I know I had mentioned in my last post that I was going to do a Kim Kardashian inspired look with the red shoes I had purchased, but the pictures didn’t work out. Saahhrryy!! I may still attempt it in the near future though. Anyway…I wanted to tell you all about this cute pair of shoes I bought and they were very inexpensive! They are the plaid slip-on shoes from Wet Seal and they are only $14.90!
Aren’t they adorable?
I also have these slip on sneakers from Aldo:
I did not pay full price for these, they were on sale I believe for maybe $20 at the time (I bought them a few months ago) and there is only a couple of differences, which are minor to me!
The ones from Aldo do feel thicker, and have more cushion in them. They are quite comfortable to walk in. The plaid shoes from Wet Seal are thinner, and a bit more flimsy. They do not have as much cushion in them, hardly any at all actually. I just wear my insoles to make up for that cushion factor. The size actually runs small also. The aldo shoes are true to size, where in the Wet Seal shoes I had to go up a size larger. (Which didn’t help my Bigfoot complex! Yikes!)
Here are my thoughts: These plaid cuties are great for wearing if you are not doing too much constant walking. I will wear them to run errands, to just hang out, or do almost anything. However, if I have a day planned that involves walking all day, like walking around outlets or something I will opt for something more comfortable. They go great with boyfriend jeans, shorts, crops, pretty much anything except I wouldn’t wear them with too many skirts. I have a look I want to do soon, maybe this weekend? So if you are looking for some cute shoes that are inexpensive but trendy I recommend heading to your local Wet Seal. They had a few different styles and prints to choose from. I want to know from my readers: do you own a pair of slip-on shoes? How do you style them? Leave a comment or send me pics! I’ll feature it on my next blog post!
