The is the pair that I wear most often and for good reason. I purchased it while searching for something to replace a beloved pair of modern cowgirl boots that I wore to death. The soft faux suede feel and neutral colour palette makes it easy to pair with clothing be it with a blazer or a fun summer dress. I love the simplistic design with the top stitching detail which looks like a city version of a country boot. Thick heels and a zipper means I can walk comfortably from cobblestone to grass and the treaded bottom keeps me on my feet.
I picked up this pair solely for the fact that it looks identical to a black pair from Forever21 that I own which in turn is a dupe for a pair of Chinese Laundry shoes. At a mere $15 when it was on sale during Black Friday, there was absolutely no way I was passing these up. Even though d’orsay styles can often slip in the back heel, this pair was surprisingly snug when I ordered in a half size down. It could do with a little extra arch support but overall I am thrilled. The bottom of the shoe is rubber which makes sure I won’t be making a fool of myself in slippery hotel lobbies when I head to events. Faux suede, deep red and oh so luxurious looking.

Everybody needs a shoe that just gets them out of the door quickly in the winter weather. This is my pair. Purchased at the same time as my Lady Shoe, I was desperately seeking an everyday shoe that can handle a bit of rain, snow and is, for all intents and purposes on the Westcoast…an all terrain shoe. This fit the bill perfectly. I ordered a size up to accommodate for thicker winter socks. This convertible style actually allows you to wear the boot laced all the way up or folded down to reveal a bit of faux fur while still keeping my feet warm and dry. Not quite a snow boot, not quite a rain boot but perfect for the daily hustle in bad weather.

The moral of today’s post? Good shoes often come from unexpected places. Old Navy only carries a small selection of shoes but it seems that once in a while, a real gem will pop up. If possible however, I would suggest checking them out in stores just to insure there aren’t any loose seams or major quality issues but all three pairs I own came out perfectly fine. Definitely worth revisiting for everyday simple footwear. I’ve got them bookmarked.
