As I am a boot fiend, I had to check these out. I almost wished they came in my size! I love the look of the leather and the laces with a zip on the side.
These Sperrys also caught my eye as they are not what one traditionally thinks of when the name Sperry comes up. At least not around here. Here we think "boat shoes" or "topsiders". I like the light suede and the rough edge to the stitching and around the top.
These runners were interesting to me because of the thinner sole. For a good while there, the soles of running shoes were getting thicker and even included springs, air and gels in the soles for cushioning and support. Recent studies at Harvard and the book "Born to Run" have shoe makers returning to the thin running soles of the early 70s and 80s. "Born to Run" is an excellent book, even for those of us who are not runners.
I really like these grey Adidas. The bright aqua on the back of the shoe adds a nice touch of color. Unseen in the photo, the sole of this shoe is the same blue. I vote "very cool" for a casual weekend shoe.
If you are a man into bold shoes or just one who likes to stand out in the crowd, these bright blue and orange Adidas will work for you. I love color so you know I had to photograph these.
Here is a shoe for the ladies: Jessica Simpson pump like one featured last week but I think I prefer this color combination better. Black body with cobalt on the heel, aqua and tangerine on the platform. It would be perfect for me. Size 8 please!The below Mary Jane styled flat I found on the ultra-clearance rack for 80% off the original $40 price. I purchased these for my daughter and she loved them. She put them on as soon as I gave them to her. Big Bubba is the brand.
That is your Shoesday report for this week. Inspire your menfolk to get colorful with their footwear.
