I love shoes so much.  I really do.  More than the next gal.  One reason I love shoes is that no matter how many Hershey's Kisses I pack away while I write this blog post (I'm already on #5), my shoes will still fit tomorrow.  And if I decide to wear a super-comfortable, not at all noteworthy outfit, I can choose a great pair of shoes to add a little excitement.  Booties!  The mere mention of the word on this 2nd day of Fall makes me smile.

Having said all of that, my feet are not my most glamorous asset.  I've been a runner for a long time.  I have calluses and bunions and injured toenails.  The older I get, the louder my feet tell me to take it easy on them.  So, I understand when my clients--especially those with foot problems or jobs that keep them on their feet all day--tell me that they need a really comfortable, supportive, shoe.  As a stylist who appreciates the value of a great looking shoe to complete an ensemble, it is my responsibility to let you know that truly comfortable shoes do not have to look like Granny's old orthopedic sandals!  (Side note: They also don't have to be Dansko clogs.  Just sayin'.)


Some of the trusty comfort brands you've steered clear of for years are making shoes that are, dare I say, cute!  Naturalizer, Clarks, Aerosoles, Dr. Scholl's...cute.

Aerosoles 'You Betcha'

Clarks 'Delsie Stella'

New-to-me brands like Gentle Souls, Earthies, and Arche...really quite cute.

Arche 'Exyna'

Earthies 'Spiceberry'

Gentle Souls 'Pod Pie' (!!!)

And don't forget good ol' Birkenstocks.  For better or worse, they are trending, and there's no denying they are comfortable.  

Birkenstocks 'Arizona'

There are no stilettos in this round-up, but I only wear those for special more than a couple of hours at a time.  For everyday shoes, these are really do-able...and fashionable, don't you think?  What do you look for when choosing everyday shoes?  Let me know in the comments!

As a personal stylist in Richmond, VA, I strive to make wardrobe choices clear and easy for women who are short on time, overwhelmed by their closets, or transitioning from one period of life to another.  Let's connect!

  3. I adore wearing loose lively trousers since they are agreeable and suit in each kind of game, aside from Yoga. I wore them with the two-conditioned sleeveless top, and the most loved Clarks shoes. It was chilly (clearly it's Winter) yet either working out indoor or open air was still vital for my wellbeing.
