Recently I came to a sad realization that my high heel days are going to be over very soon – in a little over a month, to be exact! The reason is that we will be living in the Big City, and my “commute” to work will consist of a 12-block walk. Comfortable shoes are a must, and flats or shoes with small heels will do the trick. Shoes are the one thing for which I don’t mind paying a little more – it is important to me to keep my feet happy and healthy, and I found out first hand that you get what you pay for with shoes. I buy classic styles that last me a good while – I still wear shoes I bought in 2003!
I usually buy most of my shoes at DSW at unbelievable prices! While I was surprised to find out that you can now shop at DSW online, I didn’t see anything that I had to have. Besides, there are a lot of brands with which I am unfamiliar, and I prefer to see those in person.
Searching for new items to add to my wish list I headed to Nine West, one of my favorites for well-made shoes at reasonable prices. There I found these adorable Noadiah flat shoes in silver, $79. I love the accent in the front! I have no silver shoes (I can just see Husband reading this and going, “Impossible! You must have something in silver; you have so many shoes!”) I found these cute Linea Paolo 'Fallyn' Flats at Nordstrom, another favorite of mine. They are a little pricey at $99.95, but it’s hard to find good shoes in white, so if you’re desperate and if you can make shoes last multiple seasons like I can, then it’s worth it.
These classic Biala 'Raggio' Flats, $74.90, are also available at Nordstrom.
