Every year, I feel like my feet get worse. When I worked in retail, I could survive an entire day on cheap, super thin soled, super flat sandals, but when I try the same thing today I can't walk ten feet without feeling my heels take the beating, knowing that if I don't change shoes soon my plantar fasciitis will play up. In addition, my feet are quite blister prone: a lovely double whammy of problem feet. I have to be super mindful of the shoes I wear, making sure they have arch support, no chafing straps, and bouncy soles that cushion my heels while I walk. 

Obviously, it's not easy to find summer shoes that fit all of the requirements while still being affordable and kind of cute, but I have three holy grails: Birkenstocks, Tevas and the ultimate comfy brand: Nike. To me, the most comfortable Nikes are the Roshes, so I couldn't believe my luck when Nike put that perfect squishy sole on a pair of sandals! The elastic straps are super comfortable too, and I even like the way they look. Sort of Roman sandal inspired, but in a modern athleisure type of way. I bet all of those cool people I saw rocking Tevas in Japan would be alllll over  these babies. Like I always do with Nike, did size up with these Nike Roshe One sandals.

I wore them a lot in France (we shot these pics just outside our appartment) and they kept my feet in tip top shape even after a whole day of walking, so I can't recommend them enough if you have the same issues as I do. And they look pretty cute with my outfit, don't they? Another ergonomic decision I made was to get this holographic bum bag. I have this tendency to put all the crap in my purse and then I drag around so much weight that my back starts to hurt after a day of walking, and a backpack just gets me sweaty AF in the summertime, so this cute little bum bag was the perfect solution.

Never pick style over comfort if you can do both, people!
