Weekend in Review: Shoes and News

Spring has sprung, the clocks have been re-set and we’re busy choosing what shoes to wear on St. Patrick’s Day (green, of course!). In all our preparations we haven’t forgotten to search out the latest news in shoes and foot fashion.

Hush Puppies turn 50—The shoe brand known for being relaxed, sturdy and comfortable celebrated its 50th anniversary this week.

Like to stand out in a crowd?—This shoe, designed by Marc Jacobs, is for the high-heeled rebel in all of us. With an intentionally misplaced heel—it’s located directly behind the toe and is horizontal to the ground—  this shoe requires a bit of courage to wear. Let us know if you can actually walk in these things. They look like a face plant waiting to happen, but we still love the color.

If the shoe fits—So you’ve got the perfect stilettos, clogs, flats and loafers. Now it’s time to find the perfect workout shoes. This article provides a sound starting point on how to find that perfect sole-supporting sneaker.

Pain in the heel—Did you know that the most common foot problem is something you might not have ever heard of? Plantar fascitiis is characterized by a persistent or sharp pain in the heel of the foot caused by high-heels and  shoes with little arch support. Read more to find out how to massage your heels back to health.

Weekend in Review: Shoes and News

The weather is getting steadily warmer here in the Northwest. We celebrated by purchasing some great footwear at the Shoefly sale this weekend. Before we start the work week, let’s take a look at what happened in the wide world of shoe news.

Spring fever—Have you had enough of your black winter boots, but you’re still not ready to brave the cold in strappy sandals?  The New York Times has your solution. Pair colorful spring heels with winter tights. The bold, bright shoes will create a great look and help you beat the end-of-winter blues.

Seventy year old shoes
—How long would you keep a pair of shoes? For some, a pair of shoes might not have the chance to make it through the season, but one woman kept a pair of shoes for over 70 years. Now, that’s a pair of sturdy shoes.

Happy birthday Converse!—Those iconic sneakers with the all-star logo turns 100 this year. Did you know that Jackson Pollock, John Belushi and The Ramones were all famous for sporting Converses? How many pairs do you own?
