I Love These Shoes!


Hold onto your hats. I am not doing a fall decorating post today. I know. Hard to believe, because I have been in full fall mode the last couple of weeks. Today, I have some great shoes to share with you. 


I absolutely love these shoes!

I bought a similar pair last winter and knew I needed to get this pump version this fall. 

I cannot wear a four inch high heel. I don't think I could have worn a four inch party shoe when I was twenty-five either. :-) I have short feet, which go with my short height. 



I love cute party shoes...but I also need shoes that let me walk and look stylish in a pump at the same time. 

Whether it is walking across campus for meetings (I am on my college's alumni board) or walking across the church parking lot, I need a sturdy dress pump feel good shoe.

I need a leather shoe that looks good with dress slacks as well as a wool skirt and sweater and maybe dress jeans. This shoe works for me! 



This shoe is part of the Naturalizer @Work collection. The sole is patented to be non-slip on a wet or oily surface. I love that the shoe is super squishy inside. It feels like a bit of memory foam...but I am not really sure. 

I love a great Italian leather dress shoe, but I am usually ready to kick it off as soon as I can. 

I could walk around a museum or city street in these pumps/shoes and not die of pain. 



I find that I can wear a thin knee high sock or stockings with this shoe. I like to wear tights with skirts or dresses in the winter so it is no problem with this pump. 

Hubby said they looked like sturdy shoes. I was not sure that was a compliment at first...but at my age I like a shoe with a study heel and sure footed-ness. :-) 



I also like the almond shaped toe this shoe has. Naturalizer has a dress heel with almost this same toe shape. Yes, they are study looking shoes, but they are study without looking like a laceup  two inch leather oxford that my great grandmother used to wear. ha!




I read many of the reviews of this shoe on the Naturalizer.com website and as with any shoe it fit some folks and not others. 

Almost everyone writing a review agreed that the comfort level is wonderful. If you are looking for a tailored pump for fall I have to say that you might want to try this shoe. I absolutely love it. 

Right now it only comes in black leather...but I sure hope they consider adding navy, brown, etc. This would be a great teacher shoe or career shoe. It will go with professional suits as well as dress jeans I think. 

One reviewer worked for an airline and had to "dress" for her job. She said she was on her feet most of the day and found these shoes to be wonderful. 



I have included the shoe info from my box to help you try to find it. 

Yes, I wear a 4.5. It is so hard to find shoes for such a short bit of a foot. ha! When I do find a great shoe I have to shout it to the heavens and share with everyone. (When I was in high school and college the sample shoe size was a 4B. I was in heaven. Now...I think the sample size is a 6. boohoo) 

I personally think twenty-something professionals up through grandmothers would find this shoe appealing. It is office dressy while being comfortable. No need to pull the sneakers out from under your desk. :-)

Naturalizer.com offers sales and coupon codes on its website, so that helps a lot!

I have NO affiliation with the company...I just love the shoes and wanted to share with you all. I mean, we all want comfortable shoes that look great too. So often we have to resort to ortho styles for true comfort. 




More fall decorating next time. :-)
