After a rousing success with my Everlane Modern Loafers (see my review here), I thought I would try out the Everlane Modern Point. I especially liked the black and white two tone option as they are a less expensive version of some high end designer loafers that I had seen from Celine.
I have had flats like this in the past and I get loads of wear. What I didn’t like about my previous pair was that they were lined with pleather and that meant they were sweaty and didn’t give. I found my Ann Taylor version to be uncomfortable in the heat of summer. I felt for the price they were a huge disappointment.
Everlane Modern Point Review
However after a few wears I decided my initial reaction was simply due to my loafers being more worn in and molded to my foot.
The Everlane Modern Point vs the Everlane Modern Loafer
The Modern Point flat is a daintier more feminine shoe. It pairs well with dresses as easily as it does with jeans or dress pants. There is less detail to the shoe, it is a smooth, flat leather. Also if you read the descriptions on the Everlane site you will see that they are made of different types of leather.
The Modern Loafer is heavier more menswear inspired. The sole of the loafer sort of over shoots the leather point and there is is a stitching detail which gives this shoe more visual interest. The leather is even heavier or thicker in feel. I feel like this shoe is more substantial.
Personally I think I would buy a second pair of the loafers before I buy a second pair of the modern point by Everlane. I just feel like the loafers fit my feet better. Perhaps because I have wider feet this is the case. That being said these are beautiful shoes that would easily cost $300 or more via a traditional retailer so I am happy that Everlane exists so I can get the quality I dream of at the price I can afford.
I did size up to an 8.5 where in other shoes I wear a 7.5 or 8. If you don’t size up a half a size from the larger of your usual sizes I feel like you will be sorry.
What do you think of the Everlane Modern Point review? Will you pick up a pair?
