|Red Shoes of Luck and Happiness|
Les chaussures sans douleurs
These shoes (above) are the pair I'm wearing in Wednesday's post. A pair of red pumps was one of those wardrobe items I can't ever remember not wanting, but never quite ran across the right pair. Comfort is non-negotiable for me; I will no longer tolerate painful or even mildly uncomfortable shoes. But I also wanted a pair with verve. I mean, if you're going for red pumps you want a bit of that Sohpia Loren attitude!
A few weeks ago I stopped into Cole Haan to look at the brogues, but these little flirts had other plans for me. They were seductive to look at, yes, but then I tried them on and wow! Super comfortable. The heel isn't tremendously high to begin with, but the platform reduces the pitch of the shoe a bit further. (They look higher than they feel.) The sole is quite padded and cushioned, being made with Nike Air® technology. The interior is leather-lined too. There was no resisting their charms. I think we'll be very happy together.
Yes, they're pricey. Not Manolo pricey, but nothing to sneeze at. While I find that Cole Haan products generally deliver excellent value for the money, there are similar options available at a lower price. Here's one example:

Do you have any Ruby Slippers in your shoe wardrobe? What do you wear them with?
More options below, in a variety of colors if red isn't your thing...
