Shoe review of b.o.c Acacia sandals
I did a little shopping over the weekend and decided that I wanted to find myself a cute maxi skirt for the summer months. So, after picking one out in navy, I naturally came to the conclusion that I needed some new shoes to go with it. Ok, I wanted some new shoes, but I totally justified it by reminding myself that I need way more flat sandal options in my closet right now. Pink ones, with big flowers on them. Thus, I now have my new b.o.c. Acacia shoes and figured I would share my impression of them so far.
I was looking for something to add some bright color and something I could slip on for more casual activities that require a decent amount of walking (like more shopping, perhaps?) and still keep my feet happy. I’ve always liked the leather flower detail often found on Born and b.o.c shoes, but for whatever reason, I hadn’t ever bought a pair for myself. Also, while a lot of flat sandals tend to be, well, flat (i.e. basically like walking on a stiff piece of material) and quite narrow, these have a nice amount of cushioning on the insole and the base of the shoe is fairly wide – not super-wide, but should accomodate most feet. Here’s a little closeup of the insole:
I like the floral pattern and matching pink stitching going on here. Little extra details like this are always a plus.
So, all in all, I’m definitely enjoying my cute and comfy new sandals and I’m sure they’ll get plenty of use over the summer – primarily for casual days out, but they could just as easily be dressed up a bit for things like going out to dinner, which is where I wore them the first time with my new skirt. If you’d like to check them out online, DSW has the b.o.c Acacia for $49.95 and, in addition to pink (which is a brighter pink in person than in their picture), there are options for black, white, champagne, and green.
