When I think casual, I usually think tennis shoes; that was until recently. As a person who enjoys dressing well, wearing tennis shoes for casual events works at times, but not always. As most of my readers know I have been working with Rockport recently and though as you saw in my last post, I was impressed with their dress shoes, I can say that I did not know that they had more casual shoes until a few weeks back. At this time, Rockport asked me to take on a challenge and try out a pair of their more casual styles from their Fall/Winter ’14 collection.
I received a pair of their Parker Hill Desert Boot. From the beginning I really liked the color. I was a bit skeptical at first about how I would like the boot cut of the shoes, but as I wore them I got more used to this and I found them to be comfortable and the additional ankle support was nice too.
In wearing these shoes I found that they could be worn with anything from jeans to dress slacks. This was something that I would not have normally expected, but I was happy to find that this was the case. There definitely were a few other shoes from the collection that looked The shoes were comfortable and with the fact that they were equipped with sport technology, it did feel like I was still wearing a tennis/running shoe which was a nice change.
There were definitely a few other shoes from the collection that looked fun. Though I did not try them, I liked the style and color of the Ledge Hill 2 Plaintoe Oxford and the blue coloring of the Parker Hill Captoe Oxford was so unique, I would be interested to see how they would look on me, as it was hard to imagine just looking at them in a picture.
In the end for me what I love most is that these shoes can go with pretty much anything I can think of (well… maybe not shorts). Having versatile shoes that look and feel good is so important and I have nothing but positives to share about this collection. Check them out here and see for yourself. What shoe would you choose for yourself?
