Living in NYC, my shoe situation has changed drastically. I can't really wear Loubou's hiking up my six flights of stairs or running for cabs and subways. I guess I could, but the real shift is I won't. I'm over being uncomfortable for fashion!
Screw spending my savings on the Isabel Marant wedge anything - those puffy space age sneaks seemed more trend than timeless to me, so I decided to fashion hack my Converse All Stars and other flats in my shoedrobe. You can pay $5.00 for these inserts that will make you two inches taller, or create your own with these. In total, with the Converse sneaks and inserts, my wedge sneakers cost me $25.00. I can also reuse the insert for my loafers and flat boots!
Have you heard of Newbark? It's an LA based accessory brand. They make KILLER loafers and boots that the Olsen Twins plus other style icons wear. Pictured top left and my my instagram. Cozy insoles and the best flats around.
