My Comfit Flats: Fashion + Comfort

When it comes to shoes, I usually go for wedges. But having a pair of dependable and comfortable flats is a must especially when you have to be on superwoman mode.  

My wedges are reserved for weekends when my husband can load and unload the stroller from the car. On regular days that I beat the clock for errands, take my 3-year old to his class or play date (while wearing our 5-month old on a sling), it is not only practical but necessary for me to be in flats.

My only dilemma with flats is that it tires my feet when I wear it for a long time.  I have a slightly higher arch than normal so if I'm to be in flat shoes, the heels or shoe base have to be padded. Aside from comfort, I also want something that's fashionable even if I'm just in shorts or leggings. 

Aerosoles and Naturalizer have always been my go-to brand for shoes but I buy they only in the States because they're a lot cheaper than if I buy them here in Manila.  I've been on a hunt for a local counterpart until I've come across the brand Comfit. 

I was happy to learn that they have a branch in Market Market Taguig (where we're only a few minutes away).  In their store, I was pleasantly surprised with the variety of flats they have. Unfortunately, there were only a few styles available in my size. I initially wanted a black, but the friendly sales associate offered me this pretty flats in gray.

I have to admit that I initially thought it was too dressy for an everyday flats. But when I tried it on, I fell in love with it. As the S.A. described it, "nakakaputi ng paa."  Sige na nga, as if naman maitim ako. "Maam, mas pumuti pa." LOL! Before the S.A. got even more cheeky, I asked for a size 6 and just like Cinderella, I was enamored. Yes, enamored is the word I chose because that's just what it felt like. Aren't they just lovely?

There are so many things I love about this flats. One is the gold and ribbon detail makes it so fashionable and modern.  Second is the spiked padded base which not only makes the shoe comfortable, but also gives me added height. Third is the soft leatherette material that does not rub off my heels and toes. 

And lastly, what's not to love about the color and design? It just goes well with everything in my closet. It is definitely a worthy addition to my wardrobe.  It compliments my personal style. And lastly, it is reasonably priced at only P1,599.

So with that, I'd give this pair.....

Now I can't wait to get my second pair. How about you? Do you own a Comfit or any comfortable shoe that you just fell in love with? I'd love to hear your shoe story.
