What woman doesn’t love shoes, right? I’m a sucker for a fun shoe and I think one of the main reasons is because I tend to keep my outfits a little more casual and minimal. I’m not wearing bold crazy fun things like colorful unique dresses. But I’ll do that with a shoe for some reason. I think they pair nicely with a basic white tee and jeans. And they can also complement those fun things too and liven them up even more.
I discovered Larroudé by accident while writing a blog post a few weeks ago. I was searching for fun platforms to round up in this post and stumbled onto these daisy print platform slides. They were just SO fun, and they stuck out as one of my favorites in the roundup. I ended up going down a rabbit hole of the brand and wanted to add so many to my cart.
Larroudé was founded by Marina Larroude who is from Brazil, but worked in the fashion world in NYC as fashion director of Teen Vogue and then VP, Fashion Director at Barney’s. So yeah, she knows style. She launched Larroudé in the midst of a pandemic in 2020. With a goal to create fashion-forward pieces that weren’t outrageously priced like high fashion items, Larroudé shoe collection was born.
The first pair I had to have were the Dolly Platforms. They are a fun platform sky high sandal that come in a few basic colors and also really fun prints. I finally wore them for an entire night and had to share my full review as the number one question I got was “are those comfortable?”.
Larroude Shoe Review
While these were technically the first pair I discovered from the brand. It was truly the Dolly Platforms that were calling my name. I’m a sucker for a fun 70s platform and these were it. And perfect for summer outfits in the beautiful raffia fabric.
Fit And Sizing
I found Larroudé shoes to be true to size for me. I did notice the footbed is a tad wide, but honestly, I think this allowed them to be more comfortable and not squeeze my toes.
While the Dolly Platforms are very tall, they are actually very comfortable. The 1.5-inch platform in the front helps to balance out the very tall 4.5-inch heel. A super big block heel also makes these easy to walk in. These shoes also have the Larroudé cloud memory foam in the sole for ultimate comfort.
These shoes are high quality and you can just tell the moment you take them out of the box. The cloud memory foam insole, high-quality raffia product, and the suede leather sole are all signs of a well-made shoe with quality materials.
Larroude Dolly Review
After wearing the Dolly Platforms from Larroude out for a few hours standing the entire time, I can genuinely attest to the comfort of these sky-high raffia platforms. They were insanely comfortable to wear around. Walking in them was also really easy. I felt very secure in such a high heel. As I said, I’m a sucker for a good 70s platform and these just check all the boxes for me. I’d take them in any and all colors and prints. The Dolly Platforms are truly going to be a closet favorite for me this summer.
Styling them is also super fun and easy. This neutral shoe can go with all my summer dresses and jumpsuits. I’ll be pairing them with this black linen romper I love, and all my favorite Reformation dresses. I just recently wore them with this matching set from DISSH. They’ll also be great with just a great pair of jeans and a pretty summer top. You can’t go wrong with that combination. Truly these are going to be the go-to shoe for summer. They’re giving my favorite espadrilles a run for their money.
