I bought these sneakers a while ago but Iâve seen that a lot of people search for reviews on google, so I thought I would do a review of the shoe to let you guys know what I think of them.
The two inch platform shoe features a canvas upper part with a rubber outsole, and a padded collar.
The nude edition of Jeffrey Campbellâs HOMG is not very common across online sites, but I managed to get my size at karmaloop.com which are still available, and can be purchased here. But sizes are limited so be quick!
If the nude edition isnât for you there is a few other prints including the tiger print, pink cosmic print, wolf print and for those cat fans, cat tapestry â which are all available from Karmaloop. There were other sites I found that stocked my size, but I trusted Karmaloop because I have ordered with them before and I know theyâre reliable, and for an international site, they provide a fast delivery service; getting my shoes in only 11 days. Â I originally purchased them for $68, but now the price has been reduced to $56 so get on it!
Before purchasing the shoe however, keep in mind that the does run small, so order a size bigger than your usual size. Another reason I recommend Karmaloop is that they provided this warning as part of the description, and not all shoe sites do this which makes it very frustrating when you receive a shoe that is too small. But not to worry, if the shoe arrives and it is a little tight socks are not needed because of the canvas material. When mine first arrived I had the issue of them being a little snug, but after I wore them without socks a couple of times they stretched enough for me to wear comfortable now with socks.
As you can expect with most sneakers, these are extremely comfortable (once I worn them in of course)! Although they look bulky and heavy theyâre not at all. The rubber outsole is soft enough to give you a good cushion when walking and the padded collar ensures that the canvasÂ doesn’tÂ cause any rubbing against the skin. The platform may be daunting for some who just want to wear plain sneakers, but it does not inhibit your ability to walk comfortably or even run.
Another excellent thing feature about these shoes is that theyâre easy to wash given the canvas material. I even used regular soap to remove a stain from the side of the shoe. Also the laces on this shoe are, like most sneakers, changeable. I am thinking of getting an orange pair of laces to match the rubber outsole. Just be sure to get the extra long ones.
Overall, like many other of Jeffrey Campbellâs shoes they have been a success! I canât believe he is well known for the lita shoe when he has designed some great sneakers. The Hiya sneaker is very similar; I especially love the gold chain design on the white canvas. But I am lusting over the Kirk sneaker; which doesnât have a platform (unusual for me).
The HOMG are super easy to style. Check my outfit posts here and hereÂ for examples of this.
