|Gap Bow City Flats|
They're comfortable to walk short distances in but I would not recommend them for all-day wear. I was using them to walk through streets, on sightseeing adventures and by the end of the day I found that my ankle was really hurting. The ball of my foot hurt a lot as well - they provide zero support. They're really flimsy (they are made to be that way, they fold up when you are not wearing them and they do not have a full sole).
They're leather but the leather is basically .09 of a millimeter thick. A hole in the leather emerged after the first week I wore them; I'm not sure if this is because they're too small on me or because they're so poorly made but other reviews on Gap.com (that I see NOW) also discuss the holes.
They're comfortable enough to wear for a walk around the mall, or for other light indoor use, but if you want them for outdoor use, I found that they're too delicate and they're not constructed to withstand much.
They looked like this when I first bought them.
This is what they look like after 3 weeks of use:
|The leather is all worn down on the bottom already :(|
|I am obviously a contortionist.|
They are really adorable and I wanted to love them. They come in a variety of colors and patterns which I really like.
A plus: the flats come in a medium sized carrying pouch that matches the color of the shoes. I really liked the pouch and I found it useful for storing items when traveling.
Alyson of The Average Girl's Guide really likes her pair so, maybe it's just me ;).
If interested, buy them here.
