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.
