Well-Heeled Wednesday: Newton Running Shoes

I must start this post with a disclaimer. I am not a runner. I have tried to be a runner, but the farthest I have succeeded in running is 5K and I cursed the entire time. However, a few years ago my Mom and I participated in a 3 Day Walk for breast cancer. We walked 60 miles over the course of three days, so our feet needed some serious support. When we were training, people suggested that we try running shoes rather than walking shoes. Lucky for us, we stumbled into a little running shoe boutique on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and discovered Newtons. Now, everyone’s foot is different, so I can’t promise that these shoes will be as amazing for you as they are for me, but I LOVE them. They are hands down the most comfortable brand of athletic shoes I have ever worn. Equally exciting, for me at least, they come in obnoxiously bright colors. My original pair was yellow and orange and a fellow walker named them my “Walking on Sunshine” shoes. My current pair is bright pink and I think of them as my workout Barbie shoes. It might not work for everyone, but strapping some bright color to my feet always makes me a little bit happier to head to the gym. If you’re looking for a new pair of running/walking/thinking-about-running shoes, I highly suggest you check these out.

Well-Heeled Wednesday: Fair Weather Flats

I am heading to New Orleans for a few days and can’t wait to break out my warm weather shoes. I have a closetful of fun, playful flats but I’m always coveting new pairs. Cole Haan recently introduced the Manhattan Ballet flat in a ton of awesome colors and I want them all! I especially adore the teal shown below. I can’t wait to get my hands on them, although I have to admit I’m a little sad they don’t contain Nike Air technology. Hopefully they will still be crazy comfortable!

Well-Heeled Wednesday: Ugg Ansley Slippers

I love a pair of sky high heels. I covet fancy flats. But I work from home and most days I live in my comfy clothes. Still, just because I’m clad in stretchy leggings and a hoodie doesn’t mean I can’t accessorize. These lovely slippers are the perfect compliment to my work day uniform. Cozy, warm and adorable. My pair is bright purple, but they come in a variety of colors including several neutrals if you’re looking for something a little less ridiculous.

P.S. The kitties also adore my slippers.
