Tory Burch "Caroline" Flat

29 May
Okay, so I know some people really loathe the giant Tory Burch medallion that adorns all the Reva flats, but I kind of dig it.  Like, a lot.  Maybe because my name starts with a “T”, and the logo is like two giant T’s hanging out and being best friends..  (Although, one of my coworkers, who likes to analyze all my shoes, told me that he thought it looked like I was an Indian maiden trying to smuggle giant coins or something.  Haha.  Men are silly.)
Anyway, I do love my Revas, and I wear them almost every day.  
The black with the gold hardware is my go-to, and since I wear tons of black/leopard/red, it’s a nice classic shoe that goes with everything.
Tory Burch “Reva” flat.  $195
I know $200 is a lot for a shoe.  (And, I totally think these are kind of overpriced…)  But, you’ll wear it all the time.  BUT, I will warn you.  These can be kind of uncomfortable.  Especially when they are brand new, out of the box.  The upper part can dig into the top of your foot until the leather stretches out (a few times of wear), and the sole is kind of hard.  AND the back can flop off.  (I know what you’re thinking.  TIER, why do you insist on wearing/buying them if they are so difficult to work with?!  I know.  I know.  I just can’t help myself.  I love them so much.)
That’s why I was super excited to see the “Caroline” model go on sale at Nordstrom.
Tory Burch “Caroline” flat – $154 (reg $235)
Guys.  Guys.  I got this shoe in navy (not listed on the website–I got it at the TB outlet), and it is maybe 23094 times more comfortable that the classic Reva.  That blue band you see is actually elastic, and it makes the shoe so much more comfortable.  (Plus, it doesn’t flop off the end of my foot!)
I know that $154 is still kind of expensive for a flat, but you’ll like it.  Trust me.  And it’s SO cute and nautical and will go with all your navy/red dresses.

    Are they true to size, or do they run small? I have the tory burch Abbey flat in 9.5 (although I usually wear an 8-8.5 in other shoes) and they are comfortable. I wonder if I should get the same size as the Abbey flat?

    Hey girl! I would get your normal size and see. I noticed that my Revas definitely seemed small when I first got them, then stretched out to a point where I feel like they might be half a size too big. But the Carolines seemed to fit perfect at my normal size. Plus, it's Nordstrom, so you could always try buying two sizes and returning the ones that don't work. Nordstrom's return policy is so good, you could even wear them both for a few weeks to figure it out. Hope that helps. 🙂

    dang it! I've been coveting a pair of TB shoes for SO LONG. I'm going to have to pull the trigger on these. I blame you for this! (but thank you at the same time)
