We are Southern Gals and really, we care what we look like! But, truth be told, we all like our feet to be comfortable. Especially with this jungle heat that has smothered us. Remember Melanie Griffith in Working Girl? Socks and tennies to work, change to heels upon getting there. It looked bad, but we all got it. She had blocks to walk and what else was she going to do?
Working Girl came out in 1988. It’s been 21 years and shoes have come a long way. There is no excuse for the sneaker swoop with your Nashville or Vacay outfit. Options to consider: Geox (ShopGeox.com). Billed as the “shoe that breathes”, this company creates the chic and the comfy. A quick search of Zappos finds 5 star reveiws across the board. In Nashville, you need to order these online. (If someone knows where to buy these locally, please comment!)
Surely you have tried the Cole Haan with Nike technology (ColeHaan.com). Heels and flats alike. Dressy and casual. Worth the money full price if you have feet like mine that get angry easily! They are stylish shoes that feel like a sneaker. Online, all shoes are 20% at the Cole Haan site. While the Cole Haan store at the Green Hills Mall does not have this offer, they will honor it if you mention the online sale!
When I travel, I walk walk walk and walk some more. My next splurge for all that walking will be the Gizeh by Birkenstock (Birkenstock.com). You can find these at the 2525 Building where PF Changs Nashville is.
Lastly, an option for around town errands and summer exercise out of the gym, the Fit Flop. Now, I’m not sure these give you the great legs and extra lift they advertise, but they are dang comfy and seem to do wonders for a tired back. Please leave them in your closet after 5 p.m.:-)
Here’s to your feet staying stylishly happy!
