SHOES SHOWN: brown booties (one, two, three), sneakers (metallic slip on superga sneakers, vintage nike sneakers, new balance sneakers, ballet flats (metallic, leather, suede), saltwater sandals and avarcas (pons with ankle strap, turks & caicos slingbacks, classic pons), birkenstocks (arizona, florida, milano)
here’s a quick round up of the shoes! not just any shoes, but the shoes i find to be the most comfortable (for me) as summer shows up and it’s finally time to spend the majority of our days back outside in this beautiful city walking miles upon miles upon miles (truly, one of the best things about new york.)
this city kicks my butt on a daily basis and one thing i’ve definitely learned is that i like the city a lot more when my feet don’t hurt. i’m willing to give any shoe a good try, but if i know i’m going to be out all day and walking everywhere, i usually resort to one of these shoes of mine. having great arch support isn’t crucial for me, but i’ve noticed having something securing the back of my ankle truly helps (for example, the first pair of the birkenstock sandals shown, those are the ones i own and love!)
comfortable walking shoes!
brown booties (one, two, three)
i’m the biggest lover of an ankle boot. i wear them year round because i find them so comfortable and i love the look. i think investing in a great pair is worth it, and they last forever if you maintain the heel at your local cobbler.
sneakers (metallic slip on superga sneakers, vintage nike sneakers, new balance sneakers)
i just bought those vintage nike sneakers and i’m embarrassed at how much i love them. mostly because of how much i used to hate them (sneakers) a few years ago. (ps, it’s a unisex size so size down!)
no arch support in these whatsoever, but for years they have never given me issues. i’ve pretty much lived in the same red pair for ten years now and while i look like every other four year old in manhattan (probably the most popular kid shoe around here), i don’t care.
avarcas (pons with ankle strap, turks & caicos slingbacks, classic pons)
i tried a pair of classic pons for the first time last summer and am debating another pair this year. the bright colors are what get me. but also, COMFORT!
birkenstocks (arizona, florida, milano)
i feel like my mom more and more these days, especially since i’ve jumped on the birk wagon, but i don’t think a sandal comes better than these. so much so, i got them for my kids to wear this summer too.
there you have it! start walkin’!
