Shoes, glorious shoooeeeessssss

Sung to the tune of ' food, glorious foooooooood' from Ice Age.

For a few weeks I've been on the look out for a pair of really good, comfortable walking shoes. Mainly for our trip to Sweden this summer, because I will be walking around all day most days (one reason why I LOVE Europe.)

I have the most comfortable tennis shoes that i wear on long walks- but let's face it, I will be wearing lot's of cute summer dresses, and my tennis shoes added won't exactly make for a cute outfit.

I also have a couple pair of nice leather sandals that I love to wear with dresses and can walk just fine in them for a long time. But this is Sweden in the summer, rain during our 2 week stay is inevitable, and leather sandals + rain, puddles don't mix.

Two weekends ago we were at the mall and I decided to take a look through The Walking Company. I ended up finding TWO pairs that I loved, were super comfortable AND relatively cute. I ended up going with a pair of taos. Apparently I have a super high arch- and need the added support.

Last Friday they finally arrived- and I decided to test them out at the zoo on Saturday. Normally I wouldn't try out new shoes if I'm going to be walking in them for hours at a time the first time- but these were Perfect! Unbelievably comfortable. After hours at the zoo pushing Jasper in the stroller, having part of Jasper's juice spilled on the front of them- they held up amazingly. Comfortable- cute-durable. What more could I want in a shoe??

I think these shoes will serve me well when I'm walking around Stockholm this summer.

  1. Cute! It's always so hard to find shoes that are both stylish and comfortable. I rarely do :(
