More often than not, I’m wearing flats & just like my high heels, they’d better be comfortable! Now, boat shoes have been all the rage this season when it comes to casual footwear, but I haven’t been the biggest fan until I spotted these sand-coloured canvas & leopard print shoes from LAMO Footwear, called “Cruiser“.
Now I have a history with this brand, reviewing these thong sandals & these red, beaded mocassins & all styles, including these leopard print boat shoes, are nothing short of extremely comfortable! Which comes as no surprise, really, as they do specialize in slippers & comfy boots. These particular leopard boat shoes have a great, cushy insole, steady rubber outsole & the unexpected vibrant leopard print just gives what is usually a dull-looking dowdy shoe, a bit of pizazz. Which, let’s face it, is what most shoeaholics look for when shopping for a new pair of shoes! These leopard print flats also come in a dark canvas/leopard combo & plain ‘ol canvas (for the more faint-of-heart). Perfect to pair with yellow-gold accessories, denim & neutral tones. Or all black. But that wouldn’t be very summer 2014 now would it?!
Yes, call me crazy, but I find this mule/boot with its incredibly tall shaft highly appealing. Leave it to Alexander Wang to make any shoe or fashion product “cool”, no matter how preposterous the design.
Hold on a second.
I must exempt from my previous statement the atrocities that I blogged about here & here, for which I have yet to & will likely never, EVER forgive him.
If you follow @ShoeTease on Instagram, you know that I’m an overly enthusiastic Winners shopper. I love the scour the racks of discounted brand & designer merch for that special find, sans pesky sales folk hovering around. That being said, there are many people who absolutely abhor this type of store & would prefer a curated little shop where they can whisk in & out of in the span of 15 minutes. I presume these are the people who dislike perusing vintage stores & shopping at Joe Fresh.
I’m quite open about my little shoe “problem” & in addition to my Gap denim addiction (which I’ve talked about here), I have a thing for Winners shoes. That’s where I found my latest pair of sneakers. Brand: Bucketfeet. Ever heard of them? Don’t worry; neither had I.
Let’s talk about nude heels (& eventually the most comfortable high heels in that shade) shall we? Nude shoes are a closet essential, packed full of fashion benefits! I mean, what do these shoes not work with, really?! From boardroom attire, casual ensembles & even a cocktail party or two, nude heels will generally work with any clothing, season & place (and not to mention, a refreshing change from boring ‘ol black)! However, choosing the right shade of what will surely be your most versatile shoe, is possibly the most important aspect for when you’re shopping around for a pair of nude heels.
