Women’s shoes are getting a masculine makeover! First came the boyfriend button down, then the boyfriend jean, and now the boyfriend shoe. Although these shoes are inspired by menswear, they certainly do not lack the feminine touch.

Sperry Top-Sider recently launched their Spring 2013 collection…and we’re in love. In the past, we found Sperry was meant for the preppy girl (or guy) who liked pretending they lived in New England.

Now, while they’re still known for their nautical look, Sperry is branching out more than ever with highly fashionable options. Their new Delancey shoe and original boat shoe in woven turquoise won us over:

Yes, they’re on the pricey side. But as you all may know, we’re advocates for spending good money on shoes and saving money on items like shirts and pants, as well as anything to do with hyped-up trends.

When it comes to shoes, you must strive for comfort — especially if you’re on your feet a good portion of the day. Quality shoes can last for years, while cheap ones will only get you through a few months of regular wear. Read: “The Difference Between Cheap and Expensive Shoes.”

Broke & Chic got a sneak-peek video of their new women’s collection:

New Shoes Don’t Have to Mean Painful Blistershttp://brokeandchic.com/new-shoes-dont-have-to-mean-painful-blisters/ http://brokeandchic.com/new-shoes-dont-have-to-mean-painful-blisters/#comments Mon, 09 Jan 2012 01:57:23 +0000 http://brokeandchic.com/?p=3043 Mornings always feel better when you get to start your day off with a new pair of fabulous shoes.…

Mornings always feel better when you get to start your day off with a new pair of fabulous shoes. The downfall: blisters. The stiff, unbroken-in material rubbing against your skin could potentially have you on the brink of tears by the end of the day. Blisters happen when you have to much friction — a constant rubbing motion against your skin. The heel and big toe are usually the most affected, however, the bottom part of your feet can also suffer if you don’t wear socks.

The solution is prevention. Don’t even give those fabulous new shoes a chance to hurt your feet. When it comes to casual shoes (sneakers, flats, oxfords…), put a Band-Aid on your heels, big toe and the skin right above your big toe before you even leave the house. That way, the shoes will rub against the bandage, not your delicate skin.

Heels are a bit different. Nobody wants to see bandages sticking out of their sexy pumps on a hot date. Instead, put Band-Aids on and wear them around the house. Clean your room, do the laundry, run to the store in your favorite pair of skinny jeans…bandages well hidden. When the time comes to wear your heels for that hot date or night out with the girls, they’ll be broken in and comfortable. You’ll look good, feel great and never have to deal with sore, blistered feet. Prevention is key!

I bought a few cheap things at the Buffalo Exchange in Chelsea today, including a nice maroon J. Crew coat that’s perfect for spring for $6.50, a black blazer for $10, and a cute owl ring for $4. I also found a vintage LEATHER Members Only Jacket for $25.00. It just didn’t fit right so it wasn’t meant to be. If you live in NYC or are just visiting check it out!

114 W. 26th Street, Chelsea
New York, NY 10001
(212) 675-3535

I also found a pair of women’s Coach sneakers for $18 and a pair of mens Marc Jacobs oxfords for $75. Not necessarily cheap, but for a high end designer, it’s an exception. The Marc Jacobs shoes would normally cost you $510 brand new and about $350 on eBay.
