These shoes were made for walkin'.

I live in Chicago.
I work downtown, and although I take the Metra, and only work three blocks from my train station (and live 1.5 blocks from the station near my house) I don't walk to work in the shoes I plan on wearing for the day (since on an average, my shoes have a 4" heel).

Now, I know that I'm not alone in this, I see many ladies in skirt suits and sneakers. After all, we are walking across rickety bridges, stone paved sidewalks, slick marble decorative walkways, and all kinds of other dangerous paths! And although I love the idea of being fabulous at ALL times, I'm very (semi) practical. I don't wear sneakers (tennis shoes, running shoes, etc.) to work, because I feel like those are for the gym only. (Although I do have a pair silver snake embossed AirForce Ones that my husband literally FORCED me to purchase! Kidding. Force and purchase do not belong together in a sentence...) I do however, have the most comfy pair of "walking" shoes that my husband generously bought for me, then tried to forbid me from wearing. He claims these shoes are the ugliest thing created by man. EVER.

I claim them to be a little slice of heaven designed for my feet. Introducing my CushionAire shoes (the "O" in Cushion is even shaped like a cloud. LOVE.)

Now, to be completely fair, they do look like nurse shoes. But faux snake high gloss nurse shoes! That has to count for something. Or maybe the exact opposite. I don't know. What I DO know, is that my feet thank me every single day.
