cute sneaks, 10 weeks later

so, last night i caved and ordered those cute hemp sneakers from simple (in cub). i first developed a crush on them a couple of months ago, and i visited them periodically (heh), and now that spring is finally threatening to arrive, i decided to go for it. i love my blackspots muchly, and i wear them lots, but i actually have quite a few brown t-shirts, and i’ve been really wanting a pair of casual sneaks to go with all of my brown/khaki stuff. until now my only shoe options for brown clothes were novacas loafers or some cute 1940s-style pumps, and neither of those work particularly well for casual t-shirt and jeans days.

anyhoodle, because zappos is apparently contracting with superman, i received my shoes this morning. seriously. i ordered them last night, and they were on my porch this morning. i have no idea how this happened, but i’m not complaining.

as is my custom, i opened the box immediately and put them on so i could march around the house. they’re adorable. they have lavender laces, which i hadn’t realized until i saw them in person, but i think it’s ridiculously cute. they’re comfy-cozy. i love them already. the end.

  1. i followed the link to those shoes, and i can see how you would be irresistibly drawn to them- and i didn’t even get to see the lavender laces!
    and yes, i too have heard that superman and zappos entered into a joint venture- coming next, wonder woman and amazon.com are chomping at the bit to finalize their partnership…mark my words, it’ll happen 🙂

  2. thanks for the support! 🙂 i wore them out and about on saturday, even did a fair bit of walking, and they were really comfortable. hooray! and thanks for the link, michelle–i think i’ve checked them out before but not in-depth or seriously. i’ll take another look!
