Today is National Wear Brown Shoes Day!
Who comes up with these days anyway? I don’t know, but on the list of national days this year, there it is…December 4th, National Wear Brown Shoes Day! So in honor of this day, I have looked into my closet to determine which brown shoes to wear. Of course (as I always say), it all depends on what I plan to do today. This is what I have come up with so far:
My Donald J Pliner brown suede open toe ankle booties that I got for Valentines Day (thanks, babe!): These high heels (they don’t look too high in this photo, but they are a good 4 inches!) could really only work for a dinner party, dinner date, drinks with the girls, or some other type of night on the town. Not for shopping at the mall. No way! But I love these shoes, and wore them last time to a fancy breakfast at a country club.
My Bongo brown argyle pumps from Kohl’s: These heels (believe it or not!) are actually very comfortable. The heel is about 3 inches, and the toe box is very rounded so the toes don’t get all squished and painful. I have even worn these to a medical conference once for over 12 hours where I did a lot of walking and standing throughout the day, and my feet felt great! They’re also very cute, and every time I wear them I get tons of compliments from other women. 🙂
My brown Kuru’s: These shoes are kind of like a mix between an athletic shoe and a loafer, and they are designed to be outdoor shoes. I have to admit I wear them inside too. 🙂 They are great for work, but since I usually wear my scrubs in the office all day, I usually wear my running shoes, Kuru’s, Skechers, or Crocs. I know that some of you don’t have that luxury because you have to dress up for work…sorry, girls! But for those of you who can wear athletic style shoes to work, give these a try! As a foot specialist, I definitely recommend them to you and to my patients!
Here is a little more information on Kuru’s from the company itself: Kuru shoes are built on the World’s Most Anatomical Midsole for active footwear. This patent-pending technology is the most ergonomic and anatomically correct active midsole available. Designed to perform under all conditions, this technology will enhance any active pursuit. Whether you’re traveling, walking, hiking, or casually strolling across town, Kuru will take you there.
And here is another recommendation from another blogger, mom, and nurse, Sarah from Minnesota-Mama-Must-Haves who describes how comfortable these shoes really are!
My red zipper, tall leather boots by Steve Madden: OK, so they are light brown (or maybe tan), but close enough! I love these flat boots. They’re casual, comfy, and pretty stylish if I do say so myself. I actually have to give my sis, fashion designer and stylist, Jen Summers credit for this find because she turned me on to these puppies! (thanks, Jen!) These boots can handle just about anything except for running or working out, I think. They really are perfect for a day of shopping, going to the Christmas parade, or even out at night…with the right outfit, of course!
My furry Skechers boots: I know I have featured these before in another blog, but I couldn’t leave these out of Wear Brown Shoes Day! Warm, cozy, comfy, and warm. That pretty much sums up these boots. I wore them camping once or twice, and I may have been the only one around the campfire not complaining about cold feet and ankles! 🙂 I wouldn’t wear them out on a date, unless we were doing a REALLY casual dinner and a movie or something like that, but they work great for daytime activities in this chilly weather.
That’s about it for MY brown shoes, except for some strappy shoes that I left out due to the weather. 🙂 So, did you wear brown shoes today? If you did, I want to see them. Post a pic or make a comment below.
