I’m kicking up my heels over of a new brand of footwear that’s brought a lot of excitement to my wardrobe lately.
Take a look at these cute and comfy shoes from Adrian Allen!
These are called the Stella. They have a wide, 2.5 inch platform heel and have quickly become the brand’s most popular shoe. Low and easy to wear, these shoes have got me thinking that I may not have to give up heels after all.
Here’s the backstory. I recently attended a family memorial in high heel dress shoes (the kind I used to wear all the time, everywhere in my 30’s, but now in my 50’s, only care to wear for very special occasions).
After my sweet husband dropped me as close as he possibly could to the reception door because I could barely walk, I wobbled up a long flight of stairs and sat down at a big round cloth-covered table.
I then, discreetly slipped off shoes so my feet could breathe, and I never put those heels back on again until it was time to go. At the end of it all, I really thought my days of heels were over.
Next thing you know, I got the chance to try out these shoes, and I must say my faith in heels has been restored.
What is it with my feet anyhow? They never used to hurt? I did a little research, and it turns out that what we’ve all heard is true. As we age our feet cushions get thinner, our toes spread and our feet widen; they actually get bigger. That and a lot of other stuff that goes with our feet makes it really hard to wear heels past a certain age.
Thank goodness Gwen Allen, the entrepreneur behind Adrian Allen shoes figured all this out and began making shoes to solve the problem.
This is the second time I have tested a pair of Adrian Allen shoes (the first pair was the Donna), and I’ve found them to be very comfy and easy to walk in. The criss-cross ankle strap gives good support, and I was really surprised how sturdy they felt on my feet.
Not only that, but these shoes are very chic looking too, something which is hard to find with a comfort shoe. The Stella comes in an elegant tan nubuck which is fabulous year round and looks very sophisticated worn with white pants. It also comes in black.
It’s got sporty zippers on the heels and cute tassels that swing as you walk, adding loads of style.
What I love most about the Stella is you can wear it with anything. It looks great with a dress or skirt, but equally cute with a casual pair of pants or jeans.
If you love heels and don’t want to give them up, you may find these Adrian Allen shoes calling your name. I for one, love being able to enjoy some height, without the hurt. Check out the Stella along with several other fabulous styles created by a woman for women, just like us.
