Comparing Comfortable Slide Wedge Sandals

Steal vs Deal Shoes Photo

My friend Lisa tweeted to me this weekend: so which pair of shoes was $105 at zappos and which one cost $18 at target? not much difference, huh? I was impressed with her "Real vs. Steal" find! The fuschia pink pair (which I actually like better) are the ones from Target: Merona Eura Comfort Slide Wedge Sandals And the yellow sandals are the ones from Zappos: Born Yancy wedge sandals in Girasole Patent Both have great reviews on comfortability. And on a side note, doesn't Lisa's … [Read more...]

Shoe Review: b.o.c. by Born Lesa Clog

I found some black Born shoes on clearance in my size even for under $25 at Gordman's - Woot! They are not the Born Toby or Born Haddon that I originally pined for, but for a fraction of the regular price, I will settle with these b.o.c. by Born Lesa Clogs. Also available from DSW for $54.95 (regularly $80) in Brown and/or Red Patent. When I was trying them on at Gordman's, another customer warned me that they are horrible on ice and did not recommend them at all saying she owns a pair and … [Read more...]

Kim covets Born Toby & Born Haddon

I love my black Born shoes, but I want a new "updated" pair of casual black shoes. I was hoping my Uggleboo Swedish Clogs would take their place, but I have yet to get them to fit my foot right. So I now really, really, really want these Born Toby shoes... They retail for $95 (at ShoeMall, Planet Shoes and/or Zappos), so I've been keeping my eye out for them for less. I found some at Gordman's yesterday for $50ish, but they didn't have my size - boo hoo! So, if any of you see them … [Read more...]

Shoe Review: Born Vineland Pumps

My mother recently bought these Born Vineland mary-jane pumps for her finicky feet, which are available from Zappos.com, $105. At first I told her they looked liked "old lady shoes" to which she replied, "I am an old lady." Touche. But after hearing her rave about how comfortable they are (and she is very picky about the comfort level of her shoes), and then how she'd like to buy another pair in black (the above is taupe), I agreed that I would probably wear them, too!   The next … [Read more...]

Kim buys boc by Born Jami Loafers

boc by born brown Jami loafers from dsw photo

I needed a little retail therapy last week, so my friend Tracy and I headed to Sioux City for a little shopping, lunch and fun. And I don't think I've ever come away from Sioux City without buying a new pair of shoes! This day was no different as I scored these boc by Born Jamie Loafers for only $20 from Gordman's, after mark-downs and using a 20% off Gordmans printable coupon.   Considering these retail for $80 (currently $49.95 from DSW.com), how could I resist?! As you can see by my … [Read more...]
