The Great American Shoe Hunt

I'm still on the endless shoe quest. The best part about blogging about it and telling anyone who will listen, is that I get all sorts of recommendations. The latest one came from my friend Marlaina.

She said she was recently in New York City and saw many people wearing Alparagatas; apparently, they're all the rage in Manhattan. Alparagatas can only be found at
TOMS. And they come in all different colors, including silver!

The company was founded on a very basic premise;
One For One. For every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair to a child in need. Can't beat that deal. You get comfy shoes and you're a humanitarian.

I don't think they'd go with any of the outfits I'm planning for Italy, but I'm seriously considering the burlap ones in the picture.

They're so Argentinian-farmer-chic.

I think these are totally cute, very boho. They would go great with jeans or capris. I could also see you getting great use out of these while driving, like when you stop, they seem to comfy. You should get some and let me know :)

These are SO popular in NYC. It's mostly the yuppy-yoga type people that sport these shoes, but that's not to say anyone can't pull them off. I've seen some cute ones, and since there's a good cause behind it makes it that much more interesting to wear...:-) let me know which ones you get.
