Over the past year I’ve acquired a mini collection of Jenni Kayne shoes from my time as a Jenni Kayne Ambassador. I love them so much that I’ve purchased JK shoes on my own as well. I’ve reviewed the individual shoes on my blog in the past but I thought I’d put them all in one post so it’s easy to compare. I’ll also be adding to this post whenever I buy more styles (which is inevitable…lol). So here is my Jenni Kayne Shoe Review!
Jenni Kayne Shoe Review
Pony Hair Crossover Sandal Review
The Pony Hair Crossover Sandal was the first pair of shoes I received as a Jenni Kayne Ambassador. I was so excited because I’d had this pair on my radar for awhile! I’m not a huge fan of cheetah/leopard print on clothes but I LOVE it on shoes and accessories. These sandals did not disappoint and they are one of my favorite pairs of Jenni Kayne shoes.
I’m wearing the size 9 and they fit perfectly. I have a narrow foot and am either a size 8.5 or 9 in shoes. The website says to size down if in between sizes. However, I took my larger size on the recommendation of a customer service rep. I would say that this shoe runs small and is better suited for medium to narrow feet.
Raffia Crossover Sandal Review
The Raffia Crossover Sandal is similar to the Pony Hair Crossover Sandal except they are made from a woven raffia material instead. I think these are really cool! I love the woven detail along the footbed – I think it’s really unique. It’s also a neutral sandal that goes with ANYTHING.
However, there was a loose thread on mine that has since unraveled even more. So for that reason, I don’t recommend these as much as the Pony Hair Crossover sandal. They are also not as comfortable. The woven raffia is rather rough against the skin. These don’t stay on my foot as well because the raffia material doesn’t stick to the skin like leather does (if that makes sense). I’m wearing the size 9 and they fit similar to the Pony Hair sandals. I definitely would size up if you are in-between sizes. I would not size down because I think they run on the smaller side. This sandal will work best on medium to narrow feet.
Cotton Crossover Sandal
Unlike the two crossover sandals I mentioned above, the Cotton Crossover Sandal has more of a molded footbed (similar to Birkenstocks). For that reason, the Cotton Crossover is the most comfortable out of all the crossover sandals! The footbed is a soft, suede-like leather and the upper is cotton.
I have the size 9 and like the other sandals I would suggest taking your larger size if in-between. If you have a wider foot this sandal will be the best for you since it runs a little wider than the Pony Hair Crossover and the Raffia Crossover Sandal. I have a narrow foot and these still fit me but I’ve noticed they are slightly looser than my other crossover sandals. However, I don’t think I could have sized down because then the footbed would be too short.
Canvas Slide Sneaker Review
The Canvas Slide Sneaker is a simple, slide on sneaker with an open back. It has a canvas upper and thick rubber sole. This is probably my least favorite style because I don’t think there’s anything special to this shoe. They feel kind of clunky on my foot, to be honest. I also don’t like that the stark white canvas gets dirty easily. There is a Suede Slide Sneaker available and if I got to choose I would probably go with that one.
I’m wearing my usual size 9 and I think it fits length wise. Since I do have a narrow foot this sneaker feels a little wide to me. So if you have a medium or wide foot this sneaker will probably fit perfectly for you.
Shearling Mule Review
The Shearling Mule is a cozy, statement making mule. I love the texture that the Shearling Mule brings to an outfit. The upper is shearling and sole and inner lining is leather. So this mule looks cozy on the outside but it’s not super cozy on the inside. I’m wearing size 9 again so I would say it runs true to size in Jenni Kayne sizing.
I do really like this shoe, however, it’s not super practical. I think the style is more suited for fall or winter but it (obviously) has an open back so it’s not going to keep your feet warm. The shearling material also gets things stuck in it so wearing them outside on anything other than flat pavement is a little difficult.
If you are looking for a super comfy mule I would suggest trying the Shearling-Lined Mule since that has the shearling on the footbed and lining.
