Comfy Flats from Johnston & Murphy!

Posted in Fashion, Health & Wellness, Shoes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 16, 2011 by The Shoe Expert

Comfy is the name of the game today!!! Actually, super comfy!

As a lover and expert of shoes, I always stress that there is a time and place for every type of shoe. Flip flops for the beach, hiking boots for camping, sparkly heels for NYE celebrations, and flats for long work days or running errands, right?

Well when it comes to flats, the Claire Studded Penny Drivers from Johnston & Murphy are one of the most comfortable ones I’ve tried on, tested, and worn for an 8-hour work day!

 

I have the red ones as shown above, but they come in other colors such as black, brown, tan, beige, and navy as well. The leather is so soft, and a thin orthotic will fit comfortably in this shoe if you wear one like I do.

For more information on this shoe, click here and use this promo code until June 30th at checkout for a discount especially for my blog readers and followers: CALSHOE

Thanks to the folks at Johnston & Murphy for allowing me to review your shoes! 🙂

Saturday’s Shoe of the Day: Jessica Simpson ‘Cheetah’ Pumps

Jessica Simpson 'Cheetah' pump side view

I can tell you from personal experience in Nordstrom today that this shoe is not only beautiful but also comfortable for a 4″ heel. I usually don’t wear closed toe pumps because my toes feel crowded in the narrow toe box that typically are seen in pumps, but this shoe has a nice rounded roomy toe box which did not crowd my toes at all! Also, the cushioned insole along with the elasticized strap across the midfoot add extra comfort, which we can all appreciate in a pump. I mean, if we’re going to wear a high heel, any extra comfort is much appreciated!

I am giving this pump two thumbs up, one for comfort and one for style! 🙂

And I’m giving the salespeople at Nordstrom two thumbs up too, one for being so attentive and one for having such a great attitude! 🙂

By the way, if you want this shoe, you can find it at Nordstrom for under $100.00!

Here are just a few more views of the ‘Cheetah’ pump:

Shoe Lovers: Are You Wearing Your Red Christmas Shoes Today?

Posted in Fashion, Shoes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 25, 2010 by The Shoe Expert

Coming Soon: John Galliano Spring 2011 Collection

In honor of Christmas, I am sporting my brand new Shane and Shawn KK red python peep toe pumps from Endless.com! 🙂

Here are some examples of really red shoes to show some Christmas spirit today!

So whether you’re just going to mom and dad’s house for dinner or going to a glitzy holiday party, you can still arrive in style! This is one of those occasions where you can wear your super high to the sky stilettos if you want to because you won’t be standing in long lines or walking for blocks! Most likely, you’ll walk from your front door to your car, then your car into someone’s home, then do a lot of sitting while eating, drinking, and socializing…unless you’re the one cooking the big meal…in that case, wear your flats while cooking and save your heels until the cooking is done and you’re ready to sit and mingle with your family and other guests!

Happy Holidays, shoe lovers!!!
