*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*
Diane requested a few picks for some bold, funky shoes that are also comfortable, so here we go:
OTBT Springfield – was $105, now $29.11 – $99
This style is an OTBT classic, so if you love the shape but don’t dig this color or the tooled leather detailing, fear not. You have 28 other choices from metallic leather to floral textile to nubby tweed. This shoe is highly rated overall, but sounds like a few styles have some quality issues that can be addressed by contacting OTBT directly. We sold these at Corset when I was working there, and I never saw any construction or materials issues myself. Available in U.S. sizes 5.5 – 11. Size availability varies by color. Want something flatter, or need a wide or narrow width? This pair of Trotters has a similar design. For closed back, try these Propets.
Comfortview Dana Slip-On Sneaker – was $75, now $39.77 – $47.62
I was thrilled to find this option, since patterned slip-on sneaks are SUPER trendy right now and Comfortview shoes include design features that the Aldo and Steve Madden versions surely lack. With this pair, you get a memory foam insole, comfort grip, and a variety of widths. And they’re vegan-friendly! Available in this snake print as well as solid black, solid silver, or solid white in U.S. sizes 7 – 12, including wide widths. For smaller sizes in snake, try this pair.
Bernie Mev Fame Sandals – was $80.95, now $56.85 – 77.95
I’ve been fascinated by stretchy woven Bernie Mev shoes for about a year now. Several comfort-focused shoe retailers stock this brand, and the shoes get high marks for comfort from a variety of customers. They’re synthetic, so vegan-friendly, and this pair has a sturdy platform with a slight incline. If this gray pair bores you, this style is also available in two bright multicolored versions, pewter, bronze, black with white flecks, and solid black. Available in Euro sizes 36 – 41. Couldn’t find similar construction in wide, but this pair has a similar shape and is available in C/D widths.
Clarks Claribel Fame – was $275, now $127.49
with code VETS
Huh. Two pairs with “fame” in the name tonight. Totally unintentional. These Clarks may be the closest thing to a flatform that I’ve ever posted. There’s an incline there, but it’s very slight. This pair is quite chunky, and if you’ve got light skin that ankle strap will definitely cut off your leg line … but you’ll certainly look modern and chic. Worn with full-length pants that cover the strap, these will just look like sleek wedges. Available in this black as well as a putty gray in U.S. sizes 6 – 10, including some wide widths. Size availability varies by color.
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for comfy, funky shoes:
- Tsubo – I don’t wear mine much anymore, but the brand still gets high marks for quality, comfort, and eye-catching design.
- Camper – Lots of quirky, fun designs especially in the Twins line. Warning: Campers run narrow, so they won’t be comfy for anyone with wide feet.
- Miz Mooz – Comfy styles with a retro flair. Love these spiral-design sandals.
