Leather Shoes You Don't Need To Break In

3-minute read

We’ve all been there–slipping on a pair of leather shoes and feeling immediate discomfort. “How long will this last? Will they stretch? Are they going to be comfortable eventually?” High-quality structured leather shoes often have a break-in period of 5-8 wears in which the leather softens and molds to your foot. For many, this period is uncomfortable and results in blisters.


Poppy Barley EverEase flats eliminate the traditional shoe structure, resulting in instantly comfortable footwear that doesn’t require a break-in period. Each EverEase  style pares down comfort to its simplest form–a flexible sole and no rigid foot constraints, with an exceptionally soft leather upper body. The result: shoes that feel like slippers for all-day comfort.

The Eyelet Oxford is the first style introduced  into our EverEase line-up. The shoe features elastic laces to secure the shoe to the foot while being  reminiscent of an oxford. The Eyelet Oxford is the perfect alternative to sneakers–more playful, more dressy, and just as comfortable.

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
