So many people are asking for advice this month (thanks to the long overdue warm weather) on finding stylish shoes for summer that are also comfortable. As women, I think that’s one of the most common questions we ask throughout our whole lives, don’t you?
We all want to look our best – which often means shoes with a heel, especially for special occasions. But at the same time, we know that we won’t truly look our best when our feet are killing us and preventing us from being as active as we want. We’ve all been there right? Sitting at our table near midnight at a friend’s wedding because if we get out on the dance floor one more time, our toes might fall off. Or cutting a day at the theme park short because we just can’t walk another step without screaming.
With summer travel plans, sightseeing, weddings and BBQs on the agenda, we’re here to help you find some amazing shoe options that are, indeed, both comfortable AND stylish!
Our Top Pick for Summer Shoes has to be the WEDGE.
The wedge heel provides a comfort and stability that is almost on par with a flat shoe, but with the added benefits of height, leg-elongating visuals, and the formality of a high heel. They’re perfect for a backyard barbecue (no heels sinking into the grass), a day of sightseeing (whether its Paris or Niagara Falls) and many are perfectly dressy enough for a wedding or special occasion. Here are some of our favourite wedges of the season – all available at our boutique on Pearl Street. Click on any image to launch the larger gallery:
Other great choices include embellished gladiator-style sandals in trendy colours like mint green or classic go-with-anything black or tan tones. We have some excellent options from Steve Madden and Guess in stock this year.
One of our favourite lines, Sofft, also makes a great line of slip on heels that come very close to being as comfortable as your favourite running shoes. They have to be tried-on to be believed! We love the white option, as white is (as you likely know) so hard to find in a flattering heel. This one is so comfortable and the gold accents make it even better!
Come on by and let us help you find a way to pick out gorgeous summer shoes that are as stylish as they are comfortable!
