2. Jessica Simpson Chinah Sandals – The perfect neutral heel – available in Bermuda Pink, Black, and Light Luggage Brown – to kick start the first days of warm weather. The intricate perforated details, in fun triangle and circle shapes, create an elevated on trend look. A slight hidden platform offers additional comfort without sacrificing your style for a night on the town!

These dress sandals really have it all: the distinctive three separate straps, the metallic shine, and, of course, those fabulous perforated cutouts.
5. Vince Camuto Kalista Mesh Booties – This elegant bootie is a flawless transition shoe between seasons. Pair the Kalista booties with tights to give the cutouts the opportunity to stand out. For the start of spring, these same unique cutouts will be the essential tool in facing the warmer temperatures while still giving you the perfect amount of coverage.
6. DV by Dolce Vita Edlyn Penny Loafers – Penny loafers are the key to effortlessly mixing both feminine and masculine elements, and the Edlyn loafers are no different. These cutouts add the perfect touch to this classic style. This loafer is available in the neutral Bone and the bold, colorblocked Coral.

Chasing The Perfect Running Shoe


If not quite on the same par with the search for the Holy Grail, the quest for The Perfect Running Shoe has a venerable pedigree.  After all, runners as a group are serious about their sport and they take their footwear equally as seriously.

Runners will tell you,  however, there is no single “perfect shoe” for all runners, for every purpose.  Still, there is enough commonality that these  features/principles seem to be optimal:

An optimal running shoe should move with the foot, maximizing its natural range of motion.  Nike is a pioneer in this area. Take the Nike Women’s Free Run 5.0+ Barefoot Running Shoes, for example:  they are designed to allow the foot to flex and bend while still providing unparalleled support, protection  and cushioning. Constructed of lightweight mesh, these running shoes feature an inner sleeve that cradles the foot as it moves.

An optimal running shoe will feature different densities in its sole, allowing for a soft, cushioned “ride” with firm support.  Nike Men’s Dual Fusion Run 2 Running Shoes have a dual-density sole with a firm Phylon carrier and a softer interior Phylon core.  This  “best of both worlds” approach give runners the comfort and injury-protection they need.

An optimal running shoe will feature an open mesh upper to mazimize moisture drainage and breathability.  Runners will run in all kinds of weather, including wet weather.  That means finding footwear like ASICS Women’s Gel-Noosa Tri 9 Running Shoes, which can “drain” themselves,  is essential.  Breathability simply means the shoe can dry out faster,  eliminating odor problems.

An optimal running shoe will feature a sole with rubber lugs that grip the running surface securely, whether that surface is a treadmill, street pavement or off-road.  Nike Men’s Free 5.0 Barefoot Running Shoes, have that kind of sole, man!

Oh, one more consideration:

An optimal running shoe will look cool! Check out the futuristic Nike Women’s Free 4.0 Running Shoes.  With their sleek lines and Atomic Orange color, these shoes look like they could run a marathon on Mars, all by themselves. They’re the bomb, baby!
