A Day in Our Shoes – Husband & Wife

Famous Footwear Aerosoles

I am a shoe lover. I fully admit that. I don't know what it is that attracts me so much to shoes. I love color, texture, flats, heels and so much more.

When I need shoes for the family, I always head to Famous Footwear. Every single time we shop there, every member of the family (all five of us) come home with something that we like. We are always satisfied by our Famous Footwear shopping trips. In fact, next month, we head to New York where we will do a little school shopping for the kids and we always hit every Famous Footwear we find in the city.

My husband and I both needed some new shoes this spring. He wanted something that looked nice and that he could wear to many places. I wanted the same thing but I wanted all of that in heels. I wanted to be able to go from meetings during the day to fun events at night. And I didn't want to have to worry about my feet aching. However I don't want to sacrifice comfort this summer especially when I will be going non-stop in NYC next month.

These were tall orders. We headed straight to Famous Footwear. My husband found what he wanted first.

Famous Footwear Sperry

He went for the Sperry Top-Sider Men's Halyard Sneaker is both comfortable and stylish. They call it “stress-free styling” and my husband calls it his new favorite shoe. He wears it with shorts, casual pants and jeans. They look great in every scenario.

Here is what the Famous Footwear website says about them (our thoughts are in parentheses):

  • Canvas upper in a casual slip-on sneaker style (he chose the navy but now wants the black as well)
  • Metal eyelet detail (this makes the shoe look great)
  • Can be worn with or without laces (without the laces gives the shoe a nice, clean look)
  • Padded tongue and collar (adds comfort)
  • Smooth lining and lightly cushioned insole (he loves the feel)
  • Vulcanized construction (I don't even know what this means but it sounds cool)
  • Rubber outsole with Wave-Siping(TM) for wet and dry traction (my husband says that this is a major selling point and makes him pick these shoes the most).

Famous Footwear Aerosoles Black Pearl Plush Wedge Heels

I chose the Aerosoles Women's Pearl Plush Wedge Sandal in Black which are comfortable and stylish. Exactly what I was looking for on this shopping trip. They delivered that and so much more.

I wanted to specifically show you a pair without my feet in them so that you can see the fabric lining the sole. It is a plush black suede that is so incredibly comfortable that I really enjoy wearing them. Plus they look great on as well!

Here is what the Famous Footwear website says about them (my thoughts in parenthesis):

  • Faux leather upper in a wedge sandal style ( I had no idea that these were faux leather until I read it on here).
  • Open toe (love this! I love displaying freshly painted toenails).
  • Front zip closure (this makes this sandal totally on trend).
  • Strappy design (this elongates the leg).
  • Inside elastic goring panels ensure a secure fit (they feel stable while wearing – no strap breaks here).
  • Smooth lining with a cushioning footbed (I cannot mention this enough – I love the footbed).
  • Traction outsole, 3 ½ inch wedge heel (feels tall without being too tall).

  5. Those black wedges are so cute! I love that they are Aerosoles because I know they must be comfy!

  13. Bonnie @ wemake7

    Those are both some really nice looking shoes. I will have to check out to see what else they have too.

  14. Lol on the vulcanized construction but it does make the shoes sound durable. I’ll read up on that after this. We don’t have Famous Footwear here yet and I hope that someone brings it here in PH. A lot of shoe-lovers will go ga-ga over shoes. I checked their site and I love the brands that they carry.

  15. I am a shoe lover too and I love heels. Those heels you’re wearing are really pretty. So sexy too!

  16. I see the coupons for Famous Footwear all of the time, but we don’t have one near us. I continue to hear that they have a HUGE selection of shoes for the entire family. Maybe when we travel to LA this summer we will stop by.

  17. I love the Sperry shoes and I think my husband would really like them too. He usually wears tennis shoes to work.

    I like your wedges too.

  18. Your husbands shoes look super comfortable! Not so sure about yours, but my feet slide forward and I have flat arches. So likely not. Thanks for sharing this though! I do need to look into new shoes!

  19. I’m actually really loving the blue sperrys your husband has… for myself! Think how cute they’d go with white shorts and a navy blouse/top.

  20. I love your new sandals and your husbands look really good. My husband would definitely go for those because he loves comfort.

  21. CourtneyLynne

    Omg I just love famous foot wear! One of the few stores that is actually decent here in the middle of nowhere NY!

  22. Ann Bacciaglia

    These are both great pairs of shoes. I love the black sandals. They would go with a lot of my summer dresses.

  23. Girl, you have such great taste in shoes! I love the black sandals! My husband would like the Sperry shoes your husband chose.

  24. I’m surprised the strappy shoes were Aerosoles: Aerosoles are super comfortable shoes and now they are way more styling than they used to be. Very nice!

  25. We have a Famous Footwear not too far from our place. We should head over there sometimes soon because hubby needs new shoes!

  26. I loved this post and the shoes you chose. Famous footwear has some of the best shoes!

  27. As a mom of four kids, I love Famous Footwear. I can always find what we need at a price that makes us happy.

  28. I’m about due for a new pair of kicks myself. I try to keep it to less than 4 pairs and I’ve only got three right now!

  29. Yona Williams

    Your husband’s assessment of his shoes was amusing to read. I LOVE the wedge sandals that you chose – something I would wear!

  30. My husband is also for comfortable and light shoes. Yours look really pretty!

  31. Julie Wood

    The shoes you picked are gorgeous for Summer and look really pretty on you! I love shopping at Famous Footwear and have found really good marked down shoes. I want a pair like yours!!

  32. We buy most of our shoes at Famous Footwear. They options are endless and you can easily find a bargain there.

  33. Elisabeth

    Loving your shoes! Wedges are definitely the way to go! 😉

    Famous footwear is the perfect place to splurge on shoes, everytime i go i always end up buying a few pairs. Awesome variety. Never leave the place empty handed.

  35. Kristin Knudsen

    I love both pairs of shoes!!! Your husband’s shoes for the comfort, and classic summer look…and ease of putting them on! And, your shoes for the style! I would love to be a pumps kinda’ girl. But, alas, I am a forever running shoes girl!!! I need the wide fit, the arch support, and the lack of a heel!!!

  36. Kristin K

    I love both shoes!! Is that wrong? I love the strappy ladies pair for a fun night out! But, I also love your husband’s pair, for daily wear!!!

  37. Alina

    I, too, am a shoe lover. Love Famous Footwear! They have such a wide variety and such great prices. I just went there this past weekend and bought three pairs of shoes.
