I own the Sorel Kinetic Sneakers in two colorways and have worn the black pair with some frequency (for both running and casual wear) as I find them quite comfortable (don’t just take my word; read additional reviews here and here). And I look forward to wearing the shoes in “neutral tan,” which is more pink than tan, in warmer weather. Most reviewers think these shoes run half a size large, but on me they fit true to size with athletic socks.
As I mentioned last week, I am currently on a sandals bender. But after I got the Liv Leather Block Heel Sandals, I returned a few shoes that I was lukewarm about, including the Steven Release Strappy Sandals in Nude, which are fine if unexceptional. Fit- and comfort-wise, I thought they ran a size small and wouldn’t be comfortable for longer wears on account of the somewhat constrictive straps.
And while the Ipanema Pearl T-Strap Sandals are conceptually interesting and reasonably priced, the execution is lacking. I did not like the rubber material out of which the shoe is constructed, but if you are looking for flip flops with some flair, these might be of interest.
The Bop Basics Cable Knit Turtleneck Sweater is now 70% off and on final sale so I thought I’d share a photo and some thoughts: If you are a fan of puff sleeves (as I am), this is a worthwhile option. The material (53% cotton/42% nylon/5% wool) is mediocre, but I like the style and the current price is very reasonable. “Tomato” is a shade brighter than the stock photo.
