Miz Mooz... A new permanent fixture on my feet



Miz Mooz graciously gave me these gorgeous brogues from their fall/winter 2010 line. I was immediately excited when I opened the bright orange box to find exactly the shoe style that I have been on the hunt for over the last year. Yes, I have found a lot of brogues on my hunt but each one always had something missing. Whether the sole was too thin, the toe too wide, or the price too high I just couldn't find the perfect pair. So, I must say that although these seemed perfect on the surface I knew there had to be a catch. I've had a run of bad luck with purchasing uncomfortable shoes lately so I was prepared for them to be stiff, squeaky, or worst of all only comfortable for short distances. Being that my primary transportation around the city is my feet I took these lovelies on the ultimate test run last weekend; a full day of walking around Seattle. I packed a pair of Toms in my bag assuming that even at their most comfortable these shoes would insist on being removed after a couple hours. Don and I went to breakfast, then a movie, there was a period of time perusing the market, then lunch came and went, steep roads were climbed both downtown and on my way back home up Capitol Hill, and the next thing I knew I was walking in the door at the end of a long day with the shoes still just as comfortable as when I left. So it's official, I have been given what can only be considered a complete footwear miracle... A shoe that isn't a sneaker, is comfortable to walk in, looks good with just about anything and on top of all that is under $80. Finally, something a bit dressy to wear when I'm walking from here to there.

You can buy Miz Mooz shoes online but I highly recommend taking a trip over to West Seattle and checking them out at Clementine on California Ave. They are a tiny shop so they carefully select each shoe that they carry. I've loved every shoe I have taken home from Clementine. They also have a great blog where they post the new styles that they get in as well as upcoming sales and specials.

Holy shiz! I've been looking at these the last few months too, but in tan! Are the Miz Mooz comfortable? Some of their styles are ify, and I'm keen on comfort.
