We live in a small house. It is cosy. Sometimes a little too cosy. But cosy all the same.
Such cosiness means that I have had to get particularly clever about storage. And by clever I mean cunning.
See, it may be no state secret that I love shoes but what I do try to keep secret is the precise number of said shoes in my possession.
This is not such an easy feat (pun intended). I have garnered more than my fair share of space under the marital bed. I have slowly inched my way across to Mr SY’s side of the martial wardrobe.
But no matter how full my shoebox life seems to get, there is always room for another pair.
This year I opened my shoe mind and collection to Rockport shoes and I can tell you that it has been nothing short of a shoe revelation.
Who honestly knew that you could combine the technology of an Adidas runner into a high heel without it looking like something only found on an ageing rapper.
Not me, that’s for sure.
But I’m seriously hooked. You can have a look-see at the heels that got me hooked. I featured them here and have worn them many times since for occasions that required me to stand for considerable amounts of time. They have passed the foot comfort test every time.
From Rockport: the philosophy is simple: Walkability. We are about making the most walkable shoes in the industry. Our shoes deliver on their promise to make style comfortable and enable professionals to look good longer.
Just quietly, Mr SY is a lot taken with Rockport too. He’s the king of casual Friday at his office in some very cook suede loafers. And he has is eye on a pair of boat shoes for Christmas.
So, how could Rockport shoes fit into your or your man’s shoe life?
I thought I’d take you on a little shoe styling adventure … drum roll please … and make sure you keep reading for details on how you could be styling it up in Rockport this summer.
