They aren't the cheapest pair of shoes you'll find, but at $168.00 they aren't the most expensive either. Personally, I was won over by the handmade look, the clean, but still interesting silhouette, and the earthy, grey twill played against the camel-colored leather. They look effortless and casual, but sophisticated enough for a formal outing. I debated whether or not to go for the undeniably cute flats as they might be more practical, and flats tend to be my modus operandi. However, I thought a great pair of heels is tougher to come by, so I ultimately opted for the extra inches.
I tried to find out more about Schuler & Sons which based in Pennsylvania. The shoes have proven to be so well made and comfortable with their flexible soles and quality fabric and leather, that I had visions of taking a road-trip to S&S's PA headquarters to learn about their design process and manufacturing techniques. However, I wasn't able to discern much from basic internet searching, so I'll have to investigate more in depth. For now I'm taking my new heels for a spin. Look to see me in them at my next Del-Reys show!
