At the end of the summer, I noticed the cute casual shoe-sneakers that my friend Audrey was wearing when we were having lunch at the beach club. They were adorable, and they looked so comfortable. I decided I needed to get a pair of my own.
When it comes to footwear, I guess I’m pretty old school. I own loafers, and I own running shoes and about a million pairs of pumps, but I had nothing like this. I don’t really even know what to call this type of footwear: a shoe? a sneaker? It’s a sneaker-shoe! Online, it’s referred to as a walking shoe or a fashion sneaker. Whatever!
Audrey couldn’t remember from which website she got hers, so I searched google images and found a website that sold them. Audrey’s were navy blue with some silver sparkles, and mine are black with some silver sparkles.
As you can see, the brand is Skechers. They’re made with what Skechers calls Stretch Weave and Memory Foam. They’re like walking on clouds because of the cushioned interior and the bouncy sole. They are unbelievably comfortable. And they look cute with jeans. Perfect shoes for walking around town or being a tourist somewhere. They’re also light as a feather so they won’t weigh you or your luggage down if you travel with them.
The overall style is called EZ Flex 2.0, and there are a number of versions with slightly different styling from mine, like a ballet flat and a Mary Jane or double strap with the same bouncy sole.
The version I got (slip-on with silver sparkles) is called Tada, and the style number is 22689. I bought mine at a website called 6pm.com. They arrived quickly and in good condition. I think I paid about $36 for them. Unfortunately, it looks like the Tada is out of stock on 6pm.com as well as on several other retailers like Walmart.com and Kohls.com because the EZ Flex is now up to 3.0, but IMO, they’re not as cute. (The Skechers website has about a million different styles of their comfort or performance sneakers, shoes and boots but no more EZ Flex 2.0.)
But before we give up on finding the EZ Flex 2.0 Tada, Amazon has an all-black version without sparkles as well as a super-cute hot pink version with a white sole without sparkles and a really wild multicolor version with either a black or grey background. I’m thinking that I might have to get the hot pink ones too for next summer before they disappear.
I know that many of us will soon be wearing boots instead of fashion sneakers, but I thought these comfortable cuties were worth mentioning.
Do these interest you? Do you have any cute comfortable shoes that you love?
