I need comfortable shoes. During the average day, I walk at least five miles with trips to preschool, the playground, the grocery store, etc. In a previous post, I mentioned that I live in my Dansko clogs, but I have been trying to push myself outside of my comfort zone and recently discovered Mariana by GOLC. GOLC is clog spelled backwards so I don't feel like I am losing anything in comfort...but in terms of fashion, it's a major leap forward. The shoes are made in Brazil and use an eco-friendly vegetable tanning process on the leather that makes the shoes soft and supple. The biggest thing is Mariana makes crazy comfortable high heels - perfect for summer weddings where you can dance the night away. However, the slip-ons have amazing style and are perfect for long days of chasing after the munchkins!
