I am a believer in shoes with personality. After years in the corporate world, wearing mid-height black pumps, I adore shoes that have flair. And, as age is making all the parts ache more, I insist on super-comfortable shoes. It’s so gratifying that comfortable shoes are, like us baby boomers, making a big impression.
Today we’ve got loads of “comfort” brands that include styles beyond what our mothers could have imagined. Clarks, Gentle Souls, Rockport, Born, Earthies, Jambu, Naot, Vionic, Taos, Sofft, Naturalizer, and more, in mostly affordable price ranges. Here are my picks for smart, stylish shoes for the upcoming warm weather; I hope you’ll see something that tickles your feet:
Go with a lush print. Naturalizer is not an old-lady brand. They’ve got some fresh looks, like these floral brocade flats that will add joy to your Spring/Summer looks. Great arch support too; that’s so important with flats.
Choose an unexpected color, and wear it with everything. I love it that shoes have become more colorful in recent years. If you don’t have to dress too formally, these low-wedge strap sandals are perfect for work. They have an “anatomically molded footbed”, which sounds a little frightening, but it’s super comfortable.
The classics, re-imagined with comfort. If you need to/like to wear the timeless black heel, there are modern and comfortable options. Loving the stacked heel and mini platform on this Comfortiva pair. And for feeling good all day: a memory foam footbed with mesh-lined cover.
A wedge sandal in a subtle print is a great neutral. You can get height without pain with these ankle-wrap 2.75″ wedges. The insole has deep cushioning. Lots of color choices too.
Back to basics, but in living color. I love sneakers! When I’m not posing for anything, I wear them almost daily. These low-profile slip-ons have a removable footbed with flexible arch support. They come in a dozen colors, including this sassy red.
Stay fabulous, keep those feet happy, and see you at the new “Easy does it” Visible Monday,
