Yeah, ok, Tkees, I see what you’re saying. It’s a clever marketing campaign.
When you go to Tkees’ website, they advertise their shoes as “Cosmetics For Your Feet.” The flip-flops are then divided into lipsticks, blushes, glosses, etc, according to their colors. It’s a really fun idea.
But let me break it down for you. What these are, is just basically REALLY COMFORTABLE FLIP-FLOPS.
And that’s what I’m looking for this summer for lazily moseying around my neighborhood attending concerts and going to the market. My Havaianas are great for the pool, but the thong strap has cut major blisters into my skin.
I tried these on, and I’m not saying they absolutely won’t cut into your skin, but they sure as hell were comfy and the straps were soft, so I’m hoping they won’t. I’m going to order a couple pairs, probably leather and suede. You can also buy them at ShopBop and Bloomingdales.
Em, yes. Apparently Crocs have figured out that their traditional Croc was not the way to go. While beloved by gardeners and chefs worldwide, the traditional Croc was just about one of the ugliest things the world had ever seen made for a foot.
But aha! They figured out (perhaps from seeing Melissa’s model, or reminiscing on jellies of yore) that they could make a cute plastic shoe. Thermoplastic polyurethane, to be exact. The insole also features a foam resin called croslite™ with circulation nubs for a massage-like feel.
There’s a lot to love about these new Earth Sandals.
In the past, I had eschewed Earth Sandals. Those hippie girls I went to school with wore them, but I could never bring myself, even when I was a campus protesting activist gal. UGLY UGLY UGLY I kept hearing in my mind.
Not so with the Earth Enchanting, $119 at EarthFootwear.com. Excellent arch support, cushioning and cute decoration are the mood here. I tried them on, and they look and feel much better in person! So on my quest for comfy sandals this summer, I present you with Exhibit B (Exhibit A were the Bass Chloes). It’s environmental, comy and stylish, and definitely worth a look.
This white one, called Mimmi, is one of the several colors available, including red and black. Love the bow!
Natural grain leather, wood platform and a rubber sole combine to make a very practical but adorable shoe. The slingback is a nice touch, but be aware that it might stretch over time.
The heel is 4.1 inches and the platform is 1.2 inches. This will raise your calf a bit and give you some oomph without it being unmanageable, but be aware, this is not like wearing a flat clog!
This shoe was so comfortable, I felt like I was walking on air and did not want to take it off.
Not comfortable because it’s flat, since I don’t find a lot of simply flat shoes comfy, but comfy because it had a wonderful padded cushioned insole.
This is the most comfortable sandal I’ve tried on all spring, and the vamp support is great as well.
