In my early 20s I went through quite the slip-on sneakers phase. It was likely influenced by my laid-back southern Californian boyfriend, now husband, who usually showed up in skateboard shoes and surfer shorts. Although our styles have since matured, I still appreciate a chic slip-on, especially for travel or casual everyday outfits. These M.Gemi Cerchios are the grownup version of our sneakers from the past, handmade in Italy with woven leather uppers and generously cushioned, removable insoles. Even though they have the comfort of flats, the platform sole and cushioning lend a little extra boost for shorter legs. This particular style sold out within a week of launch, and was just recently re-stocked!

Some of you might remember my previous post with M.Gemi highlighting a few classic leather flats (their Pastoso and Felize loafers are hands-down my favorite), and I'm partnering with them today to celebrate their first Boston store location! Fellow Bostonians may have already spotted their new storefront at the Prudential Center mall, located next door to Eataly. It just opened today, so be sure to stop by if you're shopping in the area!

This M.Gemi location is a fit shop, so they have each current style available in every size (EUR 35 to 43) to try on for fit and sizing. Your purchase will then be shipped to you and arrive in about 2 business days. For those of you interested in the brand but can't get to a fit shop, they have free shipping and free returns for online orders, and each style also has fit notes online if they run smaller / bigger, or narrower /wider. I usually wear between a 5 or 5.5 in American brands, and consistently fall between 35 and 35.5 in their Italian sizing.

The Cerchio leather sneaker runs on the bigger side and can accommodate wider feet, so I went down to a 35 (online suggests those with narrow feet to size down). For the Felize and Pastoso loafers, I own mostly 35.5 but can go either way - if they're a little snug on you in the beginning, genuine leather or suede should stretch a bit with wear. With pointed toe heels, I almost always go up to 35.5 in most brands to give my toes some room, and it's no exception with M.Gemi pumps sizing.

  6. Chic! I've gotten so many sneakers this past year as well, after not wearing them for a long long time (except for going to the gym). It's one of those things that will never go away, and always comes back every couple years...
