I think I need to get out more because I’ve been forgetting to turn on my verbal censor lately, perhaps due to the fact that my coworker of the past seven years is a cat.
At Nordstrom earlier today for that sale I mentioned I tried on a pair of Sam Edelman Dana sandals (originally $99.95, marked down to $59.90), and when I took them out of the box and slipped them onto my feet, I said, “Sooo soft!” much too loudly, and to no one in particular.
There was a lady next to me trying on shoes who looked over and started laughing.
“I’m so sorry,” I said. “I think I must be overcome with shoe ecstasy or something. HAHA!”
I usually stay away from shoes like these because the straps dig into my feet, but these are super soft suede, and the low heel makes them easy to walk in.
I wish they had a bit more arch support, though, and I’m slightly concerned about my pinky toe getting all squished up in the strap, but it’s not like I’m going to be running a marathon in them or anything.
Should be alright.
I love the little details, like the sweet zipper in the back and the geometric cutouts around the ankle.
For years, I was strictly a high heels girl, and I still am to a degree, but truth be told, I am utterly over shoes that hurt my feet. Now I’m trying to embrace flats, even though they make me feel hella tiny.
I like flats with some personality, too, and these say, “Yeah, I’m a tough girl who goes to the farmers’ market!” to me.
I think they’d look cute with shorts or a summer dress.
In addition to the black shade, they also come in tan and coral (CUTE). You can find them now at Nordstrom stores and online at nordrstrom.com.
Have you found any good shoes lately? High heels or flats?
