of glue ? was so strong.... I put the shoes in the back porch for a couple of days to air out.
I needed a pair of comfortable yet "dressy" shoes to wear in the evenings on my 8-night river cruise of the Danube River after a long day of walking tours on medieval cobblestones and stairs in the beautiful towns we visited. My shiny Red Tuxedo apropos shoes went with everything and felt great to put on my tired feet for the lavish dinners and entertainment that followed. Before I went on the trip, I went up to visit the shop where the shoes are manufactured to get the straps adjusted to fit my odd feet. A wonderful experience -- both my trip to Europe and my trip to the apropos manufacturing facility in Lawrence, MA! I definitely plan to purchase additional pairs in the future.
I swear to myself I will not suffer through another event in heels. These would be the dress up shoes I would wear.
They are truly a beautiful shoe in the loveliest material and richest colors. And with the help of great customer service I am able to order them in wide with prior stretch for my bunions. Love them.
Customer service gets 5 stars! My first pair was slipping in the heels and they made me a new pair! Who does that? Thank you so much
Great shoes! Comfortable, attractive, and perfect for traveling as they would fit easily in your suitcase.
Stylish, comfortable and unique. Even though the website advised sizing up a half size, the fit for me was large in the heel, requiring me to buy inserts.
I am excited to wear these shoe. They feel really good on my feet. I hope they will be as comfortable when wearing all day.
Nice looking. A good tight weave in fabric. My feet are average width, I’d say, & were immediately more comfy in the looser weave shoe. These fit more snugly than looser weave, but I can still wear them.
Cute shoes! I have gotten a lot of compliments on them. They are also very comfortable right out of the box.
I had to return my first pair of shoes because I had not specified width and other issues. The Apropos team proactively reached out and re-did my order based on additional information I gave them. They fit perfectly and look really beautiful. I am trying to decide which other pairs I will buy next!
I live in the UK, so have to be patient for these to arrive. Since my incidental purchase in the market in Boston (US) 6 years ago, these have to be at least my 7th or 8th pair. Wonderful!
Shoe fits my bunion foot, but not quite my narrow heel. The straps are a good idea.
ordered the red tuxedo shoes with a high toe box, they are a perfect fit and absolutely beautiful!!!! Love this company, great customer service---a quality product made in the U.S.,
at a very fair price! Will continue to add to my collection--hint, hint as new styles are added.
Thanks Apropos, we need more companies like yours in this country.
Fit perfect. Delivered quickly
Beautiful sheen to the jacquard pattern of the fabric. The shoes are extremely comfortable. I always get compliments when wearing them.
I am never disappointed with Apropos. They are truly a scarf on my feet comfortable for all day wear. I love them. Thank you Apropos for fabulous Tuxedo Red!
I’ve worn these shoes for years and always get compliments. They’re comfortable and professional looking. Very good service too! Thank you.
These shoes are true to size and so pretty. The pattern is great to wear with a wide variety of styles such as skirts, shorts or skorts. They are very comfortable and goes great with casual or dress up styles.
I’ve loved these shoes forever, ever since I bought my first pair off your cart in Boston.
These are such beautiful shoes!
I have large bunions so I ordered a half size larger. The fit is perfect and so comfortable. They feel like slippers, but look so elegant. I couldn't be more pleased!
I purchased my skimmers #4 and 5 , Red Tuxedo and O’Honey, and like their predecessors they are comfortable and very stylish. They are my dress shoes on my world travels as they pack easily, can be worn all day and be easy on my aged feet. Love them!
Five Stars! Love my new shoes—gives me Happy Feet. All good—costs and the size and color and style and timely service delivery. Thank you.
These shoes are durable and fun to wear. I wore them to several holiday events and was very comfortable in them.
I bought another 2 pairs of your lovely shoes recently: the black and the red tuxedo. Amazing shoes, so comfy they are like I'm wearing my slippers! Yet, they are stylish and versatile. And did I mention sturdy?? I was so happy wearing my little black shoes that I couldn't make myself change in to my old boring shoes for walking my Great Pyrenees. So here are Althea and I rocking the Apropos in the Great Pacific Northwest. Keep up the great work!
Love my new shoes. This is my fourth pair and as usual I’m very happy with them.
Plan on wearing them for a special event. Thank you for such comfortable shoes.
Love these shoes! It's the only kind I wear.. I have the red tuxedo, sips of silver, black jax and another cranberry pair that looks to be no longer made.... but best of all I just ordered the black pearl and so look forward to getting them. I'm a meeting planner & on my feet running meetings & events daily and these are the only shoes I wear. So comfortable and can go 24/7 in them. Love, love them...my forever shoes. A customer since 2015 and will be a customer forever! Nice job Apropos Footwear! Sue
I've had my pair of sport skimmers for several years now. They are actually my go-to dress shoes since I can't wear heels. So beautiful and so comfortable! I'm a loyal fan of the original design too (actually on my 5th pair since these are my everyday shoes for three seasons (wish there were boots that comfortable for the snow!).
Service and delivery is always great!
My shoes were here when I got home from work, and they look great with my outfit.
Thank you so much.
