Mary Janes are amazingly versatile shoes. You can wear them with slacks, dresses, even jeans. The dressiness is entirely dependent on how the shoe is styled, and that’s why I’m excited about the Pikolinos Gandia 849-8964F. It’s not your everyday Mary Jane!
For one thing, it’s got lots of embellishments. Note the decorative stitching all along the toe box and at the heel. The ornamental holes in the toe box not only add visual interest, it also helps keep your feet cool! (Such a bonus!) I really like how the heel is not just leather, it also has a stacked wood grain. Even the leather upper is two colors, yet it’s classy, not garish. I love the fact that I can wear this with a variety of outfits in my wardrobe. But its classy and interesting style isn’t just what makes this shoe great….
It’s comfortable! (Of course it’s comfortable, or footwearetc.com wouldn’t carry it! The adjustable strap gives you a custom fit, and there is a gel and foam padded midsole so that you feel like you’re walking on great cushioning. There is even a second insole that helps your feet stay cool and dry. The 1 ½” heel is just high enough to look elegant, yet still makes this a great shoe if you’re on your feet a lot of the day.
The Gandia actually comes in a non-Mary Jane version, called the Gandia 849-9094. It’s basically a pump version of the same shoe, and comes in Tortue/Cuero Leather, or Sandia/Cuero Leather. These are also beautiful, easy to wear shoes with unusual styling that can make you feel unique!
