Chilly mornings, fall festivals, warm sweaters: it’s officially time to trade in those light summer kicks for fabulous winter shoes and boots. Like a lot of working women, it’s not uncommon for me to be in heels from 7am to 7pm; even longer if there’s an apres work event, organizational meeting or impromptu gathering with the girls. For an event at the State House last week, I literally drove to Providence in one pair of heels, did the switch in the car for a more formal pair, and after an hour in those, knew they’d be headed for the consignment pile as soon as I got home. (And don’t get me started on my days in DC when it was commonplace to rock the power suit with sneakers on the metro and change at the office–I could never succumb to that fashion disaster.)
So when I was invited to try out a pair of new Rockport Total Motion heels, I jumped at the chance. Newport may have one of the most unforgiving streetscapes for heels. In the course of a short lunch walk, I can easily traipse over asphalt, brick, stone pavers, wooden dock, and of course, cobblestone. Designed with technology (which I’ve featured before here), the highly shock-absorbent cushioning protects the heel at impact. In these shimmery, 3″ tall Total Motion Pointy Toe heels (above and left), your step is comfortably supported by a heavenly layer of retention foam and foam-backed lining. The result: easy, comfortable, day into night heels. While I’m not about to drop down to do a set of mountain-climbers in them like this gal, I could if I wanted to:
