I bought these shoes two or three weeks before Christmas. They’re Earth shoes and normally cost about $100 but I got them for $47 and change, which makes me feel slightly less guilty about buying shoes that I don’t, strictly speaking, need. But I’m glad I gave in to temptation. I love them. They’re very comfortable and I love the look. Aren’t they just the cutest! The socks (also very cute) were a Christmas gift from my wonderful sister-in-law.
These are my first pair of Earth shoes. I’m always skeptical about gimmicky features and claims, like the toe being 3.7 degrees higher than the heel, which is a big deal with Earth shoes, but I was also curious and always wanted a pair. I really love the look of these and, like I said, it was a really good sale so they are now on my feet and they feel great.
They’re also supposed to “help you burn more calories as you walk.” I am still skeptical about that claim but I’m definitely going to stop eating so much delicious, fattening food after New Years and if I lose a few pounds I’m perfectly willing to give all the credit to the shoes.
Now that I’ve tried and love one pair of Earth shoes, these are really tempting me. (One of the suede colors though, not the shiny ones) They’re adjustable so I could wear them around the house with socks now and barefoot later, which is something I had already been thinking about but I was thinking about Birkenstocks, or the cheap knock-offs they sell at Wal-mart every summer, but now I’m hooked on Earth shoes.
