I live in my Nikes. They are comfortable, easy to slip on and off, keep my feet warmer than my flats in these insane cold temperatures, and I actually find I have more stability on ice with them, than actual snow boots. However, since I'm trying to occasionally wear clothes other than leggings and hoodies and actually putting myself together if even just for a playdate or running errands, I've been missing a shoe I can wear with jeans, sweaters, and blouses. I love my riding boots, but I always find myself skipping them, since they require boot socks, and sitting down to get on and off. We always use our mudroom when entering the house and when my hands are full of bags and kids, and trying to help them get their shoes, coats, and accessories off, I just find the boots a hassle. I love the bootie trend, but have been afraid of investing in a pair because I'm unsure how much I'd wear them, with them having a heel. When out at the Anthro birthday event, I waffled over what shoes to wear because I didn't want to be standing around in my heeled boots, knowing my feet would never handle it. My friend wore her pair booties and I asked if she wears them a lot and if they are comfortable. She said she was actually surprised how often she does wear them. So I decided to get looking. I favorited these pairs and compared prices, sizes and discounts available.
They are perfect, I wanted a pair that dipped in front to help not cut straight across my ankle, a taupe suede color, a lower heel, that was still higher than one 1", and best of all, they aren't made with synthetic materials. I do wish there was a strap or some embellishment, but I think the lack of one makes them more versatile. They are so comfortable and I already know I will definitely be wearing them into the spring. Excited to see what my next Stitch Fix has for me to wear them with ;)

Do you find yourself wearing practical shoes (running shoes, toms, uggs, etc) all the time like me? I'm thrilled the running shoe trend is in, but happy to have found a real shoe thats comfy and cute.
