black runs true to size

Hurry, only 3 left in stock!

We set out to design a shoe that is comfortable, feminine, and totally unconstructed...which basically just means as soft and un-stiff (yes, that's a word we made up) as possible. We all need that easy shoe that feels like you're wearing a sock - but isn't your fuzzy bunny slippers so you still look cute in your cropped jeans and sweater (ok, or maybe sweatshirt!). You'll slide right into the PUFFIN's soft buttery leather, soft leather lining and leather insole. No hardware, no fuss. And with our signature molded arch (yes, our shoes have it, too!) it's the perfect bootie (or shoe-tee) for kicking around.

Our all-leather, handmade soles quickly custom form to your feet and loosen up within hours. The vegetable-tanned leather will age beautifully with a gorgeous patina and the two rose gold metal nail heads on the inner footbed give the signature touch to all beek products. 

The PUFFIN is running big - please size DOWN a half size. If you need any help with with sizing or fit, you can always contact us at: help@thebeeknest.com.

Materials + Construction

* Soft, supple vegetable-tanned leather upper and lining
* All-leather outsole
* Super comfortable molded leather arch
* Our signature two rose gold metal studs at inside of sole
* Tiny hand-pounded nail heads around insole
* No heel cup (which means no stiffness in the heel)
* No toe box (you get the idea, no stiffness again)

This shoe should fit snug at first so don't be afraid if you have to really pull it on. That's the beauty of it! The leather will soften with wear and mold to your feet. And as is the case with all nice leather, we recommend wiping clean and conditioning the product 2-3 times a year. These shoes are made to last - so treat them with love!

High quality leather outsoles (the bottom of the shoes) can be naturally slippery at first. Go ahead and scuff them up and you are good to go!

Love them

Love them but holding my breath. I purchased the 7 but they slip on my heel so I returned them for 6.5. It says to wear them twice and if ya don’t love them return them but it’s very tight on my toes, so hoping they break in and feel better. I normally wear a 7 or 7.5

The leather is like butter. These are so comfy all day long. The black one seem long and skinny while the saddle where much wider. For reference I’m an 8-9 in Beek. Got the saddle in 81/2 they and wide on my foot but the right length and they don’t slip off the back. Got the same size in the black however they are too long but not as wide. I am returning the black for an 8.

Love at first sight

These are not only well crafted shoes but the leather is like butter. I barely know I have shoes on. I did size down by a half a size like recommended and they fit perfectly.

Nice but Inconsistent sizing

The good - buttery soft leather and stylish boot. Leather stretches to accommodate my bunions. The bad - Beek shoes have inconsistent sizing. I have 3 pairs of Beeks, all different sizes. I probably should have a 9.5 in this style instead of my usual 10 as the leather has stretched enough that the shoe is too loose. Too late to return them as I’ve worn them outside. Will have to figure out a way to pad them to get them to fit. Otherwise I think they are a great shoe in the right size.

Believe the hype

Unreal. I wore them to work first day out of the box. I put them on at 715 am and did not remove them until 11 pm. No pain, no hot spots, no break in. Ordered 7 1/2 (my usual) first and returned for a 7. It will be my pleasure to buy more.

Love, Love

These shoes are SO comfortable. I love them. They are expensive and they are worth it. Wore them right out of the box with no issues. The leather is soft, molded to my feet, and there are NO seams in the interior of the shoe. It is true that there is no stiffness in the heel. The soles were a little slippery initially but after 1/2 day of scuffing them up the issues were resolved. I bought the black in my actual size since they "run true to size" and they fit perfectly. I wear them barefooted. I do not know how sizing would work for those who want to wear thick socks. I think they would be okay with a very, very thin pair. I originally bought Saddle in 6 before the site said to size down 1/2 size and they were too big. I would love if Saddle came in 5 1/2!
