You know when you get a new pair of shoes and you’re super excited to slip them on and just show the world your new kicks? And then you remember that your feet hate you and your need for stylish footwear and love to get all cut up and blistered just to prove to you that comfort is more important than personal style? Add on top of that now it’s spring and you want to wear no shows which are great because you can’t see them, but then that usually means that the backs of your shoes just cut into your ankles. Sheesh, if I had a dollar for each of the times it’s felt like I’ve almost severed my Achilles tendon from a new pair of leather shoes… I’d have like a hundred dollars (good thing I have a day job).
Since I’ve obviously never learned to take it easy when breaking in a pair of shoes I buckled up my new Halsey shoe from CAT Footwear and headed out to enjoy running around town getting things done. I am proud to report that my Achilles tendon is not only intact but made it through the day completely unscathed. Not only are these shoes comfortable but I love their unique look. I own the Halsey boot and I was excited to see what the buckle closure looked like on a oxford and I’ve got to say, I’m digging it. They remind me of my old velcro shoes I had in elementary school but these look so much nicer. These have and will continue to be worn on repeat all spring and summer (and I think into fall and winter) long.
