During the “TAKENOTE” promo I ordered the Collection Darby Eyelet Loafers in Natural Black. I already have the Calf-Hair Leopard Loafers and they are very comfortable. These are just a bit different because the upper is not lined in leather like the other Darby’s.
As soon as I saw them IRL they reminded me immediately of the Valentino Lace Espadrille. The upper is airy like those.
I took my normal size 7 in these and they fit perfect. I like that the upper is trimmed in leather.
The material makes the shoe see-through but you can’t really see much.
The Natural Black color is a better match for what is in my closet. I am worried that the bend at that occurs at the front of the foot when you walk will eventually cause the material to rip or tear. I hope that doesn’t happen, especially after the first wear.
