I love your shoes. I like the comfort and colors, but most of all the thinking that went on in the construction of these shoes!
LOVE these shoes! They were comfortable from the first time I put them on! They are my favorite colors also. They were shipped quickly and I was thrilled when I opened the door and there was the box! Thinking now on a pair of purple Drifters...we'll see... 😉 I get lots of compliments on them, then have to explain about So ill as I am a Delaware resident! Love doing that too!
Been curious about So iLL x Roam products for a while, but living pretty far away (Romania) I always hesitated in the end, for fear they would get lost on the way or that shipping fees would be astronomical. But a little more than a month ago I saw them on sale and decided to take my chances, because I MUST KNOW how they feel and how they walk.
The only other shoes I ever got from the U.S.A. were a pair of Timberlands womens white ledge mid waterproof hiking boots and I wore them relentlessly every fall and winter and on any summer hike or trek, for more than 10 years. I did not know what to expect of this wino shoe. I liked the colours. I liked and was extra curious about the BLOOM technology. I guessed it would at least be a nice light shoe to schlep around town in during the summer, a light travel shoe for the odd flight or drive, etc.
Cities are pretty walkable in Europe and I am a heavy duty walker, even by European standards 🤠 since the first pair of winos arrived a few weeks ago, I walked a bit more than 100km (60 miles, give or take) in them, some days about 20km (13 miles-ish) in one outing. Although some wear is already showing on the sole, it does not feel like anything to worry about any time soon.
I really hope I am not tempting Murphy's Law and tooting their horn barely a month in, but I must say that I love them 💖
They are indeed a light shoe, but they are a hhhhardcore light shoe (and therein lies the Momoa 😂)
While I don't realistically see myself walking to the ends of the Earth in them, we will certainly be travelling a lot together, so I went ahead and ordered myself a second pair of Camo, and I got a pair of Pounamu Green winos for my mom 💚👌🏻
Both were true to size, light on the feet, comfortably wide, and pretty easy to put on and take off (even for my mom, whose dexterity was a bit affected by a stroke she suffered a few years back, and also has the occasional bout of arthritis affecting her hands). Easy to clean, as I had already seen in some previously submitted reviews. I usually keep my footwear quite clean inside and out, I can't bare to see even dry summer dust build up in the nooks and crannies of a shoe, but I must say the camo wino is a shoe that looks good dusted up! After one dog walk that got a little muddier than anticipated, I did have to give them a pretty thorough rinse (luke warm water, gentle spray shower head) and they took longer than I thought they would to dry. (That was the moment I realised I'll need a spare pair 😂) Also took a drive in them and found the rubber sole feels very secure on the pedals, which was an extra delightful benefit.
Not sure how the cost feels for people over there, because by standards over here it was a bit of a splurge, but I am so SO happy I did!
Right now it is only springtime and we are looking at another punishingly hot summer ahead, but I am confident that these winos will be a very comfortable wear even through hellish temperatures, with the right socks.
The only outstanding question I have, that I have not found any detailed answers to online, is: how do I care for them properly so that they live the long life they deserve?
In closing, I'd like to extend a wholehearted thank you from far far away to everyone who worked on these great shoes, they feel downright empowering while looking hella pretty!
I bought these for a new Job, and i am totally in love! I stand 85% of my workday and my feet don't ache at the end of the night. It is so hard to find good shoes to work in as a cashier for me but i hit the jackpot with these. I will be back when the time comes for a new pair, and knowing they are eco friendly just makes them that much better. Thank you and bless you for these shoes!
I'm obsessed with these just as much h as I am of the pink winos I have. So comfortable, they go with almost all of my clothes I own, and I'm getting alot of compliments. Thank you guys!!!
Looking forward to ordering my next pair!
