Before we get into this Sarah Flint Rosie review, here’s a Sarah Flint promo code to save 15% on your first pair or any pair of full-price shoes: SARAHFLINT-CCHEATHER1. You can find my previous Sarah Flint review of the Perfect Block Sandals here.
I’m so excited to share my second pair of Sarah Flint shoes that have proudly earned a place in my closet. I am firmly in the camp that you can never have have enough leopard print shoes and these Rosie calf hair loafers are sure to be a staple in my fall and winter wardrobe.
About the Sarah Flint Aesthetic
First, I want to give myself a pat on the back for basically nailing the Sarah Flint aesthetic here. The brand is timeless, grandmillennial, and British-leaning. Did I mean to go so literal in the outfit I posted here? Absolutely not. I actually didn’t even intend to take these photos, but when I saw this backdrop while in the Hudson Valley, I knew I had to spring for it.
If you visit one of the Sarah Flint pop-ups, you’ll see this classic aesthetic in action. The Georgetown store is absolutely stunning (there’s floor-to-ceiling William Morris wallpaper and fabric that’s so swoonworthy), and, pssst, if you go in-person, you can still use my code to snag 15% off your shoes: SARAHFLINT-CCHEATHER1.
Sarah Flint Rosie Review
I chose the Rosie as my second pair of Sarah Flint shoes because I wanted a classic semi-flat that I could wear casually or dress up. I wanted something that I could wear with a pair of jeans all fall, then transition to tights and skirt as the weather cools. With the almond shaped toe and slight heel, these could read as a pump — they won’t look dowdy at all with a dress. Yet, the loafer style keeps them feeling effortless.
The official description of these shoes says: 30mm (1inch) flat, almond toe, slip-on heeled loafer, handcrafted in Italy, leopard print dyed hair calf upper, leather lining and insole, leather outsole
How do they fit?
I wear between a 7 and a 7.5 and I opted for a (37.5) 7.5. They fit like a glove. The description does recommend sizing a half-size down, but I chose not to do that.
Are they comfortable?
The Rosie has 3mm of padding in the shoe, which means it wears just as comfortably as a flat (I mean, a 1 inch heel is basically perfect — it might be even better than a truly flat shoe). This particular shoe will stretch a bit with wear, but I had minimal break in. I spent 12 hours touring the Hudson Valley the second day I wore them and didn’t have a single blister.
How do they wear?
Great! The calf hair feels and looks super durable.
What can you wear them with?
The Sarah Flint Rosie is a super versatile three-season shoe. I plan on wearing these from fall through early spring. Here, I wore them with a pair of black jeans, my trusty Grayson button down, and a J. Crew sweater blazer. I’d wear them with regular jeans and a t-shirt, a black turtleneck and leather leggings, black tights and a sweater dress.
Would I recommend the Sarah Flint Perfect Block Sandal?
100%. These are beautifully made calf hair loafers that look sophisticated and chic. I feel instantly pulled together as soon as I put them on. I admittedly have more than a few pairs of leopard shoes and these have quickly moved to the top of the list.
