Who Says Shoes Can’t Be Comfortable and Stylish Too?

These days, shoes are a mandatory item that should be found in just about any fashionista’s closet. They can range from sandals, sneakers, boots, flats, and the ever-popular heels. Even though high-heels are very popular, some women simply can’t wear them or choose not to. However, this is where the shoe brands, Yosi Samra and Park & James provide an alternative to heels, proving that you don’t need to wear high-heels to be in style.

Based in New York City, Yosi Samra was a second-generation shoe designer, and because of this, he was fully prepared when launching this brand in 2009. Since its creation, Yosi Samra has been credited with pioneering the fold-up ballet flat trend for women. His shoes were also featured in magazines such as Vogue and Glamour, and have been worn by A-list celebrities including noted Oscar winner Halle Berry. Just like Park and James, Yosi Samara’s mission is to bring comfortable footwear without sacrificing any style. In general, the brand has a wide selection of flats that are great for any woman who wants to add a simple yet stylish element to their outfit. Some shoes include the Stelle Tie Suede, which can match well with almost any fall outfit. Also, for any brides who are looking for a way to alternate between heels on their big day, or just don’t want to wear them, their bridal collection is the answer.

There are plenty of reasons why some women can’t wear high-heels, regardless of what they do. According to recent studies, it all comes down to how your foot is shaped and how it moves in certain positions. It is even reported that wearing heels way too often can cause a number of medical problems, such as bunions, hammertoes, and metatarsalgia. However, for every problem there is a solution, and this is why Park and James was created.

Park & James

While Park and James is in the United Kingdom, the brand features a collection of shoes that is perfect for anyone looking for a high-heel alternative. In fact, founder Jacqueline Park, stated that the idea for her line came from the fact that she had flat feet, and buying shoes was considered trial and error for her. Her company’s main mission is to have anyone find shoes that are comfortable enough to wear all day, but are stylish enough for any fashionista. Crafted with Italian leathers in Italy, there is a pair of shoes for almost any outfit. For example, Anya is a great pair when you want a simple and casual appearance, or shoes appropriate for work. If you’re still attracted to the heel look yet desire comfort, Renata is the right pair for you and goes great for the fall. However, for anyone who is looking for a simpler shoe, Yosi Samra can provide great flats.

While heels may dominate the world of fashion, it is clear for any fashionista that you’re not limited to one style. With Park and James, anyone with luxurious tastes can look great while feeling comfortable in genuine Italian leather. Meanwhile, Yosi Samra will have the same effect for anyone who enjoys a simpler appearance and the same level of comfort. So this fall, if you don’t want to wear heels, there will still be something out on the market to wear.
