Pop Culture Hijabi: All About Shoes

I’ll admit it, I first noticed TOMS Shoes because Blake, the founder of the company, is really cute. Yes, I am sometimes that shallow, but I’m sure you’ve seen him in the AT&T commercials and agree.

But the company itself does some very cool stuff. For every pair that you buy, they donate a pair of shoes to needy children.

Plus, these wrap boots seem perfect for Chicago winters. (You can read more about TOMS from a previous Hijabtrendz post).

I’m seriously considering buying a pair, even if they are kind of expensive. It’s all for a good cause, right?

In other shoe news, my friend sent me a blog all about Michelle Obama’s fashion. I’m sure you guys are sick of reading about it, but, for some reason, I’m just fascinated by what she wears! So my friend really wants these Puma sneakers that seem to be sold out.

Ok, I’m always “looking” for nice shoes. I can’t help it.

Lastly, a few weeks ago, I went with some friends to Boston and New York. We did a LOT of walking, and I thought I had the right shoes. They were flats by Dr. Scholl’s, and if anyone should know about comfort, it’s Dr. Scholl’s right? Well, I ended up with horrible blisters, and that did not leave me happy.

Recently, Mighty Girl wrote about flat shoes she owns that feel like sneakers.

I’m tempted to get a pair. They’re pretty reasonably priced AND the designer is “Navid O Nadia.” Who doesn’t want shoes named after themselves?
