Too Many Shoes? Impossible!

Naturalizer.ca had a fab sale and being the good consumer that I am, I jumped right on board. I had been eyeballing a few pairs of shoes for a while and when I saw the sale prices, combined with a 20% off coupon code and free shipping, I couldn't resist.

The first two pairs are great additions to my casual wardrobe. I love the zipper on the first pair and the cute X-stitching on the second pair.

The third pair fills a hole in my shoe collection - I really needed a pair of grey shoes and this pair is so charming with the black accents (that look like they were cut with pinking shears) and the tie in the front.

The fourth and fifth pair were no-brainers. I seem to have an obsession with Oxford style shoes lately. Observant readers will recognize the fifth pair as the burgundy version of the Oxfords I bought a few weeks ago.

The sixth pair is so wonderful. The luscious bordeaux colour, the combo of leather and suede, the stitching detail and the elegant heel shape all combine into a stunning pair of shoes.


I always used to think of Naturalizer as the shoe company for the (older) woman more concerned about comfort than style. However, I am loving the offerings from Naturalizer the past couple of years - the styling has really been exceptional. And there has been no loss of comfort - I cannot recommend the N5 Comfort Elements enough. Not to mention that I can get these fab shoes in wide widths (my feet have become wider over the years - I think it's all the standing and walking I do while teaching every day), so no more pinched toes. I really should look into buying stock in this company - I certainly do my share to make them profitable!

What a great haul of shoes! Naturalizer does have a matronly image, but the newer styles are really nice!

I love them, especially the gray pair. You can never have enough shoes--I have bought 2 pairs in the last week: one on sale and, *coughs*, one not on sale.

One never has too many shoes ;D I only recently threw out a pair of ankle boots to replace them with 2...

oooh, I would wear all of them. I have noticed the same thing about Naturalizer- over the last few years they are offering more current styles. Smart move on their part!

Super cute shoes! Love the gray ones especially.

The black and grey ones are my favs, but anything that is stylish and comfortable is good in my book!

There is no such thing as too many shoes! I love the last pair and I think I need a pair of lace up oxfords for next winter. I think I want the fourth pair, I love the shape of the toe.

Love love your choices, especially the oxfords! I have a pair of vintage Laura Ashley lace-up oxfords made in Italy that look just like #4. Those will never go out of style.
