Yosi Samra's eponymous line has the subtle ease and whimsy that makes girls swoon. A second-generation shoe impresario, Yosi grew up spending countless hours alongside his father in his shoe factory. In 2009, Yosi had the creative genius to streamline his contemporary collection, and expand on his now ubiquitous ballet fold up flat, the Samara. The line has now expanded to include accessories and handbags, using an array of leathers, satins, patents, and suedes incorporating all color palettes from neutrals to bolds.
I understand the less than stellar reviews you sometimes see online regarding this brand. For example, like some reviewers, my daughter does NOT like a lot of the Yosi Samra flats I own as she thinks they look like slippers. "Some more so, than others," to quote her.I, however, highly recommend all Yosi Samra flats I have purchased. At last count, I have more than a half dozen pairs. How's that for a recommendation!However:I wear these to teach and walk around campus. I agree 100% that they are probably NOT meant for pavement or long days on one's feet.I wish they were a little cheaper (I usually wait for them to go on sale unless I LOVE a pair like these leopard ones). Alternatively put, Yosi Samra flats are arguably a little over-priced.I have only started to purchase Yosi Samra flats as of late; who knows, perhaps these flats will start to fall apart sooner than I expect. I am, in other words, a newbie to Yosi Samra flats.
