On-Trend for Spring in Comfortable Rose & Blush Shoes
Have you skimmed the pages of a fashion magazine lately, or walked through a women’s clothing store? If so, you’ve surely noticed that the color rose (and its fairer-skinned cousin, blush) seem to be the colors of the moment. Everything from sweaters to handbags are blooming in this luscious, versatile peachy pink. Since the Barking Dog isn’t one to miss out on trends, we got busy searching and found some great, comfortable rose and blush shoes to keep you stylish! Here are our top five picks:
Fly London Yahl has a cushioned foot bed, stable wedge heel, hook & loop closure for easy on/off, leather lining, and an up-to-the-minute perforated leather upper. If you want to be fashion-forward and comfortable at the same time, Fly London is a brand to know about. Available at Nordstrom,
The Born Jakarta is a fun, flirty cross between a skimmer and an oxford. It has a generously cushioned foot bed and a breathable fabric lining (in an adorable floral print!) for sock-free comfort. Available at Zappos and The Walking Company.
The Earth Caper gets rave reviews for comfort and comes in oodles of colors in addition to this lovely rose. It’s available in sizes 5-12, is surprisingly lightweight, and has quiet rubber soles if you dislike clompy shoes (or need more grip underfoot). Reviewers say the Earth Caper is bunion-friendly and that the well-cushioned foot bed is “like leather marshmallows.” Available from Amazon, Zappos and Nordstrom.
Clarks Alitay Susan looks like a flat, but actually has a hidden 3/4″ wedge which means extra support and flattering height. The Alitay Susan comes in two similar shades: a nude leather with a blush cast and a silver cap toe, and a nude pink leather with a same color patent toe. It’s available in medium and wide widths and has a cushiony OrthoLite foot bed. Available at ClarksUSA.com, Amazon and Zappos.
