Cleo stripe canvas loafers with bow (A4978, $165) run from size 5, then in half sizes from 6-10.5, 11 & 12. Color choices are reef blue and sandy reef.
Both color sare $109.99 online. The sandy reef are $99.99 in-store. The reef blue were still regular price as of last week.
Size 7.5 – This is my usual shoe size. In most J. Crew flats I’ve taken a 7.5, unless there’s a pointed toe, like the Viv flats. My foot is medium width and the 7.5 fit comfortably with no issues at all. They’re comfortable right off the bat.
I thought the reef blue would be a slightly darker shade of blue. If I hadn’t seen the sandy reef, I would’ve been convinced they sent me the wrong color. It’s close to natural, but not as tan as the sandy reef. The bow is cute, of course. I’m not digging the brown heel and wonder what black would’ve looked like since the navy is on the darker side.
Pass for me, which is why I stood on a white board for the photographs. They’re super cute, but didn’t ring my bell. I like the stripes, bow and the comfort of the shoe and still give it a thumbsup.
Note that prices change regularly at Macy’s and the price might go up as early as Monday. The Chinese Laundry shoes are also available at Nordstrom, where the web description mentions that they’re tts. They’re on sale for $44.96, but the price won’t go back up. Free shipping both ways at Nordy’s.
