Comfortable Women’s Shoes | Review of Born Charisma T-Strap



When facing a closet full of open-toed sandals this morning, I reached way back and pulled out my Born Charisma T-strap pumps. They've got a sandal-ish look to them, but serve the purpose of dressing up my feet for church in spite of my non-pedicured toes. Although the heel is a bit high for all-day wear (I'm speaking for myself, although some of you would manage just fine), I find the Born Charisma to cover all the other comfort bases: roomy toe box (doesn't cut into bunions), nicely padded footbed, and forefoot platform provides height without the feel of a four inch heel! 
Stylistically, I'm quite fond of the hand-sewn stitching, teardrop cut-outs and vintage-look t-strap of the Born Charisma. 

Being that my shoe collection overshadows my meager clothing wardrobe currently during these days of financial frugality, I was thrilled to pair two pieces that were never  intended to work together; my $8 sundress from ebay and the light green floral cardigan from Gap Outlet (under $15). Although I'm becoming more accustomed to mixing colors, I'm still a bit leary of how to mix patterns and not look garish. I think this works…

Where to buy the Born Charisma (whole sizes only, order up if half size):

Sizes are limited as this shoe came out last season. If you like the look of the Charisma but can't find your size, try the Born Finney or Gaga, a new styles for fall.

Regarding the Teva contest–Thank you all for entering, I'm in the process of counting up entries, and firing up the random number generator! Winner announced in tomorrow's post.

    I know just what you mean … it’s so nice to have a couple of sandal-y feeling closed-toe shoes for days when you don’t want to expose your toes!
