So if you've survived reading my threads lately whining about foot woes and what shoes to buy for Spring/Summer - thank you! Your wisdom and input has helped me tremendously in moving forward with some purchase decisions.

Here are the links to my previous posts should you want to have a look:

Based on my needs for both comfort and style, these are the items I will be trying out:

#1 - Naot criss cross flats. Firecracker has these in the taupe shade and I adore them on her. But it's black flats I'm after and since I can always bookend black with my hair, that's what I've ordered. They should be here in a couple of days and I'll report back after arrival. Unfortunately after a bit more research, I have determined the Eileen Fisher ankle strap flats that look so fab will not provide enough arch support.

#2 - Naot gold Gladiator style sandal. A versatile color and style that should work with both casual and more dressy items, weekends and at work. I love the detailing on the front panel.

#3 - white Birkenstock Arizonas. Birks were made for my weird little feet and I wore the heck out of my black/white polka dot ones last summer. These will be my white footwear this warm season.

#4 - Clarks lower heeled version of the SE Okala - available in wide. My issue will be finding these in Canada - so far, no luck.

What I have already in my spring/summer shoe capsule and will be still wearing happily are:

  • black/white polka dot Birks
  • bone/silver Fugitive shoe sandals
  • cream laser cut oxfords
Thanks again soooooo much for all of your help ladies - luv ya
