Shoes were my #1 wardrobe priority for fall/winter. I want to wear flat shoes most of the time and had very few. I do have ankle boots with slightly higher heels and also some pumps so I decided to focus on the flats first. I also had a goal of getting some in colors other than black. Here’s what I got:

Vionic pointy toe flats. A top pic and well deserved. These are the first pointy toe flats I’ve found in many years that are comfortable. Most flats don’t have enough padding in the sole for meand/or they rub on my big toe knuckle causing blisters and even nerve pain, and these have neither problem. Read Angie's notes. I got them in the silver snakeskin and the leopard print to go with outfits in cool and warm colors. These shoes are just the right amount of "dressy" for most of my activities.

Ecco patent leather sneaker in “warm grey”. Super comfy brand, I really love the metal lace hardware on these. The laces are NOT as shown in the pic, they are a cooler grey that reads as steel blue, which is very strange. I’m going to look for some grey/pewter laces which I think will look better.

Franco Sarto zipper loafers. This is a brand I find very comfortable and the leather always seems better than the price might indicate. I thought these were very modern looking.

Last but not least I needed a new pair of running/walking shoes and found these Saucony’s …one of my go-to brands for athletic shoes.

I’ve also been looking for a comfort shoe/loafer to wear at home with socks, but have rejected all candidate so far.

If you are interested in seeing what I tried on and rejected, I have documented them in this collection

Here are a few outfits for the new shoes (except the running shoes) ..excuse the messy hair and lack of makeup…all comments welcome of course!

- Ecco Sneakers: Tomato vneck sweater, Adrienne Vittadini Quilted vest with faux fur lining, Talbots straight leg jeans, scarf
