Recommended for that or no? I want some cute shoes, but also comfortable! Thanks!

There have been many blog posts that have prompted me to go directly out and purchase an item. And I’m never disappointed if I trusted the blogger and knew we had similar taste. I love finding new favorites like this.

I love a flat sandal too, Alyssa.

I’m going to check out the Aurora Shoe Co. Thanks for the tip!

Thanks for the note. Honestly, six pairs didn’t sound like all that many to me since so many women I know buy at least that many pairs. But shoes wear out SUPER quickly in NYC from all the walking and the cobblestone streets. My husband’s shoes…I need to catalog just how many fine leather shoes we’ve taken to the cobbler over the last five years. It’s pretty amazing to see the wear.

Yes, I used to have SO many shoes too but then we moved across the country and I got rid of 75% of everything I owned period. I own far fewer clothes now too. It’s amazing how much I had vs. I really needed (and actually wore!).

Thanks for the compliments! Ditto. I’m always in awe of your posts.

Isn’t it interesting how a simple daily belonging like a pair of shoes could have such stories behind them?

I used to own dozens and dozens of shoes, but when we lived in NY we didn’t have room for all of them, so I slowly let them all wear out and now I’m down to only a few pair! I NEED THESE! I’m totally checking out the stores where they are available when I’m in Seattle in August. Woohoo! I’m so glad you wrote about these! I’m definitely in love too!

(Your posts are the BEST Kose!)

Judging by me and my friends, it’s more like 10 or 12. It rains a lot in France, which ruins shoes, we walk a lot, and summer doesn’t last long but we still buy sandals!!

I think clogs are my best friends as a mom. I just sleep them in and go, and it’s the best thing ever when carrying a baby in a sling! My boy is 6 now, but I just splurged in some high heeled Swedish Hasbeen clogs in a perfect red brown color, wearing them as often as possible to “make” them. I can’t wait for them to be as comfy as my other pair of clogs, because they are widely more chic. It’s amazing how chic shoes can push an outfit from blah to amazing!

Bought a pair (my then boyfriend laughed at me for spending $95 on one pair of shoes because I buy a lot of shoes). I wore them basically year round except when it was snowing, with slacks, jeans or shorts (and admittedly probably a skirt every once in a while too) and the soles NEVER showed any wear. He became my fiancé, then my husband, then I had a baby and then another one, and I never stopped loving them.
The bungee wore out once and I was crushed – until Keen replaced them for me for free.

I could only afford the Swedish Hasbeens for H&M collection they did a couple of years ago but I’ve worn hat pair to death and they’re falling apart at an alarming rate. It’s time to start saving for my next pair, but which one? They’re all SO pretty!

I have a fetish. And it’s a problem. I just posted about my favorite espadrille company last week:
http://www.alavendersea.com/2013/06/18/naguisa-espadrilles/

I’ve been dreaming about owning a pair of red Hasbeens but well, due to my splurge on Spanish shoes, my pockets are currently empty! Haha
And you’re so right about pinterest!! My shoe board on pinterest receives a lot of attention these days.

There is truly nothing like full grain leather shoes – they actually form around the contours of your feet and create a custom fit which is just about as comfortable as it gets.

I’ve always liked the look of the Hasbeens, but rarely find an excuse to wear heels. I wonder – do they make a sandal sans heel?

Once upon a time my husband bought me perfect navy and white Cole Haan saddle shoes but alas, they were a little small and I had to return them. But I’ve heard the Nike air technology in the soles is amazing.
