I have to qualify my praise for the Alice + Olivia Dustin Flats (praised on IG/mentioned in this post). In spending nearly a whole weekend in them, I have found the buckle difficult to fasten because of improperly punctured holes and was alarmed when the pony hair on the strap came out in patches when I attempted to fasten the buckle.

I still think the shoes are beautiful and fairly comfortable if slightly high-maintenance.


For those of you who also purchased the shoes, did you have the same concerns?
