When I was a stay at home/work from home mom I didn’t worry about the shoes I wore. I had a pair of sneakers and a pair of winter boots. That was all I needed. I just needed something to run errands, shop and take my kids to/from school, friend’s homes and activities.
I returned back into the workforce last year after being a stay at home/work from home mom for almost 18 years – yes, YEARS! Needles to say it took a lot of getting used to. I suddenly had to be someplace at a specific time, answer to someone else, drive in inclement weather and learn to balance work and home (plus blogging).
I had to revamp my wardrobe too. No more “knock around the house” clothes. I needed things that were professional looking, yet comfy to wear. The job I had required me to be on the floor a lot (playing with children). My new job requires that I play with kids too, just not on the floor (they are older children).
Thankfully I am still able to wear sneakers, but since I am dressing a bit nicer I need shoes that are professional looking, fashionable and most importantly comfortable.
One of my favorite brand for such shoes is Aerosoles. My new favorite, especially for the fall season, is their shoe called “Lantern.” Lantern is available in a variety of colors/patterns.
I’m a simple person so I like things that will go with most of my wardrobe. For that reason I opted to get Lantern in basic black.
According to the brand;
A cushy, scored sole and a memory foam footbed offer you a platform of cool comfort in this 1½” wedge slip-on loafer we’ve dubbed Lantern. Versatility galore so you can wear this style with everything. Stitch ’N Turn technology gives you a feeling of the greatest flexibility when you step.
What I like about these shoes is that they are SO COMFORTABLE. They were comfortable from the first time I slipped them on my feet. Unlike other shoe that need to be “broken in” before they feel comfortable. Aerosoles shoes are always comfortable from the very first step (providing you are wearing the correct size/width for your foot of course).
You can feel the memory foam footbed. It’s like walking on a pillow. It’s great for people who are on their feet a long time. The footbed also has a sueded sock and lining to add even more luxurious comfort when you are wearing the shoes.
Aerosoles shoes have a unique “diamond flex sole,” which helps to disperse friction away from your feet which also adds to them being so comfortable.
The shoes are also flexible which means you can comfortably stand on your tippy toes if you need to. Being “vertically challenged” (aka – short) I find that I often have to stand on my toes to reach things. These shoes are flexible/bendy enough to allow me to do what I need to do in comfort, as well as the shoes remaining on my feet and not sliding off.
I like these shoes not only for their amazing comfort, but also because they are great for both casual and dressy occasions. You can easily wear these shoes to work and then out to dinner or drink with friends. They are also perfectly fine to run errands or go shopping. They are a very versatile shoe and style.
They have a thick sole which gives you a wee bit of height too. Not much, but much more than wearing a flat.
I also like that I can wear these barefoot, with stockings or socks. Like I said, they are versatile.
These are just one of many great shoe options from Aerosoles. Whether you are looking for flats, sneakers, sandles, boots or heels – Aerosoles has the shoe for you. They have so many wonderful colors, styles and designs to choose from.
Aerosoles shoes are available online as well as retail locations.
