I ordered the Commanders in 34 and they fit perfectly. The Falconers are gorgeous shoes but the 34 was much too wide and long.
These shoes are beautiful, but these are some of my personal cons:
1. Came out of the box horribly misshapen and smooshed. I've been wearing them around my apartment to get some of the major creases smoothed out.
2. The sole of the shoe is completely smooth, with only the heel having a bit of grip to it, so I'll probably be slipping around a lot.
3. And finally, the leather seems softer and floppier than my pair of wingtip commanders that I bought a month ago. Personally, I like stiffer leather that breaks in gradually.
My guess is that most of these cons can be chalked up to the fact that they were made 2 or 3 years ago. Maybe Tomboy Toes level of craftmenship and quality has improved significantly over time, or perhaps the shoes were handled and transported a lot while in storage all this time.
Regardless of these cons, these shoes are still very handsome, and I'll definitely be wearing them to parties and whenever I don't have to walk a lot, but I don't think these will become an everyday wear like the wingtips have. If you're absolutely in love with the look and aesthetic of these shoes, I would definitely reccomend them.
As cool and smooth as it gets
The shoes fit great, and are beautifully made. While there were some hiccups in getting the actual product to me, their customer service was incredible and they solved the problem surprisingly quickly for such a small company. I’m beyond happy with my experience!
I jumped on the preorder for these gorgeous shoes! I already have the Downtown Dappers (size 38, I'm usually around a 9.5womens/7mens) and they fit perfect, if not a little loose. So I ordered the Falconers in size 38 also but tragically they are just too tight for comfort! While I know they are leather so will stretch a little, I found them to be too tight all around and in places I don't expect much give (too short on my toes, tight on the heel, and tight on the sides where the edge of the black toe panel is) So I'll be exchanging them for the next size up!
I got them in Peregrine Brown. The material is gorgeous and the leather is so soft. I am so happy to see another natural leather Tomboy Toe shoe!
