Welcome to A Social Gal’s Top 5: Shoe Brands This week we are diving into one of my favorite categories, shoes! It is no secret that I have a shoe obsession so this truly is a topic I am well versed on and excited to write about. Below are my current Top 5 shoe brands that I highly encourage any fellow shoe lovers to check out! Happy shoe shopping!
1. Jeffrey Campbell
Jeffrey Campbell shoes have quickly become one of my absolute favorite brands. Known for their unique style, often show-stopping, these shoes are anything but dull! And that is exactly why they are coming in at the number one spot on A Social Gal’s Top 5: Shoe Brands. Not only are Jeffrey Campbell shoes on-trend, but they are also comfortable which is really important. We all want to look good but most of us don’t want to completely sacrifice comfort for style (I mean sometimes I am totally okay with it). From sandals to booties, Jeffrey Campbell makes it all and every single design is sure to make both your stylish heart and your feet happy. His designs are out of this world and you are sure to get many compliments on your choice of shoe wear when you show up in Jeffrey Campbells.
2. Gianni Bini
Another shoe designer I have been crushing on for a while is Gianni Bini. Gianni Bini shoes are stylish, on-trend and classic. Unlike Jeffrey Campbell’s designs which tend to be much more out of the box, Gianni Bini shoes are more classic, every day wear. One of the reasons why I like Gianni Bini shoes so much is because they are great staples for my closet. With fun designs, classic coloring, and overall great style, these shoes are worth exploring! I also find them to be well-priced with great deals to be found especially at Dillard’s! If you are unfamiliar with Gianni Bini shoes then you need to get familiar really quickly. I know it will be love at first wear!
3. Sam Edelman
Sam Edelman shoes have been around for a long time and for good reason. Each year, the styles seem to keep getting better and better. I have been a fan for many years and one of the biggest reasons is that these shoes last! I have worn a few pairs of my Sam Edelman shoes literally into the ground. They still look great and are highly wearable after all that use. The shoes are well designed and always on-point.
Honestly though, my favorite thing about Sam Edelman’s shoes and why they make the list of A Social Gal’s Top 5: Shoe Brands is because they can be found for such great deals. You have probably figured out by now that your girl loves a good deal. I have amassed a shoe collection because of that. Many of these come from Sam Edelman because they can be found at retailers such as Ross, TJ Maxx, and Nordstrom Rack for a fraction of the retail price! You are probably familiar with the designs, but now go familiarize yourself with all the ways you can get them for much less!
4. Betsey Johnson
Betsey Johnson shoes are crazy! Simply put, they are such whimsical and fun designs that leave everyone to say, “Did you see her shoes?” Isn’t that what we as fashionistas want people to say? Though her shoes are not new to me, out of all the brands on this list, they are the ones that I have less of. But they make the list because I have been really into the designs as of recently-the summer collection is hot!
The biggest reason I am including Betsey Johnson on the A Social Gal’s Top 5: Shoe Brands list is because they are just so darn fun. I have yet to see a pair of shoes that don’t make me smile. They are really a great go-to when you want a pair of shoes that can speak for themselves. If you want to try a fun design totally outside of your comfort zone, look no further than Betsey.
Minnetonka’s are making the list for one reason and one reason alone. They are heavenly on the feet! You are probably picturing the moccasins however that’s not what I am talking about here. A few years ago, I found the cutest pair of fringe wedges at Gabe’s for super cheap. I wore those things until they fell apart. Then I started buying more of the same style because they were so comfortable. The styles are cute too but pretty standard with much less variety than all the previous designers I mentioned. However, if you get yourself a pair of Minnetonka wedges, you will never want to take those things off. I have spent hours on my feet in these 3+ inch sandals without the slightest foot pain. Cute, check! On-trend, check! Comfortable, double-check!
Lace Em’ Up!
To lace it up (wrap it up), I will share that these are just some of my current favorite shoe brands. I, like many of you I am sure, go through phases where I am really loving a certain designer. Sometimes I am willing to splurge on a pair of shoes. Other times, I want the best deal for my dollar. All of the above brands have one thing in common and that is style. I have worn them, owned them for a considerable amount of time, and searched for them for probably even longer in some cases. The A Social Gal’s Top 5: Shoe Brands are a list of tried and true amazing brands that I highly encourage you to take some time to look into and see what you think for yourself!
