Everlane Editor Slingback Review: Rosewood Suede
Shoes are not usually my weakness (handbags are) but when I spotted the Everlane Editor Slingback in Rosewood Suede, I had to have them. My hunt for a pair of flats in the perfect shade of pink began years ago with the Paul Andrew Rhea flat in Turkish Rose. I never did pull the trigger because I just couldn’t get past the $600 price tag, no matter how perfect the color was. So when I stumbled across the Everlane Editor Slingback in Rosewood Suede a few weeks ago, it was a no brainer.
I absolutely love the design of the Everlane Editor Slingback. It’s equal parts chic, classic, and feminine. The low vamp shows just enough toe cleavage for a leg lengthening effect. The square cut keeps the slingback flat still professional enough for the office. The design of the Everlane Editor Slingback is even better and more flattering on the foot than the design of the Paul Andrew Rhea. So at less than half the price, the Everlane Editor Slingback is a steal.
Everlane offers this suede slingback in four different colors: black, natural, mustard, and rosewood. My closet is primarily composed of rose, nude, and blush pink hues so Rosewood was obviously my first choice. Black was my second choice because it just looks so chic.
Fit & Comfort
I have a few pairs of Everlane shoes and they’ve always fit true to size for me. The Editor Slingback is no exception. I purchased these flats in my normal size (6) and I’ve had no issues. They did take a little time to break in because the suede leans towards being stiffer and more structured. All in all, it wasn’t anything too terrible.
The quality, like almost all other Everlane products, is excellent. The shoe looks and feels well made. The edges are clean, crisp, and straight. The stitching is tight. The suede feels soft and durable yet the shoes is perfectly structured. These definitely look and feel like a high end shoe at less than half the cost.
These shoes are a must in any girl’s wardrobe. They’re equally easy to style for the office or for the weekend. Although they’re pink, the shade is a muted dusty pink which makes it practically a neutral. You can match it with your basic neutrals (blacks, whites, beiges, grays, navy) or with other colors such as red, mustard yellow, emerald green – the possibilities are endless.
