Top Favs: Shoe Brands!

If you don't already know, my "real" job involves shoes.  A ton of shoes.  hehe.  Of course, I get asked all the time what are my favorite brands, what are the best for your money, how to tell quality verses crap (and it's not just price!).  I've decided to talk a bit about my top fav brands and why they are my favs.  These are not in any particular order.

  • Born/B.O.C.
    • The perfect combination between style and comfort.  Born/B.O.C. are one in the same company.  B.O.C. (Born Original Concepts) is made by Born and has the same quality -  just at a cheaper price.  I absolutely LOVE their boots and ankle boots.  They also make some of the most comfortable wedges and sandals ever!
  • TOMS
    • One-for-One.  Every time you purchase a pair of TOMS shoes or apparel, the company donates a pair of shoes to a person in need.  They donate in the U.S. as well as outside in tons of countries.  This company not only gives back in an exceptional way, BUT they make super comfortable shoes!  I absolutely love their classics, their strappy wedges, cordonnes (tennis shoe style), and their boots.  They come up with some of the most unique colors, patterns and designs possible.  I absolutely love them!
  • Steve Madden/Madden Girl
    • Need I say more?  Everyone who loves shoes knows these two brands.  Steve Madden, the name that shouts style and cute!  Madden Girl, the cheaper and just as incredible brand made by Steve Madden.  I love their boots and flats the most!  Many girls will know their boots by "the brown boot with the red zipper" which is extremely popular right now.  Super cute shoes at a price that's incredible for the quality.
  • Corral
    • Hand-made, Western and English style boots.  I'm in love with their riding boots, but their western boots are just as gorgeous.  These high-quality boots come with a price to match, but with proper care will last for eons.  Plus, they are so comfortable!  Can't go wrong with a high quality leather boot that looks just as good as it feels.
  • Sperry
    • Boat shoes no more!  These gorgeous, high quality leather shoes are made to last and look great.  They are super comfortable and only get more comfortable with wear.  What I like most about these shoes, is how versatile they are.  Dress them up with a pair of khaki or black pants or dress down with a pair of jeans.  They come in a huge variety of colors and styles to suit everybody's shoe dream.
  • Merrell
    • The perfect hiking, work or walking shoe.  Tons of support, tons of cushion and incredible quality.  These shoes are made to last and built for comfort.  There is a one to fit every person's needs and feet.  My favs are the Encore Eclipse (Primo Patch) and the Jacardia sandal.
  • Gabriella Rocha
    • A brand I can only find on, they make super cute and comfortable shoes.  The quality is great for the price too!  Some of the cutest wedge heels, flats and boots I've found at a price that anyone can afford.
What are your fav shoe brands?  Almost all of these can be found at the nearest shoe store to you.  Check out their websites for help on finding these incredible brands.  Happy Shoe Day!
