This is way different for me here, but I find I just have to share about my new favorite shoes! I did a lot of searching for a comfortable but good-looking shoe to wear before we left for Greece and Kosovo, and let me tell you, comfort and cute do not usually go together! I found the ugliest shoes – and for ridiculously large amounts of money – when I searched for walking shoe, traveling shoe or comfortable shoe/flat.
Not only was I looking for comfort, I needed the shoes to go with different outfits, since we were traveling with only carry-on luggage. That meant jeans, capris and skirts. Yep, I really started out thinking I could find a comfortable shoe that looked good with skirts that wasn’t a sandal (Greece and Kosovo in April are often rainy).
After buying 2 pairs of black flats locally and ordering 3 pairs from Amazon (thank you free returns for shoes!), enduring blisters and squished toes, I was about to give up. Then I stumbled on this awesome shoe made by Skechers that’s inexplicably from their ‘bikers’ line of shoes. I mean, do they look like biking shoes? (And these links are my affiliate links – if you buy them, I thank you! But really, I think you’ll be thanking me back if you buy them!).
They’re called Skechers Women’s Bikers-Scrunchy Ruched Open-Toe Skimmer and here’s the deal: $30. Yep, truly. And they come in other colors, too – the brown is tempting me as I write this. There are about 75 reviews and the rating is 4-1/2 stars, and if you’ve ever searched for shoes, you know how good this is.
The ruching gives them a bit of polish, but the tennis-shoe-type sole keeps them comfortable. I wasn’t sure about the sole at first – from the side it seemed to look a bit odd - but on you don’t notice it and others don’t, either.
Let me just say: they are super comfortable – I walked all over the Acropolis and the surrounding Plaka in Athens while wearing them – and they are really cute. I get compliments on them all the time.
In other words, I have to share them with all my female readers (the majority to be sure, but I do have a few male readers)! If anything, just to spare you the time you might spend looking for a pair of good looking, comfortable shoes.
But I also want you to look good, too – so there.
Click here to look at the shoes, read the reviews, and buy them. And then make sure to come back and tell me what you think after you’ve worn them – I think you’re gonna love them, obviously, but I want to make sure!
Oh, and there are other shoes in this bikers line – here are two others I think would be good as well, but I just can’t vouch for them:
