Shoe comfort becomes an issue when you fit into the follow groups;
1. You walk your dogs.
2. You have children that you chase.
3. You live in a City where you spend a lot of time on your feet.. walking.
Heaven help you if you (like me) fit in all three categories. Pre-babies and dogs I was one of those girls who would walk all day long in sky high heels, wedges, and platforms without a care in the world. Whenever I’d put on flats, I’d find them incredibly uncomfortable! But now I’m a grown Mama who has discovered the joy of a padded foot bed, and I leave the Louboutins to the socialites who have chauffeurs to shuffle them about (or save them – or in our case the sky high Stella’s – for special occasions) and acquiesce to comfort cool.
You think all those hipsters wear holey jeans and rocker tee shirts just because they look cool? Nope.. comfort first. Which is essentially the essence of cool, being totally happy in your very own weird – not too mussed – with skin. This isn’t a sociology lesson though, this is our list of the most walker friendly spring/summer shoes on our radar. And.. hello.. do you think we’d put you in ridiculous chunky earth shoes? These are all amazing looking on. My initial instincts about flats were right, they aren’t all walking comfy.. but these really are. GGA tested and approved!
