Yippee! It’s Friday! Friday is my favorite day of the week, since every one’s excited about the weekend, but hasn’t yet contracted a case of the “Winding Down Weekend Blues.” If you ask me, the best shoes for Fridays are comfortable chameleons that make you feel pretty at the office and flirty at the cocktail bar. Perfect Friday shoes are also sporty, so that you can trot through your yoga class, shopping, and socializing with spunky grace.
I give you one shoe that combines all of these Friday shoe requirements to adorable effect: Mexico Tigress by Asics, shown above. It all starts with a 1940s-ish classy herringbone pattern. Scalloped suede = flirty and feminine. Leather buckles = sporty and on the go. Heck, even the tiny palm trees on the inside are perfect for Fridays– they’re like a secret reminder of the approaching mini-vacation weekend.
Shoe namers don’t seem to agree with my assessment of which shoes are perfect for Fridays. Some crafters have created shoes that actually announce their Friday shoe-ness, like the Keds flats at Zazzle that are actually labeled “Casual Friday,” or the “TGIF, baby” shoes that look like they’d fit in on the GTA Vice City scene. That’s a little too casual (and obvious) if you ask me. Plus, the labeling means you can only wear these shoes 14% of the time.
Here’s one more Shoefly Friday shoe: Auo083 by One of Two. The earthy color scheme, textured wedge and feminine straps add up to a perfect Friday shoe for summer and spring. These are so cute, you just might find yourself making them Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday shoes as well.
