... Or worst enemy.
You all know the feeling of achy feet, knowing that you're going to have blisters on your soles the second you take off that beautiful, yet completely impractical, pair of shoes. I've been on the hunt for the perfect mix of aesthetics and functionality, and I finally think I've found it! Originally, I was looking at a lot of 'designer' and 'fancy shoes' companies to make comfortable yet pretty booties, but I remembered back to the pair I could walk miles in: the Nike half-shoe, half-boot slouchy combination!
Rather than get another pair, I opted for a more fashionable option, so I took a chance on the J-41 Mediterranean booties. The fabulous news is that I've walked a few miles in these already since I got them yesterday and it feels as though my feet are walking on pillows! They're highly padded inside.
I was astounded to see how cute these were, realizing that this company usually makes hiking shoes and assorted athletic footwear. I bought them in black from www.6pm.com, however, they ran a size too large (I was lucky I read online beforehand and got myself a 7.5 rather than my usual 6.5). Unfortunately, they can no longer be found there, I got them at a great deal for $60.00 with shipping inclusive but they were immediately sold out (you can try Sears). They're also waterproof, which is great for those of us who live in cities that have daily drizzles, but refuse to wear those cliche rainboots.
