The Quest for the Golden Feets

If you've spent more than fourteen seconds in my presence, you will already know that I am a huge fan of a metallic shoe. They are essentially neutral accessories that go with everything, yet they add a bit of character to a look without having to do much work, which is perfect for travel, day-to-day life, and all other manner of general sartorial laziness.

These shoes sort of fell into my lap…literally. Fate led me to these Sperry loafers at a Nordstrom Rack when one of them fell off the shelf and hit me in the head while I was bent-down looking at much less practical shoes on the bottom shelf.  It was fate…the siren song of the shoe aisle, and I was powerless against its lure.

Plus, they were 35 bucks. So, you know…bargain.

They're nothing fancy, just a lightweight, simple perforated leather with a flexible sole, but they're perfect for air travel days. They slip on and off easily, and can play in a variety of climates. Sometimes, you just need a shoe that you can break into a full-blown sprint in, and these fit the bill. Pairing these with a simple outfit and a few metallic accents (I chose my byzantine necklace and a pair of gold drop earrings), it elevates things ever-so-slightly without getting all worked-up about it.
