Favorite Teacher Shoes Linky Party

Originally, I wasn't going to make this a Linky Party, but since it has been requested, I think it is a fantastic idea! Plus, I would LOVE to see all of your shoes! :)

What does this have to do with teaching?

Comfortable Shoes = Happy Teacher = Better Mood, Better Instruction, More Patience!

Welcome to my closet!!! For the past few years, I have been on a quest to find shoes that are comfortable all day, but still look like I'm in my 20s...And after many trials, I have had some luck! So here they are--my seven go-to pairs...

So from left to right...

Pair 1 . Wedges from Target, really any wedges. I can't usually do heels all day, but wedges...I can do wedges!!!

Pair 2. Flats from Ann Taylor Loft---Had to wear bandaids on my feet for a week, and after that it has been smooth sailing :)

Pair 3. Tory Burch Revas...Now I've read some reviews about how these aren't comfortable enough, but I haven't had problems! Look at all the great colors they come in!!

Pair 4. Classic Sperry's... I wear them mostly on days we get to wear school shirts.

Pair 5. Naturalizers...This picture is not exactly the shoes I have, but mine are similar. These shoes didn't leave blisters even on the first day. Every pair of naturalizers I've had have been SO AMAZING! Now, some of the styles aren't me, but they've got some great stuff!

Pair 6. White Patent Leather Sperry's. I.LOVE.THESE.SHOES. I bought them four years ago, and they probably aren't even in style anymore, but I love em. They look great with a shirt dress and are always comfortable.

Pair 7. Nine West Heels...IF, and that's a big if...IF I decide to wear heals to work they have to be Nine West. For my feet, these heels just work.

Runner's Up-Clarks and occasionally I pull out the Cowboy Boots...Your turn...What are your favorites?


  1. This would be a fun linky party!

  2. Casey:

    This post was so funny!

    I'd be in the hospital within the first hour of the day if I had to wear heels to school. (I barely manage heels during the 2 hour promotion ceremony... and all the while the 6th graders watch to see if I fall over!)

    I have purple Keene flats. Fun and funny-looking. They make me smile and they make the sixth graders laugh.

    Janaye is right. This should be a linky party! I am already imaging (Oh Boy Fourth) Farley's pictures (A boy, a dog and some shoes???) Bags pics were great. Shoe pics would be hysterical!

    Dare to linky?
