I’m a flat-shoes woman largely out of consolation, however I’ve slowly been warming as much as heeled boots. They’re sturdier, cozier, and total rather more interesting than regular heels supported by flimsy sticks (although helpful, maybe, for sudden fight). I lengthy related Clarks with sensible, boring sneakers, primarily as a result of I’ve solely been of their shops with my mother and father (sorry, Mother and Dad). So final winter when my roommate bought a pair of cute heeled booties, I did a double take when she advised me they had been from Clarks! Then I purchased the identical pair as a result of I figured she wasn’t the sort to hate me for copying her.
These infants have smooth cushioning inside them, so my ft really feel cherished and supported. I assume cushioning is widespread for Clarks, however not so far as my sneakers go. Keep in mind once I advised you I nearly solely put on flats? Yeah, zero help. I additionally like that the heels are ever-so-slightly slanted; on the opposite finish of the stick-to-block spectrum, I am additionally not a fan of chunky, rectangular-shaped heels. I would like my heels to be stylish however sturdy, which these undoubtedly are. Additionally, that is the one pair of pointed-toe sneakers I’ve ever owned that I preferred (rounded toes are often my jam), however the pointedness works higher right here and makes a complicated assertion. The laces add a pleasant contact, and I have never had any issues with them coming undone.
I often put on them with tights, à la in my overview picture, and so they’re stupidly comfy to put on all day. I’ve but to search out socks which might be skinny sufficient, do not present, and in addition do not slide off my ft, however that clearly hasn’t stopped me from sporting them on a regular basis. I like these booties to items. And at 5’5″, sporting heels that I do not need to fling off after 30 minutes makes me really feel like I can tackle the entire rattling world. (PS: I bought my common dimension, a 6.5, and so they match completely!) —Sarah Han
