Ellen Christian, editor of the popular blog “The Socialite’s Closet,” despaired of ever finding comfortable sandals. Then she tried a pair of Secret Celebrity Tough Cookie sandals and her search was over! See what Ellen has to say:
Finally, I’ve found a pair of comfortable sandals you can wear all day! In the summer, I live in sandals so it’s important that I find a pair that I can wear comfortably all day from my first cup of coffee, through the work day and the errands, into the evening if my husband and I go out for ice cream. Have you ever fallen in love with a pair of shoes, only to wear them for half an hour and have your feet hurt? There is nothing more frustrating when it comes to shoes. A product was provided for this post but the story is my own.
I’m determined to only hold onto shoes that I will wear, and I’m being ruthless about it. I’ve been working towards a capsule wardrobe so it’s important that my closet has versatile pieces that I love wearing. If it’s not comfortable, it has no place in my closet. I’ve been searching for comfortable sandals that are also stylish and I have finally found them.
The Tough Cookie sandal from Secret Celebrity is a cute wedge sandal in a gladiator style. What makes this sandal different from many gladiator sandals I’ve worn is that the gladiator straps have stretch. As you probably know, your feet swell as the day goes on and the temperature goes up. When you wear traditional gladiator sandals, all of those straps can get fairly uncomfortable. With the Tough Cookie Sandal from Secret Celebrity, the straps are elasticized and give comfortably when they need to.
Another feature that I’m in love with is that the Tough Cookie sandals have arch support. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate a stylish sandal that has the support I need to wear them. The footbed is super comfortable and the arch support is definitely just what I need in a sandal. You can find the Tough Cookie Gladiator Sandal in black and taupe.
Despite all this comfort, the Tough Cookie sandal is stylish enough to wear out with a summer skirt or sundress. The rhinestones on the gladiator straps are a nice touch that makes it easy to dress these sandals up for dinner or a movie out in the evening.
