This review of Me Too Shoes “Norina” and Adam Tucker by Me Too “Yolo” is sponsored by Me Too Shoes. The opinions are completely our own based on experience.
I’ve always associated Me Too shoes with ballet flats like the cushioned, foot-hugging Olympia with chain vamp detail or the demure Halle skimmer. If you thought the same, think again! Me Too is so much more than ballet flats now–the collection includes wedges, block-Heel sandals, even ankle boots. Even more good news–if you wear footwear in extended sizes, check out Me Too’s collection of footwear in sizes from 4-13 and wide widths.
Beth and I tried out two new styles by Me Too and Adam Tucker (a youthful casual-chic collection for Me Too shoes): the Norina wedge espadrille and the Yolo block-heel mule. Both capture the essence of Me Too’s spring line: fresh and contemporary; always keeping comfort in mind.
I’ve held out on hopping the blush-colored-everything train for a year now, but finally got on board with this pair of adorable block heel mules by Adam Tucker. The color is more of a taupe-rose and goes with almost anything. Even better, the style itself is remarkably versatile, paring well with everything from cropped denims to fancier sundresses.
I love the solid 1 3/4″ heel on the Yolo. I can walk confidently and securely (even on grass as the heel doesn’t sink into the ground). The wide suede forefoot band is soft and covers the bunion area without irritation or pinching. Note that I am a medium width foot, but my forefoot is wider due to moderate bunions. The wide suede band fits well–my feet don’t slide forward.
I tend to experience ball-of-foot pain in heels higher than two inches, but the lower-heel plus 1/2 inch memory foam layer from heel to toe is a winning combo for my feet. Arch support is minimal, but not expected for this type of shoe.
Of course, the Yolo isn’t a walk-all-day shoe, but I know it’ll see plenty of wear on my dressier days, whether going out to dinner with friends, or attending an outdoor wedding or graduation ceremony. Plus, wearing the Yolo gives me a good excuse for a fresh pedicure!
The Adam Tucker Yolo by Me Too shoes runs true to size, comes in brights and neutrals, and is available in sizes 5.5-11 for $49.99-79.95 from Zappos, MeTooShoes.com, and Nordstrom.
If you’ve wanted to try the espadrille trend, but are put off by the typical heel height of over two inches, don’t give up yet! The versatile Norina is yet another casual-chic spring shoe by Me Too with a jute-wrapped heel just shy of two inches. Beth describes the heel height as “just right,” as she hardly notices she’s wearing a heel.
We like the Norina’s closed toe, especially during this cool spring when toes aren’t quite ready to come out from hibernation. Yet when the weather finally does warms up (fingers crossed), the perforated nubuck upper provides air circulation to keep feet cool. What a great transitional shoe! Beth also appreciates the closed-toe upper as it covers the bunion area nicely without irritation.
As is typical with all Me Too shoes, a half-inch layer of memory foam cushions feet from heel to toe so the whole foot benefits. While the cushioning may provide minimal to moderate arch support, it isn’t the enhanced support you’d find in Vionic or Dansko.
Beth appreciates the versatility of the Norina wedge and anticipates pairing it with everything from casual denim to flowery sundresses this summer. Keep the Norina in mind if you have a garden wedding to attend!
Find the Me Too Norina in 5 lovely neutrals and pastels, sizes 5.5-11 for $59.99-89.99 from Nordstrom, MeTooShoes.com, Zappos and Amazon.
