Great shoes; true to size. Cement color is more like taupe-ish khaki (a bit darker than it seems per website pics) but i like it -- very versatile. Brown thing at heel is really cushiony and doesn't look strange like I thought it might. High vamp isn't irritating because leather is so soft. Cork insoles included don't really fit inside the shoe (must be cut) but I'm not using them anyway (yet). Toe box is slightly narrower than usual for this brand but still okay.
Comfortable Slip On
The Elina Eco is just as they promote it "moccasin" inspired. The slip on shoe is roomy in the toe area and around the top of the foot. It has great stretch with its elastic knotted tie. I really appreciated the soft material behind the ankle. Just to note: I chose to experience the shoe with the included cork insoles. In the end...this shoe was very comfortable just not the look I was wanting. Have ordered and looking forward to trying out the Mata Canvas soon.
Love the style, but
When I walked the canvas dug into the top of my foot at the bend so I had to return them for comfort sake.
