I should preface this post by saying that I am a lover of shoes! They are by far my most favorite accessory and if given the choice between a cute outfit, jewelry or shoes, 99% of the time I would go with the shoes! And I have, as my closet currently contains close to 200 pairs.
Sadly since becoming a mom, my shoe game has been lacking. I’ve traded in my favorite 4″ pumps for flats and basically anything that is comfortable when chasing around a toddler. And even before she a toddler, maneuvering around in 4″ heels while toting baby carrier was not the easiest thing to do.
And now that I am no longer a working mom I have even less of a reason to put on heels, except for maybe the occasional date night and lets be honest, those are few and far between.
So, back to my new shoes. Living in the desert allows me to get away with wearing sandals basically year round, so I am always on the lookout for cute and comfy sandals to add to my repertoire and last week a shoe company that I’ve been admiring for a while had an amazing 6th anniversary sale so I jumped on the chance to snag a pair for myself.
If you follow me on Instagram you already know how excited I was about Sseko’s shoes sale! I love their ribbon sandals, well actually I love all of their stuff, but especially their ribbon sandals. And what’s even better is that they are a company that gives back (read their story here) and I love being able to support a company like that!
During their 50% off ribbon sandal sale, I purchased the brown ribbon sandal base (I really went back and forth between the brown and the beige, but I’m so glad I finally settled on the brown, it is perfect!) and I bought 6 ribbons that are interchangeable with the shoes. I actually purchased the Classic Sandal Package and then ribbons in Gold, Chiffon and Kelly Green. I thought these ribbons would pretty much go with everything in my wardrobe, but I can definitely see how purchasing additional ribbons could be addicting! They have so many cute ones!
I received my new shoes super fast and have had a lot of fun trying out new ways to tie them (find tutorials here) and trying to come up with my own. I love that the possibilities of these shoes are endless!
And don’t worry, they are super comfortable too! Of course all of the reviews stated this, but I still was surprised by the comfort level of these shoes when I first put them on! Even after a day of chasing Brynlee around they don’t hurt my feet. And I definitely I can’t say that about most of my sandals.
Also, I have to note, that I did purchase these shoes with my own money and was not asked to review them by Sseko, I have been in no way compensated for this. But I do LOVE these shoes and just had to share! So if you’re looking for a great pair of sandals, you should definitely get these!!
