Both styles are attractive, comfortable, soft, stable, roomy and relatively supportive. Add an insole for extra cushioning comfort, and be sure to check all the colour options.
- Steven by Steve Madden ‘Wesleyy’ Bootie: Simple in design, stud-free, low heeled, not suede, and not distressed. A tall order in a retail world flooded with distressed, suede, studded and high heeled casual bootie options. If you don’t like the tassel on the faux back zipper, cut it off. Runs true to size, and I vote ivory or cognac.
- Fidji ‘Cachet’ Oxford: This cheeky oxford has a turned up nose. I liked both colour options. They are ideal with trousers or jeans that are tapered at the hems, or with skirts and dresses and dark hosiery. No socks! Stick to knee-highs, very fine gauge trouser socks, or hose for foot coverage. They run true to size.
Sometimes you don’t need to wear a “wide size” when you have bunions or a wider foot. A roomy toe box can do the trick.
