I purchased my first pair of Apropos shoes on a visit to Boston more than 20 years ago - you had a pushcart/pop-up store in Faneuil Hall. They were a beige and black tweedy print. I quickly followed up with pair of plain black, and a nautical navy, denim blue and white nautical print. All three have since been worn out and (sadly tossed) although I am still wearing the 3rd (or maybe 4th pair) of the black ones.
Over the years, I have expanded my Apropos collection- I currently own an even dozen of the current styles plus the previous version for the plain black and plain navy styles! I get asked "where did you get those cute shoes?" often enough that I have added your email address to my phone contacts!!
I also have at least a dozen of your retired styles. I dread thinking about tossing some of my favorite styles when they eventually wear out. (I just ordered a replacement for this style and the Black Tuxedo since I see you are nearing the end of the roll).
Every time I get an email, I check to see if you have added any new patterns that interest me - I'm partial to things that coordinate with black, navy, gray, and denim. So I usually go with neutral colors - although I do own the Red Tuxedo, Smooches, and another retired style in red when I want to make a bold statement with my shoes!
It was wonderful dealing with the customer representative
She went above and beyond for me. Thank you. The shoes look great with my outfit. Just what I wanted
So comfortable and so elegant looking! Looking forward to wearing these, especially with black pants and silver jewelry.
very cute and comfortable. I will be buying more of this brand.
apropos' fit team absolutely nailed it!
My new happy shoes are beautiful and perfect!
I certainly appreciate your effort and support in working with me.
10 Stars to you and your company in the finished product and to
your positive approach with customer service.
“Sips of Silver” will not disappoint…the neutral gray fabric will compliment many outfits!!! The fabric is fabulous and the comfort, as always, is great! Apropos are my go to shoes most days of the week!!! Looking forward to seeing what new patterns will be available!! Thank you!!
I’ve bought this same fabric before….it goes everywhere. I think this is my fourth or fifth pair. They are very comfortable for my narrow but bunioned feet and so easy to slip on and off as I come and go.
I've never been treated this well by a company. I returned them because they were just too small and not wide enough at all. Apropos followed up immediately and they sent me a larger, wide pair, They are lovely and fit well.
These shoes fit well and are very comfortable and attractive. They don't provide any arch support so may not be for everyone.
Dress them up or dress them town!
Another great pair of Apropos!
Love the looks, so very pretty. However they give me zip support (a bit like Bernie Mev's) and I can't wear them. They were so cute, gave them to my grand daughter. Definitely not for 82 year old.
Love the shoe. The woman at Apropos was very informative and helped me get the perfect fit. Rare and wonderful customer service. Thank you.
My shoes came late yestetday. I have been wearing them around the house today. They are wonderful. Fit perfectly. I will wear them often. Thank you for your excellent support and help.
I am an elementary teacher with severe knee arthritis. I have spent the past few years wearing birkenstocks and running shoes to work. I need arch support and lots of cushioning. I (according to my watch) average 11 stand hours a day when teaching! I wanted something prettier to wear with dresses and took a chance on these. I didn’t review immediately because I really wanted to see how I liked them and whether they were true to size. The answer to both is yes! Comfortable for a long work day, look cute and true to size! I love them!
Very comfortable and goes well with casual or more dressy looks. I’ve gotten many compliments.
Beautiful shoes and very well made. They slip on my heel when I walk but the elastic is very loose so if I tighten that it might help.
Just received my second pair of skimmers—silver with a leaf pattern. I love these shoes, which are both comfortable and beautiful. Although I suspect (and hope) that they will become more and more popular, right now they are unusual. Every time I check there are new patterns from which to choose. I have had to deal with customer service for both pairs: the first time because the shoes I ordered were too small, and the second because USPS claimed the package with the second pair had been deliver ed when this was not the case. I have never received better and prompter customer service. They responded immediately to my issues by email, helped to resolve the package issue, and, in the case of the size problem, made me a new pair of shoes—even offering to make a custom wide toe box. While tempted to keep ordering new designs for myself, I am about to order a pair for a friend. Almost as much fun!
My first pair of these shoes were bought when they were a street cart in Boston. Found them again a few years ago - recently bought three more pairs. So worth it.
I have fully joined the ranks of Apropos addicts! This particular pair is so very elegant, and will be a wonderful addition to my wardrobe for dressier occasions. It's really a wonderful feeling to be able to wear shoes that are both pretty and comfortable. Keep doing what you're doing, Apropos!
Very friendly on the phone and appreciated her attention on details .
This style, along with Red and Black Tuxedo, are my favorite dressy styles where most women would probably wear a traditional pump or dressy sandal. I really appreciate the comfort and get lots of compliments.
I think I own almost all the current styles except for the corals, browns, and oranges - which wouldn't match anything in my wardrobe. Since they last such a long time, I'm going to need to wait for some new fabrics or hunt down my own fabric and get a custom pair made.
I love the fit and the beautiful grays
Thank you. I now have a Pair of walkable Shoes.
I have many pairs of these shoes and they have been my go to for pants, dresses and especially when I’m going to be on my feet all day.
Very easy to order from website and quick delivery. These shoes run true to size.
Really love them. So comfortable and pretty. I will definitely buy more. Quality shoes.
My new shoes are beautiful! I plan to wear them to a wedding and dance all night. Beauty and comfort, the best!
Comfy, and cute. Please don't ever think of going out of business!
I love my Sips of Silver shoes. The colours are beautiful and the shoes are light on the feet and also stylish. Apropos has so many beautiful shoe designs to choose from and I toyed it with a couple of other pairs in more neutral colours. I'm so glad I chose Sips of Silver, but may well return soon to buy more pairs. These little shoes come highly recommended.
These shoes are very comfortable and have been especially great for traveling. So far I’ve encouraged two other family members to purchase them and they love them too!
Love apropos shoes! Comfortable, stylish, and carry my size. Sips of silver - very versatile, can be casual or dressy. Cathy DB offered great customer service.
Consistently, comfortably fabulous! Love, love, love these shoes...first pair over 16 years ago and just added Sips of Silver to my collection. They take my outfits up a notch and they're a great travel shoe, too!
I just wanted to compliment you on your wonderful shoes! I've just ordered my fourth pair. They've been with me to Italy, hiking at Multnomah Falls, endless coffee dates, and nearly every moment of my day. I can't tell you how many compliments I've received, especially on the bright red plushy pair from a few years back. Keep up the good work!
