Summer Kicks

NYC weather had been sub par up until Memorial Day Weekend when suddenly it was summer.  Cue me panicking that I had no summer shoes.

To be fair, I was actually experiencing a shoe shortage.  Other than 5-6″ sandals and wedges, I had one pair of flat sandals.  That’s a pretty big crisis.

Now shoe shopping has never been the easiest for me.  I am 5’9″ and with height comes big feet.  My true size is 10.5 but since most shoe brands are assholes and stop making half sized after 9.5, I wear a 10 or 11 depending on the style/brand.

In addition to my sizing struggles, I am also SUPER picky about flats (shocking, I know).  I refuse to buy anything where the sole is just a hard flat piece of plastic or wood.  I require some sort of cushioning – especially with all the walking that comes with living and working in NYC.

So here is where I netted out…


Topshop – ‘Funfair’ Knotted Ankle Tie Sandal
SARTO by Franco Sarto – ‘Pierson’ Lace-Up Sandal (I got the ivory)


Two pairs is obviously not enough, so I am patiently (yeah right) awaiting for the shoes below from the UPS fairy…


The classic Sam Edelman – ‘ Gigi’ Sandal is always one of my go-tos (I already own a ivory/olive/black tri-color pair so I ordered the saddle to have a basic).
This next one I am definitely going to have follow up feedback on once my order arrives.  I was looking for a sandal that is comfortable enough to walk to work in and love when old styles become cool again.

But I am just not sure how these Birks are going to look on my giant feet.  Share opinions please!

Still on the wish list…

Customizable Sseko Caramel T-strap Accent Sandals with my top accents choices – Azele (middle) and Mojave (bottom).
