We walk so much in New York City in general. Even working at a desk (and hardly moving) the entire day, I still walk a ton. Now that I have the Jawbone UP band though, I walk even more. It’s top of mind for me knowing that my steps are being tracked. I choose to walk instead of taking the subway. It takes a little bit more time, but the fresh air (even if it’s cold) is amazing! I can absolutely clear my head… I pop in my headphones and just walk out all the nervous energies.
Now, the one problem is that my feet can really hurt from all that walking. I definitely want to wear cute shoes, but I also have to be able to get my steps in!!
These three shoes are my go-tos.
Cece Flats | The J. Crew ballet flats are just really great. I do love my regular flats, but I just bought the Cece flat and they are truly perfect. The leather is basically already broken in for you. I walked 13,000 steps on the first wear with zero blisters. That, my friends, is a success when it comes to shoes.
TOMS | These are the shoes that I wear on the weekends when I’m running random errands. They’re just comfortable and super easy to throw on. In fact, if I’m wearing more uncomfortable shoes to work, I’ll wear these walking to the subway stop and change when I get to work. They’re pretty compact!
Canvas Sneaks | Casual weekends are my favorite. These are super cheap (seriously, can I get them in every color?) and they’re just great for lazy days. But they’re still cute. You get the benefits of sneakers (although you wouldn’t want to run three miles in them) and they go with regular outfits.
My boots during the winter were always really comfortable and kept my feet warm. Now that it’s (sort of) warming up though, I’m definitely looking for new options too.
What’s your favorite comfortable (and cute) pair of shoes?
