The Soles of Spring: Comfortable and Fun!

Yesterday, I dished about my aging feet here.  It doesn’t have to leave you depressed though, because I am back today with hope!  I’ve done some personal shopping for you with cute and comfortable shoes for this spring. My favorite places to shop for shoes are DSW, Kohl’s, Target and Sole Society.

Aerosoles Wedge Sandal from DSW.  Comes in white, black and red.  These are so comfortable.  I own this black pair.  I love the jute detail and the sole is really cushiony.  I have worn these with skinny and cropped jeans, and a denim pencil skirt.  But, I would not wear these with a maxi and midi skirt because I think they would be too frumpy.  In my opinion, you need a heel for both those types of skirts.

These Vince Camuto mules are chic and would look fab with a midi skirt. From Sole Society, the “Franine” comes in this pretty blue, red and black.

If you want something dressier for a dress or the full skirt, these Kohl’s Apt. 9 sandals are the perfect sandal.  Block heels are on-trend this spring — they are everywhere!  With a 2-inch heel these are just high enough to make your calves look sculpted without making you feel uncomfortable.  A block heel gives you more support, similar to a wedge.  I like the cognac color, but they also come in black, denim (too cute) and white.  I am not a fan of white shoes, unless they are sneakers.

 

These are adorable —  from Target.  Merona low-heel block sandals in four colors — red, taupe, black and blue.  They have a suede-like texture. I wore these the other day with a t-shirt dress and denim jacket.

 

 

Grey for summer — perfect with white jeans!  From DSW, these Steve Madden wedges are just the right height, and wedges are very comfortable because your weight is evenly distributed.

 

Sneakers — my go-to for running errands are Skechers.  I wore pairs similar to these on our vacation to Turkey a few years ago.  My feet were always comfortable.  In fact, most days I wear my Skechers and I find these give my feet the rest they need for when I must wear work shoes.

I also like Chuck Taylor Converse slip-on shoes from Kohl’s.  I have these in white and navy. They are perfect with jeans, shorts, a t-shirt dress and even a pencil skirt.  White sneakers are totally okay to wear especially if you have put a self-tanner on your legs.

And, these Denim Wedges from DSW are worth the risk of spraining my ankle.  Denim shoes are also a hot trend for spring, and the added touch of the embroidery, wow.  These tall wedges make you look like you have legs for days.  Okay, so maybe your leg might be in a cast, but still, your one leg would look hot!

If you go to Pinterest and type in “Block Heel”, you will see so many ideas. Happy shopping!
