Look what the shoe elves brought me!

Hey All!  Today is Free Friday and that means I can post whateva I want.  I had yesterday off and did a little shopping and found some more great shoe bargains!  I just have to share them with somebody!

I've been on a shoe shopping kick for a few weeks now actually.  Being on your feet for 8 to 10 hours a day on a concrete surface and climbing up and down metal stairs to the stock room quickly took a toll on my poor old tooties.  My first shoe purchases were quite conservative looking but very comfortable.

I have several friends who have raved about the comfort of Dansko's.  They are worn quite a bit by those in the medical profession.  They are basically clogs!  I'm not sure how but these shoes really do keep my feet from aching at the end of the day.

I chose this style with a back on the heel mainly because of the stairs.  I didn't want to be sliding out of any shoes coming down the stairs at work.  Look how scuffed up I've already gotten them in just two weeks.  Do any of you own any Dansko's?

Next I purchased these.  They are Clarks.  I learned about these when I did substitute teaching.  All the teachers went on and on about the comfort of Clarks.  I like how the Clarks have a little bit more style.

These are Naturalizers!  I picked them up at TJ Maxx.  I've only worn them a few times because they are not nearly as comfortable as the Dansko's and the Clarks, but I like how they are lower to the ground.  I will most likely use these more for my shopping shoes then work shoes. 

Okay, now to the really fun stuff!

Here's yesterdays finds!

I bought these first yesterday.  They are Baretraps.  Belks is having a huge boot sale and I since I was off yesterday I just had to go.  I instantly fell in love with these.  They are just the style and color I was looking for.  The color is called mushroom.  It's grey with a slightly brownish tint.  It's perfect because it will go with so many things.  I'm sure you noticed there isn't much of a heel either right?  Sorry ladies, I just don't do heels much anymore.  I love, love, love how versatile these are going to be!

Then later in the day I was at Burlington Coat Factory and came across these. I have been wanting a new pair of black boots.  My old ones are too tight on the calves now and pretty worn since I've had them for years.  So when I spied these and saw the price I decided it was time to update my black boots.  I just love how classic these are!  They are from Etienne Aigner.

And here they are!  My little shoe elves!  LOL!
  Seriously though, because I just love to share a bargain, I had to show you a sneek peek at these guys!  Look what I found at Hobby Lobby.  I love elves and these guys were just so adorable!  Even better they were 50% off, so that meant two for the price of one.  What a deal!

Just look at those faces would you!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I have got to get my hands on some Danskos. My fibro issues with the feet have made me graduate even out of Clarks these days. I'll be on the lookout.

    And I love those boots!!

  2. Love, love the boots!! I have a pair of Danskos and did not even know they are popular nursing shoes, until a nurse friend of mine told me, lol. I love mine too. Shoe shopping is always a good thing!!

  3. LOVING the boots, I mean LOVING. I have to get to Belk. Have a great weekend Mary. Rest and enjoy!

  4. What great shoes and boots -- I LOVE Clark's and also have several pairs of Naturalizers and Baretraps! Enjoy :)


  5. Your elves are so cute!!! Love the gray boots! retail therapy is always good!

  6. All of your shoes are wonderful and the boots are super. I went on a sandal shopping spree not too long ago, just couldn't pass up all the end of summer sales. Now I really need to update my winter shoes. Your found some beauties. Hugs, Marty

  7. I was at Belk the other day, as well, looking at boots. The ones I wanted weren't on sale, so I ordered them online. As soon as they arrive I will have two pair of riding boots. I also have a pair of black "booties" (a few inches above the ankle). I LOVE my black riding boots and they are so comfortable I can wear them shopping for hours!(I found them at Marshall's.) I'm hoping the brown riding boots I just ordered are as comfortable.
    Your little elves are cute, too! Have a great weekend!

  8. Love the boots and the elves who brought them!

  9. Send those elves up my way! I need a good deal on boots!

  10. If the elves and boots are missing... don't look in my house!!! So cute!!!! I wear tennis shoes almost all the time because of this darn plantar fascitis I have! I wonder if the dansko's would be good for my horrible feet! Thanks for sharing!
