Did I just say that? Comfortable heels? YES!
Whenever I want to #girlboss it, I throw on a pair of heels. I have mixed feelings about them, though! On one hand, the added height gives me more presence, I stand a little straighter, and they really sharpen an outfit instantly. That’s why I wear them in #girlboss mode. But after a while my feet start hurting, and it’s hard to feel like a boss!
When Naturalizer showed me these Michelle pumps, I appreciated the classic design with the slight platform. The simple and timeless style is exactly the kind of shoe I go for. But I didn’t understand how it was any different than other shoes I already had–until I stuck my foot in them!
These have a cushioned footbed, some wonderful heel support, and a little arch support thanks to Naturalizer’s new premium N5 contour technology. They’re also extremely easy to walk in despite the 3 inch heel because they are fairly flexible and they have that 1/2 platform. That thing makes a HUGE difference! These don’t feel like 3″ heels at all. The material itself feels very sturdy but not stiff so they don’t hurt my toes, which is something I’ve been paying attention to as I’ve matured my shoe collection over the last year.
This shoe comes in 9 colors (HERE), and today I’m styling navy for a workwear look. I love navy with white and tan, so I took my favorite tan pants and mixed neutrals. (BTW, the lighting in these pics don’t do the color of the pants justice. I bought them 2 years ago and have gotten asked about them almost every time I’ve shown them in the past. They appear to be back this season (!) or at least the updated version is–not sure. Find them HERE.) Anyway, I then bookended this look with a navy blazer and the comfy navy pumps to tie the outfit together. It’s a nice trick for pulling an outfit together!
For these shoes I’m normally size 8.5-9 and wearing these in 8.5. If you’re intrigued but hesitant, don’t worry! Naturalizer is offering a 30 day guarantee on the Michelle pump right now for a limited time. If you don’t love them, you can return them. They’ll even send you a pre-paid return shipping label! Check out all the colors, read the hundreds of awesome reviews about them, and read about the 30 day guarantee HERE!
Like I said, they come in 9 colors, so later I’ll be showing the Michelle pump in red suede. YAY FOR CUTE COMFY HEELS!
