OTBT Springfield Reviewed
OTBT makes some great shoes. This shoe just won’t go away. The OTBT Springfield style keeps coming back year after year in new colors, textures and patterns. I wish more shoe companies would hold on to their beloved styles instead of retiring them after a season or two (Hello Dansko, I’m talking to you). The Springfield combines slingback, mary jane and wedge into one cute shoe with attention to comfort details such as: EVA footbed that molds to the foot and provides good support and light cushioning, wide toe box and adjustable instep strap. Even the 1 1/2″ wedge heel from OTBT provides a little lift which could help with plantar fasciitis pain.
The OTBT Springfield is a wonderful little transitional shoe from summer into fall as it encloses the toes yet still has a sandal “open-air” vibe. If you’re between sizes, I’d recommend ordering up as this style runs a little small. If you have bunions or bumpy big toe knuckles (how else to describe them??), you may find the vamp to restrictive on those sensitive spots.
Have you been a fan of OTBT as long as I have? Any other models you’d like me to review? Look forward to reading your comments below.
