Shoe Reviews: Urban Outfitters

It's another round of shoe reviews. I ended up returning all three of my last pairs (the Cheerrio booties, the oxfords, and the Peroxys). Boo! I figured that I'm not rich enough to keep shoes that I'm only feeling lukewarm about. I will eventually find the shoes of my dreams. It just might take a little bit more effort.

I had tons of fun taking pictures of these shoes, so I'll let the photos do most of the talking. I think I'm keeping both heels, but the oxfords are another bust.

On to the reviews!.....

Deena & Ozzy Suede Heel Boot in maroon. Regular size 9.
The color of these shoes is gorgeous. They look so plush and expensive. There's a little bit of room in the back of the heels, but not anything troublesome. I was initially worried that the wine color might limit the possibilities, but now looking at it with these neutral bottoms, I think it's a neat pop of color!

UO Suede Pump in red. Sized down a half size to 8.5.
I think these are the great shoes that Kendi Everyday always wears on her blog (and raves about!) If they are, then I can see why. They're very comfortable (I sized down to an 8.5 on the Website's recommendation) and they're super cute. The red is more of a coral/orange, but that just gives them extra character in my opinion. These will work with skirts and pants alike. 

Deena & Ozzy Toe Cap Oxford Shoe in grey. Regular size 9.
Another pair of oxfords, another fail. I'm kinda torn about these, but Husband flat-out hated the shiny toes. In looking at the pictures though, I think the contrast in fabric might actually help the look because it adds dimension to the otherwise squatty-leg flat shoe. I'll keep looking. Someday my perfect oxford will find me...



  1. I LOVE the first two pairs! WOuld you consider keeping both? And too bad about the oxfords - you'll find a pair eventually.

    And is that an Acting Out Skirt I see? Take off the tags - you look adorable in it!!!

  2. LOVE the acting out skirt! and the UO pumps! together...

  3. Yay I'm glad you both like the pumps! And the Acting Out Skirt. :) Kathleen, I think I probably WILL keep both shoes!! I can't resist. Although I do feel a little weird buying red shoes and orange shoes in the same order. lol.
