To say a shoe is popular doesn’t even come close to describing the demand that direct-to-consumer brand M.Gemi has seen for one of its most comfortable slip-on styles.

Since launching in 2015, the Felize shoe has consistently sold out after each drop. But in 2018 alone its waitlist reached over 36,000 people — the population of a small village — making it the brand’s most demanded shoe of the year. And we can see why.

What’s more shocking to us is the fact that this style is actually on sale right now. Seriously — M.Gemi just cut the price from $198 to only $165, so we’re getting one in each color. The catch, though, is that colors are selling out alarmingly fast — at time of writing, only the Canary, Pine, and Mulberry versions have near-to-complete size runs. Thankfully, we adore all three, so it's hardly a compromise.

This driving shoe is basically the perfect footwear for traveling. The suede, leather, and calf hair exteriors are designed for the ultimate ease of sliding in and out of each pair (at airport security, perhaps), while the arches and interior padding mold to your feet and make these actually enjoyable for wearing morning to night. Whether you’re driving, walking, or sprinting to catch a flight, the rubber pegs on the soles provide unimpeachable grip.

Expertly hand-sewn in Tuscany, these slip-ons are more than just practical, they’re a legitimate luxury product. The 797 reviewers who gave these an average of 4.6 stars would probably agree with that assessment.

This sale only lasts through April 8, so you should act fast if you want to get a pair before they go back to full price, or worse, sell out completely.
