Heels that don't hurt

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Comfortable heels? It may seem like an oxymoron but they really do exist! I recently discovered a new line of shoes called Adrian Allen, which combines comfort with style.
It's no surprise that the company is woman-owned.
Founder Gwen Allen launched Adrian Allen when she became frustrated with the lack of comfy heels on the market. Her vision was to make a line of women's shoes that are stylish but actually wearable! 
Adrian Allen shoes are not inexpensive, but worth every cent.
I will not skimp when it comes to my feet!
Plus when I think of all the money I wasted on cheap uncomfortable heels, I could have had several pairs of Adrian Allen shoes!
Meet Stella. With a 2 1/2'' heel and a 1/2'' platform, these gorgeous "go with everything" shoes have a thick padding from the ball of the foot to the heel.  The leather is soft and subtle and of course I love the styling--isn't the tassel on the back fabulous?
You can wear this shoe with everything from a romper to a little black dress--here I paired Stella with white skinny high-risewhite jeans and a flowy red silk top (similar HERE  HERE and HERE).
A leopard clutch pretty much goes with everything (similar HERE) and an armful of gold bangles (similar HERE under $30) and a simple and sweet necklace is just enough jewelry.
Stella took me from dinner to a walk around Kennebunkport, Maine afterward. Can your heels do that?
Leave it to a woman to design shoes that can actually be worn for more than an hour! Check out the full Adrian Allen line HERE and keep a lookout for "Sara", coming soon to The Midlife Fashionista.  She's a fabulous peep-toe pump!

And finally, a huge thank you to Gwen, owner of Adrian Allen for becoming a shoe contributor to Uncommon Threads. I love businesses with a heart!

    1. Well I have a closet full of uncomfortable heels that I bought at bargain prices. When I add up all those cheap shoes, I could have had 2 pairs of these! I'm older and smarter these days. One pair of great shoes instead of a bunch of $24.99 heels that I can't walk in. Thanks for your comment!! :) XO

  4. This one heals look perfect to wear because as I can see, its bottom is soft and the best materiel is used inside it.

  6. So nice to know someone has designed something that works! I haven't worn heals for years because of the discomfort (I'm 65), but I love heals and I still have good legs and would like to show them off if I could walk and be comfortable!

  7. These shoes have some heft to them and not skimpy with thin soles and leather. I want them in black. I think they would go with everything in black and I want them so bad! However, my husband will not let me spend the money on them. I have a high volume, large foot with large ankles and I think the scale of these would work well with my type of foot. Although they do look very nice on your foot too!
