Just received my Barneys

I'm in Canada and I know until recently, Simple didn't ship to Canada so I was excited when I found out they started to, in early December. I spent some time and looked at what I wanted to order first - being that the winter is here, I went with a pair of Barneys. Typically, I order size 47EU and decided that 13US would be the right size for me. Well, Simple, according to the tracking info I received, was very responsive in shipping - what came next was a let down. The package got to Jamaica, NY fairly quickly, then sat there for quite some time. Once released from there, it sat at Canadian processing for a couple days then it was off to my postal outlet. Ordered Dec 9th and received Jan 5th. Upon receipt, I had to pay $60CDN in duty ($120USD purchase price) - overall, fairly priced when compared to other shoes I've bought. Now, onto my experience with them - have worn them a few times and they are my favourite shoes! Right out of the box comfort and the quality really has me believing that they will only get better with age. I am sold on this company now - only wish the shoes were made on this side of the Atlantic, but that's for another day - I have enough of a hard time finding comfortable shoes that at this stage, I'll take it from wherever they are made. Will be ordering more as Simple is now my goto!

Has Simple sizing changed?

First, I am and have been a huge fan of Simple since first skating in them in the early 90's. I love the look of these Barney's but haven't had a chance to wear them due to the fact that they're too big. For decades, I've wore Simple's size 10.5M. However, since I bought a couple pair of SLO's on sale in Fall of 2020, they seem to be running big. Long way of saying that you might want to double check before ordering your go-to size. I hope to provide a real review once I receive my size 10M in the mail. Cheers!

Super comfortable! Look great. Seem to be super well made. Consistent quality with other simple shoes I’ve owned over the years. Highly recommended!

Super comfortable right out of the box! Tried them on and was amazed at how they felt. Looks great with jeans. Definitely recommend them
