I’ve recently purchased new shoes that seem to have a lot in common. The black patent is a new to me brand that is super comfy. Donald Pliner Elen. This shoe is a winner for me. Plus, I found a color on the Franco Sarto Angie shoe that doesn’t skew too preppy for my preference. And the Naturalizer is comfy too. One I found at DSW and N. Rack, but more casual than the patent.
