SheFinds Guilty Pleasure: Comfortable Shoes
January 30, 2008
I know you've heard it before: “No pain, no gain.” But I’ve got news for you, oh long-suffering sisters – when it comes to footwear, this stoic saying no longer holds. Welcome to the 21st century, when comfortable shoes have officially gone good-looking.
Aerosoles, once known for their dumpy loafers and dubious heels, is now a brand well worth wearing. Their wide selection of shoes are almost universally stylish and all come with a comfort guarantee. Last summer, I got endless compliments on my Aerosoles wedge sandles, which not only served me well at work but also carried me blister-free through an aimless one-hour wander in the park when I couldn’t find my picnic sight. Can your heels do that? I was so happy with their warm weather shoes that I checked out Aerosoles' winter selection, and it turns out they have amazing boots. My favorite: a tie between the Tint Cess style in dark brown leather (was $180, now $99.99) and the Pull Through Flat (was $180, now $99.99).
And like lots of items at Aerosoles right now, they’re both on sale! The curvy lines and antique buckle detail of the Tint Cess modernize this casual classic, and the pull through represents an expert combination of elegant simplicity and bold color. With looks like these, no one would ever suspect that the interior–distinguished by an extra-cushioned footbed and breathable leather–could keep your tootsies so comfy. But if you’re thinking to yourself, "How hard is it to make flats comfortable?", consider the Vice Cold Wedge – the 3” heels of these snappy ankle boots feel like cotton candy.
By now you’re probably thinking, “Cute, comfortable, and affordable—why hasn’t anyone told me before?!?!” Well, SheFinds is telling you now. But let’s keep this guilty little pleasure a secret, shall we? Not everyone needs to know that comfort can look so great.
