I stopped wearing high heels when I was pregnant for obvious reasons. My son is three years old already but I have yet to wear a pair of heels even on the formal events that we go to. Being a mom to an active explorer has taught me that I should be alert and prepared to chase him wherever he runs to – all the time. But, that doesn’t mean that I need to sacrifice style for comfort!
So, when we were preparing for my brother-in-law’s wedding in the last quarter of 2015, I was looking for a classy pair of shoes that will match the pastel-colored dress that I bought online. Wearing heels to match my outfit and suit the occasion is not an option for me as I have explained earlier. Also, our little boy will march down the aisle as the ring bearer and my husband and I have devised a plan that will make him enjoy and feel comfortable during his walk. It will be our son’s first and I have to be ready in case things get awry. I need to be comfy in my own shoes enough to carry him as much as he needs to or take off after him.
Shopping online from trusted and reliable sellers has brought a lot of convenience for me. I was checking my Instagram feed and came across Shoes Is You. This new IG-based store has a selection of flats, slip-ons and slides. I had my eyes on the Pointed Martina Flats as it perfectly suit my needs. I’ve been wanting to wear pointy shoes as I feel that they exude elegance and add glamour to an outfit. The Martina’s off white color makes it very versatile because I can wear it with anything from my humble wardrobe. I also like Martina’s design that leaves an opening on the arch area. It allows my feet to breathe and makes walking in this footwear very comfortable. On the day of the wedding, with preparations that started as early as 4AM and had a celebration ’til 2PM, I did a lot of moving around in my new shoes. I chased little boys running around; helped the flower girl break her fall; and walked around carrying my napping toddler! With all these, I have anticipated to have cramps or have pain on my toes. I have experienced such when wearing shoes, be it heels or flats, for an extended period of time. With the Pointed Martina Flats, I was surprised and very thankful to have not experienced any of them! Big thanks to Joy of @shoesisyou for my stylish and ultra comfy Pointed Martina Flats!
