Shoe Review: Kork-Ease

Today’s shoe review will be a little different.  Instead of reviewing a pair of shoes I already own I’m reviewing shoes I want to own.  I was in my friend’s store last week and I spotted these beautiful Mary Jane pumps.  I slipped them on and they felt like heaven.  Kork-Ease is a new line to my friend’s store, but the company has been around for a long time.  Actually, since 1953.  The company is based in Brooklyn, New York and became popular for their thick, cork platform sandals.  Now they have a variety of gorgeous shoes to offer such as boots and adorable wedge oxfords.  These are the shoes that captured my heart…

Aren’t they sweet!  It’s great to find a company that can make a comfortable shoe and still maintain their modern vintage vibe.

Shoe Review: Leopard Booties

Don’t get it twisted! Fall is right around the corner and the fashion forecast calls for booties and more animal print.  I’m glad to be able to dust off these leopard booties I bought last year and give them new life.  This year I’m going to make an effort to pair them with skirts and dresses instead of just my skinny jeans.  I purchased these from Shoxie.com which is a fashion website developed by the fashionista behind Style Pantry, Folake Kuye Huntoon.  This fashion maven is definitely one of my style icons and her impeccable taste translates to her online store.  You will find great, trendy clothes at very reasonable prices.  You can thank me later :-)

These leopard booties are hot, but not so comfortable.  I try to make them a little bit more tolerable with gel cushions inside and only wear them to places I won’t have to do a lot of standing or walking.
