The favorite holiday of Hallmark and Hershey’s Kisses is just around the corner – yup, Valentine’s Day is almost here. While you might be content to stay in with your love, snuggled up warm in some comfortable slippers, we know that many of you will be heading out on the town for a romantic evening.
We certainly don’t want to see any of you in sky-high stilettos, but we realize you might be craving a little something special for your footwear to give you that extra bit of oomph for your big night. That’s why we’re showcasing our favorite date night shoes! These great shoes are proof that you don’t have to give up sex appeal or sleek style for comfort.
Veria by Earthies
Available in fiery, jaw-dropping red, the Veria is a suede knockout of a shoe. Sophisticated but soft, the Veria’s teardrop cut-out and peep toe shows some skin and a hint of your recent pedicure. You’ll stand tall in a 3 ¼ inch heel, but the ¾ inch platform gives you the height without the added stress on the balls of your feet.
Women love the Veria for its cushioned wellness footbed and amazing arch support. The arch actually helps evenly distribute your weight, from heel to toes. Neuromas? No problem. You’ll be able to dance the night away (or standing waiting for a table if your man forgot to make the dinner reservation). And the shoe’s leather lining wicks away moisture – no sweaty feet here!
Sarenza by Earthies
Say goodbye to foot fatigue and hello to the Sarenza! The Mary Jane pump comes in luxurious suede, which is a total fashion do this year. The instep is adjustable with the eyelet lacing. We love the look of the playful ribbon bow and the golden piping and the feel of the contoured footbed and cupped heel. With a little platform and reasonable height, these pumps are perfect for date with your love muffin, with a retro look that will have all eyes on you - and your feet!
Zambra from Ziera Kumfs
Va-va-voom! These shoes are for the femme fatale in all of you. To the single ladies out there – you’ll have no problem snagging a hot date with a pair of Zambras leading the way. Available in wide and x-wide with ample toe room, this ankle boot offers height without sacrificing support and stability.
The Soft Journey footbeds common in Ziera heels is four layers of bliss: leather, Poron rubber and gel offers cushioning, flexibility and advanced shock absorption. The Zambra’s unique construction encourages a natural gait and good posture. The internal seams are smooth and minimal, allowing for all day activity without any irritation, even with tights or bare legs.
Luma from Naot
The adorable Luma is from Naot’s new heel line, Prima Bella. The whole collection features the brand’s removable, natural cork and memory foam bed that molds to your foot’s shape over time. These shoes are constructed with strength and flexibility in mind
The Mary Jane style comes with a precious leaf-inspired strap and a convenient but unobtrusive Velcro closure. The 2 ¾ inch slightly padded heel will look great with pants or a skirt. The lightweight outsole won’t weigh down your feet – you’ll be able to go from work to dinner and dancing without missing a beat.
