I'm a teacher and mom. I'm on my feet a lot. I also have arthritis in my feet and knees. I need lots of support and cushion, but I still want to look cute and not destroy a great outfit with grandma shoes. I have scoured the planet for shoes that are both stylish and comfortable and let me tell you, they are HARD to come by. It's a terrible shame really. I need to start my own line- but that's for another day. Anyhoo, I was able to come up with these three incredible winners that I now own and completely love. I would not have included them if I could not wear them for 8+ hours.
Yes, I had a spray tan in the first pic and no spray tan in the second pic- man, I'm pale, focus on the shoes. These are called Cloud Steppers by Clarks. Oh. My. Stars. Ya'll. They make me want to praise Jesus for this gift! They are truly fantastic. I got a 6.5 wide- I love a wide shoe because I hate nothing more than the toe squeeze. These have great toe room, soft sole (hence the cloud stepper name), great support and adjustable, barely noticeable velcro heel straps. My mom and sister both got them too- we are all obsessed. You can find them here.
Going out on a date? To a wedding? Office Party? Girls night out? Have no fear- you can be comfy all night, literally for hours in these and they are BEAUTIFUL. The little stones on them are so intricate and pretty! I get so many compliments. Plus you can dance all night! I have paired them with my dressy romper here- great combo! You can find them here.
I never thought I'd be wearing shoes by the brand grasshoppers, (sounds so...elderly) but you guys, they are so dang cute and comfortable for hours on your feet -they kept me hoppin'. They look awesome with a dress, romper, skirt, as well as skinny jeans and even the new wide-leg trousers. They are supportive and the foot beds are so soft with an adjustable velcro ankle strap, and the strap is low enough so that it doesn't make your ankles look fat. Don't mind if I do. You can find them here.
