Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Tag Archives: shoes
I’ve been wanting to buy a pair of TOMS shoes for a while … but not from Target. Browsing the shoe department at Tar-jay this weekend, I noticed a cute pair of navy-and-white striped canvas loafers with a straight cut across the top of the foot. Very nautical, very Connecticut. One problem: they look a hell of a lot like TOMS shoes. As you might know, the majority of TOMS shoes are canvas or linen loafers with a distinctive straight cut.
There’s this problem with a lot of high-tops that keeps them from being more prevalent in our wardrobes. It’s called Boat Shoe Syndrome (because we named it that) and it manifests itself by making the shoes way too wide and clunky for our dainty lady feet. These Nike Dunk Skinny High Top Trainers, however, are skinny-fit and, thus, our new faves. The gray check pattern is cool without being too much, and the yellow swoosh is, simply put, just a little badass. Wear them well with skinny jeans and puffy party dresses alike.
