Vince Camuto product review
I thought the first thing when I decided to branch out a bit into the realm of other shoe brands. I am one of those people that don’t like seeing my own shoe on other people. Yes, I’m a bit of a snob here. The more exclusive the better.
This also tends to showcase in my brand preferences as well and I’m sure there are people out there in the same boat. So, I decided to venture into one of the powerhouse brands out there that usually take over a chunk of a shoe floor. This one being one that usually has a vast selection of women’s shoe options, Vince Camuto.
Vince Camuto Shoes review
They produce men’s shoes? Yes! As a matter of fact they do and it seems there are just as many options for men as there are for women. I did some browsing online and wallah. A Vince Camuto Oxford, Vince Camuto Loafer, Vince Camuto Derby, they make em all in a ton of styles. The one that caught my eye and which I decided to click the purchase button on was a Vince Camuto Oxford, the Tarby. A sleek looking Wholecut Oxford shoe.
Outside to Inside
One of the biggest things I always look at to sort of get a first judging of a shoe brand is the shoe box. It’s usually a good indicator and reflection of the contents within. A well designed out shoe box usually means your chances are pretty good with the shoe as well. The Vince Camuto shoe boxes from the outside are all the same.

Upon opening the box a nice royal blue undertone on the bottom of the lid. An eye catching color and a nice comparison from the deep pink they usually have on the bottom of women’s shoe boxes. To me they put a little thought into it so lets see if the shoe is just as eye catching. Wholecut Oxford? I hope so.
First Glimpse of the Vince Camuto Tarby
First hands one experience with the Vince Camuto Tarby was very good. The leather felt super soft and seemed like it would be very comfortable right off the bat. Usually the softer the leather the easier the creasing will show. (Just get some shoe trees). This will definitely happen right off the bat, but the leather quality was worth it. The Vince Camuto Oxford looked very well designed from the outside and had a very nicely curved silhouette.
You can always tell right away if the toe box of a shoe is what you’re looking for and this was one. The top edge of the lining was also very soft and didn’t seem like it would cut into your heel.
After being content with the upper of the shoe I flipped it over to see the story of the sole. Rubber soles for dress shoes usually indicate a lower-end dress shoe. Higher quality dress shoes usually contain a leather sole or a mix of materials. However, the Vince Camuto Oxford seemed to be a cross with a rubber bottom covering most the bottom sole and some little nail studs tapped on throughout the sole.
These were located at the very front end of the toe box and sides of the base heel. Most likely for the decorative appearance, but possibly for some functional sturdiness on the bottom. The stacked heel was a half rubber and half leather bottom. There was not a gentleman’s corner cut into the heel which isn’t really a big factor. I thought the sole was nicely done with the cross mix of materials which seemed to elevate the quality of the shoe.
So How Comfortable?
Slipping on the fellas was pretty smooth. The shoe felt comfortable and as mentioned before, the soft leather was an instant comfort. I really liked the toe box cut and think this played a very big role in the overall comfort fit of the shoe.
If you’re looking for a lower price point shoe that still exudes some sense of durability then I think the Vince Camuto Tarby is a great option. If the wholecut look is a little too simple then check out some other Vince Camuto Oxford options on their website. Otherwise, if you’re open to Monkstraps check out my Jared Lang Monkstrap Review!
Vince Camuto handbags review
The Vince Camuto Riley Tote is made of genuine bubble lamb leather which is a buttery soft shrunken sheepskin leather that makes for a beautiful unstructured tote. It has an adjustable shoulder strap which is removable if you don’t want to wear this bag as a cross body bag, two top handles for use as a shoulder or elbow bag and it is secured with a top zippered closure. It has a zipper on either side for adjusting the size of the bag.
The inner lining is made of polyester and it features one media pocket, one slip pocket, one zippered pocket and pen loop, all on the inside of the bag. It is big enough to hold all your everyday essentials like your cell phone, makeup, keys, etc. and can even accommodate a small tablet or iPad.
This medium sized tote bag comes in a variety of exciting colors that are easy to match to any outfit, including Raven/Black, Chai Latte, Chestnut Brown, Elephant, Fig Jam, Golden Brown, Indigo and Vintage Brass, silver, Nero, and Madera. Please note that the Riley tote comes in three different shades of black, the Raven/Black bag is a glossy black with a weave texture while the Nero Black is a more matte finish that resembles snakeskin.
There is also the Madera Black which is another matte black with more of a greyish tint to it. Sellers of the Riley Tote on Amazon.com do not differentiate between these three hues and a buyer might think she is ordering the Raven and be disappointed when she gets the Nero or Madera. As with all online shopping, it is prudent to take the time out and meticulously research your item to ensure that you are purchasing the right thing.
The Riley Tote from Vince Camuto is perfect for work or church. It has an aura of sophisticated elegance which is very chic and its soft leather material makes it very durable. Leather is a natural material so it is imperative that one takes very good care to avoid scratching and or scuffing this tote bag. If you must clean it then use a soft damp cloth and avoid too much moisture.
The Vince Camuto Riley Tote Bag is a sophisticated medium sized tote bag perfect for work or for church. This will make a great addition to any wardrobe.
