Pop Culture Hijabi: All About Shoes

pop culture hijabi

I’ll admit it, I first noticed TOMS Shoes because Blake, the founder of the company, is really cute. Yes, I am sometimes that shallow, but I’m sure you’ve seen him in the AT&T commercials and agree.

But the company itself does some very cool stuff. For every pair that you buy, they donate a pair of shoes to needy children.

Plus, these wrap boots seem perfect for Chicago winters. (You can read more about TOMS from a previous Hijabtrendz post).

I’m seriously considering buying a pair, even if they are kind of expensive. It’s all for a good cause, right?

In other shoe news, my friend sent me a blog all about Michelle Obama’s fashion. I’m sure you guys are sick of reading about it, but, for some reason, I’m just fascinated by what she wears! So my friend really wants these Puma sneakers that seem to be sold out.

Ok, I’m always “looking” for nice shoes. I can’t help it.

Lastly, a few weeks ago, I went with some friends to Boston and New York. We did a LOT of walking, and I thought I had the right shoes. They were flats by Dr. Scholl’s, and if anyone should know about comfort, it’s Dr. Scholl’s right? Well, I ended up with horrible blisters, and that did not leave me happy.

Recently, Mighty Girl wrote about flat shoes she owns that feel like sneakers.

I’m tempted to get a pair. They’re pretty reasonably priced AND the designer is “Navid O Nadia.” Who doesn’t want shoes named after themselves?

    I’m a little wary of the flats, too. But she claims that they’re comfortable! I’ll definitely have to try them out. I know, it’s so hard to find really nice ones that are good for all-day wear. I’d totally sacrifice comfort for a cute pair of shoes. 🙂
    Yeah, I have a hart time parting with my shoes. I tend to take more than I need, even on short vacations!
    Mariam, you’re probably more sensible. Nobody needs as many shoes as I have. But, oh, how I love them. haha

    Sally you crack me up! 🙂
    I wish I could be more into shoes.. I just have issues with comfort, and I notice I usually get obsessed with one or two pairs and wear them to death. Then I move on to a new pair hehe. Although if I could wear heels for extended periods of time my shoe collection would probably increase dramatically. Inshallah once my kids grow older and I don’t have to carry them I’ll bust out those hot mama shoes 🙂

    I like the flats! they dont look like they’d feel like sneakers though. Are you sure? if you buy them let us know if they do 😉
    I love shoes too, but I still havent found a cute pair that I can walk all day with. I have dozens of flats, but the lack of support makes it difficult to walk all day with them. I still do, for the sake of looking good, lol…
    We recently moved across the country and, since we don’t get our house right away, I could only bring a few pairs. I ended up bringing more than 20 pairs, because I could not imagine going for 4 months without them. The rest is in the storage facility and I’m already suffering from separation anxiety. lol.
    From your post, I’m glad to see that I may be normal 🙂
