A girl's best friend

Shoes a girls best friend, right after diamonds right?  Remember, I posted about getting a new pair of shoes from on my doorstep a while back.

These beautiful shoes from Online Shoes and  Merrell shoes make me smile.  There functional in one really cute comfortable package. As a girl who tends to by shoes by the way the look - these were an instant hit for me.

These are part of Women's Merrell Shoes, Merrell M-Connect collection - introducing the Merrell Stretch Glove in grey.
I have never worn barefoot shoes before, but I love going barefoot and if the world was a cleaner place would consider it more often.
Details on the  Merrell M-Connect Shoes:

Look stylish while you train in the Merrell Stretch Glove minimalist shoe, part of the Merrell Barefoot collection. Featuring Barefoot strobel construction for durability and flex and an elastic topline for snug comfort, this machine-washable women's mary-jane athletic shoe is constructed from easy-care Lycra®, fabric and synthetic leather; a hook-and-loop strap at the instep provides an adjustable fit. Inside, the microfiber footbed is treated with Aegis® to help maintain freshness, while compression-molded EVA adds an additional layer of protective cushioning. The non-marking Vibram® Serene Glove outsole of the Merrell Stretch Glove minimalist mary jane offers dependable grip without compromising your feel for the ground beneath your feet.
No, I am not a true minimalist runner, but I love them for walking. The feel natural. The one thing that I had to get used to was feeling everything. Not, like a pebble in your shoe, but you could really feel the texture change on the ground.
I have worn these shoes many times since they arrived on my doorstep. I have worn them to work, to the doctors office, out for errands and for more then just an hour at a time. I love wearing them to work, because I can go outside for a quick walk without having to change my shoes. With spring coming I know these will be in rotation for easy lunch time walks.

You can wear them with socks or without with ease. The adjustable strap is Velcro and the back is very flexible for comfort and easy adjustments.   I also love, that after a full day of wearing them to work my feet were not sweaty. I don't know if you have this problem, but most slip on shoes leave my feet sweaty which is never good.

My birthday is in April do I put the black or the blue version of these on  my list, that is the question. I see these shoes as a staple to my wardrobe and need to pick up another color soon.

  1. Glad you've enjoyed the Merrell shoes so much. They are really cute!

  2. It is awesome when you find something that fits right and simply works.

  3. I purchased some Merrell casual glove shoes last year (black) and I wear them for work all the time. They are the BEST. Feel so natural, I wish I could have them in every color.

  4. Thanks for the review... they are super cute and I'm stalking them now, in hopes that my credit card magically appears in the appropriate line of the check out form! :)

    1. The black pair are on my birthday wish list. :)
