I don’t know anyone who is more picky with shoes than me. I demand several things from my shoes:
They better be damn comfy
They better look nice
They better be shoes I can wear for more than an hour
When I find a brand I love, or a pair I love – it’s not unheard of for me to stock up and buy several pairs in different colours. KEEN is one of those brands. They are my favourite autumn / winter shoes – and they are perfect for city-breaks and weekends away at this time of year.
My favourite pair at the moment (and the pair I lived in during our recent trip to NYC) are these adorable little East Side Booties from KEEN. They feel like you’re walking on air and have this magic padding in the heel which cushions every step. They’re light and flexible enough to wear all day long, without your feet getting too hot.
I got so many compliments on these too – during our NYC holiday several people came up and asked me where they’re from. Shoes that earn compliments are definitely a winner in my books.
You can browse the entire range of KEEN shoes here – they have lots of great styles, from heavy winter boots to lighter every-day shoes (like the ones I’m wearing).
In the summer, I’m already planning to buy some of their lighter sneaker-style shoes (photos below) from their range, as they’ll be perfect for keeping my feet comfy when running errands, or going for a city stroll.
