Top 10 Shoe Searches (part I)

Posted in Fashion, Shoes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 26, 2011 by The Shoe Expert

This is a list of the Top 10 most searched for shoes and shoe-related terms that have led readers to this blog over the past few months:

  1. Flatforms: These shoes and sandals were hot, hot, hot on the runway this year but according to many of my readers and other women polled by other fashion magazines, they are not that popular. Hmm…seems like a little bit of a disconnect to me. If women are searching for these shoes, it seems to me that they must like them. Well, one thing that I know for sure is that the more popular they become, the more they are being produced. Originally, there were only a few runway photos of them out there, but now I see them in more and more magazines and stores…so ladies, I think the flatforms are here to stay for a while. 
  2. Hot shoes for spring 2011: Hello!…This is pretty much what most women who wear fashion shoes wants to know! What is hot right now? What is trending right now? What can I get hot off the press before anyone else, like my girlfriends and co-workers? 🙂 Yes, we want the hottest shoes every season, don’t we? I have definitely included many blog posts on this topic in the past couple of months. (See below for related articles)
  3. Wedges: Not only are they hot, in season, and available just about everywhere right now, but they are also pretty comfortable (in comparison to other types of high heels, of course!). And according to top stylists in LA, the hottest color for the wedge this spring season is a natural wood look, not a dark brown and not a nude. Here is an example:
  4. Steve Madden boots with the red zipper: What can I say? I have these boots. My sister has these boots. I posted them on my facebook fan page as the “Shoe of the Day” once and nobody else seemed to like them…but this boot continually is one of the most searched for shoes EVERY month on my blog! I even mentioned it to the sales team at Steve Madden when I saw them at the Transit Shoe Show in LA in March because I didn’t see the boot in their display. They told me it wasn’t being produced currently, but the black one with the red zipper was…ok…um…people want the tan ones with the red zipper!!! Make them again, Steve  Madden, please! For our readers… 🙂 
  5. Cankles: Well, let’s just hope that readers are searching for this term to try to find out how to avoid getting cankles! Basically, do not wear shoes that are too tight over the top of the foot or at the ankle. Shoes like that will cut off the part of your circulation that circulates blood and fluid back up to the heart (i.e. venous circulation), causing fluid to stay down in the feet and ankles, causing the bulging look of cankles. It’s not a good look. 😦 And it’s not good for your feet or for your circulation. 😦

Stay tuned for Part II with #6-#10. It’s just too long to put in one post!!!

Shoe Lovers: Got brown shoes on today?

Posted in Fashion, Health & Wellness with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 5, 2010 by The Shoe Expert

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.
