Yellow Chic Shoes from Oasap {Review}

There's something you need to know about me: I am a sucker for shoes. So when I had the opportunity to review a pair of shoes from Oasap.com, I jumped at the chance!

I chose these slightly pointy kitten-heel shoes in faux-suede from a huge variety of shoes on their website. The fact that these shoes are vegan is a plus for them in my book. (Note that the shoes come in whole sizes only and I would recommend ordering up a size if you fall between sizes.)

One thing that I noticed about Oasap was that they make sure to donate from their proceeds to help refugees and children in need. That is one of the main reasons why I decided to work with them!

My order from Oasap came fairly quickly and I noticed that they always have free worldwide shipping. Free shipping is a MUST!



When the shoes arrived they were even cuter than on the website! Unfortunately they also came with an overpowering plastic smell. I had to let them air out for a while. After that initial smell-shock, I no longer notice any smell from them. Initially, I also found that the inside stitching was a little different between the two shoes--but I couldn't feel any difference with the shoes on. Now I don't notice it at all!

Wearing the shoes is very comfortable and I feel that they were made to wear all day. The faux-suede has stayed looking good for the two months that I have had the shoes! The style is just amazing and I've worn these shoes teaching as well as to a summer BBQ--and I always get compliments! 

Overall, I love these shoes and I am glad that I have them as a part of my shoe collection. I wear them at least twice a week. The negative of these shoes would have to be that the attention to quality is somewhat lacking. In fact, after having them for two months, some of the sole is peeling off near the heel. (This is happening with other shoes that I own, so perhaps I am particularly hard on that part of shoes.) I have mixed feelings about these shoes because they do have quality issues, but on the other hand, these are some of my favorite shoes that I own! They definitely win with style & wear-ability points!
