Stylish But Comfortable Shoes For Spring and Summer

I started at our local Dillard’s.  When the saleslady in the shoe department asked, “May I help you?”  She didn’t know what was about to happen.  Poor thing!  I must have had her bring out thirty boxes of shoes and then sent a lot back for a different size.

I got the feeling she wanted to take back her offer to help me.

Through the search,  I found that there are a lot of companies on the market these days catering to those of us seeking comfort and style.  Let me share with you some I found…

 

From left to right, top to bottom:

  1.  Sole Society’s Audrina.  I wore these all last spring, even walking all over New Orleans, all summer, and into the fall.  I just had to order another pair this season.  They are amazing!  They come in four colors, too!
  2. Born’s Tamara comes in NINE colors!!! These would be great for that athleisure look or with just jeans, a tee and a trench!
  3. Ugg’s Cass Slip-on.  Great paired with anything… a floral dress, track pants, jeans, shorts, etc.
  4. Vionic’s Blakely Suede and Natural Snake Booties.  I bought these in grey (seen above) but love these snakeskin ones even better.  I didn’t see this option.  I wore these all day today at school and was very comfortable all day.  They even allow my bunions to do their thing.  Plus,  they are on SALE!!
  5. Birkenstock’s Gizeh Waterproof Essentials Thong Sandals.  These come in four colors.  Great for the pool or beach!
  6. Donald J. Pliner Cava Suede Stud Detail Slides.  These come in white or black.  These would pair well with shorts or cropped white jeans!
  7. Naturalizer’s Mason Print Block Heel Dress Slide.  These come in six colors and are sooo comfy.  These would make a midi dress stand out! Or, even wide-leg pants!
  8. Steve Madden’s Kirsten Leather Platform Sandal.  Our speech teacher swears by these.  She wears these with cute a-line swing dresses.  So cute! They come in three colors.
  9. Volatile’s Microsuede Leopard Print Sneakers.  How cute are these AND COMFORTABLE!!  I can see these definitely with some distressed jeans and a printed tee.  Or, even a solid-colored dress to dress it down.
  10. FitFlop’s Sola Iridescent Slides.  Just a good, basic neutral slide to go with everything.
  11. Naturalizer’s Billie Alabaster. Comes in three colors.  Another great basic to have.  I can see these with a casual jumpsuit or a short dress.
  12. ONO’s Ebba Sandal.  Comes in five colors.  Great for dressing up any outfit!
  13. I bought these by Softt for everyday.
  14. I would love a pair of these by Ugg  for the pool, eventually!  Which color do I choose?

 

Do you have some favorite comfy/stylish shoes you would like to share with us?

I hear those beach waves crashing now!

Toodle-oo,

Melanie
