Since I unfairly dumped all over Viktor + Rolf’s questionable shoe design yesterday, I feel like I have to make a karma deposit and tell you about a really wonderful pair of shoes today. I’m a heels girl – always have been – the higher the better in my opinion. I can make heels work with anything, and they serve a practical function in my household, given that my children tower over me by about 3″ and I need all the help I can get to maintain my authority and eye level contact with them.
A few weeks ago I went to Paris (it was wonderful!) but knew that the amount of walking I would be doing, coupled with the uneven sidewalks and cobblestone streets of the city, would spell disaster for my feet if I had to maneuver around in heels. So I bought a pair of flats. I put a lot of energy into finding the perfect pair that combined style, comfort, function, versatility, durability and panache. This is what I came up with:
Tory Burch’s Caroline Patent Ballerina Flat totally delivered the goods. It was comfortable, chic, went with every outfit I packed, and held up to miles of walking every day. I like these shoes so much they have become my go-to shoes now that I’m back in my real life. Who cares if I have to stand on a platform to be eye level with my kids! My shoes look great and my feet are comfortable and happy.
So if you are looking to invest in a pair of workhorses (and I do mean invest, as these shoes are pricey) that will be there when you really need them, try a pair of Tory Burch flats. They come in a wide variety of colors, styles and fabrics and hold up to heavy-duty wear. Tory Burch shoes are available at major department and specialty stores, as well as on-line at ToryBurch.com
