Obsessed with these suede booties by Sam Edelman - Petty

Happy Friday! I've got a slightly different review for you all today. I've been looking for a new pair of shoes for a while for work and haven't had any luck all summer. Since the weather is now cooler I switched my focus from sandals to booties and found an amazing pair by Sam Edelman. I have a few requirements when it comes to footwear. They must be comfortable and by this I mean they have to be something I can wear all day with ease. I don't have a job where I have to stand a lot, but I do walk quite a bit around the office. Even though I'm short and can use any extra height I can get, the heel can not be any higher than 1.5 inches. I don't have high tolerance for foot pain. Actually scratch that.  Let's actually make it zero tolerance for foot pain because I'm a big baby. Lastly, it needs to be versatile enough that I can wear it with any of my work pants and yet casual enough for jeans and possibly leggings. I have found the perfect pair! Dru

For boots these Blondo over the knee boots look exactly like my Stuart Weitzman 50/50 boots that I paid a ton of money for. I tend not to wear high heels which is probably not the norm, but I just can't stand pain in my feet. I'm a super wimp!

Footwear Review Nike Flyknit Lunar, Nike Free Run, Ugg Ayden Sandal!

Let me just say I'm a fan of Nike.  I own 3 pairs of Flyknit Lunars .  The first two pairs I ordered my usual size 5.5 and they fit like a glove.  However after just a few months of wear they developed a hole where my big toe is.  I use these for running and for everyday walking.  I will also admit that I walk a lot.  When I lived in Boston it was normal for me to walk about 5 miles a day.   In NYC you walked everywhere so reaching my daily 10,000 steps wasn't very difficult if I wanted to.  Adding running into the mix and there is a lot of wear and tear.  However I would expect these to last longer than a few months.  I'll admit that a hole in the sneaker is not really a big deal.  No one would probably notice except myself. My husband suggested that maybe they were too small, and I should order the next size up.  I'm hardly ever a size 6 in anything, but I said sure, why not?  I ordered another pair in a size 6 and sure enough 3 months later, I got a small hole.  So
