So I'm aware, vaguely, of "hot" brands of shoes. There are the ridiculously expensive ones, like Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik, and there are the less expensive but still terribly fashionable ones, like Miss Sixty and Nine West. Got it. Even if I were willing to spend that kind of cash on shoes, though, none of those brands would really work for me--the huge feet limits me quite a bit as far as brand.
So, I'm going to tell you a secret. A brand nobody would associate with cute shoes, that I love.
Seriously. They're a "comfort" line that comes in big sizes, but they make CUTE shoes!
I'll prove it. Some things from the Aerosoles spring line:
The Platform in Green Leather
The Well Wisher in Red Faux Leather
The Raw Hedge in Gray Leather Combo
The Younique in Purple Snake
It's not just this spring, either. I've had my eye on Aerosoles for a while. I love these older styles:
The Benefit in Red Mini Polka
The Prolific in Blue Leather
The Rolling Hills in Blue Green Leather
The best part? These shoes are all under $100, most of them well under, and if my experience is any indication, they'll all be comfortable!
Obviously this style isn't for everyone--if you want a narrow heel, for example, a brand like Aerosoles is probably never going to deliver for you. For me, though, these are a perfect conflation of style, affordability, and availability in my size! Score.
