OK fans, I am headed to the show today in L.A. and want to know what types of shoes you want to see! I’ll try to get some good pics of the latest shoe trends for this fall! 🙂
I know it’s not even spring or summer yet, but the shoe shows are always at least one season ahead of us so that the buyers for the retail stores can see what’s coming out, place orders, and have the shoes in the stores in time for all of us shoppers to buy them!
Here are just a few of the popular sweater boots:
This is a serious new combo that you have to try if you wear UGGs!
Ok, I have to preface this new find with this statement: I was not a huge supporter of UGGs boots in the beginning. They were just not supportive enough for me. I didn’t like how flat the insole was…until now! OMG, my feet are in love with this combo:
UGGs boots with the new Aetrex Lynco L900 Sheepskin Orthotics
It’s like a match made in heaven! I’m not even trying to be funny. The combination of the roomy sheepskin UGGs boots with the Aetrex sheepskin orthotics is like a putting your foot in a warm, fluffy (but supportive) pillow. It’s like when you buy a new mattress that fits you perfectly with just the right amount of support. Ahhh.
And just a reminder that back in September I showed you how far UGGs have come with their stylish new styles, from sandals to flats to clogs to wedge boots to high heel boots and of course the famous classic boots, hiking boots, rain boots, and slippers. Like I said in my last blog, they’re not just oversized slippers anymore!
These are my absolute favorite UGGs boots:
Yeah, I like wedge boots. But I love, love, love my UGGs Classic Boots with my Aetrex Sheepskin Orthotics even more!!! 🙂
Thank you UGGs and Aetrex for doing this to my feet! 🙂
With this cold winter weather, everyone is trying to keep warm. And as a podiatrist, I must add that warm is good! Warm is especially good for people with cold feet, diabetes, circulatory problems, connective tissue disorders, gout, peripheral vascular disease, anemia, and various causes of foot pain. When someone has one of these conditions and their feet get cold, their feet will hurt even more. Of course, there are obvious reasons for keeping our feet warm, like preventing frostbite…So let’s all keep our tootsies warm this winter whether we have any of these conditions or not.
And so with the cold, the shearling boots are trending in stores and in online sales. I’ve been keeping my eye on some of these boots that look warm, comfy, and cute! Tell me what you think. I’m just going to add that I would wear any of these. 🙂
Cole Haan Air Michelle Tall Shearling Boot $278.60 at 6pm
Rockport Gerti Welt Shearling Boots $225 at Macy’s
Maison Martin Margiela Tall Shearling Boots $1,000 at Saks Fifth Avenue
Cabela’s Winterchase Tall Shearling Boots $79.99 at Cabela’s
And just to make this list complete, I’m including two of my furry boots from my own closet:
my furry boots
my furry Skechers boots
They are both warm, comfy, and cute…and both have their special time and place for me to wear them. We can only wear our heels for the right occasion, even if they are boots! As a foot doctor & shoe expert, I know when and where to wear mine. I’ve been known to wear 5″ heels out on the town, but for everyday at the office or for walking out in the cold rainy weather, I wear what works best: comfortable shoes that keep me warm and pain-free. Just a reminder for my shoe lovers! 😉 Keep your feet feeling great!
“All shoes, all the time!”
For several seasons now loafers have been trying to make a comeback on the fashion scene, but they never seem to really pull it off. What do you think? Can loafers ever REALLY make a comeback? They’ve actually come a long way, baby! Of course, there are still the same traditional styles of loafers out there like the penny loafer, but there are now loafers with animal print, wedges, and high heels. Let’s take a look at some of the various styles of loafers on sale this fall…maybe you’ll like them and even wear them!
I actually sell these Aetrex loafers in my office, and my patients love them! They like the fact that they are super comfy and still stylish with the patent leather croc upper.
Here’s another wedge loafer but they’re not as high as the last ones…plus, look at the sole. Although they’re thin soled, the sole still looks like it has the rubber grip and cushion that we’ve seen in a couple of the other loafers. They just might be more comfortable on your feet than they seem at first glance. There are a lot of things to consider when looking at comfort, and most people look first at the heel height. But we also have to look at sole thickness, materials used, shape of the toe box, etc.
This is the first in the series of “My Favorite…”
Since it’s the fall season (hot or not, fall is here!) and since I’m in a love affair with boots, I have decided to post some of my favorite boots from some of my favorite designers…so here we go! Starting it off is…Stuart Weitzman for showing a birthday girl some love! 🙂 Thank you again, Stuart Weitzman!!!
Love the heel! Love the lacing! Love the details!
Um…love everything about this boot!!!
Love the color! Love the cutouts! Love the suede!
Love the clog! Love the color! Love the detail!
Love the animal print! Love the flats! Love the color (not all animal print is created equal)!
So, do you have a favorite Stuart Weitzman boot? I have to admit that my FAVORITE from this list is the OTK black leather flat boots!!! 🙂

It’s the first day of fall, so let’s take a look at some great fall pumps!
My perfect pump for the fall is grey, and it’s high (but remember what I always say as a foot doctor and shoe lover, everything in moderation! Ladies, we can wear our stilettos if it is for a short time, and if we don’t overdo it!)
Whether open toe or closed toe, I love each and every one of these pumps!
Here are some of my top picks for this week:
CLOSED TOE PUMPS:
OPEN TOE PUMPS:
🙂 My picks for this week’s “Pump Day” Wednesday! 🙂
(Just a note about these wonderful, delicious heels: As you can see, you do not have to spend a fortune to look great this fall! There are some great deals out there in every price range. But make sure they fit good and feel great before you leave the store because the last thing you want to do is invest in some beautiful shoes that are too tight and uncomfortable to wear once you get them home!)
