I’m addicted to shoes.

I have a problem. And the problem is the shoes. You see? It would have taken two laundry baskets to hold all the shoe love you see here. I stopped at one, it seemed excessive enough. I laid them all out on the dining room table for you to see. It’s a problem. I just can’t figure out which ones to part with, I love them all. I need your help sorting them out. Which ones do I donate, give…

thrift store boots.

Remember when I talked about the gorgeous boots I found at a thrift store in the East Village in NYC a couple weeks ago?

It’s hard for me to find a pair of Nine West shoes I don’t love. Nine times out of ten when I’m shoe shopping and I pick…

birkenstock sandals.

I’m the child of two hippies, so it’s no surprise that I’ve always loved Birkenstock’s. I mean I’m literally from a family of tie dye wearing, granola eating, Volkswagen van driving, hippies. It goes without saying that I’ve always had a pair of Birkenstock’s in my closet. They’ve never been particularly stylish, but they’re undeniably comfortable and when you’re doing lots of hiking, camping, and granola eating, you need comfortable shoes. I’m telling you, the winds of change have come…

great shoes for kids.

Once I had C I finally understood why legions of moms complained about how difficult it is to find suitable, cute, sturdy shoes that don’t have some kind of truck or superhero emblazoned across the side. Did I mention sturdy? My little C is somewhat of a product tester for durability. The boy can destroy a shoe in ten days flat. Enter Pediped {do you hear the choirs singing halleluia?}.

snow boots for women.

Kaska $179.95 {via Sorel} Am I the only one who thought Sorel boots were beyond help? That the only reason one would ever wear them was out of sheer frozen-toe desperation? I had no idea they were so stylish now. I mean, flat out cute. The kind of cute that makes you wish you lived in Utah in March. Well, let’s not get carried away now, Utah in March is pretty Grey and snowy and I don’t want to wish…
