Featured Product: Naturalizer Lailah Wedge Sandals
Although I have always liked the idea of espadrilles, I have never owned a pair. I think the reason is because the combination of canvas uppers with a high heel do not always make the most comfortable shoe. I did find these Lailah Wedge Sandals by Naturalizer that I might just have to try on for size next time I stop into Macy's.
What makes these espadrilles different? There are a few features of this shoe that make me think these may be the espadrilles for me . . . a leather upper, a cushioned footbed, and a cork-like heel. The leather upper would not only be more comfortable than canvas, it also makes the shoe less casual. A cushioned footbed is something that many pairs of espadrilles lack. My days of sacrificing comfort for fashion are over! These days, I want both and am not willing to settle for less. The cork heel seems like it would also add to the comfort factor. I own a pair of Naturalizer slip-on sandals with a cork platform heel that could very well be the most comfortable pair of sandals I own.
Let's talk color! The Naturalizer Lailah Wedge Sandals are available in Portrait (beige), Teakwood (brown), Bright Coral, White, and Black. Coral is one of the hot colors for Spring/Summer 2012 and just so happens to be the color I am drawn to the most. My second choice would be either the Black or the Portrait. Which color would you choose?
These sandals retail for $79. Maybe if I wait for them to go on sale, I can buy the Bright Coral, the Black, and the Portrait . . .
