Fall shoes I wore without falling! (Giveaway)CONTESTS, REVIEWS & CONTESTS | Nirasha Jaganath | October 9, 2012 at 8:16 pm
I don’t do heels. Or rather they don’t do me. I would honestly love to wear heels! I mean, if you were 5’0 feet wouldn’t you want to wear them too? Someone I manage to fall on my face when I attempt to friend them. Literally! It is not funny and I have no idea how I traversed my teenage years without mastering them. Oh yeah, I was a nerd!
But I am not willing to give up on what could be a fabulous relationship. I was wondering though whether you can teach an old blogger new tricks. I was offered to take a pair of Earth Footwear from their fall collection. Honestly I could have taken any of those shoes in the selection and been content with it. I narrowed my choice between 2 shoes. A pretty but practical pair of Mary Janes was in the running. I knew it would get good use and it was the cutest shade of red. I also knew it was a typical me pair of shoes. Not that “me” was bad but as I constantly mention in my posts, I use my blog as an excuse to evolve and attempt challenges. The other pair was fighting for attention was a lovely wedge type shoe called Spindrift. It was a sexy pair.
With a wedge, I thought I could get away with gaining the height without having to kiss the ground. Like every pair of Earth shoes, these are amazingly soft and comfortable inside. I am one of those who will never sacrifice comfort for style and thankfully I never have to with this pair. The height it gives me is enough for it to be pretty noticeable and admittedly I liked the feeling. The fact that they attach with velcro is a winner since, except for sneakers, I pretty much swore off all shoes with buckles. Not only does it mean the fit is adjustable, it looks smooth without displaying the regular holes or worn-out strap as it gets more used.
Another fabulous thing about the shoes (are you tired and jealous already?) is the closed toes. I barely paint my toenails (read never) and pedicures is something I pine for (except I am deathly ticklish, but I gladly endure) and while I think peep-hole sandals look great, they won’t grace my feet often (if ever). I can put on these sexy shoes on my feet when they are the Boston-winter ugliest and they still make me look fabulous. Of course the height helps too!
Now, before you unsubscribe, I have something for you too!
