I was really excited when I received these shoes, but unfortunately I'm not sure I'm going to be able to wear them. The way the toes taper down to a point leaves my pinky toe squished against the side of my foot, and is uncomfortable pretty much as soon as I put the shoes on. I have narrow feet, and the shoes fit everywhere else, but the shape of the toe box just doesn't leave room for all of my toes. It's unfortunate that an exchange seems to be the only option, as I can't imagine that going a size up will do much for me besides adding more empty space in front of my big toe, which isn't really desirable as these already make my feet look bigger than they are thanks to the point.
We're so sorry to hear the fit isn't exactly right for you - we do have some options to make this right for you. We can process a return, but we can also look at an exchange for another pair plus a partial refund or store credit for the difference; you might want to look at the Roguish Brogues or the Barrister's Boots as an option, as those styles have rounder, slightly roomier toeboxes.
We'll have a customer service representative reach out to you as soon as possible to make this right for you!
I actually went two sizes up from the suggested (a size up from my normal shoe size) and I think they fit really well. The leather is already soft & feels broken in, and I could wear them for hours at a time without discomfort. Definitely a fan of these shoes.
I’m sorry to give this review, and I will post another review when I receive my shoes, but for now I’d rate this experience poorly. I ordered the shoes end of January for a very important conference I have to attend in April. I thought I’d be able to not only receive the shoes I ordered by then, but also have tried it out and received replacements in case the size wasn’t right, by then. Unfortunately, it’s now looking as though I may not even receive them in time at all. However, it is important to remember that some delays are beyond the seller’s control, and perhaps I’m just unlucky in this case. Looking forward to finally getting the shoes!
We're so sorry to hear about this issue - with the global slowdown in shipping times due to COVID-19, there are some delays that are unfortunately out of our control, but we still want to provide the best experience possible and make it up to you if we can. We'll have a customer service representative reach out to you ASAP to make this right.
I bought a pair of the Wingtip Commanders, and had to send them back because they were the wrong size. The Tomboy Toes online support was so quick to respond, and very clear with their instructions and the return shoes. My partner loves the shoes we got in the right size - they are his favorite even for more casual wear. If ordering using their size chart, I would suggest adding a cm or so to your foot size for more room in the shoes.
I was so happy to stumble across this site!
I've always loved masculine styled shoes but I have very small and narrow feet so finding womens dress shoes is often times a challenge.
I ordered these, terrified that they'd slide right off my heel, but they slid on so nice and they're super comfortable! I can't wait to wear these to my brother's wedding. They're so sleek and stylish and the addition of the polish is a classy touch.
If the Falconers ever come back around I'd love to add a pair of those to my wardrobe as well.
Will definitely spread the word about Tomboy Toes and be shopping again in the future!
