Earthies Tolo Review

Earthies has come up with some great new styles this Fall. Pine green, spruce green, forest green, hunter green–whatever you call it, it’s a beautiful color for a fall shoe. The Earthies Tolo is a new style designed on a similar last to the popular Bindi style.Earthies Tolo heel

You don’t need to worry about arch support, the Earthies Tolo has plenty. A hidden 1 1/4″ wedge heel provides a little lift and the contoured footbed with molded latex cushioning cradles the heel while supporting the arch. A soft and stretchy gathered rear provides a secure fit–my narrow heels stay put.

Thanks to the gorgeous forest green suede, classic lines and slight wedge heel, I can wear these for dress as well as casual. I particularly like the metal button accent on contrasting metallic leather band on the back of the heel.

Because the Tolo is a ballet style flat, the vamp will cross the top of
the foot somewhere near the bunions, if you should be so unfortunate to be the owner of one or two. I’ve come to realize that my right foot is slightly larger than my left foot due to RA changes and surgery. So, the Tolo vamp crosses the base of the big toe and its bunion on my right foot, but fits my left foot well (crosses below bunion). I probably should have gone with the size 10 in this particular close-fitting style.

All in all, the Earthies Tolo is a lovely flat that isn’t really flat and I foresee pairing it with dark denim jeans, skirts and dresses this fall into winter season (suede protector is a must).

The Earthies Tolo is available in black leather and four seasonal colors of suede. Available in whole and half sizes 5-10,11,12; medium and wide widths: $140 at, free shipping and returns; $139.99 at Zappos, free shipping and returns; $139.95 at The Walking Company, free shipping/free returns to store; $139.95 at, free shipping/free returns for rewards members.

    These are cute! How are they for neuroma?

    These look like just what I was looking for. But I have a question: On my monitor, these don’t look green at ALL — they look like a deep indigo blue or even navy. It also looks like you paired it with a blue dress. How much “green” is in this color? TIA!

    • Kirsten says:

      Good question! They are a cool tone and very dark. I guess the best color description is a very dark spruce green with blue undertones. Dress has both dark blue and green in it.

    Those shoes seem so comfortable just looking at them! but they seem a bit expensive. What do you think Kirsten?

  4. Kimberly says:

    Thank you for focusing on comfort and style! You are obviously very knowledgeable. Im curious if you can suggest any shoes that are less than $80 and non leather/vegan?

  5. Karen says:

    I have a very narrow foot foot, triple A in the heel. Will these work for me?

    I have two pairs of Earthies “flats” and they aren’t really flats. I like them but they don’ttake the place of flats.
