Last week my husband and I went out for a little Sunday shopping to pick up a few things. We hadn’t done any ‘fun’ shopping in a while. Since he wanted a few new hats and I wanted new shoes we hopped the train and headed north to the mall. It was hot (like crazy hot!) so I threw on my favorite sundress, tied up my hair, and slipped on my heels to go.
As soon as I put my heels on I just knew I was going to regret it. Friday night when I got home from work my feet hurt from commuting in heels all week so I was looking forward to being barefoot at home or in flats all weekend but I suddenly realized something – I did not own a single pair of flats. I mean, I owned one pair of sneakers but I didn’t own any actual flats.
Obviously I knew what kind of shoes I was going to buying.
When we finally found the Steve Madden store I pleaded with the salesclerk, “Please…bring me flats. I need neutral flats. I need something that won’t kill my feet. I need something I can commute in without hurting.” She just smiled and disappeared behind the curtain.
She brought me these and said, “I have them in black. I can swear to their comfort.”
I took off my heels, slipped them on, and instantly felt like I was walking on cloud 9. I ran over to my husband and showed him. He smiled and just said, “They look comfortable.” I know what that meant, “You know I hate flats but you’re smiling so if you like them then just buy them.” So buy them I did. They are amazing.
I didn’t wear them home (although I was sorely tempted to wear them home) but the moment I got home I kicked my heels off into the closet and immediately put them on my feet. Don’t they look comfortable?!
Ladies, I love them! I wore them to take my dogs out to do their business and I wore them to go down and check our mailbox. They felt so good on my feet! I immediately decided that I would be wearing them to work all week long. Sure, I’m only 5’2″ and yes I wear heels to make myself look taller but eventually I just have to accept that it can not be done every single day.
I told my husband I’ll be going back to the mall soon to pick up a few more pair of flats. Steve Madden had a super cute pair of white sandals I had my eye on too.
And, did you know that when you shop in the Steve Madden store that you’re given a reusable bag instead of a plastic bag? It was a surprise to me but I loved it! I normally do my shopping online so I’ve never noticed. Maybe it’s old news but it was news to me.
Check out my new shoes on Steve Madden!
