I’m pretty picky when it comes to shoes. THEY MUST BE COMFORTABLE OR I WILL NOT WEAR THEM. Not even on the red carpet.
(You don’t want to know what’s happening underneath that dress.)
Bensimon sneakers are a French woman’s staple, so you know they’re chic. I was worried they would result in blisters or make me look like I have clown feet. The only issue is there’s not much of an arch, but I have taken many long walks in these without any problems. You can buy them on ShopBop. (I don’t recommend getting them in white because I looked like I was doing ER Rounds and returned them.)
Another style I’m really happy with:
I can walk all the way to Larchmont and back in them, plus they go with everything! This is the “Sara” style which is no longer available; the closest thing I found currently online are their “Tasha” ones.
