Incredible shoes and an incredible price. When they arrived I was blown away by the intentionality of the packaging. I immediately bought 2 more pairs.
Made with really nice, high grade materials that you can feel when on foot. Fit really nicely and very comfortable shoes. My foot is on the wide side, and they fit me. A little snug but given they are high quality leather, they will break in and fit like a glove. I will be coming back for more Hevias shoes!
Met these guys in Texas over summer, super cool guys, down to Earth. Happy to support.
