I got started on updating my wardrobe with some new shoes purchases...
First up, I took advantage of the tax free holiday in August to pick up another pair of Saucony Grid Omni 11 running shoes and SuperFeet DMP insoles. These insoles ensure that I have great stability and support for my feet. I've noticed less blisters from this pair of insoles so that's a big bonus on top of the tax free savings!
Next, I moved into specialty apparel. I had an evening wedding to go to and wanted a new dressy sandal. The shoes were pretty comfortable until the dancing portion of the evening. My foot kept sliding forward and the peep toe was hurting from that. I love fancy shoes even though I don't wear them that often.

And lastly, the shoes that I have been most excited about. Cowboy boots! Last month I told you all about attending the Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged conference. One of the sponsors was Country Outfitter and part of their sponsor program provided paid registrants with the opportunity to participate in an outreach campaign. I was so excited since I've never had boots before and I was even more excited to go on a fitting adventure and find out that cowboy boots would fit my legs!
I spent hours pouring over the Country Outfitter website reviewing the different brands and styles. In the end I decided on a pair by Tony Lama the Women's Dusty Cherokee boot. One of the big things that I was looking at was toe shape...and their site helps you search by brand, boot type, or toe box! We got our boots at the conference just in time for a fun party where we learned some jig dancing from a local fiddler. The boots were super comfy and felt great! I wore them with a denim skirt and can't wait to include them in my Friday casual wardrobe this fall at work.
