I have really been looking forward to putting away my winter boots and wearing shoes that let my feet breath in the warmer weather. It is not quite warm enough to get out my fit flops so I have been looking a pair of elegant flat shoes. I wanted some shoes with a little bit of colour for Spring.
I had a look at the range of Spring and Summer shoes from Clarks and I was pleasantly surprised at the range. They have a lot of different styles and colours to choose from and I really had a difficult time making up my mind which pair I liked best. In the end I opted for a pair of flat swede shoes in a lovely Spring green colour.
The shoes arrived in a shoe box with a green lid. On removing the lid I found the shoes wrapped carefully in tissue paper. When I unwrapped the tissue paper each shoe had a cardboard insert inside so they would keep their shape.
The pair of shoes in the box are called Henderson Band. I chose the Mint Green colour which is very Spring like and cheerful. The shoes also come in Bone Leather (which is a white colour), Dark Tan Leather and Fuchsia Leather (a bright pink). As well as the bright colour I liked the cut out pattern in the shoes which reminds me a bit of flowers.
Although the shoes are flat they do have a slight heel which a nice tan colour. This makes the shoes more comfortable to walk in than if they were just flat. Seen from the side the patterned design looks striking.
When I put these shoes on I was struck by how comfortable they were to wear. I have broad feet so I often find it difficult to get shoes to fit. These Clarks shoes fitted perfectly and they felt really comfortable on my feet. I felt as if I was walking on air and it almost felt as if I had no shoes on at all. When I looked inside I could see why it felt like walking on air.
The shoes have an active Air cushion which acts to cushion and absorb impact. It works really well because I couldn’t feel the ground underneath at all. I was able to walk about in these all day and my feet felt really relaxed.
The shoes looked really nice with my new green jeans as well.
Disclosure: I was sent some shoes from Clarks in order to do an honest review. I was not told what to write and my opinions are my own.
