This is our first time carrying the brand Fortress of Inca. They are a newer company that hand makes all of their shoes in Peru using sustainable practices and super soft leathers. When these first came in Brenna couldn't stop trying on the "Madeline" and eventually ended up taking them home.
After 6 months of wear these shoes are even more comfortable than they were at first. The leather footbed had softened up and formed to her foot. The brown leather sole has darkened a little from its original color giving them some added character.
She wears these shoes at least 3 times a week, to work or around town. They are easily the most comfortable shoes she owns and pair well with nearly every outfit in her closet. With the leather sole she is planning on taking them to a cobbler and adding a rubber sole so they can be worn in our wet Portland weather.
We have just re-stocked the 'Madeline' In black at both locations, and in a Carmel color at pedX. Come try them on and fall in love!
