Shoe Envy! – Fashionable Footwear for Summer, Back to School and Beyond


Aerosoles Chlothesline

I have to admit that I used to not be much of a shoe person. I know plenty of people who go crazy over shoes. They have them in different shapes, colors, heel heights and more. They even have shoes to match their handbags, outfits and belts!

My daughter is a shoe person. I joke with her that I am missing the “shoe gene”. It must have skipped over me and moved on to her. My daughter is all about shoes.

I used to be happy with a good pair of sneakers and a pair of black flats for “dressy occasions”. Not anymore. Suddenly I am totally into shoes. I have Aerosoles to thank for that.

Aerosoles sent me two pairs of shoes to review – one which is ideal for summer and the other is perfect for back to school time. Of course both shoes can be worn beyond summer and school time.

Aerosoles Clothesline

The first pair of shoes I received is are the Aerosoles Chlothesline.

Zip right into style and comfort with Chlothesline. With a bold front zipper taking center stage this flat sandal features scores of straps with a picnic-basket-like weave pattern.  Flexible rubber sole with diamond pattern and a cushioned footbed are always Aerosoles comfortable.

My first thought when I saw these shoes was that they reminded me of something the Romans would wear.

The shoes feature a working zipper on top. I have chubby feet and I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to zip them up right away. It would have been OK because my daughter wears the same size shoe, so I know she could wear them if they didn’t fit me. I also worried that they would be a bit snug all around.

To my surprise the shoes fit me perfectly! I can even zip them up with no hesitation. They are even extremely comfortable. It’s like they were made specifically for my feet.


Unlike other shoes that need to be worn several times to stretch them out and make them comfy – these shoes were comfy from the start. They felt as if I have worn them for weeks already.

I received the tan colored Chlothesline shoes which seem to match well with almost everything in my wardrobe. They are great shoes to wear for running errands, hanging out at the boardwalk or even for a fancy formal dinner. They are very versatile. They can easily transition from day time to night time.

They are cushioned so they are even comfortable to wear when you need to do a lot of walking.

My teenager daughter loves these shoes too. I guess that means they are very fashionable in a teen’s eyes too.

The Chlothesline is available in sizes 5 – 12 including some half sizes. They are available in three colors – Faux Red Leather, Faux Black Leather and Faux Tan Leather. They are also available in medium and wide widths. They retail for $59.00.

My daughter really wanted me to give her these shoes, that is until she saw the next pair of shoes I was sent to review. I don’t blame her – they are AWESOME!


I received the Aerosoles Fitness shoe. Fitness seems like an odd name for this shoe. I can’t imagine working out in it.

Pump up the volume on your sporty wear. Trendy and super hot, this casual suede style captures the latest looks with its 2¼” covered wedge and lace-up entry. With a stitched upper, a cushioned insole and a flexible rubber sole with diamond pattern, you have the best of both worlds – style and comfort.

I received the pair of Fitness shoes in black suede. I like that because black matches with everything.

Fitness shoes have a laced front (like a sneaker) and a zipper on the side. They also have a bit of a heel. I love their unique look.

These shoes are amazing! The moment my daughter put them on they made her legs look longer (my daughter is petite in height).

Aerosoles Fitness Shoe

My daughter wore these shoes with denim cut off shorts and a white t-shirt. The whole outfit looked amazing, although a bit too sexy for my husband’s tastes.

My daughter also tried them on with a pair of black jeans and they worked perfectly with those too. I think she could even get away with wearing these with a nice skirt too.

Aerosoles Fitness

I personally have not tried these shoes on myself. When my daughter laid eyes on them she fell in love with them. I doubt I will ever get a chance to try them on. She’s even going to wear them on her first day back to school.

She tells me the shoes are comfy. I doubt she would wear them often if they were uncomfortable. She also tells me that they feel like she’s worn them for weeks (similar to what I said about the Chlothesline shoes). She said they didn’t give her blisters on her heel like she sometimes gets when she wears new shoes until they get stretched out.

Fitness Aerosole

These shoes are very fun and fashionable. You can dress them up and dress them down too. I think she will be able to wear these year round too, although I would spray them with something to protect the suede from getting wet. She would be devastated if these shoes get ruined.

The Fitness shoes are available in sizes 5 – 12 including some half sizes. They are available in different colors – Black Sued, Blue, Brown and Green. They are only available in medium width and retail for $99.00.

I found out that there is an Aerosoles store in our local mall. I am excited about that and plan on checking them out as soon as the kids go back to school and I can find some “me time”. It’s unfortunate that we’re moving in a couple of months. I hope the mall up where we are moving to have an Aerosoles store.

Thankfully you can always purchase shoes online at www.Aerosoles.com. You can also find the brand on Facebook, Twitter and for all the shoe loving people who are reading this post – Pinterest too! There are A LOT of shoes on their Pinterest page. 🙂

What do you think about the Chlothesline and Fitness shoes from Aerosoles? Feel free to comment and share your thoughts.

  2. Elisabeth says:

    Those sandals are so cute!

  3. Love Aerosoles, and don’t have a shoe like this with a zipper on top. Very unique. Still hot here, in the 80s so I can’t look at boots without sweating!

  4. I’ve never had a pair of Aerosoles, but I might give them a try.

  5. I love these sandals so much. Totally different with the zippers on the top. I really like the style of them. The boots are different with the heel on them to. I will have to check these out. thanks for the pictures and info on them

  6. That sneaker is seriously cute! Ive been wanting a wedge sneaker but just havent been confident enough to try that trend. These look like something I would actually wear and not be self-conscious!

  7. They are both cute! I have owned Aerosole shoes in the past and I love how comfortable they are!

  8. Aerosoles are great and comfortable shoes

  9. I had to laugh when I saw the title of this blog post: Shoe Envy. And after seeing and reading about the cool Aerosoles you and your daughter got, I must say I now have shoe envy. LOL! I’ve never had a pair of Aerosoles, but for me, comfort is the first thing I look for in a shoe, so I’ll keep that brand in mind in the future. Thanks for the review.

  10. The Aerosoles Chlothesline shoes look cute, I would wear them. Aerosoles tend to be very comfortable, and comfortable shoes that are also stylish are a definite plus.
