What makes a good pair of shoes to you?
For me it is comfort and colourful.
If you’ve been around these parts for a while you will know there is nothing i hate more than uncomfy shoes that need wearing in. I can not stand blisters and painful feet and have given away practically brand new shoes previously after a realy first uncomfortable wear. I don’t want to ahve to spend weeks trying to wear them in, going through the agony and blisters and rub marks. I just want pretty, practical shoes to be good from the off.
So first impressions are important, as i will shun them if they don’t meet those requirements.
We’re busy ladies aren’t we? We don’t have time for wearing in shoes and worse being injured by the vessels in which we encase our feet.
When i first slipped the Moshulu’s on to my feet (straight after i tore open the beautiful present packaging, which honestly felt like such a treat!), no word of a lie, they felt like outdoor slippers. Instant comfort. I actually thought to myself, these are too comfy to be true, they’re bound to rub at some point, but nope, as for the next week i wore the shoes consecutively and let me tell you, not one single rub. They are a sheer delight to wear and are versatile and comfy which i have to say, makes me and my trotters very happy.
Have you ever heard of Moshulu? I had and its a funny story. An old colleague of mine loves the Moshulu Slippers. She claims they are the most comfy, long lasting, hard wearing slippers shes ever worn. She wanted a pair so badly that had sold out online that she tracked them down by calling around a few of their stores. Low and behold a store in west wales had them and sent them to her after she made a quick payment over the phone. Great slippers and customer service.
So that is a testament in itself for the slippers.
How are the shoes i here you ask?
Quite simply they’re fantastic. With a vast array of colours and styles that offer comfort without jeopardising on style they really are a wonderful brand.
Oh and they’re based in Devon, which makes me love them even more.
For me, so far, they have been my summer shoe of choice. I opted for the Cheery Red Tagine flats and they go with just about everything i own (which you’ll soon see). The slip on soft shoes offer support and don’t feel flat to the floor like a a ballet pump. I can literally wear these from 7.30 am, walk around all day and take them off at 8.30pm and not have sore feet at all! Its incredible.
The styles really are happy shoes and that honestly makes me so happy.
So when the lovely guys at Moshulu challenged me to a 1 pair of shoes 5 ways trial, i was so game!
I’ll be honest and say it wasn’t even a challenge really as they go with 98% of my wardrobe so so well.
Plus they work for my lifestyle as a mum constantly on the run.
So this is how i styled them and what for:
A day at the seaside
Super easy to slip on and off, i was grateful to the flats that day. They worked for when i scrambled over the rocks, walked down the promenade and then quicly slipped them off for a quick paddle.
I paired them with my linen yellow sweater as it was a bit breezy to begin with and some denim shorts. Simply beachy style.
We’ve all had to dress to that annoying bracket at some point haven’t we. The ‘smart-casual’ mean you need to basically cover all options. I donned a smart boucle jacket and a red breton top to cover my smart-casual needs that day of a quick meeting with the accountant. The shoes added the final pop of red and tied the outfit all together. I love how these shoes are legitimately smart and yet feel like i’m walking around in slippers.
A bit of casual for the weekend, there’s nothing nicer than an easy breezy look. I kept things simple with a chambray short and my floaty polka dot skirt with pockets. The cherry red shoes add a lovely finishing pop of interest to a neutral outfit.
I love an outfit that can work for a day out but also comfy enough to walk the dogs. There aren’t many pairs of shoes i feel comfy enough to do that in, but these work a dream! My khaki jumpsuit is basically like a glorified baby-grow too, so it was definitely comfort all round. The khaki and red combination is also an absolute favourite.
The Dressy Option
An evening out for me is usually laid back but i still like to don a dress and feel pretty. Sometimes we go for a walk after a meal so its nice to know i can walk in my shoes and i won’t be complaining all the way.
In a nutshell, these shoes work with pretty much everything, shorts, skirts, dresses, jeans, trousers and jumpsuits.
Whats not to love about that eh?! A pair of shoes for all occasions and comfy too!
