Not Your Grandmother's Comfort Shoes!

Sponsored by Zappos

In my twenties I was all about 6 inch heels and stupid shoes that 20 years later I've come to regret. I've since made it my mission to hunt down cute and comfortable shoes that I can wear all day long without shedding a tear — or needing to pull out the band-aids. Last year I spotted the cutest Pikolinos sandals online (which sadly sold out before I could pull the trigger) and I have not stopped thinking about them. Ever since then, Pikolinos has been on my radar, so I was excited to team up with my friends at to share my hunt for the perfect spring sandals!

If you haven't shopped Zappos before, you don't know what you are missing. They have a huge selection of current styles, free shipping and free returns, a 365 day return policy, and hands down the best customer service ever. As a busy mom, some days fly by with deadlines and chores... and before I know it, it's 10pm and I haven't left my house. Nothing makes me happier than shopping online in my PJs after my kids are in bed.

Right now, there are over 100 Pikolinos sandals to choose from so narrowing it down was the most difficult part of the process. Their philosophy is to "make yourself comfortable and let happiness begin at your feet." What's so special about this Spanish company is that Pikolinos is so much more than just comfort shoes. I love that they are socially responsible with their eco-friendly use of materials, and give back through their foundation Juan PerΓ‘n-Pikolinos — both locally and internationally.

After reading tons of user reviews and watching those handy little Zappos videos (so I could get an idea of what the shoes would look like on the foot), I finally selected these Pikolinos Mykonos sandals in Marfil — the perfect pale blush-nude color. You know me and pink! I love how comfortable and lightweight the footbed is and I was able to wear them all day long on one of my City shopping adventures last week. I also love that they have a little bit of height to them — I actually find it uncomfortable when shoes are completely flat. I would totally order another pair of Pikolinos on Zappos, especially if my dream shoes ever magically come back in stock!

Who else is so done with uncomfortable shoes? Don't get me wrong, I love my crazy shoe collection. I can still pull out my heels and wear them for 3-4 hours at a shot, but I'm so happy to have another pair of cute, comfortable shoes in my arsenal.

Thank you to Zappos for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.



  1. Those shoes look great, Michelle. I love Zappos and I'm glad they have a nice selection of Nina shoes and more, including the Nina kids shoes.

    1. Thanks! Zappos is pretty amazing - I love their little videos when selecting shoes. I always look there first when choosing for the girls too :)

  2. They do look very comfortable however I think I would still opt for comfortable flats with a nice bow or embellishment to add a bit of elegance and glamour . You look super cute πŸ˜˜πŸ’žπŸ’–

    1. Thanks! I used to wear more cute flats - but I don't find them all that comfortable. Gimme a platform or small heel any day :)

  3. Those shoes look really comfortable.

  4. Great post thank you for sharing, it is always nice to find a comfortable shoe that is also cute. These are the perfect shoe for warmer weather and lots of walking that comes with it. Zappos is such a great place to order shoes!

  6. I literally hate heels. I haven’t been a fan of them most of my life! Love that you did this post on comfortable shoes! I live for comfort! Have you worn them all day with no issue?

  7. You looks super cute with the hair and sunnies . The sandals are looking very comfy and nice .oit comfort and health is the first .

  8. I couldn't agree with you more, I used to wear heels so much myself but after having children I just couldn't do it any more. I love your Pikolinos sandals, not only do they look chic but they look so comfortable. This neutral colour is so easy to wear. I will definitely be checking out Zappos for some shoes too :).


  9. First of all, I want to say, I do love pair of comfortable shoes, especially when I'm traveling!!! This pair of shoes of yours looks so comfy and yet so chic! I totally need a pair for my travel days.

  10. I'd lie to you if I say I am done with high heels. I have a love hate relationship with heels. Comfy shoes that look stylish at the same time are the perfect shoes. You styled them perfectly and the colour goes pretty much with everything. I never have shopped at Zappos but I will for sure check it out for sure. I am a shoe addict myself. Bth I love your sunnies!

  11. For years I used to wear the most uncomfortable shoes because I always found comfy shoes ugly. I’m so glad this now has changed and one can find shoes like Zappos that are both comfy and look good.



  12. Your wedge is wonderful and it looks fine on casual clothing. I can't wait to wear them.
