I have been looking for the perfect summer shoes for a while. There is so much choice about which isn’t a bad thing but when you are on a tight budget (and you can’t afford to buy shoes for every outfit you own / days of the week) you want something that can be worn over again and with different items and more importantly that they are going to last. Recently I was asked to choose a pair of shoes from Shoe Zone’s spring / summer collection. There is a huge range of shoes to choose from and I was stuck between two pairs but in the end I decided to I choose a pair of Lilley black strappy sandals.
Comfort is one thing I take very seriously with shoes. I love shoes but they have to be comfy. I am no longer a spring chicken in her youth trying to look impressive walking in heels and over the years I have had many a day / night out in lovely looking shoes only to come to home to aching feet and blisters. I learnt the hard way last year when we went to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Having been on my feet for 8 hours on the hottest day of the year my feet look like balloons by the time we had got home. It took days for the blisters to go away – I will not make that mistake again in a hurry.
Although it is a very miserable day today I am hoping the sun will return soon so that I can make the most of it and wear my lovely new shoes.
