Mint-y New Shoes
Happy Monday, ladies!
The stylish folks at ShoeMint asked me to try a pair of their shoes recently and how could I refuse - pretty shoes for me, yes, please! ShoeMint shoes are designed by Rachel Bilson and Nicole Chavez and made by Steve Madden.
ShoeMint is part of the StyleMint and JewelMint family and the concept is the same. Sign up by creating your style profile and checking out a selection of shoes. It's free to sign up and if you buy shoes, they're $79.98 each, which includes shipping - you can return or exchange your shoes for free too. It is shoe club, but there's no obligation to buy and you can cancel your membership anytime.
I selected the Rosemary pump in snake from their February collection. For an almost 4" heel with no platform, I was really surprised at the comfort. The insoles are pretty well padded and the embossed leather is structured yet soft. I found the shoes to run a tad large, though not enough to make me want to size down - there's just enough room for me to add a heel grip if I needed it. I don't usually wear a heel this high that isn't stacked or without a platform, but I trotted around in these a bit over the weekend to break them in and my feet survived surprisingly well (don't get me wrong though, it's still a 4" heel, so I ain't gonna go spend the day at Disney World in these babies on or anything ...)
