By now, I’m sure you know that I’m all about form and function. Comfort will always win with me and be the deciding factor on whether I’ll purchase an item. I prefer to invest in pieces that not only look good but also make me feel good. No matter how much I love something, if it’s not comfortable, I’m not wearing it – especially when it comes to shoes! Living in Los Angeles I mostly commute by car, but I do still walk quite a bit (trying to reach 10,000 steps a day okay!). Let’s be real, even if I were sitting all day, an uncomfortable shoe will make its presence known.

Recently, I was introduced to the Kenneth Cole Riley, a series of shoes designed to take the modern woman from the desk to dinner in both comfort + style. In total honesty, I was skeptical that I would be able to wear them all day. I purposely chose to test out the patent leather slingback pumps first because I find them to be one of the most painful heels ever. Verdict: you have to wear it to believe it. I was so shocked to find how comfortable they are. I usually switch my shoes to slides between meetings but I didn’t have to do that with these heels. As cheesy as it sounds, it feels like magic, but there are a few innovative reasons why:

  • Soft leather lining: cradles the foot for comfortable contact all day
  • Memory foam pads: cushion key pressure points in the ball + heel of the foot
  • High-density foam: distributes weight for added cushioning
  • Reactive outsole: delivers sneaker-like flexibility + stabilizes the foot

They offer this technology in a variety of different styles to fit your aesthetic (check them out here: Another favorite of mine is the D’orsay Loafer Pump. I have them in white (also available in black) and I love the unique and timeless style of these pumps. You can dress them up or down, take them from day to night, making life just a little easier and a lot less painful. The Riley is truly the perfect shoe for the girl that never stops. Also, you know I’m all about a sale, so make sure to check out all the latest Kenneth Cole promotions here:
