To everyone that knows me, it comes as no surprise that I have a bit of a shoe addiction (they can be found along my closet, behind my door, under the bed, and any off-season shoes in my storage closet). So lately I’ve been trying to be more responsible with my purchasing habits — if for no other reason then space restraints and to avoid being so wasteful. So my new rule is no overlap – I do not need another pair of black pumps or brown flats no matter how cute or ‘practical’ they are.
When I first came across Stuart Weitzman’s Pellets shoes (the picture does not do them justice) I didn’t even realize they were made of rubber until I tried them on. And to be clear, I am not a jellies kinda gal, I do however lead an event heavy lifestyle, which when it comes to shoes can be a challenge with all the rain NYC has been experiencing this year. I’m often posed with the question: is it better to wear my rain boots or take my chances with ruining my heels? Well my new answer is none of the above. These flats are versatile, comfortable, and most importantly waterproof! And while they do breath, you are wearing rubber without any socks so there’s about a 4-hour window before your feet feel a little sweaty.
So needless to say they came home with me and are everything I never knew I always needed. I picked them up in Silver, however they are also available in additional colors including Fuchsia, Black and Gold.
