slip-on sneaker shopping guide.

the complete guide to slip-on sneakers for all budgets // @luvfromafar

When it comes to shoes, I am a very calculated shopper. I rarely (if ever) go shopping without a plan. I do a fair amount of research on comfort and wear before actually investing in a pair of shoes. (I purchased one too many pairs of blister-producing shoes in my college years to let that happen again.) I investigated leopard pointy-toe flats last fall to find the perfect pair and shared my findings with all of you. This spring, I put in the same leg work on a new type of shoe: the slip-on sneaker. I had been skeptical of this old school sneak until one of my most stylish friends arrived wearing them this weekend. I decided it might be time to give this trend a try. 

Per usual, I did some extensive research to uncover all my options. From under $25 to north of $200, there are pairs for every budget and style. After looking at these shoes for quite some time, I've decided they would work perfectly in lieu of a boat shoe or an espadrille. Don't get me wrong: I love my Sperrys, but sometimes, I want more comfortable shoe. No laces would also be a bonus! This pair from Splendid and these classic (but perforated) Vans are topping my wish list, though part of me wants to try the trend with a pair from Old Navy or Target before making the investment. I'm torn!

  1. I've been a huge TOMS supporter for years and I swear they are the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. I wore my first pair all over Europe on a 2-week vacation, including on the 7 mile hike in Cinque Terre, with zero complaints. I've been loyal to the brand ever since and would highly recommend them!

  7. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
