Today is National Bosses Day and with Everlane’s recent release of their Boss Loafer it had me thinking about being a Girl boss myself. I currently work full time as an Assistant General Manager for an organic grocery store in the DMV and its a position I worked hard to get of a long time! As soon as I saw Everlane release this shoe I knew I wanted a pair, blame it on the cleaver name or the beautiful shape either way its a great pair to add to your wardrobe that is sure to make you feel like a Boss!
Everlane kindly gifted me a pair in dark taupe (my choice) which is the perfect shade of grey with a little hint of brown. I wanted something a little different since I already have a black pair of loafers, and I found the dark taupe to be a perfect neutral. I ordered a size 5.5 which is my typical size with them and they fit perfect. My feet are pretty wide and I found they still fit comfortably, and are not to narrow In my opinion. I also think that the pointed toe is just enough without feeling too over the top for everyday wear.
I love their transparency on their website when it comes to their factories, you can see exactly where this shoe was made and what factory. Their loafers are made in Brescia Italy, which started in 1974. That factory employs 60 people and is run under two owners, Paolo and Tita.

Just like any other good leather shoe these do have a break in period and usually the first few days I can make it about 4 hours before I need to change them. Always be mindful of this when wearing new shoes and be sure to bring a back up pair! I also recommend wearing them around the house for an hour when you first get them to get an early start on the breaking in process.
I also own their Modern Loafer (which is one of my most worn pair of shoes) and the big difference between these two loafers besides looks is the sole. The Modern Loafer has a wood sole and the Boss Loafer has a rubber sole. I haven’t really noticed much of a difference but I will say I have had the Modern loafer for over 3 years and it still has tons of life left! I do tend to wear out rubber soles quick so we shall see how that goes. Luckily a trip to the cobbler can fix almost any worn out shoe!
They also just re-released their Boss Boot and I’m in love!
Heres to all the Girl Bosses out there, the mothers, the single mothers, ladies that are the head of the household. Thanks for working hard to take care of yourself and your family! Happy National GIRL Bosses Day!
