Help outfit me with shoe ideas!

  1. I live in a very humid and hot climate and pretty much wear sundresses and light skirts/shirts/blouses year round.
    Can you all give me some shoe ideas...some of your favorites to work with sundresses and skirts. I would prefer an option other than really strappy and my toes all hanging out. I am open to anything.
     
  2. Hi Kellybag!

    Maybe round-toe pumps in neutral colors like beige or red? I do like to wear round-toe pumps right now in summer as an alternative to strappy sandals.

    Also, I think ballerinas would fit really nicely with sundresses. There are also some closed-toe wedge espadrilles that are very cute.

    Oh, and sling back peep toes or fulll shoe peep toes are excellent!
     
  3. Hi Kellybag, I read about Me Too shoes on fivestarreviews, they sound comfy (judging from the reviews on Zappos). Many of their shoes are on sale thru' Friday.

  4. Thank you both for your help...going to look now.
     
  5. How about kitten-heeled mules or pumps in a lighter fabric or light-colored suede (more summery)?
     
  6. Do you have any espadrilles? Christian Louboutin has great closed toe espadrilles that would look great with a sundress!
     
  7. I do love espadrilles...I am going to take a look now.

    Thank you IntlSet and Maxter for your input. Appreciate it!
     
  8. yup yup yup :yes::yes::yes:!

    the platform in front makes the shoe less steep, even though the heel is so high, so it's pretty comfortable. i love them!
     
  9. Kellybag, I know you said you don't want really strappy stuff but mohops' creations are cute - you can customise your shoes. :smile:

    How to wear your shoesThe most unique aspect of Mohop shoes is Annie's patent-pending 'strapping system' (for which she has yet to come up with a proper name). Essentially, the wearer can customize her shoes by changing the ribbons that tie the shoes on. Different lengths and styles of ribbons can be used to achieve a virtually infinite number of looks with just one pair of wooden bottoms. So anybody can play Imelda Marcos without requiring the budget and storage space for 5,000 shoes.

    Are they comfortable?We are often asked whether the shoes are comfortable - they are! Annie credits the shoes' comfort to three factors: the material, the shape and the elastic. The wood is firm yet silky-smooth - there's nothing to irritate a sensitive foot. Additionally, the curved shape of the footbed provides even support along the length of the foot, alleviating the typical fatigue points at the heel or ball of the foot. Finally, the elastic allows the wearer to customize her fit: the wearer should tie the sandals firmly enough that she is not using her toes to hold the shoe on, so her feet can relax instead of working to keep the shoes on. The elastic allows the ribbon ties to move with the foot, eliminating the blisters and chafing associated with most new sandals.
