Winter is here, the holidays are over, the blues are setting in. What better way to combat them than to look at new shoes? It’s window shopping, but online. I love doing this, so I rounded up some of the picks I am thinking about for the rest of the winter.
1. Nordstrom – Sam Edelman – Krissy Espadrille Flat | 2. Nordstrom – Jeffrey Campbell – Caceres Bootie | 3. Soludos – Ciao Bella Ibiza Sneaker |
4. Nordstrom – Kenneth Cole New York Hannon Slide Sandal |
5. Boden – Henrietta Flats | 6. Asos – Puma – Basket Pink Bow White Sneakers | 7. Boden – Classic Sneakers | 8. DSW – Unisa Adivan – Over The Knee Boot | 9. Asos – Adidas Originals I-5923 Runner Sneakers In Red And Pink | 10. Nordstrom – Linea Paolo – Toledo Pump
Sneakers are my go-to for every day wear and even though it’s winter, I keep wearing them. They’re easy to wear with almost everything, they are comfy, and because I live in NYC, they don’t hurt my feet. But, they have to be cool sneaks. As you can tell from above, I’ve chosen 4 pair and there are different reasons for all of them.
Number 3, the Soludos, are similar to my favorite smoking slipper from the summer which also had the Ciao Bella embellishment. I love the shade of pink, it’s perfect to add some happiness to otherwise dreary days.
The Puma bow sneaks (6), are just plain fun. The bow adds a touch of whimsy. These would look cool with jeans or sweet dresses. These could take you into spring with the shade of purple.
I have the Boden ones (7), and love them. They remind me a bit of Gucci ones with their red and blue stripes on the back of the shoe. The tiny bit of animal print on the side is a great addition to make the sneaker stand out.
Lastly, we have the Adidas sneaks (9). I’m just so glad they’re not Stan Smith’s. I’m over that trend, let’s put it to bed, shall we? And start a new one with these awesome pink and red ones. I’m really into putting those colors together lately. It feels cool and chic, and would be tres gorgeous walking around NYC with black jeans.
Sometimes sneakers aren’t exactly what you should be wearing, but at the same time, you don’t want to go with a heel. Flats are your pick. Number 1, the Sam Edelman espadrilles are probably better suited for spring and summer, but you might be going on a trip this winter. You need this shoe for Bermuda or Miami. It’s a great dupe for the Chanel espadrille.
Number 5, the Henrietta flats, have my favorite color combo again. These will look gorgeous with jeans and black slacks. My only concern is how the back of the shoe would be – it looks like it could be hard and give you blisters. I guess that’s when you get the blister band-aids!
Winter isn’t the season to be parading around in high heels, not with the snowy, slushy yuck. The only odd choice is number 4 because they look more like you should wear them on the beach or in Miami. I chose them because I think they’d look cool with tights and a black skirt or dress. I’d keep the focus on the heels with these.
Boots are always welcome at this time of year. These Jeffrey Campbell boots (number 2) are just cool. I wouldn’t say they’re a total dupe of the Chloe Rylee Lace-Up Leather Boots, but they’re fairly close.
Number 8, the over the knee boots, are a good dupe for the Stuart Weitzman ‘Lowland‘ Over the Knee Boot. It’s not winter without a good knee high or over the knee boot. These from DSW are a phenomenal price.
Last up is number 10. I love a good low block heel as you can see below.
In the winter months, when the sun sets at 4 pm, I like wearing a pop of color. These red block heels will surely help with that. I also love the shape of the heel. It’s so different – I’ve never seen a heel like this before.
That wraps up my list of winter shoes I’m looking at getting. What about you guys… are there any shoes you love that you only wear in the winter? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear!
