Söfft takes beautiful European designs and makes them comfortable

May 26th, 2008

Söfft ShoesDaily Dish shoe reviews are few and far between so I am super excited to finally do another one, and I’m not just saying that because Söfft Shoe Company makes some of the most beautiful styles of flats, wedges and heels I’ve ever seen. I say that because they have beautiful, handmade European-inspired shoes that are surprisingly comfortable.

For this review I was able to try two styles of Söfft shoes, so I carefully browsed the site for both a flat and a heel so I could get a well rounded “feel” of both Söfft’s style and comfort. (Sigh…this job definitely has its perks!) It was a very hard decision (you try just choosing two!) but I finally went with the Pilar flat in pewter and the Vivian high heel in black patent…and then I anxiously waited for the UPS man to knock on my door.

Söfft ShoesThe Pilar got its test run at a family birthday party and were the perfect complement to skinny-leg jeans. The insole was super cushy and I loved the added touches like the corset lace and bow on the back of the heel. They did take a little breaking in (a warm day where you’re on your feet the whole time is not the best first-run for any new patent leather shoe) but that was related more to the stiff patent leather rather than the nicely padded insole. And I absolutely love it when a company adds a finishing touch by putting something decorative on the sole of the shoe, which Söfft does with a beautiful floral pattern. (Note: this shoe runs about a half size small.) I’ve worn these shoes quite a few times already and they are definitely one of my favorite pairs of shoes!

Söfft ShoesThe Vivian is all sass, and what woman doesn’t love a sassy pair of shoes! These peep-toe slings have a 3 1/2” heel (great for showing off the legs this summer) and look perfect whether you’re wearing a skirt, jeans, or dressy bermuda shorts. And again, Söfft adds a great little touch with French piping and stacked heel (and that fun floral print on the sole). I have very few pairs of heels I can wear all day and so I’m more than happy the Vivian is one of them. I may have to get another color, especially that yummy red. Talk about sassy!

Söfft ShoesAnd I know this review covers Söfft’s Spring 2008 collection, but you’ve got to check out Fall 2007. They have some to die for boots and heels. I’m hoping these are still available because I think I’m going to have to buy the Calypso, the Modena III, and maybe even the Regina. It’s not too early for Christmas shopping, is it?—Emily

  22. Lori H on said:

    I love the Vivian – they look so sassy but the heel is not so high that I break my neck. Looks great with dresses or jeans.

  23. donna s on said:

    This is the first that I have heard of these shoes, but I love the Maren wedge. I am a shoe fanatic so the idea of a cute shoe that is also comfortable sounds like heaven to me.

  24. Rachel on said:

    I’m not one who usually gets excited about shoes, but these are absolutely beautiful shoes. I like the Roma for myself. I was looking at several of the other styles for my youngest daughter. She’s 10 but she is a big shoe fanatic. She would love most of the shoes here, and most of the small sizes would fit her too!

  25. Evelyn Franks on said:

    Leta is great looking! I can always use a sturdy, stylish shoe. Thanks!

  31. Sara DeMaster Smith on said:

    Okay, it is IMPOSSIBLE to choose one favorite! Too many beautiful choices. I would probably choose the Phoebe flat for its versatility and because my husband is just an inch taller than I am (sigh), but the heels are just scrumptious!
