    Designer Style, handmade Comfort and Quality

    These flats are a 5 Star and this is my fourth color. Couture quality, timeless style with better quality than any designer shoes out there. I bought my first 4.5 years ago and I now own multiple styles from Essen. I get the most comments out of all my shoes from Essen as well. The cream and whites are my favorite colors so far, but the baby blue and silver are next on my list. Many friends and family members have asked and bought these as well. Runs try to size and if full size only I go up a half size. These flats are a staple to own in many colors and will be as long as they are made.

    Classic comfort

    I wear this shoe so often and it has only gotten more and more comfortable! The leather is beautiful and the classic design can be paired with any outfit. I had a little bit of discomfort on the first two wears while the leather softened and molded to my foot just at the top front seam, but it is now perfect!
